I'm not 30 and healthy!!!! DUH!!!!
My body rudely reminded me of that for this past week by letting me know that I was doing way more than I should have been. I ignored all the near falls and just kept going,not a good idea. So out came the wheelchair. Also in my happiness and excitement about the house,I forgot that Spring is my worst time of year. We've had rain and thunderstorms everyday that affect my brain tumor. The barometric pressure changes and causes pain and pressure in my head. But I'm making progress,I was able to take a shower yesterday!!! I can't just sit here and do nothing,so I've been hooking up a storm!!!! Not on my big rug though. It's gotten pretty heavy,a little too much to deal with right now,so it's been lots of small rugs for selling.
The other house STILL isn't empty yet!!! John found an ad in the paper for a guy to clear out houses for barter or negotiating,so I called him. He's been workin' on it and I've been giving him lots of things. Including my much loved vintage 70" round drop leaf table with 6 chairs and a matching bench. I think when he's done he's going to owe me money!!! I don't know how much is left since I haven't been able to go over there in a week. John goes,but he really can't do much with only 1 hand free because of carrying the oxygen bottle in the other hand. I'll be so glad when that place is empty and we can be done with it!!! The garage here is getting pretty full of stuff,so this "sicky" stuff has to stop so that I can start going through it all and put it away!!!
Hopefully my next post will be pictures of all the things I've been hooking,while I can't do anything else!!! But the pieces all need to be steamed and that involves standing which hasn't been happening.
Oh,one more thing!!! The other morning when I got up,John said,after you pour your coffee go look out the front door. When I looked there was 2 ramps that had been put there. One for me to get out the front door and one to get off the porch!!!! These areas are step downs,only a few inches tall,but too much for my electric wheelchair to get down. But NOW I can!!!!! They were made and placed there by one of the guys who works here and we didn't even see him do it!!!! I thank God everyday that we were able to move here!!!!
Hoping TODAY is a better day!!!!


  1. I hope you start to feel better soon ~ try to take care of yourself!

  2. Well hope your moving and putting away is almost finished. Take it easy and enjoy some time crafting the "housework" can get done as you feel up to it!

  3. Hi Sherry,
    I just became a follower of your blog and just love your rugs. I see from this post we may have a few things in common. I am off work with a disability and have turned to rug hooking as a way to stay creative. I look forward to seeing your latest creations. I hope you are feeling well soon.

  5. Hi Sherry, I also say take it easy. I send my best wishes and hopefully you'll start feeling stronger, Hugs Cheri

  6. Hi, Sherry. I'm volunteering at the front desk at church. All I have to do is answer phones and greet people coming in so I got to read a lot of blogs today. I found yours - wish I knew where you live and I could volunteer to help you. :o) I'm not a rug hooker but absolutely love the love the one you're working on. I'll "stay tuned" so I can see it when you're done. Linda, NE Iowa
