What's Going On in My World

1. DramaQueen lost another tooth and says several more are loose.
2. New neighbors moved into the apartment next to us. They have a daughter DramaQueen's age and a son Firecracker's age. What's really nice is that the mom seems really happy that there are kids next door to play with. You'd think that would go without saying, but it doesn't.
3. I have more work than I can do. The powers that be have begun the process to find someone to help. I won't hold my breath.
4. Dear Husband is taking math classes. He has lived in dread of this for a while, but he's actually doing well.
5. I bought hair color on sale.
6. I found knitting classes at a craft store, but I'm not sure we're going to be able to fit this in at the moment. Meanwhile, the other night I had a vision of doing the knit stitch. It was very clear.
7. I want to see V is for Vendetta. Stephen Fry is in it somewhere, and I always like to see Stephen Fry (If you haven't read his book The Liar, I recommend you go out and find it now, just so you can read the part about the discovery and critical reception of a long-lost Dickens manuscript about Victorian rent boys).

  1. Great. I could see the conversation going like this with my wife:

    Jeff says: "Honey, I just don't have enough socks."

    Karen says: "Don't worry honey I just finish sewing 3 more black pairs for you."

    The final question is this: The extra room we have - will it be yarn or Barbie's. Who will win?

  3. I taught myself to knit from a book -- I think The Complete Idiot's Guide to Knitting and Crocheting. (Which made it perfect for me.) If I could do it, so can you!;-)

  5. good luck to your husband for the test! I always hate tests - that's why I'm so glad that I don't have to do that to my students.

  7. lutheranchick--that book sounds about my speed, too.

    girl: Another Stephen Fry fan! I've read The Liar and The Hippopatomus, but that's it. I haven't check to see what else he's written. I like to watch him in the Blackadder series.

  9. The other two novels are 'Making History', (Germany wins WWII), and 'The Stars' Tennis Balls'. Both great.
    Did you see Bright Young Things? I never saw it when it was in theatres but might get it out on DVD - meant to be hilarious, and I'm a sucker for anything with Stephen Fry in it, no matter how small!

  10. There's more coming down. Drama Queen's teeth are on the stage of changing. It's good she has someone to play with. Someone of her age.
