Busy doing something pretty close to nothing, but different from the day before.

Wow. That sums it up entirely.

Should I go ahead and blog anyway? Sure! There's pictures to post, after all.

Dad's socks so far. I'd wanted to add in the spongy holes, but then thought of the confirmation dress I need to make. While most people, including me, could get a pair of socks done in a month, I don't want to be up late, feverishly knitting on a deadline. Up late knitting anyway is ok. ;) These are fun and very yellow! Spongebob would be proud. I can't wait to attach the googly eyes, and what am I going to do about the smile??? There's a huge stash of embroidery thread just waiting to be used...

Then, there was some stash enhancement. A new store opened up 10 miles away, with more Rowan and Cascade 200 in one place than I've ever seen in my life. Wow! There's been some rumblings of me teaching there, but I'll believe it when I see it. She said she'd call but she won't, then I'll get all insecure about my abilities as a teacher and want to hide under the bed. Which, I can't fit under, for which I blame Cadbury eggs. Those and whole wheat saltine crackers. I've not posted weight for a while because it's up, around 162-164. I've not been working out other than the paper route and house cleaning.

I may suck eggs as a teacher, but I'll always be good at going off on a tangent. I don't think I'm a bad teacher or anything, I'm always second-guessing myself. My thinking "Are you as good as you could be?" all the time is par for the course. The answer is always 'no' because who could answer 'yes'?

Yeesh. Now that I've talked myself into a glum mood... Time to straighten up the house, put away laundry, and sort some yarn. Sounds odd, I know, but once the place is cleaned up, I get in a better mood.

Buck up, chickie, and come nest with us on Saturday!

I need guidance on the flat chick sweater. I put the front on then took it back off and did a wash/block on the pieces because I think my V-neck is off. (Did you hear me scream last night?)

LOL! I'm going to have to, if nothing else to get out of helping Fry with newspaper collections. Yech. I did the majority of her route today, and as soon as she puts down the Nintendo DS, we're finishing it up. We WERE supposed to have hideous storms today, but noooooo. I 'saved' us all by doing the paper route early, so if there's no hail or tornadoes, you can thank me. :D

I wondered what that faint cry of anguish was. Surely the V-neck isn't crooked. Could it be your shoulders are uneven, that your neck isn't right in the middle of your torso?

Now I HAVE to be there tomorrow, just so you can beat me up, huh? ;) Maybe your gauge changed from one sleeve to the other? I know, straw grasping.

I LOVE a clean house - I just hate to be the one that makes it that way. I always feel so free to do what I want to do after giving a good go at the clutter.
