Addicted to Knitting

shopped till I dropped.

Posted on: August 6, 2008

Yesterday was my monthly trip to the city for supplies. This always seems like such a great idea till the day is over and I am trying to put away $250 of groceries from Cosco. I go with my parents to do this and that is good and bad. Always good to spend time with them and at their ages the days are numbered we get together. Yesterday was going to be girls day out. Mom, me and Child of Clay. I ended up taking Jasbo too!

We started out at Ross. What a great place to get school clothes. My boys don’t ever need as many as CoC. She is starting high school this year and that makes it more important than ever to have “clothes”. She is a good little shopper and very thrifty. We spent $138 and got for her:3 pairs of jeans, a top and a zip up hoodie, for middle son: socks, underwear, shoes and a cool billabong shirt, and Jasbo got shoes, socks and underwear, I got some of those magazine stored boxes in hot pink for my knitting mags. I think we did really well!

I was dissapointed that I missed out on any craft/knitting stores but I spent my money at Sally Beauty Supply. Now if I could have one or two people need a highlight done I could recoup and shop online.

The contest is also doing well. If you are doing one yourself and want to increase traffic try this (Thanks Abigail!) I have been deluged with sudden comments. Perhaps new friendships will be formed from this.

I wrote a nice little post yesterday and published it but apparently wordpress ate it as it is gone. I was telling you all about my insanity. I have been sweating perspiring at an alarming rate even at night and having these weird mood swings. I cannot seem to handle chaos at all. I was telling a friend about this and she told me I was having menopause. What? I am only 42 with a preschooler at home. This can’t be true. But alas, I think it is. I am not a bit happy about this but ,sigh, what can a gal do? I am going to see a Dr. and see if I can get a little help with this. I HATE the thought of taking hormones but I may have to. I want to check out natural alternatives but since I am on antidepressants I will see what the Dr. orders.

Great job shopping!!!! I love it when good bargains can be found!

Yikes! menopause at 42?? I am just a few years behind you..when did your mom go through it? (ask her) My mom was in her early 50’s..she says if i am luckyt and like her it will make me “comfortable” as we are both always cold, lol. You scored big time at Ross…love it there…shoes! So are you a stylist? I work in a day spa as a nail tech/eyelash artist. I have been enjoying reading your blog!

I haven’t been to blogspot, but I use to keep track of all the blogs I read. It makes it easier to keep track of them ๐Ÿ™‚

I went into menopause at 39 and Iam going to be 41 in october and I have a 2 year old and almost 4 year old at home I was so surprised.Hugs Darcy

Ask about the estrogen patch. I started wearing the patch at about your age. It doesn’t interfer with other meds and you’ll never know it’s there. Hope things smooth out for you soon! I hate those hot flashes!! Do you have leg cramps too?

Hi again,

My birthday is Nov 22 (you mentioned in mail that yours was the 23). And yes, the Thanksgiving birthday being close to normal gift-giving holidays really stinks. My sister’s birthday is in April. We would both get the same holiday present and I would be told that mine was “extra special” because it was my birthday and Xmas present combined. Like I was too stupid to notice that she got the same sort of thing I did and in April, she got her real birthday present.

My daughter, luckily, has a birthday in February (near Valentine’s day so I hope she doesn’t get cheated by her boyfriend, but I bet she does ๐Ÿ™‚ )
