I Over Did It with a Can Opener

Yesterday, in a flurry of energy I decided to make chicken chili. Ok, I didn't have much energy my shoulder was a bit achy from traveling and the change in weather, but I had thawed chicken so I really didn't have much choice - I had to make something with it and chicken chili seemed like a good idea on a cold day.

Day 47 – Broken Shoulder Update

I've not bothered with daily updates on my shoulder because the improvement is so incremental, sometimes not at all noticeable, other times it is as if I have gone backwards with recuperation of this blasted broken shoulder. Today is Day 47 so time for a broken shoulder update! I just returned from Orlando, FL last night. I spent the day traveling and am surprised my

Taking a Social Media Break

This past Monday I was cleared by my doctor to start physical therapy. I

The Upside of a Broken Shoulder

I like to search for the silver linings when bad things happen. If I look heard enough I can usually find something good out of something bad. Get ghosted by the Star Wars super fan after dating for months? The upside is so much blogging material I don't even know where to begin. Alive during a never ending pandemic? Upside is I learn what the

Ending 2021 on a Solid Foundation

There is a well known quote by J. K Rowling about building her foundation on rock bottom. I'm not at rock bottom, though I believe I have been where J.K was when she spoke these words: I was set free because my greatest fear had been realized, and I still had a daughter who I adored, and I had an old typewriter and a big
