Vicki has finished and it is goregous!  Kim is going to begin her seaming!  Wow, two finished in one week…I am jealous.  While I am tinking back my increase error, I am letting my screwy cable–near the bottom–stew until my mother returns from Florida.

In the meantime, I may start on a sleeve if I can find another US 7 addi.  This stash organization is making it difficult to find things.  Like many other bloggers are doing, I think I may categorize my stash and even post an album.  Perhaps it will keep me honest.  Do I really need 19 pairs of socks worth of sock yarn?

Thanks all for the kitty well wishes.  He and Owen were so cute this morning demanding breakfast.  Scooby was louder and more annoying and thus ate first.  He’s got me already!  One problem–for the squeamish–avert your eyes from the following text–he hasn’t had a BM yet.  Am I supposed to worry about these things?  I actually called the shelter and they said if he doesn’t have one in the next 24 hours to bring him to the clinic.  Unfortunately the hours are from 2-9pm and Kevin is going out of town.  I am NOT bringing all three kids.  Kevin will bring him on Thursday if he still hasn’t done the dirty deed.

Cameron, Gracie and I went to Boomers this morning before Parent Training with Owen and Cameron’s peer modeling.  I wish I had brought my camera.  Between Gracie on the rock wall and the two of them on Dance Dance Revolution…I had some great blog fodder.  Parent Training was fun.  Gracie worked with Owen and I.  When asked, "What do you like to play with?" Owen is supposed to say "trains".  It is what he has been taught.  Today he said, "Gracie".  So cute.  Cam did peer modeling with one of Owen’s former classmates.  Owen’s old teacher came charging into my training and demanded to speak with me regarding Cameron.  She proceeded to tell me that Cameron was teaching her student, a kindergartener with autism, how to armpit fart.  I asked what the prompt level was and we both cracked up.  No doubt his mom will be thrilled.  What the heck?  It is an age appropriate behavior. 

And from Vicki:

1.  How much space is left on your TiVo or Comcast box?

About 40%.  We love this thing.  It’s kind of expensive though.

2.  Have you ever bought a DVD of a TV series and, if so, which one?

        Kevin has Band of Brothers and I bought him Father Ted but it is in PAL format, from when we lived in the UK and can’t be played on our VCR.

3.  What was the last TV show you watched before reading this message?


4.  List five TV shows you won’t miss…

      I am not a big TV fan.  I do like to watch Lost.  24 is pretty good.  Desperate Housewives is okay.  Buffy reruns while waiting for Owen’s bus is always nice.

5.  Name three people — pass the stick.

I think I will pass this on to Kim/Curlie Girl ’cause she didn’t do the last one I sent her way.  Load the guilt on.  And Donna ’cause I passed the music one to her too and she didn’t do it.  And last to the other Donna, ’cause she passed the music one to me. 

And I saw this at Margene’s:

    I only have 4 socks worth of stashed yarn, so there is an obvious outlet for you if you need to deplete sock inventory. Guess what, the sock yarn I picked out while at Granny’s is very similar to two balls I already had in stash, by another manufacturere. I guess I really like those colors, huh?

    As the mother of two boys, I would have to say that armpit farts, loud belches, etc, are key components of normal juvenile male behavior.

  2. Alright, you got me! LOL! And yes, I do think you need 19 pairs of sock yarn. There’s no shame in that, my dear!

    Geesh, I found out I have 16 pairs’ worth of sock yarn and I don’t even knit socks!!! It’s outrageous, it is!

    About the kitty BM issues….Cats are kinda like humans, when they encounter stress, or traveling, or new environments, they tend not to …poo for a while. That’s ok, they can go awhile w/o the pooing. My only concern would be if his is pooing elsewhere, like a basement corner or something. Not to freak you out about it though…if he’s using his litter box to pee, they he would most likely use it for the poo too. Glad to hear that he and Owen are buddies! I’ve read studies that animals (especially cats) help to emotionally open up autistic kids. It’ll be interesting to see what happens.

    When I first got Zoe, she didn’t poop for over a day after I brought her home — a lot of cats get a case of the nerves and won’t poop until they feel settled. It had me a little freaked too, and would periodically remind her where the litter box was for when she was ready, so just be patient, LOL!

    I can think of enough sock yarn in my stash for 20 pairs, and that’s only off the top of my head. Oh, I just though of 4 more. Anyway, you have nothing to worry about. Even though you don’t have 38 feet, a good stash of sock yarn is always important. 🙂
