I’ve been away and I’m sorry. Trying to do it half way was impossible. I rest my arm while the kiddos nap, but then any progress I make gets undone once they get up. I naively thought for a while that being on the computer wasn’t doing any damage, but it is. Seems my entire radial nerve has been impacted and well, fingers typing away kinda play a large roll in irritating it.
But I missed you all so decided to write a quick hello.
I am getting better. The week has been a slow one filled with snuggles on the couch, Disney movies, quiet play and slow walks when the weather has permitted it. I have been able to knit a bit. Funny enough, reminding myself to NOT tense my fingers around the needles has been a great tension reliever in my wrist and forearm, but I can’t do it for long.
I’ve been making lists (which I never do) because of being so late in my projects. It’s a bit overwhelming, but I’m trying to not let it get to me. One thing I will try out this week-end is to teach my husband how to cut fabric for my quilting. The irony of the situation is that sewing doesn’t hurt, but cutting does… but if I can’t cut my fabric, I can’t sew! The list that has me the most worried is of course my Christmas presents list. This is the first year that we are making all our presents. That being said, if I don’t start soon, Christmas will come and go. This has been another great motivator for staying quiet and spending the least amount of time on the computer as possible.
So here it is, a short little progress report. I’ll be back this week-end with a post (graciously typed by my wonder-hubby) that I’m excited about : I’ve been invited by Kim from Mothering with mindfulness to participate in a Q&A blog hop and I can’t wait to chime in… just need a few projects actually started if I want to have any kind of pictures to show you. LOL!
Wishing you all a wonderful day and a wonderful week-end. For all my fellow Canadians, happy Thanksgiving week-end. May your lives be filled with gratitude.
