So here I am on day 3 of my Weight Watchers adventure (I did pretty well on the first two days, not perfectly, but much better than I had been doing pre-WW), and I was already trying to find a way to fit in going to Fuddrucker’s for dinner! The kids had a half day so we went to the Oakland Zoo, and I figured since I had already gone over the bridge, what was stopping in Emeryville for dinner? Unfortunately for my plan first the kids wanted to eat at the Zoo (and I skipped it), then I got going directly home without even a sign for Emeryville or S.F. I don’t go to the East Bay that much since the Job from Hell ™ so I’m not all that good at finding my way around if it’s not obvious. So oh darn, I had to eat within my Points today as well! I can’t wait until Wednesday when I can weigh in again, and the work I’ve done so far shows up, I really hope.
I got some knitting done today, which surprised me, since keeping track of three kids on your own at a packed zoo (I had forgotten it was the public schools’ spring break now so everyone was there) is pretty hard, but I got some work done on my Mountain Colors socks.
My next project will be a scarf (I think) for IM’s teacher. She moved from Japan to work at our school when DL started there 5 years ago, and has taught all three of my kids. She is really sweet, even offering to be my Japanese tutor and not charge me (DL offered but I’d have to pay him! Probably in Legos!). So since IM will be moving on next year I want to do something special for her.
Speaking of which, I can’t believe I didn’t show you the other present my parents gave me for my birthday!
Handmade for me sock blockers! I was trying to hint to my dad that he should make me some, since he made DL a great Harry Potter wand last year, but he did buy me a nice set on Ebay. They’re currently sporting my Tiny Dancer sock that is supposed to be in the Stitch N Bitch 2008 Calendar, but I need to get more to really block on them! And on that note, more socks:
2 skeins of Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn. Stash accounted for: 157 skeins. Sock pairs to be made: 27.
