We're back!

We're all finally home and settled under one roof again. I was hoping to get a chance to check in last week but things got a little hectic. All in all, our trips were good. We made it to the clinic appointments eventually- had a little trouble with traffic and bad directions but the staff was great about getting us in late and getting us through all Joshua's testing. He did very well overall, right on target for development though still small for his age. The only thing to be concerned about was some fluid the audiologist found in his ears so we're going to have him re-evaluated at home in a few weeks to see if it's chronic or not. He has no history of ear infections which really surprised them so we'll see what the next evaluation shows.

The second trip, my solo trip, went well too. I sucessfully completed the training and am now a certified compounding pharmacist. It was a fun couple of days and I definitely learned a lot which has already been put to the test at work. I did make it to SB&B and picked up a few things...

I also finally got a copy of The Proper Stitch which I've been wanting for a very long time. Spent a good part of my first evening away from home drooling over it too! I got in some good stitching time too, funny how much spare time you have when there's no one else around to make dinner for and clean up after. I did miss my boys though and was very happy to see them all Friday night.

Oh, pictures of the stitching before I forget! I finally put down Celtic Autumn for a bit but here she is as of right now.

I took Hydrangea Pillow with me on my trip this week and got a chunk of green done on it so I'll have to get a scan of it soon too but I'm a little too lazy to get it out of the hoop at the moment as I'm going to get back to stitching after I'm done here. I'll have to spend some time catching up on my blog reading this week too, hope you all have had a good couple weeks while I was away.
