They Are Here!!!



Guess what came this morning? A brand new pair of freshly knitted socks. Oh yeah, baby! I have the best MIL ever....eat your hearts out...she is mine!!! When I found out I was having surgery I asked Mere to ask her mom for a new pair of socks for surgery. Less then a week later and they have arrived. I put them on (briefly) to take a pic but I won't wear them again until I get to LA and start all my tests/surgery. They will make me smile, keep me connected, and keep my family with me even when I am alone. A tall order for some socks but if you wore them, you would understand! They really are more than socks.
And...thank you to my SIL, Melissa...this was supposed to be her pair for Christmas. Trust me, giving up a pair of these suckers is a sacrifice.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Oh, those are awesome! I can't do socks or slippers and it hasn't been for lack of trying! I think it's a conspiracy! I wear flip flops, even in the winter. I hate socks. They, apparently, hate me too!

great great socks!!
I wrote a long and thought out comment yesterday, tried to post it and got an error msg. The crux of it was: love your blog. Your family is in my thoughts, and the lemony snicket books are great on tape. Also, try some Margaret Cho, if you don;t mind that sort of humor.

best of luck

Wow, those are great looking socks. A sister-in-law makes them for us at Christmas. The very best gift. We will be thinking of you and your family. Enjoy your Thanksgiving with your loved ones.

hmmm. I love hand knitted socks. I was going to be feel really outdone if your MIL knitted AND sent them to you all in less than a week. I am glad you explained.

Best of luck. Take deep breaths and remember that lots of people are rooting for you.
