I'm off work today.
But I had to go to Moochie's daycare to pay the week's daycare because although I put the check in his lunchbox Friday, I forgot to take it out and put it in the drop box.
On my way back home this morning from the office, I grabbed my cell phone, which, if you know me, I hardly use. It's for Dr. Mad Scientist and Kid-Calls only. I.e., "Honey, can I ask you to pick up the kids because I'm running late?" or "Mrs. Bezzie, Chunky just blew chunks in the classroom, you need to come pick him up."
No one every calls me. Which is fine. I've got a drug dealer pay as you go stupid-phone that just makes and receives calls. I hardly ever look at it when it's the weekend because I don't have to.
But for some reason I pulled it out of my purse on the way home from dropping off the Mooch payment this morning.
And there was a voicemail.
A pipe had burst and the office administrator called to tell me my desk had "extensive damage" and suggested I might want to come in to check things out before Tuesday.
I stopped by the apartment to let the boys know where I was going and headed off to work on my day off.
Ugh. What a war zone.
This week is going to be a Nightmare. Especially since Big Boss's office was untouched. He's going to expect me to work like normal, when a virtual water bomb went off at my desk and where can they relocated me to? They have no idea yet. Nice!
Anyway at least my weekend was nice!
I met up with Chris and we did a little bit of the Northern New Jersey Yarn Crawl.
We started at our old favorite, Angelfire Studios
where I bought these lovely skeins.
That's some Spud and Chloe sock yarn. I've already cast on. This yarn was just what I needed to restart my sock mojo.
We then ventured on to a store that was new to both of us--The Blue Purl in Madison.
Very nice shop. Spacious and a generous offering of standard and not-so standard yarn brands.
I fell in love with a store sample knit up by the baby yarn. Fell in love so hard I bought the pattern book AND the recommended yarn.
I was hooked because all the patterns in the book are up to seven-year-old sizes.
I really wanted to buy the blue yarn you see the sweater knit in there, but alas the store only had three balls--not four as a Moochie-next-winter-sized sweater would take. The clerks sold me on the greeny-blue color instead.
Plus--they even noticed when I was checking out that the four balls I had picked out were different dye lots and replaced them with four of the same dye lots from the back room.
It was a great day and I had a lot of fun hanging with Chris (without a little man of some shape or size tagging along!).
Lord knows I'm going to need all the pretty yarn to keep me sane this upcoming week!!!
