My First Post

Let me introduce myself. I am Srahmom or Alfiemom or Mommy. I had knee replacement surgery in September and am preparing to go back to work next week after being off for almost three months. Currently, my life is spent walking and riding our stationary bicycle.

Walking in the Mall
In late October my therapist told me that I could finally start walking in the Mall. I was very excited since it meant that I could go somewhere else other than the physical therapy clinic and the doctor's office. Walking was slow, I had to use my cane and was passed by little old ladies using their walkers. I frequently had to stop to rest my throbbing knee. It was hard work and the change in scenery wasn't even noticed.

Things are starting to look up
I've continued to do all my exercises and I'm a lot more confident walking. I no longer have to stare at the floor to avoid all the cracks that pop up so I can trip over them. I actually look around while I walk. It's a good thing too. It is the Christmas season and there are people out there who are not looking around for me. The mall is very crowded. People walk out of the stores without looking where they are going, so I have to stop dead in my tracks to avoid running in to them. They swing their bags from side to side and to and fro, frequently hitting me in the knee. Let's not do that anymore! In fact I would like you all to go home when I go to the mall to walk or perhaps you could just stay out of my way.

Commercial Advertizement
Since I have been walking I have noticed a new shop at Briarwood. It is called Chez Pierre a Genuine Taste of France. I went in a few weeks ago to see what they carry. It is a lovely shop filled with wonderful French items such as (my favorite) chocolate, mustards, peppers, wine, olive oil, linens, porcelins, etc. All are very reasonably priced. And the proprietor is French. I hope you will stop in at Chez Pierre, located in the same aisle as Jonathan B. Pub and the Village Theatre.

Have you thought about getting all superheroic and patrolling the mall from crime, since you're walking around anyway?
