Surgery Recovery Mode

Hi all, it's been a while since I've posted. I've been going through some rough times with my ankle, fibro flares and arthitis. They come and they go....and they seem to stay longer. The doctors tell me it's stress.  It's been a week since my second ankle surgery. Doctor says I'm recovering well, but the nerves on the left side of the foot are so sensitive. It's like putting my foot in an electric socket. Hopefully, this will pass.

The good news is I've been asked to be a member of Lady Anne's Paper Crafts Design Team. I am thrilled to be on the team. Hopefully, this will open doors for me and challenge me to the fullest.Being on the design team will hopefully de-stress me by taking my mind off things I should not be thinking of and putting my energy and resources where I like to be.....in my new craft room. There are pictures of it on an earlier post....I keep re-arranging things until I am satisfied with the results. It's the way I craft. It sometimes takes me days to finish a card. Is anyone else like me? I am too much of a perfectionist and think too much. Well, let's see what I come up with on Lady Anne's Paper Crafts. The link to this website is here: Lady Anne's Paper Crafts . I hope you join and come play with us. Great challenges and prizes.

As I am writing this, please do not forget the people of Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi who are in the middle of  hurricane Issac. As you may know, today is also the 7th anniversary of hurricane Katrina...what an irony. I was born in Cuba and lived a few years in Florida. I am very familiar with hurricanes. Having said that, I have never experienced a hurricane that has lasted as long as this one....at least I can't remember. It is one the scariest moments when you hear that wind and pounding rain that lasts for hours. I can't imagine something like this lasting for days. Let's hope everyone is OK. Homes you can rebuild, lives you can't.

Until We Meet Again,

Marie
