Post Surgery Update and NEW Challenge Idea

Hi Everyone!  FIRST I want to wish everyone a very Happy Memorial Day Weekend - and to I want to say THANK YOU to all those who have served and sacrificed for our GREAT Country!

Well, it seems like I am back among the "Scrappy!" At least for a few minutes today anyway!! LOL!


My foot surgery last Friday went well - but the healing process seems like it will be a long one. Anyone who is considering Bunion Surgery - (the name sounds nastier than the actual surgery,) I think it is more of an inconvenience than anything else.  Seriously, I really do not have much pain at all. So I say GO FOR IT!  It will be worth it in the "long run" - (pun intended! LOL!)

Little pain is a VERY good thing, as it seems that Pain Medication and I do not get along!  I either get very very itchy, or nauseous!! So from day 2 on, I've just been taking Tylenol, and it is going okay. I would describe it as more of a discomfort.  All in all, I am sure it will certainly be worth it when I am hiking up a volcano in Hawaii on our 30th Anniversary Disney Cruise in October!!

It looks like I will be out of work for @ 3 weeks - but I am fortunate to work for a GREAT Company ( in the "real" non-scrappy world) and I am able to check work emails on my phone, and access my work computer from home, so I've been able to keep up with things there.

I haven't been able to get any scrapping in, and have to limit my computer and "foot down" time to a few minutes a day.  My foot, and I feel better if I am sitting in a reclining chair with my foot raised on a pillow, and have ice on my ankle, while I am watching Home Improvement shows, and cooking shows on the Food Network. (INSERT GIANT THANK YOU HERE to my WONDERFUL HUSBAND and AWESOME SONS who are taking care of me and everything else in the house!)


Back to my TV viewing - CHOPPED is my ALL TIME FAVORITE cooking show!  Have you seen it????   It is a challenge show where 4 chefs are given a basket with 4 crazy ingredients and they have to make something AMAZING with them.  Their creations are then judged by Celebrity TV Chef judges, and one of the contestants is eliminated after each round, and Appetizer, Entree and Dessert.  The winner gets the Title of CHOPPED CHAMPION and a $10,000 cash prize! 

Now my "scrappy" brain started thinking - 
and I am HAPPY to ANNOUNCE that
coming to my FAVORITE LOCAL SCRAPBOOK STORE 
this AUGUST 2012 -
we will have our FIRST "CROPPED!" Challenge Night!!  

I've discussed some of the details with Stephanie from THE DOO, and we are working on finalizing everything. We will be setting a date over the next few weeks - so be sure to sign up for email notifications to my Blog - or FOLLOW/LIKE the Scrap-a-Doodle Doo Facebook Page or THE DOO BLOG, so you can join in on the FUN!!  ( We even hope to make a video of it to share with everyone over the web!!)

Contestant space will be limited and there will be a PRIZE involved too!  (sorry, it won't be $10,000 -as this isn't a real TV Show - YET - but I am open to any offers to take it to the Networks - so if you have any connections - feel free to have them contact me - LOL!!)

Well, my foot is saying "please go back to the recliner!" so I have to listen!

Wishing you all a wonderful long weekend - I hope you have a chance to "get your "Scrap" on!!
