Looking Up

Let's start by saying that I can't even remember what's happened this week. I've had telephone conversations and email discussions that I simply didn't even know I had. If you know me then you know that every year about this time, something totally crazy and expensive happens in our home...surgery or operations of some sort. EVERY YEAR!
2005 I had Ruger c-section,
2006 I had my gallbladder removed,
2007 I had Sawyer c-section,
2008 Ruger had his tonsils removed,
2009 I had knee surgery (something with my knee cap and tendons and such). I don't even ask anymore, I just say, "Fix it, so I can move on with life!" Granted, the babies are much more than operations and such, but it's just how everything falls right into place. I think Jason and I are just being reminded that we need to slow down and appreciate what we have. Anyway, my knee is well on its way to recovery, my children are taking complete advantage of having Grandma and Grandpa K. in town, and I'm anxious to get in the sewing groove again. I just bought my first quilt pattern (Pint-Sized by Thimble Blossoms) and I am so excited to start! My living room is in desperate need of coziness and I thought a quilt would be the perfect solution. Wish me luck on my new adventure!

I hope you are doing ok. I had no idea you had surgery. Please feel free to call if you need anything. I would be more than happy to take the boys if youneed after Gdma K leaves. Best of luck to you.

Hi, I just discovered your blog and shop through MakeItandLoveIt. Looking forward to following you! I hear you on the surgeries...I've had 2 c-sections in the last few years and I'm facing my 3rd back surgery later this month...sigh! But it helps to be in touch with other crafters and friends who've been through it too. Take care! :)
