Thank you, thank you for all your supportive comments! After next f-ing Friday this site is sure to turn a bit …. um … nasty. I hope you will continue to read despite all the bitching & moaning. Come to think of it, it may actually improve my stats. There’s nothing like having a good, safely distant view of a woman gone beserk!
I have also received some emails from fellow bloggers and friends who are taking the plunge with me. I will not ‘out’ them until they post about it themselves. Perhaps we should start a webring? We would need a fabulous, ironic, tongue-in-cheek name for it …..
In other news, I sliced my thumb while using my mandoline yesterday — ouch! I don’t believe my injury will interfere with my knitting. I was getting dinner ready, slicing cucumbers for salad and both Daughters were in the kitchen. We were chatting and I took my eyes off my hands for a split second. I screamed as a small portion of my thumb came off. While the Daughters are used to the sound of me screaming, it takes on a different tone when I’m in pain. They are not accustomed to that sound. They were both concerned and Daughter #2 ran for the band-aids.
At the exact same time she was asking if I was okay, Daughter #1 began eyeballing the bowl of cucumbers …… some angel of mercy she is!
Now I ask you, what’s a little bit of thumb between a mother & daughter?
I’m out. It’s weird.
I hope you were able to knit today. That freaking window guy tried to blow me off but I put up a big stink! He came and did zip. Sigh. What kind of dressing were you using?
Good luck! Its hard, but I’m sure you can do it!
ouch annie! your so descriptive that I still have the willies! i will remember this event in case you ever offer me the ‘green thumb salad’ hope you’re better today. xo
