Happy Birthday to Me!


Happy Birthday to Me! I turned 23! (I wish!)

I forgot to take my camera to work. Every staff member gets a cake on his/her birthday. Of course, Tim and I went to the Superstore together to get lunch and pick up my cake. He told me to go get the pop while he picked out a cake. I knew he'd have something smart written on it. I figured, "Happy 40th Birthday" or maybe, "Happy 43rd Birthday". (At the Big Boss Lady's last birthday we switched her age on the cake from 52 to 25.) Anyways, he had her write, "Old Bag" on it and proceeded to show everyone and tell them I was 40!!! Sometimes I could kill him, but he's also the assistant manager, so that wouldn't be a good idea. I am really 34 today, and I made sure I corrected it whenever I heard him saying anything otherwise!

I made a hat in about a size 2 for the Dulaan Project out of some leftover yarn I had stashed away. I have a grocery shopping bag half full with yarn to make some more hats and mittens. Last year I had a lot more finished for Dulaan at this point, but we didn't have the yarn shop in the store this time last year, either. I have two completed items to send so far. I'm not putting a number on how many I want to send this year. I hope to have at least ten or so. Whatever I can get finished my the first of May will have to do. I want to mail it off by then to make sure they get it in time.

Tonight I think I will just work on the Eskimo scarf for a friend of mine who has been patiently waiting for it. I also may work on the surprise I started before the Olympics and never finished.

Must get going and clean the boys up. They have spaghetti for supper and of course ice cream cake for dessert! Look how Darren has the neck of his sweater stretched out and soaked from chewing on it! And the sleeve! I hate it when he does that!


Happy knitting!

Happy Birthday!! I will say life gets better the older we get and the empty nest syndrome is a myth as far as I can see. But you have a way to go yet!
Tim is quite the tease I gather!
