It's been a long, eventful time. I'm knitting an Irish cardigan for Elizabeth for her first Christmas. Saturday, while starting the second sleeve, I discovered I'd miscounted the placement of the increases on the first sleeve so that it end... Read more
Never enough

I finished my son's Christmas stocking, but I'm not totally happy with it. I sort of "invented" the lettering putting his name on it, but I don't think it came out as well as I'd hoped. I know he won't care, but I want the very best for him. ... Read more

Yesterday was a serious pain. The day shift CNA was so crabby, I hesitated even to ask for coffee. I couldn't figure out the instructions for the heel on the Christmas stocking I'm knitting for my son (and I do know how to turn a heel). I c... Read more

I hope everybody who celebrates it had a great Thanksgiving. Mine was about what you'd expect in here. I tried to call my son but the phone system at his facility wasn't working so I wasn't able to talk to him. I finally got through to him yeste... Read more

Someone down the hall has been watching true crime TV since before seven this morning at top volume. I asked if they could be asked to turn it down or use headphones, but nothing happened. Grrr... Scary moment last night. I had just fallen ... Read more
Rainy, muggy Thursday

We've gotten heavier than normal rain the last couple of days. But it's so warm and muggy that I suspect we're getting a tropical front. I just completed my first hat AND my first mitten! Knitting the second mitten as we speak. The set, alo... Read more

I broke down and bought a new toy yesterday -- an Iphone 7+! Classiest, priciest phone I've ever had. However, buying it turned out to be more of an adventure than I bargained for. I went to the AT&T website to buy a new phone (my coverage is on... Read more

They reassigned the other bed in my room the next morning. Luckily we get along fine. She's leaving tomorrow. Serious crazy great-aunt brag time! Elizabeth is technically four months old, but one month corrected gestational age (because she... Read more

I have a cold. I've been awake since four AM. The guy across the hall has had his TV on blasting volume since six AM. I'm having trouble finishing the toe of my latest sock, even though I had no trouble with the first one (second of a pair). Fac... Read more

I am about to burst with pride for my amazing great-niece Angie. She qualified for the spelling bee. She impressed her music teacher enough on bells and made it into the winter concert (something generally reserved for 5th graders due to th... Read more

I'm not up for humor today. I'm coming down with a cold and I got very little sleep last night. Roomie tends to get chatty at 3AM. I don't say anything because she just takes it as encouragement to keep talking. Then at 6:30AM, when the CNA came... Read more

My roommate sleeps up to 90% of the day. I'm an insomniac with lifelong sleep issues. I don't know whether I envy or pity her. You know what? I'm tired of apologizing, especially for spending money on high-quality yarn and tools. I spent ye... Read more
