Hello There, I'M BACK

Hello to everyone and yes I'm back finally.  It has taken me a very long time to get to this point.  For those of you who don't know what happened and why I have been away, well I had a car accident, a hit and run and though I was not what one would consider seriously injured, thank God, the accident did nearly destroy my left arm, elbow crushed and the upper portion about 5 or more inches above the elbow broken into over a dozen piece.  The inserted metal pins and a metal plate to hold it together but it is still not completely healed and from what they tell me, I will forever be in pain.  Oh well, that's what they know, but I have a greater doctor who can take that away.  God is good and most days there is very very little pain. Usually because I have done something stupid like pick up the dinner plates or pick up a pot full of something.  Yep, that is a no-no.  Not supposed to ever lift with that arm again, of course, I do anyway, but I do try very hard to only use my right arm.  But now the doc says I can type again and I can do my bead work again and I have been on a roll for the last week or so.  I'll post pics at the bottom.

I want to say thank you to all those who have stayed with me and promise to be much better about blogging from here out.

Other news in my house is that we finally have a car, I love it, though I don't drive much, amazing how much you need both hands to do that. LOL.  That is okay however, I hit 62 a couple of days ago so it is just fine to let someone chauffeur me around for awhile.

"Little man" my grandson is doing great (most days) the ADHD is almost under control with medication.  I am not sure I like the medication but it helps and we get most of the school work done.  No rules or schedules, since we home school and he loves his math on the computer so that helps.

My daughter is up for a new position at the Depot which will give her full time work.  It will also mean she gets a lot more contact with the customers which is what she is really really good at, problem solving for unhappy customers so that they leave happy and will be returning customers.

Ok like I said I been beading like a crazy woman.

So here are a few of the things I have done in the last couple of weeks.  Please let me know what you think.
