Took a Break

Even though it was completely unintentional, I did take a break. I have been resting my foot which seems so much better without the help of the doctor. My MRI showed nothing wrong, but go to therapy and take pills was his answer. I wanted to know if doing these things would make it worse since I didn't know how I hurt it to begin with. He couldn't answer me. So I have been soaking it and doing mini stretches and it seems to be doing better.

I have been sewing up a storm. I have 4 aprons and 5 bags ready to picture and post on etsy. I am nervous about it. But I can't make a million dollars being afraid can I. My model will be here tomorrow ( I hope he is willing ;o) ). I have a ton more material to cut and sew up. Just haven't had the time.

Since I have been resting I have been watching the Olympics. I love the Olympics!!!! Here is my favorite clip of the 2010 games!
Meryl Davis and Charlie White

I had a bittersweet moment last night! Team USA won against Team Canada in Hockey. I was so happy that The US won but at the same time I was really sad that Canada lost! Being that I am a half breed it is hard for me to pick one side over the other.

We got a lot of snow last night. Ours was the only school district that didn't cancel school. But the roads were bad so I kept the monsters home. They are watching some show with Grim. And his truck isn't running well so he will take my car to work tonight. So I can't work Bingo.... big loss, NOT! I really didn't want to work it. I am counting down the days. 5 more fish fries, bingo until June 21st, my presidency until June 20, School out June 18th! Then I can concentrate on the yard.

We went to look at wood burners last week. I almost put the money down to order one. But good thing I didn't. One of the basement walls is caving in. Sooooooo, that will have to be replaced before I can see spending $3k for a wood burner. That doesn't mean that I won't get one before next winter. I just won't have one before this winter is over. Man, I hate when I have plans to do something and the fates think I need to do something else! But it is what it is!

Last night I cooked up a chicken for the broth, 6 yams were cooked and then pulled out of the skin and put into dinner sized bags. I blended the carrots, onions and celery to make for a little thicker broth. I am going to use some to make a baked potato soup. The rest might get canned or I might just freeze the rest for broccoli and cheese soup next week.

Off to figure out what to make for dinner!
