Good morning. Sorry for not being here yesterday, but I had a morning appointment with my orthopedic doctor and did a couple errands on the way home. By the time I was able to sit down and type it was already mid afternoon and my arm was aching.
My right shoulder has been rather painful for the past few weeks, and I needed to find out why. According to my doctor, along with arthritis, I have Bursitis, tendonitis and impingement syndrome in my shoulder. Impingement syndrome occurs when the rotator cuff tendons rub against the roof of the shoulder joint. Well goodie goodie for me!
It seems that all the repetitive use (crocheting, etc) has not been kind to my shoulder. I ended up getting a cortisone shot in my shoulder. OUCH!! I am such a baby when it comes to needles! If the pain doesn't go away, I have another appointment in three weeks. I need to take more breaks while I'm crocheting, and do more arm exercises every so often during the day.
Well, my bad! It was Kevin's birthday a couple days ago, and it slipped right by me. I am getting so bad at remembering birthdays and anniversaries. Kevin, I hope your special day was awesome. Happy Birthday sweetie. I love you. Here's a birthday layout that Deanne made for Kevin.
Monday afternoon, around 2:30, Pogo went to sit in front of the door to watch for Joe to come home from work. Joe usually comes in sometime between 3:10 and 3:30.
Well, Joe didn't come home. Instead, he texted me to say that he would be quite late. But Pogo did not understand this when I explained it to him. So three hours later, he is still sitting by the door, waiting for Joe.
It was getting late, so I cooked Pogo a hamburger so that he wouldn't be so hungry. Eventually, close to 8 p.m., Joe finally got home. And of course, Pogo ran right out into the house to bark at Joe and get his turkey treat.
That night, I finished the afghan. My goodness, it is really quite pretty.
Yesterday, while I was out, the box of new yarn came. The carrier did not leave it though, so I called the Post Office and requested a re-delivery for today. It arrived a little while ago. Last night, though, I started a new little dolly dress. This one with the Flamingo yarn. Goodness, such a pretty color!
Now that the yarn is here, I hope to be able to finish up my list of projects in the next couple of months. I'll need to run out today for a bit because I forgot to put the bills out in the mail this morning. Joe is home and he may go out later, so maybe he can drop these off at the post office for me.
I want to thank everyone for the responses about the pets and other animals being saved in Texas. It hurts me to see these animals scared and suffering. I feel much better knowing that a lot of folks and agencies are collecting all the animals and getting them to safety.
Well, now that I've chewed your ear a bit, I think I'll make a fresh cup of coffee and Pogo and I will sit out on the porch for a while. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
