      Wow, I missed the surgery; but I see that you are working out again. Does that mean rehab / recovery is going well? If I recall correctly, rotatory cuff physical therapy workouts are some of the toughest.

      Well, I have been completely out of the loop. Didn't know about the shoulder surgery. Isn't it crazy how much of our everyday routines we take completely for granted until we can't do them or do them the way we used to. Are you going back to work this next week? Was the shoulder surgery planned out in advance or something that came up? Hoping your recovery continues as smoothly and pain-free as possible.

      I have a dress, but am not sure if it is the one I will wear to the wedding. The bride's mom works in an office doing something with taxes and she told me the other day she won't be able to shop for her dress until April 17th or after. Emma is having a small wedding. She's only having her sister as her maid of honor; no other attendants. Her sister is a freshman in high school and they don't have her dress either and won't shop for it until after April 17th. I'm going to wait until they get...

      ...their dresses and then see if mine looks okay and doesn't class with anything. I love the dress I got and it was only $40 off of a clearance rack at Dillards. I hope it will work because I have a hard enough time finding a style that looks decent on me let alone in a specific color.
