I am here

blogged by me domestic goddess On 10/20/2010 10:35:00 PM
Sorry for the lack of blogging these last few days, life hasnt gone as planned, does it ever, LOL.
Monday I had a Dr's appointment and 30 minutes later, it was confirmed that I have Osteroarthritis in my right knee, right hand and neck. As you can imagine it wasnt something that settled with me easily, and I am still trying to work it out in my head. Medication that I take for the pain, knocks me out cold and the last few days I have needed to take my cocktail of meds to ease the pain in my knee.
Whilst I am coming to terms with my condition, if anyone has some tips on diet and exercise I would be most greatful!
I know I have to lose some weight to ease the load on my knee, but like all women, when I heard the news I did not reach out for an apple, but a packet of yums yums! That sure aint gonna help my problem now is it!!

So who joined in all the fun at the weekend over at Pencil Lines? A lot of inspiration and sketches can still be found over on the website. Deadline for layouts/cards is October 23rd 12pm GMT

I designed a new sketch, sketch 209 for our celebrations.
I used a photo of the girls from the summer, and used lots of Crate paper product.

Sketch 209

Layout - Love

Supplies : Crate Paper pattern papers , Crate Paper chipboard, Prima flowers, Dear Lizzy ribbon, Prima crystals

Thanks for stopping by

    Sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I have that in my big toes--hurts a lot; i only wear ugly shoes that don't allow much movement--don't know what you could do about a knee in that condition... obviously, losing weight would help--but like you, I reach for something bad!!!!
    Love your layout!

    Aw, time to take care of yourself and your body I guess! I heard swimming is supposed to be of luck..I know I'd probably react the way you do if it was me sooo *cough* *hugs*

    Hope you'll find relief soon, Anna. As far as the diet, I think it is all about moderation. If you deny yourself something completely, you only want it more. Have what you want, just eat smaller portions. And the layout is simply gorgeous!
