Thank you February 23, 2004

Thank you all for your reassurance regarding the novelty yarns. I appreciate your support and kind words. I know they are just scarves but I want to do the best I can for Owens school. Mind you, I offered to knit a throw—like a Colinette Ab Fab one—no one supported the idea. Just as well, they are expensive and boring. I knit baby cardigans and hats for other autism organizations—the Colinette Spoiled Rotten cardi and a cardi and hat from Berroco Plush but they weren’t very well appreciated. Those scarves…people seem to love them. So, thanks again.

In other news, we had one dead mouse. It was horrible. It has been very difficult to get the vision of that poor little mousie out of my head. I bought no-kill traps and we haven’t trapped another one. Does that mean there was just one? Or does that mean that the no-kill traps don’t work? I guess we will have to experiment. I dreamt we caught one in the no-kill trap, brought it to the park and let it go by the beach. When I bought the second traps at True Value, the salesperson told me another woman dropped her live mouse off at the beach and it followed her back to her car—in the parking lot. Me, I am thinking it is a mother mouse whose babies are back at the house. I have to stop thinking about mice.

I have been avoiding Na Craga as well as the missing Dale sweater. I guess I will hunt through my stash closet today to find the Dale. I can at least get through the mindless part at the bottom. Luckily, I have a little less than a month to get through those novelty scarves. And I have been working on charity hats here and there. Speaking of charity, I want to knit some squares for the Afghanalong for Afghans hosted by Mason-Dixon Knitting.

Well, more Dance work awaits me. Thank you all, again, for your kind comments. There are few things in my life that are more important than doing whatever I can to give Owen the best possible outcome. It sounds so foreboding and depressing. But his well-being, success and progress affect our whole entire family. I desperately want Owen to be one of those 48% that are indistinguishable from their peers. There is just so much inside of him—and I want it all to come out. Oh my gosh, one o’clock! When did that happen??

    If love and commitment have anything to do with his outcome, then rest assured he will be in that 48%! Your love for your family is obvious- and that is a beautiful thing.

    What a great mother you are! I agree with Annie, that Owen will no doubt thrive because of his wonderful family. Good for you.

    About the mouse…EEEEEKKKKK!!! I have the biggest fear of mice. Once (while dh was gone of course) I had a mouse. I stayed with my sister for a few days, **covered** the house with various types of traps, and stayed as far away as possible. Actually I even stayed in a motel for a few days. He was caught by a glue/sticky trap. In his attempt to free himself, he was literally half off, but with his skin still stuck to the trap. I got a neighbor to remove him. It was just awful.

    How strange about your mouse dream – I had a dream last night that there was a little grey mouse in my house and my husband killed it. It was pretty horrible – and I’ve never had a mouse dream before.

    Good luck with your scarves. I’m thinking of making one of those abfab throws for my mom for Christmas. Do you think they’d be boring for a fledgeling knitter too? The yarn is just so pretty!
