Where does the time go?

Omg, I can't believe it 10 days until Christmas! I am so done by now, and this year, considering I am home, I still have lots to do. I can't believe how disorganized I have been with things this year. Totally unlike me!

Well, this is the first year as a single mom. I worked for a while, but set the recovery of my arms back by doing so. Also when I worked, the differentials with workers comp were coming late, therefore, all my bills got backed up, and dug myself into a hole. Now I am trying to dig myself out. I guess that is where all this unorganized chaos is coming from called my life! HA!

I am waiting for the workers comp people to approve my physical therapy. Ever since the prp injections in my arm, my right lateral (outside) arm has not been right. I have been in pain everyday, some days worse than others. It is terrible to just move your arm and to hurt. I know people think I complain alot, in essence I don't because I am in pain every day. I just complain on the days when I can't stand the pain.

I am worried. I am driving down to NC to see my parents in a few weeks. I still can't use my right arm to drive for more than 5 minutes at a time. Lately, if I go to stretch it, it locks up too, so I am nervous. It will be just me and my son, and he can't drive he's not even 10 yet! I do have a plan though. I am going to make sure I bring lots of ice, and if it hurts too much, I will pull over and put my little elbow patch with the ice on, and I have my ointments, ladocaine patches and of course narcotics. I wont' use those until I am at my parents, and only if needed.

Anyway, this has caused me to be way behind in my stamping. I usually have my Christmas cards out the weekend of Thanksgiving. I have been putting it off. I don't know if it is because of my arm, or I just don't care this year. Who knows. I have about 10 more to still make, but these are my most recent ones.

Thank goodness for the Splitcoaststampers challenges. If it weren't for them and seeing all the ladies marvelous works, I don't think I would have been inspired to make what I have made. I even cut down my Christmas list this year. I'm only mailing to 50 people this year. Years past, it was as high as 100 people.

Thanks for looking, have a great day.
