With my new knee and my focus being on PT and just moving around as normally as possible I almost forgot about blueberry picking. Luckily CR looked at the website and found out that they opened for picking on the 17. So today we went out to our favorite organic blueberry farm and picked 19 pounds of blueberries. CR picked 2 buckets full and I only got one bucket full. It's not easy when you have a new knee to pick those suckers and it's exhausting and thanks to the pain meds buckets of sweat poured off of me. Wow, not the fun time I usually have. CR also helped me wash and dry them, put them in baggies and get them into the freezer. Man I hate not being able to pull my weight and do my part. We are going to try to go out again tomorrow and another day to get enough put up for the winter.
Our cabinets got inspected this past Sunday and 2 of them have to be re-ordered. One of the two looks like someone dropped it off of a truck. So that will hold up any remodeling till the new cabinets arrive. Just as well, allows me more time to get this knee in better shape.
When I came home from the hospital I was on a 12 long lasting pain med with another pain med prescription for when I had break through pain. Well the long lasting pain med ended on Saturday and I'm having a terrible time getting the other pain med to work. I seem to have to take one every 4 hours and honestly I start pacing every 3.5 hours waiting for the 4th hour and relief. It's crazy. I may call the doctor. The thing is I hate pain meds, so I don't want more, but I also am having issues with the pain. What a big baby, right.
Still no sewing or embroidery. Before it was lack of focus, now it's pain issues and trying to get myself on a schedule that accommodates these issues.
Happy Stitches and Hugs,
