It’s A New Week With New Challenges Ahead

It’s Sunday night and I’m packing my suitcase.   Can you believe this?  Sometimes I wonder myself if I’ll ever stay a full month at home.  Unfortunately its not for a vacation.  We are heading for Colorado.

I have a couple of medical issues that I hope will be taken care of.   First,  on Tuesday I will see a specialist at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado for my foot.  Because my foot hurts worse now than it did in June, I want to make sure I get a correct diagnosis.  I am very anxious to get this done.

Then on Wednesday I am having surgery on my left hand (I’m left handed) for a couple of issues.  You may remember if you’ve been reading my blogs that I had this done on my right hand back in January.  This is going to be a little or maybe a LOT more difficult.  How will I survive not using my left hand for a couple of months?  Here are a few things that I worry about doing with only my right hand:  (not in order of importance)



Writing and typing

Applying eyeliner, makeup and fixing my hairnomakeup
Inserting contacts into my eyesdressing

cleaning the house (haha – just wanted to see if you were reading – I am not concerned         about this at all)

So for a few weeks I see this happening:

I will lose weight.
24 hr. ponytail
I will learn to dictate or else do a video blog
Wearing my ugly glasses and therefore no one can see my eyeliner anyway
sweats and more sweats


Hey this could be a Plus after all!!

Actually I am hoping when this hand is all done, I will have super powers:


Knowing that I will be one-armed for a while, I got a few more wheelbarrow loads out of the corrals and then this looked very inviting:


So I did some reading and looked at the views:

Sorry, but that was one of my views, too.


I think the cats are trying to tell me they don’t want to be barn cats for the next 5 days.

I will do my best to keep the blogs coming because my ‘guest bloggers’ have failed to show up.

Even by having these surgeries I am moving forward…… step at a time.

  1. Just wanted to wish you all the best on your surgery on your left hand. Eyeliner and makeup are so over rated…just do you. 🙂

    Rest your hands and do a video blog including the dogs!!
