Where do I start? *Edited Caption*

(This picture has nothing to do with this post, but I loved it and it was taken with my new lens)

It's been so long since I've updated that I haven't got the slightest idea of where to start.

* First - An update on my knee. I've went from just wishing they would have taken a saw to it, to a not so constant "wishing it would just get better already".
I'm in Physical Therapy 2 days a week right now. It seems to be helping. They start out the session with hooking me up to these electrodes that contract my thigh muscles and help to get them stronger, faster. I love the idea of this!! My muscles turned to mush in the week and a half that they were immobilized. Anyway, after the electrode session, we go out to the gym and do some pretty simple strengthening exercises. Honestly, I'm feeling pretty strong, it's the bending that is an issue still. As a mama, you don't realize how often you are on your knees, playing, changing diapers...etc. Till you can't anymore. It's odd to sit on the floor with my legs straight out, but whatever works I guess.
I'm just so thankful that it was my left knee. Oh my goodness, I would have been climbing the walls 10 times over now if I couldn't drive. What would I do? Stuck in "no man's land" without the use of my "pedal leg". I shutter just thinking about it. So, it could be worse. Alot worse!

*Our houses are still for sale with no lookers in over at least 2 months. We are thinking and praying about dropping the prices one more time.

*I am still couponing like crazy(I've grown out of my 2nd coupon box already). Got 4 free boxes of Quaker Simple Harvest oatmeal yesterday. It makes all the hard work worth it, for a deal like that. I want to go back for some more deals before this week is over.

*Getting my hair cut on Saturday (Lynnann, you will be getting a 25% off referral discount next time you go to Toni & Guy and I get one too yay...thanks! ) I love Toni & Guy...mostly because they massage my neck when they shampoo my hair. delish.
I have no clue how I'm getting it cut. EEK!!!

I know there is more to update on, but I can't think of anything right now while I'm sitting here.
Stay tuned for Christmas and New Years posts next!

When your blog came up on my computer all I could see of that picture was his eyes and up and he looked so much like your mom!

I'm glad your knee is feeling better!

I'll be praying about the houses. I know how frustrating that is.

Good job on the coupons. I'm so behind right now! It's hard to do all the "research" and organizing with 5 kids!

Glad to hear your knee is feeling better!

Can't wait to see the "new do" after you get your hair cut. I haven't been to Toni and Guy before. But that neck massage sounds heavenly.

Sounds like your Christmas was pretty eventful. Glad that Ray is ok. I can't believe AAA told him that it was a non emergency. 10 miles from home is not close, and especially in that kind of weather.

Very cute Christmas photos. Wyatt is one adorably handsome boy!
