    Sorry you have been in pain also Mary, It's no fun! I kept thinking mine problems had been getting better, only for it to get worse for awhile. I caved and went to urgent care and they did absolutely nothing for me, not even a diagnosis. She just told me that I really need to find a primary dr. Gee thanks! Luckily my aunt suggested her Dr, so I called their office and was able to get in within 4 days (usually you wait for months around here if you are a new patient). Anyways he gave me some pills to help and sent me for x-rays. He wanted to see if the pills help me at all and if it corrects the problem then I should get better, if not then he mentioned an MRI and physical therapy. He was thinking carpal tunnel in my wrist and possibly a mild rotator cuff injury (how in the world that could be I don't know). But thankfully, the pain is getting better this time, I can actually sleep at night and my range of motion is getting better, today will be day 3 that I haven't had to take Motrin or use Ben gay or Biofreeze to get through my day. Fingers crossed it keeps improving and stays that way, the pain has been ridiculous and I just want to get back to my normal self.

    Thanks for sharing the pattern, printing this one out.
  5. Good Morning

    Good afternoon! Same as usual here, cleaning, cleaning, laundry, cleaning. Ha! Hopefully sometime after ALL that fun I can sit and work on some crochet! Thankfully my arm and hand are starting to feel better so that is a plus! Still not 100% but much better than it has been!

  7. Great idea Mary. I'll start a list also and get working on some stuff.
  8. Good Morning!

    Morning everyone! Starting my day downing some coffee, hoping that it will give me a push. Gloomy, rainy weather outside so it's a good day to stay indoors! I'm still working on the baby blanket I started, but I am not loving it so it's taking me longer to get it done. I am still thinking about frogging it and starting over again with a different stitch. Does this happen to anyone else? I feel the more I love the stitch or the look of what I am working on I want to get it done, and if I don't it's harder to want to pick it up.

    Those are so beautiful Cheryl!
  10. Quiet around here...

    That is awesome that your daughter got the job! My great aunt passed away from brain cancer, so I had her service to attend yesterday. They did a really nice job, just so sad to see your family getting older, or getting sick and passing away. It really reminds you to live your own life to the fullest and love those around you. I started a blanket the other night, with this carpel tunnel business, I can only do it for small periods of time. I have been debating on going to see a Dr. but I have no idea what they will even do. I have no interest in pain pills so I have just been dealing with it. Mornings are the worst for some reason, as the day goes on I get a little more movement in my hand without the pain.
  11. ♡Good Morning

    Yesterday was good, spent the day hanging out with Ryan and Madi. I got an essential oil diffuser which I am pretty excited about and also some flowers for outdoors. We did a small cookout and later went for ice cream and ate it by the lake. So happy the weather is finally warming up again. Supposed to be in the 80's for the rest of the week!
  12. Good Sunday Morning

    Definitely need to take time for yourself. I too would feel guilty about it at first, but not anymore. We gotta take care of ourselves. I'm still not working on anything. I am having a carpal tunnel episode in both hands (I blame painting those rocks) I was fine until then. Now I am spending most of my day and while I sleep in braces. I'm getting desperate but I'm sure it won't be easy to crochet while wearing the braces.

    Love the booties Mary, they are adorable! As far as items, if everyone wants to pick a team to be on that is fine, or you can make both colors, totally up to you.
  14. Another day..good morning all

    The sun is finally out today, but it's not very warm. I know it's still early but I miss those 70's we had for awhile.
