It\’s my world, join me, won\’t you?

A little bit about knitting, a little bit about my family and anything else I feel like writing about :-)

Wow, can this year get any worse?

Just when I thought all our bad luck was over…..2006 has struck once again!  Yesterday, while driving back from lunch with my sister-in-law, my daughter just falling asleep in her car seat…WHAM!!  I was hit by another car from behind and it scared the SH** out of me!!  Thank goodness DD and I are alright–I’m just super-sore today, DD seems to be without even that, so I am very thankful about that, the SUV, however….Well, that’s a different story.  I got an estimate on the work today and it will be about $4,000.  At first glance, I thought I just needed a new bumper, but she knocked the muffler up under the car and damage that whole system (catalytic converter, etc) as well as damage to the frame and back door and bumper.  Of course all of this had to happen while hubby was away on business in Atlanta and I had to take care of all of this by myself, but that’s just par for the course, isn’t it?  I’m grateful that my SIL brought some dinner over last night for us and checked in on us today, and that I had a good friend to watch DD while I went to the body shop for an estimate.  As they say, when it rains, it pours!

My apologies once again to my SP9 buddy for not posting pics yet–it has been super-crazy here with DH away and a cranky, sick toddler to boot.  Sorry, but I’m not giving in yet–I will post them!

SP9 package received!!

Wow, am I a lucky girl or what?  This has been quite a week for packages!  A friend of mine gave me the Knitting Pattern calendar for my birthday (which was yesterday), I got my creative memories sidekick to attach to the side of my scrapbooking table from ebay AND, the piece de resistance (sorry, I forgot how to spell French, lol) was my SP9 package from my buddy.  It was chock full of goodies.  The theme was pink and purple.  It contained cashmere socks, a hank of Marl La from Classic Elite yarns in a gorgeous multi-pink, purple and yellow colorway, a hank of  Gjestal naturgarn in a lovely shade of purple, AND an adorable pink and purple cupcake hat for my DD complete with sequins to add on for “sprinkles”.  Let me tell you, my daughter has not stopped playing with the hat.  She puts it on herself, her bear, me and when she can get away with it, her father, lol.  Thanks buddy!  You sure made a big hit over here!!!  (The package actually came a few days ago, but I have been having technical difficulties over here, so I apologize for the delay.  It’s certainly not due to a lack of appreciation!  As you can see, I am still photoless, and will post a picture of my goodies when I can.)
