[:00] LMAO...who am I kidding...SURE I DO! Well ok...not all day...but I work from home so it's easy for me to pop in and see what's going on. For those concerned that I'm stealing time from my employer...I'm salaried...which means I get paid for getting my job done NOT the individual hour of work. I work MANY weekends and evenings (without extra pay...again..SALARIED) so I don't even have a twinge of guilt about popping in for 10 minutes during my day to see what's going on.

It's funny...when I'm on the road traveling I have to "restrict" my pop-ins to the lunch hour. Sometimes it's stressful and I sneak away with my laptop....need that 10 minutes! I've also written down "www.knittersreview.com" on about 10 pieces of scrap paper for knitters I've encountered in my travel.

Knitting is therapy...but so is this forum. When I'm REALLY stressed out from work....I pop in...see what's going on and almost ALWAYS feel better when I shut the window.

I've only been knitting since May of this year.....WHO KNEW???

P.S. Thank you Clara

Check the chickens....I'm beginning to wonder if they don't have a little "wood stove voodoo doll" thing going on! [:00]...

Just for the fun of it of course...I picture the conversation going something like this:
Moe to Larry: "Did you see that? she just got the fire going.....want to see something funny {blows wind (I know through a beak not possible...but it's my vision..) on said "wood fire vodoo doll" and out goes Vi's fireplace.}

Larry to Moe: "Hey that's cool...that'll teach her to put us in the basement...let me try...no wait...here she comes....quick...hide the doll...act normal!"

LOL...That's how it goes in my mind anyway.

[:00][:00] I DO SPEND ALL DAY HERE and I WORK IN AN OFFICE... lol. but I too am salaried, and work too much as it is. But my BF works in the same office and I often find myself clicking off the window, not because I think my boss is rounding the corner, but because I think dear BF is and he's going to "catch me in the act" again. It's bad enough I sit on here all night, but if he knew (and he does since he's reading over my shoulder right now) I was here all day too, I would never live it down.

by the way, he thinks it's a total freaking hoot we call our yarn "stash"
