i got the sweater frogged, rewound into a center pull ball, and cast on for the ribbing, knit most of one row, and that was it. i got sent to mail >:(.

However, a coworker told me there's an auction on sunday where they have tons of KNITTING SUPPLIES! i am so there! sean's cta is picking him up at 10 which is when the viewing starts, so i may be auctioning sunday. will have to see what they have.

mark is threatening me if i don't finish his mom's afghan soon, so i'm gonna work on that this weekend too. wheee!

Sean's CTA came by tonight, and we set up times for tomorrow and sunday. he taught sean to play stratego, and beat the pants off sean. sean admitted to him that he tends to be a sore loser, and Dennis told him that was one thing they'd work on. We had my version of sunshine chicken for supper (brown chicken breasts, remove, sautee carrots and peppers (red of course), add rice, coat with oil, add chicken stock to cover, add chicken breasts, and place in oven and bake til rice is tender and chicken is done. waaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyy too frigging easy, and tasty too. boys both scarfed on it! mark found my usb cord, but now we can't find the software. sigh. had a chat with sean tonight about the parent teacher conference, and lying, and why the truth is so much easier. i think we both drilled it into his head that he needs to do what the teacher tells him to (he's been telling her that he doesn't have to do what she tells him to (she's young and pretty, and considering his biological father's attitude toward pretty young women, i'm not surprised he doesn't see her as an authority figure . we're working on that as well).

Book game. i got this from Rose, who got it from little turtle knits (sorry, i can't remember your name, lol!)

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the "coolest" book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

Book A Bend in the Road, by Nicholas Sparks (steph is on a nicholas sparks tear, and i have to agree, this stuff is good, soothing romance stuff) "Why not?" (now, isn't that inspiring!)

You might be a redneck if you've been married three times and still have the same in-laws.

Pattern of the Day: Kid's Triangle Pullover. this looks intriguing, but the neck looks so huge! wonder if that's adaptable. would be a fun way to use up scraps.
