December Currently

I'm baaack! Took a little break from blogging, getting caught up in my latest saga--broken bone #2. Yep, I'm back-to-back on year #2 of a broken appendage. Ugh!  But, I'm here again, inspired by one on my favorite bloggers, Farley.  I'm linking up with her monthly Currently from Oh Boy, 4th Grade!


Listening:   I'm a total Real Housewives of ANYWHERE junkie.  My husband is a little concerned with  my addiction, thinking I envy the ladies on these shows.  But NO!  No envy here--just an escape from my day to day bump and grind, sitting here in my same ol chair until I can heal this leg of mine. Who's your favorite housewife from Beverly Hills?  Right now, I'm really relating to poor Yolanda.  She's struggling with Lupus and is housebound, so I relate to that in a big way. I also love her Dutch heritage and unpretentious style.  Here are my other favorites from the other locations:  New York:  Dorinda (such understated style),  New Jersey: Caroline (wise and sane), Atlanta:  Nene (she cracks me up!!), Orange County:  Shannon (but I want her to bail from that husband!)

Loving:   My husband and kids got me a treat...Philosophy hand cream.  It feels like such a treat to put on my tired hands. My hands are swollen and calloused from walking on crutches for 2 months, so it really was such a nice surprise.  Amazing Grace is the prettiest scent.

Thinking:  Always wondering how my class is doing while I'm off.  I miss them!

Wanting:  I am SO desperate to walk again.  It's absolutely maddening to be non-weight bearing for months.  If you've broken a leg/foot bone, you know exactly what I'm talking about.  It's funny, but when my family takes me out in my wheelchair, I get stopped constantly by well-wishers who have lived what I'm living.  They all want to share their stories of when they were in my situation.  It's a camaraderie type of thing.  I think I'll be like that once I'm healed.  I'll want to tell anyone with a broken leg that they will survive and be ok.

Needing:  A vanilla banana smoothie delivery.  My dad is bringing me one today--yay!

Real or Faux:  Real this year!  We are supporting our old Cub Scout Pack by getting a real tree from their fundraiser.  Should be pretty and smell good!  

Happiest of Holidays to all of you!

  3. Carol,

    I love Philosophy! We have the Candy Cane body wash and it's amazing! Best wishes with your recovery - I know what it's like to be off a leg/foot for an extended time and it's no fun.
