Hi everyone — peeking in here for just a minute. I’m ~thisclose~ to finishing TDB (this damned book) (this draft), and since I’ve actually written close to 25K in the last month-ish, I haven’t photographed the “after” of the kitchen remodel. I’m also about to do a full re-do on my grand-daughter’s bedroom. They’ve moved into a new house where everything is beige–ceiling, floor walls, and we’ve got some pretty things to put in there. (Mostly, painting.) I’m also doing some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on her furniture (er, sort of fixing the bad version of that that I started a couple of months ago and got annoyed with… you really cannot do the wax part of that process outside in the heat. I have to fix it now, because it dried blotchy and ugly as hell. And, also, I decided I didn’t like the color I started off with, so I’m going back to a neutral creme/antique look.)
Meanwhile, I put this up on FB, but thought some of you might laugh with me:
So… I get this letter from the orthopedic doctor I visited a couple of months ago. After swimming through the medical and legal mumbo jumbo, I shall paraphrase:
Dear Klutz Causey:
Remember that really painful shot we gave you in your hip a couple of months ago? The one that made you think fracturing your hip in the first place was easy-peasy fun and games? Turns out, it’s poison. Oops! We did not see that coming. The FDA, those lazy suckers, have recalled the drug off the marketplace, and just because we used it, doesn’t mean we meant to poison you. So, totally not our fault!
btw, if your leg has been irritating you, turned red, had lesions, turned purple, or has fallen off, again, totally not our fault, but you maybe want to call us. And lie down.
Otherwise, glad to have you as patient!
We promise not to poison you next time you come in. Because we’ve seen your x-rays–face it, you’ll be back.

[Luckily, I didn’t have any of the side effects they’d listed, though I can’t say that the shot was particularly effective, either. At least I’ve been able to start back exercising.]
Hope y’all are all productive and pain free.
