Holy Crap, where did the time go!
Wow, I can't believe it has been almost a month since my last post. Where did the time go, oh yeah, sick kids and Christmas prep. Both little guys have bronchitis so after spending 2 hours in the clinic waiting to see the Doc last Thursday for Justice we got out antibiotics at that time Collin just had the sniffles. No biggie, Saturday night the temperature sky rockets and his coughing up phlegm like no tomorrow. So at 2:30 am I decide to take him in to Emergency and sure enough after 2 hours of a bronchial treatment, xrays, a 2 minute consult with the Dr. and numerous talks with 3 different nurses we walk out of the hospital with a prescription and 2 doses of meds to tide us over till a pharmacy opens. In the last week I've gotten 13 hours sleep and that is being generous and it doesn't help that I'm starting to come down with something too. Crap I sure hope it isn't bronchitis too, I haven't had that for at least 6 years(something I used to get from the age of 13 to my late 20's a couple times a year).
On the up side I received my second Sockret Pal package on Saturday and "Wooot" my pal sure did out do herself once again. Here's the list of the most awesome goodies a gal could get: a cone of yarn in burgandy/black that would make a delicious shawl, a skein of her own kool aid dyed yarn, perfect for a pair of sockies and it's an orange vareigated(how did you know I've been itching for some orange yarn?), a curly black with burgandy scarf(sorry, not pictured in the second pic, I was wearing it, lol), red sequins, candy for the kiddies and cookies(or is it cake) which both barely made the pic in between hubby and the boys wanting them, notepad/calendar, knitted sock keychain, a gorgeous wooden Santa and wooden Angel both I will treasure in the years to come(I am a big collector of handcrafted Christmas ornaments and these are just gorgeous. I hope I didn't forget anything. Thank you so much Sockret Pal for the best package ever!:) Once I finish up these last few giftees I will be casting on for a pair of socks with my new yarn, you did a marvelous job with the dyeing.
I do have a few Fo's, to tell you about, will post pics tomorrow since hubby has the camera. I have a pair of socks for Jordan, a pair of Fetching using Mission Falls Merino(and a stashbuster) for one of Justice's teachers' assistants and by the end of today I should have the scarf done for his teacher(another stashbuster). I lucked out with the second aid, I've got a purple Silky Tweed scarf I made in a quick design I conjured up kicking about waiting for the perfect recipient and low and behold on the field trip we went on at the beginning of the week with Justice's class that assistant wears a purple coat/mitts and hat but no scarf. What luck and it is the perfect shade to boot. I still have to whip up a couple of scarves for the little guys but those I'll be using Woolease and large needles so those should go quickly too. How much longer do I have before Christmas? lol.
Well, time for the little guys' medicine again. Happy knitting everyone and Merry Christmas!
