@Cerulean He broke his Fibula..He was able to put weight on it at six weeks. In fact the doctor said weight bearing after he was cleared would help with the healing. He said he wore his boot to protect his leg if it was uneven ground for a while. He was cleared to run at three months..but he was doing marathons at that point. He just was pretty careful with it…He did just normal activities walking on flat surfaces at six weeks..and gradually built up.
Ouch! That’s a bad break! Im curious to see what the doctor says to me. Thanks so much for sharing his experience! It makes me feel better - when I googled healing time I read 4-6 months
I actually managed to have a decently productive late afternoon work session!
Having a PS family rooting for you, and putting on bling that makes you happy is the best medicine!
In New England, USA, there is a new museum that specializes contemporary, realism painting (paintings that are painted by living artists who paint in a representational, non-abstract style.). This is great news for my field.
Today on Instagram, I made a negative comment that will probably affect my career.
A group of artists affiliated with the museum (their work was bought by the museum and hangs in its permanent collection) painted a group self portrait of themselves to give to the museum's owner. That's a really nice gesture. The painting is lovely and beautifully done.
However, the painting is of ALL white and mostly male artists.
When the image was published online, and getting tons and tons of praise (basically that the seven are all gods and fabulous and how selfless to donate a self portrait to the museum, they fart gold, etc) I made the following public comment:
"The painting is beautifully painted. But it is a sea of white faces, mostly male. Surely there are other "worthy" painters that could have been included?"
Let the hate storm towards me begin.
I could name twenty amazing painters who are women, or of color, or women of color, that could have, should have been included. But I know I will get SH*T for my comment.
I’m so depressed, the only thing getting me through was thinking and obsessing about this antique ring that sold a few days before they answered my husband’s dm. We had been trying to contact them via email and website for over 3 months. Now I have to deal with reality of getting iron transfusion dealing with my lupus and have to get my implants removed because they’ve been recalled for causing cancer and I have all the symptoms so back in April I had to get biopsied, CT’s can all that ( no Lymphoma, yay!) but they only way to tell if I have or could have breast cancer caused by this is removing and testing all the material and they need to remove my lymph node, implants and all the tissue touching the implant and the muscle so basically it’s a mastectomy. I’m really depressed and scared. They said it’s not an easy surgery and it’s not gonna be pretty. It will be hard mentally they told me and I have to wait six months before they can do a fat transfer or any reconstruction. I need to order prosthetics so no one knows. But the only thing getting me through was the ring and I now I have no hope nothing to think about to bring me happiness. I lost my job in March 2020 and i’m auto immune compromised so I haven’t seen any one really. I’m sliding into a dark hole. Im really upset and wanted a bit of happiness and a win. I really thought this ring was meant for me and it gave me something to look forward to. I don’t understand why it didn’t work out. I feel like I keep just losing
Thank you so much, I have pictures under “I want this ring” in the antique section. Do you have been very kind and trying to help me find another ring but I really want that Tiffany one and I’m hoping it pops up again.I’m sorry @Smith3 …Please let us know when you go in for surgery so we can send you dust, pray, or both.
Do you have a photo of the ring? There are very savvy girls on here that may be able to find you something that looks similar to the ring. I’m not as good..but I will also help you look.
Hang in there…Big hugs..
Roof guy couldn't find anything wrong with the roof but all he did was inspect the tiles. I'm going to have him back to remove some of the tiles and check the underlayment. Hard for me to believe we don't have an issue due to so many leaks.
I found rotten wood and siding all over the house. My contractor, who I adore, is using downtime on his big projects to squeeze in time for my repairs. Since the exterior repairs are so extensive I decided to repaint this year rather than next year because he'll have his painter make time now.
The whiney is the cost of the painting due to paint shortages. The paint stores aren't giving out liquid samples try on the house due to the shortage. They didn't have the big peel and stick samples with my color and it will take too long for them to get here -- painting will probably start next week -- so they gave me 8 of the tiny ones to tape together. The painter told me he probably won't be able to get the high grade exterior paint I want and I'll have to settle for good rather than great paint. He's said he's paying 7% more for paint than 6 months ago -- over $85 a gallon. Cost to paint the exterior of my house is $9000
More ka-ching. Due to the break in at my neighbors 2 weeks ago -- an addict shattered her slider doors with one whack from an empty wine bottle and the cops chased him through my yard -- I've been researching ways to provide better protection. I was pondering getting metal shutters or security screens. DH is afraid either of those would make the house look funky. On Tuesday a window replacement guy is coming to give us an estimate on replacing windows with impact-proof glass like that used in hurricane zones. He said it's possible to replace the glass rather than replace windows which will be cheaper. We have 22 windows 3 of which are large picture type. It'll be a lot more expensive to go this route but if DH is willing to spend the money, I'm not going to argue. It is disappointing that we have to keep increasing security measures every year to compensate for rising crime in our area.
My neighbor hasn't been able to sleep since the break in. She's traumatized. The guy is already out on bail awaiting a trial date. I keep a baseball bat beside the bed. Our security cameras are great for showing us whose trying to get it, but even with the alarm, they haven't deterred people from getting in. Ugh.
And they cut down the old dead tree.
The tree was a favorite resting spot for hawks and ravens. My in-laws sat on that deck for hours every day, watching deer and other wildlife. MIL passed away in July. She would have been heartbroken.
