My knee surgery (lateral release and meniscal debridement) was just over 2 weeks ago, but it feels like it’s been so much longer. Time must be passing slowly because being on crutches and in a brace is actually kind of a bummer. I can’t drive and it’s just a struggle to go out, so I’ve been attached to my bed and Netflix (my new Eucalyptus sheets add to the amazingness). Any good suggestions? I recently watched Happy Valley (the first season) and The Affair (Showtime-season 1) and both were amazing.
Also, I’ve been going to physical therapy twice a week and working on my moves at home. I really can’t wait until I can be active again. Seeing the atrophy of the muscles around my knee following an entire year of being injured and two surgeries really motivates me to regain my strength; I feel so weak. Strength training is going to be my focus this year.
In other news, I’ve been slowly composing a design plan for my living room/kitchen revamp project. The big projects are going to be pulling out the carpet and having laminate flooring installed and replacing the ceiling fan. I’m lucky to have a handy hubby. For the decor, my color scheme is tan and gray with hints of teal and burnt orange. I want the space to be a mix of antiqued/rustic inspired pieces with geometric/ modern accents. Also, I’m going to incorporate plants, probably a rubber plant and succulents (because I love succulents!!). Everything will come together slowly and be budget friendly and I’ve found some great pieces of furniture and have some price-tracked. Here’s a small inspiration board I’ve created!
