Have a good vacation, Wendy.
I'd like to ask for a prayer for me and my family. Today is 3 years since Erika (DD) died. It's a rough day.
Happy Easter, everyone.

Blessed be.
Becky

Hey everyone!! I'm Sally, I just started spark people yesterday and I'm so excited. I'm 23 years old,married, and I have a beautiful two year old son. I joined the "Knitters" because I'm very domestic and even though I never took to knitting, I love to do needle work. I'm really hoping to lose weight and to gain friends. Thank you for letting me join your group. God Bless

Will do. Right now I'm just trying to stay awake. Work last night was crazy--5 patients, and I had a student as well, who's very good but they still take extra time. Especially when one of the patients was a 92 yo man who the surgeons were deathly afraid he'd pull his catheter out. If he did it would mean right back into surgery and they didn't want that to happen..He was fine all my shift then was trying to climb out of bed when I was leaving...

Blessed be.

Hi Becky, I have that afghan patter too. I did start it once but I didn't like the two yarn combos that I picked so I frogged it and have not started it again. Maybe I will put that on my fall project list!
I finished a fancy scarf for my sister last night and started another for a friend.

Did a few rows on my basketweave afghan last night, Wendy, I think you'd like the pattern once you saw it (it's the one that you sent me from Michael's). Got some more of my save the date cards ready last night, have to go get more cards and stamps this morning so I can get them out. Last night Diego (the dog) picked up his water dish and brought it over to me. Do you think that was a hint? I had to laugh, never had him do that before. Time to change my Happy Bunny calendar--Erika introduced me to the cartoon and it was so like her that I was hooked-- like the one that says "cute but psycho"..Better get started on my day, have a lot to do before I go to work this afternoon. Everyone have a good day.

Blessed be.

Good walk Deb!! wooohooo .. I love crocuses .. they are my all-time favorite spring flower .. and I don't have any in my beds! Need to get some bulbs in the fall.

I mowed the front lawn tonight, with help from my youngest dd. Walked the dogs .. my minimum 30 min of cardio done .. really didn't feel like doing it, but I did it anyway! Now I'm heading to bed!

Sunshine and warmth are coming to NW -- walked over 4.15 miles at work and in the yard today/tonite. The crocuses look great, and I finished a feather & fan washcloth-- on to the next.

Well, I took the dog for a 15 minute walk after I got home from work today. Or I should say he took me! My foot is sore but I'll survive. I figured I'd better do it right away otherwise I'd never get up again after I sat down!

Blessed be.

I was just wondering if anyone has ever ordered yarns from the site www.knitpicks.com? I've order fabrics from their sister site connectingthreads.com, but haven't ordered anything from knitpicks. They do have some gorgeous-looking yarns though.

Cool! Wendy, where are you going for vacation? I'm taking a few days the middle of April and flying out to Colorado to see my grandma on her 95th birthday. I'd better get there...I'm the oldest grandkid! I haven't been out there in 15 years, so it will be interesting to see how things have changed (although I've seen my grandma several times in those years). I'll just have to make sure I get a jump on the schoolwork that's due when I get back.

Blessed be.

Good morning everyone. Hope everyone has a good day. Need to get my paper written and then want to do a little more knitting. Didn't do much yesterday except try to do some housecleaning. First time John has stayed over here in a long time. He and cats don't get along, and the cats love to hide under my bed. Needless to say there was a lot of cat hair in there.. Now I just have to clean off my dining room table which is where everything in my bedroom went!

Blessed be.

HI Gang - Just zipping thru to say HI.
I went to a baby shower this afternoon and I ate waaaay too much. You should have seen the size of the piece of cake I ate - GEESH.
It served me right that I felt sick for several hours.

I really need to get a grip on my eating.....

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Tell your dd I empathize .. nothing worse than pain in your mouth! lol ramble on my friend .. ramble on! It's all good!

If he has a learning disability can your friend get help with the exam? My gf has dyslexia (so does my oldest!) and she got her special ed certification and her degree .. but had to have all the tests read to her. Don't know if that would work for him.

My dh and daughters were watching movies tonight... and Simpson's episodes! lol

Hi Varina,
Turns out the procedure that was so great when Jo got it done is obsolete now. They had scraped off some of the enamel to make the coating stick, and she has a cavity under the coating which is killing her right now.
I ran into a friend of mine from nursing school. Such a bright guy, but has a learning disability and has one more chance to pass his radiology tech boards. I almost felt bad telling him I was working on my master's degree in nursing.
My right big toe has an ingrown toenail.
I'm watching 'Til Debt do us part' on CNBC right now. At least I'm not the worst off person I know!
The dog is sniffing my butt... stupid dog...
It just dawned on me that maybe this should be a blog. Maybe not. I'm glad that I have people I can ramble to. Thank you all.

Furball, that's really great that the proceeds went to charity. So nice to hear of kids doing stuff for others like that.

Becky, I'm glad you survived lunch! My youngest (10)had to have 2 root canals to her permanent teeth this year. She was playing with a friend a couple of years ago and injured them. They just kept getting worse and the endodontist said the only thing that would help was a root canal! Hope you dd can get that taken care of, and without a huge bill (that would be great!).

Good morning, everyone, I survived work yesterday, went and had a great supper at John's (only had a light lunch cause I knew he'd feed me good!), finished up a couple of things from my internship class, went to bed and got woke up at 1 a.m. when Johanna (DD) called and wanted some pain killers. Her teeth have been horrible ever since she knocked them back up into her gums when she was 9 months old (she fell down the stairs), and from what I gathered a piece came out of one of her teeth and was hurting. She's going to call the U of MN dental school to see if she can get some relatively cheap care. There again, no insurance....
Enough rambling, I hope everyone has a great day. It's cold and gray here, but it's the weekend!

went to a dance production put on by my niece's dancing school. All ticket money went to "Hugs for healing". They give starter packages to kids starting treatment at Dana Farber. It was a great show and a great cause!

It's cold here as well, I walked the dogs 2x, only 10 min each time. I was just feeling a bit tired, so slacked off a bit. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be back on track! Hope to hit the Y ..

My sister came through her surgery with flying colors, is up and eating, will go home tomorrow, MDs think that her lymph nodes look good so now we just wait for the final reports. Thanks everyone for your good thoughts and your prayers.

Hi all,
I finished my basket weave dish rag last night. It is bright lime green and should perk up the kitchen a bit. I usually just knit the plain knitting dish rags that start in a corner - love to work with variegated yarn. Gotta keep those fingers busy - ha ha.

Hello
I hope your foot doesn't hurt today Becky, after standing and walking on it yesterday.
Rain is moving in again... I feel like we are lucky to get one or two nice days before it rains again.
Have a good Thursday! I can't wait for the weekend!

Was my left foot that was broken.
Am on call today from work, getting back into my schedule sure didn't last long!
I suppose I should put this extra day off to good use and start getting back on track. I've put a few pounds back on.

Becky, sorry about the work situation. How is the foot? My dd (the one with the broken 1st Metatarsal R wanted to know which foot of yours is broken?

OK, gang, I'm off restrictions at work now. The not so funny part of it is that I wasn't supposed to be on the schedule til tomorrow, and got called at 7:15 this morning since I wasn't at work yet when I shouldn't have had to be there til 8. Lo and behold I was already on the schedule, no boot with me because I figured I'd still have light duty, and 4 patients. My boss's response: well you would have been off light duty anyway since you went to the doctor yesterday and I forgot to take you off the schedule and we had lots of call outs and no shows today and you have to be on the floor. You can sit down all you need....
Well, I didn't sit down much, and I really think that she figured she had another nurse without having to pay for it since light duty comes out of another budget.
I think I'll talk to my union rep.

Blessed be.

Oh no Becky! My Becca has broken foot too! She's in a post-op boot, goes Thur for follow-up X-rays. Hope you are healing well!

Have fun picking out furniture!

My day was good, worked out at the Y, took dd to tutoring, hit the bookstore, came home for dinner then off to Yarn Group.

At the bookstore today I saw a magazine with an article about knitting one sock inside the other .. pretty cool!

Went to the dr, foot was broken I guess but is healing okay. John and I looked at suits for him for the wedding, went to a bridal shop to look for dresses for Vivi, then went to an Amish furniture shop to look at bedroom furniture. After that I had McDonald's and got sicker than all get-out when we got home. That'll teach me....but tomorrow will be my last day of light duty!

It's chilly but nice here today. I had errands to run so I parked the car, and got a total of 20 minutes walking to get to the places I needed to get to instead of parking at all of them. Then I went to Long John Silver's for lunch....hadn't been there for ages. My foot is a little sore, but I wore my tennis shoes instead of the boot to see how it went. Have my checkup tomorrow, hope the boot comes off for good. Even if my foot is still sore, I'm telling the MD it feels fine so I can get back to work!

Blessed be.

This is really crazy weather. We had snow flurries this morning, after 70s on Saturday and thunder storms yesterday.
Since it rained, I finished my nephew's blanket. Yeah! All 3 done and I will see them in less than 2 weeks!!!
I am looking at patterns to decide what I want to start next!
Have a great Monday!

How many projects going at once are too many? LOL
I started another new one yesterday. I need to finish something!
Enjoy your Sunday! nothing to do today! maybe clean the house but otherwise the day is mine to do nothing!

Busy day today, Wendy! I'm going to be studying and trying to do a little housework so John can actually breathe when he gets here (he's allergic to cats and I have 3 of them). It's sunny outside but cool. I need to get to the grocery store, literally have nothing to eat except some jello pudding and some soup. So that's on my agenda too. Everyone have a good day.

My internet has been down since Saturday night. I felt like I was on another planet with the withdrawal of it all. Now, semi-fixed. (I can have internet or phone, but not both until I get another splitter.) Now I can hop on to Sparks when I get the munchies at night.

Oh Wendy, you know me too well! I was hurting last night so what did I do....stay up til 3 a.m. turning a hank of yarn into a ball. I was doing really well on it til about the last fourth of it and then it started tangling so it took me a while. Sigh...oh well, got it done and am learning to do a toe up sock. So I guess you'd better whack me again!
Hope your DH gets feeling better.
Take care, everyone!

Blessed be.

--Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Good morning everyone. Today is my 21st wedding anniversary. Thank you Mamajulia, but I am not sick my DH has bronchotis. This is the 4th day he is home from work. I was just complaining that I never get to stay in bed when I am sick like he does. But I am getting worried that he needs to go back to the dr again since he doesn't seem to be feeling better.
I have been trying to knit every night to relax before bed. I want to finish the last blanket for my nephew before we see them in April.
Have a great day!
Enjoy your time off Lady!
Becky --- slap slap - either your on the computer or knitting get back to school work! LOL :)
