After all the amazing cards and get well gifts that Makenna has received over the past week, I'm pretty sure she is plotting her next injury. I'm not sure what the etiquette is for get well presents so I figured I'd just do it the modern Internet way and say THANK YOU!!!!! I've tried to send an e-mail to those we received gifts from but a couple addresses were lost. If you have not heard from me then I apologize and let me tell you that your thoughts were very much appreciated!
She is doing remarkably well and is pretty much back to her normal stubborn self. Although her shoulder is still technically broken, and will be for some time, it's apparently healing because she has nearly full range of motion and only seems to complain of pain when I tell her she needs to pick up her crap. I wish they could bottle that, the healing power of young children, I get a bruise and it stays for weeks, she gets her whole shoulder smashed in and it gets better in days. I'm just grateful that things turned out as well as they did, it could have been much worse and her speedy recovery has really helped me lose most of my mommy guilt.
I'm busy packing for our summer hiatus to Washington State. We are leaving on Sunday for a road trip that will end with a month long stay with my parents. Tom is deploying again through October and I don't feel like sitting around here for the entire time he is gone trying to find ways to keep the girls entertained without spending money. I figured a nice long stay in the Pacific Northwest would clear some of the boredom. At the very least, I can spend some quality time with actual trees and greenness. Packing is a bear though and I pretty much want to bring every crafting thing I own, including my sewing machines, my sewing stuff, and all my yarn. We don't have too much room, with the 90 lb dog and the 2 kids, so I'll have to compromise.
On the knitting front my Ogee Tunic is about done and is just waiting to be sewn together. It seems that seaming sucks. I actually used to like seaming, not so much anymore. I'm not sure why I just didn't knit the thing in the round. Granted, I do hate sewing set in sleeves so maybe I figured it would be easier to just do it flat. I haven't tried it on but I think it will be a good fit!
