I see that LJ is finally letting us fix up the new friends feed page with some colors and images. I might start using it instead of my old style. The thing I like about my old style is that it has my links list on it so I can reach all the other stuff I like. The new friends feed page won't give me a links list so I still need to open my own journal page to get that.
Been doing a lot of worrying about my body - my left wrist and my left shoulder. The wrist that I fell on back on the 8th, I have re-decided that I probably did
get a hairline fracture - it is healing slowly but still weak. I'm back to wearing the splint if I'm doing anything "powerful" with it. The shoulder - I have had pain in the shoulder for months. Whenever I lift my arm over my head and back (like when you put on a coat) it hurts the worse. But I just figured that it was calcium deposits/arthritis and kept on going with it. After the fall it seemed to get worse and the entire arm was hurting so much it was occupying my mind a lot of the time. Berbella steered me in the direction of looking up rotator cuff tendinitis/shoulder impingement and that really sounds like what it is. The best thing to do is to not use it
and not do things that make it hurt
(the opposite of what I was doing - I was trying to stretch it and make it move more!) and to take aspirin for the inflammation. Anyway I spent a lot of time in bed yesterday listening to audio books and thinking kind thoughts about my body instead of the fearful and unkind thoughts I had been thinking about it before.
Still winter here - cold and sifting snow today.
Roswell - got this new neat app that makes photos into etchings
Made 2 dozen pickled eggs the day before yesterday and we (Dave, me and the kids) ate them up very quickly so I made a new batch of 2 dozen last night.
Obsessing about the upcoming move. I love the idea of remodeling and decorating a new space and Dave and I are having lots of conversations about what we want to do over there, which is great. But there is so much OLD STUFF to deal with, go through, sell, give away, throw out! That is the part that I dread. Dread and Hate!!!! I think I have tied all that worry in with my arm and the pain and worry of that and just overwhelmed myself with it. I have to constantly
remind myself that it will all be OK and it will get done somehow when the time is right. Today is not
the day and when the day comes it will
For today though - I should list something on etsy - been very lax with that lately. And then... art therapy maybe (?) I feel like I need that to help deal with all these other issues - or else make some jewelry - I do have a piece near completion...
