Could I be any Lazier?

Well, it has been a glorious day in my life. I have not left the bed except to obtain food, beverages and to potty. I have watched hours of landscaping programs on HGTV, a cake decorating show on the Food Channel, two episodes of Law & Order and will soon view Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy. His Honor just brought me a huge pile of food from PF Chang's and I am going to dive in, then go straight to bed. Tomorrow I will worry about my diet-- while I get a pedicure and then eat lunch with a good friend from Law School. I have been reading blogs and knitting on a semi-awful novelty yarn shawl. Just the basic garter stitch triangle, but in two crazy white yarns. More, with pictures, another day!!

Got to get Happy

I have made a committed committment to be HAPPY. There is no reason in the world that I should be anything other than joyous! So, I am going to post only happy stuff. I would post some pictures, but don't have the camera right here, so maybe tomorrow-- or I mean on Monday. We leave in the morning at 4 dark o'clock for Chicago. I have never been there. I can't wait. I think that I will take my Feather and Fan shawl, but won't be sad if I don't get anything done on it. Soooooooo..... more on Monday!!

Somehow the Summer got away from me.

Well, it is now fall. I didn't write all summer. I am going to do better. I knit lots of stuff this summer that did not fit. In keeping with my pattern, I knit two giant sweaters. I did knit a wierd little cotton tape sweater from a Rowan book. It's ok, but I haven't brought myself to wear it. Maybe I will put it on and put a picture up soon. I just started the third ball of Kid Silk oon my Kiri. I think that I will finish it soon. I should be done, but made lots of mistakes in the first third and ripppppped the whole thing out and started over. I'm pretty proud that I didn't abandon the project. I am really good at abandonment.

In other news, we found out today that my oldest boy got a 31 on the ACT!! I am the mother of at least one smart boy-- although we think that if he uses his brain, the second son is actually smarter. Son 2, age 14, is currently crabby, having broken his wrist during a roll down a hill. It is a bad break and will require at least 4 months in a cast. He is probably going to miss tennis season this year. He also has the singular ability to keep our whole household in an uproar. If he isn't happy, none one is happy.

My oldest is thinking about going to the University of Texas. The debate department is interested in him and has made a scholarship offer. Not great, but not bad. It's not like he is a football player. Academics are so under-rated by colleges that it is sad. Anyway, we are embarking on the college exploration. I hope that the journey is both fun and fruitful.
