Ohhh, and there is possibly another move in our future. Our latest neighbors (across the way) had a domestic disturbance the other night which the hubs bore witness to so he called the cops. They came, broke the apt. door down BUT they left that sob in his apt. I guess there wasn't enough evidence? Yet a few hours later (this transpired at about 4:30 in the morning on Monday!), the girl knocked on our door and showed the hubs the big bruise on her frickin' head!! Sigh. The perp has been given an eviction notice and last night he was talking about having our tires slashed and car windows broken because he figures it was us that called the cops on him. Just GREAT. :P This lowlife has also threatened our landlord and his family. The cops can't really do anything. They patrolled heavily last night. The
lowlife's sister said he isn't a threat though (thank goodness) but still. The hubs wants OUT.
On the knitting front, I have completed another shawl (that makes 3). Though the pictures I have do not do any of them justice. Here's one of two of them:
They have all officially chrysalized so now we just have to wait for them to pop out as butterflies! The stuff below them is a mixture of their food and poop (I'm guessing!)
On Friday, we celebrated my birthday at school. I wore this crown (made by my most amazing assistant ever!)
I received a ton of cards from my students,
They "surprised" me with a party too. We had a pinata which was fitting since my actual birthday is Cinco de Mayo! They really surprised me with a dance. It was so special.
I got a few presents from them too some of which have yet to be photographed. Here's one of them, an air freshener. I also received a dress, a traditional Mexican outfit handsewn by my assistant!, hand soap, a candle, a bracelet, and some gift cards. The hubs got me an amazing gift too which was yet to be photographed. My actual birthday was spent at my friend's house who was throwing a party to commemorate her daughter's first communion. Fun times.
