Hello, flisters! I was just looking at my journal and realized I hadn't posted anything since July 14th, which is kind of mental, so I thought I should at least post and let everyone know I'm still alive. I've been battling migraines and kidney stones, and some PCOS hormonal things that may or may not be related to the formers, and I've just been kind of chilling and resting. Health issues aside, we're all a lot less stressed here than we were before Mom's surgery, due to her being in so much pain before and it being hard to watch and having to throw in more to cover for the things she couldn't do, and it's been so lovely to see her up and doing so much better, and we're all kind of exhausted in a good way. Exhausted from being so relaxed because we're not stressed, if that makes sense.

Mom is doing great now. She had a hard go recovering from the blood loss, and had some dizzy spells, but she's much better now and she and I have started doing yoga to help her recover and we're really enjoying it. I've also taken up crocheting, which I am now addicted to and cannot stop crocheting. Like, seriously, I spend multiple hours a day just browsing through Ravelry and playing around with our extensive stash of yarn to see what I can make, while also binge-watching Netflix.

Example of my early work:

I've recently finally mastered going back and forth in a row instead of in a circle, which is an accomplishment. Probably helped by the fact that I have a new type of glasses to correct my lazy eye, and now I feel like I'm seeing the world in HD.

Anyhoodle, I hope everyone is doing well, and I hope to be back to posting stories at some point. Love you all!

Good to hear from you! I'm glad your mom is doing much better, and I hope things improve for you soon.

That's lovely, early work or not.
