It's Been A While (no pics)

I haven't blogged in a while because I'm a bit down.

LYS (local yarn shop) that I was really digging is now dissolved. Urgh. We were hoping to move our Sunday knitting marathons over there, but that's not going to happen now, so we still have to look for a new location.

Best friend, Renee', whose daughter Sophia is beloved by my daughter, is moving to Dallas at the end of the week. I'm taking the kids over to say goodbye this evening and am quite torn up about it.

I don't know how to write about being upset, really, so that's why this sounds so stilted.

Oh, yeah. And there's also the fact that my daughter has woken up (for the day) at 3am the last 2 mornings. Apparently, she inherited her mother's insomnia.

ETA: Good-bye went much better than I thought. Sophia, Skull-crusher (my mom gave Toddler-boy that nickname), and Pooka (can't really call her Toddlerette anymore) had a wonderful play-date this evening and Renee' and I gorged ourselves on Chinese take-out. No better cure for the blues than spicy, greasy food -- that and theatre candy (don't tell DH about the Junior Caramels in my knitting bag). I'm still feeling down, but I think I'll be ok now. ;)

I love, really, really love the kimono jacket that you and Ms. Mary wore your fingers to the bone creating. It is just amazing. I still can't believe that it is mine - all mine. NO you cannot have it back. I miss you already and I am still in Austin. I can't wait for you and the munchkins to head towards your mom's so you can stop by and see me and Sophia. Love you always, me
