I am BAAACK!!!

My surgery went as planned and no complications. The hospital stay was fine and they have a great staff of nurses and techs. loved them all. They also were quiet at night so I could sleep. My surgery was on Thursday morning and I was released at noon on Saturday. While there I finished an exchange on friday night and I stitched a little bit on the Quilt Sampler on Saturday. One of my nurses loves to cross stitch and she fell in love with the quilt sampler. She also told of a craft store in the city that sells used charts and DMC is .10 a skein.


Sunday, between naps I stitched some more on Halloween Fairy by Nora Corbet. I really enjoy stitching on her.
Then Monday & Tuesday I stitched on the Quilt sampler and now I only have 2 more blocks and some of the border left.
Wednesday was HAED day for me and this is freebie Aurora's Garden. I have 1 column done on page 1. I love the colors.
Today I stitched another page of Twas The Night Before Christmas by Little Old Me Designs. This stitches up quick.
Yes, I am getting a lot of rest. Sleeping when I need it as well.

I also finished listening to My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult and gave it a 5/5 rating. I just loved this book. I am now listening to The 5th Horseman by James Patterson.
In the evenings I watch a movie as well.
This week I have watched:
Gran Torino - it was ok- very slow
Baby on Board- good
Spring Breakdown - good
Georgia Rule - good

True Blood also started its second season on Sunday and I ended up watching it on Monday since I couldn't stay awake.
Tomorrow is my doctor's appointment.

Now I plan on picking up Christmas Ornament stitching since it has been neglected all year. Now I remember why I loved being a SAHM for 19 years lol. I sure do miss it. But I also like my job and having stash money.

Shelleen, I'm SO happy that your surgery went as planned, and that you are back home now. I continue to wish you a healthy and speedy recovery!

As for your stitching. .My Stars Woman!! I feel lucky to get 6 rows done on one of my little projects, and then I see Super Woman in action! I got dizzy just looking at project, after project, and they are all gorgeous!!!

I don't know what they gave you after your surgery, but I'm going to go and tell them, like in the movie, When Harry Met Sally, I want what SHE is having! lol

Enjoy your time off. You deserve it! And now that you are back with us, all is right with the world!

Continue to take care of yourself!!
