I've had a whirlwind of a week. Last week, I finally finished my second sock in my first ever pair of socks (pics of all my goodies to follow very, very soon) and immediatly cast on with my Schaefer Heather yarn for my second pair of socks. I started on the 20th, whatever day that was, I'm lost at this point and don't have a calender in front of me, and 6 days later I'm 3/4 of the way done the first sock in the pair. So I'm incerdibly excited about that! What I'm even more excited about was a package I recieved today from Jimmy Beans Wool NORO SOCK YARN!!!!!! Sooooo Pretty, it seriously Rocks yer moms face off!!!!! I ordered up colorway 95 and 185 they were on sale for $13.30 each skein. Not only am I crazy excited to have these, they got here SUPER QUCIK! As I'm in NJ, and they're in NV and I ordered on Friday afternoon, here it is Tuesday and they're in my hot little hands! I might just have to get more for some Holiday Knitting (or just to fondle and drool over).

It's 10:27am on a Saturday. I'm in my office, tired, feeling beat up by the world. I didn't fall asleep last night (this morning) until almost 5, because of the pain in my back and the fact that no matter what i did, or what pain meds i took, i couldn't get comfy. I've been up since 8.. you do the math. I'm fussy as can be, not in the mood to be here, not in the mood to do anything. If it wasn't for the promise of a massage for my aching back, I would tell the Boy to stay home today and come visit tomorrow.
I'm beginning to think I might be the worst blogger ever. I've been a grumpy camper as of late, my back is out yet again and being even remotely comfortable seems like just a dream. The only place I'm actually feeling somewhat alright is when I'm stuck in bed on my back on a heating pad. Not very practical for getting anything done that I wish to get done. This most recent pain in the back started last Sunday, so it's been 6 long days of discomfort, at least I'm somewhat mobile this go around. The only good part of being bed bound for so much of the day (whenever I haven't been at work) is that I've gotten plenty of reading in and have almost completed my second sock of my first pair of knitted socks ever. I have to work tomorrow then hang with the Boy for the rest of Saturday and Sunday. I'm hoping he's up for a very low key weekend, oh and maybe a massage. I'm off to Lather, rinse and hopefully sleep.
