How About An Update~ You Might Believe It!

I usually don't share much personal on my craft blog...but it is nice to update everyone once in awhile especially all the wonderful friends I have made through this blog.

Back in May I returned to the workforce after not working for a few years, some of you know I was taking care of my mother and brother,then worked at assisted living arrangements, and then the passing of my mother. Since then I took this extra time to take care of me and heal emotionally.

It was so exciting to get a call  and hear someone ask me to work for them. Once again, since May I am back to working for a doctor, one of my favorite things to do...that is why you don't see me around as much visiting and commenting.
Well a few days ago I slipped and turned my ankle ~ oh yes I did!
See that picture below?
That is what I looked like after 4 hrs in the emergency clinic.

Below is what my new fashion statement is looking like...so if you see strange remarks in my comments it will start to make sense.

My recovery is week by week...I am stuck on the couch with no walking on my right foot for this week (yes, that means crutches) Those are some type of torture device I am telling you!!!

So won't you stop in and leave me a comment, tell me a silly story, or just entertain me? I can't even go to my craft cave to keep myself busy...maybe slowly I will have my honey bring me some coloring supplies upstairs at least.He has been very busy working overtime and cooking and such when he gets home~ I don't want to ask for anything else.
Thanks for all the concern, great emails, and calls...I am one lucky girl when it comes to friends.
I will keep you updated.
 At least I have my constant companion by my side...

  9. I'll give you a call tomorrow, and we'll chat! You poor girl, can't believe it's happening all over again - the beautiful boot, the time away from your passion....sigh...so sorry, sweet friend! Here's an idea - maybe DH can just put in an elevator! Then you can go up and down even when in the boot and on the crutches (ugh...hate crutches!). You have a good day, and I'll be thinking about you and Pippi! Let me tell ya though, you have the prettiest toes to ever stick out of a wrap EVAH!!! Hugs and blessings :)

  17. Well I have to tell you your toe nails look a lot better than mine. LOL I need a peti so bad. Love that pink.
    Oh now the rest of your leg. I know that in not fun. Try real hard to enjoy sitting on your butt but don't get too use to it.
    I hope you aren't in too much pain and that you heal quickly.
    Hugs,

  19. Ouch! That looks painful...not sure that all the wrapping, strapping, velcro-ing wouldn't be even worse. If it's all the same to you, I think I'll pass on your fashion forward trend! I've never been much of a clothes horse anyway, I'm your original denim girl...now if that came in denim...LOL. Bummer not even being able to get to your crafty stuff. Guess you'll just have to veg out on the couch with your computer or a good book! Feel better soon,

  31. Ohhhh, Dawn, I am so sorry such a terrible thing happened to you! And I'm so sorry I wasn't around to know about this sooner to offer you some "tea and sympathy". I do hope and pray you're recovering well, if you haven't completely already.

    Again, I'm so sorry and please forgive me not getting here sooner.
