So what's new? I wish I could say I had a whole lot to report on, but not so much! On a good note, my (near 3 year work injury) set of tendon injuries in my one ankle seems to be feeling better and better each week. Since the setback I had 2 1/2 months ago with it, I think things finally might be turning on that end for the better.
The bad part about it, I may have mentioned my knee before. Years ago I tore the cartilage in it, while sitting at work, because I was stupid and used to fold my knees up under me to sit. Well it's been an injury that comes and goes. Goes the better I keep the muscles built up in my knee, comes when they get weaker or smaller.
Well very little activity the past few months, knee muscles must be very small. I got the cartilage caught under my knee cap and the past 3 days have been seriously painful. To the point I would almost fall over at times walking. It seemed like all my normal tricks to get it out weren't working. But luckily this morning I did my absolute best and pulled on my knee cap and moved my knee around and snap it came back almost all the way out. Can't tell you how happy I am about that! The pain is near bearable now and I think should be gone by tomorrow if I can get the last part of it out tonight.
I did a little target shooting this past week, 100+ yards with someones new weapon, (not my own). If you have followed my blog you probably already know I am a not so humble fairly good shot, with various weapon types. LOL
It's ironic I am typing this right now, because I am sitting listening to quite a bit of gunfire down the street. The house the city forced my neighbors out so they could expand the road. Until the city decides to do the work, they are using the house to train S.W.A.T teams and sometimes it's a little loud with the shots. (We are all upset the city moved these awesome neighbors out of their homes that they had been in for 60+ years.)
Anyhow, I side tracked there for a second. But ya shooting a new weapon there is always a little training and learning curve to get used to it to be completely accurate. But lets just say from shot 1 til the end, I hit the target every single time and was never more than 2-3 inches off my mark.
Yes, a little work is needed, but at the distances I was shooting at, I am still pretty impressed. Just wait until I have a little more practice with it, they'll all be in the orange!. Oh, and the other men around at the range, never expected a girl to shoot that good! But they never do, LOL
So I won't go into much more details. I have a lot to do this week, one thing of which includes making a real swimable mermaid fin for my nieces birthday this weekend. I bought a mono-fin and saw something on pinterest so instead of paying $150 for one, I am going to pull this off under $35. It's going to be awesome, she's going to love it. The little girl that is always inside of my still coming out, wants one too, LOL
Looks like winter is here, we've had a little snow the past week and it looks like another big storm is rolling in over the mountain as I type now. Which reminds me, I have got to go figure out where I put my window scraper from my old vehicle and put it in my new car, that and my windshield cover! I really hope I stuck it in my shed! Off to go look now!
