doin' stuff...

My Friend Rusty volunteered me to make a baby sweater for the WOmens auxilliary at the United Methodist Church charity project. So I drug out my book, hooks and stash and found this pattern. I made it in a day, and it was quite fun.

Now I have to get busy on reading plays for playday committee, getting the posters finished for Peter Pan, block peter pan, and get ready for Auditions which are in two weeks. The show runs in November, but it has a gajillion kids in it, so we need all the practice time we can get.

I am in the procedd of making christmas presents for the women in the family...finished SIL, now I have started SIS' gift. Have no clue what the guys will get...obviously something homemade. thems the rules around here for Christmas.

I have been swimming every day but Wednesday,. took that one off because my hip was hurting like hell. I had to stop at the rite aid store and get more of Ben. I go to Bed with Ben everynight, sometimes twice a night. you know Ben, Gay is his last name and he warms up my backside and hips really well. I had been out,. I even cut the tube open and got all of it out that way, but I still did not have any for Tuesday night.

Feels so much better now.

So. My SIster Phyllis calls at 1024 last night...DIDYOU FEEL IT? no says I. BUT IT SHOOK THE WHOLE MOBILE. Hrmmmm thinks I NOT here.
She said she was standing doing her laundry at the washer when the floor shook and her tummy flipped and then her TONGUE WENT NUMB! WHAT!!!
I can just see her at the office when the big one hits. MUNNTHUN WENBT NUNmmm

RUN FOR COVER FOLK.....Phyllis tongue went numb, gonna have an earthquake!!! I told her that, and then started laughing and do you that my very christian sister told me to f--- off and called me a bitch as I was laughing at her. That wasnt nice. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL watch for her on the cover of National Enquirer.

Wow, you have been busy! I wish I could let Ben visit me but he causes more bad than good when I let him.

Phyllis has a built in earth quake indicator huh? A numb tongue might cause problems with the warning system. :-)

That baby sweater is so cute, and the story about your sister made me giggle.

I found a fix for not being able to open your site with Internet Explorer 6 (&7) Go here http://tiny.cc/MP2bN and follow the instructions from Stephanie HW typed in CAPS...ref site meter...it works

Sally said...

Aw, that is the sweetest little sweater. You're so smart!!

edt said...

read "in bold" rather than caps above

Mary Lou said...

EDT it wasnt IE6 that is the problem it was IE7 that screwed everything up. My daughter uses firefox exclusively so she thought I should too. But thanks. And it is chilly up in this hemisphere too. I am still waiting for summer and it is almost FALL>

Joan said...

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA..ha..I can't believe that Phyllis's tongue would ever go numb....I read her blog and laughed...she was so pissed at you...You guys are the best!! Love, laugh and piss each other off... that's what we do.

catmomaj said...

The world will be a much safer place I'm thinkin'.

You are going to one busy lady making all those handmade presents for Xmas Mary Lou....but I have to tell you that little baby sweater is adorable....and in ONE day. You area one speedy knitter. I haven't knitted in such a long time. It really is great to make presents for Xmas. So you and Ben are pretty tight bedmates huh? Well, as long as he does his job...no reason to kick him out. Take care sweetie. Sorry I haven't been by more often....I've been busy with work. I'm trying to make up for it as much as I can. Thanks for finding me too.... Hugs, Joy

edt said...

Final Thought re Site Meter...MR C over at KeeWee's blog has researched the problem and believes Site Meter have fixed the problem.

Tabor said...

sorry about my prior comments, if they go to your email. I was on the OTHER blog of yours...Oh, well.

Mary Lou said...

I have another blog? where?

jazzi said...

Wow, I'm seriously impressed - you made that sweater in a day?! I would still be trying to do the bottom two rows of stitches!

catmomaj said...

THANK YOU JAZZI!! Mary Lou is trying to get me started with crocheting, but I can't get beyond a very poorly done 'chain stitch'. At least now I don't feel like I'm alone in the boat. lol!

cute sweater.

An earthquake is an earthquake - they are all scary

Phyllis said...

You didn't tell them that I hung up you too!
Phhhhfffft!

Naw...that's a cardigan, unless those are ornamental buttons? Cute and very impressive anyway.

What's Ben? Do we have him in Britain? My first thought was of a humanoid hot water bottle, but I figure this couldn't be in a tube!

Love the blog,
Wembley

Wembley...Ben is a topical ointment with capsacin that you rub on sore joints and muscles...BEN GAY is one brand. ICY HOT is another.
