Have you any prescription sedatives?
Thank you all so very much for your thoughts and prayers. My husband's surgery was a success and he is home and doing well. He is just resting (like he's supposed to) and trying to remember not to itch his incision. (He doesn't have stitches - they used glue instead. He is going to have a nifty little smiley face scar under his belly button.) Anyway, he is doing fine. Sleeping and taking his medicines, like a good little patient. His mother came to town on Friday to be here to take care of him so I am going back to work tomorrow.
While my husband was having his insides cinched up, I was finishing up this guy:
(Susie, the second pictures is gratuitous, I know, but I posted an extra one just for you!) I didn't think I could make a felted sheep that would be cuter than the gray one but it seems I have. This little black guy is adorable. His head sort of cocks a little to the side like he is about to ask a question. Very sweet. I have once again been blog-neglectful and forgotten to take any pre-felting pictures but oh well. If that is the worst thing that happens all week, I will be fine.
Last night was a peaceful night at my house. We watched Christmas with the Kranks and The Christmas Story. We looked admiringly at my Christmas tree. (Don't worry: it's the picture that is precariously tilting, not my Christmas tree.) We drank hot chocolate and/or apple cider and I worked on my ill-fated Christmas knitting list. It was lovely.
Tonight, however, I am at the mercies of my anesthesia-addled husband and his friends who are here to check on him. Which means that I am being subjected to a special addition DVD of Tommy Boy - with all of its special outtakes and bloopers. There is a whole separate disc of special features. A whole.separate.disc.
Two weeks til Christmas. I am in denial. A question for today: what is your favorite Christmas song? Seriously, I want to know. I'll tell you mine in my next post.
