Also, I went in to see my sleep doc today. It was funny how it came about too. I had an appointment for November thirtieth, and couldn't get in earlier since it wasn't an emergency. Then the receptionist called me back about an hour later and basically told me someone had cancelled for the next day, did I want the appt. I was all over that, baby!!!! So he gave me a prescription for the Zaleplon (which is the generic for Sonata). Then he handed me over to Doctor Niebur (my pdoc) for the stimulant. He's afraid to give me a stronger stimulant with my bipolar. And I'm afraid to take on because of my bipolar. He said it can make people wonky. I'm already enough of a dork, so I'm nervous about it. I see Niebur in a few days, and I'll talk about it with her then. So wish me luck!
Also, someone told me that if I scheduled my therapy on the same day and at the same time, I would be more likely to remember it. Some I'm gonna talk to Heather about it next time and see what she thinks about putting me in for it. I know I need it, but I have such troubles remembering to go to my case manager apts... Anyways, I'll see what I can do with that.
Mom is doing all right. She would be doing better if she would stop working around the house. She just doesn't seem to know the meaning of the words rest and relax. She is a seamstress. She was washing the windows and dragging the garbage out yesterday. Then today I stopped by to see her on the way home from the sleep doc's, and she was working on a customer's stuff. I was all, "No wonder you're ready to drop by nine each night. You're working when you should be resting." And she defended herself, saying she was supposed to slowly resume normal activities. To which I pointed out that if she's exhausted by nine, she needs to take it easier. She's not listening. I'm worrying about her still. She's stubborn sometimes, and she just doesn't know how to relax.
And now for the eye candy. (I know this is the part you've all been waiting for, lol.) I worked on ToS on Tuesday night (and should have posted a piccy on Wed). I'm a bad SAL hostess, so here is my pic.
It's not much, just part of the trunk. I love working on the opalescent fabby though. It's so nice and sparkly. Thanks again Anne!! Wow, and the pic is even somewhat sparkly too. Awesome!! So far, I'm enjoying this piece. It took me a few stitches to get over feeling bad about the whole mess. But now I'm okay with this. I've got some more trunk to do, as you can see. But I didn't have a lot of stitchy time on this. It was a busy day. I had a few non stitchy things to do, and of course there were emails to do. I'm still behind, but I swear, I will get caught up at some point. Hopefully soon. At this point, I have 345 of them in my Incredimail inbox, and then I'll be mostly caught up. I just downloaded again last night, so I probably have some on the server too.
And then Wed was the Christmas (ornie) SAL. We're doing all things Christmas since someone has a larger Christmas project. I started on my Snowy Night Ornie by The Prairie Schooler. I didn't get a lot done. I got a few rows in. It's hard going because I'm stitching in hand, and my hand cramps. So I can work for ten minutes, and then I have to put it down. So I didn't get as much done as I had hoped to, but I got some done. Here she is in all her glory, lol.
I'm stitching this one on opalescent fabby too, and I gave mom a seam allowance of half an inch. She only needs an eighth or so, but I was afraid of fraying, so I made it so there's enough room to serge it. I'm gonna change one of the colors in it too. The evergreens are done in a very dark blue, and I think I'm gonna change that to a very dark evergreen color. I need my darned color card!!!!! Wah!!! (Okay, hissy fit over, lol.) And that's it for me today. Hope everyone is having a good night!!
