The Marriage Ref
After talking with my complicated 21 year old DS on the phone last night, I needed as much mindless drivel as I could get.
I missed Idol but watched Marriage Ref and it was fun. The other shows can wait because they are rerun many times during the week. Marriage Ref was cute. Little slices of married life. Can't understand the woman who thought it was OK to floss her teeth while in bed with her hubby. Gross!
I finished this and gifted it to a co-worker. I told her to please not examine it too closely. Stitching the pieces together can make or break a knitted garment. I don't think it was too bad, but I wouldn't win any prizes for it at the county fair.
I don't need to spend any time deciding what to work on next because I am going to start stitching this cute sampler.
The chart came by way of Teresa and organized by Melissa. There are 22 stitchers scheduled to stitch this one. I really like these traveling charts. Hope that border doesn't make me crazy!
I have just one more thing to blog about. My mom, who is 86 years old and has osteoporosis, broke 2 ribs last week and doesn't know how she did it. This is how brittle her bones are now. Scary. Her own mother was crippled by it and spent her later years in a wheelchair or in bed. I know this prospect frightens my mother. I myself am very aware of the disease and have been having bone scans on a regular basis. Right now I am just taking lots of vitamins and calcium and trying to exercise regularly (I am bad about this). I was on Fosamax for a while but quit taking it because I am concerned about the side effects. I need to be vigilant about my health when it comes to this and am going to be looking for a good doc to help me with this.
Mom continues to live at home with my sister, but I don't know how much longer this will work since my sister works many hours. I fear more broken bones. It will be a difficult future, I am sure.
Thanks for stopping by! If you have any osteoporosis stories, I sure would love to hear them.
