First week down!
I survived the first week back at school. Actually it is a lot of fun, but a lot of work getting back into the swing of things. I forgot how much I get interrupted during any given day. When I sit down to work on something, I get a call or someone walks in with an immediate need. Which is fine, but I can't guarantee I ever get back to what I walked away from! A little frustrating, but it all keeps me on my toes. I love the first week and seeing how excited the kids are to be back at school. Of course for some it doesn't last long, just until the homework starts. But I do love it! One little boy heading on the bus Friday afternoon shouted too me... I really don't want to go home. I want to stay here forever!. I told him we'll love having him back on Monday. He just loves learning and seeing all the fun things in first grade. So fun!
In a week lots has happened at our house. I walked in on Wednesday to my husband on the floor installing a new computer. Our old one seemed to have died, but I'm not so sure! All it really needed was a new video card, but we have a smashing new computer along with the old one (still on the floor) in the kitchen! He spent a day or so moving over the old files to the new computer, but this one doesn't have a floppy drive. Which wouldn't really be a problem, but my camera has a floppy drive and no way to hook it directly up to the computer. So at the moment I have no way of adding pictures to my picture host or putting them on my blog. Luckily I took one and saved it before this happened so I can at least show you one progress pic.
Now this was my ILG sox from Tuesday. Since then, with no computer at home and no time at school, I actually finished these socks last night. They fit great and I love the grey tweed. I haven't gotten much done on the X-mas socks. Just the cuff on the second sock. I have knitting group next Wednesday so I thought they would be perfect to bring with me to work on. Today I hope to sew up the ribbon t-shirt so I can get it wrapped for Gracie's b-day on Friday! Then I have to pick another project to cast on. Maybe another baby sweater. There are three boys arriving in the next few months and I only have one blue sweater made. Or I could cast on for Gracie's x-mas sweater. I think it is a hooded pullover. We shall see.
