Take ir as a golf lesson. Perhaps you have too much motion in your swing,and the hip may be helping restrict thar.

Holding my breath, as my parents house of 34 years goes on the market tomorrow. It is impeccable (Dad's a little anal ) and probably won't last through the weekend. So many memories there, but they need to get into a place that will be more manageable. The current place has a good sized yard with a lot of landscaping Dad's done over these 3 decades and it has become a lot to maintain for a man in his 70's. It's a great location and with them only living 5 miles from us, I drive through their neighborhood on my way home from work every day. Sadly, they'll be about 12 miles away in their new place when its built, but halfway between me and one of my sisters. And that sister's office is less than two miles away, so all will be well if they need a kid to swing by. I was an Army brat and we moved around a fair amount in my younger years, but we were lucky to be in the DC area (and in that house) for 8 years before my Dad retired from Service. I was in college at that time, so this is the closest thing I have to the 'house I grew up in'. I was really hoping my youngest sister would somehow buy it and move back to the area - they are in nearby Baltimore suburbs now - but that wasn't in the cards.

It appears it is a sellers market. From what I've been seeing there is a lower then normal inventory in NOVA.
