And people thought I didn't have much to say...imagine that????
Well, we survived the school ski trip. I have to say, the comfort of the seats on the so called "excursion" buses is highly over-rated. I am still trying to get my poor old knees to smarten up. We had one minor injury- one of our boys had a tumble and hurt his knee (not badly-it got worse when the girls were flocking around, and then it got miraculously better....hmmm). There was another "occurrence" that I am still working through. The deal is this-the rentals included skis, helmets, but no poles. When the instructors gave each kid a test, then they either went into a lesson or got their poles to go and ski on the harder hills. Two of the boys performed a wee short cut-they swiped poles from the racks and off they went. The couple (who owned the poles) finally tracked down who had swiped them and came to me. So, we are still working that out. I just don't get it- these kids have everything in the world, and they had to do that. I just don't know what to do about these kids. And now I have another day to stew about it-today is the McGinty Government's "Family Day". I don't really have lots of plans- some marking, some knitting, and then a big family dinner tonight with mom (she is coming here-I think we are doing barbecued shrimp).
On the knitting front- I DID finish a pair of mitts- Schoeller and Stahl Hobby Kids in a blue tweed-I even idiot stringed them!
And for some reaon or other, I can't get blogger to include a picture, or to check spelling. Hmmm- Maybe later!
