much happier now...

Sorry, my last post was a huge downer. Things were happening that weren't all that great, but I had a nice weekend, so all is better now. The party was great. Everyone enjoyed themselves, the food was okay, and the people were marvelous. My MIL had a great time, and really, that's what it's all about. My SIL, the "K" was an annoying idiot, but that was what we expected, so by ignoring her and most of her demands, we ended up having a good day.

I have to say, the cupcakes were a huge hit with everyone, but especially my MIL, so that was cool.
The theme for us was really, "go with the flow", so we did. It also helped that once it was over, we went out for dinner with some friends that were there, and avoided the whole family debrief. (My husband and his brother had no interest in sitting around with their sisters, going over the party in excruciating detail. I was happy to comply.)

So that's done. The next big focus for the family is Christmas, and I always look forward to it. Regardless of what I wrote last time, I do adore Christmas. Weird gifts aside, spending the day with family is always good. And since it's at our house this year, it will be even better.

Now, I just have to make sure I get all the Christmas knitting done.

The Fame Trend socks are slowly (very slowly!) getting there, and the blue cotton ones are doing the same. I really want to get the Christmas knitting done, because I have plans for more "ME" knitting in the New Year, and I want to get at it!

Your last post helped. It explains some things that I didn't understand before about the differences in families I have dealt with in the last few years. Explains a lot actually.

May your Christmas knitting proceed with all the speed and giftiness you require. love the way the Fame yarn is turning out.

Glad you had a wonderful time. Even happier MIL liked the cupcakes.

I think I have the same colorway of Fame Trend. Can't wait to see the finished thing.

I'm so glad you had a good time. And especially that MIL did too.
The table looks lovely - lots of cupcakes.

Psarty debrief???? If you can debrief after the party, you weren't imbibing enough! Just a thought.....
