Oh, I am so mean!!
I am not going to issue the rest of your quilt today.
Well, I might if you all think you can stand two posts in one day...
but I've got to make some changes to it.
The wonderful Sharon from Vrooman's Quilts got to peek at it early.
I had her proof read it and she found a couple of typos
but I cannot fix them until later today.
I fully intended to keep up while at the campground,
but their internet was down.
I got lots of unplugged time!
As for how our little trip went...
the good, fun part we will let Stephen tell you.
We did have a nice time.
It rained all day one day, but the rest of the trip was beautiful.
We always stay at the same campground;
it has an indoor pool, a playground, a restaurant,
and this weekend the fiddler convention,
so we got to listen to free music the whole time.
I got over my cold fairly quickly;
so that was a huge blessing!
I did have a bit of discomfort at night,
but that's because I didn't have my poor over-used recliner with me.
My stupid shoulder just gets fussy about that.
Now for the bad news.
I am not sure how it happened,
but I completely messed up my knee.
I didn't do alot of walking;
like I said we had a relaxing time.
But one evening I sat down to watch Stephen play at the playground,
and it started hurting.
Within a half hour I couldn't extend it.
By the next day I couldn't put weight on my leg,
you should see me trying to walk!
So, for now, I am grounded to the couch/recliner.
(or I'll be sitting on the floor with Stephen alot today.)
When something crazy happens to me,
I always try to find the blessing...
and I have found several!
1) Hubby did the laundry last night as I cannot go up and down the stairs.
I don't think I've ever seen him do laundry. What a blessing!
2) I get to be queen of the couch. May for Me!
3) It is my left leg. Which matches my left arm that doesn't work correctly. (and I can still work the sewing machine peddle!)
4) I've been puzzling over a couple of things having to do with my quilting.
I had found a brick and mortar shop that rents booths,
and they were supposed to have a booth ready for me in May.
I went in the shop and the lady had forgotten. That's fine, I'll forgive her for that.
But, she is very dis-interested. Her store is very primitive...and my products are not.
She almost was talking me out of it. Well, I am thus talked out of it. :)
Thanks to my leg I have just too much on my plate to try to worry about this!
And finally, I have to do some re-organization of my charity quilt program.
As it is, I am being taken advantage of...so this is the perfect opportunity to shut it down,
and re-think the whole thing...when I can walk again.
What a blessing to be given the 'excuse' to be able to do this.
5) I have to rely on God for my healing.
I am sure that some of you will call me strange for this.
(It costs $400/month for the spouse on my husbands plan.
The boys cost $50 each so they are covered.
As for me...I'd rather stay at home with my kids,
than have insurance.)
Now, of course, if it gets worse,
or doesn't get better by me babying it,
then I will figure a way to somehow go to the doctor.
In the meantime,
I am going to enjoy being LAZY!!!!
