Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering Gods grace in its various forms.

1 Peter 4:9-10

Sunday, March 9, 2008


It was the A, B, C show the other night at work. You remember my referring to the situation of A and B? Well, it started when A came in and wanted to go right back home. The arguments escalated from there. All night long it was back and forth, from front counter to back storage, in and around grill. It was long, loud, rude and completely disruptive. Throw in C, who is B's best friend and also a good friend of A's and you have a trio of total chaos. To make matters worse the Assist Manager was on that night and you would have thought she'd put a stop to it. As amusing as it was, it lasted way too long and sustained at a volume you wouldn't have thought possible. All we could do was duck and cover. Fortunately there were three of us manning the front counter and drive through so we managed to stay efficient and there was one other young guy doing grill who was pretty competent. Wow is all I can really manage to say at this point.

Friday night was much better. And much busier! The time just flew off the clock. When I got home I went right to bed and crashed hard. I had to be up early Saturday morning to take care of LD while hubby took Dad to the bus station. He was going to Logan to fly down to Atlanta to visit my sister in college. Hubby then went to visit his dad at the hospital only to find out he was discharged. So he went looking for him at the nursing home - all dad's stuff was still covered. So he went to visit his mother at her work to find out what was going on and WHY we weren't told about it. Come to find out, my FIL has to spend 2 weeks at a rehab center in Portland before he can be readmitted to his home at the nursing center. She had no excuse for not letting us know this information.

Saturday night was not as chaotic (all the players were at the game again) and it wasn't as busy. We all managed to have a lot of fun and the major players managed to keep the volume at a much lower level. Now that C has become a major player we find out that C is getting back together with, let's say D, and A has a serious problem with it. Not that A is jealous, but that D had previously cheated on C and A has risen to the defense. While I admit it's nice to have friends stick up for you, if you're going to resume a relationship with someone who's stepped out on you in the past then it's ultimately your problem. This was part of the major issue last night. C wants to tell A but can't because A will take it out on D and C wants to protect D from A's abuse. Whew! (There may not be enough letters of the alphabet to cover this mess!) In another story, B is jealous that A may be interested in someone else. In addition to this mess, I suspect that C also likes A but is getting back with D because A is unavailable. Double whew! Well, enough about that.

On to more positive and less chaotic events! I've started the sweater for our niece. It's really really chunky! I can't believe how quickly it's knitting up. I can only fit in a couple of hours a day so it's really nice to see that the body is done and I'm almost done one arm already. I have the other arm and the hood part of the hoodie to complete. I think she's really going to like it. She's such a tiny little thing it ought to show off her slim waistline. I think before I go on to knitting my tote bag I'm going to do another dishcloth. I need a small project before I tackle something else. I also want to get a needle felting kit so I can needle felt an appliqué onto the tote. I think I can get them fairly inexpensively online along with a small bit of carded wool. It should be interesting to explore!

Hubby is working all day today - a real bummer but he is getting paid overtime for the whole day. We really need the money so I've had to suck it up. Poor LD and I have stayed home the whole day bored out of our skulls. Beatrice is still laid up until we can save enough money to fix her.

On the good news front...we'll be doing some more remodeling upstairs. Hopefully we can get it done while Dad's gone. We've been staying in adjoining rooms downstairs and LD can see our entire bedroom from his room. Can you say no privacy??? We decided he needs his own private room and so do we. So we're all moving upstairs to the two vacant bedrooms. We're moving my sister down to our old bedroom and LD's room which will be adjoining hers will be the office. It's opening up so much storage for all of us. Dad won't have to do a thing. His room will be untouched. It'll be nice to get upstairs and make the most of the storage space and most importantly to have our own bedroom again. It's been 14 months since hubby and I have been able to have conversations (among other things) in our bed. It's about time!!!

Ok, I need to get LD's supper ready. He's been very good during this whole posting! BTW, I've printed off pictures of all our family and I'm going to make a collage for LD's room. That way he'll recognize his family when he sees them - considering some of us live a ways away from each other!

Happy Knitting!
