Last Day

Well today is the last day of the month and last business day of my medical leave. I can't believe the month has gone so fast. We finally got snow on Tuesday/Wednesday, some is still here. It is bitter cold. I don't mind the cold as long as we have snow!!!

Mr80grit caught a cold this week and gave it to me last night. Just what I need to go back to work next week. But I have a few days to knock it out! Busy weekend planned with open houses for the pastor candidate this weekend for senior pastor at HBC.

I think it is funny that after fighting with the short term disability people at work, it finally all came together the last day. I miss the previous company that handled it. They seemed more on the ball. I think my cold medicine just kicked in as I don't feel like I am making sense. So bye for now.

The Best things in life

are knitted.

Well the up side of being off until December 4th is that I am getting my Christmas knitting completed. No pictures yet as that takes more focus than I have yet. I did spend a delightful day knitting at my favorite LYS. Mondays are pretty slow in the way of visitors/knitters so I enjoyed being out of the house without the masses.

It was a beautiful day in the high 60's. But my kind of weather should be coming in any time tonight as a cold front should be here by morning. Master bedroom is on the third floor and with the sunlight was an oven so the a/c was running today, in fact just clicked on. According to the weather channel it is currently 56 outside and by 6 am we should be to 38. Now if snow would come that would be even better.

Have a great Thanksgiving just in case I don't post.

We interupt this life....

for a little surgery.

First you have to understand that I am not a fan of Halloween. I love autumn but Halloween is my least favorite holiday. I did not need any additional reasons not to care for the holiday but I got one. I spent Halloween night in the emergency room of the newest hospital in Salt Lake. If I wasn't in such horrible pain it would have been fun to see it all.

I spent from 6:30 pm until 1130 pm in the ER while they determined what was wrong with me. I had a very sick appendix. So off to surgery I go, (only after they determine that they have everything needed,) While the hospital opened on Monday, ,the OR didn't open until that day. I have never been bumped from a flight but that night I was bumped from surgery twice due to other traumas. I have had two other surgeries prior to this but I have to say this was the worse post op for me. I had wonderful care from the staff but I was really sick this time.

I am now home, doing knitting and trying not to go crazy!!!! I just want it to snow now!! :}
