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?
