Hi, Susan....oh, I like Susan I think...now. ;-) Yes, I get so involved with what I'm doing that I blank out the pain, but it got to the point that I couldn't 'not notice' it anymore. I think it's going to take a lot longer to heal than I thought.
I suppose the good thing about it is that I can get more work done at home.
I'm hoping to come back soon. I miss making puzzles for people like you. :-(
Poor you! Your hand must be really injured... to think you worked it so hard to make us puzzles! So sorry to hear that the healing is slow, I think those types of injuries do tend to take forever. I've had similar ones from repetitious movement (ripping out carpet nailing strips for example) and my arm wouldn't heal until I stopped using it completely, for a really long time. I hope you have other things you can do that you enjoy without moving your hand in a hurtful way... smiles and hugs are sent your way :)
Susan Robina, I remember both names equally as much and as often. I'm glad you solved a Pat puzzle. While I'm gone you might find more great super large puzzles too. :-)
It's going to take longer than I thought for my hand to heal. :-(
I just solved my first puzzle in two days... (I think it was a 'Pat' one?) I still came on every day and checked to see if there were any new Wendy specials though! I also realized that my habit of not signing out (because I'm too lazy to sign in every time I check on what's new etc.) makes it look like I'm solving puzzles day and night. Which would be lovely I must say, but isn't possible, so I sign out each time I leave now!
Sorry about the confusion with my name, I realized when I re-read it that I contradicted myself and still wasn't clear... Really, whichever is easiest for you to remember is fine....... I'll answer to either or both! Good healing with your hand :)
Susan Robina- you continue to confuse me!
You GUESS Susan is best, but at the same time you say, "I LOVED being called Robina."
You're driving me crazy! LOL
Hmmm, I'm still not sure.
Well, for awhile I'll call you Susan, and then if you change your mind and decide that you would rather be called Robina, then I'll call you that. I just changed my mind. If I can remember, then for now on I'll call you Susan Robina. If you decide you don't like it, just let me know.
I know you asked about my hand in a heartfelt way....and I appreciated it. Thank you. As of right now, my hand is still aching so I'm going to give it a rest for another day...at least. :-(
Hopefully, I'll be creating and posting new puzzles soon. :-)
LOL, okay, I guess Susan is best. When I wrote to you about your hand, it was very heartfelt, and since Robina isn't the name anyone uses in 'real' life, I didn't feel I was being genuine without signing my actual first name as well as Robina. I loved being called Robina, as my Great-Grandmother was a very special lady, but really, I'm just plain old Susan :-)
I'm so glad your hand is useable for regular things. I was envisioning you with your hand all wrapped up, resting on a chaise lounge, being waited on like a princess! (Okay, I made the last part up, but it sounds really great doesn't it?!)
Thanks for taking the time to let me know how you are, and caring about what name I really use, that's so nice. :-)
And Susan, I know I had asked you before which you prefer between Susan and Robina...and you had said that it didn't matter....but I want an absolute answer. ;-)
Hi Robina....and now I'm a little confused. Would you rather be called Robina or Susan? I can still type without much pain so I can still at least talk. And don't worry about me! I'll be fine. I think that giving my hand a rest is just what it needs...but it's going to take a bit longer than I thought for it to heal.
And my hand is absolutely fine when I'm not creating puzzles. It's the dragging motion that I use when I create that's so painful. So I don't need any help around the house or anything like that. Unfortunately what I like doing most of all, creating, is what's causing me the problems. My hand will get better. I promise. :-)
I send you lots of love and hugs right back. :-)
Oh Wendy, I feel so bad for you. Never mind me, you're the one with terrible pain. It is so sad, because you get so much enjoyment out of what you do, and you seem to really love interacting with your solvers. I know I speak for everyone when I say that you will be very missed. I wondered if you were okay, as I saw you hadn't posted any big ones, I forgot to see if you were still doing smaller ones, sorry :( How awful that your hand is so painful, I hope your family is able to help you out lots. I'm kind of in shock, I can't imagine how hard it must be for you. Thinking of you, and sending you lots of love and hugs, Susan Robina xo
Robina, thank you so much. I have some sort of bad news for you...and I hate this bad news because in the short time I've known you, you're still one of my favorite people on Jigidi. My hand has been hurting so much that I'm only going to post a few puzzles occasionally for now on. I had to stop solving puzzles because of my stupid hand, but now creating puzzles has pretty much finished off my hand. I gave it two days rest and it's still screaming in pain, so I think it's time to slow down and/or stop. If I had my way though, I'd make you lots of puzzles for every day. :-)
Very pretty, looks like colour frosted windowswith clear panes in between, which in turn look into other colour frosted windows. As Pat says, if this is a rush job, hope you have more of them! Lots of fun and quite a challenge too :)
Pat, have a fun-filled day. What else can I say? ;-)
Yes, I made it for my reply to this puzzle! Sent you an email earlier, too--see you--off to christening!
Pat, did you JUST now make that your avatar? I can't believe I missed it otherwise. Anyway, you're both gorgeous! And I can't believe you've survived the shower. ;-)
If this is a rush job, I hope you're always pressed for time!
(My new photo--Jessica with me at the shower).
It's OK, Pat. It was a rush job...but at least I think I kind of captured fall colors in it.
Ooooooh, cool! A definite must-do--and this would indeed make a beautiful blanket!
