Motley? Yep, motley because I dye yarn to knit in many colors. Motley also means of many different or clashing elements, and that sums me, and my life up pretty well.

Poor MM, he is 13, and the middle child! He'd give you the shirt off his back, though. So, yesterday, he wanted me to play a video game with him. I said yes, but only if I picked the game. So, I chose, and he said "No, I hate that game. I can't play it...on & on". Well, I am the MOM, so we started the game I chose. In this game, you pile up tiles in certain color order. So, I'm beating him like crazy and I glance over to his side of the screen, and he is piling the wrong colors on each other. Oh my gosh! I forgot for a second, (BAD MOM) that my son is colorblind!!!! I started laughing like a mad woman, and he says. "I told you that I can't play this game." He is red/green colorblind. He can see colors, but some look the same to him in certain light. That is a cartoony pic of him up there. It's not a very good one, but the kid never smiles in pictures, and I somehow got him to there.
Here is a pick of SP and his girlfriend. She will now be known as HG. They are so cute. And, by the way, I really am not old enough to have teenagers, but oh well!
Knitting next time, I promise!!
edited to add: MM wasn't mad. He has a great sense of humor, and now he has a funny story to hold over my head for years to come.
