Excuse Me

... for such a short entry.  I haven't been sleeping very well because of the pains in my knee and groin.

Last night, I jerked awake at 5am, the pain in my knee was excruciating!   I turned onto my back and crossed my legs to elevate my knee, but this caused lower back pain.  Before Kelly left, I asked her to put my small black cushion under the small of my back, thinking that this would ease the pain in that area. It did, but then my neck began to hurt.  I tossed and turned, trying to fall back to sleep, but I didn't succeed.

Last week, I was in a funk from which I could not escape no matter what I tried.  Stress, the gloominess of the weather, and missing Mom and Rob, all contributed to my bad mood. 

However, oddly enough, my mood has improved since I twisted my knee.  It just seems so ridiculous that I had this annoying groin pain for five months, and then my knee was injured in the same side.  Like my mother always said, when misfortune follows you around like a lost puppy you can choose to either cry or laugh it off.  I choose to laugh it off.

By the way, did anyone notice that it was daylight (bright and sunny!) at 5pm?  Is Spring truly just around the corner?

I hope so!
