Happy Birthday to Me

I have to say it, because my family never remembers. (All men remember?) Every since a family friend moved from the area to teach in southwest Michigan, no one reminds them. When she was around, it was great, because she also sold Avon and she would just demand money from older son to buy a present.
But I can't really complain. My Sadie wool from Kelly, her rescue mommy, should be coming any day now.
And, on the NASCAR front, the best of presents----WOOO HOOOO!! My man Mark (the kid) Martin WON!!!!!! Much as I hate the night races, because I can hardly stay awake, I had no problem keeping my eyes open for this race. I knew it was coming, and am so excited for his victory. He is such a clean racer and so gracious whatever happens. I was totally elated to see him win.
One other present I am getting myself. I recently checked the Elizabeth Zimmermann DVD out from the library, after waiting quite a while to get it. It is the Knitting Workshop DVD. I love it. It was really strange, to listen to her, and fairly awe inspiring. I may sound crazy, but she has been such an inspiration to my knitting that I felt like it was my Grandma sitting down and giving me knitting guidance. I loved the DVD so much, I ordered them from KnitPicks to have my own copy, of both the Knitting Workshop, and Knitting Around.

Aww Man! I'm sorry that the boys have let you down. I will do my best to remind them again in the future!
I always seem to forget that your birthday is on my parent's anniversary!
