The boys and I are heading out this morning to Stitches East in Baltimore. We were actually going to leave at 8:00 a.m., but I haven’t been sleeping well. Last night we let the boys stay up late to watch a movie, I got to bed around 12:30 a.m., woke up at 4:45 a.m. to test Corey, he was low so I had to wake him up and give him a snack, then I went back to bed and couldn’t fall asleep till about 5:30 a.m. Through the monitor I heard the boys’ alarm clock go off at 6:00 a.m., then DH’s alarm went off at 6:30 a.m. and they were both buzzing in my ear until I nudged DH. Then DH woke me up at 7:00 because he knew I wanted to leave early… then he woke me up before he got ready for work at 7:30, then he woke me up at 7:45 again to say goodbye. He was letting me stay in bed and sleep, but if I really needed that last hour of sleep, there was no way I could get it with all the interruptions… lol
Anyhow, Baltimore is only two hours from here, and it’s not like we’re on a schedule. We’re going to be walking around the market, and the first place I’m going is the Malabrigo booth. I can’t wait to see the color selection in person, because none of the yarn shops around here carry it, plus I have a whole list of other booths I want to visit for potential swap gifts. Yesterday, DH said I better not be trying to bring home an alpaca… but we’ll just have to see about that… 😉
It’s going to be a very full day — tonight we’re going to be in Ridgely, Maryland (where’s that, you ask?), to meet some friends from Virginia. Covenant is playing at The Fish Locker at 8:00 p.m., and I can’t wait to see them!
