My big news/accomplishment over the weekend is that I was able to wash my hair without needing to support/rest my arm on the shower wall -- not even once -- for the first time since I fell on 9/1. It wasn't pretty and it wasn't without discomfort, but I did it! Another PT appointment is coming up later this week, and I continue to do my exercises... mostly... except for that one that really hurts like hell most of the time.
I was "home alone" for much of Saturday and putzed around the house. I settled on organizing some of my knitting books and sorting through printed patterns. I am short several lifetimes in terms of all the patterns and yarn at my fingertips (though I am safe to say there is much more of the former than the latter). There's already pre-ordered yarn and two tote bags coming home with me from Rhinebeck this year, but I think I'm going to (try to) concentrate mostly on all of the lovely people, and on falafel and maybe even on artichokes french. I haven't had any of those the last few times because the line is always incredibly long... but there's far less chance to get in trouble when I'm standing in line, isn't there?! And the line sticks right out into a big thoroughfare, so it's like a knitter net. Ha. Yeah.
On Sunday, I watched a miserable Packer game at a sports bar with Kate. We've done that for every game this year except for the Bills game, when we took an opportunity to actually go to the game! Afterwards, we met Ali & Malina and headed down to Ikea in Oak Creek! She was really much happier than she looks... charming everyone! Late Sunday is definitely the time to go to Ikea. The drive wasn't too bad (would have been better without the rain) (I am so sick of the rain!), and the baby was a peach -- she sits in the cart like a champ! Like she's been doing it for weeks! Haha.
