One-Handed Pecking

My last post was about life hitting you like an avalanche. Well I'm back to report that LIFE is still boring down in huge clouds of glorious, momentous events.

Like the event of the year: Daniel and Klea's wedding. Wow was it wonderful. Truly a heaven-made match. And you should see the pictures! Stunning!

Then there's the runner-up event of the year. THE CUTEST DRAPER IDOL JUNIOR WINNER EVER!!!! Man, what a day that was.

We also have life-changing, phenomenal surgery that I want to tell the world--or at least all lymph sufferers--about.

Finally, a fire on our mountain last night. Scary, eerie, entertaining, awe-inspiring and heart-wrenching all at the same time.

And I'm being TORTURED!!!!!

See, I have nothing but time to blog about all these things, but I am currently required to lie around full time with my arm in the air. I'm happy to do it in exchange for a skinny, light-weight arm. But like a dancer on crutches, my fingers are aching to dance across the keyboard. These few little lines of uninspired prose have taken nearly an hour of pecking, since I not only have just one hand, but the keyboard is propped above my line of sight. If you could see all the mistakes I've fixed you'd be super impressed.

So I will tell those stories eventually, in the meantime this will have to do for my story-telling fix.

I am impressed you were able to type this blog post! That takes skill. It has been a momentous year, hasn't it? And those moments aren't over! You're going to have a nice skinny arm for the birth of your first granddaughter! :)
