Ok, I give--I've switched over to the new blogger. Are you happy now (Rachel)? I'll try to post things in a more timely manner from here on out. But I'm not promising anything...

I stole this from Lana...


You are Justice

Equity, rightness, probity, executive; triumph of the observing side in law.

Justice is about cold, objective balance through reason or natural force. You can't keep smoking and drinking without consequences to your health. It is the card that advises cutting out waste and insists that you make adjustments, do whatever is necessary to bring things back into balance, physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually. It is a card of balance and harmony; if there is imbalance, the correction may
require recourse to the law.

I am a terrible gift recipient

I just realized that I haven't posted anything about the latest gift recieved from my secret pal. I feel just terrible!!! Sadly, I don't have my camera here, so I don't have any pictures, yet...but I will tell you that I got some really cute wool, some dpns, and a customized sock pattern that seems pretty idiot-proof. Well, I hope it's idiot-proof--I have yet to master the art of knitting on dpns. Should be quite an adventure...I'll keep you posted on the progress (once it starts).

It's baby time

No...not me. A friend of mine had her baby yesterday. I was a little jealous of her for several reasons--but not because I want another baby...I'm done with all of that!

She was prego when I met her, and can I just say that you could only tell that she was prego if you saw her from the front or the side. She was a skinny mama-to-be. I, on the other hand, gained at least 65 lbs with each of mine, and I looked like a Weeble.

This is her first child, so when Papa called our house at 7:30 yesterday morning saying, "It's time", I told him that she may not have that baby for another day or two (as it was in my case). Her water hadn't broken yet, and she was still able to walk around and talk through the contractions.

Long story 3:00 I stopped by the hospital to lend them my video camera. Papa met me outside, and I asked how things were going. He says to me, "She's here." I didn't understand at first, because obviously I knew she was at the hospital. "No--SHE'S here. Syl had the baby."

So much for shortening a long story...She only had to push for 20 minutes--half an hour after they got to the hospital. (My first, I pushed for 3 hours with no drugs after having been in labor for 2 days already!)

Now I have a little baby girl to knit for!! I'm so excited. What to make first???

It's my Birfday...yea--I said "birfday"--gotta problem with that??

So, today is my birthday, and I thought I would share what I got...(sorry, no new knitting pics yet--keep your pants on!)

I'll start with the gifts I got from the old man and the kids...T got me Season 3 of Arrested Development (RIP), and you can't see it that well in the picture--but he also got me a bottle of Vera Wang "Princess" perfume. It smells great!! The Ramones set was from my almost-10-year-old son. It's got an almost full library of their songs and a DVD full of interviews and videos. Funny story about this: Back in August, we were shopping for T's b-day, and I saw this. I picked it up and and told KeKe that this would make a great birthday present for me. Well, he actually remembered--which wouldn't be so strange, because he remembers alot of weird stuff--but this kid can't remember that I asked him to put his backpack away 5 minutes after I ask him. Hadzilla's present is not pictured--it's just a cute pair of pants...and some candy that has long since been eaten! Anyway, Family, I thank you for the super-great gifts.

The flowers and stuff arrived today--they're from my parents. You'll notice the Knit.1 and Creative Knitting. Che, this means you can have your Knit.1 back! You can see for yourself all the other things they sent me. And, since I'm such a nrrrrd, I included the wrapping paper in the pic. I couldn't help myself--it's really cool paper. (Obviously, it's the geometric paper under the candles, and the pink and black paper under the Lifesavers)

I'm still expecting a couple more packages, so when T gets back on Saturday with the camera, I will be sure to post again.

PRGE questionaire update

I updated my questionaire below...the changes are in blue...

About me

  • I'm KnitGyver
  • From Midwest, United States
  • I'm a stay at home mom (well, I work part-time...)to two kids and one husband. I've been accused of being sarcastic and snarky. I'm trying to curb my potty-mouth for the sake of the children, but I've been known to slip. You've been warned.
