Mama Can't Run*

Well girls I am sorry to say that I have done myself in.  Though I still don't know how I did it, I injured my lower back sometime Easter weekend.  Doctor visits, x-rays and an MRI revealed a bulging disc or two.  My treatment plan is pending a trip to the neurologist. Sadly, I have discovered the true meaaning of the term "comfort food".  I find myself eating non-stop and finally realized I am doing it as a pain/discomfort distraction.  Not good for the waistline or the lower back!

In spite of this physical issue, there is crafty news to report.  Some months ago I was in a particularly deluded state and volunteered to chair TLG's school auction.  I am here to tell you that, even with the help of my fabulous fellow committee members, this is a daunting and sometimes humbling task.  It looks as though we shall have somewhere close to 85 attendees.  We have fantastic silent auction items. And each class has come up with a themed basket and an art piece to be auctioned live.   I'll give you two guesses as to who is incharge of the live auction item for TLG's class... Hint: the item is a painted floor cloth.

The big night is this coming Saturday; wish us luck and lots of fund raising money!

NOTE:  I'd started this post on the 28th of April and am only getting to publish now. Above are pictures of our painted floor cloth (easy peasy - let me know if you want to know how to make one of your own!) and the event (our theme was "Celebrating the Cherry Blossoms").

*Not that I had begun training.

Oh no! Poor you.

Good luck with the auction and keep eating the Vicodin.
