Pay it Forward

Here we go!

Diwriter set up a pay it forward contest and picked me! YIPPEE! That girl has got some fierce knitting skillz. One would think, that after many years of friendship and my total failure to understand how you can actually use two pointy sticks and a piece of string to make something pretty, she'd have made something for me (even, if only, so she could stick her tongue out at me and my lack of skillz)...but alas and alack, nothing. Now she has to make me something (sticking my tongue out at Diwriter). I'll probably get a doodle on a used napkin after teasing her this way!

I'm not totally without my own skillz, I can crochet, I can do laundry, I can maintain a modicum of sanity with a houseful of teenagers (or at the very least a facade of sanity) .

So with that said...I don't know if you're gonna get, something home made? freshly laundered? maybe I'll just send you a kid. Tell me your skillz, I wanna know what else is out there to do besides laundry! First 3 win!

Is it cheating if I post???

Does that make it easier on you?

And if you send a kid, do I get to pick which one?

totally not cheating! rules are rules! although I have a care package almost ready for SPUD, maybe I'll even tuck in a clean pair of socks for you ;)

Oh wow, I just came here from Swistle and I can see my future! I have four kids from 3 months-7 years right now and omg a decade from now they will all be big and teenager-ish! As for skillz, Im hopeless. Just this morning I took out some laundry from the dryer only to find that I somehow managed to shrink (and kinda burn) the cover for the baby's bouncy chair. The best I can do is manage to get all four dressed, fed, cleaned, out the door and buckled into their car seats in about 45 minutes. Thats gotta count for something, right?

Hey there. Followed the link from Swistle. I don't have any kids - well, not two-legged ones, anyway. I've got two dogs. So I sweep up dog hair a lot. And I sew a bit. :)
