It’s finals week.
Yeah. So, that means that most of the time Paul is:
A) At work
B) At School
D) All of the above
If you guessed D, well then, wow! You are right. I am ready for finals to be done so I can have my husband back. Not that I mind that he is doing well in school and studying to ace his finals. No, no. This is good! So I try to be supportive and make him little snacks. Like cookies, with a tall glass of milk!
That there, that is the best cookie recipe I’ve ever, EVER, ever made. It’s Mrs. Jack’s recipe, and you girls from Faith Pres, it’s in the church cookbook! I’ve honestly never tasted a better recipe for chocolate chip cookies. (And it uses a whole 4 sticks of butter, so they better be good!) Let me know if you want the recipe and I will send it to you, if you are one of the unlucky few to have a church cookbook (worth their weight in gold, I tell you).
So last night, while cutting up an eggplant, I sliced my left thumb up real bad. (Not bad enough to need stitches, thank goodness, which is good cuz my insurance was up the end of November) but just bad enough to prevent me from doing normal things like washing dishes, or knitting at a regular speed. But there is so much yet to be done by Christmas…. sorry family, I had great plans for knitted gifts for you, but there are so many Christmas orders that I just couldn’t do it… so instead of being awesome and making everyone handmade gifts, well, we are lame and are giving you store bought things.
This picture sums up how I feel about:
1. Having two bum thumbs (yeah, my right one is still all messed up, too, FROM AUGUST!)
2. Not having time to knit gifts this year (I even had the yarn bought and the patterns picked out!)
3. My husband having finals week
So there it is, all of my whining is done. Back to regular knitting related posts tomorrow.
