Otherwise known as procrastination...
There aren't enough words in the world to express how thankful I am that this weekend is FINALLY here. My plane leaves tomorrow at a very civilized 10 AM. My husband is driving us to the airport so we don't have to contend with parking and then schlepping our bags through the lots, on and off transport vans, etc.
To update you on the laundry situation (as if you cared), I now have clean panties and hand knit socks. The jeans are in the washer and on my next trip downstairs, I plan on taking the Dyson to deal with the spider webs I found down there. The main idea is to vacuum the murder weapon before I bring it up and put clean undies inside. In my heart of hearts, I'm hoping that spider infanticide was complete when I butchered the mother and that without her, the wee ones that got away did not survive. Call me heartless, but I got a clear picture of what they planned on being when they reached adulthood, and really, I should be a decorated hero. If you call me out on this, I will post a picture of mom on my blog. Fair warning.
I called the Charlottesville yarn shop to find out what I should bring. Directions stated US size six needles to make a sock or a pouch, but they didn't indicate straights, circs or dpns. I can bring whatever I'd like, and of course, if I forget something, they'd be happy to sell me what I need. They're so excited that at least 2 of us are traveling by plane to come to their big event. I didn't have the heart to tell them the big event was an afterthought when we realized that hey, we're going to be there this weekend, and look what's going on at the yarn store! Sweet! I won't burst their bubble.
Obviously, I've procrastinated enough and have to tackle those spider webs. In fact, I saw the one on top of the hot water heater is bigger today than it was yesterday. Does my arachnophobia really shine, or what?
I won't be posting this weekend because I've no laptop. Sniff. Maybe that's not such a bad thing for a complete getaway. See you all Tuesday or Wednesday.
