...Or the best laid plans of mice and a woman...?

 It's been nine days since I wrecked my knee, to be exact--tore my medial collateral ligament on my 'good' knee. We are hopeful it will heal, in a month or so. The other knee has already had two knee replacements.



Hence, I have all the gear for being laid up.  See the huge lump on the knee, there, --yep that's still swelling after 8 days. 


Some things have changed since my 2010 knee replacements---like available drugs. And, let me mention that TYLENOL does squat, for an inflamed knee, swelling, and sharp(shudder) pain. Since I'm a senior citizen...other medications are no longer acceptable. I have to love my Doc, though, and he has prescribed a muscle relaxer which helps with all the cramping and I have had two decent nights of sleep, finally.


This is my window view---out there is all the Spring yard work, and planting that needs to be done. Poor hubby will really have a work out. I had managed to clean out the front flower bed, plant some perrenials that needed to be split. But, golly---4-6 weeks is a long time in the Spring of the year, to be laid up.


This what my bedroom view looks like---I can't really even get over there...the walker won't fit. Who knew how precious where your underwear drawer should be? The computer is set for an automatic duty---so I just cross my fingers it's working. 
The pic on the tv...cracks me up--looks like a mashed up knee. 


I've been putting my blogging laptop here, so I can get to it, and then slide it back down safely without having to strain.

Sigh---oh, yea---my blogging. For those viewing my doll blog---barbieoldnewgreenredo, it will be down for at least a few weeks, unless I recycle photos, etc. All my doll and craft supplies/equipment are down in the basement craft room.

My blog-oldnewgreenredo---I might be able to recycle a few photos and post, but, I won't be taking any new photos. (Hubby will do some--he just finished the greenhouse), but none of my Spring projects will be completed. After our awful long winter, we finally have a chance for some nice weather and hopefully I will make it to the porch when it's nice.

I've put my Etsy shop, BarberryLane on Vacation---until I'm able to go to the basement and do the shipping again. 

Well, making tons of lemonade here---and I'll post when I have something useful to share! I am enjoying viewing all the wonderful posts of my fellow bloggers.

6/24 Update finally have a date with a Surgeon, we shall see!

  1. Hello, just wanted to pop in to say I hope you're feeling better! Also wanted to ask if I was missing any other Barbie blogs that you know of? Any of the folks in your club have one?
    Take care,
    Lynn

  2. Thank you Lynn, I forgot I had sent you a private email on your question---just wanted to respond here, too. I'm seeing a surgeon next Wednesday. Seems, I've trashed more than the one ligament in that knee and it hasn't really improved. I'm going to have someone drag some things upstairs to work on the dolls now.
