THAT "SHOOTING STAR" MYTH....

You know the one I'm talking about. If you can think fast enough when you see a "shooting star" and you make a wish on it, it will come true. As long as I can remember, when I have seen one, I have quickly wished for "good health". My theory is that if I have that, all other things I need or want will fall in line sooner or later. My friends, remember when you found out Santa Clause wasn't real? Well, here is another pivotal moment; that "shooting star" thing is a myth. Yeah, I know. True. Deal with it. You want proof? Sure. I have proof. About eight weeks ago I was raking the gravel driveway (don't ask) and I pinched a nerve in my left shoulder. It hurts, every day and every night. I continue to sew and paint and do all the things I love to do, but am starting to get cranky. WebMD tells me to take ibuprofen, sit around all day with moist heat on it and keep my left arm immobile. Like that's going to happen! So there is your proof. This has been a Public Service Announcement. We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

Silly girl...give your poor body a rest for one day! Hot pack and then cold is a good way to go. If you do this for one day hopefully it will speed your recovery. Have Roy give you a massage in that area to get the blood flowing. I know this will help to get better and a little time off is good. cheers ! Dee

Time off? Like, no painting of fabric? No sewing? I don't think I can do that! But, hot showers do help. Thanks for the ideas Dee..:)
