Thanksgiving week is here and I am so glad. The past two holiday seasons have been fairly hectic for us, and this year (so far) it feels blessedly languid. Of course that is largely due to my limited mobility I am sure. I went to the doctor today and found out that I have been a little over zealous in my quest to “get back to normal.” Two more weeks of crutches for me. I cannot even put a bow on this news. It was pretty disheartening.
