My Babies Are Back!!!!!!!!

I am so happy. All day I was anxious, and then they pulled up in the driveway. My girls are home with me again. I know they were only gone two weeks, but it seemed like much longer. The last few days were especially tough because I was a little bit manic and everything just seemed a lot worse than it actually was, (which was not at all). UGH!!!! But never mind all that...My babies are back, at least for two weeks, until they are off again to visit more relatives. Then it will be all three of them, but fortunately hubby will be taking time off and some friends from school will be coming to visit. In the interim, I'll be playing chauffeur, taking them to appointments, and playdates, but at least they will be here with me. Please don't think I am totally obsessed with my kids or overly involved in their lives, I'm not, at all. They were vacaying with someone whom I have a strained relationship with, thus making it difficult for me to relax when they are with said person. All in all I'm none the worse for the wear and have exhaled deeply and am grinning ever so cheesily.

***Odd little side note: My seven year old daughter likes to watch "Man vs Wild", but doesn't like "Alaska Experiment", (camping in Alaska for three months is not cool, but eating a zebra is?) Kids these days.

Knitterly wise: I'm in a bit of a funk. I'm a knitting polygamist, having more than one project going at a time, I need to be more monogamous so I can finish something. I have plenty of yarn, and I shouldn't start another project until I have finished one that is on the needles. Who will hold me accountable?
I'm working on (in no particular order) :

  1. SLHayes Zig Zag Scarf

  2. Lavender dishcloth

  3. Bella's Blanket (has a finish date of Christmas)

  4. Baby Sweater -lavender

  5. Mock Cable Sweater (been on the needles for -I'm embarrassed to say)

  6. Baby Sweater - pink

    Oh yes, I'm actually going to attempt to write a pattern (that would be the Zig Zag Scarf), so cross your fingers and say a prayer for me. (hmm that sounds like an oxymoron) At any rate, you know what I'm saying.

Notice my new widgets? I love them, and I see that people other than Heather actually come here. Yeah for me. I think its the widgets. You know the old adage, "if you build it they will come". I guess that's true for blogs to. Make the page pretty, add some content and people will navigate on over. Interesting theory. At any rate, I'm just happy that people are coming over.

But back to what really made my day Super, Ultra, Mega Platinum Bright ---My Babies Are Back

Be Safe.

They are all precious - I feel your anxiety. I am the same when my babies are away too.

Oh my gosh!! Is that the cutest picture or what?? No wonder you missed them.

OK, you asked for it...I'll hold you accountable if you want. ;) Sounds like you should work on the Zig Zag first?
