Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!
Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?
All are welcome! Just add your link to the Linky-List, and be sure to visit others and join in their conversations! The link will be open from May 18th at 7am (Pacific Time) until Monday May 21st at 7pm (Pacific Time) to give us a good range of “weekend”!
Last weekend I overdid it a bit. I didn’t do much- just went to my Dad’s – but I ended up standing more than I had planned, and probably more than I should have. But part of it was because I was SO excited about the fact that I’d gotten new shoes.
I went into the shoe store Saturday morning with very specific criteria: I needed a sandal that was the exact same height as the surgical boot I’m wearing, with a back-strap and adjustable straps. The theory being that I’d be able to wear the left-shoe now, while I still have the boot on the right foot. Because none of my other shoes are the right height, the tiny difference was causing a bulging disc in my back to press even more strongly against the nerve, causing tingling and pain in my good side whenever I was standing for more than a few seconds. Shoes of the proper height eliminate that issue!
And, then once I graduate to weight-bearing physical therapy and can get out of the boot I can start wearing the RIGHT sandal as well. Since my foot will probably still be swollen, that will require the adjustable straps.
I was successful in this mission, and happily stood with my equal-height shoes. But it was still standing, which still uses the muscles and bones in my feet a bit more than they’re quite ready for, so I spent a lot of Monday a bit more sore than I would have expected. However, as the week wore on things settled a bit more. I’m still far from completely healed, but it’s nice to be making progress!
I’d offer you some scones, if we were having coffee. I have some delicious Gluten-Free one’s that I can heat up. I’m planning on enjoying some super-early on Saturday morning, because I’ve decided to go ahead and join my Mom in watching the royal wedding (which is at something like 4am my time). It’ll be fun, and I can then take a nap before getting on with the other things I am doing over the weekend!
What are you up to this weekend? What does the coming week have in store for you?
