Now You See Her, Now You Don't

So...Hello. Howahya? It's been awhile - again. I disappeared from the blogoshpere as per usual. Am wedging in a bit of screen time here to say hello and I've missed you all.

It's been one crazy, hectic summer around the old homestead here. New jobs. New home. New life. New aches and pains. No knitting. No creating of any kind for several weeks now. Not even enough time or ability to sneak a peek here and there at your lovley blogs. So I'm completely out of the loop!

The big things on the list here are the major life changes...and the being put on the injured list. Seems I've developed a whopping case of carpal tunnel in both hands and BROTHER has it been a pain! It literally came out of the blue and knocked me backwards. Looking back now I can see where I've been having some problems for several months. But I chalked it up to the usual arthritic pain and stiffness and kept about my daily business.

Now am in splints on both hands full time indefinitely. Typing, knitting, crafting of pretty much any kind, even just the usual mundane daily tasks are off the list indefinitely. I'm cheating somewhat today to sneak in a short bit of blogging and catching up on email and what not. But it ain't easy!!!...and I can see where it's going to be a long time coming getting back to normal stuff. Surgery may be on the horizon.

Anyway, lots of missing all of you. Lots of missing writing. Lots of missing pretty much everything. Am hoping am allowed sooner than later to at least be able to surf the internets and keep up with all of you of course. A few more visits to the doc's office and we'll see.

I hope you all are having a fabulous summer and are now looking forward to the fall season with your creativities. I sincerely hope to see you soon ;0)

Have a knit pickin' good summer and fall ya'll !

  1. Oh, no... so sorry to hear about your hands, Kathleen! And that it ultimately may me surgery. I feel your pain though, literally... as I have recurring bouts of tendonitis in my hands, wrists & elbows--basically clocking in too much time on the computer and my crafting & jewelry business are not helping... LOL! I close my business this weekend though, so hopefully that will ease things a bit... Now if I could just be more pc-fre... ;o) I use Handeze fingerless therapy gloves while working & at the compture. These might help you too, Kathleen. Here's a link: Do be taking good care there... Be in touch when you can. Wishing you all the best for a good recovery. ((HUGS))
