I’m having one of those days already, so I’m very tempted to just crawl back in bed and call it a day. I made an extra large pot of coffee because I could just tell I’d need it. When I didn’t hear the blub-blub sound of coffee perking any more, to went to get a cup. But what’s this? Where is all the coffee I just made? There’s only about a cup and half here! I pour a cup and get a piece of chocolate cake (yes, I’m bad). Later I go back to drain the pot and notice a cup of coffee on the counter. Then another on the stove. I’m the only one who drinks coffee, so I know they are mine.
But I can’t have a day like this. I have to be able to think. I have to finish knitting the mitts by Friday for DD#1’s birthday. I have to count rows for the cables as I knit because once they’ve been knit they become invisible. At the same time I have to keep up with thumb increases. I also have to remember to breathe and blink. What if the phone or the doorbell rings? What if the dogs want to come in or go out? My brain is on overload. I’m about to throw a breaker and I haven’t even started yet. I’d better fix another pot of coffee.
At least I have FOs. Knitting 4 Children is doing a knitalong of my raglan baby sweater pattern and I am so glad! This is a great group of women- and oh so creative and clever. They have helped me work the kinks out- booboos are fixed now so if anyone wants to give it a go everything should work.
I was double tagged awhile back for the 6 Weird Things meme and forgot about it. (Actually it took me this long to whittle the list down to 6.) Since I’ve done it before, I won’t tag anyone again. Here goes:
6 Weird Things
1- My first job (other than babysitting) was as a security guard for a mental institution.
2- I mix my peanut butter and jelly together. Looks gross, but spreads better.
3- When I was pregnant with DD#1, I constantly craved- and ate- Twizzlers and Porterhouse steaks. They are now among her favorite foods.
4- I read under the covers every night with a flashlight. Actually I have two- one for backup incase the batteries die.
5- I’ll wear my favorite jeans until they can practically stand on their own, but I can’t stand to put on a pair of socks I’ve wore even for a second.
6- When I eat something small like M&Ms or peanuts, I eat two at a time, one for each side of my mouth.
DD#2 had a Super Bowl party Sunday. She bought enough chips to feed a small country- about a bag and a half for each person who came. Needless to say, we have a few bags left over. If you happen to be in the area come on over and knit, and please bring dip. I’ll provide the coffee. Just grab any cup you see sitting around.
