Art – As A Distraction

I started one of my doodles recently… Knowing I would need a distraction:

I’m trying to prepare for foot surgerythe fusing of big toe on my left foot due to arthritis.

I try to keep my blog positive and not share this part of my life with you as I know we ALL have our problems!    And yet, I feel I need to share this part of my life with you now – not for your pity but for your understanding.  I live with chronic pain and osteoarthritis – why I create art with humor!  🙂

I’m scheduled for surgery on my left big toe, March 23rd.  I could use your good thoughts and prayers.

I have put off surgery for five years but I still worry about it.  Two weeks at home and at least six more weeks (plus or minus) recovery time.  Yes, I can drive after two weeks since it is my left foot.  😉

I’ve tried to plan ahead and stock the freezer and the cupboard for my hubby so he doesn’t have to get much take-out.  I’ve tried to get caught up with housework and laundry.  I have tried to get caught up at work (we work together).   And yet, I still think of things I didn’t do!

I will post a weird bird on Wednesday and maybe throw in a couple of unexpected posts here and there for a couple of weeks!  And I’m hoping I can get caught up with your blogs during this time!  🙂

I’d love it if you started a doodle to share with me!

Cheers!  🙂
