Whine

I did something to my back. It needs to be better quickly.

Friday At Last!


Yesterday was a day. A couple days ago, I cracked a filling. I was able to get an appointment with the dentist yesterday. Turns out I needed a crown. I knew that was going to happen, but part of me held out for something less. I was in at 1500 and out by 1640 with a crown in place. Fifteen years ago, that procedure would have been three trips with a two week break. So I'm glad its done and over with, but the pocketbook wasn't happy.

I meant to get a picture of the sock in progress, but I didn't. I finished the heel flap, I was about half way done, and now I'm about mostly done with the in-step. Overall, it was good chunk of knitting.

Tonight, Grilltech and I are off to a food truck rally at the Idaho Botanical Garden. It will be the first time I've ever been there. We're going to meet up with some friends, walk around the gardens then eat. It should be a good time.

I hope everyone has a good weekend.

Monday Folow Up

Overall, I had a good weekend. Grilltech and I didn't do much of anything, but it was nice. Okay, I did get some knitting on a washcloth done. Not really exciting knitting, but it's something. I'm about six or eight rows away from being done with the sleeves on the tunic, but I just can't bring myself to work on it.

Still waiting to hear back on the car. I'm hoping it will be done today.

List Day

  • Gas is at $2.95 per gallon
  • Fluid Motion posted a wonderful looking blueberry crumb bars recipe, think I'll try it
  • The car is back at the mechanic.... hopefully it won't cost overly much
  • How can someone so small sound like a herd of elephants?
  • No, I'm not talking about Baby Bird, because I know how she can sound like a herd of elephants
  • And my day is mostly over. Mostly
  • I'm going to head to the store to pick up dinner, it will be potato soup. There are people in the house who are looking forward to that

Life in the Fast Lane

Sorry for the radio silence, I've been fairly busy.

I took a two week course for a certification test I'll be taking. I'm pretty stressed over this stupid test, stressed enough it's interrupting my sleep. Funny thing is, I know this crap and can do it. I'm having a hard time remembering that.

I've been working on my tunic. I'm about two and half inches away from finishing the sleeves. I'll show a picture when I'm done, because right now, it looks the same.

Not much else is going on, so peace out.

Confessions

It's Friday. I've been maintaining. I haven't lost any weight, but I haven't gained any. What's that called? Status Quo?

It's been a week since I went to practice. J wasn't feeling well last night and on Tuesday I made some Stroganoff. I haven't practiced for a couple of weeks. I'm coasting.

Made it to the gym twice this week. I'm up to 2.8 on the machine, not anywhere close to jogging, but it's a start.

Goal for next week, practice once. Make it to class. (If J is sick, then karma is stepping in, I'm off the hook.)
