I spent some time this morning looking over my last few posts, and realized that it's been a really long time since I've posted any sewing/crafty things. Well, there is a good reason for this: I've been suffering from a rotator cuff injury. When I've finished a day of just being a mommy and doing all of my mommy/keeping house duties, when the kids are in bed and it's finally MY time, my arm feels like it's hanging like a dead weight. Seriously ouchie. I've been dealing with this off and on since I had my first baby eight years ago (repetitive lifting movements, I presume). Wow, right? It was easy to ignore, because I'd have a flare up maybe twice a year at first. I'd do my little exercises and in a couple of weeks I'd be back to normal. Now, though, the flare ups seem to be occuring every month or two and lasting longer. And because I'm compensating for the hurt muscles, I now have pain going down my back and down my arm. Sigh. I don't want to live like this. So, I'm going to start physical therapy and am hoping for the best. This is my birthday month, you know. I'm starting a new decade and am not ready to enter the old lady mode of thinking. I don't want to be the person who alway complains about her physical ailments. I'm going to fight to keep my youth. Do you hear me? I'm going to fight! Go Fight Win! That's me.
Oops, sorry, got off track. Where was I? Oh, yes, the title of this post is "lame." OK, stay focused, Joanna. Lame. So, yeah, I have a lame arm so I haven't been sewing much. But I have a crafty blog, so that's a problem, right? Oh, but I have a nice camera, so I can shift the focus of my blog a little and document my life a little more. But I can't do that because, due to some recent upgrading my hubby did on our computer (bless his heart--he is awesome), I now find myself without photoshop, and I can't stinkin' find the CD. Lame again.
I just made coffee and realized I'm out of half and half. Sigh. Lame again.
I'm not running on all my pistons lately, apparently....
p.s. As of this post, I'm now turning comments back on.
