Hi there from the comfort of my sofa. This is a different kind of renovation post – a little reconstruction to get myself back in working order.I had bunion surgery on my left foot today, it was actually surgery on the big toe and my pinky since I had different kinds of bunions on both. Sounds like fun, right? It’s been over 12 hours since the surgery and I’m doing okay. It isn’t a cake walk by any means, but it isn’t as bad as I expected. Granted my foot is still partially numb, but I hope to start feeling like I don’t have a 500lb left foot soon. If you or anyone you are close to is considering bunion surgery, I’m keeping notes on my bunion surgery recovery to share with anyone interested, just not on the blog. People not considering bunion surgery do not want to be subjected to that. Hell, I don’t even want to be subjected to it considering what I’ve seen out there! I’m keeping notes to share because so far this is not as horrific as the stories and blogs I’ve read online. And that isn’t the pain meds talking 😉
Well this wouldn’t be a DIY blog for real, if I didn’t show was I was up to in the house. In classic Anna fashion, I decided to tackle the craft room last week in an attempt to get some more space in there. Especially since I will be working from home for a few weeks post surgery and my crafts have taken over the house. On Saturday night, two nights before surgery, this is what the room was looking like. Who decides to turn an already finished and good looking craft room upside down right before surgery? This crazy girl.
I re-painted the room (same color!), moved some stuff around and made some additions. I’m happy with the progress from Saturday and Sunday, but there are still some items to hang and add. Those have to be saved for when I can stand up again or Ray can get some help. Maybe with the help of my handy dandy knee scooter, I can get some photos in by next week or so.
And since this was a planned surgery, I have some content saved up to hold me over until I’m more mobile. I also expect there may be a series of crotchet projects to hit the blog in the coming weeks since I think this might be the perfect time to
perfect my craft learn what I’m doing, while I’m laid out with my furry caretakers by my side 😉
Off to get my ice pack and play on Pinterest. If that was a glass of wine, I could almost pretend this was a lazy, regular, Monday night 😉
