You got to be kidding!

Last night, at 10:00pm, after completing 106 rows, I laid my crochet project on the floor to check my progress. WTF! The "G" is backwards!!!!
 This is how it should look!!!!!
So, I jumped into the "frog pond" and started ripping! 41 rows back! I know what happened and should have thought about it sooner! The pattern only called for one row of white at the beginning but because the sides have two stitches of white on each side, I added another row. I didn't think that would make such a big deal but apparently it did! The only hard part of ripping the rows out was the color changes. Luckily, this is an easy afghan or I would really be pissed!
On a lighter note, Justin and I went down to Janet and Rodney's for a hamburger supper. I was going to drive the car but Justin said he would take me on the 4-wheeler. Now, I am 62 years old and have NEVER rode a 4-wheeler! Trust me, this was my first and last time!

 The hardest part was getting my right leg over the seat! Ten years ago, this wouldn't have been a problem, but since my spinal damage in 2007, it was nearly impossible! Luckily I can still walk but not as fast or as balanced as I once could. That man in front of me is my saviour. If not for him, I would be paralyzed or dead! God blessed me with a loving husband.

Wow! You're braver than me! Looks like you're having fun with that sweet hubby of yours, though. My hubby is the same - so loving and has helped me more than I can express.

So sorry about your blanket - glad you caught it before you got it all done!
