After these messages…

We’ll be right back. We’re going to Dallas for a few days. You can follow along with our adventures in a new city on Genifer’s Instagram and my Instagram. 😀🏖️❤️

My Swarm August Recap.

For the first time, Swarm sent me a monthly recap. According to the recap, I checked in a rather ominous 666 times in the month of August…

I still really love my check-ins on Swarm! 😀⭐️❤️

Our back patio.

After loading up on mosquito repellent, we hung out on our back patio this evening…

We love our back patio except for all the mosquitos. 😀🏡❤️

Happy Alpine Route Transporters.

When we were up in Michigan, my sister brought us back some really really great gifts from her recent trip to Japan. Among them were these incredible little bags…

I love how all the different Alpine route transporters all look so happy. And they’re so adorable. She also brought us a yellow version…

Thank you for bringing us back some incredible treasures from your trip to Japan, Shannon! That was super nice of you. 😀🚍❤️

Bay Horse Cafe to celebrate 40 years.

This afternoon the office closed a little early to walk down to Bay Horse Cafe

We paused to celebrate our CEO and fearless leader, Doug Studer’s 40th-anniversary of work at Deskey…

Forty years with one company is a very momentous achievement…

SURPRISE!

It was a fun afternoon celebrating an incredible career achievement. And Bay Horse Cafe is a great little place. I can’t wait to head back soon for another beer and maybe grab some lunch from Bay Horse sometime soon. 😀🎂🍻❤️

Thunderstorms.

As the work day neared its end, a thunderstorm started to descend on downtown…

And then the rain came down in buckets for the drive home…

It’s been ridiculously rainy lately. Taken with my Polaroid CUBE+. 😀🌧️☔️❤️

Physical therapy helps a lot.

I had physical therapy this morning and afterwards, my hips felt a lot better…

My hips always feel better after physical therapy. Unfortunately, I only have a few more sessions of physical therapy. 😀🏥❤️

Good morning from Northside.

Good morning from Northside. 😀🌄❤️

Seen and noted.

This evening we saw this sticker on the back of a car on our street…

We thought for certain that Warsaw Falcons were a sports team for some sorts. But come to find out that Warsaw Falcons are, in fact, a band that has performed both locally and regionally over 20 years. Who knew? 😀🐦❤️

My six-week post-op checkup.

Today, I had the six-week post-op check-up after my left hip revision surgery. The appointment was initially scheduled for next week but I called to have it moved it up to this morning.

Yesterday, I was experiencing a fair amount of discomfort in my right hip. I don’t know how to describe it other than it just didn’t feel right. It didn’t hurt at all. It was just no matter what I did, I just couldn’t get comfortable when I was sitting at work. It started to feel better once I got home and could lay down.

But better safe than sorry. They took X-rays of both hips together and then just the right one that was causing discomfort…

My doctor said that both hips looked great. They said that the liner slip that caused the revision surgery was very rare. The odds of it happening again or something happening to the other hip were astronomical. And that the discomfort I was experiencing was most likely a muscle issue that may arise from time to time. I’m still trying to figure out what the new normal is for me now. 😀🏥❤️
