New Project

So Julie sent me yarn to knit Vodka Lemonade.

I thought that it was Malabrigo, but I stand corrected.
Julie told me today that it is Super Secret Yarn. This is the DK weight and it is a wool/silk blend.

It is knitting up very nicely so far!

Everything is progressing.

Amanda is back home!! I don't know how, but I forgot the drama that my teenage girl carries but it's all worth it to know that she is safe and cared for. She'll adjust to my house rules and I'll get used to her ways of doing things. I'm just glad that she's back <3 about="" all="" am="" br="" but="" creative="" do="" get="" had="" have="" her="" i="" if="" in="" not="" nothing="" of="" room="" that="" the="" to="" what="" with="" yarn="">

I have started physio and it's making a difference already! I am still knitting - secret projects and challenging deadlines - and I can knit for longer and I'm sleeping way better! I said to Lee the other day that it was nice to sleep through a night w/o the pain caused by pulling a duvet over my shoulders waking me up. Of course, I still have all sorts else that plague my sleep, but one less is an achievement. Lee is off Home for a couple of weeks so I will be knitting up a storm!!

I have also scheduled an endometrial ablation for May 20th. The doctor has allowed that I am at an "ideal age" for the procedure to bring about the desired results. A cessation of my monthly cycle and the resulting crippling pain. It's been about a year and a half that I've been on T3's and Percs for about two weeks out of the month - not a good long  term solution. After everything else, this will be a relatively simple procedure.

And then it will be softball season!!! I can't wait!!!

Just a wordy post covering the basics. I will (once again ... I know ...) try to be more diligent with posts and pics (even if they have to be useless).
