For those who are following. My mom had a total knee replacement back on October 29th and all went well. Then I got sick with a skin infection (which, thankfully, is gone now) and been at my mom's beckoned call ever since. I take her to therapy 2x a week when I can and doesn't conflict with kid's activities. Go grocery shopping and even run to the drug store. Boy I will be glad when she is released to drive again (and I'm sure she will too). She's got at least 3 more weeks of therapy and then she is done. But she needs to learn to walk without a walker and switch to a cane for a while. Her pain is finally under control and I think that is helping with her outlook on things.
We are not having the big turkey dinner this year as we just don't feel like having company and doing the big dinner. So take out it is or frozen pizzas (we haven't decided yet). On the stitching front, I've been slowly working on "Joy" by Lizzie Kate. I know it's a simple design but I've either not been home enough, or cold and tired (what else is new). I hope to start something winterish soon to get me in the proper frame of mind for this time of year. Did I mention I need to finally dig my warmer winter coat out of storage. Guess what Kelly is doing this weekend besides cleaning the basement!!
