March 1st - onward to new challenges

Happy 1st of March to all!
We are rolling along through the birthday week.... Friday was oldest nephew Justin (1st grandchild on both sides for the oldest child on both sides - pretty cool) He is 10. wow.
Megan's dad turned 36 - I think anyways, we haven't heard otherwise, but his message box was full on his cell, so talking to him was impossible. Oh and Mary from work - a fellow knitter who doesn't do ravelry - but I'm working on it....
Today I know is someone's birthday and that is awesome for you!!! We celebrated with my family for Justin, Barb and Jacob.
Monday - the 2nd, is Megan's Don - he will be 51 and he is like an uncle to her. We have to remember to call - from the girls. (his wife Diane is Norah's Diane - seriously My Diane, and for Megan, My Don.
Tuesday is my sister-in-law Barb's birthday - she will be 33. I'm not sure if she's looking forward to the end of Maternity leave after March break.
Wednesday is Melinda's birthday - she will be 30 something. I think 32, but sometimes friends mess these things up. I know she is younger than me.
Then we skip the 5, 6, and 7 - again if it is your birthday HURRAY!!!
Sunday - the 8th is my nephew Jacob's 5th birthday. As his house has one working toilet and sink at this time and a kitchen in boxes with no floor - I know what he wants for his birthday. They came to my parents today to bathe and shower...

In knitting news, my rainbow socks are finished and now belong to my mother. Le sigh. And the lovely socks I knit her for her birthday 1.5 years ago are now felted slipper socks for Megan. Le sigh. My sweater is almost completely skirted - one lace wedge and one garter repeat and then onto the bodice. I have found the yarn for my O W L S sweater, but was not permitted to buy it for two reasons - no pattern with me to check the gauge and, well no money either... However, I see a trip to Mary Maxim in the next month - my income tax refund reward. (as the rest goes to new vacuum - deal of the week 50% off still in box but.... and bills and new glasses for me) Funny that - my sunglasses dropped from my head to the driveway today and broke in two. Megan guesses I can buy a new pair - so sweet that child.
I have 3 or 4 pairs of fingerless mitts on the commissioning - childhood friends and awesome coworker, and a pair of socks - good friend of mom. They will be the portable knitting and the sweater continue to be the evening knitting.

The Beeping you ask - the tenant's cell phone. ARRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHH must suck it up as need her money to pay bills....and for home to live in.

Have a great month!!!
