september twenty-eight :: 21 months old

Last night I finally finished reading Beyond Stitch & Bitch by Afi-Odelia Scruggs. I really enjoyed it. It had a lot of history on knitting in it - and reflections on knitting & life. There were 3 patterns or so in the book, but nothing that I would really knit.

Last night was fabulous. I put Mack in his crib sometime around 10-10:15 pm. He slept until 6 am in the crib. I am so happy and impressed. It's fabulous. We may have an easy transition from the swing sleeping to the crib. This makes me one happy mama!

Sean is 21 months old today.
3 months left until his 2nd birthday.
That means there is just under 3 months left until Xmas. (3 days before his bday!)

21 months old with Mommy & Auntie Amy.

I got a haircut today. I love it. It feels good. I hope it looks as good after I wash it and style it myself. Crossing my fingers. Sometimes it just doesn't work out the way the stylist did it!

Totally love my new 'do. It was a must need. I really needed to get rid of my split ends, and I really don't have time to "do" my hair. Just to show you how much I cut off, this is what my hair length was.

I also decided to wear my contacts for the first time since my pregnancy with Sean. I used to wear them everyday. I used to not be able to leave the house without them in. But being pregnant (your eye sight can change) and working in front of a computer for like 12-14 hours a day while in Graphic Design School in an intensive 1 year program can kill your eyes, and I started getting head aches while wearing my contacts. NOT GOOD! So I stopped wearing them. Felt like trying them out again today.... so far... so good!

This evening we had dinner at my parents house, and I got some knitting done today on the October Sock Club Kit pattern. It's just about done. The kits will be going out mid-month on schedule. They are still on sale until Tuesday night, Sept 30th. It's a smokin' fun colorway, so get your hands on it while you can!

Has anyone ever had to kick someone out of their playgroup? If so, how did you do it? We want to tell a girl to not come anymore, (I don't even care being the one to tell her, I won't lose sleep over her not talking to me anymore), but how do we tell her? Her son is colicky, doesn't stop crying every playgroup, she talks about her son's bowel movements (and takes pictures of it yet too, which she wanted to show us, wtf?!) and all the stories that come out of her mouth are not so pleasant (like she talks in detail about her menstrual cycle - uhm... we don't want to know that information!) We want to kick her out. Is there a nice way to do it? We all find her annoying, and we're not really sure how she ended up in playgroup to begin with....

Off to go fold even more laundry (I think I did about a hundred loads tonight. Does the laundry ever end?)

For a few years inthe 70s I went to a "stylist" who always had me leaving the shop looking like a dandilion. She just wasn't used to working on guys and always inssited on blow drying and lots of product. But I wouldn't go to anyone else because after I got home and washed all the "fluffy" out of my hair the cut was perfect. I think your cut looks good in the pics, it's a nice length for you.

I love the new hair!

The haircut does look super cute. You defintiely wear it well.

As far as the chick in the playgroup...just tell her, look not for nothing you share entirely too much. TMI. And it is offensive. So unfortunately we are asking you to leave the group.
Be upfront and honest. And if she doesn't leave, meet elsewhere or something for playgroup. Ditch the nasty...

Being that girl in the play group, it sure would have been nice if someone had taken me under her wing and explained that those topics were TMI.

Some of us just don't have the hard wiring to understand those things, but often if someones helps us learn we get to be good and faithful friends that are a bit weird.

What a cute haircut girlie!! Very Sassy! And contacts to boot! YOU GO GIRL!!! Looking good as a momma of two!! ;)

As for the girl in the play group. Ack, hard decision. What about an anonymous letter. :o) That way no one feels they are being the bad guy to her.

Love your new 'do!! It totally suits you!!

ScrapHappy said...

Change the date/time/place and don't tell her. ;)
Or have someone pinch her kid.
Just kidding. Have straight-up convo where you tell her that what she's talking about isn't appropriate. Maybe that would work?

LOVE the hair!
