Posting on a Tuesday!....

.....which is unusual for me.

Just came from watching the girl's lacrosse game- they lost in overtime. :(
Now I'm waiting for DH to get home from the doctor- his turn for a change, lol!

The doctor yesterday was a bit non-committal about the latest upsurge in pain. I need to be more careful about how much time I spend out of the wheelchair or off the crutches and I definitely need to be fitted for a new, different brace. I'll be seeing the doctor and the brace rep at the same time so they can work it out together with me (and my leg!) in the same room as both of them at the same time. Hopefully, this will solve some of the severe pain problems.

Not much sleep last night- had to go back to the big block of cheese for the leg which reduces the pain but make it really tough to sleep. I did have a pretty good day in school and got my progress reports all turned in well ahead of schedule, so that's done! The kids at school are just really great- I like them so much.

I'm looking forward to the weekend. I'm going with a few friends to do some crafting at my brother's shore house. I'm looking forward to sitting on the deck in the sunshine, making cards, playing with watercolors, and just relaxing. Can't wait for the weekend!
This is a card I made for the recycle challenge last weekend. The flowers are made from a DVD mailer from Disney World- if you look closely at the large flower you can see Cinderella Castle. The large flower was made using the Punch Magic Fold-swirl 6 petal flower punch. I LOVE these punches- you can turn any piece of patterned paper or cardstock into great 3-D flowers. The little flowers were made with a Creative Memories punch- the Friendship micro maker which does these little flowers and the really cute little hearts that are on the previous recycled card I posted.
I expect I'm going to be confused tonight. FOX TV has moved House from Tuesday night to Monday night. I don't watch a whole lot of TV- or at least I am not committed to that many shows. But House is one that I watch pretty faithfully- and it has ALWAYS been on on Tuesdays. It felt wrong to be watching last night and now there will be nothing for me to watch tonight. Silly, huh?
OK- leg just started screaming again and DH will be home soon, so time for the me to prop the leg up until dinner.

I hope you get relief SOON-the big block of cheese...great (appropriate) visual!

That flower is fantastic! I have to take a good long look at all the stuff I just shuffle to the recycling pile-a Disneycycled card for DH would be *perfect*! TFS
