Starting to feel a bit better

Its been a rough couple of weeks! I will get into that more tomorrow. Yess, I'm gonna try writing tomorrow too.

Tomorrow I get to to trick or treating with my seestor's boys for the first time! Yay!! *claps!*

Emrick is going as Boba Fett, and PJ is going as . . . . wait, get this: Yoda! He's SOOO cute as yoda too! The Yoda costume comes with a little soft had with Yoda ears and a wrinkly forehead. I do have a scary picture of me wearing said hat. . . . But it is disturbing:

I'm done and I won!!

Very very good day yesterday and today!
*does obnoxious happy dance!*

Ok ok! I found the pattern here for a Pinecone shawl And I used less than 1000 yards of silk lace weight from Claudia's handpaints on a size 3 needles. . . and I almost went CRAZY. (I'm knitting the shawl in my profile picture)

I'm going to try and get pictures tonight, that's when I'm blocking it. It's going to be all ready to go for Saturday's wedding! Only thing is that I wish I would have made it slightly larger. The bride is very tall and willowly and I would have liked a deeper point. (longer point?) But my mental health wasn't worth it. And I don't think I would have gotten it done in time.

And I'm also getting sock yarn from Jaci!! Check out her blog at Confessions of a Knitting Diva (not like your going to get a ton of hits from my site, Jaci. :-D ) So now I can go back to working on everything else people want me to make for them. . . Keep wishing guys! Who knows when I will finish something else. Oh, wait. . . I also finished a hat for my nephew Wyatt from Shelly's quilt stich pattern hat. I will try and get a picture of that too. . . with him wearing it! He's so cute! So I guess I can't say that I don't finish anything. . . I just don't finish much!
Like that Print-O-the waves stole I put on hold to finish this shawl, I think that's next on the finishing list.

Another car accident

This time I'm the one who hit someone. Darn it!!! I rear-ended a 2007 Infinity with my good 'ol Buick yesterday at about 6:30am when I was trying to get from 94 east bound to 494 south bound in Woodbury, MN. They stopped really fast. I couldn't. My car stalled as soon as I hit them and I had to push my car witht the help of the other driver to the sholder past the bridge we were under. My airbag didn't go off, so I must not have been going that fast. I smashed their back bumper all up, and I do feel really bad because the guy I hit had two other car-poolers with him and we had to wait for an hour for the state patrol to get to us. . . . even though the nearest weight station is less than 7 miles away and we were causing a traffic jam on one of the busiest intersections in the cities. . . .

After the trooper arrived and left, I got to wait for the tow truck. That was another 40 minutes. Then the tow truck had to pick up another van and drop it off before he could tow me alllll the way back to New Richmond. I got home at 11 am.

Funny thing is. . . my car is running just fine. (knock on lots and lots-o-wood) I only have a bend license plate in the front of my car. I waited to start it at home just in case the engine stalled again. I am sooooooo lucky. Now I just have to wait and see how much my insurance goes up. This is only my second accident that I have caused. (I backed into someone 10 years ago. . . )

Now I get to see if I can learn from my mistakes and quit driving like an idiot!
