This week has been the week for people being put on notice for me. I don’t know what it is – maybe it is the panic of knowing that school starts back up on Monday? Post-traumatic stress disorder over the craziness of last semester? I don’t know. All I know is that I actually posted “Notice” signs in my house on Wednesday. Alerting my family that we are in a period of mandatory housework, and everyone MUST help. (Everyone. There are three of us. Everyone is a little overkill, but it is what I used.) It has worked some, but there is still a lot left to do. We won’t be done by Sunday, but at least we’ve made progress.
Now, thanks to a nudge from Julia, I’m putting those Mason-Dixon gals on notice. Ann? Kay? Women with three letter names? (Three must be today’s number!) We NEED the Perfect Sweater. Unlike Julia, I haven’t bought the yarn for it yet. Back when the details of the Perfect Sweater was being hashed out, I wasn’t a loyal M-D Groupie like I am now. But I have heard tales of the Perfect Sweater. And even though I haven’t actually knit a sweater yet, I am ready. Nervous, but ready. Knowing that it is the Perfect Sweater takes some of the pressure off of me, because how can I go wrong if it is Perfect?
Let’s finish the Perfect Sweater Pattern and celebrate democracy by the November election! How is that for a deadline? November 2nd. Hurry and I can wear my perfect sweater to cast my vote for the next governor of Texas.
If you would like, I can make a fancy sign using highlighters, a pen (because green highlighter doesn’t show up well on its own) and a torn half sheet of paper. That is what my family got for their notice sign. Whatever it takes. We need the Perfect Sweater!
Now I’m off to see if the podcast file is ready to be uploaded. Yes, yes, it is coming today! More Pointy Sticks!
