What a whirlwind year! Erik had a great football season. We had a houseful for Thanksgiving as always. We had a very Merry Christmas and a very quiet New Year - I think we were in bed at 10:30. I had hernia surgery December 14. We thought that there were 3 hernias and were surprised to learn there were 7. I'm still recovering. No lifting over 10 pounds and very limited work outs. I am going to try water aerobics for the first time since December and it's almost February.
Classes are going well for all three of us and Erik is testing the waters at a small Presbyterian church in Indianola.
We added a second dog in November - his name is Root (he prefers to be called Roo Roo) and he is all puppy still. The best part about being released by the surgeon on February 8th is that I will be able to run with Cache and walk with Root and wear them both out a little bit.
Hopefully I can get back to regular posting - it can be hard to keep things interesting on a personal blog when it feels like many of the changes in our life are gradual.
