The great news I received is that my dear daughter has been given a fantastic promotion at work. She is now the Acting Director of Serials at the university library where she works. She gets a super raise along with the title. Hurray for Kristen! She called with the news this morning and I pictured her as the new "director of cereals". LOL!
The not-so-good news is that I have been having tingling and numbness in my left hand, and today the doctor confirmed one of my worst fears: he thinks it is probably carpal tunnel syndrome. This could have serious economic impact for me, since I am at the computer all day long at work. And of course, blogging doesn't help. Fortunately, I sought treatment right away. He is starting me off with a splint, and hopefully that will do the trick.
I had so many October and Halloween posts planned that I was going to make you cry for a ban on orange and black and beg for mercy for me to stop! Halloween is my favorite holiday other than Christmas and I go all out for it.
I plan to write one more post tonight and then make my rounds of your blogs. After that, I plan to take a week-long break from blogging and see if that helps my hand. Other than that, I don't know what else to do, except do posts with a lot of pictures and not many words. Of course, I'll still be reading your blogs - like downloading photos, that only needs a click with my good right hand. Please understand when I do not comment.
