Just going to watch some TV, maybe pop in something Christmassy.

Have a great day!!!
so many not well here, are you all cleaning your keyboards?
Glad you are starting to feel better.

Oh for sure! I think they show you those videos in birthing class too prepare the dads for something that can be somewhat traumatizing if you are not ready or are queezy about things. But still you have to go through it to really understand and now I do. I remember crying so hard after it was all over,I think I was more teary than her! looking back it still chokes me up!

as long as I do not walk it is fine! The brace is so uncomfortable, it rubs on the inside of my knee and makes it feel worse so I just leave it off now and just walk carefully. Getting a cane this afternoon which I was told was my other option. Will see how well that works.

Just listened to an episode of the Merry Podcast from September 2012 about Christmas in the 1940s. It was excellent! And, it featured the lovely voice of CM3. It was a blessing to hear her!
