That's The Way It Goes...

I'd love to share some wonderful story with you today to explain why I'm not sharing a newly completed project. Perhaps a story of how I tripped through fields of chickory and Queen Anne's lace with the dogs would have been appropriate. I do like my "thoughts on a joyful and creative life" mantra, you know.

The truth is, I'm mostly flat on my back with a heating pad (and an occasional valium), having sprained my back over a week ago. It's getting better, but I've run out of cute stories, puppy pictures and book reviews to hide the fact that I've been a slacker. I'm left with the cold, hard truth. (I really am reading all those books, though!)

Please don't fret. I'll be back to my obsessive/creative (did I just make up a new term?) self soon...and I'll have something interesting for you to read about tomorrow, I promise. You're all my friends, so I know you'll understand.

Donna, I think you hit the nail on the head, obsessive/creative, haha! Why is it we think we have to "do" and "accomplish" something each day. you have my permission just to rest and relax and get to feeling better!
no need to finish any projects, we love you anyway! xoxo Debra

Donna, I'm so sorry you have a sore back! I am praying for a speedy recovery! You hit the nail on the head! I have been pondering lately my obsession with creating and now I have a name to put to it! My name is Twyla and I am obsessive/creative. Have a good day!

Donna, I hope you get to feeling better soon! I feel your pain, days go by when I can't function due to the constant back pain I have. Thank goodness though for my ability to cross stitch while laying down or I'd be in the loony bin! ;0) Take care!

Minimiss said...

Just get that back right before you start trying to be too creative. Take care.

Mandy said...

Ooh dear! How painful for you. I hope that your back settles down quickly and that you feel much better soon.

Patty C. said...

No worries - Get better soon :)

Lesley said...

Donna, Sweetie. Isn't it just like you to apologise to us when it's you that is under the weather? Get better soon, and we'll look forward to hearing from you again. Blessings luv Lesley UK

MoonBeam said...

Feel better. I enjoyed reading your book reviews.

Carol said...

Well, I loved the picture of your hat!! I'm a hat person and there are very few I don't covet.

Did you figure out what you did to hurt your back so you can avoid doing it again? How are you keeping that Corgi under control while you are reclining ~lol~.
Take care
xx, Carol

Good Morning, Donna,
I am sorry to read that you are not feeling up to par. Do take your time and give your back the time it needs to heal. Your creations will wait for you.

Have a wonderful weekend. ~Natalie

Sherri said...

Donna, you are just taking time to smell the roses that's all! Taking to to think of more creative things to start! Feel better my friend!

Createology said...

Miss Donna I am so sorry you have been under the heating pad with your back in pain. I would never think you were slacking! I was hoping you were tripping through the fields of wildflowers with Tag and Kes...okay add in Handsome but somehow that image isn't clear. May your back recover very soon so you can be your wonderful obessive/creative self once again. Sip some lemonade with those valium...

Patty said...

Hope you're feeling better and will be back on your feet son.

Sewing In CT said...

Feel better - think relaxing thoughts. O/Creative - I think you've coined a new one! I have it too! My sister has it. My next door neighbor has it. Do men get it?

Shirley said...

Donna, Hope you are feeling better. I know when your back hurts you don't really feel like doing anything. You just take care, nobody is going anywhere that is for sure. Take Care. Your Missouri Friend.

Lisa Leggett said...

Yikes! I hope your back on your feet soon Donna! There's nothing worse than being laid out and unable to do the things you want to. Healing vibes coming your way, my friend!

Jillayne said...

Oh dear - you covered that up pretty well! I'm so sorry to hear you've sprained your back - back pain is just downright horrible. I hope you are feeling better soon and back creating like crazy!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Oh no I knew something was not right when I have not heard from you. Soooooo sorry to hear about your back. I hope by now your much better and able to create with joy.
Love
Maggie

Rettabug said...

Ouch! I'm so sorry I didn't see this post sooner. Must have come up when I had the grandkidlets running underfoot.

I hope the pain has eased up by now. Alternating heat & cold is what I've been told helps it. My older sis, who has mega issues with her's, swear by ice on & off for 20 mins. at a time.

Gentle Hugs & I hope you're feeling better real soon.
