This has been so long in posting! A week ago I spilled a glass of pepsi on my laptop keyboard!!!!!EEK i tried to drain the pop off right away and then dried it with a blow dryer.

BUT you guessed it--the STICKY mess that has ensued. I have cleaned and cleaned around the keys and they are much better but it is very hard to type on them still. I called the Geek Squad" and am very lucky to not have 'fried' my entire computer. I have to order a new keyboard and 'well' that it sits in. I will ask for the old keyboard and then i can craft with the old keys!!

I am unable to make it downstairs to use the main computer because my knees are too swollen/painful and slidng up and down the stairs takes the use of my wrists/hands that are in the same condition lately.

They are much better than they have been and am finally getting caught up with all my swaps. Everything we make of course uses our hands and dexterity!!

For those of you who have been so supportive with prayers and kind thoughts and just your support for my transition to the walker THANK YOU!! I have been out to the mall with john, the fabric store, the grocery store, michaels, etc. It is much easier this week. A dear friend said "No one cares about the walker...you notice it more than anyone else...we just want you to be safe and not hurt from falling," Thank you Shannon.

She is right. I just had to grieve the status change and get on with life!

What a great bunch of questions. They certainly let a swap partner know you well.

Your poor keyboard, I'm glad you are getting a new one and also glad you are finally feeling a bit better.

Hugs Karen
