Gah, my poor mother. She fell and broke her arm a couple nights ago. This would be painful and annoying for anybody but, in her case, it's amplified. Since having hip surgery many years ago, she's had trouble walking and often relies on a cane. But, guess which arm broke? The one she uses for the cane. :-/ So, now, she can still walk but only in this weird way  where she shuffles along sideways. So, I'm trying to stick around the house while my father is at work. If the blog posts slow down, that's why. I just don't have much to post about unless I go out.

Okay, now I'm getting close to the date the accident happened. I feel bad for your mom, but I had to smile a bit at your description of how she has to walk. I know it's not funny, poor thing, but imagining her walking sideways played a little funny in my mind. Is that bad?

Ha, not bad at all. And she's improved enough where she's not doing it anymore.
