She's pretty much healed up from surgery. Smiling and putting along on her own at home again. Baking cookies for her doctor! It was a long hard summer and fall, but so worth it. She is eighty-one years old, and amazingly tough and independent.
So life is slowly getting back on track here. My next chore is to "re-train" Journey. She has been off for months, and it has brought out her evil twin...the one I came home with a few years ago. Suddenly my leadership/partnership is down the tubes! I'm just trying to decide if it is worth working on now, only to quit again for the snow/ice portion of winter only to have to do it all over again in spring? Unfortunately ...it is how she rolls. And FAT? OMG (applicable to both of us).
