It's almost time...

My foot surgery is scheduled for Friday
(the start of spring break for Chris & the girls).

2 weeks of limited mobility and at least 6 weeks of crutches.
(now I'm wishing I would have done more upper body training).

I'm not good at sitting still.
(my husband can't wait).

My family has promised to wait on me.
(cutting back at work and household duties sounds kinda fun).

I'll be going through serious crafting/thrifting withdrawal
(but I'll have lots of time to catch up your blogs)

I'll promise to post an update in a few days.

Can you tell I'm pretending to be brave? Eek!

I am ever so happy to send you a list of websites to shop at. I hate to get out into crowds. Shopping from the computer is great if you can wait for your product and I can if it is vintage...smiles...Renee

Big big hug of you can do this and I am thinking of you...

Good luck! Maybe you'll find some more sedentary interests you didn't know you had! If it were me, I know my Paypal account would suffer from all the Ebay and Etsy browsing...!

Good luck my dear!! You'll be up and at it again in no time. But for the time being, enjoy getting waited on :)

Hi Kim!

So, what you're telling us is that you're suffering from "The agony of de feet"?! heehee!

God Bless you on your surgery. Yes, you might go through some crafting withdrawal, but the good thing is once you're back - you'll be bursting with energy!!

Pam said...

Good luck on your surgery. Your quiet time will go fast and you'll have tons of projects all lined up for when you can get up and about!

Oh- I don't envy you- I know what you will be going through. Just keep a positive attitude and stay on top of the pain in the beginning...that's the biggie. Enjoy being waited on. xo Diana

Good luck with your surgery, I had a bunionectomy on both feet a few years ago and it wasn't exactly pleasant but it was the best thing I could have done. Try to relax and let them give you a little TLC, you definately deserve it.

Barbara said...

Good luck, Kim!

I am sending hugs and good thoughts your way. I know you'll do great. The worst part is the waiting...of course, afterwards you'll be so glad that it's over! Make sure you let us know how you're doing. Hope you have a speedy recovery!
