Speaking of babies, Damarys' sister went into labor yesterday, and I dont have a text this morning, but I'm sure there's a new baby. So congrats to them.
I also managed to get 4 butterflies done for a charity project with the group. They go to lots of different types of people, over 100 people, terminal people and the like. What a sweet way to brighten up folks' day.
Today I will be hunting the 2nd hand places for one of the bouncy things that Sean loves so much. Once upon a child didnt have one, so I will try a couple other places around here. Wish me luck.
Today will also be back to working on the shawl. Have I told you how over it I am? Yeah, about that much. I do have the sock in case I get sick of the shawl, but if I start with that mindset, I'll have a pair of socks before half a shawl!
Tomorrow Other Tracy is bringing her 5 yr old Jack, and Tony & Nette are bring 6 yr old Tyler and baby Bailey to go swimming. Damarys may bring 5 yr old Jasyline, but because of her new nephew(to be) that is up in the air.
And finally, my big boy is getting his 6 yr molars. He's not happy about the pain, and thanks Kerry for suggesting the Motrin instead of asprin. Havent gotten out the bourbon yet, but we'll see how the whiney day progresses, eh? Funny that he's getting these without losing a tooth yet.
That's it for now, have a great weekend.

I went last night and finally got my hair permed. It's not beautiful today, so I'll take a pic tomorrow once I've been able to rinse it at least.
On my yarn progress - I was able to get a few rounds of the blue/blue done so I think I have about 4 left until it's done. Hopefully between lunch today and tonight I'll get it done to send tomorrow. Wish me luck.

Jake started a mini-soccer camp at school this week. He's enjoying it, me less so since they gave us 1 shirt that he has to wear every day... and it's WHITE! ?. So, I'm getting lots of laundry done - which is a plus, I suppose. He got a soccer bal for his birthday and has been showing us his newly learned moves. He's so cute when he gets excited about stuff. Also for his birthday, he got enough money to replace the gameboy that he lost. No, not the "we'll find it later" lost, but the "Mommy I left my gameboy in the gas station bathroom 4 miles back and can we turn around" lost. Of course it wasnt there when we got back, and after a week of summer camp and no game boy he was kinda twitchy. But, lessons learned, so that part is good.
I was able to get to Michaels to get the yarn to finish up a baby ghan for a friend of Travis'. The baby came on 6/11, but we just found out about him last week, so I'm trying to go quick. It looks nice, and I really like the star pattern. It looks like a lot more work than it is I think.
I am still a few rounds from finishing the blanket for otherTracy, but she's not due until November so I have some time.
I have restarted the convention shawl - this would be time #4 if you're keeping track. Angora is not a good frogging yarn, just so you know. I think it's going ok this time, of course I'm only about 6 rows in. We'll see how it turns out.
That's really about it, back to work. I am trying to get some video of Sean that they took at daycare, which is so funny that I want to send off to AFV. Cant because Travis works for the rat, but maybe the daycare lady can. So, hopefully I'll be able to share that tomorrow.

I have not finished otherTracy's blanket, but I think I have only about 3 or 3.5 rounds to go on it. I ripped out the entire angora shawl and started another one - with my own design elements... wish me luck. We'll see how it goes. Once I finish my now 2 baby blankets, I will give myself 2 weeks on the shawl and if I dont like how it's coming then I start on an afghan. I could turn out an American Flag afghan in 3 weeks if I try hard enough, so I always have a fallback. I have not done stitch one on either the sweater or sock, so thats something. Moving on.
Tomorrow I am going to Disney to lets some friends in. Then on Sunday is Jake's birthday party. His Star Wars birthday party. With him being 6 and all we figured it was time to stop making his birthdays just another reason to hang out with our friends and actually invite some people his own age. So, We will have more than 10 people under 15... so it should be interesting.
I cannot begin to describe how grown up I feel right now. It's very strange indeed.
I didnt take any pics last night, so you're out of luck on that front. I am trying to ignore the little voice in the back saying "Hey, what about the blackmail video of you doing virtual reality sword fighting?". Have a nice weekend.

To Jacob on the Occasion of your 6th Birthday. (even though I know you wont read this for a while, if ever)(everyone else, please bear with me)
To celebrate this day, Travis Jake and I went to DisneyQuest for the day with a stop at House of Blues for lunch. Here's what it looked like (that's a virtual reality helmet on me and Jake) there's video too, but I dont have time to post it today. Maybe tomorrow:

I ran out of pink yarn to finish the babyghan, but got some yesterday and brought it with me to work on at lunch. While I was waiting to get that yarn, I worked on a couple squares for a baby comfortghan How sad is that! A little girl, age 1, took a tumble on the stairs. When her folks took her to the hospital to make sure she's ok they found a tumor on her brain the size of a golfball. Looks like she went in for surgery on Tuesday, but I dont have an update. But on my squares, 1 was crocheted, and it's done, and I'm knitting the other one in seed stitch. This is my first time sucessfully doing it, and I really like it. I'll show you tomorrow if I can remember my camera.
I have been kinda ignoring the angora shawl, I dont know if I like it enough to put in the silent auction for work. Its not as professional as I would like - all because of the holes down the back. For some reason they are zig-zaggy. If I were a real knitter, I might know why and how to fix it, but I dont. Perhaps I can make just a normal triangle shawl with the lace from this original pattern along the bottom? Hrm. I have less than 3 months to go, so if I'm gonna change it I probably ought to hurry it up, eh?
That's it for now. Have a good monday.

This foil has lived in my house since I got married. Travis and I had just gotten married and moved into our apartment when I sent him to the store to get foil and milk. He went to Sams. He got 2 750 rolls of foil and a gallon of milk. I think I gave my Mom one of the rolls a few years ago. I just finished mine. It's been 8 years and 1 month. !. I find it hysterical that I had 1 roll of foil for 8 years. And to think, I made fun of Travis for getting so much!
That's it for now. Have a safe weekend, and if you're around here, try to stay dry.
