so.... here I sit

had surgery to release the nerve entrapment in my right hand carpal tunnel two days ago. I am playing hunt and peck with the computer and learning to get along with one hand. Next I will have the left and then I should be back to normal. It is much more difficult than I thought it would be.
Wouldn't you know it is just in time for me to feel crafty. i have managed to stamp two cards with my left hand (which is really hard for me). and looked at lots of ideas. Everyone had virtual stamp nights last night. The days after Christmas and before my surgery I cleaned up my computer/scrappy room. Got rid of tons of stuff (gave it to Katie or someone else) and organized so I can play again and actually find things i know i have.
The only other thing i have been doing is eating --- here is one of my new favorites

1 ½ cup olive or canola oil
1 pkg. Dry ranch dressing
1-2 tablespoons crushed red pepper
6 sleeves (or so) Zesta saltine crackers
place crackers -standing on skinny end- in a large container (the container should be just about as tall as the crackers are tall ). Mix all other ingredients together and drizzle mixture over crackers. Flip container upside down every 15 minutes for 8 hours to make sure all the crackers are soaking up the goodness. . Serve with your favorite dip, cheese or topping
