This has been a really stressful weekend - On Friday the nursing home called - they had sent my mother to the hospital. Her heart rate was very low and they wanted to monitor it. She was there in the Emergency room for hours, they finally got her into a room, but her heart rate did not regulate so they moved her to MICU and scheduled her for a pacemaker which she received today. According to her doctor if everythings goes well and her heartrate stabilizes they will release her back to the nursing home.

If that is the case, then I leave for FLA Wednesday morning and while I will have my computer and will be checking my email, I doubt I will have time to post. I have to tell you I am so tired - I can barely keep my eyes open. I didn't sleep well last night and was up really early so I could head over to the hospital this morning, I was dozing as I was sitting in my mothers room. I was so out of it I dented my car today in the parking lot of Stop and Shop cause I misjudged the space between the column and my car. I am going to watch the rest of the Ranger game and crawl into bed.

Good night.....

For Sale

My brother called to tell me that his sofa and love seat will not fit in his new apt and did I know anyone who was interested in buying them. I told him I would ask around. Soooo - if anyone out there is looking for a sofa and loveseat in a green/rust pattern this is your lucky day - he will take your best offer all you have to do is pick it up this month in Ridgewood, NY. If anyone out there is interested email me at miracole AT yahoo DOT com. I will try to get a picture of the set posted soon - the 2 side tables and the tv entertainment center are possible sales items too.

I saw the world thrashing all around your face.....

Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace:

Yes it has been very long since my last post - I have been very busy at work and haven't finished any knit or crochet projects, though I have made some more jewelry. My Romantic Cardi is almost done - I need one more skein to finish the sleeve trim and it will be done.

The first picture is the thread crochet cardi which is coming along really well - its slow but steady work. I have been taking it with me when I visit my mother at the nursing home, she likes to watch me crochet and it helps pass the time when she doesn't feel like talking. The second picture is the first sleeve and my progress on the second sleeve of A Good Bias. I should have this finished before spring.

I am looking forward to my FLA trip in 2 weeks, I have been shopping a lot for this trip. Thursday night is a formal award dinner - I found this dress for sale on line:

Image hosting by Photobucket I am using some olive chenille I have in my stash - the dress has a very low back so I really need some cover.

We had a meeting at Chelsea Piers yesterday and today - this was the first time I have bee there - wow - I remember when there was nothing there that anyone would want to go to. It was a great place for a meeting and the team building activities where fun. The only thing I didn't do was the rock climbing - I really wanted to but there was not way I was going to squeeze into that harness and hang there with my co-workers staring at my butt! Once I lose enough weight I am definitely going to try that, it looked like a lot of fun.

Tomorrow we are taking the boys to Dave and Busters to celebrate their birthday since we didn't do anything last month. Sunday I am going to lunch with my girlfriends, that will be fun we haven't gotten together in a while. I also need to buy a new pair of jeans for my trip too - I'll try to do that this weekend too.

Well, David is telling me it is bedtime so I will log off now - Just want to say hi to Miss Sterious - I got both your postcards today - they are so cool! Annapurna is the Goddess I most identify with - food and cooking are very important to me.
