My MIL Rocks!

And here's why:

She sent Hubby and me to a Joan Jett concert. (This link has a pop up of her new video) I love Joan Jett. Seriously! She was rocking! And she looks absolutely amazing! I was close enough (standing right at the edge of the stage) to reach out and touch her. (If I shoved this one woman out of my way) LOL Before Hubby and I moved up to the edge of the stage, I was actually asked to sit down. At a rock concert! Yeah, right. I needed to go up to the stage and dance! It was so great!

There were a lot of older people there. I mean 70s or older. It was in a casino, and they probably got free tickets for being such good gamblers. I was saving my ticket, but I left it in my wallet, in my jacket, and washed my jacket. Urhg! It and a couple of pics (which I have more of) of the kids were the only things that got ruined.






So, that was Friday. Saturday, LD went on a Girl Scout Trip. I was a little sad to miss it, but I had quite a peaceful weekend. SP had to work, and MM was at his friends. Lucky us, we got a tiny little break from constantly taking care of someone else! Another little honeymoon. hehehe

Luckily, Carrie and another mom I really trust went and I didn't have to worry too much about LD being away for the whole night! And I got to knit..knit..knit. I finished the two pair of booties, and started another pair. Here's a pic of the booties, yarn for the next booties, and some yarn LD dyed. I think she could give me a run for my money on the dyeing! This is left over from a school project. They dyed yarn (FUN) and did a braiding project. I haven't seen it yet, but I can't wait!

Sunday, Hubby and I went to another concert. This one was quite different. LOL We went to church with the MIL and saw The Staffmen Quartet. They are pretty neat. We've seen them once a year for a few years. We aren't regular church people. The church we like is a bit of a drive and you know about the stupid gas prices, so .... plus, we're lazy and like to sleep in on Sundays, but we didn't have to get kids ready, and it was a nice break to actually go and sit with the grown ups and listen to some church music.


Oh my gosh! The funniest thing about the whole weekend was that the woman who plays the organ at MIL's church was at the concert! The Joan Jett concert! So was another lady who goes to Carrie's church! I don't know how old they are, but past their 70s, I bet! I know they got free tickets for being 'Gold Card Member Gamblers'. The organ lady told Donnie's mom that the concert was kind of raunchy, but ok. LOL!

Then, Sunday night we got to have some delicious morels from Donnie's cousin for supper.

I really appreciate all of the good friends and family we have. They give us good times, and good stuff! Just Kidding. But really, thanks guys!


I also appreciate all of the comments I receive from all of you great knit bloggers! Hopefully, when all of the end of the school year craziness dies down, I'll be able to catch up on my commenting!!!!




Knit on!



p.s. I just posted on my fo blog about the baby booties!
