Warning: Cranky Post Ahead

Well, first I want to say to everyone thank you for your nice comments. I'll be sending emails soon.
Ericajo that yarn is Sugar & Cream from Lily. It was the weirdest thing the way it pooled like that. Just some variegated cotton. I love pooling. :)
But Ericajo's question made me finally get off my butt and start another blog! Arleta's Motley Wool FO's. It'll just be pics with the stats on yarn, needles, all that stuff. I'll save the juicy life bits (which I am going to p & m about in a minute) for here.
Gaiagal, that sounds like a weird combo, but I'll try just about anything, if the thought of it doesn't make me gag. I just won't tell the family what's in it, until after they eat it!
Ok, if you want a happy post, like I usually have, sorry you aren't going to find it here. One reason my posts are usually happy is because I sit down, and as I'm typing I feel so much better that I edit out stuff. It just doesn't fit any more. Well, today isn't turning out so great, it started bad, but I'm hoping it'll get better!!
I borrowed this from Bezzie, (she likes snow! How weird is that?)
It's the six weird things meme with a twist
Six Things That Piss Me Off
  1. The parking lots at my kids' schools. People are morons and don't know how to drive or follow rules. The elementary one was so bad that the principal stands out there directing traffic and that has made it even worse! If your kid can't jump out of the car, go to a parking spot and park the car. Don't leave it in the middle of the driveway! Kids with casts or crutches shouldn't have to tromp through snow to get into the school!
  2. People who make my Little Diva cry! I shouldn't be angry at a second grader, but this one girl gave her a best friend necklace, then took it back the next day, and gave it to someone else. I kept my cool and made LD feel better, but I felt like crying, too. Why are kids so mean?
  3. Smart people who act like they are stupid. Enough said on that one.
  4. People who act like they know everything! (I don't even know everything!) People who won't admit they are wrong. It's hard, but even I can do it.
  5. Rude people. Man, use some tact!
  6. Loosing a big bunch of money, and all the credit cards, and id. Ugh. I feel sick. Hubby lost his wallet yesterday, and it had all of our cash, which we need for food and bills. It had our credit card, a work credit card, and the debit card that is for our health care. His driver's license. Everything. I personally know some people who would be like "$400? Go to the bank and get more money out. No big deal." Yeah, big deal to us! We're poor. That's just a fact of life. I stay home, and it makes us rich in love, but money is tight around here. Plus, Hubby woke me up at 4 a.m. looking for his wallet, and I'm tired. Tired and worried and cranky are never a good combo!

I just have to say this weekend better not go like this! It had better be nice. (not the weather, I know that's going to be crappy). The vibes better be nice! If you pray, pray we find that stupid wallet before I go crazy and have to spend my entire life knitting hats after I rip out all of my hair!

I found the wallet! Thanks to who the heck ever said the prayer or magic words or what the heck ever worked! I swear it was sitting right where Hubby and I already looked. I was done looking but as I was getting a biscuit to eat with my lunch ... There it was. I am so totally relieved. Thanks for the good vibes, all!!

$400? OUCH! I think I'd have tore my hair out already.. We had a money order for $133 lost in the mail about a month ago and are having a hell of a time getting it back. I'm so sorry!

Man, that sucks. That is a lot of money to most people. I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't bemoan the loss of that much money.

Julie said...

Oh, so sorry you're having such a crappy day! Hopefully the wallet will turn up fully intact!

I'm so with you on your #2. My Little Diva is 21 and I still get pissed off when someone hurts her! I don't think you ever stop feeling their pain.

Brynne said...

I'm so glad you found the wallet! We would be in SO much trouble if we lost that much...

tiennie said...

Yay!! So glad you found it! I hope your weekend is looking better for you!

Mindy said...

Glad you found the wallet. $400 is a huge amount to lose.

I am also happy that I can see you today. Yesterday, Blogger wouldn't let me read you at all. Stinking Blogger.

whew, that was a close one. glad you found your hubby's wallet!!! $400 is a lot..esp. at the beginning of the month! :( Ugh..poor LD--I'm amazed you didn't give that other lil girl a piece of your mind! But you have tact. ;) oh, people do that double parking thing EVERYWHERE. It's so obnoxious. I don't like people who think they know everything too. What's the point in that?? hope you have a good weekend!

Kadiddly said...

Ohh! I'm so glad you found it! What a relief that must be!

Hope that starts the rest of your weekend off right!

Carrie said...

You know smart people who act stupid? Really? Why the heck would they do that?? Glad you found the wallet. Have a great weekend! Sorry kids are mean. Doesn't that make you want to give the little offender a talking to about kindness???

schrodinger said...

Oh fantastic, I was just about to post to wish you lots of luck in finding the wallet, and then saw your edit. I'm so happy for you, what a relief!!!1

Mama Bear said...

Good to see you found the wallet! I have a way of finding things in just the spot someone else looked. I can't take any credit though as I didn't even read about the lost wallet until it was already found! ;)

Janice said...

I am so glad you found the wallet! I can see why you needed to vent!! When I lose something it consumes me until it is found!

Isn't it amazing how mean kids can be? And how much it can hurt to have our kids the brunt of the cruelty! Being a mom is never easy!!! Hang in there, it sounds like you are doing a GREAT job!!!

Wool Winder said...

Sounds like the weekend is looking up. Have a good one.

Nora said...

YAY for happy endings!

Terri D. said...

Love you AR (my most loyal commenter), and so glad that wallet turned up. As for the "mean girl" rescinded necklace thing, I think it's a matter of mothers modeling behavior for their daughters. The wisest thing DH has ever said: "Big cats have little kittens."

Amy Boogie said...

I'm so with you on thos complaints. little girls are the meanest.

I'm glad you found hubby's wallet. From one SAHM to another, I cry if I lose $10 let alone 2 weeks worth bill money :)

del said...

I'm so glad you found dh's wallet!!! $400 IS a lot of money!!

Momo said...

OMG, thank goodness y'all found it! I know what you mean about not being able to go without a missing 400.

It's good to let off some steam. Rant away. I hate the school parking lots and you wouldn't believe what really goes on with second grade girls!!! It would ake for the worst (or would that be he best? ) reality television.

Jeri said...

Yay!! I'm glad the wallet is found.
