My mind has been all over the place today...

I stayed up to watch Rutgers win last night. I was so wound up by the time the game ended that I couldn’t sleep. So I’m tired but still really excited about the win. I guess I can say I’m really lucky that I was able to get to one game this year before tickets started selling for $500 on eBay.

R! U!!!

I got a text message from Mr. Big yesterday. I didn’t answer it. It was nonsensical and meant to make me laugh and all it did was annoy me.

I keep thinking I need to buy more yarn this weekend. There is something seriously wrong with me. So I’m going to buy a knitting book or two and then go to the mall and buy some new clothes because I desperately need some alternate outfits for work. It won’t solve the yarn craving but I was just at Rhinebeck for craps sake and there is NO reason to buy more yarn!!

Except for that I started knitting Viveka and I LOVE the way it’s coming out, but the yarn I’m using is making it so damn heavy. I honestly think that if I continue using this yarn I won’t need a down coat when the snow flies. Just this sweater. So I need something that’s a little more lofty. Not quite as dense as the wool I’m using now. So I may go get some yarn. Maybe I can find some Cashmerino on sale somewhere…

I sat up in bed this morning, rubbed the sleep out of my eyes, said good morning to Katie who was laying at the foot of the bed and then watched as she leapt, from a lying position, into this acrobatic crazy flippy chasing her tail in a full twisting somersault thing and raced out of the bedroom. She cracked me the hell up.

I've been thinking a lot about Thanksgiving. What I'd really like to do is go to NC, but I don't have the time to take off. Which means driving down there (11 hours) on Wednesday night and then having to come back on Saturday or Sunday. I haven't discussed the holiday with my brother and SIL at all, so I don't know if they're having Thanksgiving at their house or not. So I don't know what to do about the whole thing. I suppose I should get the smallest turkey I can find, just in case.

See - told ya.

I'm using the excuse of recent surgery to STAY HOME for the holiday, and we are having ham!! LOL
Come on over!! Spiral ham, fresh pineapple, butternut squash, beans, spuds... mmmmmmmm
Sean and Jess will be over after going to her family's do- so I will make S's fave desserts :) -eggnog bread and Italian cookies.

And on a similiar note of "bad blast from the past", Sean's sperm donor called him last week after 16 YEARS of no contact at all- ugh!
He was going on about me not wanting Sean to talk to him, and Sean said "HELLO, I am 30 years old, so DUH!"

WTF is up with these guys???

hugs to you, sweetie, be in touch!!
