what to do when facebook is down...

Well, facebook won't let me in, and I had to find something else to do online. So I just spent my credit (see this post--darn i-cord machine!). I ordered this:

I hope it's good. Elizabeth hasn't let me down yet!

Three more months!!!!

Canada Student loan. 1999-Oct 2007. RIP

Yes, my student loan will finally be paid off in October. I've been carrying that baby around for a loooooong time now, and will miss it when it's gone. Not.

Also, from the weekend (House Man's weekend, not my weekend--mine wasn't this exciting!):

"Look ma, no hands!"

Well, it's been a while since I've posted anything. I don't really have anything to post now either. For those of you without school age kids (but especially those of you with school age kids but who haven't heard about it), it's Summer Reading time at the library, and that means busy. If you read Mrs. Yes's post, you'll see the sort of thing we've been up to at the library lately. Apart from the carnival, we had a Teddy Bear's Picnic the week before, and have registered a few hundred kids for summer reading. Including my very own Boy, who has chosen 20 books as his goal for House Man and he to read together this summer.

We went to visit Mrs Happy at the yarn store last week (or was it two weeks ago?). When we walked in, The Boy found Mrs. Happy and immediately asked if Henry was around. He then proceeded to help customers make colour selections (I think the customer was happy with The Boy's colour choices!). When he asked me which basket Grace had played with (scroll down about halfway), I should have known what was coming. We had an instant replay of the whole yarn-on-floor-basket-on-head thing that Grace has perfected. Sadly, no camera with me. I need to learn to travel with my camera!

Anyway, there hasn't been much knitting going on around here, to be honest. Sore back (gone now), sick boy (seems better now) and lots of evening shifts for the House Man (with more coming next week!) have all conspired to create very little knitting time. And I've been Boy-wrangling all weekend, while House Man was here, racing a borrowed one of these. He's not back yet, so we're waiting to find out how it went.

I now have a $23 US credit sitting at Any suggestions for how to spend it?

Pictures later, I promise. Well, maybe, if I can remember to take the camera with me...

In the meantime, here's an old one:
