In my last post I said I was taking a little blog break and I’m still on break….but I wanted to check in and say “hello”. This has been a hectic summer for me. I’ve had quite a few health issues which started back in February. It began with a Bakers cyst behind my left knee and I ended up with a severely torn meniscus. I had surgery on June 10th and physical therapy after that. During the time of my PT I developed a problem with my right foot which the doctor first thought was a stress fracture but apparently that’s not the case. Right now we don’t know what the problem is. In addition to that (!) I have “frozen shoulder”. Good grief! Now I’m going to PT for that and will go back to the doctor on Sept. 10th and maybe he’ll give me a shot. I just don’t know what else can go wrong with me, hopefully nothing. Do I dare mention that I have a bladder infection right now?
I also mentioned that I discovered that the government stopped depositing my mom’s civil service retirement check. Suffice it to say it took 2 weeks for me to get that straightened out….many days before I could reach someone on the phone then on hold for 30 minutes….thankfully I got it straight and her monies are now back in her account. When you’re on a fixed income like she is and you miss out on part of your income each month, it gets dicey real quick!
Lastly, yesterday I got word that a friend of mine has passed away suddenly while vacationing in the Bahamas. I just got a text that she had an aneurysm and was flown back to the States where she was declared brain dead. I blogged about her house a few years ago here. Everyone is in shock….she was only 62 years old!
The only good news I can report is that I ordered the yearling calf head from Décor Steals and it arrived yesterday. I have a gorgeous old frame I’m thinking about using on a kitchen wall and putting the yearling head in the middle with my boxwood wreath and surrounding the frame with white plates. I also want to paint the wall with chalkboard paint so the plates and yearling head show up but with my shoulder situation I can’t paint right now. Oh well….at least I got my yearling head which I’ve been stalking for some time now.
It seems like everyone has got Fall decorating on the brain. I’m not quite there but I am ready for some cooler temps and FOOTBALL! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
