and so it continues

Well. It's been 47 days since the great "dog-vs-knee" event. I'm happy to say that I no longer have to wear the knee immobilizer, but I'm still stuck with the crutches - for another 4 to 6 WEEKS. I'm told NO WALKING for at least that long. While I really don't mind not going back to the office I loath, being stuck as an invalid still really sucks.

And now I have to figure out how to get my hands (and the rest of me) on an exercise bike. Those buggers aren't cheap. And I really wish I didn't have to buy one - but the only one I could find to rent was so costly, it'd be cheaper to buy one!! I was going to put the rented one in the living room, but if I have to buy my own, then it'll probably have to go up in my office/craft room.

AND...once I get my leg up and running via the exercise bike, I was planning on buying a real bike - but those TOO are not cheap. And there are so many things we need to have done to the house....

Sorry. It's gonna be a long(er) road to recovery, and I probably won't be very gracious about it. Oh well.

P. bard - it's hard to buy from craigslist, because I don't even know what I need. But no worries. We go shopping today to peruse the possibilities. How goes it with YOUR plans?

Prof. - you teach latin? I've been interested in trying that. And thank you for your thoughts. Where are you going on your virtual field trip? If I could, I'd head to the desert.
