Well, I feel the bloggy-love. I really do! Getting home last night and talking to PC and seeing my nutritionist… and then reading the comments. Well, y’all are amazing. You made a sad Mini into a happy one. A loved one. So, merci, gracias and thank you. This situation will not remedy itself anytime soon, I am sure of that. And I am not impressed with this person’s ability to “come clean” as they haven’t in the past (bad precedents set already), so please don’t expect any resolution. Something I will share though. This incident upset me,but didn’t shake my foundation. I have been wondering about that all night. Even just as soon as a few months ago, this kind of thing would have sent me into a tailspin of eating and stressing and reliving and self-hate. But, I think I see it as HER problem, not MINE. And I am (slowly) learning to only “own” my own problems. So, is this growth emotionally? I think so. Is it a step toward maturity? Absolutely!

Knitting: I have some knitting (I’ll try to toss in a photo for Saturday’s post).. especially a Bloomin’ Feet sock that *may* be complete tonight. Only one, though. And I am working on the shawl (still) and a new baby dress. I have some plans for Sunday that involve freezer paper and paint--- any guesses?

Oh, and it looks like we might have a front runner for the DC hotel contest.By the way, all the peeps who offered to put us up: thank you! So sweet, but PC snores like a freight train and I just can’t subject anyone else to that. Thank god I am slightly hearing impaired, huh?

It's almost time for a trip on these:

Lemme know if you like/dislike the new font. :)


  1. Growth and maturity, eh? Next thing you'll be wearing bifocals. Heh.

  2. Glad you are feeling better.

    As for the new font, it came up ginormous in my browser...

  3. I like the smaller font better ...and I LOVE the Swan Boats. Some of my best childhood memories are of riding those boats on field trips :-).

    Good for you for recognizing that you don't need to own someone else's baggage!

    Glad to see you're better. As I tell my kids, and I'm not saying your childish, The are jelous of you for something. We can only see the outside of someone, but you have no way of knowing what is going on inside someone. I've been hearing some of my own judgements since being diagnosed with arthritis, it is not an age thing. I try to remember & teach what my parents did "if you have nothing nice to say keep your mouth shut. Unfortunately, too many don't teach that principle anymore.
    Now onto the font front, I'm not sure I'm liking it but it could be the resolution on my computer. But that is my issue, not yours. I'm here to hear what you have to say, make a new(ish) friend and stop lurking & get involved more.

  7. With IE, the Font is HUGE and the lines run together. With Mozilla Firefox, the font is still huge, but the running together thing doesn't happen.

  8. I'm in Firefox on a Mac. It's ginormous for me, too. What does it look like on your monitor?

  9. new font???
    ok, you guys are going before or after all the cherry blossoms fall? yes-it is important! it wasmy favourite part about living there

  10. Glad you are feeling better and can rise above the crap that other people have in their heads. It's not you; it's them.

    And the font is nice; NOT huge on my screen... it's about the same size as the post below it.
    Think good thoughts!

  11. I'm so glad you are feeling better. Congratulations. I like that part about not making someone else's problem yours. I'll have to work on that one.
    I've never been on a swanboat. We've spent way too much time in Boston a few months ago and I'm not wanting to go back for a while. But I will say tht Brigham's hospital is great.
    Have fun on your DC trip.
