It is a losing battle here against the oak trees. In the early spring every single freaking leaf falls from them. I rake every few days just to keep up. A short time later, we are inundated with pollen and those little crackly things. You cannot win.
It makes it 100 times worse if it rains. Our patio is a giant MESS.
More leaves fall every time a breeze blows through or it rains. This weekend I will rake and sweep. Consider it part of my home therapy program...There is a LOT of yardwork we need to attend to. Trimming lantana, raking leaves, pulling weeds.
My friend Carol used a boot box to transport Christmas gifts to us. It's the perfect size for storage in my closet. Sorry, Carol, I'm keeping it! I glued some wrapping paper on and tied it with a bow. Inside are day runner inserts and datebooks spanning 20+ years. In a way, they are my journals. Reading them gives me a sense of how
insane different life was when I had four young ones at home.
My plant babies languished in the garage for 4 months. I am surprised they all lived. The big ones got put back in the backyard. All of them got fed. I like the look of real potted plants in terra cotta.
Kinesiology tape - have you ever seen this stuff? My PT lady was not 100% on board with it, but wanted to give it a try, so I said sure. Anything and everything that might help me, I will do. She also suggested I use the Wii Fit that I have *cough* never used.
Our console had long since ceased to play games, but a trip to Game Over and $60 got us a new one. I'm not sure why I never even tried it - it's seriously kicking my rear on the balance games. And improving my balance is high on the PT's list of things I need to do. One week left to go before I return to work!
