U is for Update
So I didn’t mean to take a bloggy break. Life just kept getting in the way (still is for that matter) and every time I sit down to write this Coco seems to need to go out or someone needs something.
So let’s see where did we leave off…
The TV. Well the TV thing worked out great. DH and I went by Sam’s Club to check out new TV’s and see if they knew anything about this extended warranty. While we were there they told us just to bring back the broken TV and they would give us a full refund. So we packed everything back up the next night and not only did they refund the TV, they also gave us our money back for the extended warranty. So we purchased a new TV and have been happily watching ever since. This new TV is better than ever – we ended up with a Sony Bravia 46″ LCD this time. The picture was just better than the plasma. Maybe it worked out for the best.
Last weekend we went back to the vet. Unfortunately on the way DH didn’t see the man hole cover was up from all the plowing going on with the snow around here and shredded his tire. Ugh. We finally made it to the vet. We found out poor Tobey needs a special diet and all but our diabetic cat needs a lower protein food. This means feeding them on a schedule. So we tried this only to have poor Fagyo go into a diabetic shock. I woke the vet up on Sunday morning at 6:55AM. I’m sure he loved that, but I think he may have dozed off again, as I called him back to let him know the corn syrup worked around 8:10 and he still sounded groggy. Anyway he came out it. He was still a bit unsteady throughout the day, but by the evening he was right as rain again.
The washer also broke. That needed a new motor and motor board. As least the parts were under warranty. Just cost the service call and the labor, but it took two visits. Another pain.
I did manage to finish the vest, but still haven’t gotten my Mom’s presents off yet. Her birthday is Sunday. Since I’ve had to put a few more hours in a work this week (inventory, yuck), it may not get out till Saturday. Kinda a bummer, but I know she understands.
Here’s the vest. It’s a pain in the winter, when it’s hard to get a decent picture even in the day.
Plain Jane but very useful. She’ll love it. I think it’s my last one for a while though. I think I’ve knit 3 now and it’s worn on me. I think I’m going to try a hat and scarf for her next project. I did end up with an extra skein of Cascade 220 – so I think I’m going to make her a beret to go with the vest.
