1) For an awards nomination:
I humbly accept my blog’s nomination to the
I have no idea who nominated me. Whoever you are, thank you! I didn’t even know there was an award happening. Thankfully, my stats directed me to the nomination. And yes, even though I don’t blog about it much, I am a homeschooler. Voting is open now. If you’d like to, you may vote here. Thanks!
2) For a trip to the copy center: My pattern sold out this weekend! I am again humbled. I didn’t expect it. The boys and I went to the copy center and I’ve relisted some more.
3) For ventral hernia repair: Yep, you read correctly. I’m short and my babies were all big. At some point the fascia between my abs in the front thinned and tore. I imagine it’s like spreading pizza dough in a pan. You’re spreading and spreading and one spot gets thin and all of a sudden there’s a hole. How did that happen, you ask. You take some dough and patch it up. Well, I’m going in on Wednesday to have the hole stitched together. I had the option of having some plastic mesh put in, but I declined it in favor of actual stitches. It’s a bigger surgery, but I’m allergic to so much stuff I just wanted to avoid finding out if I’m allergic to the mesh after it’s in me. It’s a weird feeling going into the hospital relatively healthy knowing I’m going to come out feeling yucky. Matt’s mom is coming into town to help and friends from church are bringing meals. I am blessed that we are well taken care of!
I’ve got one full day to get some crafting in. Who knows? I still may have something to post before I go in. That would make me feel really good. 🙂
