day 10 and i’m “it”
3 down. 1 to go. it looks as if my girl is going to be the last one to say good-bye to this illness. poor thing sounds like a frog when she talks. a quick library run by me this afternoon made her face lit up when she saw the stacks and stacks of good reads i brought home.
you know all those little projects we’ve been doing have only been possible because they are taking the place of formal school. and because for some reason i didn’t get as sick as the kids. i hope i don’t get deathly ill once everyone is better. that would be just my luck.
i am wondering about a field trip scheduled for tomorrow. still debating whether we should go or not. i may end up staying home and letting my husband just take the boys. i feel so bad because they’ve been stuck at home for so many days now. you know it’s bad when you are letting your kids do things like ride scooters in the house.
well, sweet christine who is just as darling as can be has tagged me for this meme, so here goes…
Six names you go by:
mom. mama. regina. precious dove from heaven (don’t laugh. my husband calls me that). monkey. and ruby begonia. both childhood names. can you tell?
Three things you are wearing: a t-shirt. a pullover. and a crocheted shawl i bought at a thrift store.
Three things you want very badly right now: for an elf to sew the kids’ halloween costumes. without any mistakes. for my girl to get better. and a million bucks. no, better yet 100 million so i could share it with you all.
Three things you did last night/yesterday: read some of the nuts and bolts about knitting. trying to figure out increases and decreases. made turkey burger tacos. washed every single dirty dish in my kitchen.
Two things you ate today: chocolate covered coffee beans. chicken-rice-creamy cilantro and cheese.
Two people you last talked to on the phone: my mom and my EF.
Two things you are going to do tomorrow: clean the bathrooms and carve pumpkins.
Your three favorite beverages: triple shot espresso with breve cream. green tea with vanilla soymilk. earl grey tea with half and half and a pinch of sugar.
now if you can hardly contain yourself because i am just so darn exciting and you want to play along too….then consider yourself tagged! just leave me a comment so i can read. i don’t always participate in memes, but this one seemed harmless enough. although i felt sort of like i was baring my soul with the childhood nicknames thing.
I liked reading your answers, Regan. They were fun! I just went into get help with increases … I attempted it on my own, and I messed up, and I still don’t know how to fix mistakes. The gal at the shop made it look *so* easy! I have to do it so infrequently that the next time I have to do it, I don’t remember! I can decrease pretty easily, though. It’s just knitting (or purling) two together. Although I had to do that last night on my pink scarf, and it didn’t look right, but I think it is … UGH! I really like chocolate espresso beans, too, but I can’t have them in the house, or I’d eat too many =) Have a great weekend! I hope your daughter gets well soon and that you all can get back into healthy living again. God bless!
ruby begonia!!! LOVE IT!! Dove from heaven is pretty sweet too.
I cannot believe how long you guys are dealing with the icky-poo sick bug over there.
I can picture in my head the scooters going zoom zoom all over the house. Love it!
Sending you prayers, hugs, and love from over the Pacific! I wish we could sit together and munch on chocolate covered espresso beans (I have some – I should buy some of these Kona ones and mail them to you, you’d love them) and drink fancy drinks and laugh and laugh! I wish I could be there to give you a break –
hope you all can enjoy the weekend!!!
i am sure i have told you but the knitting help website has videos of all things knitting you could ever need!! it is awesome.
and regina is a pretty good name to go by (though i hated it growing up)
okay, i keep coming back to the ‘chocolate covered coffee beans” sounds delish, with an eyebrow raised 😉
