I did it again

Once again I have neglected my little blog... I have been working in the sewing/craft room, cleaning, organizing and just plain getting rid of things... I have refinished one dresser and found a second dresser at a yard sale really cheap. Now all my fabrics are in those two dressers with the cutting table in between

What did I do with all the things I cleared out of that room you ask... why I had a yard sale... yes I broke down and cleaned the garage, prepared tables, signs and priced hundreds of items... opened for business yesterday and did quite well.  I was so sore and tired last night from all the moving of boxes, my arms hurt, my back hurt and my feet hurt... all I wanted to do was get something to eat and take a nice bath and relax.. then I thought I might do some cross stitching... But as usual things just didn't work out that way... I did get some leftovers out of the fridge and put in the Microwave and I thought while I was waiting I would do the dishes that were soaking in the sink... then it happened... POP   OW WWW   OH  NO  grab a towel... yes I broke something, but it was in my hand when it broke, it was a glass.... OK remember medical training, grab clean towel and put pressure on it and go sit down... did that and it didn't stop, so the call was made to hubby at work, he came home and to the ER we went... came home two hours later with 9 stitches in my hand and me starting to feel a little goofy from the pain killer they gave me... It knocked my out last night, but hubby said I moaned and groaned all night and even popped him a few times...sorry...  this morning up early again and day two of the sale... its  now over, hand still hurts, so taking another pain pill and I just know it will again knock me out...
So I am not allowed to do dishes for awhile, doc don't want the hand getting wet.... can't stitch... so I will just sit and watch tv... YOU should see me sitting here typing   really cute, lucky there isn't a million mistakes...OH right, hit spell check and they will fix it... So I promise one day the blog will again be attended to, I just don't know when...

OH and can you believe that I of all people haven't entered any  blog contests in a long time... I am really slipping here...

I hope your hand is recovering and am happy for you that your yard sale was a success. Hope you will be able to get to your cross stitch soon.

I heard about your hand and have not had a chance to respond. We had garage sales in our development but I don't participate (it is too much work). I heard about your hand and all you were thinking about was doing more stitching. SLOW DOWN, you are overdoing it.
