It’s been far too long since I’ve updated my blog. A lot has happened in the past few months, and I keep thinking about how I need to post an update, but for whatever reason just haven’t been able to find the time!
But this week I have received 3 emails from people who have mentioned my blog and I feel like that is too strong a sign to ignore, so I’m going to start trying to keep this updated more regularly from now on!
The biggest piece of news is that I have now officially moved to Chicago! I am really loving this city, but I have yet to endure a winter here, so we’ll see what I say about it in a few months! Haha.
Moving is never an easy thing to do, but I have once again been shown how lucky I am to have the family I was blessed with because I have no doubt that I couldn’t have pulled this off without them! Carrying heavy objects with a prosthesis creates a really weird, unstable feeling. Your knee buckles based on the amount of weight that is put on your toe. When you are carrying something that weighs you down, you feel like your knee is always breaking at the wrong time and you are going to fall because your weight distribution is off. The technology in these legs is incredible, but this is one instance where it really comes back to bite you! I think I only fell once, but once is enough!
I’ll put up more updates in my next post, but for now, I just wanted to get everything up to date. New city. New job. Still living the best way I know how.
