Pay It Forward is Complete!

I finished my last Pay It Forward and it has been received! This was for Lindsay and she lucked out and got three things by accident. I initially made this cool crochet rope cowl for her in this rich purple suede type yarn.

Then I put it to the side and eventually made a slouchy hat as well.  Here's the top view.

And a side view.
Please ignore my arm! So then I went back to get the cowl...and couldn't find it. I looked everywhere. Well, I thought I did. I finally got mad and made her a scarf so she'd have two things.
Then, of course, it goes without saying that I located the first cowl! So I decided that since it was meant for her anyway, I would send them all along! I got an email from her last night saying she had received them all and they seem to be a hit so I guess my first Pay it Forward went okay!

I also had to do some major weeding out of commercial sites on my Facebook account the other day. I was starting to get overwhelmed with the fact that there were more commercial sites than people showing up in my news feed. And you know what? It makes you feel really guilty to "unlike" someone! Especially if you don't REALLY dislike them. It's just that their site is not something I follow on a regular basis. At least it made me feel that way. I didn't realize just how many I had liked (most to register for various contests) until I started deleting those that I don't really follow. I'm sure I deleted upwards of 30 websites. Amazing. And it made an enormous difference to my news feed. I can read comments from my friends and family now!

Another BIG dislike for me is that I now have an appointment with the orthopedic surgeon on Wednesday. I put it off for at least 3-4 months now but I have done nothing but aggravate my shoulder pain so it is time to bite the bullet. I just hope surgery is not involved. I'm not looking forward to this at all.

It is okay to "dislike" long as you take care of yourself. You're the only you you get.

Very understandable, the not wanting the surgery that is. I hope that it is something that will just heal with time and perhaps OT.
