Strand of Purls in Hickory!!
Hi!!
Laura and her DH and sister welcomed my DD, DS and myself this p.m. The shop is so inviting!! Laura has a designer's eye which is evident in her shop. It is spacious yet warm. there's a seating area where you can be curl up on the sofa...comfortably browsing the patterns and knitting books. Another area with a large table and comfy chairs where you can sit and knit and gab.. She has a great selection of yarns and notions including some terrific knitting bags, needle carriers, books. It was only 1 hour or less from Charlotte.. and if you head up Hwy 321 there's not too much traffic!!!

We missed Shandeh!! She was groggy after her early a.m. airport trip and helping her DH pack...

Well knitters NC has another great yarn shop where the welcome mat is out!! Thanks Laura and Brian..a beautiful place to gather and be!!!

I was DEFINITELY groggy!
I don't know what came over me. It was weird. I wonder if someone spiked my coffee this morning.

Anyway, long story short, I didn't get to go to the get-together! I'm sorry Laura and Doodknitwit!

Last night, I was up until 3 AM, helping my hubby pack for Vegas, and we had to get up at 5:30 this morning. We went to the airport for him to catch his flight, and I finally got home at 9 AM. Next, I had my breakfast, checked email, then went back to bed. I set my alarm for 11 AM, and put the phone beside the bed in case my hubby called.

My phone kept ringing from stupid bill collectors. Then, my alarm started ringing. I kept hitting the snooze button, and was in a complete fog.

I continued hitting the snooze over and over again, in a dream state....finally waking completely at 1:30!!!! I still felt absolutely miserable. Probably from sleeping in 7 minute intervals for the past 2 hours!

So, I called Doodknitwit to apologize. Then, my hubby called to say he landed in Vegas. Then I put the phone in the room across the hall, and closed that door. Next, I closed my bedroom door and laid back down....THIS time with the alarm turned off.

I ended up sleeping until 6:30 PM!!
I guess I really needed the rest.

So, I apologize for missing the meetup. What a bummer!

Next time, I won't schedule ANYTHING else on the day we plan.

I have been a MESS today. I found out this AM that Samanta was injected with the recalled HIB vax last Wednesday. I have been so sick over this.

We were delaying her vaxs and the HIB I had down for her 6 month visit but decided to do it now just to save us some money. (we are short about a grand for our mortgage this month. money is so f'ing tight)

I'm so pissed at myself it's not even funny.
