Totally wiped.

It's 11:30, I'm completely empty. Wiped. Nuthin' left. I just spent the last 16 hours taking care of 2 very rambunctious little boys with almost no help. Big Brother was here, but he's not a parent and therefore not much help with keeping Thing One and Thing Two reined in. He's pretty good at wrangling them when all else fails, but after all he's just a kid himself. A mouthy and hormonal teen, but even they count as "kids"...for a little while longer anyway. The Hubz is out riding his gixxer, who knows when he'll be in. I'm thinking he has issues with the headlight, if I remember correctly, so he needs to bring his juvenile butt home before he gets hurt.

So, Thing One is in bed, watching Noggin (or Baby No-Doz). It's a rare treat to watch TV at sleep time, but I can't get him to stay back there tonight and I'm about to lose my mind if he marches out here one more time and unsettles Thing Two after I've finally gotten him to lie down peacefully. I need for them to go to sleep because I feel like I've been steamrolled and I need just 30 minutes of peace before I pass out sitting upright in the easy chair, knitting in my lap.

Just in case I didn't mention it before, I'm tired.

*Looking around*

Ooooo, pretty! I like my new digs. I was going to ask what you think, but it really doesn't matter what you think, now does it? We all know people who must ask the internets about everything before they can make a decision. I will not be that chick. So, I like it and that's all that matters.

In other news, I made my first attempt at gradient dyeing yesterday. Without a warp board or anything of that nature, just the slow and tedious way. It took me no less than 5 hours to dye 4 oz of yarn. I don't think I'll be doing that again any time soon. And what's worse? It's ugly. I took gorgeous organic merino and made it ugly. I hide my face in shame.

Well, look who got a blog!

I was sitting here tonight after having just spent $22 on a yard of fabric and thinking "Man, I hope it was worth it!" Then I realized that I wanted to say that to someone - but you just don't call people up in the middle of the night to say stuff like that. It's uncivilized. So, I decided I needed to start a blog so I'd have a place for such randomness. I'm not looking to build readership, or become the Blog Queen™ or anything like that. Just looking to spill my boring randomness and ramble about my projects, my family, and life in general. If you're peaking into my new fishbowl, Hiya! I don't do any tricks, but every once in awhile I like to make a splash!
