Busy Days

It’s been a whopper of a week around here.  Monday I was sick and grumpy.  The day ended with me trying to pull the bed away from the wall so I could plug in the laptop charger, which resulted in me accidentally breaking the bed frame.  I about lost it, and said as much to Sweetie who quietly went in and fixed everything with a ratchet strap and a clean set of sheets while I sat on the kitchen floor whimpering.

Tuesday we spent the entire day in the hospital between 3 different appointments for PB.  She’s fine (her condition has improved yet needs monitoring), but it was a long, slightly frustrating day.  She’s a really resilient kid, and in between behind held down on tables she was able to get excited about playing with toys and exploring the doctor’s offices.  We saw some pretty sick little ones, and I feel so very thankful that PB is healthy; one day at the hospital is nothing in the scheme of things.

While we were at the hospital, I got word that my dear little sister had gone into labor and was in her own hospital about to give birth!  It went smoothly, and I have a sweet little niece to knit for!

Another (slightly less exciting) accomplishment was finishing my spring tee.  I did the last couple of rounds and weaved in ends last night, and now she’s soaking in a bath waiting to get blocked out.  We’re also pug-sitting a little guy named Byron this week, who isn’t quite sure why he can’t chew on all the toys.  Busy week!

Today is sunny and predicted to be in the low 70s.  I think there will be some knitting and gardening time in the backyard while PB plays in her new “tax refund” cottage.

Oh, and registration opens for Sock Summit today; hopefully I can get into a fun class or two.  Anyone planning on attending?

  1. Oh, being at the hospital with one of the kids are never fun. But you are so right – there are those who have it far more worse and must be there for days or weeks…
    Congartulations being an aunt 🙂 And your summer tee have a beautiful spring colour. Looking forward to se it after you have blocked it.

  2. I wish I could make it to Sock Summit, but it’s just not feasible now.

    I so understand your comment about one day in the hospital is nothing in the grand scheme of things. Both of my kids have conditions that require monitoring by specialists, and while it’s a pain, it’s really and truly nothing compared to what other families have to worry about.

    Congratulations on the new niece!

  3. I’m glad to hear PB’s condition is under control…there is nothing like spending a day in a hospital to make you realise, and appreciate your health and that of your loved ones.

    Congratulations on the birth of your niece!

  4. I understand what it’s like having a sick one and being in hospital, seeing other sick kids. One of my girls had a heart op a couple of years ago and now she is fine, but it was the most traumatic and upsetting times of my life.
    I love the spring t knitted top! Looks gorgeous!

  5. That must have been a very difficult time for your family. Glad to hear she’s fine now!
