Always helping she is.  Never fear when she is around, there will always be extra hands to help.

We put up our Yule decorations, both outside and inside.  My mother came over, and like she does at everything I do, turned her nose up at them.  My outside decorations where not “enough” for her.  I just did my porch because both the sproglette and I have been sick.  Husband wasn’t a help with the lights and I was not about to get on the roof myself and put them up.  I know that she would have and she would have come over to help me, but it’s my house, my family.  Let me do it how I feel is right.  I think my porch looks cute.  I don’t want to run long green extension cords all over my yard so that my car can drive over them and possibly hurt the car or the cable.

I love my mother, I really do and she does a lot for me, but nothing I do is EVER good enough for her.  My house isn’t clean enough, my kid isn’t learning enough stuff from me, I am not skinny enough.  Oh the list goes on and on.  I try not to let it bother me.  Haha.

Anyways, back to the holidays.  M’s doll is still in a state of limblessness.  Hahahhaa, whatever that means.  I still have to put her arms on and do her hair.  I will do that later.  I need to work myself up to her hair.  I have wasted a bit of the yarn on it and I don’t want to waste anymore.  So right now I am knitting her a dress out of kool aid dyed malabrigo worsted.   Yeah, the doll gets malabrigo.  I have a cardigan knitted, this dress and a cape.  I need to do some pants, some socks and a hat.  Possibly a coat.  I better get cracking.
