I have a new best friend. It is a “Compact Wireless-G USB Adapter with SpeedBooster.” Can you see that little green light? That means I have a wireless connection on this big old Dell laptop. I am mobile, baby.
My sweet mother is doing pretty well. Thank you for your kind good thoughts, everyone. I’m carrying all of them around with me, and they make a huge difference — the load feels a little lighter.
I am also ensconced in a pretty comfortable hotel room in Potomac, Maryland. The Bolger Center: it’s an oddball sort of hotel, but they take good care of you.
A quiet, comfortable place to sleep is the best thing to have when you’re on the road. Good knitting helps, too, especially when you’re spending a lot of your time watching your mother do walker laps in the physical therapy room.
I didn’t get very far on this sock today because I forgot to bring the smaller needles with me so I could begin the heel flap. Lucky for me, ten minutes down the road from my mom’s temporary abode is Knit + Stitch = Bliss. They had just the needles I needed, and they were having a sale to boot.
Well, it’s time to climb under the covers of the bed someone else made, after I wash my face with the cloth someone else washed and put out. In the morning I’ll go downstairs and have a cup of coffee that was brewed by someone else. If it didn’t cost actual money, I could get used to this hotel thing.
