Monday, Monday, Monday.

I am so mad right now.  I thought I'd get to be relaxing tonight with my netbook on my lap surfing the net on the couch.  I finally got around to sending it back to be repaired two weeks ago and I got the confirmation email on friday that it was fixed and on its way back to me.  Horray!  Not so fast.  The fedex man arrived at my house bright and early this morning and handed me my love.  I came in and ripped the box open, raced out to find the charger in the living room and plugged her in.  Pushed the power button and nothing.  WTF?  The paper that was in the box said it was repaired and tested.  So I messed with the cord, unplugged it and plugged it back in and even tried several different outlets.  Still nothing.  So I had to call Acer.  OMG.  Seriously, would it kill you to have a human being answer the phone?!  After screaming at the phone I finally got a real live person and they decided its the power cord that is bad.  Seriously?!  I paid $30 to ship the damn thing back to you and now its the power cord?!  I know the plug was bad because the cord wouldn't even stay in the computer towards the end, it would fall right back out.   So now I have to pay to ship my part of the cord back before they will send me a new one.  This is seriously starting to be a pain in the rear end.  ::Sigh::  I don't care at this point I just really, really want my netbook back. 

Then this afternoon I got the chance to go in and help out in Logans class.  They were studying Johnny Appleseed and the teacher had each student bring apples in today and she made applesauce.  I went in to help her get it dished out.  OMG.  Yeah, she needs help. I personally could NEVER be a teacher.  My child is not an angel not at all.  Wow.  All I can say is these kids would never have acted this way with Logans teacher from last year.  So I told her to please email me anytime she wants some extra help I'd be glad to come in whenever I could.  Logan did get in trouble last week, he was being disruptive in class but honestly the way some of those kids were today was ridiculous.  I really hope she contacted their parents like she did me about Logan. 

Knitting is going well, I think I am FINALLY going to be getting back to my knitting group this Friday.  I haven't been there in FOREVER!   I'm still working on my item for the Halloween vamp swap I'm doing on Ravelry, when I'm finished I will post a pic of it and everything I got for my partner.  I hope she likes everything!

Busy, Busy, Busy

So...its been a pretty busy week here at our house. For starters last Thursday was the day I had surgery to have my gallbladder removed. Everything went well and uneventful. I'm still a little sore & tired, trying to get back into the swing of everything.

Football is still going...I can't wait until its over I really, really can't. Though I can't complain too much I think the last day I was there was last Tuesday, I do really miss going. I even had to miss a game on Saturday which I'm upset about but I'm planning on going to this weeks game. All I keep telling myself, after this weeks game, only 3 more to go!! YAY!! I really don't hate it that much and I might be a little sad if Logan does decide not to play next year. Its fun & exciting. Just wish some of the people and organization could be a little different.

My house is a total disaster.  Don't get me wrong, Ryan was doing a lot to help out when I first came home, but there's just all those other things he just doesn't 'see'.  Oh just looking at it all makes me tired...

That is just a small glimpse of the mess that is my house.  The train table that has turned into the catcher of everything that comes into the house...

I think Cole has the right idea on how to spend the day.  And of course you can notice more of the mess....

 I would MUCH rather spend my day playing with this beautiful yarn.  This picture doesn't even come close to doing it justice.  A close friend of mine dyed this lovely stuff up for me because I needed it for a swap I'm participating in on Ravelry.  I really am going to have a hard time giving it up...

I guess I could go start the dishwasher and feel a little productive before I sit down to work on letters I want to get sent out and my reading then hopefully I can sit down and work on some knitting :)

Update & Catching Up

I can't believe its been so long since I've made a 'real' post. Things have been CRAZY!!

First things first...

Football is still going strong. I'm so glad we are down to three practices a week though. Though I am getting more and more turned off this sport the more I am around some of these parents. They seem to think their children are going from the smurf division straight to the NFL. I haven't seen any scouts there yet but I could be wrong ;)

I am a little upset with his coaches. The smurf division is for LEARNING. They don't even keep score. Well let me clarify that..they aren't SUPPOSED to keep score but we all know they do. Logan and a few of the same kids are not being put into games or even the practice scrimmage games much at all. Its ridiculous. You can bet though the coaches kids' are in ALL the time. So yeah, I think an email to the coaches is in order. I've heard that the head smurf coach has even noticed it and has told our coaches to put these kids in more and they haven't. I'm planning on going to practice tomorrow night, I'll have to see what I can find out.

Second thing...

I'm going to be having some surgery this week. That came out of nowhere, right?! Its nothing major, I'm having my gallbladder out on Thursday. I've been having some issues the past few weeks, actually in hindsight the past few months. I went to the dr about two weeks ago and after some blood work and other testing they've found I have gallstones. So the surgeon suggested that this is the next logical step because once you have one attack chances are you will have more. Let me tell you I'd rather not go through that again. Though I am a little freaked at surgery, I've never been cut open, even a little bit before. Plus she told me I'll have to spend the night in the hospital. So not looking forward to that.

On the knitting front...

I've started working on some things. I have a number of gifts I need to get working on. I don't want to run into the mad rush two weeks before Christmas this year deciding that I need to knit 15 different things. Though everything I've been working on can't really be discussed here because some of the recipents read my blog.

I've also had more decluttering progress but I haven't updated that blog in awhile. Hoping to get back into it soon. I'm still hoping to have a yard sale sometime before it gets too cold out. Not sure when that will happen with football games on Saturdays!

Boost Mobile

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Boost Mobile. All opinions are 100% mine.

If everyone is like me out there, it seems like my cell phone bill is getting more and more expensive each year.  I just found out about this really cool plan that is making having a cell phone, will all of the latest features more affordable.  It is
Boost Mobile.  They have a lot of the latest phones with all of the added features inclued in one low monthly price!

For example, I've recently been looking into getting a Blackberry.  Well with my current cell phone company I just can't justifiy the added expense.  Boost Mobile makes it easily affordable, their unlimited Blackberry plan is even cheaper than my NON smartphone plan from my current company!

Along with making the latest in cell phone technology afffordable they also make it easier to pay your bill with  Re-Boost.  You can pay your bill online with automatic payments, a one time payment online.  Or you can pay in person or online.  Friends & family can also put money into your account towards your phone bill!  How great would that be?!

You can also access twitter & facebook from your Boost Mobile phone. Its become second nature to me when I'm out and about with free time, especially at Logan's football games, to check and update my facebook and twitter accounts.  I've been dangerously close to going over my monthly mb's on my current plan, it would be great to have unlimited access to my social networking sites each month.

I wish my contract with my current company was up soon because I know exactly where I will be heading in the future for my cell phone.  Just browsing through their site ordering, activating and paying your bill is a piece of cake. I will definetly be getting that Blackberry I've been drooling over!
