Exercise..I'm Stove-up

This my therapy pool. Why I ever even tried the "Y" is because I've been desperate to swim again and my doctor said this city facility only,1 1/2 miles from my house, was for referred therapy patients only. 

       I Really Want To Go Here, Really!

I started the process so I could be referred. I went through all the hoops to be a client and that included a lot of money to dietians,and x-rays, nerve studies, bone doctors, and all that. 

When it all came to my doctor sending a referral in...(my last hurtle) he told that even though I had the right insurance, my GROUP was not a part of our town's particular pool. Workman's Comp. was the only way in.


My Steve goes regularly to this therapy pool for his injuries from his fall off of a mountain in Balcom Canyon last year about this time. He was on a fire strike team and the unstable clay sent him down and off a high bluff.

Steve asked the pool coordinator and for a cheaper amount than the YMCA; I was able to exercise. And I did...a lot!


It's a great place and I had a therapist the whole time. "Breathe!" "You have to breathe!" When it hurts... I have this bad habit of holding my breath. I feel better breathing-wise, but I think Im going to need ice tonight. I'm not complaining. I'm really, really elated I can have a super nice and clean pool and a wonderful therapist. I love it!

  But... I'm really tired and it feels good.

I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog.

It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to
come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create
your theme? Superb work!

Thank you about my site. My writing is the way I talk and I need to be better making shorter paragraphs and entries. My little "letter f" in the upper left corner bugs me. How'd it get there? "No one's going to get-off their galloping horse to point it out." Just me.

I used to write all HTML, so I've used some tweaking...but loved using "Cutest Blog on the Block" for tutorials.

Background papers are from Scrapbook designers and I use a mirrored site until all looks right with all the different browsers. I guess it's trial and error. Hahaha! I have a lot of errors and that's okay.

I just need to slow-down and get back scheduling time to write in my blog.

You're awesome to write and leave me such a sweet message and so appreciated! Thank you!
