In The Summertime!


It’s hot here.

I spent an evening with friends who live in San Clemente last weekend.

It made me want to move to the beach.

Of course, I always want to move to the beach ….


My first choice would be Santa Barbara, but (being realistic) I doubt if I can afford to go anywhere – especially there.

Oh well, I’ll just blast the a/c all summer like everyone else.

(Although, I did go look at some beautiful model homes with ocean views on Sunday, because why not just LOOK?)

Anyway, I’m probably going to be a little scarce with blogging until sometime after the 4th of July.

I’ve got forty bazillion appointments all over Southern California this week.

Tomorrow marks eight weeks since my elbow surgery which means I need to go visit the surgeon up in L.A. this week, also.

I’m hoping I get my brace off … or, more likely, get to take it off at least SOME of the time.

Paul Newman played with my arm (minus my brace!) yesterday.

I was super scared because I have “Eleven Surgery Stress Disorder,” but my arm is definitely doing much better.


Also, I know this sounds absolutely ridiculous for “normal” people, but I’m now doing arm exercises with a one pound weight.

Don’t laugh … this is groundbreaking for me!

(OK, you can laugh!)

It’s the first time in ten years I’ve been able to move my arm in certain ways – let alone with any additional weight.

I’m super excited about it, and know I’ll be able to do more soon.

If I don’t get a chance to post again before the 4th of July, and I may not,

I hope my American readers have a very happy, safe, holiday!

P.S.  Frank has lost TWO of his baby teeth!  He’ll be 20 weeks old this Friday!

    Congrats on the arm progress. To actually use additional weigh is amazing-even if it is a baby rattle! I use those in PT for my wrists. Have a happy 4th!

    Yay to the one pound weight!!! Such exciting news. Hope the surgeon is as happy with your arm as you are and you are allowed to take the brace off some of the time. Have a great 4th July!
