It’s been a week, that is for sure! I am poopticated. There’s almost too much to talk about.
First off, my Mom had surgery today. She has been going through hell for months with diverticulitis. Today she had a colon resection, removing 8 inches of her diseased and blocked colon and now is sporting a colostomy bag. Luckily, it is only for 6 months while her colon heals. This, knitters, has not been a fun journey. I’m going to tell you something very important now. Listening?
Here it is, the most important thing I will ever say to you now and forever: EAT YOUR FIBER. I’m serious. Drink Metamucil, eat fruits and veggies and for god’s sake, eat WHOLE GRAINS.
My mother has had the worst diet of anyone I have ever known ever. And it came back to bite her.
Other than that? I am knitting some dimorphous mittens (great waiting room knitting) and traveling too much to these visits. In between? Dishrag=me.
But the knitting? Is keeping me sane. (imagine??) (no comments from the peanut gallery)
I wrote a haiku:
A cat in my lap
Biting needles, tugging yarn.
On the up side, I wore my sweater again today and I have a warm stone arm and hand massage and a pedicure scheduled tomorrow. I’m feeling a need for pampering. Just doing my part to stimulate the economy!
