Outta here

I'm confused. I've been drinking. I think I'll go to bed. I am sure that will make everything better. I wonder how many sentences I can start with I......

I <3 TJ Flats

It has been a long week to say the least. We are about halfway done with our well installs. The rig broke down the other day. So it was a short day. I was able to go back to tampa to attend a wake. That was really hard. I think I cried more than most ppl there. I dont know why but I couldn't help myself. The wake was for the son of my coworker. That was my first time meeting his family. Since I was in town I stayed the night. Puppy was so happy to see me. He cuddled next to me ALL night long and didn't throw himself around. So that was good. Four more days to go before I get to go back home.

Well I think I am going to go to bed early tonight!

The first of ten

Well I am chillin here in my room. Didn't really feel like going out to eat tonight so I ordered a pizza. I got the new garlic bread pizza thing from dominos. I thought it was going to be a normal pizza with a bit more garlic on it. Well noob took my order. And it took him a while. Got my card number wrong 3 times. When I say something like 3 8 I do not mean three 8's....
Well I got my food and the pizza wasn't cut!! EKK so I got to tear it all apart. I also noticed it didn't have any sauce in it. Isn't it suppose to have sauce!!!! So not so good....good thing I got kickers as a backup!

Finally I got my kitchen towel done. It has just been so busy at work that I haven't had the time to work with it. Last week was a little slower so I did most of it in one night.

oh so soft

New Yarn - limenviolet, originally uploaded by knitsnbits.

This is the room with a view yarn I got from limenviolet. It is oh so soft. I am not sure what I am going to do with it right now. Josh even approves of it because of its softness. I should it to him and his first reaction pink.....but of course I made him feel it and it went from meh to ooooh! tee hee


Here is my fleece artist yarn on top and my mountain colors on the bottom.

btw I am testing out this blog the picture lets see if I can get more than one pic on a post. That would make my life a lot easier.

New yarn!

So I have been horrible. I have been on a sock yarn buying spree! My latest purchase was limenviolet's room with a view. I have to get a picture up here soon. Once I have a day off I will try to upload all the pictures.

I got a little cold so I am trying to get over that. The rest of this week I will be out in the field working. I think tonight will be an early night for me.

Hope everyone has a great valentines day!
