It is finally Saturday – and I am so glad. This has been a really long, rollercoaster week, and I am just exhausted. I wanted to post, though, and I’m going to spend today and tomorrow getting caught up on everyone else’s blog.
My ex-husband was diagnosed with cancer in February – and we got the word this week that his struggle is coming to an end. It has been a emotional week for the boys and I – I don’t think that any of us were really prepared for this, or ready to admit that he couldn’t beat it. I didn’t expect to have the emotions I do about it – we were married a short time (long enough to have two kids though!) and have been divorced for almost 20 years. But it has been very emotional for me, and I’ve spent some time with him at the hospital. If you can please send good thoughts to my kids and my ex to get them through this difficult time.
I think I mentioned that I’ve been waiting to hear if I had a job – they are planning on offshoring the majority of my organization. I was off yesterday but my boss called me last night to tell me that the new executive that was pushing all of this had been let go. So it seems like we won’t be off-shored, and I guess for now things are ok again. It is good to get rid of this major stress – it was really starting to drag me down.
On the knitting front – I have six rows to go on the Shetland shawl so I think I’ll get it done this weekend. I hope to get it done today, blocked tomorrow and then I’ll post pictures. I have knitting group today, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to go – I’m heading to the hospital for a bit, and then we’ll see. I’m sort of drained and I’m not sure I’d be good company. But then again – maybe the company of fellow knitters is just what I need.
One of the other things I’ll be doing this weekend is shredding zucchini. We have been trying very hard to find the zucchini’s in the garden before they get too big, but look at this one..
Crazy. Larry swears it wasn’t there the other day. I have so much zucchini in the freezer already – but I’m thinking maybe I’ll make zucchini cakes today (and maybe some zucchini bread, cake, pancakes, smoothies….). I am already offloading zucchini’s on friends – and I think they are getting scared to see us coming! Hard to believe one plant can produce this much – and so glad we didn’t plant three like last year. If you live in the area, and would like some zucchini please let me know – we have some in every size imaginable!
OK, I’m off – have a good weekend!
