Two years ago today….

Happy 2nd Birthday Ruminations and Reckonings!

2nd Birthday                                                           Source

Two years ago today I wrote my first blog post on Ruminations and Reckonings.  To celebrate the day I have decided to give R&R a little facelift.  If you are reading this in an email or an RSS reader, click on over to the site so you can see the new layout.

One of the changes you will see are the new menu items.  I created those a month or so ago and if you looked hard on the old site you could see them…..but now they are front and center.  Clicking on one of those menu items will take you back to all the posts related to that topic.

I wrote that first blog post about two months after my first hip replacement and about two months before my second hip replacement.  Interestingly enough, this anniversary corresponds with me preparing for yet another surgery, a complete knee replacement to happen on April 16.  Although I knew this was in my future, it came about a little faster than expected so I am having somewhat of a minor (ok major) pity party.  I know life will be even better a few months from now, but I do not relish the thought of slowing down to recover once again.

To get past this dark place I did what I do best…….make a list!!!  I am such a structured person that a list provides comfort; check things off, life is good.  I have about twenty things I need to accomplish prior to the surgery date not including a trip to Omaha and an Easter celebration.  Many of the items are related to finishing my basement makeover.

Speaking of the basement makeover, here is an update on the progress.  Remember this lonely corner I showed you…


This is how it looks today, still a few more things to do but it is looking better.


Thank you all for reading these past two years!
