Now that I'm done doin' my happy dance, I think I've been bitten by the knitting bug.

I knit all sorts of things for folks for Christmas and have the knitting itch something fierce today. Glenn's son and his wife are expecting a son on February 1st and I've gotten the notion that I should make a blanket for him. I've already made all kinds, not knitted, of baby things but what's one more?! Grandchildren are to be spoiled.

I love to knit. It's therapeutic for me and I have the pattern, the needles, and the yarn so.....

Knit one, purl one............

Here I go!

Good thing for me, Glenn was a medic in Vietnam and has been giving me the shots at home. He's does a far better job than any of the nurses. I never knew when he'd given me my shot. He could teach the nurses a thing or two.

So, why the elation? He just gave me my last shot!!!! Check off another milestone in my recovery. Yeah!!!
Maybe Glenn should teach a class. My patients always responded well to me when I gave them their shots.

He did an awesome job. In, out and done before I'd ever realized he'd begun. He must've been well liked when he was a medic and it appears he didn't forget after all those years. He told me that when he got out of the army, he was qualified as a registered nurse. He wasn't able to pursue the field because of the educational restrictions that were in place at the time. He would have had to have gone to Washington state in order to get fully certified. For many reasons, that was not possible. Oh, well, at least I'm able to avail myself of his fine skills.

I'm about to get some computer bits and bobs for Stirling and I'll stop at the liquor store too. We're out of wine. We're also out of tequila and almost out of triple sec. Gotta be able to make Margaritas.

I got a 5-Port 10/100 Desktop Switch. It was supposed to be 8 ports.

I showed the guys at the store the printout of their web page with what I needed and they gave me the wrong one. The boxes look almost exactly the same. I'll have to go back tomorrow and exchange it. Stirling might need the 8 port one tonight. He's working on a deadline.

I was successful in getting the booze.

Beautiful tree! Ours was up & decorated when I got home a little while ago. The reach in cooler broke down at work, again. Had to stay late & clean it out, again. Enjoying listening to my daughter play piano, best part of my whole day.
