Delayed Posting
Wednesday, July 18, 2007
Sorry about my lack of posting lovelies. I have pretty much been coming home and hanging out and sleeping. So here is another catch up blog.

Saturday - Grim and I went to a double Birthday party for a couple of friends of ours. It was a lot of fun. I jumped into the pool fully clothed after Grim double dared me. I started it. -=giggle=- Pretty soon people were either in the pool fully clothed or in their underwear. I think two people maybe had swim suits. -=giggle=- It was an incredible time.

Sunday - My back was killing me so we stayed home. I got a couple more things done around the house.

Monday- Back to work for the day. That night Grim's parents came into town for a free concert right acrossed the street from us. (Sometimes it pays to live across from a park and theatre). So we went with them. I had never heard of the band so I was a little nervous about going. After being reassured by Grim that I would love them, I chilled out. I was just tired and cranky. Long work day and I tell him when he asks why I look miserable. He looks at me.. and says.. "Sleep when your dead." I don't know why it hit me so hard but it did. The Cat Empire came on and I was up in front dancing my damn tired arse through the entire set. They were wonderful! I mean fantastic! Reggae, Ska, Latin mix.. you can't go wrong with that! His words stuck with me though, Funny what will strike you and make you have a moment of complete clarity. I do spend too much of my time thinking about work the next day. I should go out and do things while I still can. Sleep be damned. It could also be the reason why I have been utterly exhausted lately. =P

Tuesday - Just a day. Worked, cleaned up a bit.

Wednesday - Went to work, Got a terrible stomach bug, Came home from work at 11 and slept until 3.

That covers the life section, now to the knitting.

I finished the last washcloth for the moms. I realize I said that the last blog but I decided to make one more. Then I picked up the old poncho that I have been avoiding for months on end now. I am actually to a place where I have no idea what to do so I am going to put it to the boards and see what they say about it. Speaking of the boards! I am running next months along! Lifetime of Learning! Come Join! Come Join!

I am thinking about other things I wanted to write about but Migraine Residue is blocking all important notes out of my head. I went to Emily's Etsy store and it's down for now. I am hoping to get a matching/complimentary color of yarn that works with the other one I bought from her. I was looking through Stitch 'n' Bitch last night and saw a bag I want to make with it.

Anyways, I'll probably think of more later but I am done for now. I am cutting into Grim's computer time.
