Not to knitting! To the pacifier! We have finally gotten rid of it and I'm excited. There are moments (like 6 a.m. when she's talking up a storm while H is still asleep) that it's still tempting to give it to her, but it's been a week and she's only had it a couple of times for a few minutes each time. She's not looking for them anymore (and I think that I've found all of them.) I'm hoping that this will help us get more sleep. She has never been a good sleeper (short naps, frequent wakings) like her brother. And what does this have to do with knitting? Well, I can't get much done when I'm exhausted all the time. Things are getting better, but I've yet to have a really good night sleep.
I'm about half way done with Doug's fingerless mitt. I haven't done much with the Wine and Roses mitt in the last few days, so there's not much to show. I got the new Spring Rowan mag. It does have some great patterns, but all that will wait.
Well, I'm off to get my swim suit on and take H and his friend S to the pool for a bit. Mom is coming to have a playdate with L. Knitting is better on days that S is here. She and H play so well together that I can sit and watch them while I knit (and L is captivated by them both!)
Also, my in-laws are coming to babysit on Friday! Doug's band is playing on Friday and I'm actually going out with adults! No children! Who knows, I might live on the edge and even have a beer. I think I deserve it since my birthday is Sunday (and I'm hoping that there might be some yarn involved in the presents!) I guess I'm now officially in my late 30's instead of mid 30's. I still feel 20ish though.
