Thank God For Knitting

I don't have much to say tonight since I spent most the night taking care of the boyfriend and then 10 hours in the ER so I'm exhausted. And I have another night of taking care of him ahead of me. Thank god we have a 3 day weekend coming up so we can both sleep.
And thank god for knitting. If I didn't know how to knit I don't know what I would have done today at the ER. 10 hours there just waiting and talking to doctors and waiting. I decided to bring along the yarn for Anna's charity afghan squares and thank goodness I did. I thought it was more appropriate to knit for others than for myself given the circumstances. And I'm happy to say since this whole illness thing started I finished my first three.

Here are my three. I'm not sure if she needs me to knit all of them or if I can do something a little more fun with each square. Anna, let me know. I loved this really bright happy yarn. I think it will make some one very happy. I also think many sweaters were made from this yarn in the 80's. I can't wait to finish all 20 squares and send them over to her. I have a few other happy bright colored skeins just waiting to be used.

And in case you were wondering he's ok. Just a bacterial infection so as long as I can get him to take his meds and keep the fever from coming back we'll be fine. My dad says I should take a nap now since I'll probably be cat-napping throughout the night while I take care of him. So it's time to take care of both of us (and clean the apartment so the germs don't spread). Sometimes I'm so happy I'm a woman. We can handle anything and we don't need sleep.

Happy Knitting!
