Thanks for the link. I clicked it only to find out that I've already downloaded that book, in 2017!!!

At least I'm consistent.

I'm just sitting here and TV surfing, bored, bored, bored, gotta laugh. I'm gonna try and finish this shawl that I hate. I overdid it yesterday so am moving slow, have a good one,

I can relate to that! Worked on a WIP before hospital stay and needed a new skein to finish. DH brought it to rehab with a new skein from my stash but I just couldn't even get motivated enough to work on it.

Why do you hate it? Color? Pattern? Yarn?

Sounds like a very busy productive day. Don't you just love them? How do you get motivated? I have been trying to declutter my house and just can't get started. sigh any tips will be appreciated.


I will rent you my version of the energizer bunny.

My 44 year old son flew down to FL from DC the day after I was released from rehab facility. Between breaking my foot in July and having major abdominal surgery to remove tumor and kidney, DH having major issues and unable to walk much, the house was a major disaster.

He cleared the mess in my walk in closet, one item at a time, asking me where it "lived". We actually got rid of a lot of stuff. He uses the triage system. Two piles. When did I use it last? Do I really really need/want it? Do I have space to put it somewhere? If yes, keep. If no, out it goes.

Then we tackled the bedroom, my armoire. Same system. When I got tired, he cleaned, straightened, shopped, cooked for the freezer, etc.

In 3 days, everything was organized, cooked, washed, put away, a cleaning lady interviewed and hired and he was gone!

While I was in hospital, then rehab, DH, with his own challenges, had been unable to find the clothing I asked for, and managed to trash the closet and my bedroom. Of course, I had already left it a mess because being non weight bearing, I was in a wheelchair unable to reach the closet and armoire so stuff was already piled up. DH was unable to sort through my T shirts for those that matched the pants he brought me. I finally told him to bring me some of his white T shirts and that's what I wore throughout my 4 week rehab stay. So what. I wasn't doing anything except sitting around and going to PT and OT. Because I couldn't walk, after major abdominal surgery, I needed major help to even get in and out of bed!

My prayers are with you. I wish you the best outcome.

I know what you are going through. I had 6weeks of radiation for a sarcoma next to my right kidney. 6 weeks of waiting for surgery and surgery on Aug 14 to take both kidney and sarcoma out.

Follow up appointment, doctor showed me pathology report. Clear margins. I wish the same for you. Now I wait to make sure nothing got loose like yours.

Best wishes.

I can relate to this. Went through it in 2015. Biopsy then lumpectomy then radiation. All mammograms since then have been negative. My oncologist also put me on an estrogen blocker for 5 years.

Best wishes as you navigate on this journey. Prayers be with you.

So sorry you haven't found that last place yet. You know it will turn up when you finally buy a replacement!!!

Our son flew down to FL from DC to hep get the house organized and cook meals for us to put in the freezer. I was released from rehab the day before he came. I still don't remember all the places we put things.

I was away between hospital and rehab approx 4 weeks. Since DH was facing his own health challenges during that time, the house looked like a cyclone hit it.

Fortunately our son is our own version of the energizer bunny.

I'm thinking of hiring him out!

Love the center of this shawl.

Thanks for the explanation Jessica Jean! I put it in my Ravelry some time ago but have not gotten around to knitting one yet.

You can put the chips in a mesh or nylon net bag.
Go to a pet store to buy cedar chips that are used for bedding in some small animal cages. Less expensive that way.


I've been doing that for years. Much better than moth balls. I buy mesh at the fabric store, cut it into squares, place a handful of chips on a square and staple it shut. Easy peasy.

I do it twice/week and love it. It's a nice gentle, yet effective stretching of the entire body. I used to do regular yoga but getting a little too old for that!


I agree with this. Local assisted living facility runs a class and I've been there many times. It is a great way to get some stretching and movement. Check with your surgeon as to what you can or cannot do after a double mastectomy before you start with chair yoga.

I was in Baltimore that day at a job fair. People were packing their booths and leaving because their bosses told them to go home. People were standing in the lobby downstairs watching the TV and crying. I was frantically trying to call my son who was scheduled to be at the Pentagon that morning working on the computer servers.

I couldn't get through...the cell towers were overloaded. When I finally got home and finally got in touch with him, he said that his meeting had been rescheduled to the next day. The plane went down in the server room!!!

God was watching over us that day but not over my cousin who was in the towers.
