I suspect that about 90 percent of you are blissfully unaware that the Daytona 500 is approaching. Did you know it is next weekend? Did you know that events start NOW to build up for this?
Not a big fiber event, let me tell you. Although Bon Jovi is playing, and I’m sure you spinners out there could do some creative things with all that hair.
So why do I know about the Daytona 500’s approach? Because I live in Daytona and it is complicating my life.
I am signed up to help do the Valentine’s Day party at preschool. I am in charge of the goodie-bags. Try not to be jealous, I can't help the fabulous life I lead.
So today I grab the girls and we all head up to International Speedway (home of the racetrack) to go the craft store and the book store.
What should have been a two hour excursion took almost four. I had hoped to get a lot of knittin’ on the Anouk time this afternoon. Instead I am frantically putting up goodie-bags and trying to make dinner.
It is so tiring taking small children out in public. They are pretty well behaved, but with all the traffic they were pretty wiggly by the time we got to the bookstore. So I’m sure there were a few folks trying to find the number for social services as I fussed at them in the bathroom stall. I’m sorry if people think I’m too strict, but two year old should not scream while jumping off the benches in the magazine section while pretending to be super-grover. It is rude.
So, not much progress today, nothing worth taking a picture of. Maybe tomorrow.
