Even when it was just the first-born and I (well, and the hubby of course), the mail was always the excitement of the day for us. Sad, I know. But when you’re a SAHM, you have to take it where you can get it. And still, even with all four of the boys and I (and still the hubby of course), the mail still seems to bring a certain amount of excitement to us. Still sad, yes, I know. I especially love it when packages show up. Today I got two – BONUS! I know, it just keeps getting even more sad.
This morning, when we returned from the Farmers market, the wire for the necklaces had shown up. 5 feet of silver wire, for some reason I was expecting a lot more wire to that 5 feet than there really is; especially at the price I had to buy it for.
I’ve started one of the scarves, well, I’ve almost finished one of the scarves. I paid money for a pattern that says cast on 60 st, knit 240 rows of St st. I paid money for that?? Oh well, it wasn’t expensive. Just made me laugh.
I also finally picked out the lining for my suit, haven’t picked out the pattern yet, but the lining I have. I also wanted to get my money’s worth for the shipping, so I ordered some extra fabric for a shirt too. That I’ve picked out a pattern for.
I dug out the boys’ parachute. It kept them busy for hours playing all sorts of various games, and I let them keep it up, so it should keep them busy for many more hours tomorrow. While digging I found more of the hubby’s clothes, and he makes fun of me! So, more trips to Goodwill it sounds like.
