Madame Samm makes me laugh...really, she does.

I hurt my back pretty bad 10 days ago and have stared at this everyday 
since then...except when I was at the emergency room or doctor's office.
(If you don't know what it is, it's a ceiling fan that really
helps cool the room on hot summer days/nights--it's over my bed.)

I went to work today (dragged myself is a more accurate description) and
whined/cried a little a lot excessively about my discomfort. When I got home, 
I sent Madame Samm a thank you email for several things, including a 
wonderful little package of goodies she'd sent me. 

I think she picked up on my pity party today and sent me 
that adorable little girl that's up at the top of this post. She even
added the title to my post and put the picture in my post--what a woman!

Been sick...yep, I have! 
But, it made me smile and I bet it makes you smile, too.

P.S. If my email responses have been incoherent, confusing, or
ridiculous, please understand that some of my meds didn't do well
with me and made me sleepy, sick enough to want to throw-up, and
somewhat delusional (more than my usual delusional self.) 
I apologize if I made you think I was crazy (or crazier than normal.)

It's getting better...I'll be back making pom poms, etc. soon.


  1. Carol, I feel your pain! I hope your back is feeling better. Had that problem a few years back and couldn't even tie my shoes. Sending you well wishes for a speedy recovery! :)

  2. I hope you are feeling better soon. Nothing worst than a bad bad. I had back surgury the year I turned 30. I couldn't walk for six weeks, litery couldn't walk. Sleep on the couch for six weeks as we then had a water bed. I also had two little boys then to look after. Thank God my mother came to stay. The day I had surgury the pain was gone. Don't have to much trouble now, thank God. So just take it easy and let it heal.

  3. I have had back issues for years and I feel your pain! Take care and I hope you feel better soon! Madam Samm is such a wonderful friend!

  4. Oh ....nothing like a bad back Carol...hope you feel better. Madame Samm is quite a character; and a great friend to have....

  5. So sorry you are feeling bad, hope you will feel better soon.

  6. Oh no...a bad back is just not fair! Especially for you, 'cause you are such a bundle of energy! Have you come up with a plan to quilt that ceiling fan yet? Take care of yourself and don't overdo it...we want you well!

  7. Carol I am so sorry for your back problems I have had back problems for years and I know how debilitating they can be.I pray that you will be back to quilting soon . Blessings Sandra

  8. Oh Carol! I am so sorry for your misery!! I know it so well and wouldn't wish it on an enemy much less a dear lady such as yourself!! I wish you a speedy recovery Sweetie!!

  9. I am so-o-o sorry to hear about your back, Carol. I know how miserable you must feel. Here is wishing you a very speedy recovery. Big Hugs! Oh, but not too tightly!

  10. Yep, you can always count on a few smiles, giggles and belly laughs from Madame Samm.

    Back problems suck! Hope you feel better VERY soon.

  11. Oh My - Hang in there !!!

  12. Hi!!! Hope you feel better soon!!!

  13. Ohhh good grief...get over it will you..I think we need to go on a hike say Mount KiLL-mA- JAR- OH...
    and seriously of course, if I can manage....a sore back is a pain...not meant to be funny just came out that way...I gotta go...I have an early appointment...
    guess I will say a wee prayer for ya..how is that lol

  14. I've been there. Except I couldn't lay down. Sitting in a chair pushing down on the arms was the only position that gave me relief. Loved the meds cause they made me feel better but my family was really worried about me for awhile. Hope you are ready and able to shake your pom poms! Love that Madame Samm!

  15. Here's wishing you a speedy recovery and relief from your discomfort. As long as it doesn't hurt too much when Samm gets you laughing ;D
    Get better soon, Carol.


  16. Hope you will recover quickly.
    Take care.

  17. Even a cheerleader needs to be cheered up! Hope you continue to mend and get back (hee-hee) to normal.

  18. I'm sorry to hear you hurt your back, there's nothing that hurts like that. A prayer for a quick recovery was sent for you Carol ! I hope you didn't count the RPM's of that ceiling fan !

  19. Sorry to hear of your back woes, hope you are back to feeling yourself soon...careful with the meds and your sewing machine!

  20. I was reading this in BlogLovin and some blogs I cannot make comments while in BlogLovin. Don't know why? Hope you are better now Carol. Looking forward to seeing your pom-pom creation(s).

  21. Back problems are the worst. Glad you are getting around again. May it continue to improve.

  22. A bad back is really rotten. You poor thing. Take care.
