And Yeah 3 day weekend! Labor day Luau here I come :D
Tonight is my son's first home game of the season! I'm soo excited, I can't remember the last Varsity game I've been to, but it would probably be accurate to say I had a trombone in my hand!
They are supposed to set aside an area of the stands just for parents, so that should be nice!
I'm going to try to stop by cc Saturday edition this week to show off my first sock, started second sock and finished giganto blankie!
Then the Las Vegas Showgirlz are playing the New Mexico Burn!
I'm going to try to finally finish my bathroom redo on Sunday! My brother and his family are going to be here in a couple weeks, and I would really like to have that done! My hubby mentioned working on my bike that day, so we'll see what happens.
Then Monday is LABOR DAY! No work, and hangin' out at my best friend's pool, eating way yummy food! A couple of my teammates are Hawian, so they are helping with some recipes!

Not to mention what football has done to my weekends!
Well, our game against LA was this week. We did not win, but I think we played much better this week than we did last week!
It started and ended with a 5 hour bus trip! I'm glad that I got to learn the "bring a pillow" lesson on the short trip!
Our next game is here in Vegas this Saturday against New Mexico (no, I do not know why LA and New Mexico have the same colors?).
Please come see us if you can, we are going to win this one!!
I finished my FIRST sock! Alas, the poor guy will probably never get a mate. On the way to LA, I started my next sock. I am planing on this one to be the start of my first pair! It is in Lion brand Microspun Royal blue. It is going to be a leg warmer/ sandle sock thing. I am making up the pattern for the leg warmer part as I go, and I am going to put a "cuff" half way down the foot and not put a toe on it... if you can't picture it, that's ok, I'll post pics of the progress as I make it :) Has anyone else worked with this yarn? It is very "splitty"! There was about 3 yards of yarn balled up and shoved in the center of the skein, and I have come across 3 knots already! What the ?? I like the yarn though, so I will tough through this pair!
Giganto blankie got some work done on it yesterday. I can't believe the wedding is only 12 days away! -2 Fridays for Jake's football, -1 Saturday for my game, - 6 weekday nights for football practice, and -1 for the Labor Day Luau (woo hoo). So what does that leave me with; tonight, Sunday, and umm.. that's it! WHAT!! I think I need to go home sick!!
My son had his first Varsity Game this weekend! I didn't get to go to it :( It was in UTAH and I wouldn't have made it home in time to leave for my game :(
He won though!!! woo hoo!
Last but not least, the kids started back to school today! This is the middle one's last year :D
Well, that pretty much brings me up to date! I will try to post some pics later this week.

Work was hecktic all week. We were trying to get the little bugs out after our dark week projects!
Friday was a nice break though! I was out at the lake doing my "advanced diver" dives. I did my deep dive, 70' baby, and a photography dive! I will try to post some of the pics I took when I get them from the instructor!
Football practice was intence last week preping for our first game Saturday! I'm not going to tell you who won yet, I don't want to ruin it for the people that want to watch it on TV, Tuesday night on channel 19!
I HAVE PICTURES!!
Friday night we had a team dinner.
This is our lovely QB and one of our linemen.
Here's some more of my teammates!
On Saturday morning, we had a free football clinic for girls 6-17. I hope the girls had as much fund as we did :D
Two of our linemen were out even though it was their birthday!
This is what the day was all about :D
Oh yeah, and we were in the paper!
At the game, my hubby and daughter took some pics. They got some good ones of my fans ariving!
And of the team standing still..
But unfortunately, most of the pics were blurry :(
Atleast one of them turned out artsie!
My hubby is so great! He has been moving right along on my bike. It should be done in the next week or so!! I can't wait to go for a ride :D Ya'll are going to flip when you see this bike! Soon I'm going to stop posting pics so that it'll be a surprise!
He made even more progress than this yesterday, but I didn't take any pics. :( I'm sorry!
I got more work done on giganto blankie, that wedding is only 2 and half weeks away!!! I laid it out last night when I was out of time, and I am alot farther along than I thought I was! I should be able to get a few hours on it tonight!
There are a couple of guys here at work that are expecting little ones anythime now, I need to find more time to crochet! I have some away games coming up, hopefully I can crochet on the bus without getting motion sick!
Well, I have "rescue diver" training this week, so I need to go get my book work done!

My hubby has been keeping a steady pace on my bike, even though I have had football practice and had to work alot of overtime recently. :(
My hubby picked up the motor on Saturday afternoon, here are some artsy pics of the heads.
This angle shows the very good polishing job he did!
One of my club sisters and I helped him paint the motor today!
This is what the top end will look like assembled!
P, if you are reading this, I LOVE your new house! Thanks for all the stuff!
Well, I got a call about an hour ago, letting me know that tomorrow, work is going to SUCK! So I better get to bed.

Our first game is a week from tomorrow!! I hope to see alot of you there!
I will have my FIRST sock there if anyone wants to see it :D
But giganto blanket has to stay home! hahaha
I was reading the yarn harlot today, she was talking about Stitch 'n Pitch!
A couple of you ladies from CC were talking about coming to a home game, you have to bring yarn!! :D
Also, our home games are televised the Tuesday after on channel 19. We will be meeting at a bar to be named later to watch them! Maybe cc could join us for one of them ?!? Just an option.
I miss you guys ;(
I keep thinking I'm going to make it to a Saturday meeting, but it just hasn't worked out that way yet.
I'm not sure if you remeber my friend Suzie or not, but I finally remembered to give her the book that taught me how to read patterns! She has a flight to NY tomorrow morning, so that will give her some quiet time to get started.
I'm hoping that when I return to cc, after football season, she will become a regular member :)
Well, I have to get back to work now!

Guess what I'm knitting....
MY FIRST SOCK!!!
I did some work on giganto blinkie.
And I'm knitting some dish clothes :D
I love this yarn!
I miss my cc! :( I can't believe I'm not going to see you ladies until like OCTOBER!! ;(
My week is going to be soooo long! I have to work extra hours for the "dark"!
Football practice is going to be really tough also, our first game is a week from this Saturday!!
If you don't get to come out, it will be on TV the following Tuesday night! (cc, see if they will put it on at the bar for you!!)
Well, here are some pics of my cleats..

Wow, no more talk like that or I'll end up going home early.
Speaking of home, my internet is not working :( The cable guy is supposed to come out tomorrow morning between 8-10. That means if I get up at 7:30, so I can be ready for him, he'll show up at 9:59, but if I stay in bed, he'll ring the door bell (that doesn't work) and then leave! So I guess I will be getting up early, I just want it fixed. Besides, if I miss him, they won't come back till next Saturday cause there has to be someone home over 18 :( Otherwise, it would have been fixed yesterday!
Is everyone else ready for school to start? I'm going to go get the school supply shoping done this weekend!
Next week is a "dark" week here at work. There are no shows, so we get to do the big projects that would normally mean taking parts out of the show. That means over-time, which I don't really care for, but it only happens 3 times a year, so I'm not complaining.. yet, although I'm sure I will be next week. We are going to be starting at 6 instead of the normal 7 and we might have to work that Saturday also.. which would have been my last Saturday before the WPFL season starts :(
Speaking of football season. We have 2 weeks that are "bye" weeks between Aug.18th and Oct.20th. Luckily, they both land on weekends that I have other things to do! Our first bye week is Sept. 8th, I have a wedding to go to, and the other is Sept.22nd, which is the weekend of a big motorcycle party that was actually this first bike run that I ever went on back in 2002!
Well, I've gotta get some work done, hopefully my internet will be up and running this weekend so I can post some pics.. of something, I'm not sure what, but I haven't posted any pics in a while.
