Today's Score - Cancer: 1 Girl: 0

Well, crudnuts in a bucket. I'm flopped sideways on the couch wanting to paint furniture, but laying here seems all I can do right now. I'm facing a new phase. All the new doctors I've seen have been astonished (and more than a little disbelieving) when I tell them I've not had a blood transfusion. Not during my transplant, even. Yay me! But it looks like tomorrow I break my 4 year record and have to do the transfusion thing. I'm a little wigged out.


I'm sure folks who've been through it would pat me on the back and say, there there, but seriously. I am so extremely squeemish that I'm bug-eyed with fear. Phobias have no logic.


postscript: my neighbor just told me that people she's known felt on top of the world after a transfusion.


Okay then, with that, back to furniture.
One more time with feeling

I know, from reading other blogs, that I am not the only one to have second thoughts about a project. Sometimes the warm and fuzzy feeling just doesn't come. I've had projects go into the ugly phase, which they all do, but some never come out of it. There have been times when I've wanted to have "Revert to Saved" or "Undo" work in real life.

I've been working all week on redoing some pieces that I just didn't feel the love for.


BAA BAA BAD SHEEP
Remember my hopeless little table? I really didn't like that sheep. There's primitive - and then there's Paleolithic.


So I fixed it.



EVERY WHICH WAY BUT UP MIRROR 
We had a mirror in our entry way that I was tiring of quickly. Then I got my card catalog and there was no place for the mirror. It was in the garage a few months so I thought, oh, what the heck. And I grabbed the chalk paint.


I was going after what another blogger called that "Pulled from a french barn after the fire" look. But I keep thinking maybe this mirror needs to be simply distressed white. There might be another redo in the offing. 
 Hmmmm


or....


GLAMOUR GIRLS GONE BAD
My 'over the top' bench needed calmed down some.


I ended up calming it down a lot!



The redo of the century has yet to be done. Ive been procrastinating, but it might be the perfect project right now since I can sit and work. Plus, no heavy lifting. Cool!

  1. Oh so awful about phobias!! I have a few myself...and I've had quite a few transfusions, too. A little weird but quite doable. I'm off for an ultrasound tomorrow because of feeling nauseous...cancer really does suck! xo

  2. Okay, I've never had a blood transfusion so I can't pat you on the back and say "There, there". But I will send you a cyber-hug and say "Girl! You are going to feel like a million bucks after this. This is good stuff for you!"

    Can't wait to hear how good you feel. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers tomorrow!

  3. Many hugs, Sweetie. I'll be thinking about you tomorrow with fingers crossed. I'm hoping that the results will far out weigh the worry. A little bird told me that you have a new friend to keep you company. I'm off to check my email to see for myself. Take care and much love.
