That was the sound of my days rushing by! I have just been soooo busy. But I'm actually much happier when I'm busy. It's weird, and actually not really related to my time at all. More so, money. See, after our tax returns and incentive bonus, we cleared about $14G this month. (can I get a hell yeah!?) It's nice to not be extra stressed about money, to buy things I've wanted (my wheel), and to get a chance to spend some time with my husband, just my husband. Everything is pretty much right with the world, and I'm not afraid to say it has a lot to do with having that financial blessing. People like to say money is the root of all evil, they are WRONG, that is a misquote. The actual quote says that the LOVE of money is the root of all evil. Get that? If you ever use it wrong on your blog, I will correct you. That is one of my biggest pet peeves, please. Money is not evil, it is inanimate, has no soul. It is our glorification of it that opens the door for evil.
Whoops, tangent. :)
Things are good. My spinning is getting better, I ordered my wheel, I'm getting good ideas of what to get my PRGE pal, some yarn arrived today. I got to go knitting tonight and OH! Kristi said that I can join her knitting group while I am on vacation! Cookie will be at the BMFA camp thing, but that's fine. Knitting with cool people is always fun. Just glad they don't think I'm nutty. hehe
It's amazing what practically 4 straight hours of knitting can get done. Seriously, I get bored with plain socks way too easily. These socks will take me awhile. But having my "military spouse" class gave me a lovely gap of time within to knit and not be bugged by little ones who want to hold my hand. We had a lovely conversation about sock knitting and Frank and Martha socks at the shop tonight. It was funny. Jennifer (blogless! the shame) is a Frank too, she is using some Zen String yarn right now in a truly funky colorway. Which unfortunately I don't know the name of, I think Aloha? I definitely turned her onto Wollmeise, which I cannot wait to get. I have had a bit too much fun shopping recently, especially since I like to use my pal as an excuse. It's like, oh, I'm buying for her, why don't I just get myself something too?
