I just wanted to check in from my nest here and see how everyone's doing.I am coming along here,I don't need to dress my grafts anymore.I need to go get measured for a compression sleeve for my arm so my grafts stay flat and my arm does not contract.My donor sight is healing really well and doesn't hurt all the time anymore.I hope all the owls are still hooting I miss talking to you all at night.

So glad things are going well for you Joan!

I didn't do anything today. I'm still feeling sick with this cold and didn't go to church so I wouldn't spread my germs. Thunderstorms are nearby, but I think they will skirt by me.

Hi Joan! So glad to hear you are progressing well. I know it seems like a long road but hang in there. I'm spending this week sorting and cleaning. I refuse to sew until I can get some things in order. I need to stop looking at Daily Deals and other online sales! That or I need to exercise some self-control or sew faster! Perhaps an intervention is necessary!!

Snippet, hope you get to feeling better.

Good to hear healing is going well. Got all my pieces cut for Leah's January BOM. Also got all months backings done. Really looking forward to this BOM keeping me inspired this year. Oh and this forum of course.

Joan, glad to hear that things are going well.

Carol, I hope that you get feeling better soon.

It has been fairly quiet around here today. Due to the ice, we didn't go to church this morning. You could ice skate on the driveway. The main roads were not too bad this afternoon but the side roads were not from the reports that people were giving.

We worked on getting the little one's clothes switched today. He has already outgrown 3 month clothes. I was able to cut on blocks for a quilt that I am making dh. On facebook, MSQC posted a picture of a quilt that someone had made from one of Jenny's tutorials - dh seen it and liked it so I thought I would make it for him. It may take a while to get it done but it will get done.

Have a safe, warm night everyone :)

Joan, glad to hear your healing is getting better.
Carol, hope you feel better soon and miss some of the storms.

I've been busy trying to declutter before moving. Didn't get as much done as I had hoped for, but still progress. Also learned today that DD is pregnant! Baby should be here a few months after I retire! This will be my first grandchild. So exciting. It was so hard not to say anything to my mother and sis today when I talked to them, but it's too early and she's only told her brother and parents.

Joan - so glad to hear things are healing and the pain is easing somewhat. And I hope you feel better soon, Carol!

Roads are clear and dry here so our week of travel plans start tomorrow (Monday.) Since it is a holiday the traffic should be light, I hope. It's about 2 hours to the destination so a very easy trip. Looking forward to some shopping at Joann's. The coupons I have expire tomorrow and new ones come out Tuesday ~ I know 2 trips will be in order.

It's nice to hear about babies ... both the ones that are here and coming. Congratulations Karen ... sounds like the timing is right for you to be a full time grandmother. :)

Thanks for checking in and starting the thread, Joan! We've been missing you!

I was surprised by some very thoughtful forum mail that will come in handy! :D

I keep having vertigo when I do the exercises, but lessened. I'm supposed to try to sit up in a recliner to sleep at a 45 degree angle recline. We will see if I can manage that as I usually have to sleep face down or on my side at best. I really want to get over this as I can't sew in this state. :( At least the Bulls won twice this weekend! Yay, Hoiberg! :D

MM asked me out on a date today and he took me to see a movie. We saw Moana.....if you have not seen it, go do it just to see it on the big screen. It is animated and so well done. I will absolutely be buying it once it's released.

When we got out of the movie, we went to the oldest daughters house for a visit. She took Ashtyn, the ten year old grandboy, to see Monster Jam last night. It's something with all the tricked out 4x4 p/u's and jeeps and things. While there, she lost her wallet and was not very happy. She cancelled everything last night. Luckily for her, about two hours ago, a couple knocked on her door and had found her wallet and brought it to the house to return it! She was crazy with excitement and wanted to hug them. She said they appeared to be Cambodian and didn't know what to think of this crazy woman and took a step back. I asked her where they had found it and if she gave them a reward or anything, but she didn't ask and it hadn't occurred to her to give them anything. It was to late to uncancel the cancelled cards, but at least she has them back along w/her ID.

Great to see you posting Joan, pray the healing continues at a fast rate.
