I’m sure you expected to see at least ONE of the finished items by now. Yeah, me too. But then Monday night, I’m sitting and sewing the binding on my quilt (after a full day of computer work) and I move to get up and BAM, my shoulder is stabbing me with pain and it’s going up into my neck and down all the way to my fingers. Now, I have a history of neck pain but this isn’t it – it almost feels like my shoulder is dislocated. It HURT. I spent that entire night tossing and turning and crying out in bed – I couldn’t sleep at all. Lots of Ben Gay and Momentum pills were bought the next morning.

I should have known something was coming up because I’ve been having intermittent dull aching in my arm. Hello, computer! Hello, sewing and knitting!

So it’s Friday and the real pain is mostly gone except for waking up in the morning stiff and hurty – and it’s really uncomfortable for me to spend a long time on the computer (which sucks – I have a ton of work to do) and I can’t knit or sew for much more than a half hour at a time. I have an appt. next Wed. at an orthopedist and we’ll see. In the meanwhile, the green Lisette sweater seems to be winning. Don’t even get me started on the Aran pullover sleeves – those are going to need massive help once all seamed to get rid of a huge pocket of extra material (what on earth was Interweave thinking – letting a pattern go in with such wack shaping) – and the quilt binding will hopefully be done in a few days.

Sigh.

there’s always one runner who gets hurt in every race…if you’re racing by yourself, odds are it’ll be you, eh? :)

p.s. i see by your MOG you are enjoying midlake… :)

Poor Jackie. :( I’m glad you’re going to a good doctor.

Ouch. Good on you for taking care of yourself.

Something to say?
