On to tomorrow

I’ve been trying all day to think of how to post about today while still following Thumper’s Admonition.

Hmm.  I will say that having raised four teenagers (who are all perfectly lovely adults now), I know that the angrier a person gets over something that is unreasonable, the more you know they know they’re in the wrong.

Stanford blew it.  Today I finally got through to someone with authority in accounting who was as appalled as I was–and gave us her name!  Who acknowledged that yes, I had paid my bill in full and right away, sorry for issuing a duplicate billing instead of the requested receipt, it’s all fixed now.

If ever there was a day I needed a knitting pattern that required a lot of attention to help me take a deep breath, well, I’m glad I had Monterey to work on afterwards. I got to where I’d been going to stop, decided it was still too short, and just kept on knitting.

Richard came home from work and made me laugh. I so much needed that.

I have just one more row calling me (unless I go on again…) and then the castoff.   Hopefully tomorrow I’ll show off the finished shawl.

I like to knead bread when I’m in that kind of mood. Punch. Punch. And the dough can take it!

Wouldn’t Mr. Rogers’ show have been different if he had taught knitting for anger management, instead of punching a pillow? Giggle!

I can’t believe how fast you knit! There must be smoke coming off your needles!

Well, I’m glad that’s settled, but what a shame it took MONTHS to get that way. Glad you did have just the right knitting project to help you focus.

glad to hear you finally got someone with a brain to listen to you!!

while I was in CA I bought some wonderful silk yarn to knit a lace scarf with (picture posted here: http://esmerldas.blogspot.com/2009/07/something-else-to-share.html )

I’m looking forward to working on it while I’m recovering

thanks for the ongoing inspiration

Oh, it is ever so gratifying when you find someone who not will listen, but do something about it.

To make you laugh, I hope:


This story took place when there used to be scales on the street that, when you stepped up and dropped in your coin, would print out your weight and fortune.

A couple was walking down the street when the man spotted just such a scale. He stepped up on it, dropped in his coin, and when the printout came out, read what it said: YOU ARE WISE, HANDSOME, SUAVE,AND DEBONAIR. His wife, reading this over his shoulder, said, “They got your weight wrong, too!”

Knitting, a cuppa and a good audiobook – bliss!

Glad it all worked out!

Bless their hearts. (good grief)

In the South there are two instances where that phrase is appropriate:
1. When someone brings joy to others.
2. When someone (or some entity) is functioning, yet, a brick shy of a full load.

Yay that it’s all cleared up, and Yay for someone taking some level of personal responsibility. It makes SUCH a difference to the way I feel when dealing with this kind of thing.

Knitting is the ultimate de-stresser in my book:)
