Thwarted... by my spine.
What was the title of my last post? “I’m Back!”?
Yeah... it should’ve read “Oh, my back!!” I’ve been KO’d by a back problem that hit me the day before the Lilac Tea, which I was unable to attend because I decided spending the afternoon in the ER at the hospital would be soooo much more fun... not.
I’m still not functioning properly but I’ve gotten a lot better since it hit me. The physiotherapist says I’m a “fast-healer” which is good (at least that’s what I’m assuming) and figures it’ll be another 2 weeks before I can walk and sit with little difficulty. So please, until then refrain from inviting me to go swing-dancing... ‘cause it ain’t happening.
On the plus side it hasn’t hindered me from working on art and I’ve gotten a few projects out of the way and some more ACEO’s done so it turns out there is a silver lining, albeit a small one, to being gimped up for the past 3 ½ weeks.
Also, much to my amusement I’m pretty sure the cats think I’m one of them now. I came to this conclusion as I had adopted the lifestyle of spending most of the day lying around only to get up to get something to eat, go to the bathroom and bathe. I also came to this conclusion because of their incessant meowing at me in an attempt to communicate their displeasure at me taking up their sleeping space. That’s changed now, of course, since I’m much more mobile than I was even just a few days ago.
Although it’ll be awhile longer before I resume regular posting you can rest assured, dear reader, that regular posting will indeed return eventually.... think of all the art and gardening I have to catch up on. So if you’ve e-mailed me recently and I still haven’t gotten back to you this post is also to let you know that you’ll be hearing (or is it reading??) from me later this week since I can now sit long enough to work on the computer a bit.
Last but certainly not least, I wanted to give my sincere thanks to those who’ve called, e-mailed and stopped by to wish me well and for a fast recovery because it seems like all the good thoughts are working! Keep ‘em coming... if you wouldn’t mind! ;)
