I had to climb out of what felt like my death bed yesterday morning to get The Mister to his surgeon's for a check up. By the time I shook off all the sleepy, thank goodness, that monster headache was gone. The doctor's visit did NOT go well. The knee is not doing what it is supposed to. The Mister is scheduled for another procedure in January if he can't get it right through therapy by then. He's NOT happy. I'm not happy either. He still can't drive so I have to haul him everywhere. The doc gave him a super duper pain killer, an anti-inflammatory and a steroid. This should be fun. I spent hours in the car waiting with Pup and I am happy to say that Riddari does indeed make good car knitting. That sleeve is almost done.
After the Doctor's visit we had a grocery pick up and I did NOT get any of the stuff I needed to make some last minute fruitcake. We went straight over to The Mister's noon therapy session and afterwards we stopped by our little Mom and Pop grocer and they had just what I needed. I guess making fruitcake is back on the list for today.
We left the house at 9 and got home at 3. It was a long day. Poor Pup got walked to death. She was out like a light for the rest of the evening. So was The Mister. No card making yesterday. I did get the Santa puzzle started in the quiet. We've been putting this together every year since 1995. I've even got a back up that I found on Ebay a few years ago. It's the one holiday non-negotiable-and I'm off to a very good start.
As for Tiny Needle Tuesday, I did get all the green fill done. Gobble Gob is now packed away until next fall while I work on........
