Medical Review Board

Wow where to start... Last week was just horrendous. Monday I was at work until after 10pm (arrived at 530 am) Tuesday I made it out of there by about 6pm (might have been 7). Wednesday I was notified that I was being sent to San Diego for a Medical Review board.....

Now I'm sure that everyone is thinking the same thing that I was.. How does that work?? I'm not sure either. I complained about my arm hurting again saw a couple of doctors and then was told they were starting paperwork. As much as I really really want to finish out my time in the navy (approx 9 more years). I can not continue to function every day in pain. This weekend was proof of just how many things I can't do with out help. Little things like sweeping, vacuuming, mopping, opening jars and containers.. all things I should be able to do with out help and I can't.

I haven't done any sewing since I have been home and think that I am going through withdraws. I wanted so badly to sew while the guys were watching the game today but that didn't happen either. I don't have to work tomorrow so maybe I can get something little sewn tomorrow. I have packed a few things so that I can move into town with Keith but that is about all I have done.

We have been talking about looking at a couple houses and maybe buying our own here soon but we'll see about that as well. Alot of things depend on if I stay in the navy or have to find another job. Not trying to be picky but if I get kicked out I have to find something that pays at lease $20+ an hour or I won't be able to make my bills...

Well the game is over.. I have to head out to my place here soon so that I can cuddle with my girls. Maybe get some more things packed tonight and maybe sew a few charm squares together.

I miss all my quilt friends dearly!!

Will it be hard to find another job with the economy??? I know here in CANADA many jobs have gone south to Mexico and many of the higher paying jobs have gone with them.

Heather! I had taken you off my list cuz you hadn't been blogging, but I see that you have done a few posts so I am adding you back. I had no idea about all of the issues that you were having with your arm. I hope that you are doing OK and that everything works out. I couldn't imagine not being able to quilt. I hope that the pain goes away! But it sounds like things are going wonderfully with Keith. Way to go!!

Keep in touch, girlie!!
