I plan to follow y'all's advice and bring a box of tissues to tonight's book group. We Need to Talk About Kevin is so timely that it is spooky.

I cleaned the area around the Christmas tree yesterday. The tree is still up and decorated from last year. Yes, I am a lousy housekeeper; my excuse reason is that being upright on my feet for more than a couple minutes is painful. It took most of the afternoon to tidy and vacuum an area ~8'x15'. Of course, it hadn't been vacuumed in ::countsonfingers:: a long time.
I really hope this hip replacement helps. The next thing is to strengthen my back muscles, which were weakened by nearly three months in a wheelchair after I broke my ankle in 2008. It is primarily my back that hurts; the hip is generally only a problem in walking.
But I remind myself it could be so much worse, no need to tell you how. We all know how quickly life can change.
