Vacation is ended?

Well, both the gurlz are home safe and now it is get back into the proper swing of things before school starts on September 4th. This is Grade 1 and that means Mummy has to be on the ball about things like snacks (2) drinks (2) and a healthy lunch that the picky one will eat. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Let's just say - that if I make it through September, without forgetting or worse sending her with peanut butter or some other forbidden food, I will have accomplished much.
I found a delightful yarn store in Grimsby called Stitch and she carries some beautiful stuff. May have to go back there if the LYS that is closing doesn't have the right sized needles. Never 2nd guess yourself about needles. If you don't think you have them, buy them. I bought yarn and got the coordinating pattern (for free cause of Stitch n Pitch) and came home ready to start on the socks for my Mom. Well I don't have dpns in the right size nor a circ. She even had the shorter ones that I realize I need after just about stabbing myself with the 8 inch ones on my wrist warmers. Have any of you knit with Super Soxx? I have a 3 inch cuff going and have still not hit my second bout of yellow. Very frustrating as this was the main purchasing purpose!!!
I bought lunch at Ikea today and that was it. How you ask ? well there is the money issue - it's all invested in yarn right now (muahahaha) and they just didn't have what I was looking for. And the little gurl screamed everytime I put her in the stroller or shopping cart.
We are having some strong winds here - my work out capris are on the neighbours shed roof - they were the only casualties, but not sure how will get back. It's a job for another day.
I am loving my clothesline - holds 2 loads easily (I'm not one to show my skivvies on the line - they have their own drying rack). But since I usually have 4 loads, I may have to put a second one up - just need more line, a cincher and a tall ladder. no biggee (hahahah)
I should sleep now as I am laughing a little too much for this post.
nighty night!
Oh yes - in the mail today came my post assessment review letter from the income tax department - Other Deductions. I knew they would write, they are so reliable. Now I have to compose a letter, find the reference I used for the claim and photocopy all the pertinent documents. In my spare time of course. Have to love the tax department!

Good luck with the lunches. It's hard at first, but then you'll find something that works. I went through periods of eating the same type of sandwich every day for months and I loved it.
