Those of you who know me best know that my super-hero power is the ability to find new and entertaining ways to hurt myself.  Well…entertaining for everyone else.  Last week I added to that list.  Ok, so the event itself wasn’t that entertaining, but the timing was!

So what happened?  I was walking up some stairs, tripped, and came down really hard on my right wrist.  The docs thought it might be broken so I’ve been wearing a cast-like splint ever since!  I’m waiting to hear back today from the second set of x-rays.  My doc didn’t see anything but we need the official radiologist report before I can graduate down to a normal brace.  I’m really looking forward to that call!  I’m sick of this thing.  Especially because my thumb is incased…  I want my thumb back!

I’m sure you want to hear about the irony.  Well – this all happened four days before our first craft show here in Ellensburg.  It  was supposed to be my week of creating jewelry like mad – my time to focus on the business since school was out – and that all was for naught.  Instead I spent the week watching movies and reading books.  Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy both of those past-times, but it was hard when I had so much else I wanted to do!

The good news is my PSS joined me for the weekend.  Because of her I was still able to do the craft show.  She was my pack-llama!  We had lots of fun girly time over the weekend and my dear husband was marvelous in how well he put up with us!

Over the last two days my wrist is finally starting to feel like its healing.  I can type without pain – and I’m thinking I might be able to get some cleaning and organizing done today.  And maybe – if I’m very lucky – I’ll get to make some simple jewelry 🙂

Oh yes!  Another reason my PSS is simply awesome – she bought me Breaking Dawn!  The newest book in the Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer.

It was fantastic.  I won’t say more than that because I don’t want to give away anything I shouldn’t for those of you still waiting to read it – but I will say I loved it!  I had so many questions on how she was going to resolve different matters in this book, and I think she answered all of my questions satisfactorily.  At least…I don’t remember any questions being left over 😛  That is always a good thing!  I look forward to seeing what else she comes up with in the future 🙂

In fact – if the book hadn’t come in the mail yesterday I proably would have posted yesterday – but I was too engrossed in the 756 pages of fun to do anything else!
