led astray

I forgot how many of my friends are now mothers.  I didn't even think to wish them happy Mother's Day.  On the one hand, it's a Hallmark Holiday used to sell flowers and jewelry.  But it is also a nice thought to just thank the people with the most thankless job.  So, Happy belated Mother's Day to all my motherly friends!  I called my grandmother for Mother's Day, but she wasn't home...because she was in the hospital!  My sis called me to tell me and gave me the number to her room.  She's getting a pacemaker installed for slow heart beat (her pulse bottomed out at 30).  She's fine otherwise.  She has gotten her own place (thank goodness), and now that he's alone, that shit-heel she was with sees how helpless he really is when she's not there and now he's being all nice to her (I think it's manipulation, but didn't have the heart to tell her, though now I think I should).  Of course she wanted to chat.  It's funny how when I want a graduate degree in something she thinks is "gay", I'm wasting money and time, but if I get a second undergraduate degree in something she approves of, I'm bettering myself.  Will nursing suck?  Maybe.  Will it be useful during the zombie apocalypse?  Indeed!!  Will it be something I can do all day without getting bored?  Most likely.  Will I feel needed and helpful and like I'm doing some good and spreading a little warmth in a cold world?  Quite possibly.  So I move forward with more positive checks than negatives.  True, I'll have to take statistics and chemistry, but it might just be fun.

Q continues to stand for Quality.  :-)

Nephew is still using the blanket I made for him.  :-)

I'm knitting from my stash.  :-)


Many thanks for the mother's day wishes.

Meeeeep with your grandmother! I hope everything goes well.
