It's Monday....and no snow!

Really was hoping for some as the girls are out of school today and tomorrow and they could have their snow and not have to make up a day of school.

I, on the other hand, have to go to work. Since Trumpet Princess spent 2 nights away from home this weekend, maybe she and Goth Daughter can make it through the day without killing each other. One can only hope.

No pictures of what has been knitted......that is called lazy! I have finished a shrug and have debated and debated about it. I am use to loose things and this is a snug shrug. I did throw it on one day and wear it to work over plain old t-shirt and got several compliments on it. Maybe I will come home and take pictures and let others decide for me.

Started a shawl from the Lion Brand site for their microspun yarn. I had bought a ton of the purple 2-3 years ago when they were having a sale at Michael's on it and never did anything with it. Liking the pattern, but feel I will still be knitting on it a year from now.

LYS finally got in some Lorna's Laces sock yarn and am knitting up a pair of simple socks on 2 circular needles.....first time trying that. Took a little getting use to, but getting the hand of it and I do admit I like the fact there aren't needles poking out everywhere. But I was use to the DPN's, so still undecided, but like the feel of the yarn.

Oh well, have to get dressed and get to work.........

I am a bad cold person......

Yesterday was not a good day......when you try to upgrade your system from ME to XP and you have only had 1 cup of coffee and 2 pieces of toast at 5:30am, then don't blame others when you start having a low-blood sugar melt down at 1pm. Of course, driving through McDonalds to get a little something to get you going again as you are taking your computer over to Mr. Fix-it and having them mess up your order (1 hamburger, 1 sweet tea extra ice....what's to mess up you ask?) doesn't help matters.

Then at the end of the day, finally getting back online so that you can mail out a ton of ebay wins to people and you stop by Taco Bell (yes, it was a fast-food day) and they short you on your cinnamon twists and you have to go back to Taco Bell to correct said order (rolling on the floor with Goth Daughter over the cinnamon twists is not how I wanted to end the day). However, since I had already come home once and thrown (yes, thrown) the main part of the order into the house, she would have probably given them to me without a problem.

So this seems very fitting.....

Fit fit fits.
You will perish of fits. Repeat this to yourself:

"Things can work out even if I don't get

my way. Things can work out even...."

But with a dose of "night time cold relief" and a short day at work today, maybe my rapidly approaching cold will rapidly approach and slide right on by....sniff, sniff, blow.
