Before the confetti stopped falling on Times Square (and an hour before Alabama New Year), I finished the last six squares of my goal of 52 for 2007.
I can’t be bothered to straighten them out.
I’m actually halfway through the Overall Total of CounterPain Squares with 70 more to go. Then there is the edging of course…I figure there is at least three more years to this project. My attention has now shifted to my next knitting dilemma: Is it possible to knit three quarters of a pair of socks in just four days? I guess we’ll find out on Friday.
Since the New Year is only an hour away (15 minutes by the time I click the “publish” button), it’s time to total the final points in my War on Christmas. I get a point for a successful Christmas Dinner the Third (the one that was my responsibility). Christmas gets a point because there were four Christmas Dinners to begin with. Seriously, I thought this holiday would never end – and I can’t tell if Great Gran is kidding when she says we’re going to have another Christmas Dinner when Uncle Bruce and Aunt Patti get back in town (they missed the other four). I also get a point for finding the Perfect Christmas Gift for Great Gran (and then coercing Mom, Dad, my Darling Sister and her Honey into helping with it). The Jitterbug is made of awesome. If I had designed a cell phone just for Great Gran, it wouldn’t be nearly as brilliant as this one. I don’t say that very often. The best part is that she loves it. She has called everyone – including me from the next room.
The final point tally:
William Henry – 2 Emily – 10 Christmas – 8
Do you know what that means? I won Christmas! I can’t even believe it. I knew 2007 would be a good year. I’ll let you know how 2008 goes – a lot depends on my ability to knit three quarters of a pair of socks by Friday.
Happy New Year!
