Well I have to admit that because I thought I'd be having surgery yesterday I'd been on a huge tangent the last couple of weeks tackling big projects that I had procrastinated on for a while. Not that I was "getting my life in order", at least I was trying not to think of it that way. I told myself these would be things that would bug me while I was sequestered in bed for a few days. Sooooo, these are the days I was supposed to be recuperating and so I've been a little at loose ends. This is a picture of the "big event" of today. I put together this little cutie. I found the antique cup and saucer at Emporium Antiques last week (paying rent in person is very expensive). I had to have it and it was even under "had to have" reason. Then thinking where he'd like best to live in this well-edited (ha!) home, I decided on the window sill of the kitchen where there's a lot of green. That's where one of Hope's (Paper Relics) cards had been residing. It was love at first sight and they moved in together. Tomorrow the guys are all going fishing ALL DAY LONG and possibly the night so I am planning a full day in my work room match-making other pieces who will travel with me to Silver Bella for vendor night. I have to have a big, uninterrupted span of time before I like to work and, since school let out, I haven't had much of that kind of time with swimming lessons, etc. So I CAN'T WAIT. I've been a little antsy awaiting this creative time. Oh boy!

Well, I was supposed to have my surgery yesterday. I was so prepared for it, had my big girl panties on for two weeks (pee-ewe), but a problem reared it's ugly head at the very last minute and that problem is something that showed up on an echogram I had 18 months ago. I have a little valve issue that I've know about for 25 years but since it was in my records from the echo and I hadn't done any follow-up tests they wouldn't do the surgery. They all ran in the other direction which usually on my copy of the script. So I get to worry a little about the heart thing and then, if all goes well, I still get to have yesterday's surgery which I would have already had done by this time today. Can you tell I'm still feeling sorry for myself? You shoulda heard how many mothers I offended when they said the final no! Growing older is not for sissies, as they say. I'll be positive here and say I love almost everything else about being almost 50, truly I feel like my best self yet, but there are a few more nodules and such that go with it. Still I am so blessed and I pray that you are too.
