Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day. Hoping everyone has someone special to spend it with or at least think of if you can't be in the same place.

I am doing much better. Am walking around he house with no crutches and only using them when I'm out as a just incase. I'd rather have them and not need them than to fall and rehurt myself. I see the otho in the middle of next week so hopefully then the boot and crutches will be a thing of the past.Hubby is getting very tired of doing the laundry and grocery shopping. He was very happy when I took over the kitty box duties last week.

On Friday I decided to give it a try and see how my foot reacted to walking on it . I am happy to report that I can walk on it again. I'm still using the crutches so that I don't over stress it but I have been going into the kitchen where I have a counter in front of me to hold onto just incase and walking back and forth when I am in there. It was 5 weeks last Friday that I fell down the steps and did this to myself.

Now for the vain part. My broken foot looks bigger than my non broken foot and it drives me crazy. I am hoping I get my matched set back eventually. People have always made remarks about how dainty my feet look so the vain in me doesn't want one Flintstone's foot and a dainty one to go with it. :( I know it's silly but it really has been bugging me. Hubby assures me that by summer when anyone else would see it it will be ok.

I made dinner last night all by myself and it was wonderful! :)

My First Le Crueset

Isn't it beuatiful? This is a Le Creuset 7.5 quart Bouillabaisse/soup Pot. I can't wait to use it. Unfortunately I'm not able to stand without crutches yet so most of my cooking is being done as a coop effort which doesn't always work out too well. Hubby has a tendancy to want it to be done before it's time. :( HELP! LOL

Ice Storm of '09

It seems that few people worldwide or even nationwide are paying much attention to what is happening here in the midwest. So far 42 people have froze to death over the past 8 days and so far zero help from the federal government. Yesterday the Govenor of Kentucky was sent all of the Ohio National Guard's Humvees to try to start getting to the out of the way places where there is zero heat and power in sub zero temps. We would've sent them sooner except we had out own outages and people stuck in the out of the way places in SE and SW Ohio. Two of our local schools set up shelters for those who were without power. One night over the weekend it got down to -10ºf.

I'm really really angry right now. After listening to the media and what they did with Katrina and Fema when they were on site within 3 days and here we are OVER a week out and still not a finger lifted from the federal governement? Not a peep from Obama? Yeah, he threw a Superbowl party instead, ate wagyu-steak, and turned the temp up in the oval office to 72ºf while 42 people in the midwest froze to death because they were stuck where they were because no one sent plows in to help dig them out. Might I point out that it was 80ºf when Katrina happened, not -10ºf! There is growing fear that the 42 will grow as soon as the NG can get house to house. I'd imagine we will find whole families dead trying to stay warm.
