Just wanted to give everyone an update. I have bought the yarn for my cat sweater! I also bought some lace wt yarn for the secret of the stole II KAL. It should be here in 3-5 bus days. I'm quite excited. I am on the leg of the toe up striped sock and about 2 repeats in the feather and fan sock. I know I am prob biting off more than I can chew but when it rains it pours!

Before I got sick I was quite busy. I finished my Jaywalkers! I was able to work on them while waiting for Josh to skydive (which didn't happen due to the weather....) I will attempt to take pics of them today.

I went to the doctor but I am still not really sure what I am sick with. From the meds I was given it is either the common cold or flu or not. hmph! I figured I would take two day s off from work..first one to go to the doc and the second one to get used to codeine dosage. I called in to my boss yesterday to check in and she told me I was not allowed to come in today. I honestly am feeling a lot better (even though I have not eaten anything that will not upset me since sunday). To keep myself from going insane I made two potholders with some of my many balls o cotton.

The last few weeks have been uber crazy! We are now officially moved! We still need to unpack and organize. Knowing me it might be another year before it is completely done (hopefully not...I have been getting better) I still need to go through the stuff in the storage unit and throw more crap away as well as re pack the other crap in to rubber maid plastic totes.

Monday night was a last minute grab and move and vacuum before the cleaning service started on Tuesday. The cleaning crew (one guy....the one who owns the business) was a nice guy cut us a deal I believe and, according to Josh, did an awesome job. After our frantic moving, we went out to mexican food...mmmmmm It was a nice dinner and on the way home we ran into excitement! We spotted a car smoking and stopped to see if they needed help. There was two girls and a guy just standing there..... They did call 911. I noticed fire falling from under the car and Josh and I decided that we needed to get a fire extinguisher. He noted the CVS across the street and the other guy noted the cop in the parking lot (if he saw the cop why didn't he already get him!!!!) So we ran over there got his extinguisher and ran back as the cop followed in his car. Josh started controlling the fire (which was visible now) and another cop pulled up he ran over there got the other extinguisher. By the time the second extinguisher was empty the fire department rolled in and put it out.

I have repicked up my Jaywalkers and I have just started the foot on them! I didn't bring another project with me this week so I will work on those. I also noted there is a knitting grouping meeting tonight across the street from my work site. I think I might stop in there and see what is up.
