I'm Still Here

Hello everyone!! I just wanted to pop in and say I'm still here. Things have just been a little busy.  School wrapped up for summer break last week which means some students were graduating, so gifts had to be found, parties attended, etc.  Then we put Number Two Son on a plane to Tulsa, Oklahoma to spend some time with his Aunt Wendy, Uncle Greg and his young cousins. He left Sunday and since I haven't heard from him since his plane touched the ground,  I can only guess that he's having a wonderful time.  The really wonderful part of it is that, other than missing him terribly, I'm not the least bit worried because I know that Wen will take care of him as her own.

Currently, I'm dealing with dysfunctional plumbing as well.  Right before I went to bed last night, I went to the kitchen, opened the cabinet under the sink to get the dish soap out and found a sagging cabinet bottom holding 2 inches of standing water.  Yikes! So I turned off the water under the sink, got Car Guy's shop vac, pulled everything out of the cabinet and cleaned all the water up.  It was about 12:30 am when I finished.  Needless to say, I'm a little pooped today.  I hope my caffeine kicks in soon because it's Tuesday and that means I'm supposed to get together with my Yarn Girls. 

Speaking of yarn, my socks are moving along nicely.  I'm just about ready to close everything up with the toe. I've heard that Kitchener Stitch can be tricky to get the hang of, but I've come this far so there's no turning back now!

By the way, I'm not too worried about the plumbing problem because I'm so blessed to have married a wonderful man who can actually fix things! Cars, plumbing, etc.  It really is wonderful.  Whenever something happens to my car and someone makes the comment about having to take to a mechanic and how much is that going to cost, I just smile and totally shock them by saying I'm not worried because I took care of that years ago,  I just sleep with my mechanic.....Oh!  Naughty! Have a wonderful day!!!!

    thats funny! I like it! I always think, thats a major drawback for lesbianism... while many lesbians become mechanics and electricians (OK, not MANY, but enough that it's not a shock when you meet one) your partner is just not as likely to be able to plumb stuff! Ha ha Or fix your car, that would be the best!!!
    Have a lovely week Melissa!!!
    Oh, and remember, youtube kitchener video! it saved my life and made everything make sense! Can't wait to see those socks on,y ou are such a persistent legend!!!
