It's also Harry Potter's birthday! Whoohoo! Have to re-read the whole set to celebrate and watch all the movies again. Harry Potter marathon!
Ran all over yesterday doing paperwork to get the truck. Got the truck and then had to do more paperwork for insurance and such. I still haven't got to drive it yet. Did go out to lunch and I kept smelling my best friend Andrea at the restaurant...the waitress had on (a lot, bathed in it) the perfume she always wore...of course this really got to me bad. I'd like to really have a good cry but...It's just not fair she had to die, so hard to deal with. Had to rush off to the swim team board meeting...should of stayed home except I'm the secretary. What a fiasco that was! As soon as I walked into the pool building it was one thing after another...poop! Yes, taming the tongue! Don't even want to think of it...probably will wait a couple of days before I type the minutes up because I just don't want to deal with it.
Today is supposed to be private swim training and swim team practice but I'm so exhausted I don't want to do any of it. Plus my tooth is throbbing so bad I think it needs a root canal. Don't want to go back to the dentist I had because he hurts to much so would have to find a new one and transfer files...pain in the butt! Yeah, I know pain in the tooth! Did knit a few rows this morning and am now going to go water my plants. Tootles!

Yeah, we pick the truck up today! I can't wait to drive it. Want to practice in the rural areas and not in town until I'm used to the size. I feel sorry for the curbs we will meet...jk! Its 45 minutes away so hubby and I are going to go out to lunch too...there's a yarn store not to far away...hmmmm. Got to get back to insure it and stuff. Plus Jimmy has swimming and I have a board meeting. I was going to join the masters swim team but my throat is still burning a little and stuffy nose, I should probably wait. (Still dreading the swim suit in front of stranger thing):)
So busy yesterday. I vacuumed the house...did laundry, ironed for an hour and a half...cleaned all three bathrooms...it sure seemed a lot more when I was doing all that and it barely took up a line! Oh, I also vacuumed the pool and then did laps for 40 minutes. I knew there was something else that took a long time! Gonna go knit for 15 minutes before I have to get busy!

Going to do my ironing while I watch the race and swim team secretarial duties! Maybe even sneak a little knittin' time in too. Here I've been working on the same sock for over two weeks and Jen in Fl. has cranked out a wagonful! I've also been working on my mosaic Pooh puzzle which is sooo addicting...I keep telling myself I'll do this or that after I find one more piece! Hmmm. I'm also done with the Harry Potter book but yet I don't know if I want to find out the ending....I don't want it to end...whahhh! Yes, that's a whine!
See ya later!

Going to get off my feet and take a siesta in the nice air conditioned room! Thank God for my crocs, my feet would be killing me if I hadn't of worn them today. Might be going to look at a new truck later, we'll see. Tootleloo and nighty night!

My friend Darcy will hopefully be getting out of the hospital tomorrow too. Coach Falicia is healing nicely from her surgery performed on Tuesday. Lots of good news!
I'm feeling better today. I guess rest does work! I worked on my mosaic Pooh puzzle a lot, read a little Harry (no not done yet), and took a nap. Still a little congested but didn't wake up with my throat on fire! Have to be better by tomorrow because of the swim meet I need to run.
Found out yesterday that I'm a Wiener, oops I mean Winner! On my friend, Jen's, site I was the 500th comment. Not surprising by how much I talk! ha ha How she knows this I have no idea? Pretty cool though! She can whip out socks like nobodies business! She's posting a new one every couple of days its amazing! There not just plain socks either, they're beautiful works of art! So cool. I've been weeks on one! I now proclaim her the "Sock Queen!"
Since I didn't do much yesterday my laundry is overflowing, ironing board is yelling at me so gotta get busy.

He was so excited when he finished even the timers were excited and cheering for him! Butterfly wasn't so great but stayed up with the pack. The shave ice helped to cheer him up from that race! Afterwards we packed up and went to McDonald's for lunch. Whoowee are we tired! Get to do it all again tomorrow!

My light blue crocs came today too. I love them soo much, they're so comfy. I also got a flamingo and cream chihuahua jibbitz too. It'd be so cool to have all the colors!
Found out this evening that my friend in the Knotty Knitter group gets to have her surgery next week instead of September. Thank God, she'll be able to start feeling better sooner. She has to have 5 surgeries at one time. Lord be with her and the doctors.
Going to go bathe and work on my sock and of course watch "So You Think You Can Dance?" Hopefully my mouth won't hurt so bad tomorrow. Tomorrow, tomorrow, there's always tomorrow............Tootles!
Jimmy had a great swim day. First the private with his coach, then played (in the pool) at his friends house, then swim team practice. He's my little fish...almost 5 hours of swimming! He was quite tired last night. I came home and did my laps too, so Coach Falicia will be proud of me. I even practiced a new technique that the coach showed Jimmy for the breast stroke, which worked quite well. My darlin' hubby made me grilled cheese for dinner because my mouth was so sore and then ice cream for dessert. The ice cream felt so good on my cheeks.
Got a bath, watched a little tv (knit time) and went to bed.
My friend Jen's husband got to come home from the hospital. Yeah! Now they'll be able to get some rest. Prayers and thoughts are with them.
Today (Wednesday) is my long time friend Erica's birthday...Happy Birthday Erica!
Yeah, I don't have to rush off for any appts. today. Don't have to go anywhere until swim team practice this evening. Of course there is laundery to do and strawberries to jam!:) Have a great day!

Been ironing for over an hour and now I'm going to go cool off in the pool. Hope your all having a great weekend and especially Melissa who's birthday is today....Happy Birthday! I did cast on a pair of socks with Panda Cotton (Tulip) last night using the Summer Dream pattern. This yarn is real stringy though and gets caught, you really have to pay attention that the whole lot of it is on the needle. I don't know if I care for it all that well. I do like the squishy softness though and how it feels. It also is using 5 dpn's! I've only ever used four! So something new again....I know, I know I'm supposed to be trying toe up but wanted to wait for my knitpicks order so I can do it like Jen's! Plus if I need help I can email her on it:)!
Still thinking and praying for you Jen & Jen's hubby! Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, its so quiet at my house right now that its weird! My son is with his best buddy going to a waterpark and then to a pizza place that is sort of like Chuck E. Cheese. They've been gone since 10:30 this morning...I hope the mom is ok with two excited little boys!:) I went and returned some pants that I got for my birthday and got a different pair. Low in behold three shirts jumped onto the counter to get paid for too. I just don't know how that happened but their really pretty and match things I have! Came home started the laundery, ate lunch and took a brief siesta. So relaxing....hey perfect time for some knittin'!
My friend, Jen's husbands surgery was a success. Thank God! Still praying for his recovery and that he'll be back on his feet soon and feeling better. They were able to cut out all the cancer which is totally awesome. Why is everyone getting this horrible disease? I just don't understand it. Today is the anniversary (8 months) that Andrea (my bff) was taken from us. She will never be forgotten. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of her and miss her. Words have left me...

I have an appointment with my endocrinologist today and hopefully all will go well there. Afterwards my son and I are going shopping for his best friends birthday gift. We've been looking but haven't found what were looking for. His birthday is tomorrow on Friday the 13th. They are going to go to Drytown Waterpark and then to Vince's Pizza for lunch. I'm sure they'll talk his mom into playtime at her house too. But by that time she'll probably be worn out! They're such good friends. His mom and I have also became real close this year. She has been an amazing friend to me, especially when I lost my best friend of 20yrs. this past November. She's been there for me to talk, cry, and give hugs to. Last night at swim team practice she brought me a birthday present. It's the cutest bag and soooo perfect for knitting stuff! Look at all the pockets! What's really cool is it came with gardening stuff, which is an extra bonus!
Later today when I get home from all my errands and running around, I'm going to make some yummy jam. My hubby got me some strawberries, apricots, plums, peaches, and nectarines at the farmers market by his work. Going to at least make strawberry jam today and maybe some apricot jam too if I have time before swim practice. TTFN!

Ugh! It's been a crappy day so far. Woke up to find little piss ants all over my carpet of my room and into my bedroom and into my closet...aaaaaaaah! My old dog started having a seizure but thankfully I calmed him and it stopped. Went to Walmart to shop, got home and bringing in the stuff and notice my 2 ice creams were not there. Had to go back to Walmart to get them and come back home. Went to put my clothes in the dryer and the water was not doing anything in the washer, had to go check the well and pressure pump, smacked it and it started to work. Came in the house and broke my dang nail. I can't remember what else happened but I have such a headache! I'm going to take some advil and lay down in a dark, cool room with my nice soft blankie! Boy was that a big whine! This is only half my day....what will come....
Real worried about my friend, Jen's, husband who is having colon surgery today. I've been praying for his doctors and that he is doing well. My friend, Darcy, who's having a lot of medical problems and in need of a surgery, is also weighing on my mind. I'm also worried about Falicia who's white blood count is low. I've been doing a lot of talking to the man upstairs today and know He will answer and take care of it all.
More to come later....or maybe not!

I had a really great day. My dad brings my son a donut every Sunday and yesterday he brought me a huge cinnamon roll. He's so sweet! Later my darlin' hubby and son took me to Build a Bear and I made a cute monkey with pink leopard satin pjs. Very fun, I'll have to find me some of those pjs!
My knittin' group got together at Starbucks...mmm frappacino! I was working on my son's 2nd sock. Jo was working on her mile long Dr. Who scarf, Diane and Ann had their gorgeous mystery stoles there, Dolores was working on her flowers for a poncho, Ann was showing Mindy how to spin, Jaimie working on his Honda scarf and brought everybody a shawl pin he'd made (so nice), Mercedes and Hannah were working on wrist warmers but got bored and went to the mall! I also met Darcy for the first time, such a sweet lady and has my prayers sent her way. She was working on two socks on one circular needle...What a great group!
I came home and ordered some alpaca lace weight yarn for an invisibility shawl, four skeins of sock yarn and of course another sock book, hey it was 40% off :)! Can't wait for the mailman to deliver!
I'm worn out from the long weekend. Going to do laundery and relax today. I really need to start planning next years school lessons. Nah, I'd rather knit or read Back on Blossom Street! If I'm not knitting I'm reading about it! Tootles!

I'm so excited! I just finished my first double pointed needle sock! These are for my son and can't wait for him to wake up so he can try it on! Its made with Regia bamboo and is so soft...wonder if it'd fit me :)! Also you'll notice I've finally figured out how to do the picture thing! My knitting group is getting together today at Starbucks...mmm frappacino, let you know what goes on with that later. Gonna go rest on the couch and work on the other sock!

My dad and husband went and picked up a lot of firewood for winter. How I look forward to that especially when were having 114 degree weather. A nice fire in the fireplace, southern pecan pie candle burning and some nice wool being knitted in my hands. Sigh....In reality air conditioner on, just got done swimming laps and ready for more dump cake! And don't forget the knitting...son's sock, almost to the toe!
Last night we watched "Man of the Year" with Robin Williams. It was really good. Loved the part where he says to enhance a boob job with dog squeeky toys. Guess you'd get more bang for your buck!
Tonight is the Daytona Nascar race...go Newman....go J. Gordon...go Jr. Whoo hoo!
