I got it done!

My knitting Olympic project is done. I wasn't sure if I would be able to get it done, but, it is. I just can't get the picture up. hmph! Darn it. I would like to show every one, but I've been trying to up load pictures of my Valentines package from my secret pal as well. Haven't been able to do that either. Darn, darn, darn. Yvonne told me to e-mail them to her, couldn't do that either. I AM NOT computer illiterate! Its the computer itself, although, I have issues with it, or, it has issues with me. Anyway, my secret pal sent a beautiful scarf, a pretty card, a CD full of romantic music for me and Tom, and a Mickey Mouse mug full of yummy candy!! :-) Thank You secret pal!

It has been a loooooooong week

Happy Dance!

its over!, its over! The week from hell is over. Would you like to know how my week has been? Sunday: Tony fed my sisters fish.....The whole tub. Monday: Tony fed the fish......... Half a cup of hot chocolate. Tuesday: Tony fed the fish........ez-mac uncooked noodles, and a single-serve box of cheerioes. Wenesday: Tony fed the fish........a oatmeal-chocolate chip cookie, oh, and he took them for a ride in Matthew's small ride on toy.........Without water.......Oh, but with rocks. Two of them didn't do so well on their senic ride, they've went on to fishy heaven ( the royal flush ). Thursday: work. Friday: Migraine. Oh, and on top all of this, both kids had a very contagious virus RSV. Miserable, Cranky ( thank god I have experience with the cranky knitters ), and just plain Nasty children, poor things, I felt so bad for Matthew, 103.5 degree temp for 5 days. ER visit, Drs visits, oh, and the Dr told me that the medicine could make them meaner than godzilla. Where has he been? I told him I could handle that, I mean, been there done that, this week. WELL, boy was I wrong! Tony was fine with it. Matthew on the other hand, long about 4 in the afternoon, would start to cry, and not stop til he was asleep. Thank God thats over, only four days for the medicine from heck.
Knitting Olympics? Whats is that? I think I'm coming in dead last.

It didn't snow here Hmph!

*******************I JUST LOVE SNOW***************************** I wanted it, it should have come! I need to take a road trip, Philly, NYC anywhere with snow. All I needed to clean off my windshield was a feather duster! Oh well, I must remember that others do not have the advantages I have; a home, I have heat and can look out side and admire mother nature. Others are not so fortunate. I must start knitting my patches for blankets for the needy ( after the Olympics ). On to other subjects.
Matthew is still very sick, we had him to the emergency room last night, our doctor was so booked and overbooked, they had us go to the ER. Matthew had a chest x-ray, turned out to be clear. Sent us home, told us to go to the Dr.'s tomorrow. What a waste. He has been spiking 103.5 temps for days now; as soon as his meds wear off here it comes again. Up half the night, won't eat or drink like he normally does. Poor baby.
Tony helped me mop the floor yesterday! yup, he went downstairs while we were getting them to bed, and got my mop out of the bucket and dragged it through the house ( my fault, should have dumped it ). Water everywhere ( it even seeped through the floor boards to the basement; found that when I went to switch loads ).
Have got a lot more done than I thought I would, I even got my knitting project well underway!

I'm frantically search ing the web for patterns I like have found three HMMMMM, decisions, decisions. Well have printed 2 successfully cant get the other one to print no matter what I try. Rats! Too bad, gotta go for now. Good luck all. Much love to all.

I signed up for the Olympics!

I'm nuts! I have no time to do this, two kids, one hubby (that's three kids!) ;-) one dog, one cat, seven fish. A full time job and I entered in the Knitting Olympics. I think I entered at any rate, and I just got my entry in by 11:30ish. Not sure exactly what I want to do, but I found a pattern I think I like: The Big Snuggly at It didn't look very hard, but for me I think it would be a challenge. I need to find out if my secret pal, or my secret spoiler has entered. I detect two e-mails coming up this evening. If anyone has any better ideas for my entry please get in touch quick. I was up until 2:00 pm last night looking for the perfect thing for me. I found a couple of things but was unsure of the patterns so I bypassed them (chicken). Time to go for now hope to hear from everyone soon.

It's a beautiful day!

Well, I've had to take today off, I was sick, am feeling better now, still not 100% but ok. scuse me gotta get the baby, I'm back, so is Matthew. Sitting here watching Oprah, typing along one handed (baby is in the other). ((rats, can't get my enter button to go to the next paragraph)) Anthony just made me terribly angry; 1. He emptied his toy box on his floor. 2. He spilled the babies food all over the floor. 3. He fed the fish, a half cup of hot chocolate ( yum! )((one of the fish wasn't doing so well in the first place, now he's doing very badly, poor thing. 4. I just caught him beating his toys with a piece of his old toddler bed! ( We were given a race car bed and swiched them, I took the old one apart this morning and the pieces didn't make it to the garage) Pieces were flying, wait 'til daddy gets home. Can I get Calgon take me away? I would have to go and buy some first. I sure don't have time for that! Anyway, I still need to decide if and what I may do for the stiching Olympics. I'm not sure what to do for it and I was told today (thanks Yvonne!) that I must let her know by midnight tonight.

Babysitting my nephew tonight

My day has been good, it is now 8:30 pm & Matthew is being a stinker. He has been asleep 3 times but wakes up every time, its because we are not at home. Tom took Anthony home about 2 hours ago so his bedtime would be the same. Matt is cranky.

Earlier, I had so much to say, but now I can think of nothing. This sucks.

I am supposed to take my nephew to gymnastics tomorrow, wait for him to be done, then take him home. This would mean I would be unable to go to my Stitch and bitch. Decisions, decisions. My sister said just don't say anything to him and not take him. I don't think that's very fair to him. I could drop him off and she could pick him up. We will have to talk when she gets home ( she's taking a final exam tonight).

It was a very good day. Chilly, sunny, just could not have been a prettier day. We played hookie for our first bus run, as the kids were up a lot during the night Matt's still teething. We went to McD's for breakfast, went to work, put smiley borders up all through the bus and generally had a good time! The kids loved them, my kids and the "bus kids" everyone was very good for a change, only had to yell about a dozen times. (that's a very good day, believe me!).

We came home, and got the Jeep out and played til daddy got home, he took over outside, and I came in to cook.

Worked on my scarf a little today (very little). ;-)

Here's hoping everyone else had just as good a day as we had.

Live well Laugh often Love much

Love Lynda, Tony, and Matt.

It's too early to be up!

It's 7:12 AM on Sunday morning, I'm up and I don't want to be!

I just took the pictures of the stuff my Secret pal sent me, and I'm going to attempt to get them on my blog! ( ambitious this morning aren't I?).

Cannot find the cord for the digital camera; the one that gets the picture from my camera to the computer. Tom just used it last night but I cant find it. He's asleep so I must wait. Oh well, on to other things.

Would you like to hear what we did on our big night out? We went to The Hilltop , in Rochester; ate dinner had one drink apiece and went home. We were in bed by 8:30 pm. Nothing else happened either! Boring!!!!!!!! His excuse? He was doing a Jeep thingy the next morning! Oh, and I had school! Ahhhhhhh who cares. On to knitting!

I'm still working on my scarves, I just can't seem to get back into the groove since Christmas. I would like to have a pattern for a plain, plain sweater for me. I saw a sweater style? That I think I liked, but I didn't like the cables in it. ( I don't think I know what I want ;-) ).

I don't know if I was a bad girl or not; I was showing a friend how to get her own blog ( like I'm some expert or something!) and I showed her my secret pals blog, and I got to see her picture! I didn't know I could do that. I think that because we were on her computer and using her e-mail address, thats why I could see her picture. I've never been able to see it on mine.

I wish my secret pal would update a little more often, there are only 2 real posts to her blog, and one is the questionnaire that we all did. Well, she should get her first package about tomorrow, maybe she will update then. I hope she's not like me and needs a lot of help ( thank you Yvonne!). I have the greatest friends in the world! You know, I didn't have many in school, but as an adult, I have been truly blessed with GREAT FRIENDS.

On that little note, bye for now.

Remember, Live well Laugh often Love much
