Sunday Blahs

With Marti laid up, we're not able to do too much today.  I kind of feel like I have no energy.

Marti is already feeling frustrated with her lack of mobility.  She hates crutches.

She complains that she can't get around fast enough, she feels she can only move as fast as a slow snail.

She said maybe she'd do better in a wheel chair.  I think she'd like this model:

She says it's so hard for her to get up to "powder her nose".  I think this model would solve that problem:

We have a new morning ritual.  Marti is a coffee fiend and I can't stand the stuff.  But she has now trained me in the mysterious art of coffee brewing, and this is why:

Tomorrow hopefully, we'll be able to get an appointment with the orthopedic doctor to get a final read on Marti's broken ankle.  Will she or won't she need surgery?  Can she get a walking cast?  How soon can she go back to work?  And the big question, asked by our daughter Heather:  How long will it take to heal?  She asked that because we have booked a trip to Disney World in March.  If Marti is still in a cast and needs a wheel chair to get around, we get to go to the front of the lines! ;c)

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.


  1. well our 'blah day' was not as good as yours...hope Marti gets good news!!

  2. Good to see you are broadening your skills, making coffee can be a new career, maybe being a barista at Starbucks would keep you busy after retirement ;)

    Hope Marti gets better quick, you got places to go and things to see.

  3. Hope you get good news on Monday!!

    But not so good that your lose you Disney, "FAST PASS!!"

    Just kidding Marti... but might be nice to have someone push you around and go to the head of the line!!

    Take care and BE PATIENT...

  4. Hey where did you get that picture of my wheelchair? :D

    Marti, I've been in your "shoe" and I know living on the sofa is no fun! I'm sure you will find a way to get moving around after the pain and swelling goes down.

    Hang in there and know that we are still sending good vibes and prayers your way!!!


  5. The NASA looking wheelchair has potential, but the portable head looks a bit dicey.

    Hope the doctor had good news.

  6. Seriously, a wheelchair is not a bad idea. Crutches are difficult to handle, and she certainly doesn't want to be running around Disney World on them.

  7. Diana - agreed! I now have a w/c for the house... wow, sooo much easier!
