Goodbye September

So september went by insanely fast! I ended up not being able to to go back to work. I have been going to a physio therapist once a week and than a trainer twice a week. They are both great ladies and I love working with them! So that has been taking up a lot of my time but I have noticed a big difference! I am hoping I will be able to go back to work soon but who knows. I just keep doing what they tell me to do and they will let me know when I am ready I guess. We thouhgt I would have been able to go by the end of september but I started having bad knee problems which really sucked. It all started when I was outside once day watering my flowers and I was just walking and my knee was really hurting me all day and all of a sudden it just gave out and I fell flat on the ground. It hurt really bad. I got back up and made it to the house but as soon as I got inside it did it again but luckily I was near the couch and caught myself. We really dont know what the heck is going on but we are assuming it has to do with we working my muscles mores and them getting tired. It has alos been hurting just above my knee right around when I have 2 bolts and we were thinking possibly they could be irritating me but I just have to keep going forward and living with it. It was doing ok with on and off bad days of knee pain until just on Friday. It all came back! It didnt give out or anything but it was just as painful! I am had to resort to sleeping with a pillow under and between my leg. Sleeping is very uncomfortable for me! It really sucks :( But since all my knee issue's I have been having it have set my back from going back to work yet. But we will see.
Anyways other than that things have been going good lately. I have been doing a lot of cleaning and organizing in my house and believe it or not I have thrown a ton of stuff away and I have a huge box of stuff to take to the thrift store today! I still have more to do but it does feel good! I just doing want to be junky. I have done a lot of sewing too which has been fun but most of my time lately has been to canning and perserving food with my mom and sister! I did strawberry rubarb jam and blackberry jam by myself at the end of the summer and since than I have done pickles, spaghetti sauce, peaches, pears, we got 27 dozen corn and cut it off the cob and froze it, Kyle and I have been picking our HUGE apple tree and I have been dehydrating them and I just started making apple pies to freeze yesterday and I am not even half way done haha and next week we are doing a ton of carrots to cut up and freeze! It has been busy but it is all worth it in the end. Kyle and I went a bought a new freezer last week because I need to more room for all my preserving! It feels good to know I have it all and it is fresh and healthy food though! And also living out of town I like having things on hand!
My prize winning pickles haha! I know I'm a dork!
