Just a Little Stir Crazy!

The following picture is a little graphic, but since this is my journal, I had to put it in...skip ahead if you'd like!!!
I had to have my Achille's repaired  the week before Christmas and while I'm not uncomfortable, I am getting extremely bored!!!
Ten days post-op, but it sure felt good to get those stitches out!!

 I wanted a black cast, but they talked me into a pink one will be black!!! Black goes with not so much!
I have a great little scooter that I can zoom all over the house on, but I crawl up the stairs like a two-year old!!
I've read three books in the last three days...
Watched the entire first season of this...
Worked on a little stitchery, finished my Christmas cards, mastered the art of standing on one leg while showering, and very little else! I'm going a little stir-crazy!!!
I have spent extreme amounts of time on Pinterest, but as far as far as doing anything truly productive, it's just not happening!!!

We had a wonderful New Years celebration with dear friends, playing games, visiting and eating copious amounts of food!

There were some very competitive people know who you are!!!!

A wonderful way to ring in the New Year! 12 is my favorite number so I'm expecting great things this year!!!! Walking on two feet would be FanTasTic!!!

I can't imagine what I'll have to blog about over the next two months, as the view from the couch just doesn't change all that much!

Wishing you all the best in 2012!


  1. Gee guess you cannot click over somewhere else before you finish your comment or you have to start all over. So as I said that foot looks sore!! Why??? Glad you still enjoyed your New Years celebration and I wish I lived closer because I would visit and sit and stitch along with you!

  2. May I come over Friday morning? With a meal? Ready to vacuum or whatever for you? Let me know.
    I can sit around with you for a bit too. I'm good at sittin' around!

  3. I hope that you have a very quick and easy recovery. My son is looking at surgery on his feet real soon. He is so ready to have it done so he can walk normal again. You picked a good time to have surgery so you can have the cold weeks to stay inside and relax. You can look forward to Spring and be healed so you can get outside by then and play!!!

    Happy New Year!

  4. I guess I'm the only one that would think your incisions are really COOL :) Hope you are doing well and possibly up for a visit soon??

  5. Hi, so sorry to hear you are couch-bound. I hope you will be able to do some things you like. A very Happy New year to you and I hope it will be a great one.

  6. So sorry about your ouchie foot:( Hope you are doing better every day:)

  7. Oh Holly Dolly! You poor thing!

    I wish that Michelle and I could come out there and clean the house for you and make meals and play games and watch great BBC shows and talk and giggle.

    Glad to know you're on the mend and GOOD for you for taking care of this instead of just living in intense pain!

    loves you!
    xoxo steewie

  8. Holly, I hope you are getting around a little easier now. I just wanted to let you know I gave you an award on my blog today. You do not have to do anything with it just wanted to share!

  9. Two whole months? I hope they pass by quickly for you. I broke my foot a couple of summers ago and couldn't drive (all our cars have manual transmissions) and I thought THAT was bad but at least I was able to get out and go to work!

    Hope your recovery is speedy,
