Vacation Week - So sad. Almost at an end.

Well, I haven't talked to Kristin since the day she called me (Wed.). I feel guilty because I had wanted to go by and see her (and Amelia Rose of course!) at the hospital today (Fri.). I had Christopher all day though (daycare closed) so never really got a chance to pass him off to anyone (well yes, there were strangers around but evidently there's a law about leaving your children with complete strangers for a while). I'm so glad that Mim's finally posted and her orange dining room sounds wonderful to me! Can't believe that Arati made Ross's sweater so quickly. I've had the week off and have tried to knit every minute I could but could never have made that entire sweater. Unfortunately Christopher was sick on Mon., Alex sick Mon. and Tues. and then I actually did get Wed. to myself. I'm not complaining because I managed to go into Great Yarns every day - even if it was only for 10 minutes. I made a new friend who also works at a law firm (very close to Great Yarns) so she comes over almost every day just to sit in there and knit. I did find a great yarn in the sale basket. Of course haven't decided what to make with it but that's not the point now is it? I did refrain from purchasing anything else this week though. I tried to really get started on a couple of things and to work on a couple of other things that had been on the needles for a bit. I just really miss seeing you guys! Didn't know how much I'd come to depend on my Wed. fix until I missed two in a row. Feel like I need to go into some sort of rehab center or something. I still want to get the hemp skirt pattern and I've finally started on the shawl from the Cornelia Tuttle Noro pattern book (pattern "Sursa") using one of the yarns I purchased from Brooks Farm. Oh, and I started a sweater for Christopher. Should be really quick - as "quick" as anything can be for me.

Okay, I found a lady working at Great Yarns on Thur. that I - listen up - do not like! I so disliked her that I actually wanted to tell her so when I left. I'm sure it was just a first impression though and I should feel horrible for feeling this way but it was actually disturbing. I'll fill you in later.

I also have to fill you in on Nicole's new job. The disfunction in my life never ends! Just too much fun! Miss you guys.

Doc has an interesting post on the subject of spam blogs, and their threat to free content , and naturally, a lot of people are jumping on the bandwagon, in my opinion, without much thought.
