A New Year, A New Me!

I haven't blogged since November! That's a record for me I must say. Why? I'm really not sure.  But my oldest daughter Jordan and I were talking about it the other day and we both realized that we missed it.  It's been my journal for years and years.  My recipe book, my photo album, my way of recording my personal journey in my life.  Add a little art and travel and family doings into that mix and it's simply my life!

So. what up?
Well.  After we got back from Napa (my last blog) W suggested that maybe it would be a good time to get my ole bum shoulder fixed before the new year.  Insurance was changing, and well, you know the deal.  I've played tennis for almost 50 years now and the ole shoulder had run it's course.  So, what I thought was a simple shaving down a few bone spurs and repairing a simple tear, turned into a rotator cuff tear.  Meaning, what I thought was going to be a pretty simple surgery, turned out to be....omg...the most painful thing EVER.  I am 16 days out and can lift my arm almost to my chest which is really pretty good considering.
Rotator cuff surgery aint for sissys y'all.

Being in a sling for two weeks and watching House of Cards 3 x over (the entire series), Scandal 2 times over, and um,,,,,the x rated highly intense Orange is the New Black (I could only watch that whole series once).
I'm a SOOOOO ready to get back in the saddle.
But, gotta take it slow.
I will be very happy to start exercising again since I'm pretty sure lying on my butt for two weeks has put a good 20 lbs. on me.
And, my hope is now I will be able to do the one thing I have consistently LOVED to do for 50 years of my life.  Play tennis again.  
Back to the new year.
I FINALLY finished my new website!!!
After a mere TEN hours of wanting to throw my computer at the wall it's done. And I ain't changing a thing.
I'm too cheap to pay someone to do it, and really I like a good challenge.
To say I needed a Xanax drip while I was developing it is an understatement.
go here if you want to see it, (cause really, I'm pretty proud of it!)

Christmas this year was just so much fun.  We all got together in typical Boggs' fashion and I must say all the gifts were just spot on.  I don't even think anyone took anything back. Oh wait.  I got W a ginormous piece of luggage which we all decided really wasn't for him. But other than that, we did pretty good!
One thing I was particularly proud of was the selling group that I admin on FB.  It is called Buckhead Trading Group.  Through an online auction we were able to raise over 18,000.00 for a small Atlanta charity called Giving Grace.  Giving Grace helps single moms and homeless with immediate needs.  Organizing this was one of the most proud things I think I have ever done.  So, you are going to be hearing more from me in the future.  I'm over being burned out by blogging and am ready to move forward with new stuff, new art, new pics, new travels, new me!!!!

Have a wonderful day y'all!
