I am amazed that it's been 10 days since I've posted. It's been quite a week and then some. Last Thursday I went to the doctor to have wax removed from my ear because I couldn't hear well. They removed it but my hearing didn't return. I returned on Friday and they said I had an ear and sinus infection and started antibiotics. It's been a week and I'm certainly not any better and maybe worse. So off to the doctor I went again tonight. They can't see my ear drum because of the infection so I need to see an ENT next week and in the meantime I'm on more powerful antibiotics along with 3 other meds. Not my idea of fun. And the reason for the ENT is that he was afraid there was a hole in my eardrum but he couldn't be sure. So for the last week I've had no motivation and just sat when I got home from work. And I've been going to bed about 9pm; several hours earlier than usual.

So that's my problem for the week. Hope your week has been lots better and I'm hoping this medication kicks in soon so I can get back to something creative. Have a wonderful weekend!

So sorry to hear this, Donna. Ear infections are terrible - painful and annoying. I do hope these new meds knock out the problem. Yes, keep getting as much sleep as possible - our bodies heal so much better with sleep.

That does nor sound too nice at all! I hope you respond quickly to the antibiotic! And, hoping your hearing returns soon too! Hope you are not having too much pain......

Hi Donna, so sorry about the ear infection, do hope it clears up soon. Hopefully the doctors antibiotics kick in pretty soon! Get lots of rest that should help! Thinking about you!

Oh, Donna -- I hope your ear clears up soon and your hearing is restored. Antibiotics should do the trick, but then you'll have to contend with the after-effects of them ... so be sure to eat plenty of pro-biotics (e.g., yogurt) so your gut's good health is restored.

I know a bad ear has put you in a grumpy, "I don't want to craft" mood, but I have some GOOD NEWS that might break the doldrums: you WON my blog candy I featured during my "20 Card Challenge" on the CardMonkey's Paper Jungle!!

I'll be happy to send out your Close To My Heart Sparkle & Shine paper pack to you, along with the map I used to cut the three sheets of designer paper to make my 20 cards. That ought to help get those Christmas cards done quickly! Please send me your mailing address via my e-mail address:, and I'll get that right out to you.

Thank you again for playing along!
