And she said: “Let there be gifts”

3 May

Since I am no longer knitting my super awesome (not!) Mothers Day gift sweater for my mama, I bought her gift online today.  CHECK.  Now, I just have to finish her wool cabled purse that I started last May (via plane en route to Atlantis in the Bahamas) and it is still a WIP  ugh.  I just HATE this bag.  I don’t like the wool with a rattan wrapped handle and I don’t like that she wants this for the summer.  It’s just all wrong.  Anyway, I just have to sew the handle on and finish up the lining on the top of the bag.  (You can see my cable mistake in my braid.  Stupid me.  But I’m not undoing it all.  My mom will appreciate it.  Besides, I made this a year ago)Image

I also just purchased my Mother in Law’s gift for Mothers Day today online as well.  CHECK.  

Today seems to be the day when I pay my bills.  I also have a gazillion bills that came in that are close to late or late from when my son was rushed to the hospital for his asthma in March.  Damnit, I thought insurance was supposed to cover those bills.  I probably have close to $1000 in medical bills to pay right now…between my sons hospital visit and my specialist appointments and my sons doctor visits.  Sometimes, we just can afford to get sick.  Stupid money, it just grows on trees right?

I am also applying to two new jobs.  Very exciting time for me right now.

    I have every sympathy! I’m asthmatic too and I loathe knitted bags with wooden handles… I’ve yet to be convinced that knitted bags look anything other than a bit Glastonbury!

      And worst of all, my mother said she only wants these handles. I bought a different handle and she said no. Grr

        Oh no. I just refuse to knit bags. And knitted flowers…. My sister has been on at me for about three years to knit (and FELT!!!) a vase full cos she fell in love with a display somewhere. NO chance! Good luck! I made a mistake in a cable on a cowl at Christmas… I didn’t fix it either!

    Nothing is worse than being stuck with a project you hate but not being able to rip it out because you’ve committed to making it for someone else. I feel your pain. Good luck! And God bless online shopping.
