Estas Viernes Gracias a Dio!

It is Cinco de Mayo... thus the heading in spanish, which translates to 'Thank God it's Friday'!!

We are hoping to go out tomorrow night to a local mexican restaurant to celebrate the little known holiday of Seis de Mayo.  LoL  

Can't go tonight due to the kids schedules.

Moving on to the State of the Princess....

Unfortunately, my entire left side is a disaster.  My left knee feels thick and swollen and sore.  Same with my left elbow and left wrist and left hand. 

I took 1/2 a vicodin, which I hate to do during the day, but it is a must today.

I didn't try my new hair products... just scooped it up into a pony tail and put on ultra comfy capri pants and a t-shirt.  If Fuzzy didn't have a friend coming over, I probably would have stayed in my jammies.  Again.

Enough of that.  Doesn't do any good complaining.

Remember my rant the other day?  I should explain. 

You may or may not remember that I have begun making beaded jewelry by hand as a form of therapy for my hands.  I have enjoyed doing it a lot and have so many items that I was going to sell them at a street fair later this month that is in my town each year. 

However, money is a bit tight right now and it costs a chunk of money to get the booth and then I would need to spend money on more things needed to display, sell and package my stuff... money that we can't spare right now. 

Sure, I probably could have forced the issue, but that would have been selfish.  I agreed with my hubby that I would have to skip this years fair and find an alternate means to sell my wares.

Somewhere after that, the rant popped out.  It is hard to let go of a dream that was close enough to touch, but it was the right thing to do.

The good news is that I do have an alternate outlet in the works, and will give you all the details on that very soon.

Please remember me in a quick prayer that my flare will abate soon so I can enjoy this beautiful spring weather that we are having.

Baseball tomorrow morning, 9am.  I will be going.  Come hell or high water.  I will make it.  I do not want to let Fuzzy down again.  I can always rest after.

be well,
Dawn

Hope you feel better soon and enjoy Cinco de Mayo.

I'm going to celebrate Cinco de Mayo by toasting his relative, Jose Cuervo:)
Sorry you haven't been feeling well and that you suffered a disappointment. You will be better prepared next year or can look for a less expensive medium.
I hope you feel well very soon:)

Dawn dear, I'm praying you'll have fun celebrating!
And if you want one more source to post for sales that might bear a bit of fruit, email me.  One of my internet lupus boards has a section for posting items to sell.  Don't know how effective it is dear but will be glad to share a link.
loving you
karyl
