Chris is still gone...*sigh*...I feel like a single mom! I did redecorate the bedroom so it would be fabulous when he came home. I also had another stroke of genius ( I have them quite often now ) I had a blank wall in my bathroom and couldn't decide what to hang there. So after searching for Mom for an hour in her motorized cart at Walmart singing "I'm a Turbo Mother" to the tune of Judas Priest in my head, I found it!*and her* A dry erase board! It is quite cute, framed in black with a cork board around it for love notes! Now I can profess my love to the man of my dreams each morning! I know, we're sappy like that!
So Magnus turns the big one-one on Monday. He has school and such so we decided to celebrate today. We went shopping then out to ice cream. Came back and got Grandma so we could go to Walmart (as stated above). Max wanted McDonalds *gross*, but it was his day so we went. After our horrendous, fat filled, artery clogging dinner we commenced with the gifts. Chris and I finally caved and got him a Nintendo DS. Grandma got him a game and a watch. Thank God for the watch, now he doesn't have an excuse for not being home on time! Here are a few pics:
And 2 hours later...........

Chris is back from Portsmouth, but still underway *sigh*
I am now down 42 lbs since Nov. and am a respectable size 6
I am currently working on my Spin Certification so I can teach at WOW in July
Max thinks that saying "holy shizzle" is not actually cursing
That is all I have time for right now because I am sweaty and need to shower. I promise I will start updating regularly again!
Next post: The Decisiete De Mayo party!!!

So, I am thinking of trying my hand at spinning. I just think making your own yarn really gives anything you crochet the ultimate "handmade" feeling. I am looking at a kit online and just seeing the fibers you can buy for sooooo cheap just makes me want to do it so bad. Plus, Whore has moved over to the dark side and started knitting....gasp! and handspun yarn just looks nicer knitted. I know I am just enabling her, but what can I do? I saw a huge amount of this beautiful deep purple silk for about 1/10 the price of buying it already made into yarn. I am thinking of trying to spin it into a nice DK weight so she can knit a nice tank or something. We'll see. God knows she will have enough yarn after her B-day trip to Webs. Who knows, maybe I will love it then I can make the yarn and Whore can make the items. I smell Etsy shop!
