The Dreaded Shot
Thank you all for your patience with me over the past 4-1/2 months, about my knee. I got my gel shot this morning. I hate needles, and it was into my knee, so I was dreading it. Besides that, it's a gel, not a liquid, so I was fearful.

Little League and This and That
Today is opening day (and team picture day) for little league. The ball complex was every bit as crazy busy/crowded as I figured it would be. DH and I didn't go for the opening ceremonies, but we got there before Josh's team started playing. ... Read more
Skein, Hanks of yarn
Someone asked me what a 'hank' is, and when I tried to describe it, words failed me. Since a picture is worth 1,000 words - here's the picture. (on Spark Page)
School today (need to wash my hair posthaste). No school tomorrow because th... Read more
Warning! Whine, whine, whine
Warning. This blog starts with a lot of whining....
At my annual physical a couple of months ago, I was told I'd lost another 1/2 inch in height....that makes a total of 1 inch over three years. I finally got my DH to measure me today, an... Read more
Ok, so the ugly sweater is finished. I don't like wearing yellow - it's fine on others, but I don't like it on me. That begs the question of WHY DID I BUY SOME yellow yarn?!! I don't have an answer for that.
I'm on to crocheting Amigu... Read more
Sat, 31 Mar (already!)
30-something years ago, after the birth of my youngest, the stitches rotten far too soon and I started hemmoraging. I'd lost so much blood that I was given 2 units 'push' - and let me tell you, when the blood hasn't had proper time to heat up ... Read more

For those of you who have followed my knee saga, it IS getting SLIGHTLY better, SLOWLY. sigh. I'm just not very patient; but I did pull out my resistance bands and am using them to exercise my leg. Also, following dr's recomme... Read more
Winter, knee, LPN state boards
I live in PA, where several groundhogs determine whether or not we'll get six more weeks of winter. Ok, they don't really, but they do play an important part of 2 February. The temp has been up and down all winter; overall it's be... Read more
We did it! We traded in the convertible and brought home a Mazda3 for our running-around car. Little Blue has until the end of the month when her state inspection runs out.
My knee is healing, I think. I say "I think" because while I can... Read more
Little Blue Died - Sort of
Way back when, we bought a 1990 Grand Am - she had to be named Little Blue - no other name would do. Blue had 7 miles on her when we got her, and we put 4 of those miles on test driving, so yeah, she was brand new.
Blue had seen us to and ... Read more
Wed night 2/8/12
I went back to the dr today to have the stitches removed. He showed me pictures he took of the inside of my knee - interesting. I found out that arthritis looks like you took a cotton ball and pulled and pulled it out until it was a fringe. I... Read more
Just a short note: I came through arthroscopic knee surgery (yesterday) just fine. The dr cut out the flap of my torn meniscus (larger than he first thought it would be), and scrapped out some arthritic stuff. I'm following his orders, and do... Read more
God is GOOD.
I want you to know that right off the bat.
My Mom started having mini strokes about 4-5 years ago, which, of course, affected her mind. She went to live with my older sister, then into assisted living. Mom continued having mini stroke... Read more
