Dear friend that I meet with Wed at 1:00

A good friend and I meet at 1:00 every Wed to knit for 1-2 hours. It is the time of the week that I most look forward to. My sanity hour if you will. This friend is the one that taught me to make socks. To magic loop. To purl. To do everything except knit. The knitting was taught in a 10 minute period of time at a MOF GWO by neglectedkids.

So this dear wed friend of mine allowed me to borrow one of her knitpick #2 nickel plated circular to finish a sock.. because I broke mine. When she handed her beloved needle over she said "Just don't break it." OF course I won't!! I will guard it with my life. I swear it! What kind of friend would borrow, then break their dear friends needle. Not me! Certainly not me.

Dear Wed friend,
Your new needles will be here in 4 to 14 days.

To pee, or not to pee?

That is the question.

To my son the answer is "yes." Right off the bed and onto the floor.

For the last several weeks my son's room has smelled like urine. I kept finding wet spots on the carpet, and getting mad at the dog. I have been rather shocked because in the 3 years that we have owned the dog she has never had an "accident." It would seem that the poor dog was taking one for the team. Mr. Perfect heard our son up in his room the other night so he went to make sure all was well. There was my adorable child kneeling on his bed peeing on the floor.

Know of any good odor controllers? Time for new carpet anyway I suppose.

I have had "one of those" days. The kind where your heart feels like it will jump out of your chest any second, and your children do not dare come near.

But I am all better now. My long awaited KnitPicks order has arrived! I was just in the process of screaming at my perfect husband for no good reason what so ever when the doorbell rang. The angel in blue carrying a lovely box was standing there waiting to be my new best friend... Or maybe she was walking back to the truck after throwing my package between the door and screen. Either way, I think I am in love.

The whole order:
And because I know you care, piece by piece:
My brand new Nickel plated circular, interchangeable needle set WITH CARRYING CASE!! Booyah! I almost got the Harmony, but the magic loop had me at hello.
My brand new size 2 and size 1 with 24 inch cable nickel plated needles.
AND my brand new Jester multi ESSENTIAL (see, I had no choice but to get it, after all it is essential) sock yarn.
AND *insert proud motherly sniff here* my brand new Felici Patina sock yarn.

Let the sock making begin girls!

Texas what?? And other happenings.

I am trying my hand at Texas hold'em on facebook. It would seem that I am not so good. I am glad that I am only losing virtual money... and maybe a bit of virtual self esteem.

My son turned 7 this week. We had a small party at Leo's. The baby woke up with croup so it was a short party, but a long day. A long night. A long weekend. Steroids do not make short people pleasant.

I am down a few computers, hence the lack of updating. My laptop was murdered by above mentioned baby. Child K put him down for his nap. When she came back to check on him genius baby was playing "Fate" on the laptop laying in bed. (Yes, he is of my loins) So child K took the laptop and set it on the floor next to the bed, then tucked the baby back in. You see where this is going? When the baby woke up he drop kicked the laptop.. kung fu baby. Or maybe he just jumped off of the bed onto it.. either way, it is dead.

And my desktop is on its way out. It only runs when you ask really nice, and tell it you owe it chocolate. However, it does not respond well to threats.... or water. Nooo, not water.
