Although I have been spending most of my time at home, I understand that the leaves are beginning to turn. I am not ready! I guess I will have an opportunity to see for myself when we drive to Rutland on Tuesday, 9/4 for my total hip replacement. I never thought I would be looking forward to surgery, but to be out of this pain and to begin the healing process will be wonderful!
The sight of bright yellow school buses means that school is back in session. It always seems to me that something new and exciting should be starting at this time of year, even for those of us who are no longer in school. Perhaps we should all become motivated to participate in an activity that is challenging and fun!
