So, on the subject of wool...

I ordered some wool that I had been drooling over for quite a while...  It was Cestari wool and just about the most perfect colorway that there ever was.  I waited for months to order it because I wasn't sure if I could justify paying THAT MUCH for wool...  Finally, I just bit the bullet and put the order in.  I waited.  My husband had mentioned that it wasn't showing up on the bank statement online so I wrote the wool place and asked when my order would be shipped.  They said no later than Thursday.  OK, so on Thursday I checked my invoice status...  Processing, it said.  Great.  I checked Friday...Processing.  Not great.  So, it's now Tuesday, almost 2 weeks after I ordered it and it still says processing.  I wrote on Saturday asking them to cancel my order.  I had to.  The card I used was my debit card and my awesome (I truly mean that) husband lost it and so I had to cancel it and get a new one.  Even if they do pull their heads out of their butts, they still won't be able to run my card.  They haven't answered my email asking them to cancel anyhow.  It sort of seems like they're idiots who just happen to sell really beautiful wool.  I'm sad. 

Anyway, we're actually doing school right now.  One of them is doing language arts while the other does math.  E is 6 and she's learning about the have family contractions and silent consonants.  M is 8 and is just reviewing.  I'm tired and pretty run down today.  The baby thinks it's his job to get into everything and I'm so tired of chasing him around.  If he's not into things he shouldn't be, then he's picking little balls of wool from  his shorties and eating them.  I do my best to fish them out but it's an all-day job.

The sad thing?  I've needed to pee for the last 4 hours but haven't had a minute to go.  Even as I write this, I'm doing other things...  I guess I'm not THAT bad at multitasking.  lol
