When you're CRAZY

It's been a long time since I've been here, with the exception of the blog I just posted... It was a foodie blog, this is just a catch up amongst friends... I was touched that Judy commented on my December post, that she was concerned, as I'd been gone
for so long! Thanks, Judy! I'm sure there are times that we all feel insignificant in this world, but for one person to reach out means so much...!
November arrived, and Crazycook was anticipating cooking a modest meal for two. How I thought that I could pull that one off, is a wonder, as we ended up a table for 9 (one guest bowed out, last minute.) Chatter at the table was that Christmas would be held
at another locale, but as the host had had a kitchen fire, it was a dubious thought, as to whether he could pull off a gathering... and I'm sorry, but I felt that I would be faced with pulling the table back out to full length at the last minute...
Now, this holiday season was probably the most challenging I've faced in some years... Allowing your shrink to mess with your "head meds" as the holidays approach is probably not that great of an idea! I do think that I've settled out now, but Nov/Dec were
rather rocky for me...
Just to mess things up a bit more, my primary care DR changed another med around the end of Nov! I had no reason to expect any changes in my "well being," or even my health, but as the New Year began, I became aware that I was suffering extreme back pain,
and began to question why...
I was sure that it wasn't the "head med" issues, and doubted that it was the other change, but just what could it be? Seems the muscle relaxer the doc gave me is working - could it be that simple of an issue? I guess so! Now, I'm wondering if I can find
a chiropractor as wonderful as my last... I'm a firm believer that being "snap-crackle-popped" from time to time is a good thing.
Amidst all of this chaos, I decided that IF I was to deal with Christmas guests, I must recover the dining room chairs... I'd wanted to do this since "grampa's" furniture arrived in Phoenix in 2007. I had to replace the fabric my step-mother covered them
with, an awful striped "herculon" fabric in the early 70's. From the day the set arrived, I vowed that I would recover the seats in a fabric more suited to the era of the furniture! I'm guessing that the furniture was purchased in the '40s, though I could
be off a tad. As there are no fabric stores nearby, I decided to order - afterall, I was ordering for Christmas! I wanted a tapestry type fabric that would suit not only my decor, but the furniture also. Well, I was going to add a photo of the old/new,
but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to do that now... I'll have to figure that out another time! Regardless, I had all six chairs done before Christmas, which came and went - but NOT here at Casa de Crazy! After the early meal, I was so happy
to return home...
So, there's the personal side of the past months. Before posting this, I posted another blog that was FOOD oriented... Read one, or both! Meanwhile...
Be Happy, Be Healthy, Be Crazy!
