Oh, How the Day Got Better!

After my whining yesterday, my day improved quite a bit!

I had to meet a client in the afternoon, and the meeting went smoothly. I also VERY MUCH enjoyed the quiet 30 minute car ride there and back. (Can I tell you what it's like to listen to the radio without hearing, "No Mommy, my song! The Sunshine Song!" I like the Sunshine song, but there's only so many times I can listen to it!)

I came home from work, had dinner, and then left again to meet up with my friend Kim. Our city was having it's annual "Jingle Bell Festival" - a nice excuse to block off the streets, have the shops open late, and eat free cookies and ice cream. And get this - I won a raffle! I bought a ticket to support our local family network and won a basket. I don't know what's in it because I never looked, but I'm excited just the same. I should be getting it sometime this weekend. I do feel a little badly that the whole family didn't get to go. But with DH sick and little girl looking rather peaked, it just seemed better to leave them at home. Maybe next year...

Can I tell you how nice it was to have some adult conversation without kids interrupting? SO NICE!

Today, the little ones seem in good spirits. Hopefully, it will last. We're taking my MIL to do some Christmas shopping.

Oh yeah, and the knitting. Here's a picture of the small child hat I'm working on. I'd like to have it done by Monday, but I don't think it's going to happen.

After this, I have a spa set to do, and then hopefully a shawl. But, Christmas decorating and baking also have to get done!

Happy Knitting Everyone!

Wow! Now i don't have any little children anymore, but it would be fun to get out with a friend and go to a JIngle Bell Fest.

Can't wait to hear what you won!

Tell us more about the spa set you are making!
