Before Christmas I had posted that we were searching for a Nintendo Wii for Grant. Well, yesterday was our lucky day!! Tom got up at 4:30 a.m. and went to Target and stood in line for the "magic ticket"!! I went out there at 6:00 to bring him coffee and a paper. I was willing to trade places with him, but he declined the offer. As a seasoned Green Bay Packer fan, he had all the necessary clothing to keep him warm. He brought home the ticket at 7:15. I went back when the store opened at 8:00 to get the Wii. Grant was so thrilled!! I hope I don't have to buy another game system, ever!! This was too stressful!! We felt like the people from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory!! We scored a golden ticket! The boys spent most of the day playing the games that Grant got for Christmas.
I am having surgery next Monday, so today I am going to my pre-op visit with the doctor. I am anxious to have the whole thing done. I know a lot of woman who have had hysterectomies and feel so much better afterwards. I just get a bit nervous about being put under. I will have a whole month to recover and knit which sounds wonderful. I have many friends who have offered help with driving my kids to activities and I am so blessed. My neighbors will come over and let Kipper and Todd out while I am in the hospital. I hope to be home by Tuesday.
I am still waiting for my Mitt Kit Swap package to arrive. The one I sent to Canada made it and from the email I got, she liked everything!! Yeah! I need to go get Grant from school. Happy knitting!!
