weird child

I have a strange kid. A kid that thinks you need to be leaving the house to wear pants. A kid that loves to play with anything resembling a vehicle. A kid that informed me the other day that when he gets big he wants to wear a dress. A kid that sings the alphabet while sitting on the toilet. A kid that will do almost anything for french toast or pancakes. A kid that asked me just a few minutes ago what held up our stairs. I have no idea where he comes up with these things. He's a nut. But he's a stinking cute nut.

I must be crazy

Really I must be. I have a gagillion projects and hobbies and then I go and decide I need another one. I've seen a ton of really cute really comfy looking knitted socks. I've decided I need some. Could I buy them? Probably. But I want to be able to say "I made these!" Yeah, I'm insane. So I got a teach yourself knitting book at jo-anns that also has a couple sizes of needles and other bits and some patterns. No sock patterns but some others that I may try. I have tried knitting in the past but haven't gotten along with it because I was doing something weird in how I purled so when I went to knit the purles no matter how loosely I did them they were horribly tight and almost impossible to get the needle in. In the past few days of practicing I figured out what I was doing wrong! I was so happy I was telling my hubby all about it. I'm sure he just keeps me around for entertainment value :) Anyway my dream of knitting socks is so close now! I even went and got some bamboo needles and some yarn. I'm hoping the yarn will work. I'll most definitly be checking gauge (something I've never really had to do before). I'm so excited it's not even funny. Blogger won't let me do pics right now. I'll see if I can later. I'm off to knit some more!

makin me feel better

I have 2 kitties. I relate to this. They really aren't too mean though. Especially this past week that I haven't felt good they've been helping me. Their idea of helping is laying on me and generally being velcro kitties.

an hour and forty five minutes

Thats how long I spent at the doctors office today. With 2 energetic boys. Oy. They were running slow plus had people like me that they just squeezed in. At least everyone in the office was nice. Good attitudes really make a difference. Anyhoo turns out I have strep throat. Not fun. I'm hoping my family doesn't get it. Then on top of having a really sore throat, I'm also dealing with cramps from Hell. If it's not one thing it's another.

moms aren't supposed to get sick

eeh. I've felt crappy for a few weeks now. It started out as just allergies then I'm sure I had a head cold and now the past two 3 days I've had a nasty flu bug or something. I wish I could just lay around and rest and get better but there are 2 little boys that make that very difficult. ugh. sorry for the pity party. I'm going to go have some soup now.
