So What's Up Doc?

Thank you everyone for your well wishes on my last post. It must have worked because when I went to see the ortho it was both good and bad news. The bad news is it is still broken. LOL. The good news is he put me in a walking cast and said I could go back to work starting Saturday. WOOHOO!!!! I was so worried about how I was going to pay my bills if I was going to be off for 6 weeks. I have to go back in 3 weeks to have it re xrayed to be sure it's healing. Right now my foot and ankle and lower leg are all swelled up and purple and my toes look like little Vienna sausages. I over did it yesterday I think, but staying home was killing me. LOL.

My NEW best friend... sigh... it goes where I go. It makes it difficult to drive, but I'm getting the hang of it. I walk weird in it and it is beginning to hurt my back but it's better than having a real cast that when they take it off your leg is a puny little hairy thing right?

I did short little trips yesterday driving around town practicing my left foot driving. I went to the Goodwill, bank, a prim shop (they were having a sale I couldn't not go lol), and to the flea market. I got some great stuff at the Goodwill, but I digress. I went to the flea market mainly to pay my fee for next month. But to my surprise the lady said she was going to make room for me to expand. WHAT???? SWEEEET!!!!! I heard through the grape vine that she was telling customers that she was trying to find the room for me to expand because I had other ladies who make prim crafts too. Of course I do my bestest friends ever!!!! So this is going to be a joint venture with my friends. Obviously I don't have a lot of time to make everything myself so I think this will be awesome. With the bigger booth we will now have room to hang shelves and cabinets and signs!!!! It won't be for a week or two as she has to make the person next to me condense their stuff. LOL.

I have a big day ahead of me of painting and going to the Restore because last week Steve and I saw something there that would be a great wall for our booth. We didn't buy it because we had no where to store it and at that point we were still in our little booth. Now we have to see if it's still there. I hope it is. It was really cheap and it would be really sturdy. I have a whole bunch of ideas swirling around my head of new items I want to make, but we'll see. So have a great day my friends.

OH I forgot to answer the question was my freezer running or not???? NO...... LOL It had come unplugged. GGGRRRRR
