Hey, everybody! I’m sure you guys are like where the hell did she run off to now?? Or not. Maybe. HEHE!
As it turns out I was feeling crappy for like an entire week. Sick sick sick. Coughing, couldn’t speak, throat sore clogged you name it. All kinds of crappy. Pills, antibiotics, HALLS LIKE A MOFO, nothing. Made my asthma come up and at me and it’s STILL with me. Ugh. Bastard cold! I was so sick I didn’t knit for like 5 days!! Seriously, that’s when you KNOW I’m sick. And I’m a whiny ass baby when I’m sick too. Love my hubby lots for putting up w/my bullcrap.
After that, as I try to jump back into things, I have been a knitting maniac. I finished my Yarn Diet Round 3. YAY ME!! (Pictures of FOs at a later date.) Just wait until I receive and take pix of the stash enhancement coming my way as my prize for my latest round of projects. I ordered from Little Knits and Loopy Ewe (altho the latter is sock yarn and doesn’t really count as prize stuff cuz it’s in the rules as to not counting towards KFYS07), and the last thing but definitely not least, I can either order from WEBS or pick it up tomorrow from Brooklyn General – I’m still pondering that one as it’s SOOO DAMN CRAPPY OUT HERE! UGH! 70 degrees two days ago, snow today. It’s no wonder I’m sick!
Now for some EXCELLENT EXCELLENT NEWS!! My son, Alex, age 12, is going…
TO THE CHESS NATIONALS IN SACRAMENTO, CA IN A FULLY EXPENSE PAID TRIP WITH HIS CHESS CLUB AT SCHOOL!!!
I am sooo freakin proud of this kid! You guys have NO idea how I’ve been bouncing in my chair for the past few days!
I signed the form right away…but yet, afterwards, I freaked out and kept thinking shit this is his first time on a plane and his first time away from us for so long. It’s 5 days!!! I cannot let my parental fears get in the way because this is one major opportunity that we cannot possibly miss!! He deserves this in a major way. So off he will go on March 28th. He’s very excited too. Although he’s such a low-key kid that if you were to SEE this excitement in person, you would SWEAR he doesn’t want to go. But I know my kid. He’s excited. LOL
I haven’t taken any good prOn worthy pix lately so I’ll have to leave you with an oldie but goodie, Schaeffer Anne.
PS: There are a couple of contests going on that you guys should all join in on! Alyson has one going on that ends this weekend, Bezzie has one for a GREAT cause, Heather (she of All Things Heather) has ANOTHER one for a GREAT cause and Vicki has one more for ya. Lots of yarny-love going around folks! Join in the fun!
PPS: Don’t forget that I also have two contests going – the Fuego Socks contest and the Anti-Spam word contest – this one is that if you happen to post a comment to my blog and your anti-spam word is YOU, then you should email me and let me know to win some jarn-y love. But there’s a catch, no one’s name is spelled the way it’s supposed to be. There may be letters missing – so when you email me to let me know you saw your name or blog name as the anti-spam word, make sure you include the spelling! 😀 )
