Bummer Andy. I won't say to give her a hug, 'cause that might not be a good idea yet.

Man! Don't you hate it when other people interfere with your personal space!? I feel your pain.

Sorry to hear about the break. At least it's after your guys' vacation.

Well that sucks. Right arm, left arm? More importantly, is it the shoulder for her dominant hand? If so, please tell me you won't have to brush her teeth or help with other, um, less genteel, hygiene functions. Hope she has better living through chemistry until she's all healed up.

Oh no!! Good thoughts!!!

This morning the light dusting was just enough to cover and hide the thick ice areas left over from last week's thaw. I've been learning to tap dance most of the day.

Soup. It might be what's for dinner... if I get out. I haven't made chicken soup in a while and I'm due.

Yak-Trax! You guys need Yak-Traks! Shrek wears them when he goes out on the ice, so do I!

Andy, when I had heart surgery, the doctor told me I wasn't allowed to run the sweeper. He didn't say for how long. That was in 2008, and DH is still running the sweeper. Don't let her pull that one on you! LOL

Hope the Vicodin does the trick!

My daughters actually gave me those as a gift a couple of years ago. Still haven't used them.
