So I have an excuse to be lazy

All I had to do is hop over to Laurie's Crazy Aunt Purl for my excuse, It says right their in my horoscope that I will be tired in August (Libra). No I head to the doctor for a physical. Everything came back normal except I have Hypothyroidism. So I'm tired, and fat, and overwhelmed, and my skin is dry, and my hair is brittle (Yeah like I'd notice after the great job I did dyeing it) and I thought this was just me with a few "character flaws". Lazy and lack of organization would always come to mind. The good news is it is something treatable. I picked up my prescription tonight and will start taking it tomorrow morning. I'm looking forward to an upward swing in how I feel, I think you can tend to take feeling bad or not well for granted, and blame it on other things. Woo Hoo, maybe I'll have so much energy I'll get 5 things done for the August Challenge. Poor Esther has started saying she can't do things because she's tired. That kind of hit home as those little kiddos sure can be a mirror of what's happening around them.

P.S. The What is it Contest is over. It will be a backpack style purse. I'm kind of just crocheting away and making pieces to match a style of purse I really like.

UPDATE: Erin with the first guess was right! Manda and Mitchypoo, I'll try emailing you too, but send me your addresses, I'll get some stitch markers to you too!

August Challenge

Cindy, and Knitting Park has set up a knit a long called August Challenge. We are trying to set goals to complete two projects in August. Of course I didn't read the directions correctly and decided to do three. Below is a picture of my three. The blue is a Lopi Sweater, very quick as I'm doing it in the round. I messed up a bit on the sleeve so will need to rip back to the ribbing. Such a surprise that Diamond Patch (upper right) is in there! :-). The last is a crocheted project. I'm not going to reveal what it is yet, I may want to do a contest on my blog. I'll set that up tonight or tomorrow.

The Houseboat trip was a lot of fun and relaxing (except for the afternoon I spent motion sick, bleah). I was also amazed that in the midst of making mad dashes to the bathroom to puke, helpful family members and friends kept asking me if I wanted something to eat. At the 3rd mention of milk (shudder) I was off to the bathroom again. I really look like I could survive quite a few missed meals. I guess it's just wanting to help and not knowing what to do. They were also taking "care" of Esther and were concerned that she wasn't eating either. She did eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and I found out later the milk they were trying to give her was spoiled and that's why she refused it. (double shudder) After a visit to land and an adjustment (family of chiropractors). I felt much better. I was glad to be home on solid ground the next day. I did get a patch done for the diamond patch.

Yesterday I went to my doctor for a physical. He's such a good person and seems to really like what he does. He's very close my age, extremely good looking (were talking Brad Pitt good-looking) and he acts like a big brother, great caring advice with the right amount of teasing thrown in. His only concern is my weight and will have lab results later in the week. I just thought, "How sad, something I can totally control." I gotta get going on that. I'll have to post goals about health related weight here on my blog.

I need to work a bit on the music, get the technical stuff down and learn the new songs for September. So August is going to hopefully be a productive month. Take care all! Tori
