|Basic 2x2 ribbed sock|
Being laid flat with the stomach flu meant that I've kept busy in other ways. Besides finishing the baby socks, I'm almost done with Elsie's Retirement Scarf. It's a basic 2x2 rib with sock yarn on size 10 needles, so it's light and airy and stretchy. This should be finished in a day or two, and the I can tackle the next unfinished object I have lying around here. Still trying to get as many of them finished as I possibly can before we leave.
I've also done a few things in the name of professional advancement. I finished all the classes I need so I can qualify for the board certification test in psychiatric nursing. I signed up for a pediatric advanced life saving class. I also started working on the resume...I really need to get my portfolio together.
I can't believe how fast time is flying. Tomorrow is August, and in just over a month we move out west. We're planning a quick visit before then to look at houses.
My new graduate nurse gave me a book about Asperger's as a Thank You for all that I've done for her. She's come a long way since she started working...she's also got a long way to go. But she's grown a lot and I'm doing all that I can to help her before I have to leave. Anyhow, she's got an Asperger child of her own and thought that I would like the book, that it might help me understand Dale a bit better. It was very sweet of her.
