Just finished this. If I called my last one "Goodnight Irene" what do I call this? "A Fine Mess"?

Setbacks, and setting myself straight.

So what do you do when you are bursting with inspiration and ideas, but lacking in the ability to carry them out? I recently had to undergo some surgery, and my recovery is not quite what I had hoped for. I thought I'd be using all my down time preparing for an upcoming exhibit, imagining myself recovering in my studio, as I have done before. I wasn't counting on feeling to weak to get anything done. How dare I get an infection? I have way to much to do to feel like this, I do not like these limitations! Grrr
  It makes me appreciate people who have to battle these kinds of limitations every day of their lives. Makes me a little ashamed of indulging in self pity. A friend of mine who lives with MS said "welcome to my world", boy, that put it into perspective. So I might be down for a few months, but I'm certainly not out, I will get better. Others are not so lucky.
 And lucky I am, my kids, my husband, friends, are all helping out, picking up slack. It really boils down to making peace with a temporary setback, and learning some patience.
