hip update  
It's been almost a week since I used both crutches. I just use one on the left now, and I put less than 50 pounds of weight bearing on the crutch (I weigh about 200 pounds).

I finally have some money. :) I got my car fixed. I can drive. I can walk about a mile before needing a nice break. Did I say "break"? Heehee. I have a disabled parking placard.

I can ride roller coasters without pain. I can sleep on my side with a bit of moving around to get comfy! That's helping me sleep almost through the night. I can shower without using a chair in the shower!

I've been spending some time on ebay. The people at the nearby post office recognize me! I'm thinking of hitting some garage sales to try to find things I can resell for fun and profit.

weepingmoon is still a good cook and a big help.

That would be cool. :)
She needed lots of adjustments... had a major service done... one of the main problems was the spark plug gap being too big.

Also she needed front brake pads and brake rotor work.

Don't you still have a heap of stuff left from your cleaning efforts? I'd say it's best to ebay that off first, before you start acquiring new stuff on the off-hand chance that you can turn a profit of it...

Glad for the good news
Glad to know you're doing better Ashi. And I have to say... you might be the only person I've known or will ever know who would ride a rollercoaster with a broken hip... And no, I'm not sure how you should take that! *chuckles*
Have fun. I wish I could go with you all to the boardwalk but it's a long trip from the east coast....

It's great to hear that you're on the mend and doing so well. Keep up the good work. :)
