I got my cast off on Wed. Now I just have to wear a splint/brace for two weeks then back to the Dr. I still can't do any lifting. I can take it off to shower (Yea!!) and I have to exercise it. He said to put my arm under water and make a fist then flex my hand etc. then after a while I can start to move my hand up and down to bend my wrist. Boy is it stiff and painful right now! I can hardly move my thumb. It does feel wonderful to get that cast off though! Knitting is just around the corner.
We got a new washer and dryer! Aren't they the prettiest things? I love them! Sometimes I go in the laundry room just to look at them. So does Martina, she will sit there for the longest time watching the clothes go around.
MY STEELERS WON THE SUPERBOWL!!!!!!! Wow it was a really close game. We literally won in the last 45 sec. of the game. I love games to be that close though. I really don't like a game to seem too easy. I like when it comes down to the last couple minutes, on the edge of your seat. I really like it when they go into overtime. I am so glad they won. So the Steelers are the only team to have won 6 superbowls!!! We are the winningest team in the NFL! GO STEELERS!
My latest book was "Bastard out of Carolina" by Dorothy Allison. I give it 4 out of 5 stars. If I could split the book into thirds, I would say the first third was great and the last third was really great, but the middle third was getting very monotonous. It was about a girl known as "Bone", how she lives through her family's poverty and the abusive hands of her stepfather. This book is very sad but does show wonderful extended family support! I do recommend this (just a little slow in the middle).
