Virtual Circle Indeed!

My favorite midwest moshin' mommy does this thing on her blog she calls "Virtual Circle" wherein she poses a question to the cyberworld usually pertaining to a knitting question she has. We all then chime in and comment giving our two cents.

Hilariously enough, the Virtual Circle ringmaster herself came up with the answer to my knob problem!


There it is! Stacie has the same stove/oven and was able to locate her model number. Hey! This makes us oven twins! Oven Twins Activate!

Of course before she chimed in, I got impatient and ordered a different knob. What can I say? The siren's lure of the thought of freshly baked cookies is a strong one.

We'll see if the knob I ordered works or not. If it doesn't, no biggie. The place I ordered from has a 30 day money back/exchange policy. I can always exchange it for the right knob. Which of course costs twice as much and has to be special ordered.

So hold on to your knobs Stacie! They're precious commodity!

No real knitting to speak of. I've been busy getting odds and ends dealing with moving taken care of.

Today I get to go down to the Public Health Clinic and get Chunky immunized because Dr. Mad Scientist's health insurance doesn't kick in until April 1 and Chunky starts his new preschool April 2.

Oh boy. This should be fun.

But I'll also be able to get his kindergarden registration done too. They only process kindergarden registrations from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the cusp of the waning moon. It's very biased against working parents. I'd like to get it taken care of before I find a job.

I'm sure I'll have many exciting stories from the clinic to share tomorrow.

One good thing about not working right now is getting your "admin" stuff taken care of. I don't think anything is very condusive to a work schedule:(

What kind of cookies are you going to bake first with your new fancy knob?
Forget the clinic, the good stories come from the school. I almost got into a fist fight with the secretary when I went in to register my oldest for kindergarden. Man that woman was a wench hopped up on a power trip being left all alone in charge of the office. You're going to love having a child in public school:p

I anticipate exciting new Chunky stories ahead! A new preschool, and the beginning of kindergarten: fantastic fodder for hilarity, I hope.
Best of luck with the registering. My mum has been a school secretary for decades, and she says kindergarten registration season is a particularly crazy one!

AH! Ha! Your knitting Buddies came through! May your fist batch of cookies be smelled all the way up here! I think Monster Cookies would do the trick! Good luck to Chunkie, I hope that he doesn't have to get too many shots. Make sure that you bring all his paper work to the school for his registration. Love, Mom

Welcome to the world of school. Remind me on Sunday to tell you the yelling match I had with the assistant principal over the times of PTA meetings.....

My DPS office was the same way...which is why I ended up with a DL photo of me with my hair in a pony, wearing my lifeguarding tank. Grumble....
