No Title Today

I don't have enough oomph in me to even think of a title...and I have no knitting to report either. Mostly just effing busy....but wanted to put out there that I am around...I am reading blogs a little...I just have nothing blog-worthy.

Excited to start Rogue for the knitter's olympics...tho, I've been so busy this week I can't imagine how I'm going to finish it, but I don't care at this point...

I did discover that with "rabbit ears" on the TV...I can get NBC and therefore I really can watch the Olympics! Yay!

That's it, end of boring post. I do, however, have a "question of the day":

If you have teenaged children...do you color your hair? Cause, I gotta tell you....Every encounter I have had with my 19yo in the last month has led to me actually FEELING the hair on my head turning gray....She is a lovely, talented, wonderful girl....who is driving me crazy with really poor choices...Like...she can barely pay her rent, but her friend got a new car and so, well of course she wanted a new car too....and so what did she go out and get? A 2001 RED Mustang. I could go on and on about why this is a really poor choice on her part...but what also kills me, is why on earth is anyone financing her? She can hardly support herself. She has been offered so many credit cards it boggles my mind. There is just something so wrong with the picture of credit availability in this country that I can't begin to express all it brings up for me.

Lastly, there is that piece of "I've talked to you 1,000,792 times about getting in over your head...why don't you listen to me?" No, I haven't said it....but I have sure thought it.

Lady Clariol....take my gray away.

The whole credit thing is crazy. Credit card companies set up on campuses and lure in college kids with nifty gifts - surely knowing that many of these kids have no particular financial resources... It's one of the many insane things that drive me nuts...

I am so sick of the teenage angst of my son - gawd - stop it already. He really has it good and doesn't appreciate it , yadda, yadda...

But on the other hand, my sister is dealing with drug addiction with her son - so I'm counting my blessings.

BTW - Got the yarn! Thanks! worked on finishing the multi-directional during the super bowl yesterday.

I'm not coloring my hair. I kinda like the big gray streak over my right eye. I've earned those gray hairs, by god.

My daughter will be 21 in May, and she's still living with me. I wish she'd move out while she still knows everything.

I know what you mean. Credit card debt is higher than ever. The national debt is out of control. America is all about debt. Ack!

Topic change: I just learned to knit last week, and I love it. Do you know of any reasonably priced yarn stores in the Portland area? I have gone to Knit/Purl downtown because it is convenient to work, but it is 'spensive.
