I hope she's ok!

FINALLY got my photobook ordered last night after I had several online chat support help sessions, An email and the "super expediated tech support". At least the CS was A+ but still a super pain!

going over to the docs for preop paperwork and bloodwork this morning. Dipes are washing. Laundry is piling up. Sheets need washing. I'd rather !
No buttons yet and it NEEDS a blocking, and I don't even block most things. Yay for getting your photobook worked out, for bloodwork though.

I did, I'm kind of thinking I should've gone down one size. I read later some people modded the stitches they picked up because it was so ruffly on the edges (it's meant to be kinda ruffly) but IDK.

Vent for this morning! I got an email back from Madtosh from when I reported the errata (finally) and they just said there's no errata and the pattern is fine! They told me to contact Carina (who doesn't have a final version of the pattern). They attached a new copy of the SAME pattern in case I had somehow gotten a faulty one even though they said there's only one copy, and yes I checked and yes the error is STILL on page 10. They make great yarn but their C/S is beyond lacking.

Going to make myself some tea and swatch for these longies. I'm down FIVE POUNDS in water weight from yesterday.

Yes, Karyn, they'll be paying me more for feeding him dinner, but not sure about textra time pay, because he'll probably be here 8-6. Even though thats 10 hours, that was the worst case scenario we agreed to at the beginning.

As long as you don't let them bite each other. And, I'm sure what exactly I'm trying to say here. But, since you are a home daycare, and there are only 2 kids, I would kinda expect you would get some time to yourself and be able to do that. But, if you are working at a daycare then, I don't think you should have personal time like that.

I think most daycares have multiple workers to cover breaktimes. Pi's good daycare had 3 workers, and when the kids that would nap had naptimes, they could rotate long lunch breaks etc.

TY. I usually pick up trim w/smaller needles, that's why I asked. I don't really envision it as a ruffle edge. I think I will go down a size.

CS makes or breaks a deal for me...that sucks! I'll have to say that Picaboo did have great CS, I would recommend it for a great deal but for me, the time sink is not worth the good CS in this case.

Thank goodness for the wt loss, I was getting worried, that could not continue. Did you call the midwives yet? And sorry about the coffee

hhmm...I hope they are generous since you are really helping them out here.

YES! JMHO of course

lab work done, stopped at gf's to pay her back since I forgot when I saw her yesterday and at Walmart for a few things I didn't know we were out of.

Zaney is going bonkers...I think he may just wait on the porch for the power rangers suit to get here. I hope it really does come today.

time for pbJ sammies and some laundry.
