Merry Christmas Y'all!

Well Christmas is upon us. Seems like it got here awfully quick. Things are very s l o w at the office so we've made up our party menu and Christmas dinner menu. We are having a get together Friday night at my sisters house. Hopefully we will have lots of people and good fun! Last year things got particularly crazy when people started rolling down the hill that is my sisters front lawn.

My aunt isn't doing very well though. She's back in the hospital in ICU. Her heart is only pumping at 20% and she's had a few blood clots in her legs. We know she probably will not be with us much longer and thats really hard. Of all her brothers and sisters, Mom is closest to this aunt. We also know that when she is gone my uncle will not last long in all probability. But we are trying to enjoy Christmas and family and be thankful for the time we have.

Over the past few months I've met and discovered some of the greatest people thru knitting blogs, knitting groups and such. Such warm nice people they are. Makes one thankful for the internet for making it possible to connect with people of the same interests.

Merry Christmas to all, and happy knitting too!

It's all about the Merry and Bright BABY!!! this past Saturday I drove Mom up to Dallas to see her sister who has been very ill and in all reality will not be with us very much longer. She hates to ask us to drive her up there, but I knew she wanted to go check on my aunt so we bought a few goodies and presents and headed up there. I'm not going to go into the bad stuff and my rant on stubborn people or how sad the situation is, because people reading this have enough to deal with. AND this post is about MERRY and BRIGHT DAMMIT!

Ok, while there admiring their little Christmas tree that Mom and a friend had put up for them at Thanksgiving, I mentioned I wanted to get one of those cute trees. Then I went to run some errands for them and buy groceries and such. When I got back my uncle had pulled down a little 4 foot tree from the attic for me. It's just the cutest thing! In a red wicker basket and its VERY full, and has pine cones and berries in it. So, I've brought it to my office and it's half decorated and awaiting the finishing touches this afternoon.

This little tree is just what I needed to put the BRIGHT back in my attitude.

Gotta to do but remember it's ALL about the MERRY and BRIGHT BAYBEEEEE!!!

Stash Enhancement

Well my yarn stash has somehow multiplied in the last month. It's...growing rapidly! That is a wonderful and scary thing lol. And for someone who wasn't going to do any Christmas knitting...I suddenly find myself with several Christmas projects. Hmm...

Well and I did get a small Christmas tree and put it in my office. It's only half decorated but I'm getting there!

Well I'll write more soon...must break out the needles and get to stitchin!!

Oh Christmas Tree

Oh Christmas Tree
How lovely are thy branches...

I so want a CHRISTMAS TREE, that I can hardly stand it!!!!!!

I can't afford one...well I could afford a small one, so lets rephrase that. I can't afford a big tree, ornaments, and lights. Also, it does seem a shame considering I'm not home all that much. However we have the office decorated SOO cute and all festive like that its almost depressing to go home to my undecorated house. Yes, I know the cats would probably trash it. I. WANT. A. TREE.

I want to be Merry and Bright Dammit!

Its the little things

Cold weather
big pot of soup simmering in the kitchen all day (ok kitchen at the office but still)
Hot apple cider
sneaking shortbread cookies
putting the finishing touches on the office decorations
big comfy flannel pj pants
warm fuzzy socks
ARM WARMERS (hand knit I might add)
Lady curled in her bed looking at me like "would you turn the damn heat up already"
The cats running wild cuz they dig the cold weather too
Hot tea (yeah I know its a wonder I'm not running to the bathroom with all the hot drinks going on)

And last but not least...The Nutcracker. Thats right...years ago...I think around 1985 or so I watched a version of the Nutcracker ballet on PBS, that was introduced by Tony Randall and narrated by....I can't remember her name. I LOVED it. I of course taped it and proceeded to wear that tape OUT. I've watched other productions of the nutcracker but I LOVED this one. The others not so much. Before there was g o o g le I surfed the net far and wide to find this version. I found out the dancers were from the Pacific Northwest Ballet. I wrote PBS, I wrote the Pacific Northwest Ballet to see if a copy could be purchased. Mind you this was YEARS later. It was no longer for sale, being produced or available. I was crushed. However every year I get the bug and look again...just KNOWING someone is gonna put it on ebay eventually. I've found other people on the internet searching for the same production. Lo I have at last found it. At no less, previously used, and sold by a third party or something, but I FOUND IT. And yes I did BUY it. It arrived today. I cannot tell you the joy this used VHS tape in my mailbox brought me.

Now does anyone know how I can get it put on a dvd? :)

I'm off to get warm and snuggle in my bed with the cats and watch NUTCRACKER The Motion Picture.

Is it wrong that I'm wishing for a snow day so that I can stay home, and KNIT?

Happy Belated Thanksgiving

Well I had hoped to do a post about Thanksgiving and the things I'm thankful for. Haven't been near a computer until yesterday, and then I didn't feel the blogging muse. We did not have a traditional Thanksgiving this year. My aunt and uncle that live in Carrollton (a 2 hour drive from my house) have been in poor health the last year. There have been so many hospitalizations and such, and then they both just had pacemakers put in this month. Since work is slowing down Mom decided to go up and spend the week of Thanksgiving with them. Dad drove her up on the 17th and that night they had to take my aunt to the ER. After a few days of a drug induced coma and being on a respirator she has been moved out of ICU. Their two children are no longer living, and the only immediate family they have is a grandson and his wife. I will not go into my thoughts on THAT, but lets say they are not around. They are not of any help. Mom stayed at the house with my uncle driving him back and forth to the hospital for visiting hours, while their church family stayed in the ICU waiting room at all times for us. My sister and I arrived Thursday afternoon and headed to the hospital for the next visit. Joyce and Lois the two ladies that have "adopted" my aunt and uncle have spent every night there in the waiting room. We had never met them but heard about them at great lengths. They instant grabbed us both in hugs saying there is no "nice ta meetcha here, you give us a hug" lol great ladies! They are a hoot and such a blessing to my aunt and uncle.

It's a sad sad situation. They need constant care but refuse to go into assisted living. They moved into their daughters house before she passed away and so they have a house full of things that they can't keep up with and no longer want or need. The grandsons wife doesn't want any of it. I fear one day soon we will lose one of them and while I know its hard to face ones mortality they refuse to deal with the legalities of everything. My aunt does everything, while unconsious in the hospital we were at a loss trying to figure out the massive amounts of medicine for my uncle, how he can refill his prescriptions or get money from the bank. He knew nothing. They have endured so much losing both their daughter and son unexpectedly, that I can't imagine.

So no turkey or dressing (stuffing for some) or pie or fruit salad this year. But walking in to that hospital room before we left with my aunt sitting up and able to talk was enough to be thankful for.

Holiday Limbo

Let it be said that I am fully aware I need help. Conversation with myself to follow. Don't let it scare you...all the people on my planet talk to themselves.

True Natural Holiday Loving Self, hence forward known as Nerdself
Pessimistic, cautious, more reality based self, hence forward known as Brain.

Nerdself: OK OK ITS HERE! It's time to START the festivities!!! The Holiday Season has COMMENCED!

Brain: Huh? Has it? Are you sure? I mean really sure? I don't think it is, the Holidays are still a long way off.

Nerdself: NO NO it really is! Thanksgiving is next week! That Dallas radio station has started the 24 hour Christmas music!

Brain: Yeah but they do that crap early! They've had Christmas decorations out since July man! I really don't think its time to Commence the Holiday Glee just yet.

Nerdself: DUDE your MOTHER who has not decorated for Christmas in 10 years bought a basketful of decorations for her desk and the ledge around her "area". YOUR MOM!!! Your SISTER put up her Christmas tree before turkey day! That is like...snowballs in hell or somethin! Admit it!

Brain: Ok, yes you are right about Mom and Sis. I'm just not sure its safe to let go. I mean I've spent over a month forcefully holding back "The Holiday Glee" because it just wasn't TIME yet. Its early know you have to control yourself scare folks.

Nerdself: Fa La La La Laaaaa! I know you think you are fooling people by just listening to a few Trans-Siberian Orchestra songs while you were making that "Mix" Christmas cd but you know you totally wanted to listen to the whole thing! Look at the shiny mini trees all over the ledge of your Mom's area! They are caaaaallling to you.

Ok, aside from the fact I need serious help, does anyone else feel this way? It's like WAIT FOR IT....wait for it....wait for it....Ok NOW go forth with the Holiday Glee! Then you kinda aren't in the mood any more? I'm just sayin. I know it will come back but I'm not feeling very Holiday-ish but does that count cuz its not exactly the Holiday-ish time yet? Yes I do believe my brain is over thinking this one. I'm going to go put on a little Fats Domino Christmas (don't laugh, its the BEST. TOE TAPPING. Christmas cd EVER!

p.s. I did buy red yarn last night. Hobby Lobby is have an S.A.L.E! Yay!

a melted puddle of cuteness

**edit** Ok I can't get the darn link to work so I'll simply insert the pic I was refering to. I highly recommend the website though!!

It is just THE cutest thing in the world. I'm unable to work. I'm hypnotized by the cuteness.

talk about cute overload! Sheesh!

unhappy knitting

The knitting is going not so well. The SWS scarf looks all wonky and is going to be frogged as soon as I work up to it. The black and white scarf does not look like the picture in my head. I'm going to try smaller needles to see if it improves and if not I think I'm going to need different yarn. The wrap? Do you hear the wail of despair? I didn't work on it last night when I got home but decided I needed to do at least one row on it before bed. So I settled on the bed in my PJ's and started. Lil Bit made herself comfy in my lap after giving me the evil look because I wouldn't lay down so that she could lay on top of me (as she prefers). All was fine until her stubborn streak came out and she turned in my lap trying to put her head right through the middle of my circular needles....and unraveling several stitches. Now on normal yarn with a normal pattern, no prob. I can pick up the stitches. This slippery stuff in a lace pattern? I don't think I'll be able to. I tried...and it took 5 minutes to try and pick up 3 stitches because I couldn't get a good hold on the needles and that damn slippery yarn. I did my best and finished the row. There is a hole there still and I can't tell where the dropped stitches are. I'll try and make it look not too bad and pick them up on the next go round. I knew I would have to be very careful with this because I seriously doubt the yarn would survive frogging. It would get tangled. So...what to do what to do. I just can't get my knitting grove on! :(

Does this look like the face of a cat who could unravel my first lace wrap?

Its beginning to look a lot like...

Christmas? Sort of? Well after discussing it, my sister and I decided we would not have time over the Thanksgiving holiday to put up her tree and the office tree. Therefore yesterday we drug out the Christmas stuff and put up the tree. I wasn't feeling very Christmasy even though it was actually chilly yesterday and we even put on some Christmas cd's and lit the candles in the fireplace. This afternoon Home Alone was on tv and then....the animated How the Grinch Stole Christmas. ??? Already? Now that sounds silly because I myself have been watching Christmas movies for a couple of weeks now. However I'm strange and I do that when I'm depressed. And even though its actually getting somewhat close and its only a couple weeks to turkey day I feel less and less in the spirit. Hmmm...have to work on that. I haven't put up a tree in I didn't have one and two the cats (well Abby) being the little twit that she is would likely destroy it. I would like to try one this year...but I've lost my ornaments. So don't know if I will.

In Knitting News: I've started my first lacy wrap. I'm totally not going to have enough yarn but I'm determined to go as far as I can. I also bought some Lion Brand microfiber in black and white and I'm going to do a black and white scarf. I'm using circulars for the first time on the wrap...its really taking some getting use to. The short needles and the really slippery yarn is giving my thumb quite the workout that I'm sure I'll pay for tomorrow. I've spent day being totally and completely lazy save for some knitting and looking at knitting patterns. Oh and ebay..I'm watching an auction of red knitting needles that I so want. I collect red (mostly antique kitchen stuff) stuff for my kitchen and I want to put the needles in a vase.

There was also a nap with the kitties. Who were OVERLY happy to see me last night when I got home after being away since Tuesday. Well I'm going to decide whether or not to bid on the needles and then settle down with some coffee to knit until I get sleepy.

Its official. Everyone knew it was coming. It was just a matter of time. Britney and K-Fed are not going to live happily ever after. Oh the heartbreak.

I mean really. I open my google homepage and there are FOUR news headlines with Britney & Kevin watch: The day after. Are you kidding me? No No this one is even better

FULL COVERAGE: Britney & Kevin's split. Full coverage? of WHAT??????

Ok, I will admit I do a little celeb reading occasionally on People. While I mostly like thier photo section (because every few days that usually have a picture of Matthew McConaughey usually shirtless on on a beach)such as this,26335,1552390_9,00.html

But am I the only one sick of seeing headlines about Britney, where Lindsey is partying, TomKat, or Madonna? I assume people really care and do read it since they keep publishing it. It's not that I'm not for a little escapism myself...but it just gets NAUSEATING. If it makes you queasy as well....look here,26335,1546577_6,00.html this will make you all warm and fuzzy again hehe. Yes double standards, hate me if you will but he is yummy and he loves his dogs. Nuff said.

Ok, I'm trying to figure out if the links don't show up to Matthew please forgive me.

If its not one thing its 40

This is what my mother said yesterday morning upon getting into the car. I live next door to the parents so Mom and I carpool at least 4 days out of the week. Next door might be deceiving, there is land between us. Don't ask how much I'm horrible at that. Maybe a little less than a football field? I dunno, I have 2 acres fenced off for my little home sweet home and Mom and Dad live on 18 acres. I've digressed eh? lol AnyWAY tonight is bunko night and its my turn to host. I'm having it at my sisters as she lives in town and I don't and she has more room. So last night I had to make a trip to the grocery store. Let me just say this. I am so not loving the grocery store. In fact, I've started to loathe the big super duper we carry everything including products from all nations AND have started making thier own version of everything stores. So I'm looking for crackers. Saltine crackers. Something most stores have an ample supply of. Two boxes of low fat crackers was IT. Then I notice a box on the floor that is open and inside are crackers! The store brand. Ok, well whatever. So I toss them in the basket and keep on down the aisle dodging kids. Next the canned veggie aisle. There was a woman who was PARKED in front of most of the canned veggies and she was digging through every can of green beans. She loads her cart with a box full and moves down a foot to start the same thing with the corn. She had 3 boys with her probably ages 9 to 13 who were wrestling, kicking, chasing and generally almost knocking over everyone in the entire row. The woman kept diligently digging through cans blocking about 5 people from getting what they need and moving on. Why is this? Why don't people have ANY regard for others any more? Also why do people not make thier children behave? There was a boy running break neck speed through the entire store and literally almost knocked my mother on her butt if she hadn't hung on to the basket. Its terrifying that no control is being exercised in this world. So between that and the large stocking machine that goes BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP sitting in the middle of the store splitting my ears my nerves were shot by the time we left. BUT before I could leave I had to get diet coke. These bunko ladies will get some irritable if they don't have their diet coke. There were about 15 two liters left...all pushed to the back of the shelf where you could not reach them even if you stepped on the shelf below. Oh but you could easily reach the store brand knock off of diet coke. See a pattern here? Hmmmm....ok there is more but I'll stop my grocery store rant at that. They closed the Albertson's which was yes higher priced but so much less crowded and noisy. One of the many reasons I avoid buying groceries. We will touch on the "overwhelming choices" rant another day.

Loose Ends in Life

We now return to our regularly scheduled program girls and boys and bloggers. Haven't posted in a while. Life happened. There were THINGS going on, and on top of that having my most number of closings in October since I've been processing. Of which I handled without breakdown, or going postal. Then things got worse. *sigh* I like to follow happy blogs. Funny bloggers. I tend to not to enjoy (as much) the sad depressing life sucks posts. So I've not blogged for that reason. I will just say that I lost my little buddy Ditto. My 15 yr old, sleeping and cuddling, man of the house gray kitty. Thats all I'm going to say because the tears they do start to flow.

On the knitting front this weekend was tying up loose ends weekend. I FINALLY put the fringe on my sisters scarf. Finshed the multi-colored long skinny scarf. Finished Mom's blue and gray scarf, and finished my wrist warmers! Whew! Couldn't use my right hand yesterday but I finished all that up! PLUS I went through my stash and organized. I also found out where all my needles were (all over the house stuck in various yarn swatches). I did this as my 21 yr old cousin was visiting and using my computer. I think he thought I was a bit nuts with all the yarn, but he very wisely didn't say anything lol. So I'm contemplating projects and patterns. I really want to do a shawl/wrap. A big lacy one done on big needles that doesn't take forever.

My sister is going out of town for the rest of the week so as of tomorrow night I'll be staying at her house to house and dog sit. No computer so I will hopefully get some knitting done! So I have to run and pack (and decide what yarn to take) and hit the sack. My head is pounding like a bass drum so I'm going to make it quick.

All tangled up in my yarn

So...the title of my post. Yes my yarn is tangled. The fuzzy yarn bee yarn of moms scarf. I just don't have the energy to tackle it tonight. I feel tangled up in my metaphorical yarn these days. Having a freakishly busy month is...I don't even know. Insane? yes. Nuts? yes. Chaotic? oh yea! How am I handlig it? so far so good. There was chocolate consumed today though. And halloween candy. dots. tootsie rolls. Shut up the stress burns off the calories. Do to.

Oh and I started some arm warmers/wristlets. I'm not entirely sure why. The urge hit Saturday and I spent a good deal of the day searching through patterns and decided on THE simplest one I found lol. I've already frogged it once though. Saturday night my bestest friend Rhonda took me to dinner for my Birthday. We were gonna go somewhere "nice" but it was Baylor homecoming therefore there were about an extra million people in Waco. So we ended up at Pappa Rollo's pizza. O.M.G. I try not to eat pizza and do so rarely. BUT if you are ever in waco and you love pizza? Go! Even if you just like pizza go because its a cool place. Lots of history there folks. Then a stop at starbucks for a peppermint mocha and back to her house to sit on her back porch with a fire and my knitting. AHHHH it was lovely. PLUS I got halfway through with uh another scarf. I've GOT to get a camera...*sigh*

ok off to bed with me, tomorrow is another day to tackle!

Thursday, October 19, 2006


I've meant to post the last few nights. *SIGH* Work is kicking my butt and there is just nothing left of my mind by the time I drag myself home. I have been knitting. I've started a scarf for Mom with some yarn bee yarn that she picked out. Which just so happened to be the exact same yarn I just made a scarf out of for my sister (that she picked out). So yeah they picked out the same yarn, months apart without knowing it. My sister wanted a very wide and very long scarf so it took me quite a while and I'm not to excited about doing it again. I like the yarn, its so soft and fuzzy and yummy you just want to wrap it around you. It can be difficult to knit with though. Once you get in a rhythm its not bad. However Mom doesn't want a wide one, she just picked it out because it goes with all of her navy blue clothes. I have been practicing stitches though. A new one every night! I'll be able to tackle that sock again before long!

It is finally starting to feel like fall though! YEA!!!! *doing a tired happy dance* I actually got to WEAR a scarf this morning. Back up to 78 tomorrow though. Hopefully it will stay cool soon. The animals are LOVING it. Lady won't even come in side she's enjoying it so much and the cats are P L A Y F U L! Well...that may be an understatment. Abby just slid from one end of the house to the other lol.

I hear the Texas knitters get together in Austin last weekend was a hit. I so hope they do it again soon so I can go! Well I'm going to crawl into bed and work on Mom's scarf. "Bringing up Baby" is on TCM...don't ya just love Cary Grant? *G*

Rainy day sundays

Well I did finish the birthday scarf for my cousin in time and I think she really liked it. We had a great time last night. A low key get cousin and I attempted to make mojito's. We did it wrong but they came out pretty good! Lots of laughing envolved!

Its a cool rainy day today. One of those lovely days that just beg you to stay curled up with the kitties watching movies or reading or knitting. I do have to at least sweep up the cat hair and do some laundry...but I definately think there will be some snuggling and napping with the brats today.

and planning of the next knitting project. I have some more gift to get started on however I'm going to have to figure out how to use some from my stash...the new air conditioner has cut off my fiber budget for a while.

Don't knit angry boys and girls

So yeah...knitting in anger can cause your gauge to get really screwed up lol HOWEVER it does calm you down. Rather quickly too...what is it about that repetitive rhythm that is just so soothing? Dunno but I'm almost done with the Birthday scarf for Saturday! Pretty colors...but I just can't get in love with boucle yarn. I don't know why? I just have a hard time with it and I can't use steel I had to frog it 3 times before switching to plastic needles and it was better.

Having a sucky week. My air conditioner went out and considering even though its almost mid Oct. it is still 80+ here in Tx so I need my a/c. I never run my heat regardless but I need my a/c. I'm not going to mention here how much its going to cost me. I. DONT. WANT. TO. THINK. ABOUT IT! seriously depressing. There goes my trip to Austin Saturday to meet Stalker Angie and the other TX knit bloggers.

:( not a happy camper

Wednesday, October 11, 2006

are you sure you knit?

I do. Really. There has been much knitting. Short bursts of marathon knitting. I've even managed to get used to knitting while riding in the car without getting car sick! Must finish the scarf by Saturday!

I will get a camera soon to post pics!

Fair and Rodeo and stuffs

Here in the big city of Waco it is time for the fair and rodeo. A big to-do around here. I haven't gone in YEARS. However it is across the street from where I now work. AND I, working here on a Saturday, have watched hundreds and hundreds of people going to and fro.

Why am I working on a Saturday? Because Oct (normally a slow month)suddenly has EXPLODED. We are possibly going to have our biggest month ever. Stressed? Me? Naw!

I didn't do ALL work today...I found some new knitting blogs heh. It's like the dark side. I would be over there working a file and the computer is saying...but you didn't finish looking at that new site you found!

Sheesh! I need help. But I gotta get back and wrap it up. Oh and in knitting news...the socks? not so good. I have started a scarf for a Birthday present...uh next saturday. Don't's on BIG needles hehe

Tuesday, October 03, 2006

I did it

Today I was checking out a knit blog and the referenced as a sock tutorial

Katherine is doing a sock tutorial knit along. She has assured blogland that even if you have never knit socks before and are a beginner you can do this. That I can do this. She said so. She seems sure. I am not so sure. I did print out the pattern and lesson one. Then I skipped on over to the store. Yep I did. DPN's. BOUGHT THEM. OMG they are so freaking TINY. I mean you are looking (well you know what I mean) at the girl who as 4 pairs of 9.5mm needles. I LIKE big needles. They don't aggrevate my thumb and things knit up faster. I have cast on the 55sts. I know you people knit socks. Do you KNOW how tiny these things are? I'm so gonna lose them.

The next problem is yarn. I don't know a hill of beans about yarn. All this pretty wool you see on other peoples blogs? My LYS don't have that. They have cool yarn. Pretty fuzzy fun yarn. Regular yarn. I don't know what sock yarn is! Yes I know you are shaking your head and smiling at me bemused. Thinking poor girl doesn't have a clue. You would be right.

I did find some Lion Brand that had one of those nifty pics on the band of socks and it says something like hey you can make socks with this. Yeah. Lets cross our fingers for Katherine and Lion yarn!

Antiques and Autumn

Is it possible to feel like an antique in your early thirties? Yeah ok I know everyone older than that is groaning. I'm just tired. No, make that worn ass out. For those of you that don't speak Texan bare with me. You know the previous post where I had no spoons. I still don't. I wasn't home all weekend. What did I do? Helped move antiques. Real antiques. Lots and lots and lots of antiques. I'm sore. And did I mention tired? You think about those items that have been passed around over the years. Sold and bought to end up on a dusty shelf waiting for someone to come along and love it enough to take it home.

On a happier note...TGI Fridays has not been a favorite of mine...but I went Sat. night and they have excellent mojito's!!!! Yum! AND they have this new fried mac and cheese thing...OMG. Stay away! Fattening overload. I mean as if mac and cheese isn't artery clogging enough already? Lets FRY it! Yeah they are amazingly scrumptious.

So I didn't have time to check out all the knitting blogs today, but good news for the yarn harlot! Go check it out!

Welcome October! Fall is here (unless you are in TX)! People have started to decorate and at the store everyone has pumpkins in their baskets! I've got start getting my fall stuff out!

I think I'm in trouble

Ok, I just realized something. My house. My house is...well it's a mess. I opened the silverware drawer and there were no spoons. As I wonder where all my spoons have gone I turn to the sink. Oh. Yeah. Haven't done those. Then as I head to the computer I see the cat food is almost empty...hmm I really hope I have some. It is not a pretty site people. I also know in the bedroom there is a massive monster of laundry that is threatening to take over. IT IS CLEAN but needs to be folded and put away. What have I been doing? Where have I been? I've been working late but not THAT late. I have been knitting. I try and do at least one row hopefully two a night on the wrap/lapgan thingie. You know one of those projects us newly knitters do because we are intimidated by a regular size afgan still. The knitting is good's just not looking like I thought it would. ANYWAY I get home, feed the kiddies, maybe check email, then knit a few rows before falling in to bed.

I really need to spend some cleaning time this weekend. And of course there are those things that have been floating around in my head all day. What things? New things. New knitterly things. I've suppressed it for what...2 weeks but the startitis (to borrow from the Harlot) is starting again. *sigh*

It's a GOOD thing I don't know more yet...I would have a problem.

Hope everyone out there in blogland has sweet dreams! One more day and the "end of month hell" that comes with my job is over. :)

Some days just suck

no matter what you do. You have to hope tomorrow will be better. Well, this is sort of a test post because blogger ate the one I did yesterday. I have starbucks in hand, and have to get super busy because I'm slammed at work.

Hope all the boys and girls out there have a non sucking day :)

Tuesday, September 26, 2006

So yeah...

Ok I created this blog a long time ago. Never did anything with it. (surprise!) Then after recently discovering the evils of Myspace...I in turn discovered a WHOLE NEW WORLD. Knit Blogs. Yeah shocked me to! There are hundreds and hundreds of women and men out there blogging about KNITTING. I actually did a happy dance. So I've been stalking their sites. Reading. Ooohing over the pretty yarn. Just lurking. But I'm so ready to start commenting. So I actually created a new blog that had to do with knitting. Yeah but then I got busy and I've forgotten the user name and password I created. I've even gone in and put every email address I have and it says it's sending me the info...but I'm not getting it. So we'll just use this one huh? Yepper!

Ok...I'm gonna start trying to figure out this blog thing and how to put links up of those other bloggers I read!

What the hell?? How did THIS happen? I ONLY wanted to post a comment on someone elses blog...I did not realize I was creating my own blog. AND it was a Pain In The Ass (PITA) to do so, so I'm damn well going to write something. I had to try like 12 user names before it would accept one.

Well what?
