I guess now wouldn't be the time for us to put an Illinois Knitters gathering on the calendar, would it?
Hang in there and just take it a day @ a time, and if you're like me, Aunt Flo always brings chocolate -- heaping piles of chocolate -- and insists that you eat every last little morsel. Kick her out, I say! Tell her to get her own pad!
OK ... Now I have to admit that it took me 'til I was 1/2-way through the thread to "get" that Hilde didn't really have an Aunt Flo visiting. We never used that euphemism. We always just called it George or Aunt Martha. Don't know why, but we did.
Anyhoo ... Hilde, we're glad you could find time to pop in and let us know what's going on. BTW ... you're @ the high school, right? We just drove by there on the way home last Sunday whilst trying to avoid all the construction on I-88. I waved!
