Like Counting Backwards


This morning we took Wes to the vet for a few shots (planned), some nail clipping (jumped at the offer) and a little teeth scraping (MUCH better than bringing him in and leaving him for a whole day – and no anaesthesia).

He took it like a man

and clung to me like a teenager clings to the last Krispy Kreme in the box.

(Binky – He clung to me in a very manly way – he wanted me to let you know that.)

He blew out so much fur that I used most of a pet fur roller to change my shirt back from white to brown.

When we got home I gave him a good brushing and he bounced back nicely.



After waiting almost a month for my appointment with the orthopaedic surgeon – sure the pain was gone by this time but I kept the appointment anyway – I told him about my neck problems and tossed in my knee problems, just for good measure. Then I got to hang around for an hour while they took x-rays of neck and knee.

The result really isn’t a surprise to me. They didn’t find anything. I take after my Mom in that respect. Pains but nothing to see.

He did say that I probably would need an MRI of my neck to see why I have tingling in my left arm/hand. It’s probably a disk thing but since I’m REALLY claustrophobic he didn’t see any point in my getting an MRI if I’m not in so much pain that I can’t stand it.

He offered to give me a shot in my knee, just to see if the pain would go away. I respectfully declined his kind offer. Why a shot if he doesn’t see anything? I’ll deal with it…thought I’ll keep whining about it.

I’ve gotta be me.

More updated to my Ravelry stash. Up to 94 in stash. Still working on 1 side of the room and haven’t gone near those cubes. Every yarn I come across excites me and I want to work with it RIGHT NOW!!!

Don’t think I showed this picture but it’s most of the stuff from the closet.


I even found these Endpaper Mitts that I had started over a year ago.


I know that I was so jazzed to work on them that I didn’t read the instructions clearly and never changed my needle size when I finished the ribbing. When I realized I had messed up…I gave up! Now I want to re-start them and get it right. Funny thing is that my wrist is so small that the size 0 needle for what I had done so far was good. But any further and I’d be showing off my Mitts with blue fingertips for lack of circulation.

Since Thursday morning I’ve been kinda icky feeling. I’m thinking it’s my allergies. Being away for 3 days in a hotel room spoiled my body and now I’ve got to get used to the dust/fur/clutter bunnies. TOUGHEN UP, CHICK!

At least Tom didn’t hire a naked maid while I was away.

From the Associated Press

A nude maid cleaned up good at a Florida man’s home.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office says the maid stole more than $40,000 from a Cheval home despite not wearing any clothes.

The 50-year-old man hired the maid from the Internet on Friday to clean his suburban Tampa home.
Authorities say the woman arrived at the home in a one-piece, light colored dress. She took off the dress and cleaned the house for $100-per-hour.

Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Debbie Carter says the man told deputies he left the maid alone in the bedroom to clean.

When the man’s wife came home from vacation, she discovered $40,000 in jewelry missing from their bedroom.

But maybe she would have cleaned the house first?

Tomorrow’s post…Monday thru Wednesday.

  1. That looks like one contented kitty. 🙂

    Your stash photos on flickr make me hungry — Rowan Kidsilk Spray Vino. Nomnomnom!

  2. Good trip for the kitty he looks content resting by the door there. Those mitts really do look nice I like the color combo you chose –those are some of my favorite colors.

    And the naked maid…well this is too funny! It serves that old geezer right if you ask me!

  3. Must restart Endpaper. Its a law.

    And are you saying you have 94 skeins of yarn?

    Binky says “my man is sooo brave, sigh”

    Sorry to hear about the knee/neck stuff. Maybe its fibromyalgia. Not that I know anything about it – just heard that its painful but they cannot really specifically diagnose it. Its mystery pain. ??
