So it's "Girl's Weekend" this weekend. Several of my knitting friends and I are travelling to the beach for the weekend. We have, of course, mapped all the knitting stores in the area and on the way and some serious shopping will certainly ensue.
Tonight is the last knit night at The Purly Gates. We are closing this weekend. I'm sure it is going to be an emotional night. I've come to know and love so much that sweet little shop.
I've been shopping and have most of my summer wardrobe taken care of (need at least one more nice blouse) and I'm glad to have it over with - I hate trying on clothes. Oh and BTW if it ever comes up that I want to go to Lane Bryant with BOTH my kids in tow will someone please whack me in the back of the head until I come to my senses? They were good, but it was just hard.
It's a rough time of year for me. My parents' wedding anniversary was April 24 - they would have been married 43 years. My birthday and Mother's Day are still hard - even over a year later.
Andrea, my heart is with you and your mom today. Celebrate your memories and know you are loved!
Retail therapy being what it is during this difficult time, I have a bunch of great new clothes, new haircut & color (OK same color it USED to be before the grey took over), and a new I-Pod from my hubby - early birthday present - I LOVE it!
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we travel this weekend. I'll have pictures of our adventures in yarn when we return.
I'll keep you posted!
