Here I Go Again!

It's been a looong while since I blogged, but I need too. Even if this is my very own on-line journal, I need to purge some thoughts and feelings. It's summer break w/ the munchkin and I can't believe how she is growing up. Scares me. Pure innocence and freedom. I watch t.v. and see all of the horrible things that happen and I'm so scared for her. We walk out our door and I am in protection mode. Paranoid much?

Next topic, I have to have more patience w/ people. I do not deal well with the martyr syndrome. Poor me. A constant drone of getting a raw deal really gets on my nerves. I'm not talking about people w/ real struggles. Let's give THEM our time.

I have my own faults, plenty. I think of them every day. It is a constant struggle for me to be patient w/ people I don't really like. I don't know how to grin and bear it. I'm moody, and a whole list of other things. However, I don't feel sorry for myself and have never been that type of person. So that is hard for me to listen to on a constant basis from people who really shouldn't. There! Done w/ that for the moment.

The Owl Has Arrived

Gasp! I finally got my hands on my package from our headmistress Miss Wartbobble. The owl is very hungry, tired and upset. He's been waiting on me since Saturday. Poor thing. I was out of town and couldn't get to the post office in time from work to pick him up. I had to feed him a few mice and give him a warm spot in the Christmas tree to settle down for the evening. I think he feels better now.

Now for the good stuff:

A gorgeous lined in Slytherin green purse - possibly a Booga Bag? Love it. I've already dumped my things into it.

Two patterns: Zig Zag Socks and a French Market Bag that I've been jonesing for in my queue

Regia sock yarn in awesome warm colors

Lambs Pride Wool/Mohair blend that is screaming "make me into a hat" It would match my coat perfectly'!Sock needles - yay - metal, size 2s - I have been dying to use metal dpn sock needles!

Straight needles - 2.75 and 3.25 - I'm such a lucky girl!

Twizzlers - my two year old and I have already been into them

M&M Premiums - 3 layers of milk, white and dark chocolate - need I say more?

Soak - scented and unscented fiber wash - I currently have nothing

I bow to you Headmistress! My package was perfect! Thank you so much!

Halloween '08

We took the little one out this year for her first trick-or-treat. She was very shy, but didn't mind the candy. Everything was great until she saw a kid dressed up as the Scream guy. Game over after that. We had already trick-or-treated a plenty at that point anyway. She had a very good fall season, lots of pumpkin patches, hay rides, and apple cider. Very good memories were made for our fairy princess!
