I’ve been knitting socks this week. They’re portable. And I needed portable, because I attended 2 baseball games and three concerts this week. Oh, and I sat in the emergency room for 3 hours one night too. I’ll start with the ER.
Dreamboy is playing baseball this year. (That explains the baseball games, huh?) He got hit with a baseball. It took us three hours of sitting around in the ER to see if his nose was broken. I could start a rant about all the people that go to the ER instead of making appointments and going during the day like the rest of us, but I don’t have that much breath to waste.
Anyway, where was I? Oh, yeah. In the ER. When we finally got a room, they gave Dreamboy a remote control so he could watch tv. He was lounging on one of their nice beds. I had my feet up on his bed. I got a Dr. Pepper for him, and a Diet Coke for me. I pulled out the bag of chocolates I grabbed on the way out the door and the mother-son bonding time began. It’s actually starting to sound not so bad!!! I even finished a sock.
After eating chocolate, knitting, watching tv, and drinking sodas, we found out that Dreamboy does indeed have a broken nose. Next week, after the swelling goes down, he’ll have it set, since his nose is now crooked. Superblonde informed us that the crooked nose is working for Patrick Dempsey, but I’m not buying it.
Just think how much better looking he’d be if his nose was straight!
Just for the record, the only thing green on our yard is the grass. The trees are just barely starting to bud.
And also just for the record, I suck at short row heels. The one you can see is the first one I did and it’s ok. The other one is much worse. What’s up with that?
So, what am I doing with my Saturday? I had a board meeting this morning. (There’s a donate button, if you’re so inclined. No pressure!) This afternoon, I’m going to finish up the laundry and work on a quilt. Oh, and my sidekick wants to take a nap with me. We do a 20 minute power nap several days a week. How else do I stay up til 2:00 AM?
And next week? Hopefully some progress on my Aeolian Shawl and the house quilt.
