Well, it's about time I get off my duff and do a little bloggin'. It's been a very busy week. Last weekend Dan and I went to Stitches East in Atlantic City. It wasn't the best of roadtrips or stash acquisitions as we were worried about Kristen (DD), who lives and attends college in Missouri. The engine blew in her Eclipse on Friday, and it was really stressful knowing that she was without wheels. She was pretty upset, which in turn upset us.
Then on the way to Stitches, I hit a deer, which greatly upset me and left me feeling traumatized. Although there was no damage to the car, Mr. Buck didn't get up after the assault on my Prius. It looked as if he did a back flip and his head and body flew in two different directions.
However, in the afternoon, we started coming around. We were our usual selves, acting goofy.
The weather was beautiful but windy. I just love the ocean; I feel crazy around crashing waves. I could have played in the water all day. And of course, I had to pick up seashells along the way. We walked the boardwalk and frequented a casino or two. We had a fun and romantic time, minus the phone calls from Kristen about her car. But of course, as parents, you always want to hear from the kids. Did I just say that?
And on a sad note, I did not buy any yarn; I was just too stressed out. In hind site, we should have gone to the beach first as that is always uplifting and then went to Stitches.
The ride home was fun too. We stopped at the Pez Museum and the Crayola factory in Easton, PA. I love crayons and coloring books. I think coloring is a good stress reliever. If you're really pissed off, it feels good to color outside of the lines. And as one calms down, you begin to feel the need to color inside the lines. But enough about my mental moments! And we saw the world's largest crayon - Big Blue!
Well,enough about the trip! I'm still working on a baby blanket, which I believe I'll be finishing this week or next.
