Here is what I want to do:<br><br>
1) Play with my Kool-Aid and Cascade 220<br>
2) Cast on my Skirty (in Fruit Loops!!)<br>
3) Finish 8 zillion other knitting projects<br>
4) watch Tivo'd episodes of SVU<br>
5) figure out if you can knit in a bubble bath<br><br>
Here is what I <i>have</i> to do tonight:<br><br>
Go to a bar with my best friend and other friends, drink, dance, stay up til 3 am, and maybe kiss a Marine.<br><br>
Do I need to straighten out my priorities? Please tell me I am not already an old woman at 23 and you all would love to stay home and knit on a Friday night...<br><br>
~Devon<br><br>
P.S. I did consider bringing Knitting to the bar but it's too smoky

Well, if you're old at 23 'cause you want to stay home and knit on a Friday nite, then I'm ancient at 38, 'cause that's exactly what I've been doing tonite...knitting! :LOL<br><br>
I came home from work at 5:30 pm to find my DH and boys napping (DH works overnites 10pm 'til 6 am), so I figured....yay! I can get a shower without anybody bothering me (figuring boys would be up shortly as usual)...well, I got my shower, nobody up...so I come online and check all my knitting sites, email, etc...7 pm, still nobody up...so I start knitting my Booga bag and knitted 'til DH got up for work at 8 pm...still no boys up, figured they were down for the nite...well, lo and behold soon as DH pulls out of the driveway both boys are up...now it's 9:21 pm and I gotta get to bed soon, 'cause I gotta be at work at 6 am, but both boys are wide awake and watching cartoons...remind me to KILL my DH when he gets home from work tomorrow morning! :LOL<br><br>
Have fun with your friends tonite, and think of me at about midnite 'cause I'll probably still be up then. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

I'm always reminded of how "old" I am at 28 when I go to the gym and hear all the college girls talking about going out on the weekends..I get so excited on the weekend because DH is home and I can do lots more reading and knitting when he takes the kids outside, etc!! :LOL<br><br>
Nothing wrong with your priorities..My mom used to joke that I was an old woman in a young woman's body..And I like it that way!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

:LOL I would much rather stay home and knit. I actually spent last night doing just that! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/knit.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="knit"><br><br>
Did you have a good time anyways?

Last night dh watched Star Wars and I sat next to him knitting. And we are both 23. I would much rather sit at home in my pj's, eating Ben and Jerry's, and knit then go out!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who spends the weekends at home. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I never really got the point of *going out* even when I was younger.<br>
The whole bar/party/drinking thing never appealed to me.<br>
Sure, I liked socializing with friends, but there are other more appealing places to do it than in some seedy smokey atmosphere where guys are leering at ya hoping to score a quickie.

It was fun... I saw some college friends I hadn't seen in awhile and I did kiss the Marine <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> but I was thinking about Knitting the entire time!!!<br><br>
I think if I had a dh to hang out at home with, I would never go out... it's bad enough I spend nights in with my mom and sis, LOL, but on the other hand people keep telling me I should "take advantage of this time before I have kids" but all I want to do is have kids!<br><br>
I think once the summer comes and I am not so tired from teaching all the time I will be more motivated, and Knitting won't be competing with Going Out because I'll have time for both.<br><br>
Tonight is Kool Aid, Cascade, and Skirty Night though!!!<br><br>
