My last FO of the year slid in under the wire at 10:50ish last night.
As we speak, the boy is downstairs, in the loving arms of Grandma. This is a beautiful thing for mama, who relished her first shower completely alone in weeks. Grandma is no doubt feeding said infant cheese sandwiches on wheat bread* but I assure you at this glorious towel-wrapped moment I do not care.
I took a much needed break on Saturday from paper writing to meet Jessalu at a Starbucks halfway between the two of us. I've spent months trying to learn chain plying, but without actual three dimensional instructions I was lost.
I am about three days out from being done with this semester. I cannot express the joy I feel right now, coming off of a day with visits to two libraries in different parts of the state, in the snow, with a very grabby nearly-six month old. I have to finish this paper, make a few comments and I am done. Donedonedone. At least until January when I get to start this all over again.
The end of the semester is here, and I am scrambling to get assignments in. At this point, turning them in on time is a major accomplishment, and it sadly is one I'm not always achieving. (Julie was right in a big way about that organization thing.) The knitting isn't getting done so much, except random rows here and there. I have a hat for my sister's newborn that's giving me grief in the decreases (somehow I thought I could go without a pattern for a plain hat. Seems I was mistaken on that), I have a wee knitted animal that just needs stuffing, and I have my standard parade of UFOs that are requesting attention. Oh, and the nearly a dozen emails I'm behind on answering. Can't forget those.
Em and I just got back from a week in Texas. My intent had been to post on one of my down days there, but there was a problem. My "remember me" cookie for my password expired...and I couldn't remember what the password was! I spent several days trying every possible combination with no luck. Then, we get home well after 1 am yesterday and I tried again, half asleep. It worked. D'oh!
