I suck!

Het everyone! So sorry for the long, very unplanned hiatus. I cut my finger doing dishes back on Dec. 4th, got a tetanus shot and had a severe allergic reaction. i had a 5x7 lump in my left arm and was struggling to create.

Two weeks later I fell down my neighbors steps and landed on my stomach on the concrete. I was covered in road rash and i bruised many ribs. I was a mess and still dealing with the lump in my arm from the shot.

Then Christmas came far too fast. I made a ton of cute stuff and forgot to photograph all of it before I gave it away.

I was raring to go the day after Christmas. I had so much I wanted to make and share. I was soooooo close. I had 10 dishes left to wash when a glass broke while my hand was in it spinning the sponge. I did some pretty bad damage to it. I have 30+ stitches inside and out. I hit a tendon and my hand is now in a splint cast until I see the surgeon on Monday. Unfortunately, I won't be stamping for quite a while. I am heartbroken. :(

I am going to try to scrapbook using nothing but my Silhouette...we'll see how it goes. I can barely feed myself as I am right handed and it's my right hand that is all bandaged up.

Typing sucks so blogging is a challenge also.

I hope you all have a safe, wonderful Happy New Year! I will be back as soon as I can!!

Dear lord, you've had a time of it lately. I'm so sorry to hear all of this. Clearly, you're not meant to do dishes. So I command you to stop from now on, forever.

You have my sincerest wishes for a HEALTHY New Year, and I hope you're back to new real soon!

Oh, Michelle! I'm so sorry that you have had such a horrible month of accidents! Here's my suggestion - at least for the dishes - USE PAPER PLATES!! :) Wishing you a speedy recovery and sending lots of hugs! Here's to a much better new year!

What a sukky December. It can only get better, right? Hey, practice getting better left-handed. My son broke his collar-bone when he was young and had is right arm in a sling. He took up the yo-yo with his left hand, and to this day can only do it left-handed. :D

When it rains, it pours and life can really and truly challenge us at times.
