Tuesday Stuff

Another night of no sleep. I don't know exactly why. I should be sleeping better. We put a new air conditioner in the bedroom window and ever since I haven't been able to sleep. I think I'm just one of those people who likes to be warm and now it's too cold in there for me. My husband will tell you I'm never happy with the temperature. Last night I came home so exhausted that I didn't knit a stitch. Now THAT'S exhausted. I thought I'd sleep like a baby. Nope.

Tonight is knitting night. I guess I'll work on Colin's other highland knee sock. I'm finally, hopefully, going to buy the yarn that I've been wanting from Shelly if she still has it...photos tomorrow. She spins and dyes some awesome yarn.

This is my only subscription. They caught me at a week moment.
I have to say there are some good tutorials in this magazine but the patterns are less than stellar. There is one little girl's sweater in this issue that is sort of cute though.

I watched Super Nanny last night for the third time. It is fascinating. I'm fascinated that there are people who agree to have their dysfunction (in MAJOR proportions) televised on national tv.
Man, these kids are out of control and the only reason that happens is because the parents let them get that way. But, on the other hand, they are doing something about it which is good. That nanny is pretty sharp for as young as she is. I just have to wonder though how long the good behavior lasts after she's gone. It would be very difficult not to lapse back into the old routine after she's long gone. That mother from the show last night could use some counseling herself. Totally OCD. But I thought she was trying (at least for the time being) to change.

Off to a sales meeting... have a great knitting day.
