Sleep might not be the answer

I made sure I got 8 hours of sleep last night but I woke up just as tired and dragging as I usually do. So I don't know what the answer is except to just stop fighting it and do what I can when I can do it.

I ordered my sock yarn last night and got to the checkout and found out that Lion Brand has free shipping over $35 for the month of October.  And as my order was well over that amount...  I ended up getting Wool Ease after all because the wool yarn just cost too much.  I know in the long run it would be a better investment but you have to have the money to invest in the long run and I didn't.  But as these socks will last us a couple of winters, it will be okay.  Maybe next time.

I haven't started on Bowser yet.  I don't have all the yarn and I'm too distracted to figure out the pattern right now.  Hopefully I'll be able to soon.  In the meantime, I'm working on sweaters...mine and Zach's.  I only knit a couple of rows on mine because I got sleepy, so I put it all up and fell asleep.  But I woke up when Tom got home so it was around 4 a.m. before I got back to sleep.

I had a book in at the library so I went ahead and picked it up today but I was so proud of myself for not eating out.  I did pick up some hamburger and am making burgers and fries tonight.  Much cheaper.  Then I'm making up the bed and heading there.  I've been so sleepy all day today but I know as soon as I stretch out on the bed, my eyes will pop open and I'll be wide awake.

Well, supper is nearly ready so I'm off to finish it up.

I picked up some sock yarn at Joanne's yesterday, on sale. Mine is for a linen stitch scarf. Maybe I should wander on over to Lion Brand's site and see what there is to see. Free shipping is not to be ignored!

I wish we had a Joanne's around here but at least our Walmart still carries several brands of acrylic, which is affordable.

Still, free shipping makes up for having to buy online!

Believe it or not, I got the package today! Not only free shipping, I got it priority mail.
