Tomorrow it's back to school for the kids. Last week was March Break, and it sucked for us. I had a rotten cold before March Break even started, the Littlest One missed three days the week before March Break, and the Oldest One missed one. The Littlest One woke up at 10:50pm on that Thursday, screaming blue murder, his ear hurt. It was a rough night. Our doctor doesn't work Fridays any more (unless he decides to, then he only sees previously booked appointments, they won't answer the phone if you call, you get the machine). So I called the hospital and couldn't get him seen til 2:30. (And the lady was very suspicious when she asked who my doctor was and that I couldn't get in on Fridays.) I was sooooo glad I called and got an appointment, they were crazy busy up there, but we got right in. He was getting really crabby, and both ears started hurting. One of his classmate's father was on call, and he said both ears were infected. So he was on antibiotics for seven days. Wednesday of last week I was off, and I felt sick all day, and the puking started at 11pm. I had the flu, and Friday morning 9am we were supposed to be heading for the city for the Oldest One's curling tournament. I ended up missing work on Thursday, and luckily Hubs got home early in the morning that day, his truck left in the city, so he drove in Friday cuz I still felt rotten. (I'm still coughing up a lung like I smoke two packs a day, and I've never smoked in my life.) Anyhoo, the next post will be about the tournament. They didn't win, but they had fun, and they did better than they did last year.
I finished up two pairs of socks. The first one are Traffic Island Socks
in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock
in the bittersweet colorway. Started March 9, finished the 14th. Ravelry
The second pair is Harris Tweed socks
in Patons Kroy FX
clay colors with cadet colors for cuffs, heels, and toes. These were started March 14 and finished the 17th. I just HAD to have them finished for the 18th so they could be gifted, it was the last time I could arrange to have the recipent pick them up. How I finished them as sick as what I was I'll never know. All I can say is I didn't touch a needle the next day at all. Ravelry details here
And this is Maggie's new favourite place to lay. I find her here all the time in the sunshine now.
The dogs were ever so happy to get home from the kennel today, but the cats were mad that I brought them home.
