I bought these two books for $1 each at JoAnn's yesterday. There are a lot of really good recipes that I'm going to try during the holidays this year. Of course, I'll share them with you.
This picture made me laugh. Sammi just makes me laugh all the time because she's so goofy-looking. She's the best dog ever though...not a bit of trouble and very quiet and mild mannered. I know a lot of people think pugs are ugly, but when they're yours, they are so darn cute it hurts!
I've gotten seven rows done on the grotto blanket, but I don't think I like it. I may frog it and pick another pattern. What do you think of that bit of fickleness? I'm not making an entire blanket that I don't like though. It's too expensive and takes so much time. I'm not enjoying doing the pattern much either. It's just too weird.
That's it. I've decided I'm frogging it.
I watched the memorial service for the Ft. Hood victims today and cried and cried. Ugh. I wouldn't have watched it, but I just happened to be on a channel that was carrying it live. I'm so freakin' empathetic that I shouldn't watch stuff like that. It hurts too much.
And speaking of the Army, I don't know if I told y'all for sure that my son has joined. He barely made the age limit, dammit, before it was too late. He leaves January 19th. Did I tell y'all this? It seems like I did, but I don't remember. I'm trying not to think about it and push it out of my mind every time I do. I just can't think or talk about it right now. I'll have plenty of time for thinking and fretting after boot camp when he goes to Iraq or Afghanistan. GAH. I don't want to talk about it. Just don't even mention it, okay? Forget I said anything. I'll talk about it later if I need to, but don't count on it. I'm serious...NO COMMENTS about it please!
I'm off to rip out my crochet work and start over. Bye.
