So that's what they're calling it these days?

Diamond Count = 19

So knitting this endless afghan is a nice thing to do. And honestly I really enjoy knitting it. I thought I would get very bored of it around the third panel, but I'm on panel number four and I'm not bitching too much yet. I keep thinking about how surprised and happy my Aunt will be to get it. I am itching to start Hopeful, but I'll have to wait until next payday to order the yarn for it. (I seem to recall posting something similar before the last paycheck, where does all the money go?). So while I'm enjoying knitting this project it does make for a boring blog. Let me entertain you with a conversation I had with Pork Chop yesterday.

"So Mommy, I need to give you a shot, then I'll put your favorite band-aid over it."

Not looking up from diamond number 19
"A shot? Will it hurt?"

"Yes, a lot."

"Well gee, thanks for sugar coating it."


"Nevermind, why do I need a shot?"

"Because you're sick"

"Ok, I'm ready, give me my shot."

Administers shot, then places pretend band-aid
"Did you see your band-aid, it's your favorite kind of band-aid"

Not looking up from cable
"I have a favorite band-aid?"

"yes it has a picture of you and daddy on it."

Still looking at knitting
"Really? What are we doing?"

"You're makin' lllllll"

Looks up from knitting and drops a stitch


Breaths again
"Oh, what kind of lunch?"

I need to start keeping a list called "Things that made soda come out of my nose!" or "Boy, I'm glad I wasn't drinking when I heard that!" And that would go straight at the top. I also liked when she said it would hurt "a lot" :D
I'm so sorry you're having such a rough time. It sounds like you've got a better handle on it that most people do, though. Remember that you're not alone, and if you ever want to talk or just vent, you can email me any time. (I don't want to leave my address here where the pammers can get it, but there's a link on my blog.)
You've inspired me. I think I may try exercising and see if I feel any better.
