Congratulations to Tam

Congratulations to Tam for winning the movie line contest from Rat Race. Yummy chocolate is your prize. By the way, I lost my email files and your mailing address in the process. Would you please email that to me again at kkmj at comcast dot net?

Tim, I'll have to do some research on the Mixed Nuts movie. If that line is also said there, then by all means you should get a prize too.

The next line up for consideration is:

"Remember, we're proud, happy, and thrilled."

Good luck to all.

By the way, there are so many good movies out there that I may just use lines from movies that have already been in the contest to mix things up. And that's all I'm going to say about that.

As I'm writing this, the background music to ZimDee's computer game is playing. It's a Peanuts game (you know, Charlie Brown and the gang), but what is hilarious is that he always chooses German for the language and he plays it very well. No, he doesn't know German, and as far as I know he hasn't heard the language being spoken. I think he just likes the sound of it and guesses very well. I did take three years of German in high school, but haven't kept up on it so I'm very rusty. I know just enough to figure out what's going on. The funny thing is, I asked him a question the other day and he shook his head no and said "nein", which is of course the German word for "no". It cracked me up. Their little minds really do pick up on new things so easily.

The kids have the rest of the week off from school for conferences. Yay! That means we don't have to be anywhere at any certain time. I already told you how much I love those days. Except tomorrow we're going to take a short trip to the yarn store. It shouldn't be too tortuous for them, because I'm going to be buying some yarn to make stuffed animals for each of them from patterns from a book. Girlie has chosen a turtle, and ZimDee wants a clownfish, of course. Those will be perfect little mindless projects for me to work on when I need a break from the sweaters. I actually was looking for a mindless portable project to take with me today when I was walking out the door, and to my dismay, didn't have any. So we will remedy that for sure tomorrow.

Girlie starts soccer practice on Monday, so that will be occupying our time until school gets out. But don't you worry--the practices and games are the perfect places for me to knit.

Little Sproutie's schedule has been all thrown off since being sick last weekend, and he's been getting up at the crack of dawn this week. I'm talking 5am. Those of you that know me well are shaking your heads and laughing right now, because you know how much of a night owl I am. I'm never awake to see 5am unless I've stayed up until then and haven't gone to bed yet. There's just too much knitting to do! But I've always been like this, ever since I was a little kid. I guess everyone's internal clock is different. I'll just have to train that baby boy to wait until at least 7am to get up if he wants his mom to be anywhere near coherent.

I hope everyone is having a great day. *love to all*

Welcome to the knitting vacation swap! I've sent you an invite to join the Yahoo group.

What a cute idea for a running blog contest

FIVE A.M.? I'm like you. I only see that when I stay up UNTIL then. You are going to have to reprogram that boy's internal clock. That schedule with NOT DO. :-P

Spiderman and I are sick right now so it's pretty miserable. He doesn't get up at 5, he gets up at about 2 a.m. and comes in bed with me. Then he just keeps us both awake for the rest of the night tossing and turning and coughing. So not only am I sick, not only do I have a sick kid but I have no sleep. At least I know I have a fellow sleep-deprived zombie suffering along with me. (you)

I'm thinking this new movie line is from a movie I haven't seen. No bells are ringing.

I love that Girlie is playing soccer! I had some of the funnest times when I joined an Indoor Soccer team. Plus, she's a competetive little thing, so I bet she's having a blast too. :-)

I love hearing about ZimDee and all the crazy cute things he's picking up! Is he still expressing himself artistically? He should keep that up! He'll have all these girls falling for him in the future for sure. <3
