I have a headache.
The DH stayed in his working city two hours away due to poor weather conditions. We had freezing rain and now just plain ole' rain. Wet, sloppy, muddy paws rain.
I got up this morning and with my morning coffee walked into the living room. I found water on the floor and couldn't understand where it came from. Looking up, I soon discovered the source of the water. The roof is leaking. Well of course it is. I mean really, it's the new year and so far this year is no improvement from last year.
I called the DH at work and after telling him the new problem I was greeted with a heavy sigh. This will require him to get on a ladder to the roof. Mind you, Mr. has half of one hand and a bad back. I cringe when he gets on a ladder let alone on the roof. But it must be done.
Given the poor economy (which my son so eloquently informed me) must crash before it can fix itself, the deteriorating government etc. Please don't leave nasty comments, I have a headace. I'm disgusted with crooked politicians i.e. Congress who is now going to vote themselves another pay raise, crooked state governors, bail outs to states, automakers, banks etc., I have had enough (foot stomping here). I am older and wiser and I know better than to have the illusion that politicans have/will change.
We tried to cut back on bills by downsizing cable tv only to find our vcr/dvd player decided to zonk. Thank goodness for a dear friend and family member who came through with players so we could watch something. Now the roof. What could possibly be next? I don't even want to know. You warned me Anita..........lol
In the meantime I console myself with my knitting. I enjoyed this bootie pattern so much, I made another pair. They are cutest little booties and a gratifying knit.
Dishcloths are another quick knit and right now that's all I seem to want to do. Zone out and knit quick projects. I'll pick up the socks and sweaters later but right now this is good.
I plan (and you might want to remind me of this later in the year) to have a bag of these ready and waiting to give as gifts next Christmas.
p.s. I have a migraine so I'm going to go rest my poor aching head. No wonder I have a migraine with the way this year is beginning.
