Breaking out the sparkling apple cider and white grape juice for the kids. Don’t worry, theirs is nonalcoholic. All the booze is belonging to me. Ima do another shot. 5 minutes on the East Coast. Happy New Year my lovelies!
I am so nearly drunk. It’s fantastic. I need sex. Don’t judge me.
Watching the NY Rockin' Eve
Me: OMG LADY GAGA IS A GIANT SPARKLY TURD!
Artemas: Nah, she's a gallbladder. NAH! She's gonna come out as a hamburger.
Josiah: OMG THERE'S MCDONALDS!
(Brothers. I loves them.)
I need more booze. I can’t progress anymore on this sock til I go to JoAnn’s. Mom just scorched her tongue on queso and says now she can’t give the gas station guy his NYE blow job behind the dumpster.
Live blogging NYE
Sitting on the floor ripping all our CDs to Mom’s computer to load into Tony’s new MP3 player. We’re old skool like that. Just took 2 shots of Crown. Almost done knitting the heel on this sock. Watching NCIS reruns. Woop!
OH MY GOSH MY HUSBAND IS WATCHING DUMB AND DUMBER. On TV. IN THE MIDDLE. I hate this movie. I hate this movie. I would rather watch BioDome. BioDome had one redeeming feature: Pauly Shore. Which meant No Jim Carrey.
My husband just came home! Bearing a large paper bag from the liquor store. He was supposed to work until 10:30 tonight and he never gets to come home early so this is a very rare and very nice surprise! I had asked him to run to the liquor store this morning ‘cause I needed 3tablespoons of bourbon for a chicken recipe I want to make this week but he hadn’t had time. Happy New...
2011, Knitting Review
Last year I took stock in . I thought I’d do the same this year. Pics can be found here if you’re on Ravelry. I end the year with 3 Work in Progress projects. One lace shawl; I got to the beading and quit. It’s a full attention project. Maybe I’ll finish it over the summer. One pair of socks, which I’m about 1/2 done with the first sock for. It’s an...
Yes, I am eating a bologna sandwich with potato...
No, I don’t care if you’re judging me.
Headache let up ‘cause Tony made me lay on the couch and watch Sinbad Legend of the Seven Seas with the world’s biggest ice pack on the back of my head. So I cleaned the bathroom, re-rolled all the towels, swept and mopped the floor and put this in the crock pot. Gonna have tacos for dinner!

Happy New Year's Eve to me
My head hardly hurt at all yesterday, thankfully. It actually didn’t hurt at all until about 10:30pm. Tony says I’m allergic to him. humor. har. Today it’s making up for it. I wish it would just explode and leave me alone. The good news is I don’t think I have anywhere to go today. I just need to figure out what to feed the advancing horde for dinner. Mom and the...

Mom says it exponentially increases your chance of having “weird” happen to you. Since weird follows my family around, I should have known better. But I love my old house with its big old trees. However one of those huge old trees, right between our house and the neighbor’s, is looking suspiciously fragile and the last time it stormed lost several limbs as big around as my...
We may have to slow down. Our Friday has been jam packed. Sarcasm is like a second language to me… or maybe it’s my first and English is my second? I dunno. We piddled around this morning. When Tony left for work at 2 we put in HP 5-7 “for a few minutes”. Then Hannah started crying about everything and I thought if she was a mess at home it would be worse grocery...

I thought I’d had a fairly productive morning. I knit the toe of a sock, called a scheduled an allergy test appointment for myself for next Thurs, called and rescheduled my yearly girly doctor’s appointment for MARCH because my Dr is awesome as that’s as soon as she could see me. I swept the floors and seasoned steaks for Tony to grill before he left for work. And then I...
Bedtimes are out of control at my house
I’m gauge swatching for a pair of socks at 1am because I have a sickness. I hate swatching. But I’m converting a colorwork hat pattern into a sock pattern so I figure swatching can’t hurt. Jeremiah just came out of the bathroom, the tiny little bathroom that is currently occupied by Tony, Jeremiah and Hannah, to ask if we have any bubble bath stuff? Why, no because Jeremiah...
SST just under the wire
‘Cause nothing is sexier than dry heaves because one’s headache came back with all ferocity, am I right? Calling the allergist tomorrow incase it’s an allergy I don’t know I have causing them. If I’m allergic to chocolate I will be pissed. Sub-titled: at least it was dry heaves because I ate egg salad and chocolate for dinner.
It makes me very happy when I’m knitting something I’m making up a pattern for, and I remember that I’ve been keeping extensive notes in my ravelry projects page. I need to be more thorough with that.

Heel done! Only 12 more rows to go on sock! BUAHAHAHA short socks. Still watching Fringe. Ate egg salad for dinner. About to play Scrabble JR with the kids. Nails need top coat.
Excedrin & Dr Pepper, you're my only friends
Head feels much better. Emotionally I feel better to. What gives? Watching Fringe. Was knitting a heel. Started adding fringe (HAHAHAHAHAHA) to Tony’s mohawk hat that I didn’t get finished before Christmas. Ran out. Had to cut more. Got ADD & painted my nails. Now I have to wait for them to dry before I can either knit or add mohawk. Crap.
Thanks to the Excedrin I took an hour ago my headache is actually letting up but for some reason I keep feeling like I need to cry. I just want Tony to come home and the kids to go to bed. He is big and warm and still…you’ve never seen someone just be able to sit and be quiet until you’ve seen Tony watch TV. I could lay up against him and be cuddled and warm and no one would...
I am useless today
My head is killing me. I sent a message to my RN friend to ask her who she said was the only decent general practitioner in Oak Ridge because something’s gotta give. I can’t remember if this is day 7 or day 10 for a headache but I have zero noise tolerance today and it’s making me a rage-a-holic. I swear I am ” this close to screaming the next time one of the kids makes...

My Idiot Brother.
I haven’t seen the movie, but I live the life. My idiot brother (the Marine, who gets dumber the older he gets apparently) called my husband tonight and told him the following: He blew up the heads in the van my parents gave him to drive when the POS Honda he bought years ago (against MULTIPLE people telling him it was a bad idea). He has a friend who has a Springfield XD .40 gun he...
mysevenkids replied to your chat: In the car Except that felonies can be State. But kidnapping, that’s federal. But fat people are harder to kidnap. Nana has all the wisdom. I’ll pass this note along
I’d LOVE to drive into Oak Ridge tomorrow and check the PO box cause I’m SURE the fiber I ordered the day before Christmas will be waiting on me. But not as much as I’d love to stay home fold laundry, watch Fringe and play Zelda. Aaahhhh…. no place to go week is RULING.
In the car
Hannah: ALL THE CARS ARE BELONGING TO ME!
Me: Noooo... you don't want to take all the cars. That's called "Grand Theft Auto." It's a felony.
Jeremiah: What's a felony?
Me: It's a federal offense. If you are convicted of a felony you can't get a permit to carry a handgun, or vote.
Jeremiah: What's vote?
Me: That's when you go and give your opinion on who should be sheriff, or mayor, or president.
Jeremiah: So how come you can't?
Me: Because when you're convicted of a felony it means that you have committed such an egregious crime that the federal government of the Unite States of America deems you unworthy to have an opinion.

LORD OF THE RINGS LEGO SETS IN 2012 PEOPLE!!!! AND…. A LEGO LORD OF THE RINGS VIDEO GAME. I’m starting my Christmas list for next year. Take notes.
I briefly considering “Meriadoc” for a name when I was pregnant. We got Hannah instead. True story.
It's probably a good thing
that I never got into video games before I had kids. Because I’m of an addictive obsessive nature, and my kids temper that because instead of being selfish and all about what I want to do, I have little people who depend on me. That being said I played Zelda until 2 am.

Dear Tangled animators...
speckley: How can Bruiser knit a sock with just two non-double-pointed needles? Is he exceptionally good at knitting, or does he just like to knit things that look like socks, but serve no actual purpose as such? Love, Erin P.S. - I know it’s just a movie.
I have to stop watching Prince of Persia now because the arms give me needs. Guess it’s time for Zelda instead.
Partying on New Year's Eve?
Don’t drink and drive-and don’t ride with anybody who does. Tipsy Tow offered by AAA: you don’t have to be a AAA member, from 6pm-6am on New Years Eve/day, they will take your drunk self and your car home for FREE. Save this number: 1-800-222-4357. For those of you who party; stay safe. Me? I’ve never been out on new year’s. Easier to stay home and drink.
Tony talked me into ordering Pizza Hut’s big meal deal (2 pizzas, wings, breadsticks for $20.) Fine. I’ll eat pizza then. : ) Gonna go get it in a min, then resume watching Prince of Persia. Does the game come for the Wii platform? Once we’re done eating I’ll also resume playing with yarn. This pic is from Christmas day in the car but I’m still playing...
Still in my pajamas and handknit socks from yesterday (thanks Mom). Still playing Harry Potter. Still no plans to leave the house. If I drink those last 2 beers in the fridge I’d have a valid excuse to not go anywhere. Muahaha. Except Hannah is asking to go get ice cubes.
What have you done today?
I’ve laid on the couch playing video games since I woke up this morning. Ah…. this is the life. I did take a very brief hiatus to toss a load of laundry in the washer, and then another to cook the kids some scrambled eggs and heat up some ham my MIL sent home with us on Christmas. Easy dinner! I may venture out to walmart later tonight, or I might not. I’m leaning...
