That's what we'll be saying around here - thank goodness it's March!  February has been less than kind to us here in the PMM household.  I'll do the quick rundown because I can't stand those posts that drone on about how horrible things have been and then they disappear again only to come back and share more ugly news.  So the skinny of it has been, we've been plagued.  Not literally but it sure feels like it.

Started the month by finding Butch a new furever home.  He is now the proud followerer of a four-year-old boy with Autism.  They are both happy campers and it's nice to know that while we weren't the perfect fit, we were the perfect stopping point for him to get ready for his final place.

Afterwards, I was hit hard with a few episodes.  Every time I thought I was good, I was reminded I was stupid for thinking I was good.  I'm not going to say I'm good any more.  I consider vertical a win.  It makes life more positive.  If I can be vertical, it's an awesome day.

Currently, Hobbit is down with the flu.  Hit her like a ton of icky bricks too.  Had to get her from school Friday - needed a cab and everything.  I would have thought my first cab ride would have been more exciting.  Oh well, life isn't like the movies.  She was so sick that her pediatrician called in medicine usually reserved for cancer patients dealing with the effects of chemo.  That helped her a great deal but today, she popped a fever of 102 and it's bounced around all day but not yet broke.  It teased me by going down to 99 but then reminded that I'm stupid and came back up to 102 just a few minutes ago.  I see a lukewarm bath in our future.

On the pretty side, look at what all I've completed since I've been horizontal a good bit of this month... yes, I can knit and crochet while lying down - it's a talent I'm rather tickled about because it means that I can still work even though I feel wretched.

This was originally for my mama but it came out very small so I gave it to Hobbit - yes, it's knit lace!

I crocheted this for my mama  instead.  I love how it turned out, so did she.  She said it was fancy.

I had some yarn leftover so I made this ascot because it's awesome.

I finished this project bag the other day and now I'm debating lining it.
I've got another bag in the works right now - also known as my Mission for HPKCHC.  I've given up on my OWL because honestly, I don't like the projects any longer.  I'm going to frog the one and find something else to do with that yarn... the shawl, I'll just find a good stopping point and give it to Hobbit.  She's still small, she'll love it.

Off to figure out I'm doing for supper.  Somehow my planned menu of pizza doesn't seem right now.  I hope y'all are having a wonderful weekend and I have big things coming in March... a giveaway or two might even be up my sleeve!!

Change of pace

Butch relaxing in the morning sun from the living room window, in "his spot".
I went to bed last night and for the first time in months, I did not have to set an alarm.  I was allowed to wake up when my body wanted to and it was glorious.  I got to sleep until I was fully recharged.  It is amazing how much one little thing like that can help a person - on so many levels.

Today I am finally off and I am going to spend it doing relaxing things.  I've got a small Emma Stone movie collection waiting for me, along with my latest knitting project.  I've got my coffee in my most favorite mug and that annoying sleep deprived twitch in my left eye is slowly fading.  I even pulled out steaks for supper so I don't have to cook.

These past few weeks have made me sit down and prioritize my life.  I can no longer go ninety to nothing with the mentality of "I'll sleep when I'm dead".  I have a plan in place to lessen the time requirements on my life so I can get my balance, my peace, and my health back.  They aren't major things - well, not to the average person but they are major parts of my life.  I have even enlisted the help of some friends to keep me to my plan.

I miss this space in my life.  It is one of my most favorite places to be and yet it has been getting the least amount of my attention.  That is one of the main things that will be remedied in the coming months.  It's a gradual plan but by Spring I should have it all wrapped up in a nice little bow.

Bare with me.  Your patience and understanding has been lovely and I cherish it.  Things will be back to normal soon.  In the interim, why not join me in an Emma Stone/knitting kind of day.  I've got "Easy A", "The Help", and "Crazy Stupid Love" all set up so that by the end of today, I will have a new FO to share with y'all.

I will be back shortly, so please be well and be blessed.
I tried to share my WIP by my "production crew" was too busy helping for me to be able to share... but know this, it's lace!
