and my mothers too !! She is a sewer and growing up she always tried to replicate the "cool" clothes I wanted and I never quite took to them the way she hoped I would.

Let's see...I made the hubby a pair of socks (after he begged for months) and "they're awful bulky", made him a scarf "well, I thought it be more like...." then made him another scarf that appears to be perfection and "well, it's a warm winter I really don't need it."
And as for pants size ... good heavens my size changes daily and with the brand and color of pants I buy. Seriously, I have 3 different sizes from NY&Co that all fit the same. Women's sizes are a crock. Go by how wonderful you look in the mirror :muah:

My turn!
Good news: The new allergy meds seem to be working better than the old allergy meds

Bad news: I still can't breathe and the new allergy meds make me groggy

Good news: I was able to take a nap while the kids played mostly quietly this afternoon

Bad news: I still have dishes and laundry to do

Good news: I had just enough money to pay all my bills this month so that I will be ahead in another week and a half

Bad news: I had just enough money to pay all my bills this month so I have very little left for the next week and a half. Now I'll have to dip into my "fun money" for groceries on Sunday and will have to make half a tank of gas last for another week and a half

Hilde, I'm with you. Mine are finally growing out too!

I'll have to admit that these are making me laugh. Good to see we all have a sense of humor. :teehee:

Women's sizes are a crock.

Boy, that's the truth. One store, you're one size, another store, you're 2 sizes bigger.

This is fun! My turn

Good news:
Boyfriend will be working on Saturday so will be out of my hair all day!

Bad News:
He is dropping his car off to be inspected Friday night, so will have to take mine to work on Saturday, which means I won't be able to go to the yarn store.

Good News:
While he has my car, he will be getting the oil changed for me.

Bad News:
Bent down to tie my shoe this morning, and split my JEANS wide open.

Good News:
I finally got a tread mill a few months ago, and it works great.

Bad News:
I already broke my New Years Resolution to get into shape and haven't used the treadmill since January. Otherwise I probably would not have split my jeans open.

Good News:
I finally finished the baby blanket I was making for a friend.

Extremely Bad News:
We found out at work today, that one of our co-workers has terminal cancer and only has a few weeks left. I was just talking and laughing with her two weeks ago right before her doctor appointment. It is in her bones, liver and most other organs. She is one of the nicest people I have ever met. I can't believe she won't be back.

Good news, but not really:
She is going fast, and won't have to suffer long. :verysad:

Wow.. sorry to put a damper on the good news/bad news game... I've been trying not to cry all day, and am starting to lose it.
