There’s nothing like a visit from the electrician to smack you down a notch. Actually, several notches.
First, we went into The Genius’ room. She left for college after Christmas, and I just stayed out. Now I know why I didn’t want to go in there. The outlets in her room weren’t working. They are now. Hey Genius, the electrician wants to thank you for the climbing adventure!
Then I was going to show him where the circuit box is. Only I couldn’t get to it. The back of the storage room looks great, after you climb over the stuff at the entrance. Everyone has just been throwing stuff in the doorway.
And then there’s Superblonde’s room. She keeps blowing the circuit. I think it’s because there’s junk all over and the electricity can’t get to the outlets.
The main part of our house looks great. Just don’t head to any of the wings. I’m not blameless either. Here’s the chair in my room.
My bed isn’t made either. Nor is any other bed in this house.
I have been knitting a very little bit, in between home schooling two kids. NO!!!! It’s not permanent. Frankie missed school last week when we were skiing, so we had to do all his work this week (which is his spring break). Did that make sense? Home schooling one kid is a piece of cake compared to two. I know people who homeschool many kids, and I don’t know how they do it.
Let’s just say that I’m knitting to stay sane. This is what I’ve done in the last couple of days.
Impressed? Neither am I. What I am thrilled about is The Woolen Rabbit’s Whisper Merino Lace. Go buy some. Tell yourself or your husband that you have my permission. Just say, “The passing down crazy lady said I could”. That should add credibility…..NOT!
I”m doing Miralda’s Triangular Shawl. It’s worked from the outside, so I cast on 331 stitches. If you want to read an unbelievable account of the trials of casting on this shawl, read the Yarn Harlot’s account. I started casting on with a long tail, and it was supposed to be knit on, but other than that it went fine. Hopefully, you’ll see beads by Monday. There is Nascar knitting coming up this weekend.
After I clean this up!
Guess what The Crazy family is doing tomorrow???
