It's bound to happen. Once they start school, they come in contact with all kinds of germs. Thankfully we seem to gain a week each year. While I"ve been ranting abt my job, this past week both kids have been sick. Baby Girl has a cold and #1 Son's asthma kicked into overdrive. He never has a problem during the summer and we havent had to use the nebuliser since March. But its working overtime right now!!
And to add to it, Baby Girl threw up yesterday morning. She woke me up at 6AM to tell me she wasnt feeling well and we had just enough time to grab a towel before she was sick. Once she was done she felt MUCH better and was her normal crazy self.
Until she ate some barbeque potato chips.
Poor thing was so sick again. She ended up falling asleep on the couch around 4pm. She didn't wake up until 10pm that night. Now THAT'S a nap!! We stayed up another couple of hours and both kids ended up sleeping with me that night. THEY sleep better but I'm squished in the middle.
Of course all of this happens when my sisters are coming out. AND the IO has been reloading the computer and adding in some stuff he will need for his computer upgrade. Which means no little computer breaks for me (hence no Saturday Sky post). Everything is back up and running, and while I still have all my favorites saved, they are in different order. PLUS all my emails disappeared..... I had some saved to read later, some saved to respond to later and some saved to refer to later! So if I owe you an email, I apologize. If you don't hear from me, its because of the IO, NOT because of me!
What did *I* do during all this madness? TONS of laundry! I'm almost caught up. And I've been working on the kitchen. And during her long nap, I cast on for a Magic 28 sock. This time I measured while I counted so I can knit w/o having to mark off each row. Yes I can always go back and count, but measuring works the best for me. I finished one sock and should be able to finish off another one in the next couple of days. I really like this pattern, I'm using size 6dpns with this one and I'm getting a gauge of 5.5/inch. The other pattern I use gives me a 5/inch gauge, but they are for an infant, perfect for socks that will still warm toes but not used in walking around a lot. I *may* get a 4th pair done for this challenge, but I do plan on Kool Aid dyeing them and I want to be sure I have enough time to do it all and still get them in the mail by Oct 1st.
And to keep this post from being pictureless, I'll leave you with a Hemi AWWWWWWW!
Don't hate me because I'm adorable!
