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

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

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
Friday, February 17, 2012      5 comments

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

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
Post Surgery
Wednesday, February 01, 2012      10 comments

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

Sad news first - my knee is not responding to the shot, and I'll be seeing the ortho dr again on Monday. I'm afraid all that's left is surgery, and I'm not looking forward to the recovery time. I very well may not be able to participate in the... Read more
