Marvalous Monday

I know silly me to think of it that way. It is my first day back to work in a week. I have been so lazy , just napping willy nilly and knitting . I have done my first 32 rows on the Hanami . The hardest part has been putting beads on . I think I could get by with a little bit bigger crotchet hook . I have been using dental floss in combo with hook to get bead on. I also have had to rub some wax on yarn to have bead slide.

Also I get to drive my car for the second time in a month ! Wha hoo. to pay out so much money for the thrill of my go green go cart !

I need to write . Not writing means I'm not happy , I am in slug mode . The very sad part is I don't easily realize it , till i'm out of the mud of my head. So if you read me and i'm not writing tell me . that i read everyday or at least delete.

The latest news in my world. Where to start. My car ? My truck I gave back? My nose ? Not bending over so nose is lower then heart? Trying to figure out relationship with husband .

too much to write in one day. My car broke a month ago. Dale did not want to put anymore money into it , when I only owed 538 !!! I went with him on this picked out a red very cute 2000 blazer only to be so mad at Dale I could have moved out !
With only one payment made , the truck needs a new engine . Oh hell no . So with tears , yes tears , I asked the salesman for my car back.

Now there could be new set of tears as I find out my broke car needs new transmission. Which over the phone the mechanic thought would be a piece at a time fix. NOT . It needs new transmission. So now not only do I get to pay close to three times what I owed on my car I now get to pay for a transmission. My dad is lending me money for that. Problem solved . still living with Dale for a bit longer.

My nose . I'm a Florida born and all my life lived girl. Well the bad part of the sun has settled more then once on my face esp my nose. Very bad cells grew, basil carcinoma to be precise. I did not move on getting this checked for at least a year. Shame on me . But not so late that I have crater in nose , cause today it looks pretty good. I had the area removed yesterday at Parkside Surgery Center in Riverside. The treatment was so good. I even have plans to teach a nurse to knit.

Hey that could be a new group in town.

On the knitting front , I have a shawl I want to start but have to make at tote bag for it first.

My silk top from artfibers that is coming along so great. I am so thrilled with it. It was bought cause I did not believe the price of the kit , so I had to buy it .

Now Kristen wants gray yarn to do a shrug out of .

On a finale note sleeping on the couch when not mad at Dale is not much fun.

Sad day

My coworker , Angela , lost her dad yesterday to a peanut allergy . He was eating recesses pieces by mistake . Did whatever he could to get them out of his system but it was not good enough. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

That leaves us short one person at work, with only five of us to the office part of a clinic its gonna be crazy next week.

I tried to knit last night putting good thoughts out to her but I only got a row and a half done. I was just so overwhelmed by her loss.

He was a nice man even wanted me to teach him to knit . Somehow I never found the time . Shame on me.

Wow it has been a long time since I've had anything to say. Well now we know that is not true , I've just not taken the time to type it.

Spring is upon us . The weather is the best I can remember . I work today with my reward being wine tasting at the wine warehouse and planning to get a new cookbook. With Dale home I am cooking more. Now to get some recipes that are good and not full of fat.

Fitday is an amazing site to help U keep track of you weight .
Knitmoregirls had a great interview with a lady from Russia on the last podcast ,that really shows how male female relationships are the same no matter what country you live in.

hulu is a great resource for more tv if you need background knitting noise.

I have started a swatch for Nadine out of French Girl Knits , I am planning on knitting up the whole book !

I am so thrilled I have a computer again. Jessica , a mom from our Tuesday group donated her ex-husband computer to my needs. Her name is now Betty. My friends all name their spinning wheels , so i'm practicing.

Tyler is doing okay . He is into week two after falling from a tree and breaking , crushing his ankles.

Chantel is up to 23 weeks and Charles looks good.

Kristen finally seems to be feeling well. She has had some lingering something since December . The alkasetzer for cold stuff seems to have knocked what ever it was out of her system. We are looking for Military ball dress. I didn'tget to help much , my back muscles this morning screamed at me of their existance. When I walked into work , I felt like scaffolding in the wind. As I type this I feel the need to be back on the heating pad.

Ipod is all updated .
