So I get a call from my husband this morning and he tells me that he has to fly to Los Angeles TODAY for work. First, my mind is upset because he gets to be a bachelor for 5 days. Not only that, he is a bachelor in LA! And he gets to eat at Taco Bell, and see old friends, oh yeah, he has to work, but still!!! And then he calls again demanding that I wash some clothes for him. Yeah, uh huh. And then he comes home to pack and then tells me that he has to go to CBS studios and is going to be in Burbank the whole time through the weekend because it’s cheaper for the company to stay overnight on Saturday. Gah, that bastard!!! OK, yes, harsh words, but I am so envious!
This week we have so much going on too. We have a parent-teacher conference with the preschool today, on Friday I have a big photo shoot to do (5 toddlers/4 mothers – nightmare!) and was counting on him to help me set up, and Thursday night we have a friend from Italy staying over and on Monday is our 19th anniversary!!!!! GAH!!!! He’ll be back by then (I think) and he better bring me back a good fibery present or I’m going to be so mad. OK, I’m not, and I probably sound like a raving lunatic, but I think that this has just never happened before. Usually he has a few weeks of warning and we can kind of prepare. But he was just whisked away and I feel so… lonely.
Anyways, enough about my jealous rant. I’ll include my latest spinning FO’s. They are both from All Spun Up. The yellowey one is the Spin-A-Long fiber and it was ok. I’m not a fan of extrafine merino, but it was still nice. Very nicely prepared. The other one is merino/bamboo and it was so wonderful to spin. It’s like there is some silver in there – it’s so shiny! I will certainly buy more!!!
I have also been doing a little knitting. I’ve been trying to motivate myself to knit on the Candle Flame shawl for my sister-in-law, but hell, I really am wishing I didn’t choose laceweight. But at the time, I had no other options. I’m maybe 1/2way done. I also started some Endpaper Mitts but thinking of frogging because my gauge is so loose. Argh!
With husband gone, I will probably get LOTS of spinning/knitting done! :) I guess that’s the good part. Heh.
