Not to brag or anything, but today was another good day. To be honest, I still can't believe how good I have it. I have the best class in the school, good parents, and a great boss.
Right now, life is good.
Football officially starts tonight. So, so happy! My COWBOYS play the giants in New York and, to be fair, I don't really expect them to win. However, NO ONE seems to be giving them a chance. Not even a wee little one. That makes me sad.
I'm not gonna lie. I won't be watching the game (I get too frenetic and it totally FREAKS miss raven out) and I am not going to be all "I have to turn on the TV to see how badly we beat the giants" tomorrow morning. If (and that really is a big IF) we win, I will hustle to the nearest convenience store and purchase a paper to take with me to school tomorrow morning, but I won't be setting the alarm any earlier, if you know what I mean.
Don't you hate it when someone gets something you kinda really wanted and then does nothing but brag about it? Kind of makes you want to....
I don't have a Yarn Along post today mostly because I haven't been reading much. I did get a copy of Mockingjay (the third in the Hunger Games trilogy) yesterday but I haven't started listening to it yet. I may put the first disc in a little later since, you know, I'm not watching the game.
I am knitting and still loving it. Why didn't someone tell me how much fun it is sooner? I haven't crocheted in a while and, to be honest, I don't miss it. I am working on my Striped Study shawl. Sorry, if you aren't on Ravelry, you won't be able to see it (I don't think...) I love this pattern but my wrap-and-turns aren't so great. I also need to learn how to carry the yarn up the side for color changes because:
- all those ends to weave in are going to be a youknowwhat
- the stitches on the side where the ends need to be woven in are kind of loose--I an hoping I can tighten them up a bit after I block the thing.
