Slice of Life Sundays: 4-19-15

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done one of these posts. I was busy getting a bunch of stencils made for an event that I was helping sponsor. The event was yesterday. I hope that the attendees liked my stencils. It’s a challenge trying to grow a small business and also working a full-time job. I also love blogging and I’ve been putting my blogging on the back burner as I’ve been working on stencils and fulfilling orders. It’s driving me nuts because the desire to blog is so strong. It’s definitely challenging trying to balance everything that I want to do in terms of blogging and my stencil business but I will find the equation that works. I knew this would happen when I decided to try my hand at selling stencils but I’m not prepared to give up blogging. I have to find a way to make it all work.

I wanted to update you on my wrist. I can’t tell you exactly what’s wrong with it because several years of x-rays and MRI’s never really showed what was going on other than some inflammation so I was just getting injections to mask the pain. I decided that I no longer wanted to get injections or take prescription medication and that there had to be another way. I’ve been going to acupuncture and let me tell you that I don’t know how or why it’s working but it’s working. My wrist pain is significantly reduced. Some days there’s no pain at all. I wish I had tried this sooner. I still lack strength in my wrist because I’ve suffered so long with pain that I’ve babied it. There were days that holding a pen and trying to write were a challenge. Now when I hold a pen it’s not so much pain that’s preventing me from writing well but lack of strength and control. I’m ready to start making cookies again soon and I’m scared to hold a piping bag for the first time. I hope that I can still pipe like I used to when I was getting the injections.

Let’s talk TV for a second. Spoiler alert here if you watch Scandal. I’m so upset that Jake is dead. What the hell Shonda? Was this necessary? I’m a huge Scott Foley fan and my heart is broken. I liked the dynamic between Jake and Olivia. He was an integral part of the show for me and the way he was taken out was lame and cheesy. You’re talking about a man who just a couple of episodes ago was portrayed as the bad guy and had surveillance on everyone did not know that he was walking into a trap? He was command. He was a B6-13 agent and he just comes flying into Olivia’s office thinking she texted him and gets taken out in a lack luster fight. No way! This was poor writing. Jake would never have gone down that easily. I guess his downfall was Olivia. He blindly came running for her and Papa Pope knew he would. I hope Olivia never gets Vermont and Fitz. That’s my rant about Scandal. Over it! Or am I? Is Jake really dead? I guess I’ll wait until next week’s episode to see if he’s truly dead before I go into full rant mode. Lol!

I’m keeping this post short. I hope you’re having a great weekend. We’ve been getting a lot of rain which is much needed but I’m ready for sunshine. Talk to you again soon.
