Happy 2010!

Hope you are all having a GOOD Friday.  I have been knitting and care-taking and entertaining and cooking and baking and playing games on Facebook.  Blogging?  Not so much.

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!  :)

happy new year to you too!!!! just saw your comment on ravelry and had to pop in and say a personal hi!

so sorry to hear about your mum! same thing going on here for my mum....she had a melanoma cut out and radiotherapy, then it came back so they cut it out again and took more of her leg, then it came back in her hip so they did a full hip replacement and part of her thigh and then after she was recovering from that it came back again in her lymph nodes so a few weeks ago they cut that out too! It's so hard to see and care for your own mother when you see them so sick but sounds like she has a great helper in you!!!!!!!!!!!!

take care and look forward to seeing your knitting this year!
