Random Tuesday Thoughts: Shout It Out! Or Not….

I rarely take the time to spot-clean my children’s clothes, and I always regret it when I’m folding their stained little shirts. *sigh*

Do you see that picture of my knitting over in the sidebar? Are you wondering how far I am with that project? If I were to take a picture of where I am now, it would look exactly the same. Not because I haven’t been working on it…I have! However, I was unhappy with how it looked after I experimented with some different stitches, and it also had some big holes. So I unraveled it and started over. All in the name of Practice Makes Perfect!

It’s snowing! It’s snowing! I love snow! I’m among the few–don’t look at me like that! I would much rather have a nice, white blanket of snow on the ground than the dead, brown grass. And yes, I do go out to shovel.

I must have cabin fever…I’m writing about laundry, knitting, and snow. Ah, yes, the exciting life and times of a stay-at-home mom. At least some of you get to gripe about work on your blogs. A job makes for nice blogging fodder.

Whew! Just got back from taking Lily to preschool. About three inches and still falling fast…and no plowed roads! At least the parking lot was plowed.

OK, all you East Coasters. Go ahead and tell me: You’ve got it worse! (I agree with you!)

Now go read some more of these:

  1. We've got it worse here in Virginia. Mainly because the 1.5 additional inches we got this morning CLOSED SCHOOL YET AGAIN!! Aughhhhhhhhh!!!Well, at least I have my shovel back! 🙂

  2. I think your knitting project promises to be something way cute! I already love the colors. And you're way farther so far than I ever will be, so stick with it! Can't wait to see the finished product!

  3. I like snow until January and then I beg for it to stop. We got 8 inches yesterday. No plowing yet but at least the kids are in school today.

  4. My family is buried in snow in Pittburgh. I'm happily in the south. You like snow? Really? I've been calling everyone who says that a liar, but you sound sincere…

  5. I love snow too!!! I really dont' like the heat of the summer. But I'm still excited to get OUT of my house once it gets warmer!

  6. Meh, spot cleaning. Children's clothing can always be dyed a nice dark purple or something.(Obviously, I don't spot clean either.)

  7. I'm impressed with your knitting … I have never been able to master it despite being taught three times.And I think being a stay-at-home gives you tons of blog fodder! I mean who has such irrational bosses as us? : )

  8. I am a working woman and lately I have been writing about knitting, cooking and several other fantastically interesting subjects.Glad to hear you're getting into the knitting spirit though. Good luck with your scarf/sweater/baby's blanket…

  9. If you haven't tried Zout on stains yet, I highly recommend. I never used to treat stains until I had to wash a little boy's laundry all the time

  10. I'm impressed. When I do a project, I never stop and do it over when I make a mistake. I am too lazy and impatient. Must be why I have never taken too knitting.

  11. Yes, you must get an outside job so your life is more exciting. Ha. You have a job, lady. It's the most important job of all and some of us envy you! I write about drunk people, the drama of my co-workers, yes, but really…it's more sad than anything else.Spring shall be here soon!

  12. Hey! I'm just wondering how you're doing!? I haven't seen any updates lately, and I'm just hoping things are okay!

  13. i don't spot clean either. i just feel bad about when i hand the clothes down to other little boys. but they will probably leave their own stains.
