Well well well

Looks like I should read my own blog once in a while. Sorry for the wacky previous post. To begin where "it" left off. Great Dane at the shelter. Was gonna get him. Long story short, he was adopted, thank goodness!!! Beautiful Blue Merle 1 year old baby whose owner passed away. Very sad puppy, not eating and apparently sick. So very glad he was adopted.

This has been a very weird week. It seems my body has decided to start "the change". Ahem. Let me take this opportunity to apologize to my wonderful DD and BF. They do not deserve this. I am normally a very, very, very patient person. Not so much this week. Example, DD and I are very close and have just a ton of fun together, no matter what we're doing......I made her cry twice this week. Example #2: Called WBF, sobbing I said "I have to tell you some things....I made a list of things I haven't told you yet and, and sniffle, snort, sob" Poor guy thought we were breaking up!!! My list? As embarrassing as it is, here goes: 1. I paid the credit card bill on-line as we discussed. 2. Shall I pay sears on-line? 3. DD is going to the football game friday. Yeah...crazy I am. Please, please you two, don't run away, although I wouldn't blame you if you did!!! Hate this. Hate cranky, hate bitchy, hate weepy~~more like sobby, hate anxiousy feeling like I'm gonna explode from the inside.......To my awesome loved ones, please be patient, meds are coming!

What have I been knitting? Put the Somewhat cowl on hold so the 2nd pair of Slinky Socks could be finished for DD. (side note: washed and dried the first pair...bad, do not put in the dryer, shrunk and sorta felted! Upside, they're now mine!) Guess she got loads of complements on a pair of ankle socks I made her and the kids and some of her teachers want to see more!! Go figure that one. The rush is on. And besides, I haven't finished a pair of socks in eons. The Crusoe's are still on the needles!! The excitement I'm feeling about my knitting is a wonderful balance right now. With the DD getting older and all the activities with school, my weekend evenings are spent waiting up for her. (BF works ALL the time and goes to bed very early.) Sure I could clean and do laundry, no thank you. I get closets cleaned out. This Friday and Saturday night are going to be spent in the knitting zone. The desire to finish a top and actually wear it is eerie. It has been the process for me, now I want results. The socks come first, hopefully completed this weekend.

1. Slinky socks
2. Somewhat cowl
3. Crusoe socks
4. finish 2 dishcloths on the needles
5. Square for Grandma Purl

Thank you for indulging my poopy post! Love ya and have a great weekend!!!!

Finally got my computer back!! My work computer died a few weeks ago, hence the lack of blogging! Always an excuse I suppose. Well a quick catch up: Work is crazy as usual this time of year. Knitting: finishing up a gift for my cousin. Baby shower Saturday. I knitted up a couple pairs of booties and almost done with the hat. I will be knitting her some bibs from the Mason Dixon Knitting book, which I got thanks to a generous Barnes & Noble gift card I received for my birthday from very very good friends. It's a fantastic book!!! Received the circular needles from KnitPicks I needed to continue on the Somewhat Cowl. Those options needles are marvelous. My new favorites.

I've also joined Knit a Square for Grandmother Purl. Check it out here. If you're at all familiar with Laurie aka Crazy Aunt Purl you already know about this. Many thanks and kudos to Kristi for coordinating this wonderful project. Now I need to find some wonderful soft luscious yarn for my square.

Doggie news: Some of you may remember we had to put our Great Dane Penelope down back in February and we've been through 2 other pups that well, were not a good fit for us. Sunday we got a call from someone letting us know there was a Great Dane at the
Question for the Magic 8 Ball: Will I survive DDs years between the ages of 16 & 18???? Doubtful!! LOLOL
Question #2 for the Magic 8 Ball: Will my mother EVER understand me????? Doubtful!
A few more things which need no elaboration!!
A. I need another vacation.
b. I need another day off.
c. I want to knit all day
d. I want to win the lottery
e. I'm going to have another Drunken Knitting Day at my house soon.
Must get back to work now......hopefully next post will be picture packed. Until next time my dears.........KNIT ON.
