Limping Forward...

Did I FINALLY decide to do it???  Yes...I think the story below helped me make up my mind.  Life's too short and I'm tired. 
  Hi again!  Just popping in to check on you all and to let you know I'm still around.  We went on an impromptu visit out to see our friends in Eagle Nest, New Mexico.  We were there for a few days, then, after that, long story short...we headed home.
We arrived, stored away the motor home...packed up the tow car with our groceries from the refrigerator and came to the house.  I unlock the back door...head in to the dark playroom...try the light switch on the wall, doesn't work, so I rushed in to head to the other wall where there's another switch...wrong move in a dark room...There was an empty, opened suitcase on the floor about six feet into the room...My foot goes into it but my body lands on the floor in the opposite direction.  Needless to say, when you feel a pop on your ankle, you know what's happened.  Larry comes in shortly behind me...heard me moaning and decides to ask, "What the hell you doin' down there...?"  Seriously???
  Quick trip to Urgent Care confirmed a better scenario than the one I imagined...It was only a hairline fracture and not a full blown break.  So, I've been hobbling around (No Crutches for me! Hate the things)  using my trusty cane.  It's been three weeks now and it's healing up pretty well.  Nothing like getting an injury, to help a person put things into the proper prospective...Life's too short to run around chasing your tail...I'm tired.    

SO much swelling!!  Halfway up my leg!!  Ouch!
Believe it or not, as we were driving down the highway from New Mexico, we started seeing onions all along the highway!  We couldn't believe it.  But as we were driving in a motor home, you can't just pull over.  We waited until we found a rest stop and could only hope the truck they were falling off of, was such luck, BUT!!!  I did find about ten huge onions in the rest stop parking lot!  Did I jump out and grab them you ask?  Oh yes mam!  And they were beautiful.  Big and sweet.
Steak finger plate enjoyed while traveling at Harry's Roadside Restaurant in NM.

Larry cooked after we were home...Pork ribs and garlic potatoes.

We went to a Chinese restaurant that had been in the area for years (Kitoks)  and had hamburgers and oriental french fries.
And cinnamon buns... (I made). Well, Guess that's about it for me.  This coming Friday will be my last day on the job.  I don't mind filling in for them occasionally but I am so done with full time!  Hope you all are doing well...I'll be hopping over to check...Enjoy your day!
