I just want one peaceful night

The last couple days, I have good intentions of a happy, chatty blogpost. But by the time I get on the computer, the evening has gone downhill and I just can't be bothered.

DD seems to be reaching the end of her patience with Daddy's absence - another endless bedtime ending in tears. Need to go shopping, but when? Such a pain to go after work, pushes dinner too late, risk of preschool breakdown. Will do it tomorrow; we'll go out to dinner, then the grocery store. If I'm smart I'll write a list.

Then today, a letter from my credit card - they are raising my rate from 9.9% to 17.9%. Ummm, why? "Due to extraordinary changes in the economic environment, we're reviewing our existing credit card accounts" (makes sense. Dump the bad customers. Okay, I'm with you.) "Having considered these economic conditions, your account's current purchase rate (9.9%), and the length of time you have had this rate and account (over 10 years, if I remember correctly), we will be increasing [all your rates]" Huh? I've never had a late payment, and pay in full always. Maybe once a year, I let a couple hundred slide over to the next month, then pay it all in full, plus extra so I don't have rolling finance fees. So the best I can figure is I'm not creating enough revenue for them, so they better raise my rates. Or maybe I'll just cancel your card, idiots.

What a hassle.

Breathe in breathe out. Think calming thoughts. Fiber

With the spinning I was doing this week, I had a flash of insight. Ravelry! I could use advanced search to find out what other people do small amounts of handspun. I knew I had ~230 yds of the Watercolors merino I spun up in 2007, enough for a nice scarf. Search scarf, handspun.....voila! Morning Surf scarf by Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer. Perfect!
