the countdown

A week from this Saturday I'm getting married. Me and my fiance have been together since Sept 1995 and engaged since last June. And we now have 9 days till our wedding. I'm looking forward to marrying him... but this whole wedding thing is just nuts. It's expensive and stressful, and my ankle is still sprained so I'm not having quite as much fun with it as I should be having. But on the upside, I'm marrying the man I love and heading to Italy for 3 weeks... so that is good! :)

Another thing on the upside... I am wearing 2 shoes today. I know, doesn't sound impressive. But this is the first time I have gotten a shoe on the foot with the sprained ankle this month (it's now the 21st day of this month). I look normal till I start limping. So awesome! I was on crutches for 3 weeks and wore this big "air cast" (velcro boot thing) for another week. And now I am wearing shoes!

Now to get rid of the limp in 9 days... wish me luck.

2 year blog anniversary

I almost didn't notice. Sept 8th 2004 I made my first blog entry. Wow I've been knitting for 4.5 years. Started after the holidays in 2002. Time sure does fly. I've been so good. Lately there have been no new projects started. Just work on some old ones. No new photos but these are the projects I've been working on.

And I am finally doing a little walking on my mangled ankle (3 weeks on crutches is so not fun). I think I'll be ok by the wedding (2 weeks from today) and really hope I'm ok before we leave for Italy (Oct 4th). It'll just kill me if we can't do the things we're planning to do on our honeymoon because I was careless and fell down 3 steps. I'm really frustrated with being hurt. But I'm trying to be positive and not all pissed off like I want to be.

still alive... still sprained

Just wanted to let anyone who reads my blog at all regularly that I'm still here. 3 weeks till my wedding and I am still on crutches with my sprained ankle. So please send those healing thought my way :)
