Back to work

So I survived Spring Break. It was actually pretty nice. Got to sleep in a bit while the kids played nicely with each other for about 45 minutes. Now I'm gearing up for two trips.

The kids are going with Auntie to PA this weekend. Not only do I have to pack for both of them, I also have to pack warm and cool weather clothing cuz they're gonna be on a mountain. Not at the top, but high enough where the temp drops 20 degrees when the sun goes down. My aunt has been taking DS for years. This will be the first time she takes DD. Let's hope it won't be the last.

Trip number two is my trip to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival weekend after next. Just me and J. I'm packing good shoes and an extra bag to bring home swag and other goodies. And booze. I'm thinkin they're gonna up the local prices cuz there's a big event in town. Don't want a lot, but JIC.

Spring Break

So DS is home for spring break. DD is ecstatic to have her big brother home during the day, and DS is having fun playing with her and getting more computer time.

Yesterday, Auntie took him to see Hop. He says it was great. I think his favorite part was going to McDonald's after. Later today I'm going to show him how to use the potholder loom, and we're just gonna hang out here and watch movies. Tomorrow it's an afternoon at Nana's while I go and get my first mammogram.

In a little less than 2 weeks I'll be heading to Maryland for the Sheep and Wool Festival. REally looking forward to it and spending time with my friend J. And ogling some yummy yarn.

Trying to be healthy is bad for my health

Went to Sourland Mountain with DS's scout pack. Contrary to the brochure, the easy level Pond Trail was too difficult for me. After giving a jump to a nice, athletic-looking couple, they told me to stick to the parking lot based on my (lack of) ability on a bike. So while in the lot, a car comes speeding in. I squeeze the back brake and start skidding on the loose gravel. BAM! I twist my knee, which was in horrible shape to begin with. So I pack up and go back to the car and knit til the boys get back. Hopefully I'll be ok tomorrow so I can go out on my new bike and enjoy the gorgeous day.
