My weekend, in numbers . . .

6.3 - results of my A1C test at my doctor's appointment Friday morning!!  7.0 is good.  6.5 is better.  I've never been lower than 6.4, and it didn't last.  I wasn't sure I'd ever get back under 6.5, but I did it!!!  This is my best test result ever!

1.5 - number of hours it should've taken us to drive to Long Island for Pea's cousin's wedding on Friday.

5 - number of hours it actually took us.

45 - number of minutes we had to get showered and dressed before the luxury bus took us from the hotel to the wedding site.  (Somehow we made it)

2 - number of hours I lasted at the wedding before my migraine forced me to "lose" the few appetizers I had eaten.  (Not fun.)

0 - number of dinners eaten at the wedding, drinks drunk at the wedding, dances danced at the wedding.

27 - number of dollars it cost us to take a taxi back to the hotel so I could go straight to bed even though it was only 9:30.

dozens - number of family members we finally got to visit with at the post-wedding-day brunch on Saturday morning.  Luckily we made it to that.  The headache was gone, at long last, although I felt a bit hung over (and didn't even get to have the big party Friday night to make it all worth while!!)

3 - number of scary hours spent in the ER on Sunday  This time it was poor Pea and a weird "spot" on his tongue.  He has to go see a specialist this week, but it seems to be an icky side-effect to the acid reflux he's been experiencing.  (I'd tell you more, but it's too gross!)

34 - number of years old Pea turned yesterday.  We had a wonderful time celebrating this weekend (uuummmm, aside from the traffic and the migraine and the ER visit).

And last but not least,

1 - number of pairs of finished footies!!!

Pattern: My Own, based loosely on the Fetching Mitts
(but I knit the cables in pairs with one crossing front and one crossing back)
Cast On: 23 July 2008
Completed: 28 August 2008
Yarn: Elann Esprit - just one ball!!
Needles: US 7 (4.5mm) DPNs

WooHoo 6.3!!!!!!!!!

On everything else - Hugs there. I could have warned you about coming here this weekend it is one of the worse to drive to Long Island. Everyone and there mother is trying to get in one more beach weekend. Heck I even stayed home, with beach traffic and back to school shopping going on traffic was crazy, I just stayed home and knitted and cleaned (knitting comes before cleaning)

That was quite a weekend you guys had! Yay for good test numbers! Boo for migraines and weird spots on tongues. I know what you mean about the post-migraine hangover. I love your red footsies!

Congrats on the 6.3. That must have made your day as well as completing those socks with only one ball of yarn. It's a one-skein pattern now!

Bummer about the wedding. That's horrible that you got so sick. It's even worse when you're sick and out of town. :-(

Yay for 6.3! Sorry to hear both of you got ill though! (hugs)

Hey, how about that 'score'! Boy, I'll tell ya, it's nice to hear some good news for a change (not to ignore your hubby's issue...but it sounds like a relatively easy fix, thinking positive here..)!

Jennifer said...

I agree with above comments... migraines are no fun at all. Your socks look comfortable.
