I can wiggle my toes again!

and I can even make a full circle with both ankles!

I've been working through the pain to try to get some movement back in my ankles after 2 and a half weeks of limping around. Today I finally feel so much better! I'm glad it coincided with my husband coming home. I felt so good last night that I managed to make 3 varieties of muffin for my husband to take to work to thank them all for how kind they've been to him through this. We got $400 from the hospital to help with his travel expenses from a sharing fund they all contribute to. I was so overwhelmed with all the generosity and every little bit helps when you're faced with that sudden expense. I tried a half of a chocolate chip muffin and let the other go un-tested : )

It's freezing here in the ATL. My husband said it's colder here than in Scotland. I feel sorry for the little kids going out trick-or-treating on Friday. I hope it's a little warmer by then. Trick-or-treating is interesting in the "hood". We get lots of adorable kids early on then some thug teenagers with no costumes later on in the evening so we usually turn the light out early. I never worry about them much because they really don't like dogs and tend to stay away from any house that has them.

I will be casting my vote proudly for Obama on Friday night. It's the last day of advanced voting and I figure it will be less crowded that night since everyone who has kids will be busy. I'm looking forward to getting that done so next Tuesday I can sit in front of the TV and watch it all unfold. I have never in my life been so passionate about my choice for president which makes this year very exciting.

Anyway, it feels so much better to feel better. I wish it was Friday! I'm looking forward to a weekend of catching up on quality time with my husband and dogs. I think I'll even be able to start walking again for exercise. I can't believe how much I miss it. That is a good thing!
