I would like to thank...

I would like to thank Fiber One oat and chocolate chewy granola bars for being delicious. I would also like to send a shout out to the weather for being so fine today.

Michelle came over on saturday, we baked cupcakes and went to El Matador and ate cheesy wonderful nachos, it was pretty much a perfect day. However it was not the most weight watchers friendly day. Sunday I figured the week was pretty much blown anyway so after lunch at Olive Garden with my mom for her birthday I had three cupcakes, a huge salad, and two chili dogs. mmmmm, chili dogs.

The very best part of Sunday was discovering 8 hours of Masterpiece Theatre's Cmplete Jane Austen on my DVR. I pretty much sat on the couch and knitted for 6 hours as Catherine Morland fell in love with Henry Tilney, and then as Anne Elliot regreted her decision not to marry Captain Wentworth. It was enough to give a girl the vapors, heh.

There isn't another episode of Masterpiece til the end of the month and its Emma (not my favorite) so I am somewhat dissapointed, but at least I got alot done on the hat I am knitting. (the book from the library has come in amazingly handy)
I am very frustrated with my sister right now. I really felt like she was making some headway with her situation and then she turned around and threw it all away and ontop of that she is letting her situation beat her up again. What do you do? She's an adult, she pays her bills (and his) and she doesn't want it to change. I take that back, sometimes she does, but those are rare times and it's just more important to her to be with some than to be safe and happy. Its pretty messed up.

OOO OOO I almost forgot! I have decided to learn how to make amigurumi and to that end went to Michael's and got a shit ton of yarn and crochet needles and "I Taught Myself to Crochet" (by the makers of "I Taught Myself to Knit" from which I, ... well, I taught myself to knit actually). I also ordered this book
and preordered this one so be
expecting me to start churning out ninjas, owls and lions any day now.

I kept busy over the weekend and didn't get to talk to Melissa as much as I usually do and when I did get to talk to her I found out that Haydrienne has a stomach bug thats been going on for days. If you are reading this (does anyone read this?) send happy thoughts to miss melissa.

I read.
She feels a bit better today.
Thanks for making me jealous of my lack of El Matador.
And figure out that crochet thing so you can make us those cute gnomes we saw on Etsy.
