Re: THANKSGIVING! KAL ~ Nov 18-24

Yuck for busy and bad starts to the day.

Getting work done so far. 2 loads of laundry done so far and work is not loading. OH well, I'll just have to work on a leg of some longies while I watch the little non-loading circle of doom.

Mindy- gorgeous yarn!!!

DH is off all week. We dropped B off at preschool this morning and then went and put toys on layaway at Walmart... His silly job gave them their raises less than usual and said they considered the Christmas bonus as part of it, but then they went and reduced his bonus too...

I'm trying to finish mittens today. I got very little done yesterday nursing a hangover

I would be a little upset too. How mad was he that you made him fix it. I know Butch is getting a little sick of riding backwards, but he'll be that way for a while yet.

Re: THANKSGIVING! KAL ~ Nov 18-24

I'm going to try and switch it back today. He did say that he "tried" but it wouldn't fit. Which I really don't doubt because the thing is a beast and barely fit in the suburban

The first seat I bought Pixie only fit in my Jeep FF, I had to put it RF in DH's car and buy a MyRide 65 for the Jeep. I know Liberties can be weird, lesson learned I guess for next baby. I'll probably have to flip her FF when she's around 3 just to get all 3 seats to fit

Why do you get your nice warm bed for 5 days? That sounds amazing.

sounds like a plan, it will have to be an "in the background KAL" cuz I know that will take me a while for sure. Its got lotsa "boring" after the yoke.

Getting ready for camping in the cold. It was 59 this morning which was cold for us, 20 degrees less will be brutal for me...I know Fi, you guys walk around in shorts in that weather

I'm washing all the linens in an effort to come home to a tidy house. I am going to look up good campfire meals in a bit. Luckily we only have to eat for one day.
