Sorry I haven’t written in awhile – what a time I’ve been having! #1 son turned 10 this weekend (sob, double digits!!) and had a friend sleep over and a small family party. Well, now that we actually live around family again that is still 16 people! It might be cheaper to have a friends party!! I spent 75% of the weekend in bed…I even felt too icky to knit! I read or laid there and whined ;). DH was a trooper though – he went grocery shopping (at three stores no less) and made dinner! Sunday I got out of bed and did laundry and baked a birthday cake and cupcakes. Then after the party – but while family was still visiting – I put my feet up in my recliner and knit on my socks. I have’t had a chance to work on them and I’m starting to think I’ll never finish!
Yesterday it was back to a regular school schedule and I was able to knit for one uninterrupted hour while #2 son did his gymastics. But today…today has been anything but normal. #1 son stayed hom from school (he attends the school where DH teaches) complaining of a stomache again. We are about at whit’s end trying to figure out what is causing these stomach aches. Fortunately, his doctor called to schedule some labwork for the referral to a specialist (they suspect Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and since J1 was home ill, they were glad to have him come in. Long story short (is it possible? 😉 we lived through the experience but I find myself emotionally drained.
I’d be looking forward to an evening of therapy knitting, but tonight is one of three quilting classes with my friend Theresa. I know it will be fun, but it’s not relaxing like curling up under my blankey with my knitting needles. Oh well, there’s always tomorrow!
