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!
