This gorgeous yarn came from Jan, another Michigan knitter. It is so seriously soft! I'm going to use it for myself! Thank you, Jan!! I love it!
Well, yesterday I thought I'd steal a little time for posting after I had an unbelievably crazy day, but the internet went down!
Here's how the crazy Monday started:
In the middle of the night, the answering machine kept going off, talking to itself. I finally got up at 5 and shut it off. So, when we got up for school, the phone was total static, no calls could come in or out. (I thought) So, after taking the kids to school, I went to my mom's to call the phone company, and I couldn't get through. (Big surprise!) So, I chatted for a bit, then left to go to the post office, and run errands.
As I was driving past my house, I saw the cops pulling up to my door! So, I pulled around back and ran around the house. I was scared something happened to one of the kids, or something. The police man asked if this was Arleta's house. (pronouncing my name wrong) and I was like "Yes, Arleeeeta." (Not Arletta) and he said "Is she alright?" He sounded worried. I said "Yep, I'm standing right here. Why?"
That's when he told me a 911 hang up call went out from my house and when they tried to call back all they got was static! I told him the cat and dog were the only ones home, since I had been at my mom's trying to call the phone company, and he said ok and left.
Later, I got to thinking what if I hadn't been who I said I was. He never asked for i.d. That's a little bit scary!
I just got back from 'work'. I'm hoping this gig will turn into a real job! I LOVE being a stay at home mom, but the choice may be taken away from me, and if I have to work outside the home, I guess there could be worse jobs. It's close, and the boss seems to understand that my kids still need me.
It's almost time to go get the kids, but I thought I'd try to sneak a little update in here. I've been typing all day, anyway. ;)
I've been knitting on my UFO Jaywalkers, I started LD's Topi, and I've been trying to make myself knit the never-ending red squares for SP's blanket. Poor MM, I have to come up with something to knit for him, too. All of that makes for some boring pictures.
I have 30 or so emails from y'all, friends, and family that I need to get to. I just want to say Thank You for the nice 'get well' wishes from everyone. I hate being sick! It is going around, though, so be careful!!
