Happy Birthday to Me!

We made it! We stopped over first in Mississippi and then again in Dallas. We got to San Antonio on Wednesday. It's pretty hot. The accommodations are nice. Free wireless, but only in the lobby. So that means no blog checking in my PJs. We've got a living room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. There are two TVs and pots, pans, dishes and utensils. Oh, and free laundry facilities. Not to mention the playground is within sight of the room so I can't complain.

As my title reads, today is my birthday. Im 32 my children like to keep reminding me at the top of their lungs. I made out pretty well so far~I got an iPod Nano and a bottle of Baileys (my favorite booze. I mean really, you can mix it in hot chocolate, coffee, make milkshakes with it or drink it straight. What's not to love??). Jaylen calls it 'drunk' and is saying, 'Mommy got drunk for her birthday'. Maybe he's on to something...

The iPod is a little scary just because it's so tiny. I need to knit it a day glo orange cover or something. And learn how to use it ;o)

I swear to you guys this is still a knitting blog. There is some knitting going on, but it's been hard because the baby sleeps with us and once everyone is asleep there's really no where to go to turn a light on. I actually knit on my Honeymoon Cami for about an hour last night by the light of the TV. Never fear though, once I get it together with my new knitting group I'll get back into the grove. DH says I'm starting to have knit group withdrawls! Ha!

Ok, I need to get back to the room and see what's up for the day!

A little math for you

GA in June + no central AC = crucial business.

It's hot people. My hair is a frizzy mess and forget makeup...even mascara will slide off your eyelashes. I took the baby to the mall yesterday in search of some central air...oh, and bought myself some new clothes in hope of looking less like a sweaty, makeup~less frump.

The boys are having a blast! Ripping and running from sun up to sundown. Isaiah is not sure about all these strange people that keep trying to snatch him up. Poor kid has been hearing, 'but I'm your (auntie, uncle, cousin...fill in the blank)!!' since we got here.

The plan was to have some knitting pictures. One sock down and one to go. But of course it's all cloudy and threatening rain outside today. At least it's cooled off a bit! Maybe I can sit outside and knit without melting. Anyhow, I'll have pictures before the week is out.

People keep asking me how I'm going to survive in TX if the heat is killing me now. Well I'm not quite sure but I do know we'll have central air*!

*in my brother-in-law's defense this is an older house. He and my sister-in-law are in the process of buying a newer home...with central air :o)

One day down...

three more to go.

We survived day one. All our stuff is packed and ready for pick up tomorrow. We're in the hotel and I'm enjoying the free wireless internet access! We hit a little snag when the first suite we were given was *smoking* but now we're breathing clean air in a new room so it's all good.

Got to work on my springtime socks today while the movers were packing us up, and the plan is to take a shower and knit some more after the rugrats are asleep.

Tomorrow, day two...the pick up. Wednesday is the day I'm least looking foward to~the clean up. But it will feel so good on Thursday to hand over the house keys to the to the inspector (we live on a military base) and not have to worry about it any longer!

I'm going to get ready to knit now :o)

So tired!

Well the time has finally come. The movers will be here tomorrow! We've been consolidating crappage all week. Laundry all day today. Do you know how hard it is to project what we all will need for the next 3 months (our house won't be ready until around the end of August so we'll be in a hotel) or so? We've got a 'no pack room' with clothes, toys and other essentials including of course YARN! I've got one of those huge ziplocks full and some books. Should keep me busy for a minute.

We'll be in town for another week until school is out. Then it's on to GA to visit family before heading off to TX. I can't wait until the end of next week when the actual 'moving' is over and I can relax a bit. Maybe even knit??

I want to say thanks to everyone for reading here and leaving such nice comments! I'll still be blogging during the move even if my internet access isn't what it is now.

Happy June everyone! I've even got blue toes to commemorate this month's Project Spectrum color :o)
