    It's the little things, ya know? I was literally dancing around and singing. I've missed my tights so much! It's been years since I've been able to get them on. I figured someone here would understand, since evidently, the rest of the world doesn't seem to find it that big of a deal....

    Congrats!!!
    Absolutely something to celebrate. I felt the same way when I effortlessly tied my sneakers, then went on to pantyhose w/o contortions. Today I am wearing boots that I can zipper on and off with no problem.

    Also, I find that I can now wear flat shoes w/o pain. Before I needed the small heel. I have worn shoes that were on my shelf for years.

    Great isn't it? Put my new hiking boots on yesterday in hopes of using them but it was rainy and sleety.

    Though I have just turned 56, I feel 10 years younger since my hip replacement end of August. All so good.
