Life’s like that……

Posted by Allison on April 14, 2007

Friday was a crazy day.  My last day of taking care of the child that shall remain nameless after a week with no Italian goddess who normally cares for him.  Apparently to cap of this week the little shit angel decided that I’d had it too easy, there would be no napping today, there would be no listening today, there would be no conforming today. Today would be the day Mommy realized why it’s important to make permanent decision on the future of children instead of going with the old “shouldn’t happen” kind of attitude she’s been using so far.  So anyway, we’ve already established I’m not June Cleaver….let’s just say I was very happy (close to tears happy) when the Italian Goddess phoned to say that she was completely ready to take back the evil one on MONDAY!

 I met my beloved at the school and switched vehicles with children for vehicle without children and did a few hours of realtor stuff…showing houses…..etc…..Then I answered an emergency fashion call from Roxie Roller who if anyones cares bought the most beautiful lilac gown for a formal event tonight….she looked stunning…and if I didn’t know how hard she worked to get into that size 8 I would hate her a little bit….

Then I came home, it was late, I was hungry, my feet hurt, I needed a drink of the alcoholic persuasion and dh said the most glorious words…”you’re going to be happy, there’s a package for you”

 I squealed, I did a little hop and I ran through the garage full of crap I swore I would unpack a month ago and saw this!


Inside was the most wonderful surprise!  Knit Picks sock yarn in Dancing! The book I’ve been coventing “Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles” by Cat Bordhi Knit picks classic circular needles to start my new project with AND Chocolate Truffles!!!!!!!!! (There was also some chocolate bunnies for my kids but I don’t like them right now so they won’t get them until Sunday)


Oh Secret Pal you have no idea how much you made my day.  I was soooo down and you picked me right up! Thank you so much!  You are the best!
