Camo Sox & other stuff

my poor joe still has such swollen feet & the blue stretchy sox I knitted were "all stretched out" said he. now why on earth would he wear them out, & especially to the drs. office??? they were for lounging around the house!! so I started another pair of stretchy regia but w/less stitches. I just finished both heels & will knit round & round till the cuff is done. hopefully I can finish them before I leave tomorrow.
this week will be very busy. I stay in a motel during the week because I still haven't been able to find a place to live up north yet...just too darn busy traveling w/the job!!! this week I'll be upstate in ANOTHER hotel while we install a new phone system....hopefully, joe will call a few of the apts we circled in the newspaper because thie is my last week in the motel unless I pay for another month & it is exorbitant!!!! I'm thankful for the new job but wish the excitement would end long enough for me to catch my breath.

today I got to meet my dear friend Maggie's "mommy"...yes I said mommy. Maggie hates it when I call her mother that. must be why I continue to do it!!! anyway, she was a doll & I'm so glad I finally had the pleasure of meeting her.

also got to see kim...she popped into the shop today....sorry I was so busy, sweetie!!!! but it was great seeing you & let's plan for a knitting day at Border's or somewhere 1 of these sundays, ok??!!!

then Wabbit breezed in along w/her honeypie Dan & the 2 furbabies, Cole & his son Chance...they were looking all handsome having just been groomed & coming from attending a golden retriever social...the pups looked handsome, not wabbit & dan, altho they looked good too.

ok then, that's about it...I'm still hunting for the darn camera because I have lots of pics I want to take...but it'll just have to wait I I ever do what I'm supposed to WHEN I'm supposed to??? no. & no reason to start now. I hope you like the pics of the sox!!!

Nice socks on your blog!
So glad I could see it and place it on mine!

Life is good when knitting happens!

Yummy looking socks. Bet they will be warm and cozy for Joe's wittle footsies. I'm sure he is hoping you get them done before leaving too.

Sorry about all the problems trying to find new lodgings and such. That has to be rough on both of you. But I know things will work out eventually, and I hope that is sooner rather than later.

Have a safe trip back. :)

finally! i thought i'd never have time to check your blog! this working for a living thing is really getting out of hand.

it was GREAT seeing you on saturday! and don't worry about being busy, you were working for goodness sakes! and it's not like you didn't take a few moments to give me goodies and help me find my yarn!

so, we really do have to plan a sunday at borders or jessica's sometime soon. things are just so hectic and it's hard to know one week to the next what the weekend has in store.

sure hope you find something up north soon. i'd hate to think of you in a hotel for much longer. and you need access to your computer every day! not just saturday!

email me when you get back from your off-site gig. i'll be around.

Oh Ollie, Cody said you spelled his name wrong and that you must not love him anymore. He's very hurt. And that's not like you.

Trying to figure out how socks with fewer stitches could stretch out bigger for poor Joe's swollen tootsies.

Have you STILL not found a place to live up there? Now that it is getting hotter and the snowbirds are leaving, it should be easier.
