I want to ask for prayers today. Hubster has a co-worker who just lost his wife this past week. She was headed to Illinois but never made it out of Indiana. She was found at a truck stop, slumped over the steering wheel. They were such a cute couple, full of life and love. We are so heartbroken for Hoss and his family. And a family friend on my side has lost his mother. She was very old, so it wasn’t unexpected, but still a hard thing to deal with.
And this news makes me determined to appreciate my life and my loves even more. I hate that it takes events like this to make us look at things in a new light, but I was already planning on keeping Life in the fore front of my mind in 2016.
This weekend had lots of Life to be lived. We spent most of Saturday watching Diva Girl dive and chatting with my parents and some friends. Their daughter got 5th and ours got 6th. We are so proud of them considering this is the first year of diving for both!
Sunday after church and grocery shopping I sat down to continue working on charity hat knitting. Got a preemie hat done using this pattern. I just love the little white pom on top!! Planning to make a few more in this style before moving on to another pattern. I need to start looking at hats to decide which pattern next. I get in a rut sometimes using the same pattern over and over, so I will try to not dull the enthusiasm for charity knitting.
Then Hubster rushed Diva Girl to the ER with stomach pains. We have been dealing with this issue for 2 years now. We were hoping the Gall Bladder removal would take care of the issue, but so far, not. Again they can find no reason for her episodes. Her Dr sent her for Lab work, we are just waiting for the results. But I am sure the lack of a GB has something to do with it, but the stabbing pains? So hard to see your child sobbing in pain and doubled over.
Now, back to sweater knitting, which I will update tomorrow, the back is……..maybe done?
Joining the other crafters who are staying calm today, Frontier has the goods! I am staying extra calm because I am at the orthodontist getting my braces off!!! I cannot wait to eat a large bag of kettle corn! Chomp ice. Eat rice without it getting stuck in my wires!! I have so many food plans it’s disgusting. LOL
