Work in Progress

Pretty much says it all. Everything is a Work in Progress until it is done.

Couple of different things.

1) I hate having no money. We are ok, it's tight but we are making it. Wish we had more but who doesn't. (DL-Don't say anything to Dad)

2) This is my mystery sock! I'm almost done with it. About half way to the toe. Need to get busy and finish it and start the second one.

3) How could you hate this face? Pretty easy after he eats yet ANOTHER ball of yarn! (yes, DL, he got yours too! Don't worry he didn't mess it up.) This is Boots (he is a Beagle), he belongs to DS. He really is a good puppy and someday he will learn to leave things alone.

Everything is fine so far.....

So far so good. DH is recovering nicely from his surgery and there doesn't seem to be any trouble. He is missing a lens in his glasses which is just weird. He stayed home Thursday and slept almost all day but went to work Friday. Today we went Geocaching all day (more about Caching later). And tomorrow we are taking DS to the Circus! Plus side - we are going to the circus Minus side-We are going with the In-Laws! LOL No really, I like them. I'll post about it tomorrow!

Hope everything turns out ok......

DH is going to have eye surgery tomorrow (today?). He has catarac that they are going to remove. Yeah he is really young to have one too. He is only 41. He has just been in bad health here lately. Nothing bad really......High blood pressure (has had that for years) and about 5 months ago we found out he has diabetes. Sometimes it feels like he will never be health again. I know he will be and we do the best we can. We are trying to get a little healthier. So anyway, I was just letting you guys know about this. I'll post tomorrow and let everyone know how it goes.

DS's test are done!

And he is FINE!!! Well, he doesn't have CP at least and that was the main thing. The Dr tested his reflexes for quite a bit (long enough for us to start wondering) and then he ran up and down the hallway for a bit. She said that while he did have some signs of CP the biggest indicator (drawing his arm up when not thinking about it and spazdite reflexes) weren't there. So she would guess that the feet issues are more of an ortho problem than CP. Woohoo! SO now we are off to the ped ortho doctor. Which we have an appointment for but it will be about 2 months. I tried to get in sooner because we need to order some inserts or AFOs (braces) and they need to tell us which kind to get. Already have the Rx for them just waiting to get the ducks in the row.

Mystery Sock Knit A-long!

The main reason I started this was so I would have a place to post updates on the 2nd KAL I've joined. It's called the Mystery Sock KAL. What you do is find a sock pattern on the web with no picture of the finished sock. Then using you chose of yarn, you knit it. I choose KnitList Get-Together Cable Sock. I'm using Caron Simply Soft in Country Blue. Yes, it's an Acrylic but I'm going to just use it as a slipper sock. I'm going to be using Addis #3 DPNs for the cuff and then change to Boye #5 Circulars for the rest. I started tonight and I think I should make good time. We have until Nov. To finish so I might be able to do it. Wish me luck. I'll have pictures in a couple of days when I have more than 2 rows on the needles! LOL

Home again....Home again......

Well, I have made it home from my parents. I've been gone for almost 3 weeks. DH is VERY happy I'm home. Hopefully I'll have some pictures of everyone before too long. I'll talk to everyone later!

Happy Birthday, Big Sister!!

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!

A little about DS

I have one child. He is 4 1/2 years olds. He is also developmental delayed. DS is about 9-12 months behind in most areas. Which is a huge step up from when he started therapies he was 18-18 months behind in most areas. Biggest trouble area is Speech. He was largely non-vocal until he turned 3. He did point and make sounds but that was about it. Very, very smart. DS has been going to a pre-school for Special Needs kids for a little over 2 years. Next year he will move in the pre-kindergarten class with the others. When he first started he was wearing AFOs (braces on his legs) but then he started Physical therapy and got to the point wear he didn't need them. But his PT told us the other day that she wanted to put him back in shoe inserts. It's been a year so that has been a little hard. They also noticed that his Fine Motor skills has dropped a bit. So now we will add that into the mix of therapies. That is hard also. Next week, we will start testing to make sure there are no "serious" problems before he starts kindergarten next school year.

Wish us luck that there is nothing wrong.

A little more about me.

Who is Ltfightr? My name I go by in most BB is Ltfightr(Light Fighter). Back in the day, I was in the SCA as a Rapier Fighter (called at the time "Light" fighting). The SCA is The Society for Creative Anachronism ( My name is Lady Diana of Graywood, AoA. I lived in the Kingdom of Ansteorra (Texas). I meet DH ( I already knew him) because I was in charge of food at an event. He was a restaurant manager who was trying to get me to go out with him. We had meet about a month earlier and we were beginning to be friends but after he donated most of the food that more or less hooked me! LOL And it didn't help that the jerky current boyfriend was being jerky (ok an A$$ really) and that was the straw on the camels back. So we broke up and about a month later got together with DH and it has been 10 wonderful years!

First time for everything!

Well, here I am. After thinking about this for months and then joining a KAL (Knit A Long, for some of you), I have gotten a blog.

So! In case you are wondering, I am Diana. I have a 4 year old son, a husband, a 6 (almost 7)year old Pom named Ra, and a 9 month old Beagle puppy named Boots (who belongs to DS). I started back to work last year in one of the local middle schools cafeteria (yes, I am a Lunch Room Lady).

More to come later.
