Déjà vu


My University is sending me to Sault St. Marie
to teach this weekend.  

Last August when we took a family vacation to
Mackinac Island
and the Upper Peninsula,
I had this exact same walking cast.

This is feeling a bit Déjà vu.
 I promised my surgeon, no big hiking adventures
when I'm done with my classroom obligations.

I'm really going to behave, this time.
Pinky swear I won't be climbing
any sand dunes or waterfalls, Mom.
P.S. Happy Mothers Day weekend, ladies!

Have a fun time and behave yourself when you're up there! You don't need a swollen foot when you get back.

OK-but if your husband and kids are going, he can bike you around Mackinac Island on a tandem. That way you won't be doing anything against your doctor's wishes. :))))
