Monk'ing around

So, a few quick things:

1) I finished knitting and felting a moebius basket this weekend. . . from a pattern . . . woah.

2) I finished said basket for Nicole's wedding so that Lila can carry it and throw flowers out from it.

3) I finished said basket at a monastic house. (that's where monks live)

4) One of the monks made a very obscure reference to Donny Darko.

5) I am commencing a new basket for myself (I really like the brazenly stolen pattern) but I did increase the size by 1/2 ( I can't be a slave to a pattern more than once); and,

6) I have realized that I really, really like monks.

Idle hands

What can we do today? I have made a grave error. I have gotten out of bed without a plan for the children today.

That means I don't know what we are going to do today. They are running circles around me and banging my computer.

I fear there will be rope and fire soon.

Will no one save me?

I am dooo. . .

It's raining, it's pouring. . .

Can you be electrocuted from lightning when you are on a wireless connection?

Hell-I-Reckon. . .

So, I'm supposed to be taking this online class for my work (teaching) and I can't get the dog gone thing to start. Do you think that automatically eliminates me for teaching online? That is what the class is supposed to teach me?

Sheer stupidity, isn't it?

Slip sliding away. . .

You know what I find very sad, slipping in and out of people's lives.

If you know me, you know that I am a person who likes most people and likes to be around most poeple. Often. It could be said that I am a person who doesn't like to be alone, but that Is really not true. It is hard for me to hang out with my small children for long periods of time alone, but I have come to believe that that is relatively common. More on that later.

But just now I feel really estranged from many people who had been relatively integral in my life. I don't know why and I don't know how to fix it, because I guess I don't know if these people want it to be fixed. I wonder if it is my children.
