Muppet Arms!!

Oh ya, got serious muppet arms going today..why you ask...silly monkeys, it's FRIDAY! that's why!!

I now understand why I was in a knitting funk. Many moons ago, I ordered some yummy yarn from the Loopy Ewe, it's Cherry Tree Hill, Supersock Thin in "Carnivale" and I have been dying to knit it since I got it, and well I decided that I would cast on a pair of Monkey's with it. I'm just so excited, I started knitting on my sweeties socks. I don't quite get it either.

So I think what my problem is, is that I set all these goals for myself and then collapse under the pressure of trying to reach them all. Now don't get me wrong goals are good, but like most things, they are good in moderation. That being said, my new knitting goal is to knit whatever strikes my fancy and to knit up some new Christmas stockings. That's it. I think I shan't collapse under that weight. (sorry, i just love the word shan't)

That's all I gots for my little googley butts today.

Yes boys and girls, it's thank god it's Thursday!!
I am pleased it's Thursday for many reasons, such as, I am going to dinner tonight with Janey-Pooh, Margarita's at Chili's..woooo! Also, with today being Thursday, can only mean that tomorrow is FRIDAY!!!! the bestest day of the work week!
Saturday I have a BBQ to attend which means no knitting (they wouldn't understand, sad, but true) till Sunday, which is A-OK with me, as sweetie has promised to cook me dinner!! Yay! (am sure it's gonna turn into that episode of GG where Jackson cooks dinner for Sookie and she's all trying to get up in his cooking groove in the kitchen...will try to control myself)
Got a little bit done on my sweetie-man's socks (ha, ha, cause i'm doing the gentleman's sock, only i don't have the book, so i'm guessing at what the pattern is by the picture so i renamed it...really this sounded better in my head). Have cast on for Chickie's other baby cable sock, just haven't done anything with it since then. Oh well.
That's all I got my little jellybeans.

I love Bad Co.

I am going to start my first pair of toe up socks today...weee!!!!!!
Ain't they purdy...
Will be using my Sundara sock yarn in the Cherry Blossom colorway, and that pleases me.
I get to use my precious...ok...that was a little creepy and I should probably delete that, but I won't as that is how i roll.
Am excited and nervous all at once and I get to check another thing off my goals, which are somewhere, either here or Ravelry in the SoS goals, I just don't know anymore!!

Monday, July 7, 2008


It's Monday my little monkey's! How was everyone's weekend?
I am sleepy and want to take a nap, however protocol suggests that being that I am at work I should be awake. BOOOO!!!

I have started on Wendy's SoS 2008 sock pattern. I am using Sundara's yarn in the Cherry Blossom colorway, which is just soooo pretty! So yay!

Am stealing a page from Crazy Aunt Purls book...

2008 Birthday Resolutions:


  • Budget - find one that works and stick to it
  • Debt - get out of it, somehow - this is where the budget comes in handy
  • General - stop spending (not that I have the extra cash to spend at the moment anyways...)money on stupid things and by stupid things I mean books...that's what library's are for. and stop buying stupid things... i don't know what the stupid things are, but i certainly have enough of them.
  • Ask for Help - (which if you know me, know this is easier said than done, esp. when it comes to money, I'm 32 I should have this under control by now right?) regarding the budget and money things, obviously, I don't know what I'm doing, if I did I wouldn't be writing this category.
  • Credit Card - PAY ON TIME!! it's hard because all the bills are due at the same time. I think the CC companies do this on purpose to drive you bonkers and make you feel like a horrid person with no control over anything.


  • Walk - for many reasons, mostly tho to whittle down the size of my ass, which is clearly unaware it's on a white girl, yes i went there, when sir mix a lot wrote baby got back, ya, he was talking about my ass.
  • Sit ups - i have no idea how many is a good amount, so i will start off with 15 regular crunches, 15 side things, and 15 leg lifty things... that's 45 total, a good amount to start off with.
  • Arms - they are getting flabby up top, have to do something about them now so that when i am later in years they aren't the size of my thighs. can you tone your arms with resistance bands?
  • Thighs - speaking of thighs, they are a smidge big. hopefully walking will help.
  • Parking - park far away from the enterance so i have to walk a ways to get to the store.


  • Fruits and Veg - try to eat more of them. make more stir frys and try new fruits and veg and eat more salad, it's the summer.
  • Sugar - try to eat as much of it as i have been. that means no cotton candy, no chocolate, no cake, once and while is ok and once and while does not mean once a week.
  • Fast Food - honestly, i don't eat that much fast food, although i do frequent Kelly's and other places like that, and even tho they are fast food, it's not McDonald's or BK or Taco get the idea.
  • Water - drink more of it.
  • Milk - will drink a glass a day, it's good for me.
  • Portion Control - learn it, use it...


  • Diet - i am on a yarn one and sock yarn counts as i have far too much of it (and no money to spend on more)
  • UFO - finish them, and if like the FiL sweater, it's something i will never finish, frog it and reuse the yarn from something that i (or someone) will get use out of.
  • Stash - organize it, although i don't know how one would do that.


  • 401(k) - deposit money into it, even if it's just $50.
  • Savings - start doing it, it's hard to do at the moment with the looming debt and all, but i really need start again.
  • Storage - sell some of the crap that is in there, less stuff = smalled storage unit = less storage rent. if i do manage to sell things, put the money into savings.


  • Mood - stop being so friggin cranky. (easier said than done, i'm sure). think positively, be calm and all that hippy crap :P
  • Moisturize - i was in a habit of doing that in the morning and at night, now i don't do it at all. must start up again so that when i older and have hot arms and smaller ass, i'm not all saggy and wrinkly.
  • Ex Hubby - make a conscience effort not to bring him (or his crazy family) up around sweetie, i don't do it often, but the times i do i'm sure are annoying.
  • Self - read more (yes it's possible). turn off the tv and listen to the radio. play a game of cards or something with sweeting once a week or so.

That's all I can think of. It's a long list, but do-able, as long as I make the effort. =)

I do believe I will be putting in a full day at office. Apparently my boss knows not of the unspoken rule. Such is life.

Am trudging along on the Thuja, I don't know why I just don't have the groove for it yet.

Am going to listen to my gal Lishy and rip the FiL sweater and make something else with it. The yarn is too nice (ok, expensive) to go unworn.

Doubt I will get much knitting done tomorrow and that saddens me. Maybe I'll sneak some in before I head over to Chickies for the bbq. ;)

I am sleepy and am in need of a nap
