The end is in sight

What a crazy, busy, exciting week! I won a lifetime pass to the Missouri Theatre! They have a symphony, put on other concerts, work with a local indie theatre to show some movies and provide theatre space for the True/False Film Festival that is held here every year, and host many other events. It was built in the 20's and is a beautiful old theatre. It's now closed for the next 10 months while they restore and renovate it to its previous glory! Since I'm from here and we have no plans to move, they're going to be stuck with me! We'll still have to buy a ticket for Doug or the kids, but I hope Doug can watch the kids sometimes while I go alone.

I've also watched my cousin's 7 month old son this week while his daycare was closed. Busy, but fun week with him. He's just starting to military crawl and he was all over the place!

I'm in the straightaway on the socks... So far I've enjoyed the Magic Loop.I have a bit of a ladder on the sole, but am hoping it will even out when they get a bath in a night or two. This is the last time I'll be modelling... My SPs feet are smaller than mine! (Fairly easy to do since I wear a women's size 11!) I've made some stitchmarkers to send with the socks and have a couple of other little things to go as well. We need to run out to a local honey producer and pick up some honey candies to send along. I'm going to start a Weasley sweater for Lainey (christmas present) and a Reid for our goddaughters birthday. We also have some friends that are due any minute. Once we find out what they have I'll be making a Pea Pod baby set for this fall.

Last night I watched HP and the Goblet of Fire again in preparation to see the Order of the Phoenix sometime soon. We're hoping we can get away later in the week for an afternoon matinee and dinner at our favorite Thai restaurant. We'll see if it happens! Doug finished book 7 and I'm hoping to start it soon as well.

I've also continued putting in too much time on Ravelry. I have most of my stash photographed and entered. I've got a huge queue of patterns I'd like to (eventually) knit. I hope it's open to the public soon. There are still things to fix and add, but it's going to be/is a great site!

A 10 year old is no problem. It's the 10 and 13 year old that are the problem. One says it's white the other says it's black! Oy.

thanks fr the birthday wishes!
