O.K. -- I failed in my attempt to post every day in November. Yesterday, I just took a day off. Although I didn't meet the challenge of posting every day, I did post ALMOST every day, and I'm satisfied with that.
On Monday night, after Fee went to bed, I saw a mouse in the kitchen. In all the years we have lived in this house, we have never had mice inside the house. In the attic, we've had rodent trouble before, but not inside the house. I left a note for Fee. He left early the next morning to go to south Louisiana, but he did respond to the note!I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. But if anyone wants a mouse please let me know, my instructions are to give the mice away. Now Fee is out of town, and I'm alone with the mouse/mice. I have not seen the mouse again, but I know he's there lurking.
Yesterday morning I went to the doctor. About the failure to take the thyroid meds, he just looked at me intently and said, "You know that was a mistake, don't you?" Oh, yes, I know. Really, I do. I'm still recovering from that mistake.
He gave me a prescription for some sinus medicine and some Lyrica for my neck pain. Some days I am literally "a pain in the neck." The Lyrica is for nerve pain and has given me more range of motion in my neck and has reduced the pain considerably.
After the doctor, I dropped of the prescriptions at the pharmacy, then went out to see Laddie. He was doing well. This is a great relief. We've had two weeks of a calm, sweet temperament. We looked at a National Geographic book and talked about the pictures. As well as possible. He didn't protest when I left after about an hour, just kept looking at the pictures.
Went by and picked up the prescriptions, then home about 1:00. Took the Lyrica and the sinus med, read for a little while. Then slept from about 1:30-4:30. Both medications can cause drowsiness. Oh, yes, believe it. I generally sleep no more than 6-7 hours a night and sometimes less. Now, I sleep all the time. Bah!
I did piece the back of the quilt and laid it out with the batting last night. Now, I just need to put the top on and pin it.
Amelia called yesterday to tell me about her doctor's appt. The baby has dropped and other indications led the doctor to say the baby may be here in two weeks. That would be wonderful as then they could be home for Christmas instead of in the hospital on Christmas Eve, which is her due date. So the baby quilt is now a priority.
Have you been keeping up with Sew, Mama, Sew? I check in every day. The only thing I've actually made was the lunch bag, but there are links to such great tutorials for such a wide range of things. If you haven't been there, click that link!
