Tis the Season

For Alyssa to get drunk and make an ass out of herself. We had our first Christmas party last night and it was thrown by one of the real estate agents Carl works with. I swear I didn't have that much to drink but it hit me like a ton of bricks. All I know is I was very vocal, happy and dropsy. I think I spilled a drink down the front of me because I was trying to listen to someone and I forgot I was holding a drink. Oh I engaged some stranger is a discussion (read debate) about the merits of religon. I nearly dropped a cupcake on the floor but saved it. The caterors were nice enough to congratulate me on averting that disaster. Luckily, I didn't really know any of these people and Carl says I wasn't really that bad I just uninhibited. So I don't think you'll be shocked when I tell you I will not be drinking more than ONE (yes one) glass of wine at any of the other parties this holiday season. At least I was happy right?

Anyway, Carl left tonight for a trip to Vegas with the boys so I have the house to myself which is freakin fabulous. I just ordered in some dinner and I'm getting ready to watch the next episode of Summer Heights while I work on Dad's cardigan.  Have you been watching Summer Heights on HBO? Its so funny, check it out.

Tomorrow I'm getting up early to go home and dye some more rovings for the shop which should be fun. Then I have another Christmas party. Let's hope I can stick with the one drink thing so I don't make an ass out of myself there. Seriously, I'm never like this...I just don't understand what happened last night? I guess I have to stop thinking about this. 

I never showed you all the Baby Surprise Jacket! I still have to weave in the ends and seam up the one for Violetta but the one for Tommy is completed and has been sent off to Argentina. I even got a chance to size it up on baby before it went out and I think it will fit.

It took me forever to find little soccer ball buttons but I'm so glad I did because its PERFECT!

Ok I'm off to work on Dad's GIANT cardigan. Have a great weekend and wish me luck with whole not making an ass out of myself thing!

Hmmm...only ONE drink at any other parties...yeah, we'll see how that goes on Wednesday night! :o)

Although I find it strange that I tell myself - "if you don't drink too much at the party you can probably still find time to knit on the ride home to Jersey" - you know, cause drinking and knitting makes PERFECT sense :o)

How's that warping board working out for you?
