Sorry, Dawg. My day was pretty crappy, pain-wise. The knee replacement isn't coming any too soon.

This may be addressed elsewhere, but just want to express my disappointment in the revelations about Lance Armstrong's bicycling downfall. What a waste of his talents and energy all this time. So sad that he felt he had to resort to cheating and apparently took lots of others along with him. Phooey. I was joking about it yesterday, but on reflection don't think there's much funny about it.

My legs have been hurting all day but I didn't think much of it. A few minutes ago I went to put my PJ's on and noticed they are swollen, almost twice the normal size.
My calves mostly. Wonder what brought this on !?
My legs have been swollen before but never this bad.

What the news doesn't tell you is that his "team" is also banned from competitive cycling. They have lost their souce of income. His sponsors spent a lot of money on him. They too now have a black eye. And donations for his Foundation has dropped considerably. He had to step down because of the black name his presence was giving it. The ripple effect just keeps growing.

The use of PEDs in professional sports used to anger and surprise me. Now it just saddens me. My assumption is, I would not be surprised by any athlete's being caught using them - bar none.

My shoulder hurts, and because it hurts I've been moving my arm differently and lifting things oddly. Now my elbow hurts too. CRAP!!!

I changed the sheets on my bed this morning and couldn't find the matching pillowcases! I usually fold them and put them between the folded bottom sheet and folded top sheet so I have the set all together but I don't know where they went. So I had to go into my spare pillow cases and find ones that won't look too awful with my new quilt.
