Stoplight crow

Do not pass go into physical therapy.  Yes, that's right.  It's pointless for Michael to go, despite his doctor suggesting it.  I'm beginning to think that his doctor is feeling really bad about Michael's situation, and letting him try things to help him feel better.  There is no way in hell that he's ready for physical therapy.  The lady he saw today was a bit weird, but nice and honest.  It boiled down to the fact it would be ludicrous for Michael to use up some of his 25 alloted sessions to have this woman move his foot around, not to mention that we'll be paying a portion of them.  I'm really glad she was honest about things, and it was good to have the visit and get a baseline for where he stands (or doesn't, as the case may be).  Michael sees his doctor again on the 13th, and will have more x-rays and we'll see how things go...

In other news, it's starting to feel slightly vaguely almost like spring out there.  In fact, some of the plants are getting a little overzealous and sprouting and blooming early.  There are daffodils starting to open up!  That may not seem strange to some people, but it is REALLY EARLY for them here.  I'm happy to see all of the trees with their little green proto-buds just waiting to burst forth.  I love autumn, but I really love spring because the rebirth of greenery always makes me feel so good.
I'm really looking forward to getting back into the garden, but the ground is just so wet and the weather isn't quite right yet.  But seeds are on sale this weekend so I'll be getting some of those!  My poor garden has been sort of neglected - it's going to be a lot of work!  This is my goal for this year - giant cauliflower and broccoli leaves!
