New toys are GOOOOOOD

i have two new cameras-a minolta 110 zoom (lomography.com has a new line of 110 films!) and a olympus LT 35mm. they are so cool! i've shot one and a half rolls of the minolta, and just started a roll in the olympus. the minolta's turned out fabulous! so color-rich.i'm really excited about this camera.  i used the lomography 110 200 and tried hard not to jiggle it. even the sort of blurry ones i liked. you might notice i took lots of pics of the same red-flowered bush. it comes to bloom in the spring, i don't know what it is, and it doesn't last long. not even a month.  so every year i snap lots of shots.

i've been doing better pain-wise too. i saw an orthopedic surgeon and he took more xrays. he said i have so much arthritis built up on my pelvis that it meets in the middle, in the front. my pain level as you may recall was a 9. i started doing my PT exercises every day, and lots of yoga. i do a dvd called Big Yoga, for big bodies. i still can't get on the floor, so i do it on the bed. he also gave me a pain med that i took once before for my back and it helped. my pain level went from a 9 to a 2.  now i am awaiting back xrays to go forward with that.

jeremy just graduated from college. we are trying to figure out how to do this relocating thing. of course we want to be in oregon with  my family. but he hasn't gotten a job yet and our insurance runs out soon. so he will have to find one here, u ntil he gets one in Portland, or another city close to my son and his family.  he got an interview in Nashville, tho....
