is it bad?

that my stash of scrapbook paper get used more to serve as a backdrop to my knitting progress updates than to create layouts? This is my Summertime Tunic...about 50% done I'd say. Lots and lots (and lots and LOTS) of stockinette in the round but that's ok because when it's this easy, I can read while I knit :)

(frames are from scrapgirls)

I wish I had more news to share...I keep thinking about updating this thing but I've got nada. We're having a pretty low-key summer (the way I like it...and because I know as the boys get bigger, we'll have less time to 'do nothing') Now that we're through the majority of the birthdays, anniversaries and holidays, we don't have much planned. There is the annual Cedar Point trip in a few weeks (falls between the boys birthdays...it's become a regular refrain every time they ask if we can go to CP...'for your birthday') We always look forward to it - hopefully the weather is more cooperative this year (rain and a 50 mph hour wind gusts last year :p)

Jake yesterday (we were talking about...something. Can't remember what now! The point is, I *was* right):

m: I think I'm right
j: I think you are not right!
m: no, pretty sure I'm right. I'm always right ;)
j: no, you're not right!
m: nope, positive I am
j: no you're not
m: yes I am
j: you're fired

No idea where that one came from but it was good for a laugh :)

    I'm roflmbo right now over your conversation with Jake!
    In Feb or March? My mom was in the car with us and J was going on and on about something or other. He said something and my mom said, "You're right" and he replied, "I'm right because I'm always right".
    Well.....grammy.....the wonderful grammy that she is (she is but this, I say with clenched teeth) found this office desk sign that says, "I'm always right"......and gave it to him. So ever since....if we say no, you are not right....he retorts with, "I'm always right because Grammy gave me a sign that says I'm always right"......
    Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice :P
    I keep meaning to scrap that....would you save this comment for me for when I actually get around to it? ;) LOL!
    Good to see an update :)
    ENJOY the "nothings of summer"! I miss them and savor each one we do get :)
