my life as a crocheter & knitter & working mom

Tuesday, January 02, 2007


I know, I'm being unoriginal. But, it's so cute to think of the year in Bondsian terms.

Things have been going well, we totally made our numbers at work, I got all my chores done before my parents arrived (except Kirk still does not have a zipper, and I still have yarn to finish a few more ball bands), I've not gone completely insane [although, little miss angry (kind of like Little Miss Scary, but without the smile) has made a couple short visits mainly when I was stressed aobut the to do list], and I'm itching much less.

So those are all plusses and we're only 2 days into the new year.

On the negatives, I've killed my new digital camera* and B's being a complete brat about going to bed.

On the fun side, he's totally getting into listing things. The other day he listed what he wanted for brefast when he woke up: juice, vegetables [which the child barely eats at any other meal], sandwich. It's amazing how verbal he's becoming.

I haven't bought any yarn, but I will be making a purchase soon. I need to buy a zipper for Kirk. I won't buy any yarn, although, depending upon the purchase point, needles or fabric may come home with me. Not to mention some memory wire. I want to make my own wine glass jewelry.

Here are my 06 FO's. No, I'm not sneaking Kirk in, he's not done (not to mention no picture).
