Modcloth Inspired Interpretation Dress
Labor Day weekend last year I broke my wrist in two places and had to have surgery. I was using a chair to climb up to clean out a cobweb in the corner above my fireplace. When I stepped back down onto the chair I missed it completely. I tried to catch myself with my left hand which, believe you me, was NOT a good idea! Needless to say, since that time I have purchased a step stool.
The surgeon placed what I considered to be a huge pin through my wrist to hold the bones together and in place for 6 weeks. Followed by 6 weeks of physical therapy. OMG how painful was all that! Even after well over a year it still hurts some everyday and occasionally I still have some swelling. Doing my job one-handed and having my hubby dress me was certainly something I had never experienced and not my cup of tea but you gotta do what you gotta do. A week beforehand I had just purchased a new car with a stick shift so I had to have someone drive me around for awhile. It was really all quite stressful. I eventually just stopped doing everything all together that I didn't have to and let myself heal. No crocheting, no blogging, no photo editing or taking photos for that matter and no housework (now that one I didn't complain about). I have a deep sympathy for Captain Hook now folks, the struggle is real!
On another note, I love my new job! I work with some wonderful people and can almost set my own hours. I could use a bit more of a challenge but then again at my age I am enjoying the ease of the job.
I have gone to some great concerts that I hope to showcase soon. Paul McCartney a few weeks ago for my birthday, Lady Gaga before that, Joe Bonamassa and Lynyrd Skynyrd this year alone. I got a new camera for my birthday so great pics to come. I have missed the blogging community and I look forward to new technology making it easier for me to post so that I may do it more often. I still have that slow internet after all!
