  • Gallstones and Influenza

    Posted on February 19, 2015 by Aptenoknits in Life.

      I’ve been a little quiet for the past couple of weeks but not without reason.  Let’s start with the more recent: I’ve had the flu.  It isn’t Influenza A or B, but we’re pretty sure it’s C or E, not that that means anything.  Well, it’s meant I’ve felt pretty crappy for the past […]

  • Coffee Table… of DOOOM

    Posted on February 2, 2015 by Aptenoknits in Life.

    Disclaimer: This blog post gets a little silly.  You may find your brain melting from the sheer silliness of it all.  You have been warned. My coffee table broke, you know the one from ikea where I spent my time fighting crowds and running around like a beheaded fowl?  Someone broke it due to someone’s […]
