This has actually been kind of a bad week - but I promise...I
am trying to stay upbeat & relatively
creative. I'm a generally optomistic person.
On Sunday The Lenster and my daughter Jennifer went on a
beautiful motorcycle ride with one of the groups that they belong to called
"Hillel's Angels". Thirteen bikes rode from central New Jersey up to
Poughkeepsie New York for the gorgeous scenery. One of the members, who was the
lead rider, suffered a fatal heart attack while on his bike. Everyone has been
devastated over the loss of this wonderful husband, father and friend &
dynamic community leader. 53 years old. It blows your mind. We thank God that no one else was hurt and no cars were on the road. Two doctors were part of the ride and responded in seconds. Sometimes its just in God's hands.
Next day.... the Lenster had the bad fortune to be in his car, which was next to a car that got struck by an oncoming out of control, speeding driver (young kid). The speeder crashed into and overturned an SUV which then went into someone else who then went into him. Lenny is absolutely fine - (again...thank you God) - but his car just got a $3100 facelift. The lady in the SUV went off to the hospital. The kid went off to jail!
Wednesday I had the B-I-G dreaded gum surgery...can't even pronounce it let alone have one....apicoectomy (a root-end resection). It is used to relieve inflammation or infection in the bony area around the end of your tooth. Now wasn't this is something you all were drying to know....?
It involved my two upper front teeth which were injured 20 years ago when I fell off of a bicycle and are just now giving me all this trouble. Let me clue you in...I look like I've had 400 shots of lip filler in my upper lip area (yes, i did the "lots of ice" 20 min on/20 min off thing) and the bottom of my nose is swollen like Porky Pig. Then he told me I had to sleep sort of sitting up....Oh really ??!! Well...that was a sight.
Today I was supposed to shoot a little video for Ranger at their office.....NOT HAPPENING ! I have Angelina Jolie lips and a pig nose.
On the bright side....I have a wonderful website to share
with you. A project I think everyone would love to be involved in.. The Butterfly
and....I did find something hugely fun to do with an old pair of stilettos that I found years ago at a Salvation Army store. I used my TUTU Beadazzles, Copper Zamora Beadz, and some small holeless gold glass beads I found lying around the craft room. Just glued them all down with a heavy duty glue & filled in any empty areas by squeezing in some Tiara Glitz Stickles,
I think I'll wear them to the dentist when they take out my stitches !
