10:00pm - setup up family room as bunkhouse
1:30 AM!!!!! - turn off TV, and tell the girls no more SCREAMING, RUNNING, and HIDE/SEEK.

6:30 - (they're all still sleeping)
7:00 - put out everything for b-fast and clean up some paper plates/cups from them eating AGAIN after 1:30AM!... you find wet socks in the downstairs bathroom and the backdoor UNLOCKED! where I, myself locked every door in this house early evening.. and double checked at 1:30AM!
and what do I find when I open the garbage can? WHAT DO I SEE?
OMG!!OMG!!!!!!??? They threw out one of my skeins of yarn!!!! IT was a tangled MESS! but.. COME ON!. The one of two that I JUST bought this past week to knit up some fingerless mitts for my nephew that HE requested...
OK.. - and first off...WHO UNLOCKED THE BACKDOOR? AFTER 1:30 AM???? and they were sneaky b/c I never really slept last night and didn't hear anything.. and believe you me! I was listening w/my eyes!... TOO many 'what-if's' to contemplate.
so now - ALL the other what-if's - what if I never opened the trash bin and never saw it lying in a heap. THANK GOD, there was no melted cake or anything nasty near it!... what if I never found it and was about to start the project, and where the heck is the second skein? it was right here in my knitting basket!... and WHY were y'all even NEAR my knitting basket.. do I need to make a sign? "STEP AWAY from the BASKET"

I'm so upset..I just want them to stay sleeping til 10am, and here take your breakfast to go...for the ride home... C and I will be having a long talk today... a REALLY long one...

8:05 - (they're all still sleeping) - i need another cup of coffee..

May your weekend be filled w/obedient children who don't toss part of your stash!

PS. I've gotten about 7" of the lower bodice done on the F&F cardi... :).. I ran out of yarn! but Kimmy is a gem, and picked some up for me!.

The best thing about sleepover parties is when they are over. I can't wait to see your Feather and Fan cardigan. I've been wanting to make one too!

I am gasping! GASPING! Go poke them all awake with knitting needles. Metal ones.

What.The.Fk?! I mean, what could they possibly have been doing with it?! Don't they know? Don't they even know that that's grounds for justifiable homicide? OMG. Just let that happen in my house. There will be two twin beds out on the front lawn! But, hey, on a happy note, 7"! That's awesome.
