Where did February Go???

No pics with this post possums.. secret squirrel/sewing happening here...

so I wanna know... who stole February??? I am sure I blinked and it disappeared...

I have had a crook knee all year, seen the surgeon last week and not so good news.... I need an operation... my kneecap keeps dislocating and popping out of its home.. painful? um yes... I am having an MRI in a weeks time, so wish me luck.. The surgeon gave me the worst case scenario and its not lookin' good.. being a fat blonde tart hasn't helped the issue either, so please wish me luck... the other downside is that my right knee is so sore I have been favouring my left leg, so of course now thats playing up too... I knew this was coming, something about seeing the same surgeon 12 years ago perhaps??? you just can't rush into these things..

Not much happening here.. usual mum / family stuffs.. I am hanging for the school holidays so I can get some serious sewing time in (after work of course)

I am really hanging for the annual quilt retreat I go to.. Missymoo 'gocco-d' my signature squares last weekend, so that was a huge time saver... just have the fabric to add to them and I am done.. I am working on the challenge quilt too for the retreat (its the secret squirrel sewing)

I have a new 'puter, the old one, well lets just say I got sick of fighting the kids for it! LOL I needed a computer for my courses..

Oh the only other news I have.. I have been reading blogs about "Meatless Mondays".. so I turned a Meatless Monday into a Meatless Month, now its been a Meatess 'trimester'.. three months.. am I missing meat?? not too much (although I could kill a honey king prawns from the local chinese takeaway).. I'll go back to eating meat a couple of nights a week.. do I feel healthier? maybe but I am so tired.. I am anaemic anyways so I guess this hasn't helped... havent' lost any weight either, which is poopy, but I guess if you substitute meat for chocolate well... teehee.. Actually I tell a lie.. I have more or less got my lactose intolerance under control.. gave up tea last year (never drank coffee) been about 7 months since I had a cuppa... gave up soft cheese and milk so I think I have it under control.. if I could give up choccy........


anyhoo enough blathering from me..

Wow Lissa,

I think lots of us have a case of "fed up" as we're heading into colder weather.

Hope you get your kneee sorted out. You sound like me and you really can't rush these things. I avoided a gall bladder removal for 8 years.

Meatless trimester! I grizzled when I did 3 meatless Mondays. WTG!

Always enjoy reading what you write.

Give up choccy???? Never!!! OUCH on your knee! Just thinking about it makes me cringe! I hope you can get it all fixed up. I wish I had your resolve for my diet pepsi addiction -- good for you!!!

I think someone slipped 2010 into fast forward..!! Here we are half way thru March already and I am still wondering what happened to Feb! Hope you get the knee sorted out....what you only left it for 12 years...you are right...can't rush these things!! I have been following the Curves weight management plan and have lost 12.5kg so far...still a ways to go ...but it's a start! Take care and good luck with the MRI ...and hopefully it won't be the worst case scenario you will be dealing with....chins up old girl!

Hope the knee surgery goes well. Haven't started my siggy squares yet. Bought the cream and washed it, but that's all. Thought I had plenty of time, but like you, February just vanished into thin air, (or the internet ether?) lol
Just realised this morning that March was half over!!! PANIC BUTTONS!!!!

Hi I just discovered you and I hooked. We have so much in common. From birth year, month to lactose. I'll be back for more.

Oh Lissa.. sorry to hear about your knee.. but I hope it will be all better now.. you just take care.... and for the non meat eating.. I tried it.. for more than three months.. and what was the result ...lousy lousy blood level... had to go on strong medicin for a long time to get it better.. So .. now I eat meat... but love veggies.. and eat them a lot too..;o) So take care..:o)
