It just struck me...

...that most of my recent posts have been written on Thursdays! This could be a good thing, I may keep it up. I tend to be the type of person who does well with schedules and lists. I am a planner. So if Thursday is my blogging day, so be it! From now on I will make an attempt to blog on Thursdays!

I know, I'm weird.

As for the rest of life, the morning sickness is still here but not as bad. I've only been puking 1-2 times a day rather than 10-15! The queasiness is just as strong and over powering though.
The kids and I have been dealing with head colds for the last week. Not fun, except for the fact that the stuffy nose protected me from the 'smell-stuff-and-puke reflex'!

On the knitted side of things, the Portland sweater has come to a stand still. All of a sudden (1/4 of the way up the first sleeve) I though to myself "hmm, I wonder if the fact that I am not using the recommended yarn or needle size will effect the outcome of this sweater?" I am now sure that it will, and need to find some more info on this subject.
I'm not too worried about it though, because something else happened this week! I remembered that Christmas is coming! What on earth am I doing attempting my first sweater when I have presents to knit!!!??!!! So I started my list of who needs what, trying to remind myself that I have little time and even little-er energy lately. Presents will be small this year, like one skein or less kinda small, both for the formentioned time and energy issues, and due to lack of yarn money. But not all is lost! Thanks to Steve and my Christmas present last year ( upright kitchen aid mixer) the annual baked gifts should be in plentiful supply!

Well, the kids have had long enough of a break from school while I have been typing this, so I must go for now. We must get back to 'Numbers with Button Bear'; but if all goes well, I'll be back on Thursday! :)

Secret Pal!...Where are you???

So, I still don't know who my pal was for sp8 and it is driving me nuts! I don't even care if she sends me anything, I just want to know who she is! After all, I think that is the funnest part of the secret pal process: getting clues to a persons identity over the course of a few months, and then finding out who they are, and if your guesses about that person were correct! :)
Hopefully she will reveal herself soon! She does deserve a special thank you on her blog from me for introducing me to the drop spindle (which I still have yet to blog about, ...maybe tomorrow, if I'm feeling up to it)!

And I'm still out of batteries, so still no pictures of current knitting. But for the sake of putting any old picture up, here are some pics from C&M's wedding. I hated the fact that I was the one short/fat bridesmaide! oh well....
