Not much going on

Hi there. How are you? I'm doing ok, just tired. I am wating for Sean to learn the value of a good nights sleep, and I pray it happens soon! Let's see, what's going on... Yesterday was Travis' birthday. He and his dad did the Richard Petty Experience where they got to be a passenger in a race car going very fast. They both had a grand time.

Travis hurt his foot taking the garbage out Sunday, split the nail on his big toe of his right food and some scrapes on the top of his foot. He wasnt happy. So, I guess it was a good thing he wasnt doing the driving at Richard Petty because owie foot + driving 150mph = BIGTIME owie.

Last week, as I think I told you, Jake had 2 red faces and got to take a trip to the principals office... thus not letting us go to Disney on Saturday. Yesterday, green face - so far so good! We threatened that for any non-green faces he receives, one of his Christmas presents will be donated to toys for tots. I'm not sure which of the following made him behave yesterday:

*Mommy or Daddy gets to eat the chocolate from the Advent Calendar
*Mamaw was very disappointed that we werent able to Disney
*No gameboy or picking what is on tv
*His presents going to toys for tots
*doing extra chores is not fun
*Going to bed early and not getting to stay up as late as Sean is not fun

Whos to say, but it's working, for yesterday anyway. Wish us luck.

I've gotten a little more done on the 2nd slipper, at lunch I should be able to do the heel turn and gusset, so tonight or tomorrow I should finish it. Yay!

That's all I've got. I hope all is well for all of you. Only 21 more knitting, er shopping days 'til Christmas.

HOpe things start going better with Jake. My nephew goes through stages.....right now the only thing that works is the threat of taking away his "Yu gi o" or Pokemon cards.
