V-Day, horses and carpal tunnel vision

I know.  The title got you.  Well, let me explain.  Last night I spent another sleepless night with the numbing in my right (the painting one) hand from carpal tunnel.  I had surgery a few years back for my left hand…yes I am ambidextrous. And now the right one is getting worse.  So as a result of carpal tunnel, I got little sleep and tonight my son comes for a 2-week visit from the wilds of North Dakota.

I don’t survive well on four hours of sleep so I will be a zombie on today of all days.  You see 13 year’s ago my husband proposed sappily on V-Day. 

My to-do list is huge.  I must finish a painting of a horse today.  Fortunately horses are my forte, so my hubby says, so I may get it done.  After which I must get the laundry done, go to the post office and the bank and, well the list is much longer but I won’t bore you.

I just want to say…Happy V-Day!

If you would like to print out the Valentine from my original painting below, feel free...just click on the image.  :-)

ouch. I had carpal tunnel while I was pregnant but thankfully it went away after I had my son. I feel for you. I hope you had a productive day. Your horse and rose are both gorgeous!

Beautiful Horse! Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Anniversary! I well understand carpal tunnel. Mine has been flaring up again and as you well know, sleep is difficult. Hopefully both ours will calm down~

Beautiful horse and rose!

I'm sorry to hear you are losing sleep due to carpal tunnel syndrome. Hope it improves... my chiropractor says he wishes all suffers came to see him before surgery - he could help. (Not sure what he meant but since I don't suffer from it I haven't found out how...)

Happy Valentine's Day!
