The Natives Are Home

And things are back to normal. We laid low today, relaxed, and didn't even get out of our jammies. Maybe I stayed so busy so I wouldn't miss them so much?! That week of cleaning wore me out for sure, I need some serious rest now. I have a doctor's appointment on Wednesday, hopefully I'll be functional by then.

My inlaws brought the girls home, stayed the night, then left today. Unfortunately, a 2 hour drive home for them turned into almost 6 hours due to a tanker spill/accident on I-40. I had seen something on the news last night but still don't know my "counties" around here so I had no idea it was on their way home! I feel so bad!! I wish I could've told them to hold off or spend the night again. Anyway, they're finally home safe and sound - and we're all back together so things are as they should be.

I finished one sock out of some Cherry Tree Hill but can't remember how many stitches I cast on for it. I always do that, I think my memory is "dependable"! That's so funny (translate: I'm such a dork!) And later I'm always mad at myself for being lazy and not writing things down! I'm too tired to count them so I'm just going to go with 68 for the next one. I do remember that I was going a bit bigger because lately my socks have been a little too tight for me so they end up going to either my Mom or my girls. Finally a pair for me. No pictures yet as it was rainy most of today and frankly I hardly even moved. A rock, that's me. Night.

OOOh! I see my weather pixie is back!! I'm glad I didn't give up on her!

You're way more patient than me!:) I've been doing too much yarn shopping the past couple of days, I'm exhausted...need to just veg out today...nap is definetely on the plans! and maybe some cookies!!! I have all that new stash in my dining room so I can walk by and pet it! Isn't that what a dining rooms for? hee hee Now since the girls are home you can go back to normal routines...always better when they're home.:) I was going to start swimming again today but I'm sooo tired from this weekend...guess I could go just for a little bit..we'll see!!!

Glad everyone's home safe and sound!

Can't wait to see a pic of your sock. It's so nice when you get a chance to knit something for yourself!
