Today is Mike's birthday. So now I will no longer be 2 years older than he is anymore! Yes, I robbed the cradle. The months from November to March are always annoying since he can say that he is 2 years younger than I am. The top shot is him with his beloved poodle and the second shot is from a year ago at their last show with his other beloved. The Bloolights have been starting to play again and hopefully there will be some more live shows this year as Mike looks forward to them so much. He told me not to get him anything for his b-day since there is nothing he needed and he was perfectly content right now. Next week is his spring break and the weather should be such that he can get at least a few rounds of gold in with Chris so life is good for him.
I walked today for the first time without any assistance. I used my quad legged cane coming in from the parking lot for balance but I've been walking around the office without it. Yesterday was a real turning point for me in Physical Therapy. I finally got my Achilles tendon loosened up enough so that it doesn't kill me whenever I put all my weight on my ankle. I will have to wear my walking boot for a few more weeks but that is fine since none of my shoes will fit on my bad foot yet anyways. It is still at least a size larger than my good foot. I just bought a pair of Keens on-line with good support and an adjustable strap that will hopefully fit. Mike said that I betrayed him by buying a pair of Keens since we are always making fun of the cult of Keen wearers but difficult times call for difficult measures.
I'm happy about the response to my Spring Celebration idea so far. I have eight really amazing prizes lined up and 1 more maybe. I'm going to wait until April 1 to kick it off to give myself plenty of time to organize it. If anyone else would like to be involved please let me know. The more people involved the more buzz it will generate for all of us. If anyone can come up with a catchier title I would be happy. For some reason I'm drawing a blank.
