little bits of this 'n that

  • the Estate Sale I've been working on since March was a huge success.
  • the family worked the 2-day sale with me, which made it so much easier.
  • finally sold the antique chandelier I've had listed on Craig's List for many months. 
  • it didn't sell at an earlier Estate Sale I did in December.
  • still had the original 92 glass crystals.
  • perseverance really does pay off.
  • we've been doing life with one vehicle and so far so good.
  • not sure what we'll do when my husband finally gets a job.
  • watching Friday Night Lights on Netflix ~ so addicting.
  • Starbucks Frappuccinos are 1/2 off this week from 3-5pm.
  • and I have a couple dollars left on a gift card. yes!
  • I have Tendonitis/ Bursitis in my right shoulder. 
  • the pain has been unbearable since December. Sleeping is the worst.
  • needless to say, I process everything through a grid of pain & sleep deprivation.
  • oh, and fear... we have no medical insurance.
  • I'm not the most pleasant person to live with as of late.
  • went to my first Vintage Market by Junk in the Trunk. Chris & I had so much fun!
  • OMG ~ I came away with oodles of repurposed inspiration galore!!!
  • Randy & I attended a beautiful wedding over the weekend. 
  • at the very same venue my daughter got married exactly 6 months earlier.
  • very emotional remembering that magical day.
  • I sold another Estate Sale item at my yard sale a couple months ago,
  • and recently got an email from the lady showing me what her daughter did with the side table ~ I was blown away! check it out ~ The Hankful House blog
  • my 24 year old son Tyler introduced me to Duck Dynasty ~ I'm hooked!

So sorry about your shoulder Linda.
I have suffered from that too and the cold really makes it worse.
I wish I knew the answer but I use ice and ibuprofin which seems to help some.
I am so hoping your hubby gets a job soon, It's just ridiculous this age discrimination thing.
So you like Duck Dynasty? My daughter and her friends have Duck Dynasty parties..lol.
Take Care friend, I am still hoping to get out to see everyone soon.
We were 82 today and everything is finally budding out and leaves are appearing...its wonderful!

Linda, I hate to be a downer ... but sugar causes inflammation so you might try cutting out sugar to help the pain.

Or listen to this podcast (episodes re: inflammation)

I loved that chandelier! Hope it went to a good home. Let me know if you go to another Vintage Market. I'd love to go.

Praying for your health and sleep.

Miss you!
