The ramblings of a fiber-affected single mother of twins who makes a living as a code monkey

One Crazy Fiber Lady

Monday Again

Well another week has begun. ¬†My birthday last week was very nice. ¬†I thank you all for your birthday wishes. ¬†I had a lovely lunch with Kim and¬†Deborah at a nearby Thai place. ¬†Thank you ladies! ¬†Mom made my favorite meal for dinner. ¬†The kids made birthday cards for me at school. ¬†Awwww. ¬†The folks took advantage of my Amazon Wishlist and bought me a new lens for my big girl camera. ¬†All in all, an excellent birthday. ¬†Much better than the ones with a bad ankle or coxsackie virus 😉

I even made some knitting progress:

I started the center of the sleeve stripes this morning on the train.  I would have been further along, but I spent the weekend without touching the needles once.  Or a wheel.  Or even spindles.  I know, totally amazing.  What did I do?  Well..

I took the twins to a dude ranch in Northeast PA to spend the weekend with the SMC (Single Mothers by Choice)¬†Multiple-Mom’s second annual get together. ¬†There were 10 of us mommies, each with twins or better. ¬†Two of the 10 have an additional singleton and one mommy has triplets. ¬†Doing the math, that was 10 mommies, 2 helpers, 9 sets of twins, 1 set of triplets and 2 siblings = 12 adults, 23 children.

Wow. ¬†It was fun! ¬†The bulk of the kids were about the same age, within a year of my kids, give or take. ¬†They travelled in little packs, enjoying the freedom the contained grounds offered. ¬†There was always at least one mommy with the particular pack so they weren’t totally free. And the mommies enjoyed the time together, being with others who totally get it.

Here are some pictures from the weekend:

    That DOES sound fun! Glad to hear you got past the birthday without injury this year!

    I really, really like the jacket, and I look forward to seeing modeled pictures when it’s done. That’s the kind of thing that looks just as nice with jeans as it does with something more upscale.

    And of course your kids are just adorable.

    So I’m a little late to the game in commenting on this one but first you are very welcome for teh birthday lunch. It sounded like you had a good one with the family. Gotta love it when amazon wishlists are utilized. Ballerina is looking good. Looks like the dude ranch was pretty cool.
