Waiting for my invite

So a month ago, I learned about Ravelry. I went to their site to join, and like all other people was put on the invitation list. I now after a month have about 8000 people ahead of me, and 8000 people behind me. I am hoping to have my invitation in a week. Of course, I am excited to check this site out, but am now begining to wonder if I will be let down. I am sure it will be a good resource for me and my knitting hobby. But, will it be as great as I am hearing it is. Only time will tell. TTFN, Miki

Crazy Woman

After receiving a VERY rude email from one of my cheer moms, I need an outlet to vent. My husband doesn't want to hear it. I don't want to get in a pissing match with her and give her real ammo to take to the board over, so I will rant here. Anyhow long story short, this is a woman who I have to deal with a lot. We have participated in MANY things with her child, and she always seems to have a problem with me and my handling of things. This time she accused me of things I had nothing to do with and to singleing her child out. I began to type a LONG response to her and then decided against it and called the commisioner instead. She agreed that I should not respond, but to deal with her face to face if it came to that. Which, I am sure it will. Lord please give me the strength to stay calm with her tonight. The commishoner then told me that the same woman had complained to her last week about something else, which we remedey unbeknownst to us, and she complained to me about the remedy. This woman second guesses EVERYTHING I do, and totally coddles her child. PLEASE! TTFN, Miki

The start of a new era

Today was the beginning of something new for our family. My older kids started middle school. Their sphere of influence has grown. They are now around kids that aren't from our small little community. They are in school with teenagers. They also have to get out of bed 2 hours earlier than they did last year. Yes, middle school starts 2 hours earlier than grade school. I think this is totally crazy. They did fine with it of course.

All in all they had a good day. I for the life of me can't figure out their schedule. That may be because some of their classes are every other day, but on their schedule it says they are every day. Do they not know how to limit the days listed? Please!

The other two kids also started grades school today. The too had a good day and are looking forward to the rest of the year.

Sorry for not blogging in awhile. We vacationed in July, and then came back to Football and Cheer. I was named as a cheer Sponsor (adult coach). So literally we have practiced in one way or another every day except Sundays in August. I love this time of year, but would like a little more me time.

I haven't been knitting much as it has been too hot. I am trying now to finish up some socks for me in Ray's Blue Jeans colorway. They are almost done. As soon as they are finished I will finish the toes on my hubby's socks that are done in the Austermann Step. I FINALLY got the new skein of yarn to finish the toes so the stripes would match. Yes I am that anal. When they are done I will post the finished product. Oh I also did the Coachella top from Knitty summer. I chose the color Nelly Belle in the recommended yarn which was Berocco Suede. I just LOVE the names of their colors for this yarn. I like how it turned out, but think maybe I should have made the top a size smaller. It has a cowl neck and I keep thinking I am flashing everyone just because I can see it all. Of course at times I may be. Hmmm! Anyhow I will try to post a photo of that also. TTFN, Miki
