This is a different kind of snowball. I signed up for a Snowball exchange swap on CQI. My very first snowball was made by Rita who is from Kansas. Rita and I have been in a few CQ swaps together and when she said she would swap with me I was thrilled as I love her work. We all signed up with the color, theme and style of snowball we wanted. Now mind you, all of this CQing is to fit in a 4.5" circle or hexagon! I of course, went with UTS (under the sea) and anything to do with mermaids. Is this not the most incredible snowball!

Today I had my first PT session. Therapist bent, pulled and measured my shoulder and arm and determined that my range of motion was far better than expected. Yea me - I guess it pays to do the mandatory exercises after surgery! I walked out of the clinic with my PT schedule for the next 2+ months. Not thrilled with the idea of 3 times a week but if it means I'll be back in my kayak fishing in the spring - I'm all for it!
For those of your who mentioned they would like to start on the Couchto5k program with me. I have to put it off a little bit longer. I tried to start the program by walking/jogging on Monday but 15 minutes into it my shoulder felt like I had a concrete brick tied to it. I mentioned it to my PT Therapist and she said it was too early after surgery to be shaking up my body like that and that I need time to heal a bit more. Hopefully I can get started in October so if anyone is serious about joining me, let me know and we can chit chat about our daily/weekly progress.
