  • She won’t be able to for quite some time because she just got a knee replacement! When I drove over to the town where my mother lives (for other reasons) I came by to pick up something for my daughter and my mom met me outside and told me her housemate was in so much pain that she hadn’t slept all night and had finally fallen asleep. This was around 3 pm. I feel bad for the lady and I’m now wondering if she’s going to go through with the hip replacement if the knee replacement has been this hard on her. She’s in her 70s and her mother is still alive in her 90s, so hopefully she’s got a lot of years to go. I hope it all helps.

    Crazy part: She lives upstairs and my mom lives downstairs. They agreed to not change bedrooms. The housemate is planning on getting up and down the stairs sitting down.

  • The best Mexican restaurant in town here is in a strip mall and we used to have a great Turkish restaurant in a strip mall. There also used to be a Chinese restaurant here in a strip mall that offered cool and unusual stuff like jellyfish as an appetizer (it’s kind of crunchy).

    I’m just not sure what strip malls have to do with anything. You can make the atmosphere inside nice. If you’re super worried about people not enjoying the outside view, you can put curtains in front of the windows.
