Is It Monday Yet?
What a tiring weekend! I started off Saturday morning in Preston county and it was pretty interesting - I got a history lesson complete with pictures. Pisgah is named after a biblical mountain by the way - established in 1881 and at one time during the height of the timber industry boasted 3 hotels, a store and a post office. Then it was off to Pennsylvania for a 3 hour infusion which was also fun as the patient has a houseful of dogs so once I start his IV then I mess around with the canine residents and knit. By then I was getting a bit tired, especially since I've been running hard all week - and my phone rang. Another patient was home from the hospital so off I was to another town and walked in the door around 5:30. I set up one appointment for the morning (this time down past Clarksburg) and then the second one - wrong number. I tried to map the address and it kept coming up it didn't exist. So this morning while heading out for visit #1 I was playing phone tag for visit #2. The whole upshot was I went to a similar sounding road and there the patient was. So I had the wrong phone number and the wrong address, BUT while waiting for everyone to call back I got some nifty Leaf Green mohair blend yarn on clearance so it wasn't a total washout. I will be back in Bridgeport Tuesday and Wednesday so I can scarf up the remaining skeins. If I bring too much yarn in the house at once the Yarn Hater gets all hysterical and starts going on about how much yarn I have, how I could quit my job and just knit and never reach the end of it, that we have yarn spilling out of drawers and closets, sigh - totally cuts into my yarn buying. So I bring it in a bit at a time and it cuts down on the Tramatic Yarn Syndrome someone has going. He is SO difficult sometimes. I think I'm going to ask to get paid for a few of the visits and then take the 20th off - that's mine and David's 25th anniversary - can you believe that? Especially since we come from two entirely different cultures - (he hates yarn and I love it!)
