Well I had my 6 mo. checkup with my oncologest on Wed. All is well and since I am almost 4 yrs cancer free he said we could take out my port. It is getting more difficult to access (happens after a few years...turns and is hard to find the opening) so he said we might as well take it out as he doesn't see it needing to be used anytime soon...yeah! Is not so much of a problem for me except I have to get it flushed every 6 weeks at $15 a visit, so this will give me two days off work (yeah) and save me money. I'll get it out May 13...believe it or not it is the first Thurs., Fri I don't have work or family things going on!

Work is easing up a bit...all the 4th 5th gr are done. They are fun to do but tiring. Now it is on to storytime. An odd thing has happened with that. Last fall the 2 storytimes on Fri. (ones I was scheduled to do) didn't fill up so I only had to do one. This time they both filled up right away and the ones on Tues. and Thurs. didn't fill up....go figure! That is why it is so hard to schedule. Guys at work are teasing me saying everyone wants mine, but we don't tell who is doing which so as much as my ego would like to believe that, it isn't so!

I've started knitting prayer shaws. They are basically long and wide and knitted for someone in need of a good prayerful hug. I am doing two right now. One for a friend's husband whose grandchild died at 7 mo. and one for a friend who is having a hard time at work. I also have in production a pillow for a friend (wedding present) a small blanket for Lucinda (fun, but hard!), sweater for Jen and Emma. Why so many projects? I get bored easily! I have started a knitting journal (records what is knitted for whom and with what and a picture) with an album Judi gave me. It is fun to look at what has been done.

Have book club tonight. Our book is Queen Noor's bio....I've listened to two disks and looked at the pictures......

A friend gave me a great photo album for Christmas. One where you make comment/notes with each picture. I am putting Grand's in it...Emma and whoever comes after Tod and Holly, get don't want the whole album taken up with Mark and Jen's progeny do you?....ha!
