Everything is a go for surgery on Monday. The lab work was done last Saturday, I had to see my family physician for a medical clearance and EKG which was done yesterday. I have to drop off the form for short term disability to my orthopedic surgeon today. Nothing else to do but, wait. I am taking 2 weeks off which, all of the nurses I have talked to are very happy about. 7 hrs out of the day consists of either standing or walking. The more time I take to heal the better off I'll be in the long run. Good as new? I certainly hope so. lol
One week will be vacation and the 2nd week I'll use the disability. It will only be 60% of my salary but, it's better than no salary and it will only be for 1 week. I have an appt set up for Monday Sept 27 and will return to work Sept 28th. I am not expecting to get all that much accomplished the 1st week. I do have plenty of yarn to keep me busy. :)
I found out that my lys donates the items that are made to the local food bank here in Newark. They in turn donate the items to different charities here in Delaware. I was not sure how it worked or where the items went so I asked. What better way to find out, huh? I have a plan in mind to try and take a month and, whatever I make in that month, I'll alternate between Bridge and Beyond, Millie in NY and local. I am hoping this works. Best laid plans you know. I'll give it my best shot. I have also started using my Ravelry account to keep track of the things I am making. I have found it so much easier having everything in one spot instead of searching through posts. Please feel free to visit if you'd like.
Thank you to everyone for the emails. I so appreciate them. I apologize for not getting back to you. It has been a little crazy here. I will let you know how things go later in the week as I can. In order to not get up as often, I'll have my laptop available.
Our furnace went the other day and had the repairman in yesterday and couldn't fix. So we are also looking at a new furnace. This has not been a good week. Things will get better though. We new when we bought the house that sooner or later we would need a new one. We were just buying time. Well.. the time has come. Good bye old furnace.. hello new more efficient furnace! I look forward to you being here.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Cooler weather is among us and I am loving every second of it.
Until next time...
