Sick some more

I've spent the last four days with a horrible locked up shoulder/headache. I haven't done anything but sleep and hope that the pain subsides. Finally this morning the headache let me go. I hope it lasts through the day so that I can get back into the studio tonight..

Finally I had some good stuff go on in the studio last night! After a couple of tries, I was able to do another interweave knot on a set of romel reins! YAY! This is the longest that I have spent in the studio in two weeks! I'm hoping that there will be a lot more time spent in the studio this weekend!

Nuthin accomplished

Unfortunately, I had a lot of pain this weekend that prevented me from getting anything accomplished in the studio. I spent an hour up there today but my stomach muscles and innards started to hurt quite a bit and I had to stop and lay down. I'm pretty frustrated about that but at this point (7pm est sunday night) it can't be helped.

I'll be getting my stitches out tommorrow morning and I really can't wait although I am really apprehensive about the pain. Hopefully having these stiff nylon stitches gone will result in a lot less pain.

I was able to actually put on some very soft bermuda style pants today so that I could go to my favorite restaurant for their Mexican Brunch. If you're ever in Shelbyville, KY for Lunch, I suggest you go to Marimba's brunch. I love it so much that we go every sunday. I actually start to crave it if we miss a sunday!

As well as can be expected!

It has been approximately 7 days since my surgery and everything is going as well as can be expected. I have had some pain that has required some serious medication, but this is mostly at night when my body is tired. I can't sleep all of the way through the night though. I've been getting up between 3:30am and 4:30 am every night for the last month or so. I'm not sure if this is stress or what but I was hoping that with all of the emotional and physical stress I would at least sleep longer.

I miss making tack like crazy. I hate sitting and doing nothing or laying around in bed. I'm hoping to be "back in production" by next week.

I do have the below western show halter on ebay this week for sale! One of the very few sales items I have throughout the year. So if'n your innerested, please go take a look! :-)

Not going to be a good week

This past saturday I spent running around to friends houses. I don't do nearly enough of this. I'm very prone to being a hermit for some reason. I don't call folks, I don't answer the phone and I definitely don't go "visiting" very often. I'm lucky and grateful for the friends i DO have!

Saturday night though, me and my bestest friends went to the Shelbyville (ky) Horse Show. I took about 260 photos and only got about 2 really good ones.. Ha! My camera and I were arguing quite a bit. I wore it out when I went to the 2006 Arabian Horse Nationals. It now does not like to focus or take pictures when I tell it to. The weather was africa hot but then it rained briefly and cooled everything off.

Sunday, I was just exahusted so I "veg'd" most of the day. I hate not being productive but my brain just couldn't focus on what I was doing and I kept having to start over. I finally quit and went to take a nap.

At the end of this week I will be having surgery and probably be laid up for a week or so. Wish me luck!
