I thought I would keep everyone in the loop. My surgery was postponed until March 2, because my doctor is sick. So, I'm just sitting around waiting until I can start the healing/rehabilitation process. I am using up all my PTO and I have to switch shifts for three weeks. So I am the newest graveyard as of Monday. BOO! I will certainly keep everyone updated.
I've been stuck at home due to an injury to my hand, so I thought I'd make the best of it and completely make-over my blog. What do YOU think? Opinions, please!!!!!
So, I know I'll get e-mails asking what happened if I don't spill the beans, so....I used to store my nail polish in a glass vase, til Saturday. I caught the vase as it was falling from the shelf. It shattered in my hand, so now I have to have surgery ((Thursday)) to repair tendons and nerves in my right thumb.
Wipe up the drool! Compose yourself! You, too, reader(s). I always talk to myself when I'm excited! Lushae is offering $5,000 in their beautiful designs. All you have to do is add one of their various buttons to your blog. Such as this one:
I really will shut up about scarves for a while after this post, PROMISE! But I finished three scarves this weekend. I'm so excited!!!
Fairly stiff, very WARM scarf. Given to Step-dad's wife for Christmas.
SUPER long camoflauge scarf. My boss requested this one, and it seemed like a fun idea. To get a feel of how long this thing really is, think about this: I'm 5'3", wrapped once this scarf hits the ground. She loves it!
Long burgundy cowl-neck scarf. I picked this yarn up at Wal*Mart on a whim, and I really like it. It has flecks of your primary colors in it. Very cute. No owner yet.
And I bought these shoes because they were $10 and so unique and cute. I mean, tan suede "converse wanna-be's" with faux fur lining. Problem: What in the hell do I wear these with? What would you wear them with?
I really wanted to make a real simple mesh scarf. So I copied the pattern from the oh so many beautiful mesh scarves on Flickr. And I decided that I should go with a simple color. Now, I really want a royal purple one with smaller gaps. Here's my mesh scarf:
The pictures aren't real clear, but the scarf color is cream.
True to my New Year's Resolution, I'm working on getting rid of my debt this year. I started the year with $3,078.65 of personal debt. This includes my car, payday loan and apartment debts. That's all accumulated within a year's time. Let's see how long it takes to erase. It's been a month, I'm down to $2,838.40. Not bad, huh?
And here are some pictures from my 24th Birthday party!
