Whew!

It's been a long couple of days here in Mimi-ville!  My mom had some surgery yesterday.  She's doing well, but the operation was a little more complicated than it should have been. 

8 hours in a hospital waiting room is a L-O-N-G time!  Then seeing my mom in pain was really hard.  I'm used to being the one in the bed, but not seeing my loved ones in hurting.

I've got a great Oneida giveaway coming up that I hope to have posted tomorrow, & I'm going to try and visit all of my bloggy friends tonight!

Poor momma!!! :( Hope she's even more on the upside of feeling better!

I have to be in your shoes tomorrow - I have to sit in the waiting room on my dad tomorrow ... he's having some sorta back testing that he has to lay flat for hours. I'll take my knitting with me - for sure!

Sorry to hear about your mom. Ugh, when my mom talks about getting procedures done, it freaks me out! I can't imagine waiting 8 hours. That is a long time, but I'd do it too!

It's been a zoo at my blogs and I feel like I'm sinking sometimes! I hope you have a great turn out for your Oneida giveaway. I love my Oneida mixing bowls!

Thanks for the lovely cards. It was such a special surprise to find them in my mailbox. Thank you so much for thinking of me. :)

I'm here from Melissa's blog. I saw her post about the gorgeous quilt you sent to her - and just wanted to say, I think you're a beautiful person.
