I actually made stuff today. Knit knit knit.

I made a weird hat/scarf hybrid and a narrow scarf out of this fluffy soft blue yarn. I've been knitting for what, a week or so now? Mostly I have just knit then unraveled then knit again. But I think I am finally getting the hang of it, yay!

I picked up some size 17 needles. Used those to make the hat and scarf. I like knitting with the big fat needles. I'll get some pictures once the kid gets home from her dad's and I can force her to model them for me. I took some of the hat on a gourd, lol, but I don't think it shows it to it's best potential.

Did I mention I also made a hand bag out of an old book cover? I'll have pictures of that later too. I've been crafting my booty off!

Yesterday was Tsu's birthday. He is 32. For a very short period of time he is only 6 years younger than I am, on paper at least. He took his unpaid day for this month so he wouldn't have to work on his birthday (that is how they are working his pay cuts, with "unpaid days"). He requested it at the beginning of the month. His coworker asked for the same time off earlier this week. On the schedule the coworker was listed as off but Tsu wasn't. Not only that but when other folks have a birthday they get a birthday email... he got nothing. What a load of crap.

Today we were supposed to go visit with my youngest brother's fiancee. She is home on leave from the Marines. But it snowed like mad all day and Tsu's back was killing him so he was on meds and wasn't doing well at all. He went back to bed and looked miserable. He went to a neurologist last week and they found problems in his c7 vertebra and some carpel tunnel problems. He had to go in for an MRI to check his spine. The pain in his back keeps coming and going. I think it might be related to a car accident he had in his teens, he has had head aches and neck pain as long as I have known him, just not anything this bad.

So I am pretty bummed about not getting to see Alisha but no way did I feel safe driving in this weather with Tsu feeling so yuck.

They said they would read his MRI in 2 to 4 business days so middle of next week they should know something. If it can be proven to be related to his car accident the insurance company of the guy who caused the accident is responsible for all of his medical bills because of something related to him being a minor at the time it happened and being covered for life. Just no clue how you would prove it was related to the accident.

Blah blah blah, I just keep yammering on. I think I am going to go play some video games. lol.
