Last Wednesday (last week) was boring- I slept most of the day, then hung out with Yannick and watched TV at night. This past Wednesday (yesterday) was boring- I worked most of the day, then hung out with Yannick and watched TV at night. Nothing more to say about the Wednesdays.
Last Thursday (last week) I met with my surgeon for the ultrasound results. The good news: I’m cleared for surgery! My rectus muscles on both sides of the abdomen are bruised, but that will go away with time, and there’s nothing to do for it, and no reason not to get this hernia fixed once and for all. We’ve rescheduled it for April 4th, which was both the first available date, but also far enough away for any swelling to go down. That delays me by about a month, but at least that’s all it is.
I always leave the surgeon’s office feeling beat up, what with all the pushing and poking he needs to do to feel his way around my belly, so I went back home and took a nap until it was time to pick up the kids.
As for this Thursday (today), nothing special’s going on. My mom picked the kids up from daycare and we got to hear all about Jakob’s trip to the Cabane à Sucre (sugar shack). My aunt (who I knit the hat for) is in town, and came by to visit with her foster daughter. And now the boys are in bed and I can finally get a chance to share my latest pattern with you!
This pattern is a great way to dress up a child’s bedroom or playroom with a fun, personalized touch.
It takes less then a ball of yarn per car, and you have the option of making them with or without windshields.
The pattern is available through Ravelry (even for non-members). More information here (my site) or here (Ravelry page), and also through Knit Pick’s site here, where you can put the pattern together with yarn to make your own customized kit.
I hope you like it! A girls’ version is coming soon!

PHEW! Now we’re all up to date 🙂 Glad you’re ok, glad you have a new date to *er* look forward to ;P – it is duly noted on my calendar so good thoughts for rapid healing will be winging your way.
The pennants are, of course, adorable. Bravo 🙂

What a great way to dress up a kid’s room. I love this new design of yours!
That sucks that you always leave your doc’s office feeling beat up. Hopefully this will all be in the past soon.
