I'm going slightly Mad

I'm knitting with just one needle,
I'm unravelling fast.
Freddie, I know just how you feel!

The kids have been home an entire week and already I am in need of a long holiday. The kids are driving me loopy. In addition to them being home 24/7, this past week and a half hasn't been the best for me in other areas.

Just before school ended I was generally screwed over at work. As a result, I've been upset, angry, frustrated and generally ticked off. For those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile, I'm not talking about Knit-Knackers. I'm referring to another place that I haven't motioned and now there will be no need to mention
them at all.

What I need, I guess, is a diversion. Leave it to DH and DS to provide me with one. For the longest time, DH has been getting his head shaved in the summer. Even DS wants his hair short. So how to keep your kids entertained on Canada Day???? You let them shave your head.

What can I say. He's a brave man.

It was at this point that I took over. After all, he has no plans to audition for a role as a member of a biker gang in a Mad Max type flick any time soon.

DH has spent the last several weeks roofing our house, hence the farmer's tan. He's not really a red neck but does look slightly odd with a tanned face and white head. Snicker :)

Until next time
Yours in Yarn,
The Fibreholic

First of all, that is one very brave husband you have. Glad you took over. LOL.
Hope your day goes better. If the job is that difficult, bye is a good word.
Hope your knitting goes better also. I know the feeling well.

Oh, I am cranky too. I have not transitioned well to this summer nonsense. I'm sorry about your job angst. I hope everything gets better soon.

Want me to take em out for ya? Seriously, I'm totally ready to sacrifice myself for your happiness!

Okay - maybe not quite ready to sacrifice my freedom for you, but I'll give them a mental punch okay?

Your DH is very brave indeed!
