Checking In again

Hi all,
well, who ever is still viewing my blog..told sis I might as well get rid of it and she disagreed.
I am still not doing so well, can make one like who is constantly busy go nuts when one can not do what one wants to...I am slowly accepting this but it has been a fight within me..lol
I am still knitting and that is about all.
I tried to clean out my closet and so on..ended up not being able to do anything because of the pain for a few days, was it worth it, yes..I have a very neat closet, threw away many shoes, and put away my fatter clothes that I no longer can wear..it is so nice to be able to wear something you haven't been able to wear in over 10 years..I am still losing but not as fast as before, but that is OK with me..if I can average a pound a week I am happy. My Dr was thrilled and also I had a great check up and sugar has gone even more..yeah for me..on the right track after all these years..My ortho dr did not give me good news...my knee is damage, when he told me this, I asked if he did it..he said no..it is my arthritis..well, I knew i had it and I still think he left it alone it would have healed a lot better...my son who designs things for your spinal and knee said it might take me another 4 months..I really do not mind if it does, but surely I would love to off the walker and on to my cane..can not yet, the knee cap is still buckling on me and still on at least 3 and sometimes 4 pain pills yet..but that is my life for now..
I have taken a lot of photos but did not get to put them here tonight. I will tomorrow or the next day, I was searching for more books..I have misplaced or lost 4 of my Jennifer quilting books so I ordered them the new ones I have not read..I did enjoy reading a chapter every night before bed..
I hope every one is doing fine and life is good for you all, lots of hugs, Lorraine and again I thank those who view my blog.

Hi there Lorraine, I wondered why I hadn't seen any posts on your blog lately. Hope you are soon feeling better and back to your creativities.

Yes, Lynn and going to try and fix that I am trying to sit here more often and just move my knee so it doesn't hurt as much, but doing nothing that creative but knitting..but it keeps me happy.
I made a couple of ATC for my sisters today and you think I never made any before they were just terrible, had a hard time using the ironing board, the cutting mat and so on..its not easy when you can not stand for a long period either..oh well, I will get there one day.
It is so nice to hear from you Lynne, hope every thing is doing fine for you and yours and Happy Easter..lots of hugs, Lorraine
