12-12 Good Morning!
Hey everyone. Hope your weekend was better than mine. Our son-in-law's grandmother died and it was a very sad time. I kept the grandkids Friday evening thru Sat evening. I'll keep again tonight. This was one terrific woman and she'll be sorely missed. :crying:
Of course when the kids are at my house, there's is no knitting whatsoever! however, I did manage to knit last night and finished the sweater front. I'm now on the ribbing starting the back.
How is everyone this fine day?

My oldest is finally well enough to go to school this morning. Man, I HATED this schedule but now they I have been doing it for a few months, it sure is nice to slip back into normal life again. I bought the kids a bunch of arts and crafts supplies so I have been cleaning paint off of everything the last few days, but at least they are more manageable. When I dropped ds off this morning I found out there is a field trip tomorrow. Nothing like short notice! And I haven't knitted much lately, my life has been a little crazy.

Sorry to hear about the death in the family, Tigger. So sad to lose someone near Christmas. Big hug to you and your family.

That is exactly what I am doing! I've been up since 7:00 and the only productive thing that I have done is pour cereal for my kids Today I get the pleasure of putting up the Christmas Tree and writing my last paper for class. Busy day here *sigh* Not much knitting for me today :(

Tig I am sorry to hear about the gma in law dying. It is always so hard to lose someone. {{Hugs}}

Enjoy your Grandkids!

have to laugh at the paint everywhere!
of course, I'm not the one cleaning it up. But it's fun to watch kids with crafts and they learn so much as well.
rachel, I'm so jealous! would love to be in my socks!
oh well, after work, after work, after work..........
did you knit your socks?? :XX:

I wish! No, I'm very much a beginner knitter.

*looks around, whispers* I crochet.

I'm trying to find the time to learn, though. There are some gorgeous designs out there.

I didn't see our sunrise this morn, but it is nice and pleasant today. the sky is blue and the sun is shining so nicely. it's mild to me also.
rachel, I also crochet. I started knitting about 8 months ago. love it but crochet used to be my passion.

hmmm... my weekend wasn't so great....

I gave my students their final exam on Friday so i've spent the weekend looking over their final lab reports and exams.... I'm up to my eyeballs in grading but have absolutely ZERO motivation to complete it. Oh well, i still have a few more days to get through this mountain since i don't submit grades until Thursday.

But the big kicker was that i spent last night in the emergency room. :( It seems that a problem that i thought had been taken care of 2 years ago has come back with even worse symptoms. Not a good sign. It COULD be nothing, it COULD be major... But the bottom line is that i won't know until i have another, rather invasive procedure. DAMN! :( Oh well... at least i have grading and knitting to keep me occupied while i'm waiting around for doctors.... :rollseyes:

However, one good thing this morning was that the red-shouldered hawk (who lives in the woods behind our house) came up and sat on a branch close enough for me to go out on the deck to take pictures of him. He was MAGNIFICENT!! Didn't even flinch with me creeping closer and closer to him... Obviously the cats were NOT allowed out... I love that bird and his mate... they can have the squirrels but not my cats!!

-hh

P.S. Funny note: As i was sitting in the ER waiting to be seen, i was filling out my Molecuar Biology exam key. I think the ER doc was more interested in talking about the class i teach and taking my exam than examining me!!

You teach Molecular Bio? My daughter has a degree in Molecular Bio, but is now in graduate school for Public Policy. Decided she didn't like the lab life.

I hope it's nothing serious and you feel better soon, HH! Look at these cute Hedgies I found!
