Long time, no see, Blogfriends!
As many of you may be aware, I've been nursing a pesky rotator cuff injury in my right shoulder that involves some calcium deposits that are refusing to reabsorb. After 5 months of physical therapy, a few X-rays, an MRI, and 3 procedures involving cortisone shots and a nasty lavage and aspiration, I'm finally going to see a surgeon next week.
I haven't been able to do much during that time because I am in constant pain. I mean, it's still difficult to chop vegetables and stir them in a pot. And my beloved gardening? Right out. Exercise? Fogeddaboudit. And not that I mind not being able to vacuum, but I'd give just about anything right now to suck the ever-living dirt right out of our many and varied, and somewhat neglected, carpets. (No offense to my trooper of a husband, Mark. He's picked up the slack on just about everything around here, not the least of which is our very large yard that is bull dozing its way into summer!)
And of course, computer time has had to be kept to a minimum. It's seriously all I can do to get my posting done for the Moxie Fab World. You know, my day job.
On a lighter note, I do have some fun news. I got an email a couple of weeks ago from Jane at The Mindful Word asking if she could reprint some of my articles. Here's the first. Maybe you remember that rant from August 2009? Well, funny thing is, it's still true today no matter what grocery store I'm in, even if it's 2,500 miles from where the rant began.
Thanks for hanging in there with me. I'll let you know what the surgeon says on Tuesday of next week.
