Remember Frank?

Do you remember Frank? He’s the turtle we rescued from getting squished while he was trying to cross a very busy Hamilton Avenue. These photos of him popped up today in my Timehop…

Every time we drive up Hamilton Avenue into College Hill, we always comment to each other to look out for Franks. We hope he’s doing okay in his new home. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿข๐Ÿฆ•โค๏ธ

One year ago…

One year ago today, I had my six-week post-op check-up. I still think it’s pretty crazy that all this stuff is in my body. Modern medicine is just nuts…

A year later, and everything feels really good. I don’t think I’m going to be running any marathons any time soon. But I very rarely have any sort of discomfort. I think Iโ€™ve kind of figured out what the new normal is for me now. I hope my hips stay feeling good like this for a long time to come. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅโค๏ธ

One year ago today, I had my second hip replacement surgery…

Two years ago, USL FC Cincinnati defeated MLS Chicago Fire in the US Open Cup…

And three years ago, we moved into our house in Northside…

That’s a pretty historically busy day! Thanks,ย Timehop!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฆ•โค๏ธ

One year ago today.

One year ago today, I had the first of my three hip surgeries…

And where they still have their occasional aches and pains, both hips are 100% better than they were before their replacement surgeries. Thanks, Timehop!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฆ•โค๏ธ

Oh, and I got to eat magic middles in bed…

YUM! ๐Ÿ˜€

One year ago.

One year ago today, I received this drawling from my nephew entitled,ย “Octopod for Shellington & Captain Barnacles” and it’s still one of my very favorites…

Edgerton’s early works. Thanks,ย Timehop! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฆ•โค๏ธ

One year ago today.

On October 10, 2017,ย USMNT lost 2-1 away to Trinidad & Tobagoย and as a result, they failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1986…

Today on the one year anniversary of the darkest day in U.S. Soccer history, the US Soccer Federation released this statement…ย 

โ€œToday we look forward. With the march towards 2022 underway and the 2026 FIFA World Cup in North America as our guidepost, the U.S. Menโ€™s National Team has embarked on a new journey. The hallmarks of the culture remain, with perseverance, grit and dogged determination fueled by the pride to represent the United States and each and every one of you. We take nothing for granted. The path ahead will be paved with successes and informed by setbacks. We will build strength through commitment and character, accepting challenges and rising every time we fall. We will be aggressive and play without fear, for history demonstrates that fortune favors the bold.

โ€œLike any grand project, ours is a work in progress. We cannot do it alone. Pioneering a new path forward takes the will of a generation full of optimism and hope, bound by the belief that there is nothing we cannot achieve if we are united in the cause. This is the American spirit, from which is born the American dream. It is time to take our destiny in our own hands and turn that dream into a reality. And do it together. The future isย US.โ€

Blah. Blah. Blah. The National Team has a whole bunch of bright talented youngsters that are starting to emerge from the ranks. But they still haven’t even hired a new coach for the National Team. I hope things start to get better soon for our team, and they can get thing s back to where they were and then start figuring out how to take things to the next level. But they sure are taking their sweet time.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโšฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

One year ago today, we got this awesome Twister selfie at the Cyclones game

Thanks for remembering, Timehop!ย We haven’t made it to one Cyclones hockey game yet this season. We’re hoping to get to at least one game in March now that I’m actually able to walk a better. And we definitely can’t wait to get back our normal schedule of Cyclones hockey games next season once my hips are good again.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ’โค๏ธ

One year ago today…

We were waking up in our new house for the very first time …

And we were trying to figure all this mess from our big move

What a difference a year makes…

And I don’t regret one minute of it. Best decision we’ve made. Thanks, Timehop!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿกโค๏ธ
