MY LIFE WITH A 10 YEAR OLD AND MY OBSESSIONS....SEWING and KNITTING!

I'm good, how are you?

I'm having trouble posting pictures again, so here's a pictureless post, again. (sorry!)

On Saturday my pizza mom friends and I walked in the Revlon Run/Walk for Women's Cancer, along with 50,000 other people. Literally.....FIFTY THOUSAND! Shawn, an amazing mom to 3 boys (Dylan, the oldest, is in Noey's class) is a one year survivor of breast cancer. She asked us if we would walk to support her. So Lori, Lili, and I joined her at the Los Angeles Coliseum for this amazing walk. It was very moving to be in the sea of people, all ages, sizes, colors, genders, walking the streets of LA. It was incredible. We entered the coliseum to the rocking tunes of Pat Benatar and the cheers of the crowd.

Mother's Day was a nice quiet day. Noey had spent the night at my parents Friday night and came home after I got home from the walk. So it was especially sweet to spend time with her alone on Sunday. I really miss her when she's not here. We made cupcakes and goodies for my mom in the morning and then spent the afternoon at my parents house. Noey made me the cutest little keychain and beautiful card. My mom gave me some yarn money and a knitting bag she made.

On the knitting front, the Top Down Bolero just isn't what I want so I will be frogging it soon. I don't know why I can't get it together with the Araucania Patagonia. I guess one day a pattern will speak to me.

So with that off the needles, I cast on a Cotton Summer Cardigan with Cotton Ease in white cuz I reeeeeaaalllly needed a white cardigan right now!

Joe went back to work last week. (Thank God he's finally off the couch!) he's only supposed to work "part time" and so far he's doing pretty good.

Good on you for supporting your friend in the walk. I think it is fantastic. Paul's cousin's wife had breast cancer a few years ago after her 2nd child, and is now cancer free. I guess the worry is always there though. I am glad that you had a very nice Mother's Day too.
