Sky Scarf

I was randomly screwing around on ravelry.com one night. You know ravelry.com, right? It's a place to find all kinds of knitting and crocheting projects. I don't usually use it because I tend to think of myself as too much of a novice to mess with the projects on there, but I ran across this project the sky scarf. It's a conceptual knitting project where you observe the sky every day for 365 days knitting only ONE row a day with colors that correspond to the daytime sky (I look out and note the sky at 2p every day). It's the first time that I've knit with multiple colors trading in and out using two strands. It's really confusing, and cleaning it up at the end is going to be a pain in the ass, but whatever. I'm really liking the way it's turning out so far. And to think, I'm only 7 days into a project!

The resurrection

Although it has been a very long time since I've posted (mostly because Dennis mentioned in one of his classes that I had a blog. I didn't feel comfortable blogging anymore once his students found it and subsequently told him about reading it), I'm going to try again. Hopefully, those students are gone from his classes, and don't remember or (ha!) began following it. I have 9 public followers, so I'm pretty sure none of them are following me.

Anyway, the point of this blog was to post progress on my sky scarf, keep myself accountable for my training for the mini marathon in May, and maybe update it with a bit of my life. I'd like to get back to the Say What Wednesdays again too.

So, anyway, I'm back!

Say What Wednesday

Lex (looking out the window): Hey, there's Megan and her doggie. Wait, no. That's the boy Megan. (talking about our neighbor Megan and her husband).

Me to Lex: What was your favorite part of today? (we'd spent the entire day in Magic Kingdom)
Lex: The Yo-Yos (gigantic yo-yos at our hotel).

Lex: Daddy, Mommy is going to beat you up because she's strong.

Say What Wednesday (and HACKED!!)

So, apparently, my account was hacked this morning. Awesome.

And today, I had to take Lex to the doctor this morning because he was running a low grade fever, vomiting, and generally feeling like crap. He was so amazing at the doctor. He was swabbed for strep, gagged, and then went back to playing Angry Birds. Awesome again! Anyway, I stayed home with him all day, and when he finally went down for his nap he slept for FIVE FREAKING HOURS. It was like having a free day at home by myself all day. Score. He's still awake right now, so we'll see if he falls asleep anytime tonight.

Onto Say What Wednesday:

Lex: I have cherry lips, mommy

Lex: Mommy, STOP!!! You're messing up my hair cut!
Me: Who are you trying to impress?
Lex: You.
Me: Oh, well, then I'll stop.

Lex, after putting his leg in the same pants hole 3 times in a row: Aw, DAMN IT! I did it again!!

Lex (after I wiped his mouth after he vomited in a weak voice): Thank you, Mommy. I love you.

Say What Wednesday

After the morning I had with the Tyrant, I'm going to need to remind myself of times when he's not kicking, punching, or just being a general early morning douchebag. Thus, I bring you, a lot of funny from the last week.

Lex: Daddy hit me like the pizza man! (we have no idea what he's talking about...)

Lex to me: You want to eat my little sausage? (he's holding up a tiny little sausage...get your minds out of the gutter!)

Lex: I keep knocking over these monster trucks and keep having to pick them up. And I'm. So. Sick. Of. It.

Lex: Holy Jesus, Mommy! You got in front of my bus and almost got runned over.

Lex (after I turn on the fan in the bathroom while he's making a major transaction): Don't turn the fan on, Mommy. It's loud and it makes me nervous.

Lex (after spending a seemingly long time trying to cram a matchbox car into a matchbox car case): What the hell?!
Me: What did you say?
Lex: Nothing...

Say What Wednesday

I'm going to the bathroom with the door mostly closed. Lex pushes the door all the way open.

Lex: What are you doing, Mommy?
Me: Peeing. What are you doing?
Lex: Nothing. *pauses* Do you pee out of your butt?
Me: Nooooo....
Lex: Why do you sit to pee?
Me: We've been over this...I don't have a penis.
Lex: Did you throw it the trash?
Me: not that I'm aware of...

Lex to Dennis: You want a piece of me?

'Say What' Wednesday

Look a SWW ON Wednesday!

Lex: Daddy, what's wrong?
Dennis: I'm perturbed.
Lex: Why are you a turd, Daddy?

Lex: I think a big giant turtle is going to smash my house. I'll have to build a castle house.

Lex: I want a cookie.
Me: You can have half of a cookie.
Lex: I want two halves of a cookie.
Me: Your math is excellent...you're still getting half of a cookie.
Lex: But that half of the cookie is yucky; I want both halves.
Me: If one half of the cookie is yucky, why wouldn't the other half be yucky?
Lex: Because this other half makes that half yummy.

I'm wondering if I have a future hostage negotiator or lawyer in my house...
