Suck it Life!

Sometimes life gives you a great big suckerpunch to the gut. 

And all I want to say is "Suck it, Life!"

I'll now retreat back into my grumpy, pouty, angry corner.

pros and cons

+ Carole King, Tapestry - makes me happy every time
+ hubby telling me this morning that he thinks my grey hairs are pretty
+ Real Simple organization products at Target - i'm 100% in love
+ my voicemail light isn't blinking
+ coming home from Target yesterday my whole car smelled laundry fresh because of the Method dryer sheets i bought
+ is it possible that i'm looking forward to doing laundry tonight?  new detergent, new bucket of oxyclean, a great big bottle of bleach for the whites, and new dryer sheets
+ knitting.  i love it.  i want to do it all the time.  working on a basic baby crew sweater right now.  cotton so it's washable.  i think about knitting stuff with alpaca and wool for babies & kids and then have to remind myself, harshly, that handwashing isn't fun for parents.  right?  but it's so soft & pretty! 
+ hubby made mac & cheese last night.  and borrowed two movies from C & H that i've been itching to watch - Drop Dead Gorgeous (makes me laugh SOOO hard) & Best in Show
+ maybe we'll see baby Penelope tonight.  i bought them some baby towels at Target - i have to drop them off
+ anniversary card from my mom & dad last night with $20 in it.  and Hannah telling me she got a card from my mom & dad yesterday with $20 in it.  very cute.  (must remember to write thank you card!)
+ seeing on my boss's calendar that she's out tomorrow.  love that.

- being at work
- three or four very bright pink pimples on my face - it's all my fault though because i've been eating poorly

  2. the green iced tea i just made tastes more green than i thought it would

  3. i love fridays

  4. i love pay days

  5. i love friday pay days

  6. i'm leaving work early - 2:30 - just because i want to

  7. this means i have only 5 hours left - one of which is lunch hour

  8. at lunch i'm going to Casa de Moda on Cabot St. to try to find something small for Hannah for her birthday

the friday before a long weekend is always a slow one.  as the seconds last longer and longer the cubicle feels more and more like a cage.

i'm VERY excited to have three days off.  here are the plans:

FRIDAY NIGHT: vacuum.  knit.  have a beer.

that's just about the extent of it so far.  i expect to have lots of good knitting time.  many projects to get to - many for chuck & hannah. 

i will likely have to get to AC Moore at least once - i'm going to need more yarn for the baby projects.  and i'm considering spending an afternoon dying yarns with Wilton Icing Dyes.  I just read a whole tutorial about this online and it looks like fun.  I can get the icing dye at AC Moore.

going to AC Moore will be good because it will be an excuse to get to Starbucks at least once over the weekend - this is a must for hub. 

other than these (very loose) plans we'll probably hang out with chuck & hannah at least once.  and maybe do some laundry.  i LOVE long weekends.

right now i'm eating baked lays and drinking diet coke - and am hoping that the next hour and fifteen minutes will go by quickly.  or maybe that hubby will be up for leaving early.  that's not as likely as the quickly part.  :) 

happy almost labor day!
