An Early Valentine's Present.

Who has the bestest hubby ever? Me! I had to work all weekend, and hubby decided that I needed something to break the monotony. He said he wanted me to know that he appreciated all the hard extra work I'd been doing lately (so sweet!) and he'd just gotten a supplemental check from work... So... Guess what I got???

An iPod! The super cool 80 gig one. I have all my music and pics on it and it's not even a quarter full. I really love it, and it's so great to be able to listen to whatever I want with out having to reload music into my old, smaller 1 gig player.

The only thing we were worried about is scratches. The back is shiny silver metal, and fingerprints show like mo fos, so... I made Sassy (that's her name) a sweater!

Pretty cute, huh? There is a flap that goes over the front to protect the screen when it's in my purse, but I need to get a button, so I'll show you pics of that later. I'm going to write up the pattern to put on Ravelry since I couldn't find a crocheted one that I liked, and I know how many people out there have iPods.

As for an update on Granny, she's doing better. She's out of the hospital and in a rehab facility. We're not so happy about having her there, but we can't lift her at home, so it's a necessary evil. I keep telling her the faster she gets better, the faster she comes home, so we'll see. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. They're working!

I'd like you all to pray for my granny. She broke her hip on Sunday and the doctors are a bit worried about her heart. I am a firm believer in the healing power of prayer, so I'd greatly appreciate any that you would send her way. Thanks friends!!!
