That's not a bad idea, frankierevolver.  Round 2 tax return is coming. I could stimulate the economy with a drum carder purchase.  Hmm..

That's what I'm doing!!  Since my credit card is all paid off as of last month (YAY!!), I am being irresponsible and (barring dire emergency) buying a drum carder at Estes Park Wool Market next month.  WHOOP!

everything looks great for me, my partner is awesome!
  No no no, my dear!  MY partner is awesome!   Cheesy

I love saying "stimulate the economy" - ha ha ha. If we weren't planning on moving I would stimulate the economy by buying a Wii!
But!! Having a drum carder is really .. really.. nice. Hand carders are no fun in comparison. I don't use it as often as I "could" I suppose but I use it as often as I like which is even better! Besides, it also qualified as a business expense! Cheesy

Hey, I've got a Wii!! It's too bad we don't live closer and I could swap you for a couple of hours. Smiley

Seriously - and especially if you have Mario kart!!!
I wish I knew anyone around here that spun and then I would have convinced them to go in halves with me on the drum carder or something - I'd do fine with having custody only half of the time!  (I probably use it under 6 hours a week.)

I just worry that if I get one, I won't use it as much as I could.
I find that once you have one, you use it. Even if it's odd and random throw things in the carder just to make you happy.

Dang, I almost forgot the wool market was coming up. Nicolasa, wanna run with me/wrangle kids?  Grin

Heck, yes!  Let's do it!  As you might guess, I think your kids are freakin' awesome.  I mean, Nanu gave me a high five and a bump the last time I was over, I do believe.   Cheesy

The only children I have at the house are 14 & 15.  After spending the last 21 years being totally dedicated to my children (3 out of the house), I finally have time to accomplish things I like to do, and they don't mind.
