Dear Spiffy Secret Pal,

Your Christmas theme was a hit with me. I really enjoyed the complete package! I let my girls help open all the gifts (from Colorado?) and they loved every bit of it.

I will post pics soon as my work computer is ancient and doesn't like the idea of having to work to hard. I have been trying since Monday to post and this is the first time my computer would actually let me stay online for more than 2 minutes.

I will also update knitting next time as I am SLAMMED at work and barely have time to breath let alone blog. So I'll consider this my "smoke break" as I don't smoke and stand on the dock and shoot the shit. I'll spend my "smoke break" updating my blog.

Busy, busy life

I cannot believe that it has been over a week again. I am so busy at work here lately, I feel as though the blogger world is passing me by. I really need my own computer...BAD!

Well, anyway...on the knitting front. I have been working away on my Summer Sock Party sock for my pal. All that is left is to do the short row toe. (Don't worry pal, I will be sending short row instructions for both). It's really pretty, just ask Miss Tonia.

I am also still on the hunt for a yarn worthy enough to become the Central Park Hoodie.

Sorry for the short little post, but I have more work to get done. Pics to come soon...hopefully...but not of my sock 'cause it's a secret (me grinning). C-ya!

What will they think of next?

Ok, now I've worked in the air freight industry for over 12 years now and have yet to see anything like this...

We are delivering this to New York. I can only imagine what our driver will be thinking...I mean dreaming on his way to New York with this Victoria's Secret Hummer on the back of his roll back. Heck, imagine all the strange stares and fingers pointing he will get.

Anyway, I just had to share. This will be the highlight of this week. If something tops it, I'll let you know. C-ya!

Holy Cow....I'm A Slacker!!!

Wow! How time flies when you don't have a computer at home. The only time I get to update my blog is either at work or at my mom's. Yes, I know...a 30 year old woman who doesn't own her own computer, YIKES! I am still in the process of trying to steal from the rich so I can afford my poor a$$ ways. For the most part though, things are starting to get on track.

For many years of my life I haven't really known what I wanted to do. But I have found sanity in raising my girls and in knitting. And just for poops and grins I enjoy torturing my ex (aka:my babies daddy) . It makes for great stories later. Anyway, I just needed to update my blog since I have been such a bad blogger ( I am sorry).

Work life has been slammed. But, hey, it makes the time fly. Then after work I usually meet my girls over at our local watering hole (grandma drops them off) and I let them swim. That's usually where I get most of my knitting done. Then it's time to go home and do my daily chores... dinner, clean up, showers, laundry, feed dog, water dog, and other daily/weekly odds and ends.

On the knitting front I now have my Summer Sock Pals yarn picked out and a pattern too. Once I get my Trek Along Socks finished up, which I'm on the instep of sock #2, I'll get started on my SSP sock. Then I'll get back to my Rogue again. I had to practically force myself to set it aside to finish my Trek Along Socks. I made a promise to myself to keep my fingers off of it until my SSP's sock is complete and sent out in the mail. Which just makes me work even harder at getting things done in a timely fashion. Well, that's all for now. Pics to come later. C-ya!
