Whew!!!I'm ready for this week to be over, and for a chance to make a fresh start (and attitude adjustment) on Monday. The "highlight" of the week was spending Tuesday night in the E.R. because my mom freaked me out that the pain I'd been feeling on the right side of my stomach was a sign that my appendix was going to blow ANY SECOND. Luckily, after a VERY thorough work-up and a day to recover on Wednesday, I was given a clean bill of health. I should have known I was going to be fine - before heading to the E.R., I made sure I had enough yarn to keep working on my new love - Wild Apple.
(Sorry for the blurry shot - no natural light in the Winter!)
This bohus kit is seriously the best $200-something I've spent in a LONG time. Plus, I'm really looking forward to the miles of stockinette on size 0 needles!
In other news, Cricket has been busy with the new house. We've had some plumbing issues (involving water dripping from the kitchen ceiling when we took a bath), but we think we've fixed it... we keep checking each time to make sure there are no leaks, and Cricket is eager to help.
She's also eager to help me make the bed... she's such a team player! I mean, if it wasn't for her, how would we EVER get that nice, cream-colored bottom sheet all smooth?
Of course, for bigger jobs, like putting away clean laundry, Cricket needs help. That's where Abby really starts to pull her weight!
And, of course, Cricket takes time to set up sordid assignations with her new lover - we call him "heat vent." Hint - that little nightstand-shelf-thing is set up directly in front of the heat vent - and there's no back on the shelf. It turns into a little tunnel of hot air, and she LOVES IT.
"Hey - I said I'd start going to the gym - stop telling me my butt is too big to fit under this thing!"
