[MOL] Christine

Hi Christine,
I am getting better but I have had to concede the superwoman title to those
who can carry it.

Arm exercises are a pain. I am trying to keep my arm moving in all
directions but yesterday I was so tired I just kind of sat all day. Today
my arm hurts more than it did when I worked.

What seems to make me feel better than anything is to go out and pull a few
weeds or dead head my flowers. I love my yard and garden and I never get to
spend enough time on them. Today I spent maybe 30 minutes deadheading spent
blooms and I really enjoyed it. That way I exercise my arm and get some
things done that need to be done.

It also helps that today it is 75 degrees instead of 105.

Take care of yourself.
