This week, Cheryl and I chat about the gallery opening and her first evening in heels in almost 2 years. We also chat about her getting back into the kitchen and Cheryl’s desire to get back into the job market.
Of course, what seems to be a weekly segment at this point, we chat about Cheryl’s fight with her archenemy: Stairs.

That is so cool that Ally’s art pieces were in the front window of the gallery and people were so excited to take pictures of them — and she even sold some!
I can imagine how Cheryl got emotional over the whole thing (anyone would). (That’s great she thought to bring flowers and everything.)
And that’s great that Cheryl got to wear a dress and heel shoes for the first time in a long time! And (as I understand it) (having never done so) wearing heels is an even better workout that you’d think because the heels shifts your posture/stance, causing other muscles (in your legs and back) to come into play in order to keep your balance. (So it’s no wonder Cheryl was tuckered out by the time she got home.)
On the domestic front, that’s also great news that Cheryl is getting more active in the kitchen, and can remember the precise details for the special sauce and such.
I also find it heartwarming (and often funny) how her little comments (such as “But I like drinking too”) make it clear that Cheryl’s personality is back.
I agree with Manny that she should focus on volunteer work, helping others that have been through similar medical traumas, rather than worry about financial matters. (Given the many defects of how our society is currently set up, I think in general in this world people who do volunteer work often contribute more to society than many paying jobs.)
That’s great about the stair update! Conquered! And I’m glad Cheryl was able to convey how annoying it is when Manny turns to talk to Ally and she can’t see his lips (and thus feels excluded), so Manny can going forward shift position to make sure that doesn’t happen.
That “alarm sound at night” effect after hearing the smoke alarm does sound very annoying (to say the least). I hope it continues to go away with time. I’m very interested to hear what the special “brain-eye” doctor says. (As Cheryl says, providing us medical fascination is what she’s here for!)
“Pizza out!” (I just made that up.)
