I made a trip to the Cross Stitch Cupboard today and the lady there was rather surprised and impressed that I am already working on linen after only two months. I guess that's some kind of feat. I don't know. I just like the look of it better and the way quarter and three quarter stitches are easier to work. I just have to keep remembering to stitch over two instead of one.
I borrowed my stepson's digital camera for the reunion. I think I have most of the features figured out. The ones I haven't figured out are ones I don't need.
I think I'm pretty much ready for the trip. I still have to pack and I have 175 pages left to read in The Vengeance Equation; but I will just take the book with me if I don't get it finished. It is a paperback, so won't add too much to the travel weight.
The doctor diagnosed me with TMJ (temporomandibular joint disfunction, or whatever the latest terminology is) back in March. I disagreed with his diagnosis. Well, since then I have done some research and performed a few of my own tests and determined that he is probably right. And, boy, does it hurt. I can't open my mouth as widely as I used to and chewing, yawning, etc. make it worse. I may have to go on a soft food diet for a while to let it calm down. I guess that means ice cream and Jello. I'll gladly make those sacrifices for pain free living.
