2 Santa's and some other stuff I'm too overwhelmed to mention (PLANET!)

I think it's fixed now!

So I had a big birthday this past October and my family threw me a party.

One of the cool gifts I got from Bezzie is this yarn bowl. Very cool!

iPad annoyances

About a month ago my iPad underwent a complete system upgrade. I synced it, updated it, re-synced it and now everything is in the wrong place, my playlists are messed up, and the photos I have on here aren't what I used to have. I like publishing from the iPad since I always have it with me, but before I can show you what I've been up to the last year I need to clean everything up.

Which may take days because I can't sit for too long.

More fun to come, I promise; until then another kitty photo!

I forgot I still have a blog

Really I didn't, but there has been a lot of crap going on in my life and so I felt there was no reason to bore you with moaning and groaning about pain about chronic back pain.

We'll start off small and cute: Fanny is a big girl now!

So, I think I have a Boy Friend

Remember this? The guy who lives out of state, who I get along with really well? That relationship has stepped up several notches.

We talk every day and have been for a couple of months now. I either get an e-mail, or we IM, or I get a phone call, or like yesterday, all three. When we do talk, our conversations average about an hour.

But there’s the distance thing. And he doesn’t like cats. And I have a kitten all picked out because they’re ready to be adopted. And he’s a smoker. God! But I guess none of that matters since he’s at the other end of the country, and neither of us is moving any time soon.

He’s invited me down to visit. I’m thinking about taking him up on it.

(I know! I promised photos of knitting and kitties. They're coming.)

Plans Change and Disappointment Ensues

I’ve been stressing out about a big thing in my life that I’ve been mulling over and “processing” (thinking about obsessively).

I need another surgery on the knee I just had surgery on last summer. It’s been making a horrible crunchy noise for a while now. The doctor was convinced that once all the muscles in my knee were strengthened up again, the new knee cap component would align properly and the crunching would stop.

That didn’t happen.

So the last time I saw my ortho surgeon (a month ago), he said that I needed arthroscopic surgery to clean out the scar tissue and fascia that has built up and is catching under the knee cap. (Oh and Yes! It’s painful!) He’ll also cut the tendon that holds the knee cap in place, because my tendon didn’t tighten up like it should have (and does in every other human who has this surgery!) BUT, while he’s in there looking around, and when he cuts the tendon, he may decide that the patella implant needs to be moved because the cutting of the tendon won’t help on its own. That means he’ll cut the knee open again, and put in a new knee cap component.

The crappiest part about all this is that I don’t get a real vacation again this year. It’s like the 3rd or 4th year in a row that I won’t get to go to NC for the family vacation. But the knee needs to be taken care of.

I’m so bummed out.

I promise knitting content, kittehs and the present I bought myself in the next posts.
