Goodbye 2009............


First let me thank you all for the nice comments you made concerning my surgery last weekend. I was not in a very good place when I posted that entry. It was my worst day since the surgery. Yesterday was a much better day. The arm they gave me the vaccine in has a huge red mark with a raised area. I think I had the maximum reaction on that thing. Today I don't feel nearly as congested and the coughing has stopped. Everyone says to me that they never get flu shots or any kind of vaccine shots for that very reason. Oh well, now I am protected (so they say). We had a quiet anniversary. We are planning to have dinner out tonight. Our friends Rich and Eileen are coming with us. It will be an early dinner and then probably come home and watch the ball drop in Times Square on television. On Friday we are going to a Rose Bowl party at some friends house to cheer on our team from Oregon. Sorry Ma, from What's New at My House I know you'll be routing for Ohio State but we have to support our state team. I am finally feeling like I can maybe go to the gym and do a little on the treadmill. I don't want too much time to pass between my workouts. I missed alot in the last couple of weeks due to running out to get things for presents or baking or whatever so I need to stay in the mood or I will find myself paying for something I don't use. I've done that many times before. I want to get my money's worth out of this membership. Our new newsletter from the Y says the Zumba classes have been expanded so they will have a class in the mornings which is when I go. Now I don't have to spend all afternoon there to get that workout. I think they start next week. Well, any resolutions out there? I usually have the same one every year but now it's a given so I think my resolution will be to be kinder to those less fortunate than myself. I try and do that anyway but this year I am going to do more. Maybe volunteer at the mission more or find another way to help. Seems like we just got into the millenium doesn't it? I wish all of you a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2010. Thanks for the support of my blog this last year and all your kind comments too.

I'm amazed you can go to the gym so soon after your surgery. In the old days it was a different kind of operation I guess. I was layed down for 6 weeks afterward. I'm really not a big football fan like some are. May the best team win ! Hope your New Year is a happy one!

Glad u are feeling better. I take the shot every year, but this year did feel achy and bad for a couple days after. But nothing like the flu.
It works good for all of us, we seldome get colds when we take the shot.
I did not get swine flu shot yet, kind of wary of that one.
Happy New Year! Sounds like good goals, I am hoping to start water exercise myself next year.

Everyone I've ever talked to who has went to Zumba or goes to Zumba just loves it! My daughter is an avid Zumba fan! I should really think about going to Zumba! Gotta add that to the to-do list!
Onward! Judi
