Next on the list is to knit again. In order to do this, I'm going to try to leave the office by 7 to 7:30 instead of 9 or 10. So, we'll see what can happens this next week...of course, I'm off on Friday and Monday because I'm traveling to Kansas City to visit my friends, whcih could mess up that attempt. Personally, I cannot wait!!!!!! There's a lot of work that needs to be done between now and then though...

Still not a lot of knitting going on. It's really hard when you walk through the door of the house, through the living room and straight to bed. I do have a new project to start a baby sweater for a friend who's expecting. So, as soon as I'm inspired, I'm going to do that.
Favorite purchase today...Red Tulips. Yeah Spring!!!

I left work, albeit at 7pm, but I came home and exercised and then, wonder of all wonders, made dinner!! Wow! Amazing. I'm much more relaxed. Still didn't knit though... Got to take one day at a time.

Wow! So this is what it's like to not work on a Sunday...
So for now, I'm going to finish cleaning the kitchen, doing laundry and maybe even start a new knitting project. Hope everyone has a great Easter! This day was just what I needed. :-)

I felt the need for some new spring clothes today, so I went to the mall, which was the mistake. My favorite cardigan got a hole in it that I couldn't fix. So, I ended up buying two new shirts, a cardigan set and a cute t-shirt. Yeah. Got some good work stuff, which I need and just a cute t-shirt.
I also went car shopping. I still am not in love. I went and looked at the 2008 Sebring Convertible. It seems really small in the inside and smaller in the back and when the top is down, there's no room in the trunk what-so-ever. I don't know what to go look at next. UgghH!!

What I learned today...
The other lesson is that my 10 year old TV requires special equipment to attach it to my new TV. Thankfully, the 5 year old VCR still works and can still serve as a liaison between my 12 year old TV and my new VCR. How crazy is that!!!! I just can't justify buying a new TV when my old one still works.

Just my normal sock pattern with a 2 by 2 rib, except where I made a mistake span des>
design feature. They're super comfy. Yeah!!!
I'm tired of all my projects. I need to figure out what I want to work on. I'm in a knitting funk. At least I'm knitting again...a little bit.

But my spate of makeover, has left me very happy. I love having curtains in my bedroom. Totally changes the room. Still need to hem the curtains so 2' feet are laying on the floor (IKEA curtains are 57"x98" How crazy is that???), but for now, they're hanging and look totally awesome. My chairs are sitting at my dining table and I have my cool table cloth from William Sonoma (Very much like the ones I saw all over when I was in France and Belgium and wanted so badly). My sock and lace yarn is no longer laying accross my spare bed. It's all put away. Yeah!!! Now, just need to hang my picture frames that I got. I have pictures of Lucas and Lindsay in two of them and then I need a picture of the 2 of them to go in the 3rd.

This remarkable thing happened today. I left work and it was still light out...sort of. Wow! It's amazing. Even though I left work at 7pm I feel like I left a lot earlier. This is fantastic! No, I still didn't knit, but I did finish this book I've been reading. I was at the good part at the end and needed to finish it. Maybe knitting tomorrow. Everything can't happen in one day. :-)

We had a couple of good days this week, but this weekend, it's cool and rainy again... No car shopping or outlet mall (yes, I was going to go there as well). Maybe I'll go to the movies. I don't know. All I know is that I booked my tickets to KC for Knitting in the Heartland (still haven't sent in my application...) and all I need to do is survive the next 3 and a half weeks.
Maybe there will be knitting this weekend as well. We'll have to see...

@%&$ Apartment complex!!!!!
What was in the mystery package you as??? A birthday present from Christine. Yummy, yummy stuff from Tastefully Simple.
My two absolute favorites. Almond Pound cake and Stawberry Rhubarb spread. Yummy. I went right to the store and got some English muffins to put the spread on. Woo Hoo!!! Thank you Christine!!! I had to laugh when I opened it because a friend in St. Louis who's a part-time Tastefully Simple consultant e-mailed me their spring stuff and e-mailed her back that I was going to have to place an order for pound cake and Strawberry Rhubarb spread.
I only wonder how long it was up at the office...stupid apartment complex. So, if anyone sends a package and I don't acknowledge, let me know because the office is obviously not notifying me...Ughh!
So on to the yarn... Little Knits, enablers that they are got in some Kauni yarn, so I, of course, had to purchase some to try it out. Every seems to see the love.
Of course, since I was already paying shipping, I added on 2 skeins of cotton fleece to make a baby sweater and a skein for Silky Sock from the Great Adirondak yarn company. Red is definitely the color this year...
On my grapecicle socks, I think I'm going to frog them again. I already changes to smaller needles, but I think I want to start the bottom triangle closer to the toe. I'm going think about it though since I already have almost 4 inches knitted.
