I didn't shed a single tear on the third anniversary of my father's death. It's been a while since I've cried for him. I don't know if this means I've finally reached acceptance, or if it just means I'm getting better at bottling my emotions. I can often feel the tears well up when I think of my dad. I can't watch a movie or t.v. show that has any father/daughter issues, or the death of a father without tears welling up. The tears don't spill over though. They don't run down my cheeks, or off the tip of my nose any more.

I can't remember his voice.

In other news...
I started crocheting my brother's sweater again... Twice... The first sweater I made was too small, so I switched to a bigger crochet hook, and went up a pattern size. That one turned out way too big for my brother... But it should fit my husband. Then I started another one with the bigger crochet hook, and the first pattern size I used. It looks like it should fit nicely.

I also made my gramma a poncho. It's charcoal colored chenille. It's so SOFT! And WARM!

And I made my sister's hat. It's purple, and pink, and FUZZY!

Oh, and I fell down on the weekend... My hubby smacked my ass, knocked me off balance, and I just crumpled to the floor. I wasn't wearing my ankle brace, so I re-stretched my still-not-healed tendons. That was fun...

That hubby of yours ought to know better! My daughter dislocated her elbow at school and it was hanging at a weird angle. She didn't even notice until I pointed it out. But she whipped it back into place. Everyone was kind of creeped out, but it was necessary.

I will post pics of my projects as soon as I can.

Pop and Ice,
I've had the conversation with my hubby numerous times, but it doesn't seem to work. This is the first time it's actually knocked me off balance enough to fall though.
How didn't your daughter notice her floppy elbow? I always notice if my joints are hanging oddly, and I try to fix them as quickly as possible.
