And I ran. I ran so far away. I just ran. I ran all night and day. Couldn’t get away.

Hello there. It looks like I’ve been away for nine days, hasn’t it? Using what I’ve written in my calendar as a guide, I shall now fill you in on what you missed during the past nine days. I printed some reports for a meeting. I then made copies of those reports and took them […]

Me: Okay. The music is getting louder. It’s time for us to have a conversation. My sister: What is it? Me: If everyone around us starts to dance, are you going to join them? My sister: No. I’m not. Me: Good. Because me neither. Do you see that lady over there? Have you ever done […]

But like a big red rose that’s made of paper, there isn’t any sweetness in your heart!

You know how it is. You go to Stitches Midwest and you squeeze a bunch of fiber and you rub a bunch of yarn on your neck and you eat a bunch of curry (and cheesecake) and then you spend the next few months thinking of nothing but spinning and knitting and curry (and cheesecake). […]

It feels like Saturday, doesn’t it? It does. This morning I hung out at the hospital while my mom had surgery on her ankle. (Necrotic tissue, bone spurs, ice machine and elevation for a week, you get the picture. All is now well, although she got really sick to her stomach right after I left. […]

Our water meter was replaced last week. I put in a request that the repairman call before arriving so I could put the dogs in their crates. I don’t believe Scout or Henry would ever bite anyone, but Scout has been known to pee on new people, and now that Henry weighs nearly 40 pounds, […]

I was going to make a Chernobyl joke, but it’s still too soon.

December 29th, 2011 · 17 Comments · Daily, Sticks and String

I’ve been doing a lot of this lately: In the past five days, I’ve watched four Cary Grant movies. I started out with An Affair to Remember, next up was People Will Talk, then The Grass is Greener, and Walk, Don’t Run. I started Charade last night and will probably finish it this evening. The […]

I’ve been thinking about Christmas knitting.

November 2nd, 2011 · 10 Comments · NaBloPoMo, Sticks and String

As you know, I’m a fan of knitting. AND, I’m a fan of giving things away. Four months ago (Really? Has it been that long?! Yes! It has!), we helped raise some money to get Aaron a bike. I paired up a giveaway with that post, and I’m pleased to report that the fingerless mitts […]

Just filling you in over here…

Remember Henry? Yep. He’s still itchy. Yesterday morning I took him to a new vet where they did a few skin scrapes and found that his bacteria and yeast numbers are through the roof, even though he had a bath less than twelve hours before the appointment. He is now on another round of antibiotics, […]

Thanks to each and every one of you for your words of advice and/or encouragement yesterday. Last night Meredith took me aside and said, “You know how the TSG club stood for The Shady Girls? Today Regina decided to change the S. The club is now The Sex Girls.” Jeff and I agreed that a […]

Why do I need 24 smiley stickers?!

August 8th, 2011 · 10 Comments · Balls of Cake, Daily, Sticks and String

I just purchased one of those 18-Month Mom Planners. I really wish there would have been a better selection of planners, but when you’re shopping at a big cruddy store that’s going out of business soon, you sort of get what you get. Anyway, my planner came with hundreds of goofy little stickers and spaces […]
