Hmmm what to do what to do....

I am sitting around in my PJ's I got up cleaned some house and since I finished my Bellatrix socks last night I am trying to decide what to do seeing as i really don't want to work on Ben's socks. I am debating on either doing a plain jane ribbing pair of socks which is rare for me, or having a go at pomptimous by cookie a or just a Woodstock dish rag for my sister?? I am undecided. I really think I will wind up doing a pair of socks and the dishrag but what ever. I suppose since i have soo much to keep in mind from training I should go for the mindless ribbing.

I am awaiting the open sign up for the harry potter sock swap I signed up for. I am very excited for that. I have never done one and can't wait. I spent yesterday at mys sisters. She recently returned from Kosovo and it is soo great to spend time with her. She is great. I missed her. I spent last weekend cleaning her house with her because her husband had a insane mess in it. Well I need to go cook lunch with the hubby and get out of here so he can put down the fire monster (boo boo is up north with her "dad" I am sure to much relief of the cat) anyway I will post pics of the Bellatrix next time.

one week down the rest of my life to go...

Well today wasn't that bad. I got up was able to find my clothes and get out the door on time and even made it to work a few minutes early. I am really liking it even though it is super over whelming. I love the girls who sit by me in training and am seriously sad that we are going to be assigned new spots over the weekend. and yes there of coarse is one person I can't stand in class (because as my husband says I hate everyone. ) We will call her "the question asker" she is the one who asks questions that do not pertain to anything that have already been asked or that are totally obvious. She holds everyone back makes out day drag endlessly and says it all in a condescending tone like she is asking it for all of us idiots who must not know because we are obviously stupid. I have begged my friends to shut me up if I ever do that. She walked in at 8 this morning and right away started in..."before we get started I was thinking last night and..." do not think of more questions over night please like we don't hear enough during the day!

anyway I passed my first eval and I am going to knit as much as I can in a joyous celebration because monkey butt is visiting her "dad" and I got the fire monster to bed wooo hoo. Go me!

Better day..

Well I am less of a jerk today. (even though boo boo is throwing a huge fit because she wants to go out and play with her friends but is not aloud because 1 she is in trouble 2 she obviously is exhausted or will be by the time she is done crying so she may as well get in pjs now). I miss my knitting I have only really got to do it on the car ride to work and home I have not got anywhere. I am going to try to make so progress tonight since the way we are looking it is going to be early bedtime for the girl.

Work is great. I get overwhelmed by all we have to learn but I am just trying the best I can. I am getting a pretty good creak in the neck from looking at the instructor over my shoulder from my computer. I am rented a couple movies and am going to knit and enjoy bens evening off before since I lay in bed watching TV yesterday waiting for migraine meds to kick in. I really am excited for my new job and even more excited knowing between me and the hubby we will get 5 paychecks and renters credit check. So for any of you numerous people/business's we owe money we will see you soon lol. I am going to watch TV and ignore the screaming kid who is in way over her head for being mean to the cat and throwing him. I don't know why we are keeping her in really it is quiet the punishment on all of us. (and the cat wasn't' he punished enough already lol)

I am super doooper cranky. My husband is at it again. He locked the keys in our garage so that I couldn't get to our car to drive to work. So then he had to drive me in as boo boo calls it "the crappy car" He almost made me late for work on my second day I made it by two minutes if that. I then he was supposed to pick me up with the girls so we could grab some lunch spent half of my lunch break looking for him because he had no cell phone and he wasn't answering the home phone turns out he left before I came out for lunch. He wasted my time I got all wet by a sprinkler so my hair is nasty then I had to have my id pic taken for my badge.

So I was cranky had a crappy vending machine lunch and was distracted and out of it and failed half my tests and kept getting kicked out of training mode and getting behind. I was soo frustrated and up set I cried half the way home. I have lived here 4 years and never locked the keys in the garage he has done it three times in two years!!!! I am soooo cranky. To make matters worse the way he deals with mistakes is getting indignant and taking it out on others and I was not about to let that happen today. I was way way way tooo mad to deal with crankiness for something that is in no way my fault.

So yeah bad day.... oh then i get in the car at the end of the day and find out that his crazy alcoholic circus freak mom moved her new boyfriend (who she doesn't like and told it is just for fun) into the house when she old boyfriend (who my kids referred to as grandpa) out less then a month ago!!! and since when is something that is just for fun mean moving in together with her 13 year old daughter???? AAAAAAAAAAAAAHhhh. that is it everyone is moving out except me and my yarn. I might let the kids and cat come visit though.''

See how I get when I don't get a good dose of my knit ladies I am intolerable

One door opens...

Well I started the new job today. I do like it although all we did today was sit around and hear what not to do. There are about twenty people training along with me and they seem nice for the most part. Knowing me there will be someone in the group who is determined to make me hate them but isn't that always the case. I was up way too late last night and need to go to bed. but I am going to sit up watch some harry potter and knit for a bit. I forgot my knitting today so I need to get at least a bit in.

I didn't get to see my great husband at all today. He cleaned the house somewhat and got all the girls schedule done picked up a smidgen of groceries and had dinner cooked when I got home. then he ran straight to work. I will see him tomorrow though it is his day off. Woo hoo. I missed him. Well off to bed with me. I have to convince boo boo who slept alllll afternoon to stay in bed and watch a movie so I can go to bed. the fire monster is already out. :)

Ps if any of my knit group happens to read this i realy missed all of you today. :(

I know I know...

It has been forever I understand this. I am lazy and tired and have been busy actually. This weekend my sister finally arrived back from Kosovo and I spent most of the weekend with her. I am now home and preparing myself for the start of my new job tomorrow. I am working for a cell phone company. I wasn't looking for a job and I guess you could say it was meant to be because it fell into my lap and it all worked out perfectly so far. We will see how much I like it it is the sorta thing I think I will like to do once I get the hours under control.

I bought some flat feet and am working on some bellatrix socks. It is going good. I have got a little big further to get to the toe. here would be what the flat feet looks like for those who are unfamiliar it is machine knit then died and you unravel it as you knit it.
have finished my socks for sherry (the monkeys I made her didn't fit so she gets the francies I made out of alpaca. Which might I say are the coziest socks ever love the yarn hate the pattern.
I have not even finished bens one sock because I dread knitting that pattern. I am further on my bellatrix i started just days ago then his sock I started like a month ago. My sister got my Seattle socks. (these girls are lucky I love them) It seems the older the fire monster gets the less i get to blog funny how that works. I am just busy busy lately. I will close with a cute picture of my fire monster looking not so fire monster.

Tuesday, June 17, 2008

Well.... let me see. I did go to the gym and read on the stationary bike for like 45 minutes and then went to talk to my hubby and saw my Friend lawna and walked on a treadmill by her and talked for like another half hour so unintentionally I got my work out in. I went to the pool and yoga today and dinner at my sisters. I was reminded that we are to house sit for the next ten days at her house. Which is much larger then our apartment and has a huge fenced in back yard for my little ones. Woo hoo but I hate packing up everyone to stay there that is the sucky part. I got a few rows knit today but mostly family crap. I am hanging out drinking a beer reading my favorite blogs checking email blah blah blah.

My fire monster has her 7 month appointment tomorrow morning. I can't for the life of me remember the time so we are going to have to call and get the time right. I don't really have much exciting going on. I guess what I lack in substance I will make up for in cute pics.
here is monkey butt and fire monster in the tub playing around.

And here is bens wood grain sock coming along. I haven't got far but what the heck I am in no hurry.
Well off drink my beer and watch a movie with my hubby then down some water the pool will take it out of ya.

Monday, June 16, 2008

Maybe... maybe not.

Sooo... I haven't been here in a while. I have been very busy. Last week I went to a friends cabin to knit with the girls for the weekend, then I came home went to the pool 3 times attended 3 yoga classes, sit for my sister, went to the zoo 3 times. and finally started cleaning my house the past two days after all the running around. I am tired and sorta in domestic mode. I have been way busy. I am opting to skip my knit group today because I would rather sit home and knit I am just not in a social mood. I didn't even attend wwkip I had seriously considered but decided to go sit at the pool with my sister in law then come home and do the cleaning instead.

I finished my first francie sock, am still slowly making progress on my second hedera ( I should have known if the first sock goes that fast something is bound to go wrong) and I started bens socks. (yes he tried on my francie and loved it so now he would finally like a pair of socks) I also knit his hat for fathers day and he has it. Today is our Friday thank god. I can't wait to be done. I am sooo excited for this week to be over. I don't know why. I spent most of last week covered literally from head to toe in some sort of bites or rash I got from the weekend but didn't show up til Sunday night and continued to spread for days. Now it is just down to some scabs left all over which let me tell you was very attractive all the times I was in my swim suit last week. We never did figure out quiet what it was and we were worried it was chicken pox at first seeing as they showed up suddenly and i had 50 on my legs alone when all was said and done. (and by the way the we i mean is me and my husband not the voices in my head I am not that crazy).

I am tired and just feel like staying home maybe to be a bit domestic maybe to sit around and knit. I am not sure. I guess that is mostly it for me I am going to go help fold the 4 loads of laundry that are in the living room and make my hubby help me change sheets before he heads to work out. Maybe I will got to the gym. I don't know maybe not. I am just indecisive in general. I think all the itching from the mystery bumps may have zapped my brain power. well here is pics from the many trips to the zoo to see the great new Russian coast exhibit.

Thursday, May 29, 2008

Yeah Yeah Yeah...

I know I get slower all the time people. But in my defense I had a very productive week. I polished off allot of projects despite the fact that my little fire monster will probably be walking around things with in the next two weeks!!!! (hey that is quiet the feat seeing as she just turned 6 and a half months) I am constantly chasing her out of things. Her new favorite today was pulling her self up to dig in the garbage can in the living room. She also has a special fondness for crawling up and cramming her self in her little jumpy stand toy thing.

But back to the knitting. Let me see first I finished ...the god forsaken baby surprise for my husbands friends. It was cute but I am glade to be done with it. I am still debating wither or not to do a little debbie bliss hat to go with it. I made it out of baby cashmerino. Cute little teddy bear buttons.

Then for a nice break I decided to knit my other koolhaas hat for the fun of it. It is made from rowan kid classic and is going to go with one of my favorite scarfs beautifully.

Then I buckled down and finished the other monkey sock for my lovely sherry. I will have them in the mail eventually.

Now I am working on what is my new love. I am in love with these socks. I am making cookie a.s hedera socks. I am making them with knit picks risata (grass) and I am just in love with them. Very simple pattern but comes out just beautiful. They go super fast. I am sooo loving these.

You can't really see the yarn overs when I have the pic like that but I will take better pics when they are done.

Soo see I didn't abandon you I was just knittin' my ass off people. I got allot done. So I am going to curl up in bed next to my baby girl (yes I gave in she is asleep in my bed) and work on my new love but I leave you with this people..

what the heck is wrong here people????
PS I apologize if things are all funky the way they line up I tried what can you do.

The begining of the end...

So I was sitting at the computer yesterday and we moved furniture so the fire monsters bed is right by it. She was in there supposed to be going to sleep for her afternoon nap when she sat straight up grabbed the edge and stood herself up!!! This is insane to me because she just turned 6 months a week ago. She is crawling around my house getting into all kinds of trouble and now pulling her self up to stand by things and she has only just turned 6 months!!! What am I going to do with this girl there is no holding her back and enjoying the baby stage she just keeps moving forward and not looking back. She is trouble wayyyy tooo determined.

Anyway this is me and my hubby's weekend. Today would be our Sunday. Boo boo has her last day of school :( and Ben took her and went to the gym while she was there. I enjoyed sleeping in a bit longer with the baby but yet I wish I would have went now to see the last day. I think maybe we will take her out for ice cream after to celebrate. She is just only the most beautiful smart girl i know. (which is great because the other one looks just like her lol)

I have been trudging along very boringly on my baby surprise sweater for my hubby's friend. and I am soo sick of it I think I may have to start something else just so I do not die of boredom but yet my whole reason for not starting something else is so I won't get side tracked and just get it done but Yeah we will see how that goes. Well fire monster is up and I am still in PJ's think I will get dressed and tidy up so we can do something special with the boo boo when she gets off I am thinking a bike ride /Rollerblade. :)

and we will end with this the cat torture for the day although he realy didn't seem to mind (it takes way too much to ruffle his feathers

rolling down hill...

Well bloggers. The weekend was somewhat of a bust with knitting projects. I did do a few other things crafty like embroidered a pillow case actually two but I am going to add some more to the patterns I did. I didn't use patterns I drew them onto the cases them embroidered it. I decided after finishing they need a little something else so I will add to them. It is something I like to do every now and again it reminds me of my grandma. We have a few pillow cases around that I have done and we all fight over them. My four year old has her very own now though. I also duplicate (or did a lame attempt at) stitched the heels on my embossed leaves. The smooshy dream in color didn't hold up as well as I would have thought it would. Oh well I guess.

We had a long rough weekend. I had my three year old almost four year old (undiagnosed autistic) nephew yesterday. His dad is making a attempt at potty training him before his mom gets home from kosovo but you know I think you need conversation skills and more speech then a vague parroting before you can be potty trained. I think in the end I had as many hits as misses and got to clean poop up off my bathroom floor. I was cranky after that. I love the little guy but I truly think I will not offer to take him again no matter how much my other sis guilt's me. I had the monster puke I would say at least ten times (carrots) and my nephew peed his pants three times and pooped on the bathroom floor once and woke up the baby countless times. He cried all day about everything from he didn't want to eat the mac and cheese (the noodles prolly weren't the same shape as at home) to his unnatural fear of my dust buster. With Ben working weekends I have just decided no more. It is me with no help and having a baby makes it just ten times too hard. My sister has two older kids, a house,and a husband who is home to help on the weekends. I have a two bedroom apartment a four year old and a baby and am on my own. Not to mention the fact that I haven't got so much as a few hours alone with my husband since my sucky couple hour date with my hubby in march. SO I am done.

Also sat. when we had my nephew my husband went to leave for work and the tire fell off the car. We had to have it towed. I had a tow truck come from up the road less then a mile and it towed our car less then 20 yards. 80$ I was not happy. One step forward two steps back. We just swept out the garage and now it has a nice broken car in it. It was a giant mess the car was broken diagonal across the road and our road is a through road so people use it to cheat the stop light and they fly down it and high school had just let out and it wasn't pretty so if we didn't get it towed quick someone was either going to hit it or the cops would tow it first which would cost even more money. SO I guess you could say shit literally rolled down hill this weekend. I am a bit over stressed and cranky. I need to just curl up and knit.

I just checked on my babies and there is something sooo cozy and comforting about my daughter sleeping on a pillow embroidered with a design we made and a quilt made by my sis and my other baby laying there sleeping under the blankly i knit her with the teddy her aunt sent her. and all the things around that were made with time and love that make me feel a bit better. Seeing the love in the mittens drying on the table. the socks drying in the bathroom. the blankets and pillows and all the things that are the tangible representations of love of my family there even after the crappy weekend I ended on a good note. I am going to snuggle in with the pillow my grandma embroidered and knit til I crash.

Ah a victory in cleaning

Well I am starting to take back my house. the stove was taken apart and cleaned me and my Boo boo cleaned the front of fridges dishwasher stoves scoured bathrooms and vacuumed and scrubed all over the place. She sat down in the recliner as i started to cook dinner and just woke up. My little Gizmo ate with me played and crashed about eight like usual but she should be up not too long from now to have a snack with her daddy and play. So the big high for the day was... me and ben have been playing a endless game of what is that smell in our car lately. It has been driving me up the wall. our car was not that dirty but good lord it just did not smell good. I have had weird things happen before like a apple slipped out of my lunch when I was younger and rolled under car seat where it went bad. So we were leaving no leaf unturned we moved the baby everything at the car wash as we vacuumed well we found it and let me tell you our car didn't smell as bad as it should have. There was a bag of cheese in the pocket on the back of the passenger seat!!!!!!!!!! AAAAh I am both delighted to be rid of the smell but mortified that such a thing happened to me.

but It feels soooo good and satisfying to be home and have a clean house clean car and fresh start for the day tomorrow with very little chores ahead of me. Tomorrow is our Saturday around here because ben has Tues and wed off so I think I should technically get to celebrate mothers day these days. I know he is giving me one of his great pedicures. I am looking forward to that. I am trying very hard to ignore the whining from the little girl in the other room who slept through dinner and woke up cranky and is turning her nose up at peanut butter her favorite meal of all time she would typically live off. She apparently wants pancakes the thing she turned her nose up at before falling asleep. Never happy are they.

Well I am going to sit here and drink my cup of tea (grams style with lemon heads) I am going work on my shrug and drink my tea and listen to the endless complaints of a 4 year old and try to remember that she was so great earlier hanging out and cleaning with her mama. I think a fight is going to break out between her and the cat any minute he is irritating her big shock.

rich in the ways it counts.

Okay so today is mothers day... it is also the day my dad passed away two years ago from complications due to lung cancer I guess would be the technical term but he had a blood clot go straight to his heart. I love him and miss him and think of him allot. But I will not dwell on that. Today is also the day I went to Shepard's harvest and it was great great fun. Lots of great fuzzy animals and shops with cool fibers and things. I took a class on lace taught by Annie Modesitt. Which I loved it was great and she does beautiful things and is a great teacher loved her. She made me laugh too which is great on days like today. I left with a new found love for the chart. I look at them in a whole new way I do not read them the same as I did before that is for sure. I can't wait to dive into some of her projects (as soon as I finish the 3 i have going) I am normally such a monogamous knitter I do not know what has gotten into me. Anyway I can't wait to do her sling chair and her beautiful wide brimmed hats which not my usual style but she wore it and it looked cute so if she can pull it off so can I by god.
PS the photo included above is the reading in bed shrug that didn't fit me so my sister in law inherited it. I am working on my new one now.

I have had a few changes I quit my job this last week. I feel like a ton of bricks have been lifted off my shoulders. I am getting my house back in order seeing my family more and cooking more and the things I love (being a housewife) Yeah I know most of you will think I am crazy but there is something satisfying about it. We were just settling down after me quiting when we realised my hubby's change of schedule at work shorted him two days and a few hundred $ so We are definitely tight money wise but hello it is a recession who isn't right. So no $ = no phone. Which if I would have been on bed rest I would have gone crazy but I find it almost soothing in a way. I get allot done with out having that distraction. But yet there are times when I want to call like to tell my sisters and mom and what not happy mothers day and no can do so they will have to settle for email. I am really kind of enjoying being in my little cocoon. I am a home body and I love being at home and watching movies and curling up with my knitting and books and girls and hubby and being here. So ya know we are healthy and although my oldest pushed me to the limit tonight at times I love them all soo much and poor spell or not I wouldn't change it for anything. Money comes and it goes. I just try not to stress we have food and a roof over our head and each other the rest is all just stuff anyway right. (besides if you haven't guessed my stash isn't low yet so I am happy til that happens right lol)

this pic of butt monkey is the aftermath of the days events.

So basically once I am done relaxing with a cup of yummy tea my sis sent me from over seas I am going to do a quick house tidy and sit down and bind off the sample i did in class to get the closer and practice the new method I learned. I hope all you mamas out there had a great day and are as happy and cozy as me right now. Besides I find great comfort in the fact that if worse comes to worse I will shave the cat and have my girlfriend spin the fur for yarn and then eat him. I am just saying it is always a option people lets hope it doesn't get to that lol.

Sunday, April 27, 2008

Things have been slow lately. I have been busy busy but I have broke free from work for 5 straight days. I stayed home yesterday just me and the fire monster and a few rented movies and hung out. I got a bit of knitting done but mostly just snuggles with the fire monster. Ben had four days in a row off last week so it was nice to have him around. I am very tired. Boo boo is back from her dads and tired and a bit mouthy (typical behavior for coming home from her dads). I am almost to the heel on my sisters second sock. I can't wait to finish it. I keep debating what to do next. Socks for my fire monster or the hat for her made out of the hand spun beautiful alpaca my girlfriend spun for me. I have such a hard time making it for something that she won't fit next year it is sooo pretty.

Speaking of fire monster she is behind me in her bassinet growling her self to sleep she is such a monster lol. Boo boo is watching James and the giant peach in the living room. Okay I do not have much to say lately. I was pretty sure by mid week this week that my boss who I love but he has the mood swings of a women was trying to crush my soul. I am pooped and have plenty of chores to keep me busy and a whole ton of things I should be doing. Why does everything take so much time. Fire monster is asleep with the cat keeping a close and watchful eye as he naps near by I am off to get to that heel wish me luck. :)

Okay guys I am adding to this because i picked my next project the reading in bed shrug and I am doing it in worsted alpaca. I can't wait I am busting my hump on my sis's sock tonight so I can start it asap. I am 12 rows past the heel and going Strong the boo boo is in bed with a movie. and fire monster is asleep in her bed. I am excited. I am going to throw on a movie and get to knitting :)

Friday, April 18, 2008


Well bloggers, I know it has been a while. I have been working lots lately give me a break. I also have developed a stye the size of a fairly sizable mountain. I can't think of one to name at this point but it doesn't matter really does it? It is big and gross and we will leave it at that. I am waiting for Ben get the fire monster who I am seriously thinking needs to be renamed gizmo because she sounds soo much like him when she talks and at a mere 5 months does a army crawl and she can roll basically anywhere she wants she is making us crazy and very nervous since she is sooo young to be achieving such mischief. Booo boo the butt monkey is at her dads for a few days and I am sorta relieved to have a bit of a break she has drug me to the pool swimming 4 times this week. I can only do so much people!!!

I finished the lava socks they are beautiful and great and I got two great new sock yarns and i have pics from me and my girlfriends trip to see the yarn harlot but I have been in no mood to get things together (see before mentioned stye and mention of work) Well I have the earth mother comment for the day. I was showing off my socks very proudly and mentioned that I have enough sock yarn left for another sock as determined by weighing my sock i used less then half the skein (by the way I have 2.26 oz left of a 4 oz skein of schaefer ann by the way) and she said we really need to teach you yardage!! hello half my skein of sock yarn is gone what easy method do I have that is easier then putting it on my digital scale i use for hair color??? But what ever she can say to belittle you in front of customers and try to make her self feel better right. Oh well we can't all be nice knitters right. Well I am off to snuggle my hubby and climb into bed.

If I go die of gangrene from using year old antibiotic eye drops in my eye because I am too lazy to go in to the Dr's I leave everything to the cat. lol (not really he only gets half)

Well people I have done it I have achieved success, I have knit my self my first real garment. I have 8000 socks scarfs hats mittens rugs baby and child things but nothing large for my self til now. I finished my shrug and it is blocking on my table and I smell like a dirty wet alpaca. I have been in quiet the snit all week. I feel like I am coming around though. Although I have been just in love with my projects and making fairly good time. I mean I made shelbys rainbow socks I finished my shrug and I have started what have been names the lava socks that I am in love with (thank you lynn) I have been short fussed, cranky and my moods can take a turn for the worse on a dime.

Case in point this morning my husband drug me out of bed telling me we had to get buttmonkey to school well I woke up to find every single favorite thing I owned was in the drier still wet because it seems that what I can only assume is a diaper had been washed with them. (which ben has also washed a entire roll of toilet paper with our laundry before he is not very observant but that is a story for another day) so back to the point I had to wear things I hated and rush around and then Ben started to get upset and said something that threw me into what can only be explained as a mutant rage much like the hulk. I came at ben nostrils flaired, fire in my eyes and in fear of his life he threw a dishrag at me and I punched him in the arm screamed and then went in the room and slammed the door with such a force a part of the door jam fell down and the door pushed forward and in what can only be explained as a act of god to save my husbands life the little nails that held the door jam up were bent in such a way the door was locked shut and I had to find scissors and bend them one by one to make pry the door open by then I had thrown my ipod on and was listening to the yarn harlot in a daze trying to get myself out to the car. with the 20 minute ride listening to the yarn harlot and a bit of my Lacie lava sock behind me I had come down but I told my husband next time that happens have the good sense to keep your mouth shut and make no sudden movements til I am fully dressed.

I had a close call this after noon though when i realised in with the load in the drier he had thrown my favorite pair of hand knit socks my lace embossed leaves socks!!! I just thank god that tomorrow I work then I am off to watch the yarn harlot speak. I can't wait to get out get a break and shirk my responsibilities. I should prolly go people I should coax the cat out of hiding I am sure he is shaking in a corner somehow waiting for the beast to arise in me once again lol.

Socks socks and more socks

I know it has been a few days and no I didnn't pass away and get devoured by my cat. I finished one of the springy socks and realised I hated the yarn allot. I wanted to love it because of the color but I didn't so I took the second ball of yarn which was untouched and was going to pay the difference to get a brand tried and true and I left the sock as a demo for my boss and the other yarn returned and he called it good and now I have a new sock yarn to knit up

A pretty soft and bright schaefer ann sock yarn. I love you Lynn it was me not you I chose bad yarn for myself the aloe made my hands dry as a well... dry stuff and the yarn split like crazy as i knit with it. It felt like a gunny sack when I got done with the one sock so I decided not to move ahead.
I am now working on a pair of jaywalkers for boo boo out of rainbow regia. I am one down and a tiny bit into the second one. After I finished the first she informed me she needed a second sock!!! I hope all you knitters out there realise that you have to knit two socks!!! All those years down the drain lol. So if anyone is keeping track that means I have a pair of socks to knit for fire monster yet plus a pair for my sis (which I am keeping her schaefer ann and bought trekking pronature as a decoy yarn) , plus two pairs of socks for myself and a hat. Thank god tomorrow is knit night I have got tons to get done. Not to mention that I have got a hat for my bosses charity knitting to do.
I am super excited for knit night by the way I have lots of yummy things to cook and eat. I have a few possible videos. I am super excited. I am not as excited that I have to get up early and do some foils on my hubby's friend's girlfriends. but she is preggo and I understand and I want her to feel better about her self every pregnant women should feel beautiful because I know this last pregnancy I sure as heck did not.
Fire monster got a new toy today. One of those mats that she rolls around on that dangles toys just out of her reach lol. It is cute and she has soo much fun in it. I also got boo boo a movie that she doesn't even know of. She is at her dads already for the weekend. A old Alvin and the chipmunks ones where they fly around in a hot air balloon. She has jumped on the chipmunks band wagon. She will be excited. Other then that life has been boring. I have been working lots and that is about it. I am not very funny more exhausted. At least I am not angry and starving anymore. I had quiet a few days when a was off solids where I was a cranky mad women and poor Ben survived. I am on smooshy stuff now. No chewy things but I did manage a mcds. plain double cheese burger today woooohooo. my unintentional hunger strike is over. well bloggers cat is at my feet trying to force me to feed him so I guess he deserves to eat if I get to eat. take care of your cats bloggers.

That explains things the best I can today. Eeeeh. I spent the morning yesterday at work helping out. Then took advantage of the gift card Ben gave me not for a massage but a very needed pedicure. It is sooo smartly named, Pedi-cure. I think they can cure almost anything. If you are feeling bad and need a pick me up a pedi- cure can do the trick. I am a firm believer in them. It was not the best I had ever had. I think the person you get can make a huge difference. I like someone who is going to talk to me and not make me sit there awkward. I wonder if it is rude to start requesting a certain type of personality for a pedicurist??? what do you think? I do not think so not at all. I want someone who will put me at ease. That is what it is all about after all right. but back to the point after that i went back to work did some more work then I was invited to hang out with my girlfriend Angela and her family but I decided the way my head was feeling it was best if I just go home and crash. So I went home finished my toe on my sock and did just that.

So yes you heard me right I finished my socks. The lagoon smooshy sockyarn embossed leaves socks spent the night in a vinegar bath and were still a little bleedy so I went out bought more vinegar nooked them and then washed them again towel wrung and a bit in spin cycle and are hanging to dry in boo boos bathroom waiting for tomorrow as we speak!!! I am very excited but even more exciting is that I have started my on your toes spring Jaywalker socks. I am liking the yarn okay so far. Pattern is cute but the yarn does split quiet a bit so I need to be careful esp. with my little sharper knit picks needles which I love by the way big thumbs up there. I truly do not have much to rant or rave about today. My head is still excruciating and other then that I have not got much else going on. I am knitting and not touching the twenty billion loads of laundry that are laying around my house. I will just pretend they aren't there.

Boo boo the butt monkey just returned from a visit at her dads and is hanging out having down time in her room and fire monster is asleep.... oooh here is the first chance for our game...wheres ev...is she asleep in the car....wheres ev.....is she asleep on the bar.....where ev....???? who is going to win the were is ev sleeping today game?? Prize will be given to first correct guesser tomorrow at knit group (if it is someone in my knit group i guess i assume no one else reads this lol) Well people I am going to go relax and knit I have what has the potential to be a good week coming up ...payday, knit group, and I have knit night also coming up. So even though i work my 3 day week this week I will have a extra dose of love from my knit ladies to get me through. :) well off to work on my jaywalkers. and leave my blinders on

ps I am a horrible cat owner naughty spent all day locked in a closet yesterday and was released only to find we had forgot to buy him more food! we did rush out and get the poor guy food and give him a extra helping. he also tried to climb in fire monsters bed last night and sleep at her feet. ever since she was scratching him by the ear one day last week he has really taken shine to her. Here is a picture of the bed bug himself sleeping inside my bed spread

Good lord people I should have known...

Well You know how yesterday I was like oh things are great why do I ever freak out nothing has happened in for ever life is under control...well my jaw popped out of the socket yesterday!!! I was on the phone with my aunt and pop my jaw was out of the socket and I couldn't get it back in. I had to call the nurse hot line they told me to call my husband get him home and get some one to watch my girls. Well I did what I always do when I am hurt and need to call for help freak out and cry for like 30 seconds then called ben he set stuff up to come home then I called my sweet sweet guardian angel Valarie who drove a half hour at 9 at night with no notice to watch my monsters.

So I went in and brought my knitting of coarse thinking urgent care this could be days should I bring another pair of socks to start. Well that was the shortest trip to the er ever!!! I was half way through a short row heel and I didn't even get it done! Kudos to apple valley m. c. by the way. A Dr saw me pretty much right away. Felt in my jaw apparently it had pop ed back in and My t.m.j. is going to be sore for a few weeks. (and sore it is that is for dang sure). I got some pain meds Rx and I came home popped them had a great dinner of malt o meal and went to bed.

I did work today and attempted some soft solid foods but my jaw has popped out of joint a few times again tonight. Maybe this liquid diet thing is just someones way of telling me to quit eating so damn much all the time. That it is time to shed those post baby pounds. I am going to pop my night guard in take a bunch of Advil and go to sleep. I had the harsh realization of how old I am getting slap me up side the head today that is for sure. I have to have subtitles on to watch movies or I can't hear what the people on movies are saying for the life of me, can't drive for squat at night, not to mention a half hour road trip and my narcolepsy kicks in, I have to take Metamucil ( i refuse to do my grandmas kind I do capsules) and now...my jaw falls off. what the heck people. What is next cataracts? hip replacement? I am tired and need to get some sleep so I can function tomorrow. I have got to go put in my mouth guard and put my hair up in rollers and check on the cat. I spilt the poor cats food and decided to just leave it there instead of measuring his food like I always do. Lets hope he made out well on the deal and got more then the recommended half a cup.

Well thank you again Valarie You had me at hello, you are the wind beneath my wings, you complete me, here's looking at you kid. If I could give you a boquet it would look like this.

the moment you have been waiting for

hurry fire monster is down for a nap...

Okay So I am sneaking in my blog today while the little fire monster is down for a nap and you would all be so proud of me. We should play a game sorta like the wiggles. Wheres Jeff song. lol where is fire monster sleeping today... That is a thought and I could give a prize for the winner lol. But we won't start that today because no one would ever guess. she is in her....bed who would have thunk it huh. I am entertaining the idea that she might be teething. She has been a bear at night. I am hoping she is down for a good long nap because she just ate like a pig two tiny helpings of cereal with bananas and a four ounce bottle!!!
Anyway the ugly kosovo army socks are done and so is community service for the month wooo hoo. Now I have been ordered to finish my embossed leaves before I can move on to my yummy spring Jaywalkers by boo boo the butt monkey. I am going to put a slide show of her on too but I am making you guys wait for her. One a day.
I put together a picture of what my Easter basket should look like...you know in case my hubby should happen upon this page and then he will know what I really want. Not expensive jewlery/pinapples that resembles a pineapple slightly (my knit ladies know what I mean) and not a set of kitchen knifes. I am sure some one at a yarn shop some where can point him to the sock yarn you can't go wrong for me lol. I have a sink of dish's waiting on me, god knows how many baskets of laundry to put away and according to my chore chart it is vacuum day but do any of you ladies think I am actually going to do any of that during nap time??? No not a chance I am going to hide and knit feverishly on my embossed leaves so I can work on my new yummy yarn. I figure I unloaded the dish washer, made the bed, grocery shopped, cooked lunch and got the fire monster down for a nap hmmmm.... sounds like break time to me.
I better get to it besides I just remembered the cat has been shut in the bathroom for a few hours since my husband did it to carry in groceries. oooopppps. Good thing he is a good sport.

Well guys here is one project in the works and here is the newest additions to the stash not the stash but the newest favorite additions. I am very excited to get my sisters boring army socks done and bust into that yummy spring yarn. I could use some cheery springy feet couldn't we all. well I have about 30 rows of knit left til the toe I am on the home stretch. Shelby and Evea are playing together on the bed and Ben is rushing around like a chicken with his head cut off getting ready for work.

We had the best lunch ever and it was super simple. yum yum yum. I picked a night for knit night and just need to reserve the room. I am sooo excited. I can't wait. I think while Ben is at work today I am going to clean and put away some knick knacks and display some yarn around the house instead. We will see. Anyway. I must need to go back to work I just don't have much cranky sauciness in me. I need something to get me worked up lol. I have been too tired and sick tooo long I am not as evil as usual. I hope you guys enjoy the pics of progress. Thanks to the lovely ladies who helps enhance my stash :)

Not bad for a monday

Well bloggers, I had a pretty nice little Monday. My sister took me to lunch for my birthday. Then I went to knit group which is always lovely. I gave a present and got a couple presents and some lovely cards. Some great cheese cake and the added bonus that today we traded where our group meets to a way better location was great. I got a great fix of my lovely ladies and I have some new spring sock yarn calling my name. I also got some new yoga pants that fit wonderful. You know it is a good day when you find pants that you love the way they fit.

My husband took the kids so me and my girlfriend could enjoy knit group and he also gave me a great card apologising for being such a dope about my birthday. He gave me chocolate and a gift card for a hour massage!!! He knows the way to my heart. I am very very excited. My ear is still killing esp after putting the fire monster to bed. She screams right in it and I swear it is just going to start bleeding. My girlfriends boys are sleeping over and they are awake but both mine are down for the count but they are the trouble so that is okay. Yeah a pretty nice little Monday indeed.

We are going to start the knit night thing it should be great. Other then that not much going on. I am just past the heal on my sisters boring army sock and almost have it out the door so I can start on my fun springy socks. :) Well great people I am going to go eat a nice piece of cheese cake complements of the lovely Lynn. Go work on knitting your cat sweaters I will see you here tomorrow.

Happy eatser and ding dong my munchkins are free again

The circus tent is down and the elephant poo is cleaned up

Well People it was a long weekend. I am exhausted. I didn't have a whole lot of funny left in me at the end of the day. Those people can suck it out of me like a ardvark in a anthole. Speaking of which they have become aggressive... they have started to bite(the ants not the in laws). I have had three bites in the last week and I have seen one of the little buggers in my bed. I am under attack. I don't know what to do. I am exhausted. My mother in law took off the first day she was here for the entire evening. She invited a drug buddy over (with out asking to invite someone to my home) then when he got here told my daughter she was going to smoke a cigarette and took off in the car with this guy we realised a hour and a half later when my sister inlaw went home and she still wasent back. Then a hour and a half after that once i got the girls to sleep and cried to a friend I decided I would lock the door pull on pjs and knit it out. she has the keys to her guest sweet room on 3rd floor and to get into the building she is a big girl.

Then she called my husband on his way home and told him she was gone one hour and I locked the doors!!! I was angry. but in the morning (my birthday) I got up showered and told my husband me and the girls were leaving to do something fun for my birthday he could come or wait for his mom to arouse from her druggie drunken haze and he went but then we had to bring him back he told my sister in law and me he would talk to his mom and surprise surprise he did not the entire weekend. The little time me and my husband did leave the house for we mainly drove with him repeating over and over what should we do and he wouldn't even let me knit in the car. It was lame yet again this year. The same husband I loved and adored and gushed about the other day I am sorely disappointed in today yet another birthday with out so much as a card much a less a plan of action such as a restaurant chose or anything. i am low maintenance but come on.

I am tired cranky and still trying to knit the bitterness out myself. I am going to either have to wait til late tonight or get up early in the morning to go clean the stinky old smoky haggardness out of the guest sweet up stairs. My husband owes me huge so he is going to take boo boo the butt monkey and my girlfriends two boys swimming while we knit at knit group tomorrow. I am going to also suggest a knit night once a month to my ladies where I rent the room upstairs for the evening and we can bring snacks and cozy up on the couches and thing in the community room and maybe have and glass of wine and some snack's and get away. who knows. I am soooo tired and have been ranting tooo long. They are gone and my days can only get better. I will get a good dose of real loving grandmas for my girls at knit group tomorrow who actually know my girls and love them unconditionally So I look forward to seeing them and telling them how much I love and appreciate them. :) Speaking of which a very happy birthday to one of the best val.. we all love you and I hope you got a great well deserved b-day. Well off the knit some of my community service. Let me tell you if things keep up me and the cat are moving out. here is the cheery part of my post to make up for the bitter bitchiness.

Crazy drunkin circus has come to town

Okay people. SO the in laws have landed. I am exhausted It has been quiet the day already. My husband took off right away this morning to plow I have seen him a total of 5 minutes all day. He is at his real job now. I am digging frantically through the cupboards for a toaster. First we drive half hour to bank then we drop my 13 year old sister in law off at a friends for the night. Well we run to one store eat lunch which is when things start to go down hill with boo boo the butt monkey she got a time out. well we make one last stop and it is target for milk and formula and in the check out line butt monkey informs me she would like to separate. .. you know like when a mom and dad don't live together (i now see this is from enchanted) but I said okay just where do you think you will live? With Ben. I informed her that he does live with me so she gets it in her head that she is going to move to my girl Friend Angela's for 6 weeks.

Well she goes home packs numerous target bags and tells Angela she is waiting in the garage even though Angela has told her numerous times she isn't coming to get her. This goes on for a good two hours. I throw her in the tub. My lovely sister in law (Bernie the other one ) shows up and trys to convince Shelby to hang out with her. No dice I will see you another time is all she gets. Well She wonders the house buck naked eating pizza for a long while eating pizza (don't even ask) But when she is done a fight in sues that leaves her angry in her bed still buck naked because I won't pick out clothes. Some how she is unpacked the tantrum is cleaned up all is well again.

I also spent a good portion of my afternoon on a treasure hunt for full length pants because while I was sick Ben was doing laundry. So I can find no full length pants. So I guess I am back to searching for my toasters. Thank god Bernie is the one normal in law I have in a sea of crazy even if she is sorta like a life raft with a hole. Well I am cooking dinner...its the cat.

Wednesday, March 19, 2008


Okay people I am sick. My cold has taken a turn for the worse. I started to get the body aches and a temp overnight and went in first thing this morning. I have a ear infection and sinus infection. I was pretty sure in the middle of the night when I woke up from dreams of being in horrible painful car accidents that I hurt every where that I was turning into a zombie. It got me thinking allot about zombies. I was wondering was I bitten and didn't know it or was it from a medical perspective (via I am legend) or did some one cough a single fleck of blood in my eye (28 days later) and was I dead or dying then would come back as a zombie or simply my husband and four month old would roll over and I would be a zombie all of a sudden raging and insane after their brains. Anyway I figure if I was misdiagnosed you will be able to tell which zombie is me because a ball of yarn will be trailing behind me and my knitting needles will be dangling from my dead hands.

Well I needless to say not much knitting done today maybe a few rows on my sock but I have spent as much of the day unconscious as possible. I had to run to boo boo the butt monkeys first ever parent teacher conference today and she was a complete scholar (no surprise) I am very proud but by the time I got home my whole body hurt again so drugs and bed. I just re drugged and once they kick in I am crawling back into my bed full of used tissues to sleep more. My sweet hubby I forced to stay home from work to look after the fire monster and boo boo the butt monkey so I can research antidotes for turning into a zombie and sleep all day. I sent him out for bee movie to entertain the butt monkey and I am legend and Dan in real life for me. I am sincerely hoping my body stops hurting long enough for me to bathe.

Sorry to disappoint you bloggers but I am going to crawl back from under the rock that i came and sleep this off. The cat is out of luck lets hope my hubby feeds him so he doesn't eat the children. (speaking of which don't worry house fire was averted he got fast food for dinner)

the ants go marching...

Oh my god people I am not going to mess around today it is straight to business. It is the time of year I hate. The ants have yet again invaded our apartment and are taking over. I am no doubt going to be carried away in my sleep by the little buggers any day now. I am really unhappy about the little things crawling through every room and every crevasse this year because of the four month old rash covered little fire monster in the living room that will be crawling soon and no doubt will be surviving off a regular diet of all the little ants she will shove into her mouth every time I turn my head. I am seriously considering tossing a tent over this joint at night and just bug bombing the crap out of the place and just calling all the circus freaks I call neighbors that will be lost in the ordeal plus in the whole mess. :)

So yeah well at least things are looking up the most exciting thing just happened you guys aren't gonna believe this one. I just ran to target with the girls to buy the machine that is Disney's latest must have and when I checked out i was informed I could win a gift card for 5000 dollars!!!! I could hardly contain myself I am just gonna check the mail every day this week I am sure it is on its way!!!! Speaking of mail my knit picks needles I am trying should be here any day. I am tooo excited and a few random skeins of sock yarn to give the old college try to also.

My poor hubby is out plowing before his realy job for the two thousandth time this season. I will get to enjoy the extra money for my birthday though. I am going to call and shamelessly beg my boss for Friday off for my birthday because as I told the lovely other women who works at the shop I will need to spend the morning hiding the toasters before the inlaws/drunkin circus my husband calls family comes to stay for the weekend so I am not tempted to draw a warm relaxing bath and invited one of the lovely shinny appliances in it with me. It is my belief that the crazy hypochondriac oatmeal knitter (who hear on out will be called the earth mother) he hired who has worked like 3 days in the last month and doesn't do a damn thing but complain when she is there that is when she shows up late if she even bothers to work should have to work. But we will see. (not that i have anything against oatmeal knitters I shop the the co-op tooo people and i think i once owned a pair of Birkenstock) Just this crazy self proclaimed "earth mother" Who shops at walmart and sams club. and I would be shocked if she even has a recycle bin.

I live with the recycling notzie we recycle at least as much as we throw away and have florescent light bulbs (which he is forever behind me turning off ) and as I mentioned we shop at the co-op and use cloth napkins and earth safe cleaning products. My husband is full on hippie. So please just because I do not choose to look like I own no hairbrush and do not smell like b.o. does not mean I am not a earth mother. I have many many lovely women in my knit group who I consider not only earth mothers but angels sent straight from god himself they are loving caring giving Wemon do not feel the need to be condescending and put people down at work all day because they are insecure of their failures.

Okay guys I had to come in and add to todays blog. I had to say how proud I am. My ex (shelbys dad) is having some issues with his parents (theirs not his) and I told him if he really needed it I would pick him up. I called my husband and just asked would he mind if my ex really wound up needing it if he could just crash over with my little girl in her room and he said no he wouldn't mind at all that it is shelbys dad and he is always welcome in our home and that he will do what ever he can to help. I can't even begin to tell you how proud I am of my husband to be that reassured and confident in our marriage and that caring that he would open our home up with out a thought like that. He is such a great guy.

Yes the same man who once stuck a corn dog (well more then once) in our toaster is the most amazing man I have even met and I think I love him more every day. I think I love him more for the fact I can tease him and laugh at him when he does things like cook the pizza on my wooden cutting board thinking it is a pizza stone (by the way it is gross I don't recommend it cutting board anyway pizza stone is good and it broke my cutting board in half lol) I just love him sooo much. I was putting dish's in the dish washer and washing some by hand and thinking you know a few years ago I would have dreamed of this life. A warm cozy place to live with my knitting and a few babies and a husband who takes out the garbage and does his share with out being asked and being loved for the crazy ranting lunatic that I am. I have a good life. I do.

You know when I blog I feel a little bit like a unsexy crazy knitting version of sara jessica parker from sex in the city with no fashion sense and covered in either yarn fiber or cat fur I am not sure which. Well I am off to work on my embossed leaves socks that I am knitting on smooshy sock yarn. I will send a pic of the progress. The fire monster (Evea 4 month old)is asleep in her boppi on the couch (uh huh yeah I know incompetent) and boo boo the butt monkey (shelby 4) is passed out mid playing with littlest pet shop in her bed. so I am going to sneak to my knitting and august rush. I really should work on the shrug I want to wear out for my bday this weekend. I have half a sleeve left to finish and I don't know what I am going to do the gage didn't fit my boobaliciousness. (cute shrug misti alpaca chunky in brown and some pink rowan kidshaze mohair.)

Well I am off people. Go feed your 10 cats I will see you back tomorrow same place same time

bahhhh I have alot to learn about how to link things so for a while it may sorta be a boring page til I learn how to add things and I don't know maybe read my comments and what not and no I am not illeterate just a bit brain fried from life. Speaking of which I am struggling to rub the sleep out of my eyes and get moving and slip into a chia induced state of euphria before I go into work at the yarn shop that I work at. I love my boss but he is a giant whirlwind of drama. He is overwhelming enough to almost leave me speechless. My husband is off to work yet again and my 4 month old is going to start screaming any second. Well here we go I have got 6 hours to go of insain rushing and crying and drama out the ying yang until the big pay off.... my knit group. ahhh sweet gloris haven of loving ladies. see ya bloggers

Sunday, March 16, 2008


So yeah I am pretty sure no one is even going to read this because I don't really have much to say but I lets just say it is a court ordered anger management courses suggestion for venting. Just kidding no court :) anyway. I am a busy mother of two monsters 4 years and 4 months. I got married over a year ago to my husband/best friends brother who I always thought was a hottie. is great, great husband great dad, great friend, bad rememberer. He isn't actually my four year olds birth father but you would never ever guess it. He is the best guy ever. Although I have threatened to kill him in horrible ways if he ever spills a full coffee cup on my light blue angora hat i had just blocked ever again.

I am surprised i have had this long to blog. by naught little 4 month old is asleep on the kitchen table in her car seat. Yeah yeah yeah i know I am a totally irresponsible neglectful horrible mother who should have her children snatched away immediately but hey I can see her from here and I got to shower and shave my legs for the first time since god knows when so I guess I just don't care if that is where she will sleep I will take it. My husband will be ex static to be able to see the skin of my legs again. I was just teasing one of my girlfriends that I should have saved the fleece i just shaved. I could have gave it to this mean catty oatmeal knitter that we know and she could make something out of it. :) just joking lol. She is mean and way crazy in a way only people who have been in a mental ward would understand. (I just visited a friend I swear).

So yeah I have never done this before but hey lets give it a whirl. If you hate me oh well I guess I will try to win you over with my catty witty banter but I make no promises. By the way I told my husband I started a knitting blog and he told me he wants a divorce lol I am just too big of a geek to stay married to. (he was kidding of coarse). This from a man who forgot a full load of groceries in the cart at target. (yes literally the whole load). Anyway I am going to watch scrubs and wait for the hate mail to start flowing in i guess. good night all my crazy knitters and for the love of god get a life (not 10th cat not a book about knitting for your cat a life lol)
