Things to do...places to go...people to see...

I'm getting the itch again to break out the yarn in serious fashion. I started looking at yarns on eBay yesterday and almost purchased some. I was only stopped by the email from our bank loan officer attempting to finalize our home remodel loan. So...this weekend is going to be some serious stash-busting. I still have that alpaca/angora yarn I got locally. And I have some silk yarn I got with a gift certificate from my secret pal during the last round (I think it was SP7). It's a real pretty deep red color. I think it might turn itself into a shawl of some sort.

Of course, all this crocheting or knitting will have to wait until I get all the breakables in my home packed up...and get the second floor cleaned out for demolition day. It's going to be weird taking down the crib...but that's a post for another day (most likely after the emotional breakdown I'm going to have. I mean, I've GOT to share all the ugly details, right?).

So I'm going to be turbo cleaning woman. I just hope I don't pass out in this heat. Have you noticed that it's hot? No...not hot....HOT.

And let's see...weekend plans are pretty full this weekend...

Saturday...
Secret shop for lunch.
Visit JoAnn's (hey...I've got a 40% off coupon or two I can still use!).
Doggy transport.
Weed the flower gardens.
BBQ with my family and maybe cool off in our little pool.

Sunday...
Visit my friend Mary and her family. (please, please, please say a prayer for me that I don't fall apart when I meet her new baby boy cause that would really suck and make us all uncomfortable, I'm sure)
Weed the veggie garden.

Aside from the two potential breakdowns, I think it's a pretty good plan for a weekend. But I REALLY want to crochet. I know I'll get some done while Steve drives me all the places we're going to go. He loves to drive and I love to crochet...so it's perfect bliss. Well...not perfect...but close.

Now if I could just find some time to spend with my sewing machine...

Hey, a girl can dream, can't she?

Kate, would it help if I put Ray in a pink dress on Sunday? (That's a joke, btw.)

I will send anti-breakdown vibes your way. Please know, however, that I am a rather emotional gal who has been prone to openly weeping in Target and McDonalds and other places, so if you are teary it's all good, and I will likely join you. Reminder to self: waterproof mascara.

Really though, Gabi and Sam will probably be clowning so much that we will have no choice but to laugh.

I am glad you and Mary are getting together. Sending lots of no breakdown vibes your way.

I'll be praying for you this weekend. I know how hard it is to hold a new baby...

And I am with you on the HOT issue. IT IS HOT HERE!!!

You know, i should've thought of it while you were here -- we could break out our yarn stashes together and TRADE!
Like kids with pokemon cards, or whatever the current rage is...

I never did grow up, i hope that's ok...

Hey, what about a yarn exchange like the sock dealie? I'd be into that for sure...

Poke. Poke. Poke.
