It's been quite a week here. I can't really write about it all as I should, So here comes a list (In chronological order.)
-Fun times with Melissa, who turned 30. It was a surprise event and a good time was had by all.
-A trip to the ER. Pete had a kidney stone and almost passed out from the pain. Horrible and icky. I can't quite express how hard it was seeing him in this much pain.
-Met Kay and Ann (mason-dixon knitting) who are wonderful and funny as all get out. Going with them to a knitting shop was amazing, especially because I actually tried to talk to Ann about knitting. (I have only knit hats and booties, to give you a reference. She was very patient with me) I love their book. . .oh yeah, Mariko was there too. What would I do without her? Not much, that's what.
-Mailorder error alert-the boots are missing! PDF uploaded.
Which bring us up to today:
-Still trying to get mailorder out the door.
-Pete has another trip to the ER this morning, this time in an ambulance. Okay, his stone hasn't passed yet and I know a lot more now about IV drips, 911, emergency room etiquette, and assorted painkillers
-More mailorder. . .
So that's where I am now. Pete still isn't in the clear, which is not so good. I have all the mailorders out now, except the international ones, which I have to do in person on Monday. We also may have to go into the hospital again, but we are hoping not. E-mail and blogging might be sporadic, especially because I am beat tired and have out of town friends coming in on Monday for the week. . .
So some good times were had this week, some very hard times, and hopefully we will get through this all soon. I am trying to stay positive, but having emergency health issues, getting immediate care for the girls or taking them to the ER with us, all that (and most of it happening in the middle of the night or wee hours of the morning) has made a wreck of us.
So, what is up with these blouses? Yeah, well, catalogs (anthropologie) are in front of me and it's something for me to rest my eyes on. And the smocking and crochet details in these are making me very happy. So reason enough to show them I say. I'll take what I can get right now, you know?
