Out of Town

Stashalongers: there will not be a post this Tuesday and you have my deepest apologies for that. My Grandfather passed away this morning and I need to get to NY. Everything should be back to normal for our Week 13 of 13 post on the 28th :) I know a few of you have jumped off the wagon and I'll have all that in my post next time.

Thanks again for all your prayers and well wishes--he passed peacefully in his sleep and I think that's the best way to go.

If there is a lighter side to this, my husband will be alone with my kiddos for more than 12 hours for the first time. You have no idea how badly I want to hide cameras around the house to see what goes on.

Happy knitting everyone--no jumping off the wagon while I'm gone!

Stacey and Cynthia--my gushing post about your very generous and much appreciated gifts will be up before I go--hopefully! If not then it will be up as soon as I get back :)

My deepest sympathy, Kim. No apologies are needed!!

Oh, man, I hope you don't come home to a house gone feral...

my thoughts are with you and yours during this sad time... and happy that his end was relatively quick and hopefully painless. May your husband forever grovel at your feet in appreciation as he realizes how tough it is to keep up with little Diva and Little Rage!!!

My thoughts are with you and your family. Have safe travels Kim! I do have to say, it will be interesting to see how your husband handles being alone with the kiddos for an extended time. I'm thinking that he will have a much better appreciation for motherhood when you return:)

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandfather. I'm glad, though, that he didn't linger indefinitely, and that the end was peaceful. Hugs to you and your family.

P.S. I'd love to see those videos of your DH alone with the kids! LOL

My thoughts are with you. My husband was with my girls for 5 full days while I was in Seattle for my Grandma's memorial service. They did fine! Safe travels...
