Have you ever experienced a one step forward, two steps back sort of weekend? Well, that was my weekend. Friday night didn't end for me until 4 a.m. in the freaking morning. Krista's viral infection turned into a full blown allergic reaction to all the meds she was taking. The poor girl ended up looking like a female version of The Thing from Fantastic Four with the mood to match. After two calls to the on-call doctor, stopping of meds and two late night runs to the store for various soothers, (one step / two step - the first) we finally gave up and headed for the ER. The meds for the hives kicked in fast but even today she is still red, if not welty. She saw our family doctor earlier today and I suppose I'll hear about the results of that tonight.
Gus, the family cat, he of the amputated ear, got clearance to head outside again. I'm thinking of putting sunblock on his ears to avoid future skin cancers. With my luck, it will make him sick from fussing with it and licking it off his paws so I guess that is not a great idea. It took two trips to the vet to get the stitches out (90 minute lunch and I arrived 10 minutes into it). Another one step / two step moment.
Don continues to come back from the cataract surgery. He read an entire book this weekend without glasses. I think I am seriously jealously.
And me. Well, I was a crocheting fool this weekend. I met up with Wendy at Borders for the first time. Yes, Tammy and Biene and MaryEllen and Lisa and Cory and Vicci, etc. etc. I managed another meet-up. Wendy is a young woman who knits, crochets, and teaches. She is building a local fiber group and I have managed to get myself in it at the ground floor. Nice gal with two little girls. She was a terrific help and pointed me in the right direction away from some bad habits. I'm crocheting has improved already. No pictures but we meet again in a month so I'll try for them then.
Finally, the weekend is ending. I haven't gotten to Mass yet so at 5:45 I'm heading out the door. I arrive to an overflowing parking lot. Turns out 6 pm Mass was a 4:30 Confirmation Mass this week. Okay, God, I know it is all about intent so I know I won't be in hot water if I actually miss Mass this week. However, here in town we have another parish with one LATE Mass that starts at 6:45 pm. So, falling into my third one step / two step of the weekend, I head home, kick my feet up, head out again 30 minutes later and get home after 8 pm.
The bathroom still needs to be cleaned. This week's laundry is still in a pile. But I sure learned how to perfect my Two Step. So . . . how was YOUR weekend?
