Definitely NOT

I've heard vague rumblings that I haven't been blogging enough recently. One commenter even went so far as to write out my excuses:

"You are tired.
You are bored.
You are sick of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas items.
You are pregnant.
You have a garter stitch fever.
You have a mid-life crisis or itch.
Do you need to teach again?
Your stomach distress is still around?
You are hiding?"

Wait. WHAAAAAAT?!?!?!?!??! I didn't see that "pregnant" comment before. Now really. I have 4 kids and know how much they cost. They are all out of diapers and reasonably self-sufficient. Why would you think I'd want to start over again? Nope. Definitely NOT that one.

I'm always tired, bored, and sick of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas items. (Not really Thanksgiving since we almost completely skip that holiday at the store.) My stomach is doing okay and, as has already been addressed, I'm definitely not pregnant. I don't have a mid-life crisis or need to teach. Hiding would be fine except I haven't done anything (lately) that I need to hide from.

The "garter stitch fever" guess is the closest, but not quite.

I guess I'm just boring.

I'm knitting on my VeryBig project, but being a stealth project I can't blog about it.

Nothing much else is going on. DS#2 isn't really doing anything crazy. DD#2 just started basketball practice tonight, so there might be news on that later.

Two nights ago I realized that if I start a sock, then I'll have something to blog about.

So....I wound my yarn.

Yarn is from Ellen's 1/2 pint farm that I got at MDSW08. Then I started a sock.

The pattern is Spring Forward from Knitty. I'm loving it so far. Very easy pattern that makes a very pretty pattern. (I know you can't really see it, but check out the pattern link--it's really cool.)

As I was looking through photos, I realized that I never blogged about my recent surprise package. Look, circular needles in really small sizes! And a chocolate bar!

It came right during my "shoot me now" stomach virus, so I don't think I ever ate that chocolate.

Hmm.....gotta go!! Thanks so much and.....I forgive you for that pregnant comment!

aha...there she is... :o)
Love that sock, have already printed it out and it's laying somewhere...yep on the attic of doom I guess.
I'm still knitting the celtic cable neckwarmers...the 6th on the needles now so no time to blog. ;o) Isn't that a good excuse???

Take care.
Valeria. :o)

hahaha that pregnant comment got you back to blogging. Made me giggle. You know I've got 4 also and after watching enough large families on tv I've got to say that we're definately slackers. lol. Can you imagine trying to agree with your hubby on all those names? I had enough trouble agreeing on 4 first and 4 middle names. And I can't ever remember the kid's name I'm talking to ... as I stumble through 2 or 3 to get to the right one.
