Let the countdown begin....



Yea!!!!  Only 5 and 1/2 more school days until the break!!  Whoo-hoo!!!  Not that I am counting or anything.


My swap partner got her package and, from what I can tell, liked everything in it.  Once she posts pictures on Ravelry, I will post pictures on here.  I don't want to steal her thunder or anything.

I FINISHED ALL THE SCARVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Yes, at 9:21 last night the very last end was weaved in and I an DONE!  Now all I have to do is wrap them.  I am planning on doing that tomorrow night while I bake cookies/make reindeer bait (candy).  Don't worry--I will take pictures tomorrow.  I am going to take them in on Friday and hopefully the little angels will love them.

Today one of them asked me what I wanted for Christmas.  I said "A house on the beach."  He blinked a few times and said tentatively..."I don't think I can afford that."  I laughed.

Another funny one of my girls comes rushing into the room to tell me another girl is trapped in a stall in the bathroom and can't get out!  I had one of the other kids be the monitor and went down to the restroom.  I took one look at the door and in my most deadpan voice asked the young lady if she had considered, oh, I don't know, UNLOCKING THE DOOR FIRST???!!!???  I heard a small little "oh" and then a giggle.


miss raven had to go get a mani/pedi today.  I think we all know how that went.  I was desperate though.  I felt a stinging sensation on my back this morning and, when I looked in the mirror, discovered that my baby had left a huge scratch down my back.  Quite on accident I am sure, but, for my own safety, I called the vet first thing this morning and made an appointment for this evening.  She was less than thrilled, to be sure, but it needed to be done.  To make up for the horror that she had to endure, we made a quick stop at Petco afterwards for a small treat.  And also so that she could do some Christmas shopping for her friends.  ;)  Sorry Buddy, you didn't make the list.

Ok.  While I may be finished with the scarves, I do still have at least one more gift to finish crocheting before this weekend so I am off to make some coffee and crochet like a fool.


P.S.  BFF, I went to Eastern Market and did some Christmas shopping this weekend.....I'm sure you'll love it!  Also--I need some ideas for Miss H, please. :)

    Can't wait to see the scarves! I know that they will love them!!!
    I know that your swap partner will love the package! You are AWSOME with those! :o)
    The bathroom story is TOO FUNNY! Reminds me of when my mom really did get stuck in one and my aunt did this crazy kick at the door (while my mom stood on the potty our of the way) to get her out! HAHAHAHA!!! Fun times! I really miss her!
    BFF LOVES her some Eastern Market!!!!!
    Gift cards for Miss H. will work just fine! (Barnes and Nobel, Wal Mart)
