Almost normal again

Today was Clara's first full day at the Day Care center - my brother said she got home okay and was ok. So it seems this will work and I can get my life back it relatively normal again. Yeah! I can't tell you how exhausted I have been - I think I have gained about 20 lbs since my brother was in the hospital - I eat my way through stress - not good! Hopefully things will calm down now and I can relax. I am glad she is happy there because she will be staying there while we are on vacation. They have a respite program there for just such occasions.

My vacation is in 2 weeks and I am really looking forward to it this year. We leave on Sept 6 and fly here, we are staying here. From there we are driving here and up to here and finally here and from there we fly home. I am hoping to meet up with another knit blogger or two while there.

I am working steadily on my scarf exchange scarf - I want to finish it this week so I can mail it out before I leave. I have indulged in some retail therapy and purchased this in the buttercream color. I also bought this and this in vanilla and peach respectively. I have picked out a few things from GOL that might work with these.

I think I am going to soak in a hot tub then work some more on my scarf - later........

Wow! What gorgeous yarn purchases! I'm drooling over here... hope it doesn't affect my computer :)

I'm so glad things are working out with your mother; it's an unenviable situation you've been in, so it's nice that you'll get some time to relax.

I hope you enjoy your vacation. It looks like you've got a lot planned! And just think... maybe there'll be a package waiting for you when you get home!

Gah! I forgot to leave that the last comment was from me, your Secret Pal. But at least now you've got two comments, right?

Hi Colette. I am so sorry things have been rough for you lately. I'm glad you've found a care center for your mother and hope your brother continues to improve. Have a great vacation.

Wow just love your yarn. I can understand about your mom, I just lost mine in May and had to care for her for years. Hope you have a great vacation. Just love the pics of the wine and tub.
