It's been awhile.....

nothing really new to report.

my belly issues~ gone! of course, the day after the dr's visit, i felt perfectly fine. all my tests also came back normal~ as i figured they would.

you may be asking, "where's the knitting?" "has she lost her mojo?"
well, no. after frogging the Mystic Waters Shawl, i decided to save up my knitting for Mystic Light. i thought that maybe if i resisted the urge to pick up my needles, i could attack M.L. with a vengeance and perhaps actually keep up with the clues.

i did finish the swatch. it's Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Flames. the left two pattern repeats are on size 5 needles, the two right side are size 6.

i've been all about trying to shed my somewhat negative, perhaps sarcastic and bitter ,attitude toward life. when Oprah first announced Eckhart Tolle's book, A New Earth, i quickly ran out to buy it. what an awakening indeed! reading it has really opened my eyes to the fact that my attitude is having detrimental effects on many aspects of my life. i won't get all deep and philosophical, but i strongly URGE you to pick up the book and give it a read. the webinars that Oprah and Tolle every monday night are phenomenal!

my brother and his wife were raving about the movie The Secret. they were so amped by it, i had to get it for myself. it's all about using the Law of Attraction to get what you want out of life. we haven't watched it yet, but i have been listening to a podcast called Law of Attraction Tips, and it's really quite interesting.

anywhoo.... i'm hungry for some mango ice cream. off i go!

belly update

I finally sucked it up and went to the doctor. Unfortunately, she couldn't give me any answers because the pain wasn't in one specific place. So now I have to have a whole gamut of tests: gall bladder ultrasound, abdominal xrays, bloodwork. And since my mom was diagnosed with colon cancer a couple years ago, I have to do some gross stuff I won't discuss here.

Of course, now I feel fine! But everyone keeps telling me I still need to go for the tests. Argh!
