Friday, May 25th. It was a chilly day compared to that perfect spring day we had yesterday. Today's high +8 and tonight they are calling for a chance of frost. Must remember to cover up the eggplants in the garden!

Daytime:  Work.
Evening:  Recovery mode.  I hurt my knees during the school's fundraising walk-a-thon so it was off to see the chiropractor to see if he could shift my left knee cap back into place. And then it was home to pop a Tylenol 3 and ice the knees.

Sunday, May 27th.  Cold and rainy spring day.  

Daytime:  Spent seven hours at the sports injury clinic waiting to have a doctor take a look at my knees. While there I managed to read a few more pages of my book, flip through some outdated magazines and drank horribly bad hot chocolate from a vending machine.
Evening:  Iced my knees, popped another Tylenol 3 and thought about all the laundry I didn't manage to get done this weekend.
