I really do suck at this whole journal writing thing.  I’m trying to blame everybody and their brother for why I’m not doing it regularly, but I can’t.  I just suck.  That, and the fact that there is nothing going on here might have something to do with it.

I’m currently waiting to see if my insurance with authorize knee-replacement surgery.  I have arthritis so bad in the one knee that it’s actually deformed.  I look knock-kneed when I stand and when I walk there are times that it jams so hard that I gasp.  Yeah.  People like me don’t go around gasping in public.  That’s not our family style.  So I made an appointment, got a useless cortisone shot (one of many over the years) and now I have another appointment to go over everything for the surgery.  The only thing left to do is pray that the insurance company authorizes the surgery without any bullshit.  I predict a butt-ton of bullshit, but I’m hoping not.  If everything goes according to plan, I’ll come home and have my surgery after vacation.

Fingers crossed.
