I emailed STR today and told them about the yarn and they are going to remedy it, told me that is not acceptable. Yay!
I finished a secretive crochet project and am going to mail it out on Friday. I have been lazy about mailing things lately, but hey it is hot outside. I will post a picture of it after she receives it.
Speaking of the mail, I sold some cloth diapers on ebay back in May. The first bidder never paid, so I offered it to the second bidder. She was an APO address. I mailed it off and it came back. Apparantly I wrote her old last name on it and didn’t notice the comment section where she had her new last name. So, I redid it all and mailed it out. She never got it. It was insured, but since my husband mailed it out he can’t find the receipt. I have the receipt of the first time. Blah. I lost $60 over that I ended up just refunding her money. Sometimes if there is a conflict, it is better to just pay the price and move on.
Thank you for all the well wishes about my cold. I have a bit of a temperature tonight and periodically try to cough out my lung. I will survive. I had to cancel a lot of activities this week but am glad that I am getting this over now then getting sick when I am back at school.
On a positive note and since I think I should start ending my blog posts on more positive notes…I am no longer suffering from chronic severe back pain. It has been about 3 weeks or maybe longer. Honestly, I can’t exactly remember when I first noticed it. I knew something was different, like I was able to stand up straighter, get out of bed easier, etc. The one night it occured to me as I went to bed I didn’t have to thrash back in forth in pain for 10 minutes, my usual routine before falling asleep.
I am still taking some meds every night before bed. I want to wait another month or so before I start to wean myself from them, just in case that is what is keeping the pain away. I finally feel happy I had the surgery I did and finally think I am healed from the surgery and am reaping the benefits. It was a very bumpy road this last year. I think in October, 3 months from now if I am still feeling this good I am going to write my doctor a letter to let him know how well I am doing, etc. Regardless, the last few weeks of no pain have been priceless to me.
