Almost Done

I'm almost done with my Rusted Root. Just need to finish the neckline. It seems like it's gonna be a little short, but I might be able to block it longer. Pics tomorrow...

I pretty much have nothing.

Day two. Yay for me, kind of boring for you (hey that rhymes). I could show you another pic of my monkey sock, but it would look just like the pic I showed you guys yesterday.

DHs cousin just got home from Iraq, so he went to spend the weekend with his family. Unfortunately this meant I had to take him to the airport @ 4.30 am with kids in tow. This also meant that since they catch the bus @ 6.45am there was no going back to bed when we got home. This resulted in exhaustion-induced shitfits this evening. The 8 yo had a shitfit because I wouldn't help him (read:do) his homework. The 6 year old had one because the 8yo wouldn't let him play with his PSP. And the 2yo? Well shitfits are his thing but he totally lost it when I told him I didn't want to watch The Muppet Show.

The ultimate shitfit was when I put everyone to bed a half hour early and poured myself a glass of Bailey's :)

I should go read about the muscular system but I'm thinking I might cast on for something new, because you know I don't have enough UFOs laying around. Thanks to Ravelry there is all kinds of new stuff I want to knit; stuff that I didn't pay any attention to until I saw FOs from actual folks.

See y'all tomorrow!

27 days...right?

I read somewhere that it takes 27 days of doing something to establish it as habit. Well my plan is to post (something) everyday for the next 27 days and hopefully get posting to become part of my routine. Because let me tell you folks, my routine has seriously changed!

I quit my job and I'm in nursing school now. It's an evening program (so that I can be with the kids during the day) and it's supposed to be geared toward the working adult. However, there is more reading required than is humanly possible. I like it though, and I'm in class M-Th.

School has started for the boys...YAY!

So now Isaiah has to make due with Phoebe...

And boy have they been busy! Isaiah somehow managed to get tangled up in my sock-in-progress. Phoebe, apparently sensing Isaiah needed rescuing, made it her business to chew through the yarn to free her partner in crime. Thank goodness it was only one spot and the yarn isn't all tangled!

The yarn is Tess Designer Supersock that I got at MDS&W. I like how it's coming out.

Oh, yeah...I'm on Ravelry too (busymamaof3). Boy can you lose a few hours poking around there, huh?

Ok, well it's time to start getting my stuff together for class and maybe try and do something with my hair :)
