3 broken bones and a surgery

My husband survived his ankle surgery. He is now learning and trying to deal with the pain of recovery. The blocker wore off Saturday evening and he has been uncomfortable since. He is learning how to stay on "top of the pain" rather than wait to be in pain and take the meds. He has also found that he can enjoy movie after movie on Netflix! lol this helps to keep his mind busy and not focus on the pain.
I was able to go sew for a good while yesterday. I needed it! I began looking for a specific UFO from about a year and half ago....and then I thought well, lets look for a different one....I could not find the first one.........I found the second listen, I have probably 23 UFO's this is not putting a dent in my UFO number.  I was able to piece and put borders on it. Just a lap size quilt. If I can figure out how to use my new LG 3g enlighten smart phone I could download the pictures.....That quilt is on my design wall, I should probably make a quilt back for it. Get that quilt moved to the next pile which would be my binding pile.
I found another quilt that I began working on 2 years ago. I squared up the finished blocks and began piecing the rest into blocks....progress! This quilt makes a nice quilt for any room because it looks scrappy. I can't wait to finish this one.
I have some deadlines looming over my head, but I'm not inspired to work on them...not good!
Went to bed around 10:30 thinking that PBS Masterpiece Theater was on...I am enjoying watching Downton Abby! It was not on!! something was on its place. I went back out to the kitchen to chat with my sons for a bit, then went back to bed around 11. My husband had worked his way into bed, pillows and all to prop that leg up and he found that Downton Abby was on at 11!! YIPEE!! Needless to say we watched it!
Well, I'm gonna tell the world that I'm going to be a grandmother! My step-daughter is going to have a baby! I'm so excited, she is about 4months and is feeling the baby moving often. I've decided that I want to be called Me-maw. Me-maw was my favorite grandmother when I was a kid.
Well everyone, have a wonderful day!!


  1. How did he break his ankle? A couple of years ago my husband broke his by tripping over the dog and got a "trimalleolar fracture".

  2. I guess I should have posted that my husband fell on the ice in our driveway. He had just walked outside and down he went. Poor guy!

  3. Congratulations on being a grandma ... or I should say Memaw. ;-) I'm a Nana. And I'm here to tell you that there is NOTHING better than being a grandma (although quilting comes a close second - ha!). Again, congratulations.
