Where in the world is Shannon Hicks??

I have been kind of invisible except for the very occasional comment here or there, the last couple of months have just been crazy for me.  I bent some kind of crazy way my back resisted and it hurt for three or so weeks.  Then my eyes started to bother me.  I thought, "Allergies, no big deal!"  Used the drops and they felt somewhat better but they never really improved significantly.  Then a week ago, my right hip and leg started to hurt so much I couldn't sleep, probably from the aforementioned back aggravation.  My poor back has been injured so often, I should be an exhibit in some lab.

Soooooooo...  this past Saturday, my eye started to hurt, bad.  It felt like gravel at first, then like jagged glass, complete with searing pain from light, and I can't see through it when I do manage to pry it open.  The back improved some, but is still kind of miserable, especially if I move in a non-back-approved way.  And the eye is not feeling much better, all despite multiple visits to multiple doctors and multiple encouragements and eye drops.  I have an MRI next Wednesday for the back.  I also have a return to eye doctor central for the sliced/ulcerated cornea that they tell me is healing.  I am a miserable unit, and though I have done some beading, mostly by feel and using my one good eye, LOL, I can't even take pix right now because the light hurts too much. Anyway, I can't even see to edit them.

So, I'm kind of pouty right now, and I'm trying to tell myself that my upcoming 60th birthday is a good thing.  And I really do think it is, I have never had too many issues about age, stopped dying my hair because I'm into the grey, never wore much makeup.  I've always been kind of a little round hippie goddess, so I'm really hoping my 60's will get better.  I want to live every day, just as I always have, and though my body seems to be misbehaving, pool season is coming soon, and I am ready to get a bit more fit and a lot more sunny.  

Needless to say, pics to follow, really.  I promise, just can't promise when.  You can see my March 4 a month pictures, some pendants I finished and photographed in March, the last before the eye injury.
