The Horror

We had to go to Houston yesterday to pick up hubby’s passport and to prepare for the three hour drive, I put my knitting in my purse.  Do you know that purse+knitting+kid’s drinks+spillage do not equal a happy ending?
As I stuck my hand in my purse I immediately felt “wet.”  I pulled out my digital camera which was decidedly damp, the wallet was wet, my little makeup bag was wet and as this realization hit me, I frantically pulled out my knitting only to find….


The scream that came from my mouth was very reminiscent of a crack addict going to her stash only to find that her dog had peed all over it.  OMG!  Apparently the drink that spilled in my purse reacted with a blue pen I had in my purse, which in turn stained my yarn.  *Hyperventilating,* *Deep Breaths,* *Eyes glazed over,* *Brain dead*

And then came the ranting.  “NO MORE DRINKS IN MY CAR.  EVER!  YOU ARE SO LUCKY I LOVE YOU BECAUSE….”   I will omit the rest, for my uhhhh…. protection.  *looks around furtively*   Oh and why do my kids always laugh when I go crazy?  “Mommy you are so funny!” *Insert peals of laughter*  NO, damnit, I am scary and bad ass.  FEAR ME.    The good news is that while my kids think I’m nuts and apparently hilarious as hell, I just cut that ball and attached a new one.  Unfortunately,  that is virtually an entire ball of yarn that is completely ruined.  *sigh*

    Oh! Oh! Oh! I totally feel your pain! I guess if worse came to worse, you could have dyed the whole thing. I’m glad you were able to work around it.

    My husband thinks it’s time for you to buy new kids, lol. Sorry about the yarn mishap, Cotton Fleece is such a nice yarn, one of my favorites.
