Some Interesting Things!

Surely, I think to myself, SURELY there is something interesting to blog about! Interesting interesting, not just informational. Then I went out with some girlfriends last night, one of whom is now the infamous Arleta, instead of the Motley Arleta. She makes delicious yummies, while I stop and buy chips to bring along. She shows up with curled hair and makeup on, while my hair is still wet from the last minute shower (sans makeup, as well). But it's not just her cooking, fashion sense and yarn dying that I admire. It's the way she will perform impromptu lessons on a bar dance floor, on the proper way to shimmy and shake, much to the delight of the band. OH, yeah. Go, girl. It's just as well I don't have a picture, as so far this has been a pretty “G” rated site.

I've been knitting dishcloths and mittens lately, as once again pattern following has become difficult. Drama club is revving up, so there will be more attention paid to that for a bit. Oh, and I've been spinning. I took my spinning to a birthday party last week, and to a soccer game yesterday, and finally one of my friend's husbands confided to her, "Carrie will spin anywhere!" Heh. It's good to be known for something.

Here's a photo of my kid's first injury in soccer. She got the wind knocked out of her. That's a scary thing, and to cheer her up, I promised to blog her misery. She laughed, and thankfully the game went on. She's a natural athlete, and very fun to watch. Plus I learned that it's perfectly okay to scream with excitement at a soccer game, where it's not necessarily allowed at a teeball game. See? I'm never too old to learn...


And I asked a little girl to take a picture of me spinning, as I'd like to just catalogue all the different places where I show off a spindle. Unfortunately, this is what I got. Lol! That's what I get for trying to show a pic of myself. Have a great day!

Hehehe, I am just going to say, you're lucky my dumb camera phone has no flash. No just kidding, you're so good. Wasn't that fun, though? I haven't been out with the girls in forever!

Glad kid #2 is ok, we can call her SoccerStar!

p.s. Yes, I had a little eyeshadow on, but you know I'm way too busy (lazy) to curl my hair! I just took it out of the regular ole pony tail. It's great to hear that I looked good, though! Thanks!!

I scream at all the games, so I'm probably just one huge embarrassment, LOL!

Good for the infamous Arleta...I'll have to go see what that's about.

That's cute, she took a picture of the spinning!

Well, at least she got the spindle in the picture :)

Good for you, spinning in public!

I didn't know you're not supposed to scream at T-ball games. I scream excitedly at all my kids' games.

I have enjoyed catching up on your blog! The spinning looks great. Consider yourself invited to our spinning party next year!
