I'm baaacccckkkkk!

Well, vacation is over and I am once again back to Europe with my nose on the grindstone.

Vacation was not exactly "rest and relaxation" this time around as it involved 2.5 days of missing luggage, including my niece Abby's almost completed baby blanket. A visit to the ER room and the Radiologist due to severe pain in my left side and lots of nausea (gall bladder issues) lack of appetite and sleepiness. A whirlwind 2 day trip to Chicago. And lots of other running around.

I did finish the Baby Blanket in time for the Birthday Party. But I of course forgot to take a picture of it....yup, I'm blonde. I'm going to ask my sister if she can take one or bring it with her and have my parents take one of it the next time they see each other. I casted off and weaved in the ends as we were driving up to the party!! Talk about cutting it close!

I "accepted" a new job position here in Europe for a few months. We are creating a sub-region of the smaller countries in Western Europe and I'll be setting up the monthly finance and budget processes for this new region. Loads of fun. Lots of work and new headaches as I will be also still involved in the old position to some extent.

That is it for now. I have a ton of e-mails to catch up on, several new pattern books to go through and lots of knitting and crocheting to get done. I want to finish up a few more of these WIPs I have laying about.....progress is being made on them though! And I have a swap obligation I need to fulfill.

Welcome home. I hope all the health issues got taken care of and didn't put a damper on too much of your vacation.

Glad to see you post again!
Sorry to hear about the baggage hassles, and most of all that you got sick. Take care now, get enough sleep and not eat too much sweets. (sound like your mom?)

Yes I have to admit to being blonde and forgetting about your vacation away from us as well. I hope that you managed to squeeze some fun in with all the problems.
