Okay, let’s face it, there has been enough bad and ugly in my life the last week or so. This post is all about Good Things. Good: As you may recall, before I had that Life Changing Thing happen, I finished the Adamas Shawl. I blocked it one day last week (it’s sort of a…
I know, I know, it’s only been a week since the last Good, Bad & Ugly post but, honestly, other than Good, Bad, & Ugly, I’ve got nothing. Nada. And I’m too cranky to try and come up with something else that’s clever or witty or even remotely entertaining. So, this is what you’re getting. Sorry.
Good: Hannah is home from New York. She had a wonderful time and was bursting with stuff to tell us. Thanks again for all your encouraging words of support during this little trip. Feel free to tell me all of your school trip horror stories now.
Bad: The boy that liked Hannah apparently doesn’t like her anymore. (While this is a bad thing to Hannah, I can’t help but be relieved. Sorry, Hannah.)
Ugly: Hannah called her sister, Jessica, to discuss the woes related to the boy. Not me. Her mother. And I’m sure this is just the start of things she won’t talk to me about. Waaah.
Good: Wicked. It was wicked good. If you live in the Boston area and you can get your hands on some tickets – GO.
Bad: People bringing children to see this show. While it may be the untold story of the Witches of Oz, and therefore loosely based on The Wizard of Oz, this is not a performance intended for children.
Good: The second wedding of one of my dearest friends. Linda, the bride, and Tracy, the other woman in this photo, and I have been friends since high school. Linda’s first husband was a real ass and I’m so happy she’s found a wonderful guy for her second go.
Good: Blue Cross approved a Zyrtec prescription for me.
Bad: The paperwork hasn’t come through yet so I still don’t have allergy relief.
Good: Mim’s Seraphim Shawl pattern. It’s easy but very pretty.
Bad: Running out of yarn. This is my own fault for not using the recommended yarn weight but it’s still a bad thing.
Ugly: While Robyn at Red Bird Knits is able to get the yarn for me, it’s going to take 4 weeks or more. And, of course, this will make my $45 shawl a $90 shawl.
Good: To Do Lists. I love To Do Lists. I love finishing something and crossing it off. The sense of accomplishment I get at that moment makes me giddy.
Bad: Honey Do Lists. These are the lists I give to the hubbo for him to accomplish. The things on these lists generally get started but not often finished. Or, at least not finished according to my time frame.
Ugly: My reaction to the unfinished Honey Do Lists. You see, the major item on the list is to paint and wallpaper the room that we reorganized a few months ago. Painting is Dale’s thing but wallpapering is something we need to do together. However, Dale is behind schedule and the room isn’t ready for wallpaper yet. This means that I won’t be able to go to WEBS on Saturday and see Stephanie. Shouldn’t it also mean that Dale doesn’t get to go to a Civil War monument re-dedication on Friday? Shouldn’t both worker bees have to make sacrifices for the cause? You’d be correct if you surmised that this is the cause of my previously mentioned crankiness.
Good: Because I must end on a good note, some sky for Sandy.
