This has been one of those weeks where you might as well plan on not getting anything done. Just when I sit down to do some tatting, I need to go do something else. Granted the other things are important but so not compatible with my tatting time.
This week started off with a very busy weekend with all three of my children home. This will be the last time in who knows how long before we get together again. Since I have Hypothyroidism, my energy levels are never where they need to be when I get this busy. I go to bed so exhausted at night because my metabolism is never where it should be to keep up. The plus side to being diagnosed is that I have stopped the uncontrolled weight gain that I experienced over the years. My husband was complaining that I hardly ever ate much but was still gaining weight. Now if I could just get the metabolism kick back in to lose the weight, I would be much happier. (Sorry about the rant but I am fighting fatigue today.)
My uncle passed away the first part of this week and we will be attending his memorial service coming up this weekend. I will also be taking my daughter back to meet her ride back to college. It is a very good thing that they are in the same town. Next week is our annual "run away" for spring break vacation. Hubby and I will be traveling to a well known town in southern MO to spend a quiet week. This is a good school break for him as he is a college professor and just needs the time away. In an effort to get ready for the next week, I have been working on getting my patterns in electronic format to put on my tablet so I don't have to drag my entire library with me. In all of this I have discovered that there is actually nothing in the android market that will read an "rtf" formatted file. So now I have to convert them to either PDF format or epub. Guess that means that my files will be converted all over again.
I have had an idea of what I wanted to do for my next egg pattern. In the process of converting the books, I ran across a diagram based on an older pattern that I could post here. I am basing my work on the older pattern but this will give you an idea of what I am looking to do.
Well, that is enough ranting for today. Hope you all get more done than I will today.
