Wednesday November 2nd ~๐Ÿ’ž

 Remember how far you’ve come, not just how far
 you have to go. You may not be where you want
 to be neither are you where you used to be...

Fort Myers has a lot of work in removing the boats that 
crashed, were ruined during Hurricane Ian's wrath.  Slowly 
but surely it is happening.  This is from our bedroom window,
 and it's what keeps Arvid on the balcony for long periods 
throughout the day.  Something to see. He misses the being 
busy always in Branson, but loves the view we have here.

Everyone is not more relaxed once I was done with surgery and 
all went well.  Yay! Step one was a total success.  My bandages 
had no bleeding, and I did not even have to take any pain killers.
  I have no pain as of today ๐Ÿ˜  Now I feel like a fraud.  And on top
 of that Arvid is doing everything ๐Ÿ˜‚  I will "fake" it for a couple 
 of more days.  You know the "I can't do any housework thing"

Yesterday we went walking.  We checked out Pinchers which 
will become our favorite happy hour spot.  We did go there one time
 since moving, but 5 days after Hurricane Ian put it out of commission. 
 Boats pile up everywhere, finally some are being removed,  Slowly.

Sniff is not getting too much sleep because he's focused on
 Arvid's constant movement.  Arvid is in perpetual movement. 
 The man can't sit still, he has to be doing something all the time.
  Even wearing me out and making me even more guilty because I am 
not doing that much as yet.  I did make lunch, but he did the dishes.

Today I plan on taking Arvid out to lunch to give him a break
 from housework ๐Ÿ˜‚  Looking forward to having a little more solid 
food also.  Been having soup the last two days.  It's good still have 2 
more meals of it that I made before surgery.  Will be nice to chew
 on some food rather than swallow most of it, as in broth only ๐Ÿ˜‚

To all a good day.  All is good here and I have learnt as Ellen Degeneres
 says: it is our challenges and obstacles that give us layers of depth and
 make us interesting. Are they fun when they happen? No. But they
 are what make us unique. And that’s what I know for sure… I think.

The human spirit is stronger than 
anything that can happen to it...
