SOCKS!!! I love them! I love the ankle socks, knee high socks, thigh high socks, funky socks, "proper" socks, ANY kind of socks! I have a basket full of socks! So, OF course I signed me up for SITM round 2! What's better then getting socks? Buying the PERFECT pair for your buddy! I hope my sock buddy liked her socks. I know I LOVE mine!
It's no secret that things have been a little bit rough for me since that lovely day in January (the 7th, to be exact) when I decided to move a box of dishes by myself and broke my damn knuckle. I've been through doctors poking and prodding at my hand, asking me "how EXACTLY did you do this, again?!", a few needles full of the yummy numb juice, and of course surgery to fix the damn thing. Through all of the whinnying and bitching, ALL of you have been there. Not one person told me to stop complaining, but instead loved me through the whole thing.
The day I got my stitches out, I was nervous because I didn't know what to expect. I had gotten a package in the mail from Stacie that morning and my SOCKS WERE IN IT!!! I immediately tore open the package and squealed with delight to see not one but TWO pairs of socks! I took off my shoes and socks and put on a pair of my SITM socks and felt a calm. Stacie was going with me to my appointment :D I made it through the removal of my stitches without incident and I thought of Stacie and everything she's been through. I conjured her strength through my socks. I thought of all the support I've received from this AMAZING community. Ya'll have been there to celebrate the good times and allow me to use your shoulders when I need them. These socks are concrete proof of all of that proof.
Thank you Stacie, you picked out great socks! If wearing my SITM socks can help me not pass out during stitches removal 2010, then your socks can help you go through anything you're going through!
Go on over to Kym's blog, our lovely hostess, and read the other SITM posts. You will NOT be disappointed!
