Life just gets me sometines

It used to be I came to work and was bored on occassion. I maen like write your own novel type bored. Well that was in a previous job, but even here I occassionaly had a minute to check out blogs or actually update my own.

Used to be things got busy in August and it died out in mid-oct only to get busy again in March. well things are still crazy and it is all of my own fault. I was warned not to do a good job, they just find more for you to do.

Today sucked- really sucked. Last Saturday, I was all set to go to spinning guild- I hadn't been in over a year. I pay the dues and then never go, so I had Tim watch the kids and I was all set to go. Then the car wouldn't start, so I speant all day watching Vanity Fair- the BBC one and knitting on Eileen's socks. So Tim figured out what was wrong with the car, so valve was sticky and said I needed to get a tune up

So I took it in this morning- now I owe them $542 and my ride to the dealership went home sick today

Then I got a call from the school that Nate my youngest threw up at school and I needed to come get him- well no car to go, called the college where Tim works- they don;t know where he is- called MIL, she was all set to go and we finally found Tim

Now I feel sick- $542 for car repairs! just before the credit free christmas? I hope those kids understand why Mommy has nothing under the tree this year. Can I knit more things in just 26 days? I suppose easy fun fur scarves won't make it for all of the neices and nephews will it? Does the dollar store sell anything I can pass off as a real gift?

SP 9 Thanks`

I have been such a horrible blogger this Fall. I have no real excuse, but I was on vacation all last week so there are a few days I can account for.

First and foremost, I want to give a huge thankyou to my sp9 spoiler! I got the below all beautifully wrapped and shipped all the way from Austria! The socks fit great and I can't wait to use the yarn. What is missing from the photo are the gifts she even sent the boys- they grabbed and used these great little puzzles before I could get the photo taken. Thank you so much!

Sock-ret pal package

Thank you so much- sock-ret pal. I needed those M&Mm's that day! My package actually came last week, but I'm just getting to blog about it know. Last week I was on the road for work everyday but Tuesday, so Tuesday was a major clean up day at work.

So, in general it was a lousy week, followed by a worse weekend, so the bright spot of getting goodies in the mail was a bright spot indeed! I'm at home on dial-up so I'll have to add the phnoto tomorrow

We also got our first snow last week, on the 2nd, most of it is gone now, but it was definately there-
