Halloween is next Monday, and whilst I love Halloween, this year it is making me sad.  I never really had trick or treaters in all my years living on my own, despite that, I always bought candy, just in case, but that isn't why I'm sad.  I'm sad, because I have been missing my ex.  I'm not sure why, maybe because the Patriots have been on Sundays and we use to watch it together or if his friend Mike would come over to watch, I'd go on the computer catch up on some t.v. shows but the game would be background noise.  I miss that. 
I also miss our Halloween.  It was more or less a regular day, dinner, t.v., Edgar full of candy on the coffee table (Edgar is my bear cookie jar that had mini candy in it year round) maybe a horror movie or some video gaming.  Things we did mostly everyday, but this time of year makes me miss it more. 
This Halloween, maybe this year, while watching The Living Dead I'll knit him a heart or 2.

I need to be a waitress

Not really, in all honesty, for the most part people annoy me.  I'm kinda like Shirley McLain in Steel Magnolia's only younger and with better hair, fashion sense & 2 cats instead of a huge dog.  
However, and this is what I don't understand, and yes, I know it's tv and not real life, but apparently, as a waitress you can afford a nice apartment, in a big city, granted they're in a scary neighborhood, but still!  How?  GRRRRR
tiny rant over, thank you for your support.

Last Wednesday I got to spend the entire day with my lovely S.i.L and cute as a button pooh bear.  I, as a first time Auntie, learned how to change my first diaper, with mom's assistance of course, it was poopy & everything.  I was so proud of myself.  When I was done velcroing the diaper, I picked him up and the moment of truth, the diaper stayed on.  That's right folks, I did not have to duct tape the diaper to the baby as I feared I might have had to.
O.K. folks, here's what gets me, they have first time parent classes, sibling classes, hell, Grandparent classes, all to teach you how to care for a baby...Grandparent classes, seriously!?!?  but NO Auntie classes.  GRRRRRRR.  Anywho, there was much baby coo-ing and snuggling and it was fabulous and best of home, I went home smelling with my clothes smelling like the baby.  :)

I have been working a lot lately, so no new knitting going on, just a couple of hearts here and there.

It's Not Easy Being Green

I worked on Saturday, almost a full day to catch up from the day I took off to meet my little pooh bear.  Since I was at work and kinda crabby, I decided to treat myself to the Muppets Green Album and I've been listening to it ever since.  On repeat.  Seriously.  Sick, I know.  I can't help it, it cheers me up and makes me less stabby.

I am super tired today, which someone told me might be because of too much sleep, which caused me to ask this: Where does too much sleep tiredness end and real tiredness begin? 

I have also been crabby (thank you PMS! you rock my world!) So I am going to stop and take stock of things to be happy about. 
~ My little pooh bear
~ My mum without whom, who knows
~ My friends, esp. Russ who makes me laugh like a loon & Adam, who is always there
~ My sweetie, who even though he likes jar sauce over my homemade sauce, is a pretty cool guy
~ The Kitties, Sirus, Lila, Riley & Bella boo, (the last 2 are not mine) they are nutso and make me laugh and follow me around everywhere and meow at me. (i'm looking at you Riley & Sirus) and like to surpise me with lap visits and boob squishing. 
~ The Job - sometimes refered to as the 4th ring of hell, I'm very gratefull to have a job esp in this economy. 
~ The Muppets because they are cool and muppet-like

I feel a little better.
