A True DUH Moment!

Hello all - finally, a morning with no precipitation on the walk to work!  And - there was even a bit of sun, so I've decided that's a good sign even if I have to be at work today.  I'm just tired of "wintry mix," and wish it would just make up its mind, I have no patience for indecisive weather.

Anyway, today is Unraveled Wednesday, and I have decided to play along, because I am of course reading, and I had a true DUH moment about knitting the other day.

My reading:


I have about 50 pages left, which should be done today at lunchtime.  It's not a long book, but since it's my lunchtime book it takes longer than it would otherwise.  I'm determined to finish it to see how/if things resolve.  Parts of it have been funny, but I think I don't "get" it, so I am not enjoying it as much as others have.  It has great reviews, so it might be one that just isn't quite for me.

Your mileage of course may vary.

Regarding knitting, still none - AT THIS POINT.  You may recall that my appt with the orthopedic surgeon a couple of weeks ago didn't happen due to an insurance mess.  At that appt I was planning to ask her if it was OK to start knitting again.  Well, the insurance issues will supposedly be cleared up this week (I have to call tomorrow to check, cross your fingers for me), and I have rescheduled the appt for February 25.  Which is not that far away, but it's still another week plus some change away.

Well, the other day, it occurred to me that I could just send one of those Non-Emergency Messages to the nurse and ask her to check with the doctor to see if knitting could start happening again.  DUH - why did this not occur to me before????  I am glad I finally thought about it, but I wish it had entered my brain sooner!

So who knows, I may get the green light before my appt and I can pick up my needles again.  That would be VERY exciting!!  :-)

Hope you get the green light, and that all the insurance fairies have their ducks in a row so you have no more frustrations!

I started that book a while ago (a long while) and it didn't take.

Patty said...

Oh I certainly hope you get the go ahead! And insurance...ugh!

Nance said...

Oh, gosh! I hope, hope, HOPE you can knit soon. When a migraine or Other Issues prevent me from knitting, it makes me nuts. I cannot imagine how you must feel, being away from it this long. FINGERS CROSSED!!

If the nurse gets back to you with something like, "No one has ever asked that before --- I'll have to consult a specialist," maybe your appointment was truly never meant to be.

(Change doctors is what I'm saying.)

That's a long time without knitting. Fingers crossed for good news.

Bonny said...

Fingers crossed that you get a resounding "YES!" for an answer and that insurance really is straightened out. Those would be cause for celebration!

I'd say as long as it doesn't hurt, go for it, but I'm not a doctor nor do I play one on TV. YMMV.

Hope you can get back to knitting soon.

I hope all goes well and you get the reply you're looking for as I'm sure those knitting needles are calling you!

I read that book and did not like it at all. I think I was missing most of the messages....It felt to edgy for my kind of relaxing reading.

I hope you get the Insurance coverage straightened out - what a headache that can be. Here's hoping you get the go ahead for knitting. Take good care in that wintry mix.
