I was a Devil today.And Sean was a Frog. A Tom Arma frog. He wore the entire costume (minus the feet because he kept pulling them off) all day! What a sport.
Today we accompanied my mother to Kingston, Ontario to meet up halfway (between Montreal & Toronto) to drop off Piper my mom's Great Dane with her co-owner. He's going to be showing her in a couple of shows and hopefully getting her all the points for her Championship. Upon my request, we met up in front of Michaels on Gardiners Road. I picked up a few supplies that I needed from Michaels, and then we headed back on the road home. It was 3 hours there and another 3 hours back. That's a lot of driving in 1 day with a 10 month old! He was pretty good on the way there, and just a little bit fussy when he wasn't napping on the way home. Upon leaving, I noticed where the Wool Tyme store was (directly across the street from Michaels), but we didn't have the time to go into it today. Another time. I know where it is now.
Oh. I heart knitting accessories. I could spend hours in this aisle!
Having a 6 hour drive today, I had time to knit. I worked on my Monkeys. I didn't finish Sean's Drive-Thru as I thought I would. I just wasn't into it today. However, the Monkeys... I need to knit more to see, but I'm not sure yet if I like the way it's knitting up in a striping Regia colorway. I am not sure if a more variegated yarn would be better than self-striping. We'll see how it knits along.
On my way home from picking up my car at my parents house, I drive by my new house (getting keys tomorrow!!!) to see if my crescent was into Hallowe'en. NOPE! Every light in that circle was off! I couldn't believe it! It was getting late and Sean was asleep in my backseat, but since all the lights were off, I didn't bother going to meet my new neighbors. I am sure I'll meet them as we move in over the next few weeks. It looks like we'll be booking the movers for the week of the 12th-16th. I am going to have to pack my ass off, because I really want to be in the new place already! Anyhow, the rest of my street (not in the crescent part) had some lights on and decorations for Halloween and some trick-or-treaters in the area, so at least I know that next year, I can hand out candies. I'll dress up Sean next year, and take him to a few houses, but he'll be 22 months old, I don't think at that age he should be eating candies & chocolates yet.
I moved up my housekeeping apointment from Tuesday the 13th until this upcoming Tuesday, so we'll have the new house cleaner, sooner. I also changed Sean's flu shot apointment with his new doctor to two weeks later for the booster instead, because he got his flu shot on Monday when we got his ear infection cleared (I forgot to mention that on Monday). Sean tried the yellow of an egg today, as per direction of his doctor. He made really funny faces while eating each bite, but kept eating more?
I actually started packing tonight. I started in the Den with all the DVDs and stuff on the shelves. There is a lot of things that I'm purging and throwing out, or donating. I have a lot of stuff that collects dust, and I don't want to bring into the new house. I want to see if I can "simplify" my life with less "stuff". However, I've always liked "stuff", so we'll see how much I can actually purge. Very excited to get our keys tomorrow to the new house!One day left to purchase your November Sock Club Kits. This is THE kit that you will regret not getting! Tomorrow night I'll be listing the December Sock Club and letting you know the details on that kit.
