Didja ever KNOW you were gonna have one of those days and want to climb back into bed in self-defense? Well, at least the sun is shining.
In the meantime I have to go to Costco today (ugh) or there will be no dinner or breakfast in this house for the rest of the week. Then, I am looking at an afternoon like this:
3:00 load tuba into (new! yay!) car
3:15 pick up Teen at the High School - lug him to music lessons
3:30 drop teen off at music lesson -rush home to make sure Puck is doing homework, getting ready to put Football gear on.
4:00 Back to pick up Teen and then drop him off at Music Focus Group appointment at other end of town.
4:30 rush home to feed Puck dinner, get him ready for football - get tuba OUT of (new!yay!) car.
4:45 car pool Puck and two neighbor boys to football practice.
5:15 head back to other end of town to pick up Teen from Music Focus Group - bring him home make sure he has food and is stationed in the office doing homework.
6:00 debate about whether or not I should go WATCH football practice.
6:15 leave to go watch the end of football practice.
7:00 drop off neighbor kids that need rides - feed Puck again as he will be ravenous.
7:30 Teen will be hungry again and there will nothing in the house he wants to eat.
7:40 curl up in fetal position.
On the plus side - I have 1.5 oz of yarn left to finish up my Arwen; that's about 7 1/2 inches of hood remaining.
I've also had this fun little cable needle to use for this project. I ordered a set of three when I got my options Harmony tips. Sorry - not the best photo - I was trying to get it before the battery fizzed out.
Also - if you collect sock patterns - free or otherwise The Daily Chum had one listed today, and it's a free download - very cute! The Bracket Fungus Socks - great name!
ETA: Ms. Nuttnbunny drew my name in her Pay it Forward contest! That means I have the rest of the month to collect names to pay it forward. I think I'll draw three names on 10/27 (that's our 17th anniversary!) and in the meantime, I will choose some lovely items from my stash to pass on! You just need to promise to do the same!
Tomorrow: sock yarn!
And Costco is the perfect place with hungry teen boys. Don't you wish they could learn to do the shopping and feed themselves some days?
Ok, sometime when you are not quite so busy actually using the (new!yay!) vehicle :)
Love the pictures of Kona. So glad to see him.
I know how busy you are - been there, done that, still doin' that with the kids. A new vehicle sure makes the day brighter!
BTW, Squeeeee! Hockeyman made B1! Hope the crossed fingers didn't cause the tinking problem.
Thank you for linking my bracket fungus socks - I'm very glad you like them and from the look of your work you are certainly a sock connoisseur - praise indeed!
