Calm before the Storm

This has been a very busy month. I need to do some serious blog reading and farming (Farmville) on facebook ;) but there has been very little time to do anything let alone my poor neglected knitting.
We moved the college DD back to her school last weekend. As you can see, it's cramped quarters. She shares a triple in a very tiny room. Thank goodness she's an organized person (unlike her poor mother).
See the guy in the picture? The one who is watching the college basketball game while the DD and I work? lol
Today is his birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUBBY!!!!!! We don't have any plans today besides preparing for the "next" round here. (explanation later)

Our eldest son, DIL and granddaughter met up with us at the college. They invited us to stay with them for a few days but we were not prepared (no clothes, no one to keep a close vigil on Mr. Bettis etc) Finally we worked it out that I would stay and DH would head home.
We went for a quick shopping trip to gather a few necessities before we headed the short trip to their home.

They're remodeling their home and here's Son #1 preparing dinner the first night. I baked cookies one afternoon and I can't rave enough about their kitchen. I could hang out in that room all day and never tire of it.

I've been hesitant to put my granddaughter's picture on the internet for obvious reasons so when I took this picture I thought it was okay to post. Here's MC. She's a very pleasant and happy baby girl. Mr. Milo watches on. I had a wonderful time with this family and hope we can enjoy more time together in the near future.

About the next round:I've been dealing with a lot of medical testing, doctor visits etc.
I'm having surgery on March 29 and I will be laid up for a while. There's a lot of medical issues to be dealt with concerning this surgery but there's no choice.

In the meantime I will be nagging the hubby on his toes. I'm not a good patient when I'm down. I can overlook a dust bunny on any given day but let me be incapcitated and that dust bunny can get on my one nerve...LOL
I have my computer and knitting waiting when I'm ready so I'll post when I can. I have my sense of dry (sarcastic, as the family would say) humor. So bear with me as we overcome one more hurdle. There's bound to be something funny through all this mess.

Can I just say something about 2010?'s not for innocent ears......LOL

Oh my I am sorry to hear about the surgery and I will keep you in my prayers. Tom and Ed can exchange tips on how to take care of us invalids, I had 2 good days this week and am down again, I am reluctant to blog about it because I don't want to come off as a whiner.

Happy Birthday to Ed---and glad you had a good visit with your family

lol You sound just like me. I can deal with the messes fine until I'm not "able" to deal with them.

Email me and let me know what's going on, okay? Keeping you in my prayers.

OH! And Happy Birthday to Mr. Bettis' Human! Hope you have a fabulous one!!! :)

I hope all goes well with that surgery. I figure it this blog, I can whine all I want.

I am knitting between naps these days...oak tree pollen...enough said.

If nothing else, hook a harness to Mr. Bettis and make him pull you around on a rolling chair. :) You can yell mush to him...although he might think you are talking food.

Best wishes on a speedy recovery!

Belated happy birthday to your dear hubby. I do remember that Facebook had mentioned it last week, but being unplugged for a couple of days addled my mind...
