doing what Jackie does

Tuesday, I had to rush my youngest DD to the Emergency Room.? She had a temperature of 105.7 (in the ear).

I honestly can’t recall the drive over, as I was so panicked!? I was shaking while trying to fill out the paper work.? My signature looked like chicken scratch for sure!

I couldn’t remember her birthdate – everything was a complete blank!? I’ve never been more scared in my life!

I just rocked her back and forth waiting….

After they gave her some motrin to break the fever, I was able to see and hear again, but then, the only thing on my mind (other than the situation at hand) was that I needed to crochet!? I mean I was aching to crochet.
Luckily, Turner was packing! 😆 – He said I told him to grab his crochet because we’d be waiting a long time.
He brought extra yarn and hooks, so I was able to crochet while we waited.

I don’t think I ever realized how therapeutic crocheting could be, but I now plan to have a crochet bag in my car at all times!

I already have a hook that fits in the pen holder section of my purse.

So, my fellow hookers, I’m asking you to put together an Emergency Crochet Pack.
Nothing fancy – just a hook (favorite size, of course 😉 ) and a small ball or skein of yarn.? Put it in a resealable plastic bag, and keep it in the glove box, or under the seat – or in the trunk – just make sure you have it close-by wherever you go!

  1. I hope all is well with your daughter (though, if you’re calm enough to talk Emergency Crochet Packs, all probably is well).

    I love me some stashed-away projects. For Christmas I bought myself this extra-big purse for the sole purpose of having the space to stash away a small project. You know, should the need arise.

  2. Sorry to hear your child was so sick. BTDT It’s so hard to see children ill when there’s nothing you can do. Hope she is feeling herself again soon.
