A Clean Slate and Big Plans

I had plans. I was going to make it through the holiday season, pack away the ornaments, and start on some new projects. I was in the mood for a challenge.  2015 was going to be a better year. 

A couple of hours  after I wrote yesterday's post, my husband fell and broke his toe. The urgent care doctor sent us home with two of his toes taped together and one of those awful printed sets of instructions that doesn't really answer any of your questions. Half an hour later, he called back to tell my husband that a radiologist had looked at the Xrays, the break extended into the foot, something about loose bone fragments, something about surgery, and that he needs to see the orthopedist as soon as possible. So we're holding our breath until Monday, when we'll find out when he can even get an appointment. And holding out until the pharmacy opens at 10 am, because by the time we left urgent care, they were  closed. 

I think I do need a challenge to distract myself a bit.

Not sure if these patterns are more than I can handle right now, but sometimes focusing on patterns and techniques can really help. If I turn out to be over my head, I an just unravel it and start over. 

But first I've got to settle on a pattern.

Sure hope your husband doesn't need surgery. What rotten luck after the year he has already had.

Enjoy creating some sock with your new patterns.

Sorry to hear about your husband's toe. Makes me think every time you hit your toe and think it's broken, go get it looked at anyway. You never know. Here's to a speedy recovery!

I hope this is just a hangover from 2014, and 2015 gets better from here on in.

Awe :( your poor hubby! And you too! Hope this is a glitch and the rest of 2015 is awesome!
I love your sock book! I make simple socks - Judy had talked me into trying them... As I sit here I am taking a break from the second sock - it's halfway done. My pattern is Classic Socks very plain! Good luck Monday!

Oh Dear, I hope that all goes well with the Hubby. Will wait to hear how everything goes on Monday. Good job to try something new to keep your mind busy with something other then worrying. The socks look like a good project.

What a bummer to start the new year. Hope things get better from here on in.
Your sock book looks like fun.
