Crazy Last Days of Summer

Sorry for the lack of recent updates. I have been online a-plenty (just check my Raverly posts!!), but never seemed to find the time to sit down and do blog posts. You'd think I would have at least done the Friday Fill-ins, but......

August was full of barbecues, getting ready for back-to-school (and not-back-to-school for my homeschooled ones), a housewarming, etc. And this past week was full of illness, culminating with my little Molly (8 1/2 years) getting a spinal tap on Friday night! OUCH!! It came back clear for viral meningitis (the deadly one is bacterial meningitis, so it would have been treatable anyway) and a couple other tests, but its definitely something viral. I even got what ever it is and was sick Saturday night with a 103 fever and other symptoms. I'm feeling mostly better today, but still "delicate" in the stomach. Eh... now to wait and see who is next..... I'm pretty sure this is the same thing my 3 year old and 13 year old had first. Still have 5 more people in the house who haven't gotten it. Hopefully my 7 month old won't at all. The ER doctor said she's least likely to get it since she's nursing.

So.... craft-wise, I have been busy with my Traveling Scarves groups, several swaps, some personal knitting (wow... knitting for me!! what a concept!), some Christmas knitting and lots of spinning. I got replacement parts for my Babe Fiber Starter and am thrilled with wheel spinning! Lacks the beauty of an Ashford, but it spins. :)

Anyway, I'm back to trying to post weekly. :)

Welcome back to the blogosphere! Sorry you and yours are under the weather, but good news that it's just a virus-thingy and not something more serious... although, in a family, it does become the gift that keeps giving, doesn't it???

Ouch, I'm sorry to hear you and your family are going through a tough time! Hopefully you'll all feel better soon, and you can get back to blogging more regularly! :^)

Hope you all get to feeling better. When does school start for you?

Prayers for you and family for health!
