Good News for a change!!!!!

Carl had a cardiac catheterization on Thursday. His Cardiologist thought he had, due to results of a nuclear stress test, blockages in his heart. It turned out he had NONE!!!! WE ARE SO HAPPY!!!!!! I relieved more then anybody can understand. It was so nice to get good news for a change!!! The Dr is going to make him go on a Diet and he has to loose weight but this is better then what we could have been dealing with!!!

Oh Nicholas goes off to Disney next week for the 8th grade field trip. I'm a little nervous. This isn't the first time that he has gone away on a over night field trip but this is the first one that is so far and so long. He is my baby!!!! OK, he is 13 and that isn't really a baby but no matter how old he is he will always be my baby!!!! He will only be gone for 4 days but still that is 4 days out of state w/people that are not me and not family. My baby is growing up!!!!

I'm so excited that I can finally wear Jeans to Work!!!!! I hate Slacks!!!!!! I wear nicer clothes on my days off then what I wear in the office anyway! LOL

UGH!!!! The head

Can't wait until Jan 14th gets here. Go see a new Dr and hopefully he can tell me what is wrong with me....though hopefully he can find my brain if not maybe if I knit a new one he will install it for

Again for the forth or 5th time I am frogging out a sock I started something about this pattern is just killing me I just can't seem to get it. It really simple but I keep screwing it up. It's P1, ssk, K1, YO, K1, YO, K1, k2tog, P1 Repeat around. It works out twice on each needle. I can go for about 4 rows then i screw the pattern up some how and either have to many stitches or not enough. I tried to just have one screwed up row but it didn't work cause it screwed the next row up as well. UGH!!! I am determined to get this pattern though.

I finally got the class schedule for Yarns Etc Greensboro posted yesterday....I was so happy I was going crazy about that...I couldn't get it to post. The program I use kept telling me that if I published it was going to break all my other links. Then one of my dearest friends...thanks Tina you were a life saver.....that I was using old software and the other person who upates the other area of the website probably was using the newest version....DUH!!!!!

Okay ranted enough for today

Raising Kids

I wish kids came with owners manuals UGH!!! We discovered the kids went through our closet a few weeks ago. They took something that belong to them however they had to search through my closet to get to it. Also found out my son had gone out to the storage building and gotten one of our old computers, then tore it apart to see how it worked as well as an old NES. They don't understand what they did wrong...grounding has been fun!!! UGH I hate punishing them but they need to understand that they can't jsut go through other people's stuff. If there is something they need they should ask for it. Plus they can't just take something that doesn't belong to them and take it apart for their own curiosity.
