37,444 yards is not the amount I have walked this week, or even this month. 37,444 yards is a rough estimate of how many yards of yarn I have in my stash. 37,444 yards is about 21.28 miles, astounding I know.
I decided to make a list of all the yarn I had in hopes I would be excited about it and get motivated. You know me and lists, I like to make them for every occasion possible. I did this a year ago but have given thousands of yards of yarn away, well I have added a few thousand too. I decided I needed to have an accurate account of just what exactly I had in my stash.
I have 55 different types of yarn which makes me wonder why I never seem to have the yarn I need for a project. That is down from 63 types last year even though I have added loads of new yarn to my stash this year.
So now you are witness to exactly how much yarn I have. The only yarn not added were little bits and bobs of leftovers in a basket on one of the white shelves above. I am coming clean with my stash and am determined to get more used up before I can buy more.
Of course right after I made that decision I got an email that my nearest yarn store is having an anniversary sale this Saturday. I will not be deterred even with the chance to get yarn on sale. Actually most of the yarn I have bought has been on sale so as you can see that only leads to trouble.
Some little one I know got a new set of wheels. This was my next door neighbor's car when she was little. She is now able to drive a real car with a parent so you can see how old this is. It is in perfect condition and the battery still works. But there is a catch, only big boys who wear underpants can get in it, that is the rule isn't it?
I know you all think I am mean, well I think so too but I have to find something to motivate Little Buddy to get more interest in being a big boy. We will see how this works, so far nothing else has.
I thank you all for your well wishes for Mr.22. He went to the burn clinic at the major teaching hospital near him yesterday. They were thrilled with how he has healed. He is on no restrictions anymore, but I told him to take it easy, that skin is very, very fragile. If I showed you what it looks like now you would be horrified, but it is better and that is what is important. Now to find something else to worry about........
