This is not the post I intended to be writing this week.
I was hoping I would be updating you with pictures of my incredible pool bath progress and that you wouldn’t have really noticed that I didn’t provide an update last week.
Unfortunately, that’s not what I’m sharing today and I’m in a bit of a funk about it.
Remember when I mentioned that I couldn’t paint the room right away because I pulled a muscle in my forearm doing yard work so it needed to rest a few days? Well, it’s going to need to rest a lot longer than a few days. Two-weeks post injury not only did I still have pain, but my pinky and ring fingers were going numb so I went to the doctor.
He told me I have “tennis elbow” and also the beginnings of carpal tunnel syndrome in my wrist. As a result, I’m wearing a cute compression wrap around my arm and I cannot not use my arm much for 2 more weeks! The worst part? I’m right-handed and of course, this is my right arm I’m talking about. Even using the computer mouse makes my hand go a little numb so I can’t even do much on the computer. (I’m cheating a little today.)
So, friends, I am not going to get my bathroom done in the the time frame of the 6-week One Room Challenge.
I am so, so disappointed! I really wanted to get this bathroom completed.
I know that it will just get pushed back a few weeks, but I was getting really excited. I purchased most everything I needed to complete the project and I was raring to go!
The bright side is that despite the fact that mulching and planting got me in to this predicament, I am happy that my flowers are looking really nice right now.
So, instead of the ORC room update and progress, I’m going to share a few pictures of some blooms in my yard and flower pots. They definitely brighten my day:
Despite the fact that DIY projects and computer work are a little tough or not possible at the moment, I am still posting regularly on Instagram. I hope you’ll join me there!
When I’m able, I will tackle that bathroom like a boss!
