Seriously . . .

Why does my luck have to lean to the dark side? I mean, why can't I win the lottery? Why instead do I have to be one of the 5% of people who need to have ANOTHER surgery on their spine? Sigh . . . I am jumping ahead of myself. They haven't actually said I need a second surgery. YET. But the same discs they removed parts of in September are bulging again and causing some weakness in my left foot. Oy. What luck, huh? So put all your good jou-jou together and send it my way because I seriously have no patience for this.

Meanwhile, I'm in Baltimore visiting my parents and we had a blizzard yesterday. Close to 2 feet of snow!

It really is beautiful but there is a lot to clean up today and I am hobbling around and not much help.

Before I made the drive down here I spent a few days having my niece and nephew visit from Oregon. The kids have never been to NYC before and we had a great time seeing the Statue of Liberty and visiting the REAL Santa at Macy's. Their favorite part?

Riding the subway. :)

I've also been making a few things but many are gifts and swaps so I can't share them yet. Except for these needle books:

Aren't they cute? The fabric is vintage scraps I found at the flea market in Connecticut in the fall. Once the holidays are over and I'm past whatever medical crap is coming my way I'll list them, plus my extensive vintage apron collection, in the shop.

I hope to be back one more time before Christmas with some photos but just in case let me wish you the merriest, happiest day of the year.

Peace on Earth.

I love you, you are sooooooo much like me, so I am giving you a few minutes more on the pitty pot, then pull yourself up and realize God has something amazing for you in all this rest, so you better be polishing up your skate blades, because once this is over and you recover, there will be no way to contain the blessings He is going to pour down on you!
2010 Baby, 2010!

Oh Rebecca! I'm so sorry to hear about your back! I hope it will miraculously get better on it's own and surgery won't be needed. Have a Very Merry Christmas! (And Love your new banner!!!)

Rebecca, love the way this blog is lookin' so festive and oh so pretty. I'm sorry to hear about your second back surgery. Of course I am available anytime for some coaching or reiki session. Let me know when, lady! Know that I love you and pray for your speedy recovery.

ohhhh the snow does look beautiful but I'm glad it's you and not

I REALLY hope you don't end up needing surgery again. I'll keep my fingers crossed that doesn't have to come to that.

I received your package over the weekend and LOVE your ornie! It looks lovely adorning my tree! My package was sent late but it is on its way to Baltimore (I kinda took a liberty on the term you like it)!
