Picked grandkids up after work from daycare (their mother works til 6:30 and dad is on evening shift for 2 weeks and I pick them up during that time) so I didn't have time to knit. BUT I brought today and will knit at lunch. ahhhh. I look forward to that hour of solitude!
I can't wait to TOUCH the yarn again. :lol:
How is everyone?
I'm afraid I woke late and was 15 min late to work. :shock:
I must have shut the alarm off or slept thru it. Our poor puppy had to miss that little time I play with him of a morning. He didn't care tho, as he was heading toward his breakfast and knew there was a treat to uncover in his bowl :lol:

*Laughs* WE should create a Forum just for topics like this.. and Tigger would rule.. the "Good Moring" Forum *laughs*

I'm cold and tired.. :( Yesterday wa sa long day for me and I won't be able to knit for probably about 2.5 weeks coming up..

But other than that.. I'm doing SUPER :)

You are close to us (Iowa).. man the crap is blowing out there.. 29degrees with a -2 windchill.. I hate wind in winter unless.. there's lots of snow.. the sun is out and it's not 30 MPH winds.. :)

Good morning Tiggs!!!

We're not that cold but we did have a storm/front last night that took us from 68 yesterday afternoon to 47 right now. We've been having a couple weeks now of above normal temps.

I did get to knit last night and finished presents for my Dad and his wife...hat and scarf. I'm starting to get this hat thing down and it is so satisfying...cast on after dinner and cast off before bed. Hard to believe.

It might make it less fun...but you could treat it as something on your "to do" list. Just knit for 10 mins? Of course, even that might not help because when the baby is ready, it's going to come whether it has a toasty knit blanket or not!

i know, I always liked the surprise of not knowing. We were given the opportunity when pregnant with our youngest daughter (who is the one having the baby now) but we opted not to know.
But I was with brandi and michael when the ultrasound was done and we found out it she was having a girl and I just boohooed all over the place in pure joy, just a proud grandma!!
:inlove: :inlove: :inlove:

NO NO NO, it's a word you'll treasure!!!
AND the best things about grandchildren, you play with them and have fun and then send home! :D
you get all the loving and joy.
My grandkids call me "ma" cause when our grandson was a baby, he couldn't say grandma, but he was calling his other grandmother 'nana' just fine. Finally out of desperation, I said, say ma and he did. LOL.
after that it was ma this ma that, and it stuck.
:cheering: :cheering: :cheering:

I'm new, can I jump in?

I have two sons, 3.5 years and 16 months. My dad is here with them right now, he hasn't seen them since the youngest was born, and they are having a BLAST! he riles them up to a frenzy right before bed, tickles them all the time, the kind of things you always hoped your kids would have in a grandparent. He leaves today and they will miss him terribly but I am so grateful my kids have such loving, fun grandparents. They call him Papa, my mom is Grandma Dee and dh's parents are just GrandmaGrandpa-as in, either one is called GrandmaGrandpa :D

The wind chill makes it 33 right now, but it is early and should warm up to a balmy 44 or so. Well, my oldest woke up in the middle of the night throwing up, just like his brother did the night before. But yesterday I had bravely started some mittens for R (my 1 year old) so I got to get out of bed and knit some more! Gotta look on the bright side, right? The second one is going way faster than the first and I am glad I decided to laugh in the face of my mortal fear of dpn's! HAHAHA, who's the sucka now?

HEY JULIE!!!! welcome and please enter any discussions.
Oh, your little ones sound soooo precious. what perfect ages.
I'm sorry they were sick. there's something intestinal going round here also.
LOL that's cute they use both names! my grandson called me papa when he was a baby. LOL. i was so glad when he finally managed to call me ma.
my grandchildren are precious jewels.
7 and 2. another one is about to be born, to our younger daughter, and we are so excited. can't wait to meet her in person.
