Random... Monday?

I can't seem to get my act together for a Random Friday, so you get Random Monday.

We leave for Hawaii on SATURDAY!  We have so much left to do before then! Would-be thieves should know that my mama is flying in from Alabama (on Friday) to stay at my house with my children, so the house will not be left unattended!  Speaking of which, my mama is flying in on Friday to stay with my children! My house is a wreck. Seriously. Because she is my mom, my house will be spotless upon our return, no matter how grody I leave it for her, but I'd really like to find the time to make it presentable.

Did I mention we leave for HAWAII on Saturday? The high here today is 6. We have snow on the ground.

Last chance to give me good recommendations for things to do in Kauai!

Does anyone knit? I'm trying to find a nice lovely "bulky weight" yarn for a project. I do not want any type of homespun. The only thing I can find locally is a Lion Brand acrylic, which I do not want.  I would prefer something machine washable, if possible. Since I am not able to go feel up the yarn that I will hopefully be buying, does anyone have any suggestions? This is one option I have found.

My main laptop has died, taking with it all of my pictures. I am not too worried as I think it is likely a power supply issue. One side effect of this is that I don't do a lot of blogging from home any more, as the netbook requires a lot of scrolling and I am lazy.

I will likely be taking a little blog break until we return from Hawaii. I am part of a book blog tour tomorrow, so that will go up, but otherwise I'll see you all in a couple of weeks. I may post a couple pictures from Hawaii, since we taking a laptop, but I might not.  Have a great week!

  1. LOL! My Mom is the same as yours :) In fact, when I came home from the hospital my laundry was done and of course the house was spotless. You've gotta love Moms!! Have a wonderful vacation!

  2. Wow, that got here fast! I hope you have a fantastic time in Hawaii and think about us poor slobs left behind!

  3. Oh, please share soome photos of Hawaii with us...we are so cold here!!! Moms are good!

  4. Oh, I am so jealous! Have fun!

  5. Have a fun and safe trip. Please do post pictures when you can.

    Your mom and the boys will probably have a grand time together. I do hope it warms up just a little for her, tho.

    This mom loves to clean my children's houses. I just hate to clean my own. LOL

  6. Yippeee! Have a lovely time in Hawaii!

  7. I hope you have a wonderful time! I haven't chatted with you in so long. The days are flying by but things are starting to slow down for me.

    I can't wait to hear all about your trip. You are going to have such a blast!

  8. Oh, it sounds so wonderful! Have a marvelous time, and enjoy the sunshine! And the ocean! And the relaxation!

  9. Have a fantabulous trip, and I can't wait to read about it when you return!

  10. Oh wait a second!! Hold the horses!!!
    The last time you mentioned you were going to Hawaii... I didn't realize you and Mike were going without the boys!!?!?! Now I'm REALLY jealous. My husband and I haven't gone anywhere overnight without our kids in .... how old is my oldest? 14 nearly 15 ... years!!!

    With that in mind... I don't think I have to suggest to you what you should be doing while in Kauai now, do I? ;))

    All right... you can do that the entire time ... so if I were in your shoes, I would without a doubt look up some state or national parks in the region and go hiking or kayaking and explore! : )

    Have a fantabulous vacation, Lisa!!!!!

  11. Oh ha ha! That should have read, "You can't* do that the entire time... " LOL!

    Freudian slip. ;p

  12. I want you to have a great time in Hawaii and next time get Carbonite. It backs up your computer offline.

  13. So jealous of your trip! I hope you had a great flight today & enjoy the deliciously warm weather. :)

  14. Color me jealous that you are in Hawaii right now. ::sigh:: Oh, and my mom cleans like a demon too. Makes me feel badly about what the house looks like when I hand it off to her (and I generally think it looks decent when she's coming to visit).
