Not enough

November 10, 2008

I’ve been slowly working on my Apres Surf Hoodie only to find myself in a conundrum…  I don’t have enough yarn.  How these things happen I don’t really know, but I’m guessing that counting yardage involves math which involves numbers and 200 + 200+ 200… Wow that’s a lot of two’s and zero’s….  So I’m a good 200-400 yards short.  I would really encourage people to read and do a bit of research first when it comes to your particular pattern’s yardage before jumping face first into your project and by “people” I really mean me.  So I’ve tossed my hoodie aside and am at a lost as to what to do next.  Problem is, I don’t seem to have any time these days to do anything, but basketball season has started so that means a couple of extra hours on the weekend in which my butt is firmly planted in the bleachers which means my hands are available to do just about anything I want them to do (not including flipping the bird to a referee who makes a bad call – apparently that’s frowned upon not just in basketball but in all sporting events.)

Oh, and my son was invited to play Select basketball.  We shall see how this goes… I suspect spectacular meltdowns and a lot of hair tossing as his bangs fall into his eyes.


“Mom and Dad, why did you vote….”

My husband:  Because the republicans piss me off.

Me:  Because we are open minded, forward thinkers, not afraid of change.  We don’t want the same ole boy network.

Today is an AWESOME day for all Democrats and what an incredibly graceful concession speech given by Senator McCain.
