I wanted to start out the new year with an entry of good things. 2009 had a lot of negativity and I was ready for it to be gone. However, thinking about the negatives, I found some positives.
Mom did have cancer. But it was caught fairly early and, after some scary, life-threatening side effects from chemotherapy, she survived to radiation and now is on the down swing of therapy. Her hair is growing back. I was able to work from home for five months and will be working from home 2 - 3 days a week until she's really on the mend, or some other care-taking solution presents itself.
My older son seems to have found some direction in his life - finally. He'll be starting EMT training next week. He has already qualified as a volunteer firefighter and hopes to ride ambulance duty when his EMT training is complete.
I knit a lot of hats for Christmas - all were well received! Alas, I forgot to take pictures of every one.
Here is the Meret I made for my son's girl friend... she's hardly taken it off since she got it! And would like two more - one in purple, one in black!
I shall have to hog-tie the boys to get their hats photographed!
It has been a pretty good Friday. I hope to continue Shelly's Good on Friday posting this year. I'll try to find good outside myself as the year goes on!
Happy 2010, dear readers!
edited because I had grammar/spelling goofs. There may be more. I apologize to the grammar police in advance! :)
