Down but not out

I have a sewing room now!  The down side is I can’t do any sewing in it yet.  Let me back up a month and tell you what is going on.  We sold our house and partway through packing I hurt my already bad back much worse.  It was the most excruciating pain I have ever been in and I have had two babies!  I think it didn’t help that it lasted a whole lot longer than both my labors combined.  My very sweet husband worked from home and took care of me, my wonderful friends from church stepped in and brought dinners for my family and helped pack my house.  They were amazing! 


We are now moved into my parent’s house with them while we are having a house built.   My very generous mom cleared space for me to have a sewing area.  She has these great Ikea storage cabinets and is letting me use half of them to store most of my quilting supplies and fabric. 


It is still a bit messy because I am still recovering and can’t get in there to organize or do any quilting.  It is killing me not to be able to spend hours in there ever day creating.


I have been doing some knitting while I lay in my back chair so that helps me pass the time and I am enjoying it.  And it helps to have all ten seasons of Friends on DVD.  


I have an appointment to go see an acupuncturist, one of the few things I haven’t tried these last ten years dealing with my back.  I also have an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon so I can hopefully get an MRI and see if anything has changed and if I am finally open to talking about surgery and if it would even help. 


In the meantime I am so happy my parents moved up here to Washington and that we have this time with them.  We are having a lot of fun with them and I am so happy for my kids to have this time with them too.
