Catching Up with my Tatting Friends

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][COLOR="#2e8b57”] [SIZE="4”] Hello All! Well, during Aug-September we moved from our big home in NM to a much smaller home in (Greenhaven) Sacramento, CA. It is 1,300 sq ft; my son-in-love spent over a month getting it up to ‘his’ standards; he owns a home renovation business here (RB Construction). I gave him a budget and turned him loose. It is truly like a model home and so clean! A lot less storage space is my only challenge.
We’ve set up a new physician’s team; so am now in dialysis on a regular basis. Which was the reason we relocated from New Mexico. Our new Doctor set me up for all the tests I needed to have, so on my ‘off’ days from Da Vita, I go for mammogram, lung test at the hospital (he is trying to figure out why I HAVE a breathing problem), and still having troubles getting a working fistula; have a catheter just below my collarbone in the mean time.
I haven’t tatted. Found my thread and shuttles, but need to find a box of books! LOL Plus just no time for a month or so, running all over. Deciding where to put what. Plus the first month I was just too tired after riding almost 1,200 miles in a 26’ U Haul truck...bounce, bounce, bounce...Not the air ride they promised. By the tine we arrived I had blood in my urine. Not good. But that went away after a week or so and I began to get my strength back.
As of today, I’m down to 184 lbs (from 222 last year this time), have increasing energy, get hungry and no nausea. Much better.
Daughter took me to her hair stylist (Holly) and my hair is recut in its angled bob; inspired by the Fall colors in the leaves....I went a coppery-red in color! Woo Hoo Then we went to have a mani-pedi at her ‘Pedicure Palace” in East Sac. We are to have a girls day out every 6 weeks! That will be FUN! She has a very tight work, home, play schedule and that Saturday has been her ‘me day’ for about 10 years. Now it is Me and Mom day...I’m tickled pink!
That catches you up. I’m behind in my monthly bookmarks...I THINK from October thru November...I’ll have to check. And, I’d better begin a bookmark! LOL
see ya later gator. . . .
If you want my new addy or cell number; or both...send me a private message. bev
