The past few months have been crazy. I had a ton of training classes to go through, and finally finished those all up. I hold several different licenses, and for some stupid reason....I had them all coming due within 4 weeks of each other. Ugh, so I had a ton of them. I finished those up, then took, survived and actually enjoyed a fire training class that lasted a month.
Meanwhile, my shoulder has been hurting off and on since October. Actually, it was hurting more on, then off. So finally, I went to the doctor. Since I have no memory of injuring it, we thought we would start checking the medical end. So, I had blood work and a mammogram. (That all came back ok). But, while waiting for the results, I bumped my elbow and shoulder one evening, a Friday evening and it was rather painful. Knowing I would be very uncomfortable I went into Urgent Care. The doctor felt it, and then took an x-ray. That proved to be interesting--it was dislocated. I have no idea how, or when that happened. However, I do (as embarrassing as it is to admit) have a habit of falling out of bed every few months (since I was a kid, I periodically fall-but usually when I have one of those weird dreams that I can fly). So, all I can figure out is that I was flying and did a crash landing.
So, I have been having physical therapy on it a couple times a week now, to get the shoulder and arm muscles strengthen back up and stretched back out. Evidently, since it was dislocated I was carrying my arm different and the muscles weakened as a result.
Normally, the girls and I would have the garden in by now, but with my shoulder the way its been, I haven't gotten to much done. But, that ended up being ok, since on May 2 we got freezing temps and snow.
Along with the snow, came a new litter of kittens, with another litter due soon. Momma Cat had them under my bathroom window on the deck. Leaves had blown up on the deck and made a pile in the corner-Momma Cat made a bed there for her 4 little ones.
We also have a new calf that Daisy Mae surprised us with.
