sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

Ouch!

1) DD#4 ate Cascade last night. Vomiting ensued. And do you know how fast that stuff gets to the *other* end? Less than 5 minutes! She’s fine today. And before you ask why she wasn’t being supervised, she did it with her 3 oldest sibs in the kitchen. Can you say “speed of light”? Toddlers are justthatquick.

2)My hands hurt. I think it must be from the sock knitting. I have noticed that I really fight the socks on bamboo dpns as opposed to the pair I have on my metal Inox circ. Does that mean I need to buy more of those? :P I haven’t had this problem before, so I may just need to switch off with some larger gauge projects. But man, I love to knit some socks. Yummm, socks!

3)My boys need new shoes. I know the ones they have are too small. I had been holding off getting them, hoping we could get to Myrtle Beach, where we can pick up Vans for less than 20 bucks. Well, with all that’s going on, I have no idea when that will be, so Mama is looking at Kmart today.

4)My budget is non-existent. Lord, your children need stuff. Please send clothes, shoes and bras. If you prefer to send time and money, I’ll be happy to handle the shopping for you. Amen.

That was partly tongue-in-cheek, but also absolutely true. I rarely, very rarely run into a situation where everybody needs stuff at the same time. But DD#4 had to have new shoes a couple weeks ago, DD#2 had to have new shoes this week, and now the 3 boys. As for the bras, those are for DD#1, and must come from Myrtle Beach. They don’t sell her size here.

The children are out hiding and hunting eggs in the yard. I was not planning to take a break from school, but I may give them the day off and catch up on some stuff here. I took a couple days off myself, and of course that always means playing catch-up.
