Whew & FO

So what was that last post about? I didn't want complain outright, but I felt extremely tired and cranky after that day and started to reflect upon the why of it. And the numbers stood out in my head, especially after that second milk-spill incident. Ah toddlers.

And I have forgotten to mention the results of our daughter's surgery. They removed a lesion from her wrist--it was determined to be the result of a bug bite. We are so thankful that it was nothing serious. This was one crazy bug bite reaction, though...it had been there for more than a month and it looked infected, scabbed, was 2cm wide and antibiotics did not take care of it. Wouldn't you know, the day after Labor Day she woke up with her right eye swollen shut. As she is only still two years old, we are learning how her body reacts to different things. Obviously she has issues with bug bites.

Now, onto better things! I finished my first socks for *me* this weekend. So proud. I know, they're a little manly. They're big (size 11) and dark, but they will be cherished this winter here in Wisconsin. Remember this?

Next on the needles are socks for a dear friend. It's her birthday October 4th and she deserves it.

No prob. We've all been there. Glad your daughter is doing well. These are great socks - maybe they'll be my next pair.

I think they are perfectly lovely! Perfect for our Wisconsin winters tho' I'm denying that winter is coming.

I'm glad the surgery results came out as nothing too serious. Bug bites aren't too fun, though.

It's good to find that out early. When my oldest was little his eye swelled shut becasue of a mosquito bite.

The socks look great, they don't look too large at all.

Oh man, I cannot believe she could have that kind of reaction from a bug bite! That is crazy! I am SO glad it was nothing serious though, wow.
