It seemed that things were going swimmingly in late January. We had just received a glowing write up on the cover the New York Times Wednesday food section, (here’s the piece, http://bit.ly/VSYuhe). Then one Friday, I felt a slight twinge in my right knee. With a stretch of twelve hour workdays ahead of me I resorted to my cane again. It was no help. Within days, both knees were balky and I spent all of February and all of March so far, wandering around assisted by a cane.
It’s depressing, yes, but more importantly, it’s exhausting. I get home from eight hours of retail and I only have energy to eat and slink off into bed. No time for blogging.
This post doesn’t mark the end of that phase; it’s hard to rehab knee issues by being on your feet eight to ten hours a day. I woke up today and found I couldn’t bend my left knee more than say 135 degrees. However, this series of posts does mark a renewed commitment to this space. It’s part of me and part I hope not to neglect in the future.
