Lots of news

but none of it's all that exciting. Well, to other people anyway!

M has had a busy week. He sang at Good Shepherd (and did very well), he has tried out for a solo at school (?!?), and he made the academic team. He's pretty stoked!

L has also had a busy week. However, he is not exactly the teacher's favorite. He's more like the badly behaved little boy that it's really really hard not to laugh at when he's naughty. Eventually though, it begins to slowly drive you crazy.

B's been busy with his crazy schedule, although I think mine is probably even weirder. But he took his two days off and shampooed all of the carpet in our house. I am really amazed and pleased that he did that. Our house looks so much better! The carpets still look pretty good, despite dogs and boys!

I've been sick. I finally got tired enough of my constant headache and went in for antibiotics. I'm already finished with them, and the headache is still going strong. Lovely. Today I went for a physical (it's been awhile) and I wound up with two more doctors appointments and a CT scan. (Can you say third sinus surgery? I thought that you could!) Hopefully all the blood work I have had done will be fine.

To the right is a pair of baby sock I knit from left over yarn. I have lots of little bits of yarn that is too much to throw away, but not enough for a pair of socks for someone bigger. Why I decided that I should knit baby socks, I'll never know. I'm not going to have any more babies (no--definitely not!) and I don't know what to do with them. Any ideas? Maybe Ronald McDonald House? Would they need or want them? All of the yarn is superwash wool, so they are machine washable.

I've also started a baby kimono sweater from Mason Dixon Knits. My very lovely spooky secret pal sent the book to me. I hadn't meant to start a new project yet, but there's a baby shower at church on Sunday for 2 different couples and I'd already knit one couple a sweater. This fit the bill just perfectly. There aren't any pictures yet, but there will be soon. I started it yesterday, and I'm already 2/3 finished. It shouldn't be a problem to finish by Sunday. Even with lots of notebook grading.

Kate, you have beautiful boys. You must be so proud of them.

And the calabrese meatloaf is inspired (and a little gross in a really brilliant way)!

I still think your life is more exciting than mine. It helps to have children. Not that I'm in a rush...yet. I'll have to put that ring on someone's finger first.

Congrats to M! I hope he has as much fun with the academic team as I did.

Also, I love your new kitty--ghee is really cute. He (she?) keeps roaring and pouncing on my mouse, though. :-)

I really do have great boys--it's good to get reminders when they are driving me crazy. : )

Our lives are pretty interesting. Periodically, I'll go back and read over things that I've written and wonder how we fit it all in.

Ghee is the only way I can have a cat. Not only will he play with the mouse, if you click on more, you can feed him a steak!
