~ Making Progress! ~

I am so happy to report that I'm making progress!  They replaced the pad and carpeting yesterday that was damaged by the water last week. Now I can return to organizing that closet and bedroom. It feels so good to have a semblance of order. My knees are still very painful but it isn't consistent ~ at least not the last couple of days. It's a challenge to sleep at night but so far, so good. Of course, I didn't have any decorations out for Christmas...except a glass vase with red balls in it. I saw them somewhere along the way and added that to my kitchen counter.

My hands and nails are so dry...and really scary looking! :-)  I'm going for a mani/pedi tomorrow and can't wait.  LOVE doing that ~ love feeling pampered!  I have a few things to return so plan to do that while I'm out and about.

I am making an effort to visit everyone's blogs and catch up...I've really missed feeling in touch. Hope that your world is bright, fun and blessed!

xoxo
Pat

Welcome back Pat! I was missing for a bit too and I'm slowly making my way around to say Hello.

I'm glad everything is getting fixed at your place. That did not sound good.

Show us your new nails. That sounds like a fun thing! :)

Pat, I am so glad to hear that things are getting back to normal! I know what it feels like for your life to be upside down. Just one day at a time. That is OUR mantra:)

Hi Pat, so nice of you to stop by to wish me a happy new year. I see I have missed out on a lot at your blog. Our computer was finally replaced with an new one last night. It was so difficult to manuever around blogland with our old one. I am SO sorry about your knees. My brother in law suffers all the time with his from a fall he had many years ago. Are you facing knee replacement? I'm also sorry about the water damage. What a mess. Sounds like we have have issues with pillows. :) I do hope you get help for your knee pain. Sounds awful!
Blessings in the new year,
Donna

I hope your mani/pedi make you feel really good....it always helps me! I think the winter is really hard on nails and skin...mine are dry too, and I hate it!

Sounds like you've had rather a time of it, but that things seem to be looking up. I hope things continue to improve, and that 2011 will prove to be an amazing year for you.
A picture of your freshly manicured nails would be fun. ;-)
Spoil yourself!
