Mood:  accident prone
Topic: Ranting
Flu still abounds in our household. I've been fighting it for a few days and Cal is completely caught in it's grasp.

And to make matters worse;

1. I cut my finger last night while making beef pot pie. Thank goodness my Mom was coming over to make the crust (I can't make crusts at all!), so she was able to finish the meal. I probably should have gone to the ER for a stitch or two, but the thought of sitting over at the hospital for a few hours didn't appeal to me. So I've bandaged it really tight. And now I'm trying to type without using my pointer finger on my right hand.

2. I had to cancel the Beth Brown Reinsel class. :( Thank you to those that signed up. I'll try to get other classes going that are of interest to you all.

What a fun week (not)
Mood:  hungry
Now Playing: Goo Goo Dolls "Black Balloon"
Topic: Ranting

My plans for Sunday and Monday were shot to hell shortly after I finished my blog entry last Sunday.

The short story is that I wound up with another gallstone attack (that last remaining stone that was stuck in a duct decided to rear it's ugly head!), was sent to the hospital on Monday afternoon, had 2 (not 1, but TWO) ERCP's. The first was unsuccessful, and I was transferred to a larger hospital with a specialist who was able to remove the offending stone on Wednesday morning. Lets just say that waking up in the middle of surgery is NOT fun, and rather scary. I was sent home on Thursday, and am now on a low fat diet for a week or so, until the area the doctor had to cut in my bile duct is healed.

I did have the foresight to bring a skein of yarn, my Denise needle set and the pattern for the amazing sweater, but being on morphine and anti nausea meds isn't too conducive to knitting. :)

So I'm home this weekend, taking it easy, and with the impending snowstorm scheduled to start this afternoon, maybe I'll get some fiber time in.

I also was unable to shear my rabbits on Monday. That probably wasn't a bad thing, seeing that the temps this week have been in the negative numbers, and I wasn't home to monitor their condition (although Deanna does a fabulous job as step-bunny Mom). I will try to shear one of them today, and we'll see how well this goes. The rabbit might not pass registration, as it will have only had 84 days of wool growing time instead of 90, but hey, it's worth a shot.

Can anyone explain this?
Mood:  sharp
Now Playing: Toto "99"
Topic: Ranting
It's snowing outside. We now have about 7 inches of the white stuff. School has a delay of 2 hours. Can anyone explain why they would send elementary school students in today, when they normally get out at 1:20 p.m. on Wednesdats? Cal will have exactly 2 hours and 40 minutes of school. This, I can't explain.

Other than that, I'm slowly working on the raglan sweater. I think I finally have it going right. :)

Tonight is a parade committee meeting. I'm wondering if I want to start a pair of socks to work on during the meeting. I'm not up for doing two color knitting, so I might start the alpaca/wool socks. One strand of Inca Alpaca in natural, and one strand of sock yarn in a variegated natural & charcoal.
