Face forward

“Look at life through the windshield, not the rear-view mirror”. Byrd Baggett I was thinking too much about how I could have changed things, second guessing still. I finally had to motivate, I screwed up but I have to learn from my mistakes and not make them again.

So Monday as a diversion, I finished off the Ice Queen Version A
and the Belle Starr hat.I decided to start the Selbuvotter NHM#7 but hit a snag so asked to join the Yahoo group hoping to find answers.

Tuesday morning I received my approval, searched the archives and there was the answer! I love the internet! I got up to row 7 on the palm/back. I had to stop to take #2 Son to the the ear, nose and throat Dr who did not like son's ear so put him on an antibiotic. We go back for a follow up and hearing test in three weeks. Hopefully he doesn't need another set of tubes.

Today Mom went for blood work and her shot in her shoulder. She said it hurt worse after he was done playing with it than it did before she got there. Hopefully the shot works and she will be able to use her right arm more. She wields an awesome hoe and the garden will need tending soon!!! I was able to finish a dishcloth while in the waiting rooms.

The three bottle babies are getting bigger. I still bring them bottles but they also drink the replacer out of a bowl. Last night a friend agreed to take the two boy's -McFlurry
and FrostyThat's their baby pictures...they don't stand still long enough for me to take new ones!

I am late getting most of it started but ahead on some from last year and all turned out pretty good then so I am not going to worry about it.
Tomorrow is Uncle F's doctor appointments. Before we leave I want to get the greenhouse garden ready to rototill and a rough draft of where I am going to put everything. Hopefully this weekend I can pick up the potatoes and really be ahead of things!
