I guess all it took was the lenten season for me to get my butt in gear with those current works in progress! I finished the second habitat hat on Friday!
There is still major drama going on with my brother and his family. We don't get to see the monkey as much as we had been because of it. Hence the lack of pictures. The time that we do get to see her, isn't to ourselves either and because of that, she's different. She's not the monkey that we know. The monkey we know is goofy and in my eyes comfortable in her 3 year old skin. The monkey we're forced to see is doubtful, whiney, and needy. Sigh..
I haven't been blogging as much this week because the hubby and I have been busy trying to work on our insurance situation. I think it is safe to say that we just might be okay and won't be living in anymore debt than we already have!
I have been reading Eat, Pray, Love and I really like it. The hubby admitted to reading a bit of it over my shoulder a couple of times and he likes it too. I told him I'll have to purchase him a copy of our own because he doesn't read as fast as I do! I'm just a few pages shy of completing Book 1.
Did I tell you that we ended up watching Time Traveler's Wife after all? I absolutely loved the movie! Did you know that Brad Pitt was actually one of the executive producers? I've only read about the first 20 or so pages and I can say that the movie actually begins the way the book does. I can't wait to read it now but I know it's got a long wait!
Some exciting knitter news..this Thursday Stitches West begins and the hubby and I will be going to the marketplace for the first time ever! We're excited. I just purchased tickets for us to go on two days. We're gonna go on Friday and Sunday. I read somewhere that Sunday is the best day to go for all the deals. I didn't want to wait until the last day to go though so that is why we're going twice. I hope we're not disappointed! Oh my word. I started clicking around the Stitches site and there's a schematic (and a list) of all the booths. It is going to be a dangerous place. Let's see how bad (or good..depends on how you see things!) I do with purchases. I don't plan on really buying anything but you never know what I might find. There isn't anything that I can think of (yarn-wise) that I would need. I can think of a lot of accessories and knick-knacky stuff though. Maybe patterns but we'll see. There will be a couple of button booths and the hubby is obsessed with buttons. The great thing is that parking is FREE!!!!!!!
