Lovely November Weekend

Friday night was a great Girls Night Out.  Denise, Tara, Lisa and I went to Margaritas for dinner.  Yes, we did have Margaritas.  We then headed for Mohegan Sun did some window shopping and a little gambling.  Came home $89 dollars ritcher than when I left for the evening.  Very nice having a "free" night out.  Especially enjoyed Tara's version of  "Pour some sugar on me".  Laughed so hard I snorted..

Had terribly hot feet that night.  Did plan on being out so late and I wore my Uggs, with socks.  Very hot feet, I'm surprised that flames weren't shooting out of my heels.

Saturday night we had another Girls Night and went to see "The Blind Side".  What an amazing movie.  Nice to know that there are still good people in the world.  Cried through almost the whole movie.

Also worked on a few projects this weekend (aside from laundry and house work).  I made a few small gifts using some lovely wool felt I bought a few years back.  Also used ribbon and bead.  Made an ornament, small tissue holder and a few pins.  Lots of fun.  Aside from the blisters from the hot glue gun.  OUCH.  I pulled the glue off not realizing it was stuck to a blister and I took my skin with it.  Remembered to have a small bowl of ice water after that.

Life sucks when you can't even make a frozen pizza.

This pizza sums up October as a whole.  How does this happen?

It's frozen, you cook it and this...  Where did I go wrong.

I'm Still Standing...

Still standing, HA!  More like hobbling.  My knees are killing me.  I keep thinking about that college graduation speech that was turned into a song in the 90's, you know the one I'm talking about, says something about being kind to your knees.  Well, I think my knees should be kind to me and stop acting like they're 98 instead of 38.  Or, 9 leap years, doesn't that sound better. 
Trying to blog every day, not doing too well.  But atleast I'm trying.

So I survived yesterday, It was kinda touch and go what with almost getting run over and all.  Today I took Parker to the doctors and yes, he has a sinus infection.  I swear, I need to go to med school, everyone always calls me with their problems for a consultation.  I've diagnosed everything from turrets syndrom to fifths disease.  Am I good or what.

Oh yeah, I also took my own stitches out the other night.  From my hand, not my knitting.  Wow does it feel better.  It doesn't look like I'm gonna have a scar.  I heal pretty fast.  Good thing since I'm hurting myself all the time.

I also finished my shawl, I'll post a picture as soon as I block it.  I also finished knitting a lovely star for a tree topper from the newest issue of Interweave Knits.  Once I stuff it, I'll post that pic too.

I totally forgot about Halloween.  We had a great day.  Aaron got home from work earlier than expected.  Our friends Jason and Alicia came for the day and brought their darling babe Isabel (we are her god parents).  We all went to lunch at Chili's and the guys had back ribs, barbaque sauce.  (Sorry I couldn't resist).  To keep Izzy busy, I taught her to pour salt on the coloring book and slap it.  We had so much fun watching the salt fly up in the air.

We had fun watching Izzy trick or treat at a few houses.  Aaron had to go to bed at 8 because he had to be to work early.  We must have had 20 or so people come over to visit.  It was wonderfull see Maggie and sweet, sweet angel Madasyn.  She is looking so good.  Tara and the girls were here as well as my partner in crime Denise.  Even Niki and Andy stopped by with their girls.  We had so much fun.  Ate carrots and celery with my yummy garlic and spinach dip,  and chips with my homemade salsa sauce.  Num Yummy.

Me with a scary red wig looking like I just woke up.

Maggie, Tara and Denise. The Ho's.

And Tara's daughter Kylie.

One of those days....

I hate these types of days.

I feel like I've been run ragged.  I had a doctors apointment at 4:20 and actually saw the doctor by 4:30, that was the good part.  I was there for a check on my meds and guess what?  I found out I had broncitus (yeah, I know it's spelled wrong and I just don't care).  So, I went to get my meds filled and I sat down and waited for a half hour.  When they finally called my number one was missing so I had to go back to the other line then wait another 20 minutes for them to fill the one they forgot.  I love being punished for others stupidity.

I came home and Aaron has duty and he wants me to bring him dinner.  It is now after 6pm and I have NO CLUE what we're having and I frankly don't care.  Parker is upset because his head hurts, I think it may be a sinus infection.  I call Aaron back and tell him I'm not bringing him dinner and to see if one if his guys can get him something.

Parker wants to know what we're gonna eat.  I decide pasta and some fresh french bread (yes, that also means a latte for me).  So I run to Stop and Shop to get my latte and french bread and this crazy lady cuts through the parking lot and almost t-bones me.  I scream numerous profanities as I park my car.  Then as I'm walking in the cross walk to the store an old man almost runs me over.  I am not kidding he was soooo not paying attention.

Yeah, yeah karma for not wanting to bring Aaron dinner.  But in my defense the store is just at the corner and he wanted Mc Donalds which is at the other end of town, then I have to go to the waterfront to bring it to him and by the time I got home Parker's would be cold.  So there. 

I've had enough of this day, time to relax and do nothing,.
