Just a place where I can sit and write my thoughts on my newest passion. . . . . knitting. Hopefully, I will better document my progress throughout knitting and get in touch with others as obsessed as I am!

Look Ma! No Cancer!

OK, OK, so I suck b/c it's been longer than a week and I haven't posted any other info. Y'all probably thought I died in that time (or something close to it). Thankfully the initial round of tests showed no cancer. I think that's what we are going to end up with and I finally exhaled a week ago today. However, I still need more procedures done, specifically a LEEP procedure. Doesn't sound like fun but, at least I've had a "no cancer" diagnosis so far.

Still nervous about this whole thing. My maternal grandfather and all his siblings have died of some sort of cancer or another. Plus I have a great aunt who had breast cancer as well. So, I've always felt as though "it's coming". I was sure that this was IT but, so far so good. The leep will be next friday, the 22nd. I'll try to post sooner rather than later this time, kay?

OK, onto other news. Can I say just two words to you? OLYMPICS ROCK!! We have been glued to the coverage since last friday. Woo hoo! The olympics were always a magical time in my home while growing up. My parents and grandparents would all be into it and we (my brothers and I) would get to stay up late for the opening and closing ceremonies as well as for the major events.

Can I say that in all the olympics I've ever watched, this opening ceremony was by far the best. EVER. Of course, nothing could go this well as demonstrated by this and now this. Really? Not "pretty enough". How does a 7 year old EVER get over that one? Of course, I don't buy it for one minute that all their gymnasts are at least 16 either. Honestly there are a couple that I would say are 13 at the most. Sigh. Oh well, I'll just enjoy the show and not try to focus on the politics of the whole thing.

Speaking of Olympics, I am participating (snicker) in Ravelympics for Team Hopelessly Overcommitted. I am participating in three events ("freeforallfreestyle", "holidayhandball" and "sweatersprint") with the knitting of this beauty for DH. So, I'm into the body of the sweater and I am desperately trying to work on it as much as my poor little carpal tunnel wrists will allow. I also have to try and squeeze in some reading time for my book club. We are reading "The Seduction of Water" by Carol Goodman. So far, it's been a good book but I just don't have the time to do it all.


ooh, I wonder what's on the olympics right now ???

I'm glad to hear the news is promising thus far. No wonder you have been antsy!

Take care,

Yay on the no-cancer diagnosis, may it continue forever!

I was *so* going to make great progress on my Ravelympics stuff during Opening Ceremonies. Ended up not knitting a stitch, due to actually paying attention to the spectacle (!). At least most of the events I watch (diving, swimming) are short, thus don't cut into knitting much, or have commentary (volleyball, basketball) so I don't have to watch quite as much!

So glad to hear this news - and I hope that the procedures go well and health returns! Definitely thinking about you ;)

...I am hopelessly addicted to the Olympics. Can't wait to see more!

Yay for no cancer!

Hi, my name is Jeanne, and I too am an Olympics addict. I had a party for the opening ceremonies. And the next night my out of town friends and I decided that instead of going out like we planned we would just order a pizza because we couldn't pull ourselves away from the men's team finals.... yeah.

So glad to hear the good news and praying that it continues on that track. xoxo

Oh my, girl, I'm so glad you are doing all right. I've been so out of touch! What worry that must have been. {{hug}}

But get this - I'm doing the Olympics thing and I'm on your team! I haven't really been keeping up with all the chat though. Um...there's a LOT.
