So far this year has been like the house of mirrors. Big promises, unexpected turns and some ugly distortion. 
I won’t go into detail about it here but I’ve sent a very personal email to my subscribers. If you’re interested in receiving it please sign up here. I’m not sure what future ones will be like but let’s just see.
Thursday I’m going in for my long awaited hand surgery (35 years to be exact). Operation bump-be-gone. You may have read about it when I posted about it here last year. Surprisingly it’s been one of my most popular posts of 2015. 
The only nerves I have about the whole thing are only in regard to how long my right hand will be out of commission. I mean, I’m right handed. And to keep sane I paint and write or at least exercise. I can’t imagine not doing any of those things. Well I can imagine it..and it’s not pretty. I’m one of those people who spirals downward without stimulation.
If all goes well, I will only have a few days of downtime. In a way I’m actually looking forward to being forced to rest. I should probably enjoy it and stop whinging. Cross my heart (with my left hand) I’ll do my best…Netflix queue- I’m coming for YOU (suggestions welcome).
Anyway- apologies in advance if I’m off the radar for a minute or two.

  3. I can't believe it's gone! Big reveal next week and I'm thinking it might even be a little bit emotional for me. I have no idea what my hand really looks like.

  4. I got the bandages taken off (minus a piece of tape) but I got to see it for the first time. Despite a big, healing scar, my hands match! It's a crazy thing. Can't wait to show you. 😉
