Well, I've missed three good Estate Sales and Mid-Atlantic because of my foot! BUT, I listen to my inner voice and Monday called the orthopedist I have been to for other problems. He was out of town but I see him Friday!!!

Feel like the weight of the world been lifted from my shoulders!!! Don't know what he'll say but I have faith in him. Took my baby girl two him when she was 12 for her foot and 17 for her hand. He patched her up just fine. And I know I can trust him as some years back he sent to out of town to another surgeon who he felt was better than he for this particular surgery. Today I have full use of that hand!

I know he'll fix my foot back to normal or send me to someone who will.

My neighbor across the street has one of these trees...
Wednesday my three little granddaughters and I picked up sticks and twigs from our oak trees and the gumball fruit from the neighbor's sweet gum tree that loves to fall and bounce to our yard. Thursday and Friday they filled basket after basket of the gumballs and dumped them in our trash can.

DD came over early Saturday morning and we walked to an Estate Sale around the corner around us. We got there and there was a very long line so we went back home. Around noon we were on our way to check out the Estate sale and walking down our driveway I slipped on one of two of these
on our driveway.

So I am now sporting one of these lovelies on my left foot as I fractured fifth metatarsal.

My doctor x-rays me Tuesday sent me to ortho doctor today. He's the local university's athletes doctor and suppose to be good. I'm not sure as I want to see the one I've seen before and think the world of... Bottom line is I most likely need surgery since the area where it happens is not know for good circulation needed for bone healing. But we are trying to avoid it as my DH has a surgery next week, then we are going out of town for a long weekend and he'll have surgery again three weeks from the first one. Mine will have to wait until after he's OK. So say a prayer that the bone is healing in two weeks when he does x-rays again and that my DH's two surgeries go well and won't need the third one. If bone not healing then magnetic treatments. If those don't work surgery will be needed. For sure the OS who I've seen before will be doing it.

SO I AM SICK since won't be attending Mid-Atlantic this year as have to stay off the foot for a LONG TIME. I'll be looking for postings from all my friends in blog land who will be attending Mid-Atlantic.

Checking out Fancy Nancy. She got a game and mostly clothes as CLOTHES was her request for presents...

Youngest sister Emily munching on a chocolate football lollipop that were the favors. She's wearing the her Valentine shirt I did for her.

Middle sister Rachel waiting for her 4th birthday in a couple weeks. Notice she likes the icing from the cake and the ice-cream.

I'm still among the living. Keep wanting more snow. Have been teased since the big one Christmas Day and day after but it's been missing us in Jan and so far in February. There some talk of some this week. We'll see.

I have done two of three Valentine shirts for the dearest little granddaughters. Above is picture of two of them DD took for me. Need to do name for Emily and add it to the balloon design for the third one.

The DH is now on a Bison kick. I have put some of those on a few of his shirts.

My camera's flash died right before Christmas. So having to depend on others to take pictures for me. Waiting to get my Sam's Club, Costco and rebates checks as I have decided to spring for a nice camera at either Sam's Club or Costco.

Next project, once I get Emily's Valentine shirt done today, will be Birthday Cupcakes t-shirts for the two February Birthday Girls.
