I have a workman coming Mon. to install a closet organizer, make and repair thresholds, fix the leak damage in the bathroom and get it ready to paint and hang a few things. After my new blinds come, March 3rd, he'll come back and install them and paint the bathroom...then it is on to organizing the den and its closet. So soon I'll have home repair pictures to take and show off...of course I'm letting a workman do the easy stuff...I'm doing the hard part, working to pay for it all!

Susan is recovering....but it is tough. Talking to her brings back memories.....painful memories!
It is no fun recovering from being gut cut. Hopefully she will come home Sunday.

Been reading a book, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo. It is a wonderful adventure of a china rabbit. It is reminiscent of the Velveten Rabbit, but not as sentimental and more complex and longer. I can't wait till the girls are old enough to read it to them. Since it is a novel of almost 200 pages I'll have a bit of a till they are in 1st or 2nd grade!

Nothing much else going on. Have a bit of a cold that is going around our dept., but nothing too bad. Just gives me a good excuse to lay low tomorrow and knit, wash and relax.

Woke up at 4:30 this morning. Couldn't get Susan off my mind. She is having a hysterectomy this morning. Her husband can't be down before the surgery and I'm feeling guilty that I can't cancel my booktalks this morning and be with her till she goes down. Hope everything works out ok. She has been in for over a week with an infection following a gyn procedure. Since it isn't clearing up they are doing the surgery. They have tried their best....Infection specialist and other specialist were called in but it appears the source of the infection just needs to be removed.

Work has been driving me crazy lately.....too much work and too little support!

Been working on the Judi Lloyd scrapbook. It has been sad and happy. Hope the end results will give her grandkids a sense of who she was.

Been knitting a prayer shaw for another friend who is having a hyserictomy which has a 50/50 chance of being cancer. Not a good month for friends and their guts!

Also knitting a small mini blanket for Austen's while she is sleeping. It is very simple, but cute due to its size.

Finally I am knitting something for myself! It is a dressy sweater that I bought the yarn for almost 2 years ago and it may take me 2 years to finish.....but at least I've started!

Maybe I'll do blogs more often....just so everyone can see what an exciting life I lead!
