Walmart went bi
I’m such a good girlfriend I made The Paul and I both salads for lunch tomorrow even though I was really tired. Spinach salads with chicken and cucumbers and all the good stuff.
I also just spent almost $50 on Craftsy for four kits. One for a slouchy beanie, one for a pair of comfy socks, one for a pair of fingerless mittens, and one for a cardigan. Technically it’s a dude cardigan, but I’m sure it will work for me. Part of me feels really bad for being selfish, but the other part of me is super excited for more things to make!! I’m about a quarter of the way done with the legwarmers I started last week and I’m totally hoping to have them done soon as it’s going to become necessary for me to have them soon.
#Wall decals about bible verses will class up any kitchen #You should come to my Thirty-One party
I can’t stop. There are too many:
#I’m the best mom on this field trip and everyone knows it #Have you read Eat, Pray, Love? #Let’s get lattes after Zumba! #Gluten causes Autism #I will have him pulled out of your class #Oh shoot, I forgot I volunteered to bring brownies to faith group tonight #We don’t let him watch more than one hour of TV a day #Stick figure family window sticker #(whispers behind hand) you’ve got to read 50 Shades of Grey
Forgive me. I am a mother, and I walk among these women every day. I have adopted their ways as a form of camouflage.
ITS BACK AND IT GOT BETTER
minervadashwood a dit : I feel you on #1 & 8. I think the answer to #2 is 3 times the length of the cast on edge. So a 10-inch blanket would need a 30-inch starter tail….but maybe that’s wrong??
Even if I measure I always end up with way too much. Like when I cast on for a hat (say, 80 stitches over four needles), no matter how tightly I wrap the yarn, by the time I make my way around the first round to the last stitch, I’ll have an extra six inches of yarn in the gap. And I think that’s not how it’s supposed to work.

10 of my curiosities
1. How do people make phone calls without a script in front of them? The Paul does it all the time and I just sit there and stare at him. Like, his thought progression is “I have a question. I will call the place and ask the question. *calls place and asks question*” and it does not compute in my mind.
2. How do I cast on a large amount of stitches in the round and not end up with so much extra yarn?
3. Pokemon conspiracy theories.
4. Making my own sourdough starter culture.
5. When did driving a car become like a pinnacle of independence/being an adult
and how do I get around that?
6. How do people use Linux and will they teach me?
7. Why is it so much easier to change your name because you’ve gotten married than if you want to change your name for any other reason?
8. What would I be like without anxiety?
9. Historic architecture/cemeteries.

I found out that if you give your tomato plant adequate water and fertilizer you run the risk of it never flowering because consistently comfortable conditions convince the plant that there is no environmental pressure to spread and reproduce.
You can literally be a helicopter tomato parent and grow a spoiled directionless manchild tomato plant.
