The countdown has started till the Dinner Dance. Tonight is our last meeting. And the dance is 4 sleeps away. I am very excited for this to be over. While I am hopeful that we raise a lot of money, I am ready for my life to be my own again. We plan to add significantly to the fundraising that night. Up for silent auction is a pug. I got outbid last year but I am bringing more money this year and I am getting a dog. Yippee! I told the kids when everyone was pottytrained we would get a dog. Now we are all trying to decide upon a name–except Kevin. He is being a stinker saying he doesn’t want one. But majority rules!
Here is the knitting basket I made for the dinner dance. They are meant to be valued around $100. There is over $40 in yarn, a $25 GC to Granny’s Yarn Shoppe, needles, a how to book, the two novelty scarves and the bag itself. Oh yea! And a one hour knitting lesson at my house with me and my mom. One knit blogger sent me yarn to knit up a felted bag for Owen’s school. I plan to do that and raffle it off among the teachers–donating the money back to the school. Look what else she sent me. Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
Owen has been waking up kind of early. Yesterday it was 5am. Today it was 4am. We are looking forward to “springing ahead.” I hope he gets back to normal after our guests leave. I think the change is throwing off his routine. At least, I hope that’s it.
