Do I get ‘grownup points’…

<p>…for paying off my credit cards with my tax refund *before* I went shopping…?</p><p>God sometimes I hate being responsible.  I did it within five minutes of finding out that I had received the refund (I have it wired into my account).  I figured this way the pain would be over with somewhat quickly.  Kind of like ripping off a Band-Aid.</p><p>Okay I promised you all some knitting updates and I know you are all hanging on the edge of your seats to see where I’m at…right? ;o)</p><p><a href="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/04-14-06010.jpg" onclick="F1 = window.open(‘/uploads/Photos/04-14-06010.jpg’,’Zoom’,’height=495,width=569,top=144,left=363,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no,resize=1,resizable=1,scrollbars=yes’); return false;"><img width="110" height="95" style="border: 0px none ; float: left; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" src="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/04-14-06010.serendipityThumb.jpg" alt="" /></a>I have one of my embossed leaves socks done with the 2nd cast on and two inches past the ribbing.</p><p>You’ll notice a new item in my left sidebar – the ‘Naughty Chair’ where all bad projects go to sit and think about what they’ve done.

Here’s a hint: It’s not knitting related.</p><p>Spring vacation started today. God help me.</p><p>She’s at her father’s now and is supposed to be there for most of next week. However, last time I received the tearful &quot;I hate him and want to come home&quot; call on Tuesday. Who wants to place bets on what day she calls this week? ;o)</p><p>And now a new feature at JessaLu Knits….</p><p>The stupid teenage admission of the week: <i> </i></p><p><i><span title="My daughter (The Teen)" class="serendipity_glossaryMarkup">Dobby</span>: Mom, can I go online?</i></p><p><i>Me: Have you done all your chores?</i></p><p><i>Dobby: No but I can do them later!</i></p><p><i>Me: You have to do your chores first.</i></p><p><i>Dobby: FINE! I’ll just change the clock on the computer like I always do! (to override my NetNanny settings)</i></p><p><i>*Dobby then gets a stricken ‘ohshit’ look on her face.*</i></p><p><i></i></p><p><i>Me: Okaaaayyyy then. *note to self* Set up MAC address filters and block ‘net access to Dobby’s puter until I turn it on.</i></p><p>Tomorrow I’ll be at the <a target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=1026&amp;entry_id=174" title="http://www.friendsofclermont.org/events/sheep.html" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.friendsofclermont.org/events/sheep.html’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">fiber festival in Germantown, NY</a>.
