Dear Arm...

I understand that you've been under some pretty severe conditions these past few weeks, but I really can't have you giving out on me right now. The shooting muscle pain that made me gasp and cradle my left arm is coming at a really inconvenient time as I have 85 more Daisy Blooms to make before I can call it a day. And then to make that shooting pain turn into a constant throb was cruel and down right rude. 

I've given you some ibuprofen and rubbed on some Theragesic, but I can only afford to take 7 more minutes of 'break time' before I have to get back to work. 

So please be patient with me, as I only need 3 more hours of your time. (and then I'll start gluing the 1000 clips that I still have left to do)

I'm thanking you in advance for your cooperation.

Sincerely,
-Rachel

I read this on my phone and then came to the computer to listen to what song you picked.... total let down!

Hope your arm gets better soon! Just remember my flying sweatshop idea... I think I might be on to something!

Well... just so you know, I tried to use 'I haven't got time for the pain' by Carly Simon but it wasn't available. Neither was 'Don't Give Up' by Peter Gabriel or 'You Better Be Good To Me' by Tina Turner.

So I tried... I really did. (LOL)

I like you...I do. I have these conversations all the time. Come on kagel muscle, don't give up on me now...5 more minutes to home...you can't pee in the car *again*. I know I put you thru so much anguish with 4 kids. I beg of you, I promise, no more kids... :) real conversation. I however have good news for you. For your arm...not my kagel muscle (know any good seat cleaners?) There is a cream called Soothe by M'lis. Feels kind of like icy hot, but it also has an anti-inflamatory in it. LOVE IT!! A bit pricy, at $16 for the bottle, but I promise you will love me and owe me a bag of peanut m&m's.

I think you need a little vacation - your poor arm!

Wish I knew how to make those bloom thingies. I'd come up and give you a break.

Hey Rachel, I've had chronic tendonitis for 7 years now and learned how to mangage it. I'll be praying for you during this time as I know about shooting pain. Try to pace yourself and listen to your arm. Don't forget to strech a lot. I hope it gets better!
