In honor of not blogging in . . . forever, I’ll do a random post to kinda/sorta/almost catch up to it all.
~The Neely’s KNOW how to make cornbread dressing. It was a hit on Thanksgiving.
~The Boy’s #s did a mountain climb on Thanksgiving that gave me the fits. Can you say carb-o-palooza!?!??
~Megamind was a really great movie.
~I got less sleep over the Thanksgiving “break” than I normally do during a school week. Checking blood sugars and bolusing in the middle of the night is NOT fun.
~I am in love with the idea of an Advent Calendar Scarf. How. Brilliant! I’m knitting two – one in Brooks Farm Acero, one in Elann Baby Lace Merino because I felt like a punk for not knitting with laceweight.
~Mealworms stampede when they’re thirsty and smell cucumber.
~I think it’s funny that the above statement makes me laugh. I should probably be sad about it, but I really don’t care!
~I am ‘free’ to go to my knitting meeting this weekend. That makes two in a row, and I’m psyched!
~There is a Lego kit to make the Hogwarts castle that costs $500+. Seriuosly. Seriously? Who buys that? Probably not a single mom who’s a teacher.
~I am not ready for Christmas at all. How did it get to be December? (I think my world stopped last March.)
~Oprah rekindled my Beetle fever. I’m considering trading in the Civic next summer.
~Poodles have necks like owls.
~Driving makes me nuts. I have a 10 minute, 5 mile (if that) commute to and from work, yet every day I manage to get annoyed at someone else’s rudeness on the roads. Yes, this means YOU, Mr. Cadillac Escalade. Why does anyone even need a vehicle that large? I’m glad I don’t have to fill up your gas tank!
~We go to another class at Children’s in two weeks – this time to begin the process for getting on the pump. It’s a little scary, and yet I can’t wait. The Boy DEFINITELY can’t wait.
~I STILL can’t figure out how to properly link using this blog format. Part of it is my unwillingness to upload much on this computer – it’s a ‘donation.’ After the holidays, I will be replacing it. Unless Santa brings be a new one!
~I just learned what a ‘nupp’ is in knitting. I also learned, I can’t do them!! Hrmph!
