This is most of the yarn I selected. I have 3 partial skeins that will be going into a shawl and then 2 skeins of a cotton blend for dishcloths. My friend took 99% of the Vanna yarn for her toy making. I still had over 1/2 of a bag full of yarn which I took and caked up to make it look nicer and neater.
Once our lives get back into some semblance of order, I am hoping to be doing more knitting than is happening right now. We have had 4 days of no company and we are once again having our house filled with relatives. It is all my hubby's side of the family coming to visit his mother.
My MIL is still in the hospital with her stroke. Her brain is still bleeding and 2 days ago she had a heart attack. (not sure how severe at this point, tests still being done.) We thought we would be loosing her soon so the call went out to all the family to come and visit. Our son from Seattle arrived yesterday as well as a brother from New Mexico. The son leave today and a sister arrives from Colorado. Not sure who else or when the others are coming. I have 2 nieces arriving today also. Most everyone should be back home by the end of the week and then we can try and settle into some kind of new normal.
We think my MIL will be discharged this week to a skilled nursing facility. I am searching for one that I approve of. So many of them have bad reports. We still need to get her strong enough so we can transport her back to Nevada. Not sure if this will happen or not. The Dr's said we could loose her as early as in 2 weeks depending on her heart and brain. Hence the reason everyone is coming down now to see her.
As for me and my grief..................that got cut really short because of all that is happening with my MIL. My mom is still in storage (That sounds so awful). Seems the Medical Examiner wants to go over her records before he releases her for her final destination. I am a bit upset and angry over this. I have calls into the ME's office and I will continue to call daily until I have an answer as to why they are doing this to a 90 year old woman. They will come to know my name before this is all over.
Hubby has left to go to Mass (I went last night). Brother in Law is up and having some coffee with me. Think I will go and work some more on my sock and try and figure out how the day 'might' go. My bullet journal has really helped me with keeping my 'to do' list straight and journaling my feelings.
Until next time.....................Happy Crafting!
