Since You've Been Gone...

That's my Kelly Clarkson shout out. Just for Eddie--- he loves that Kelly!

Eddie's been gone since Oct. 14th, thats over a WEEK ago. He's been driving with his coworker across the US to shoot the next promotional video for SVU, and while they're driving that far on assignment they're shooting stock footage for their company while they're at it. So today, he's finishing up shooting in D.C. and then going up to NYC tonight.

So thats what Eddies up to. Let me tell you what I'm doing.

- I have restarted the knitted headband (below) 6 times.
- I started and finished the below baby booties.
- I've freaked out while showering 3 times because I start thinking about how a murderer could break in and I couldn't even hear it. I'm still figuring out what I would do.
- I've started the process (it should be done early next week) of getting my transmission replaced. I'm surprised my first born child and all arms and legs will make it through this situation. However, I'm thinking it would probably be cheaper to get a prosthetic...
- My student (at Heritage) learned to post the trot! The rest have all got it but one was having a hard time grasping the concept. I finally found a good way to explain it! Im THAT GOOD of a teacher.
-I made it to church on time!
-I got my free bagel (on Friday) from Einstein's, and just because I'm mad at the manager there, I didn't even buy butter! I took my bagel home and put my own damn butter on it, thank you very much. THEY COULD HAVE MADE $.50 OFF ME!

And what I haven't done:
-I haven't had to take out the trash once! I'm not wasteful.
-I haven't really cooked once! Eddie wants the complete meals, I just want cold cereal and Top Raman. And Easy Mac.
-Because of the no cooking, I haven't ran the dish washer once! Love it.
-I haven't really made the bed once! I'm happy with just having in straightened out.

This isn't a complete list. He's still gone for one more week. In that time, I plan to do other things as significant as turning in my HW.

So what have I been doing with all the time saved while not cooking? Well that is a surprise for Eddie, and although he never posts on here, he occasionally reads, and he does have computer access, so I'm not going to tell you. I'll just tell you this: Its good. Real good. I'll post pictures when Eddie has already seen it. Oh wow, I'm looking at it right now, and I just have to say I'M GREAT!

So until his return, I'll just have to rely upon this:

My sister-in-law, Brynn,sent me that. She found that picture on AOL. Thanks Brynn, for sending me that.

Well I'm going to go check the mail. I HATE that task. What comes in the mail? Bills and Geico adds, neither of which I want. And those newspapers that you get guilt tripped into looking for the coupons in because you feel like you should take the time but you aren't really positive its worth the $.25 coupon.

I'm making that headband (below), I really am. I just got side tracked and I had to finish another project. It was a project that had a time limit. So I'll show you what I did.

First point here. Like how I actually tried to make this a good picture? I put it on a white piece of paper to cover up the dingy counter top it was on and laid my knitting needles on there to make it look good. HA! My art director husband would laugh in my face. I then proceeded to take a picture with a very high quality camera-- you know.... the one that comes on your phone. OMG guys, I'm cute.

My friend was having a surprise baby shower (shes having a girl if you weren't sure) and I've been wanting to do this project. So yes, these are my booties that I knitted. You want some don't you? They're THAT darling. I will knit you some custom ones if you'd like for the low price of $12. You just tell me what color you want and what kind of ribbon and I will do it. Just shoot me an email or leave a comment. Loves.

Did Patrick Swayze Die?

My friend, Jenna brought it to my attention that she isn't sure is Patrick Swayze died, so I did a little very confusing research and just so I'm not lying to my readers, I'll try to keep everything clear. According to his wiki page, this man is dead. But according to BumpShack, he's alive. And, guys, these are both very reliable sources.

This is what I'm knitting:

It said it was a pattern for an Advanced Beginner. I decided I qualify as an advanced beginner. The website said it was also a quick and easy pattern, so I though "HEY i'm really into instant gratification!" So I started, expecting it wouldn't take me too long.
Guys, its been almost a week and I've done like 2 inches. Not quick, not easy. Also, my phone just vibrated at me reminding me of some appointment I made, and I have no idea what its talking about. I'm hoping it was an accident....sorry, I just want to make sure that no one expects ANYTHING of me. Man...I hope it wasn't something really important...
