Warning - this is a venting post. Also a VERY biased view. MY view. Please just bare with me.

There has been a lot of family stuff going on around this house. Stuff I am not really happy about. R left yesterday to move OUT OF STATE to take care of his mom. I know, it sounds all great humanitarian and all, but it's not. The woman needs a husband, not a son trying to take care of her like a husband does (not in that way though, get your head out of the gutter!) You know, honey do stuff.

Granted, we were going to move up to that area (two hours away) after I pass the Nursing Boards. We were going to move TOGETHER at ONE time, not separate and twice.

So, R is on his way up there yesterday and today. A thousand miles away. I am so sad.

Summer of Yarn

I got a box! Well, I got it about a week ago, but between dead camera batteries and family stuff going on, I am just now telling the world what a wonderful spoiler I have.

Camera batteries still dead, will get some tomorrow.

The box is from my Summer of Yarn Spoiler. She (?) sent me a PURPLE (!) themed box. I love purple!!!! I recieved 4 skeins of Rowan all seasons cotton in Pansy. A chocolate bar that I have never tried before, it was very good. I also recievd some chocolate covered candy sticks from Purdy's called Mystics. Very good. And a really cute card.

I will get pictures this weekend. This weekend. I have the whole weekend off. SWEET!

SP12 Question week #5

Ok, I think I am caught up now with the weekly questions.

1) Where is your favorite place to go for vacation/holiday?
Any place where the average daily temp in the summer is less than 90 degrees!

2) Where is one place you’d like to go?
I would like to see Ireland someday.

SP12 Question #4

Iam really, really, late.

1) What yarn (that you don’t have/haven’t used) would make your stash “complete”?
I really like lace weight and sock weight yarns. So, my stash is mainly those weights. I would like to expand the other weights.

2) What yarn do you never want to be without?
Sock yarn!
