Guess what I saw?
More importantly, guess what I bought!!!!?!!!
I couldn't resist it at only $40! Now I need to find it a home, and get some material, and some thread, and a book or two from the library, and some....

I finished two things this weekend:
This is a hat for a squirrel. Don't ask, my sister is a bit crazy
These were going to be gloves for Kandyce to go with her hat (see below). They are now going to Ayanna.

Then the power went out, so we went to my uncle's house:
This is most of the part of my family who lives in Oregon. We also have a branch in Colorado.
I started and finished a hat for Kandyce, and started some gloves for her.

I am starting c25k again next week. I bought a Nike + iPod Sport Kit - USA thing for my iPod from eBay. I found a pattern for a cozy for the sensor. Ravelry link. When I get the thing in the mail, I will finish it off.

That is okay. It is not guilt. I have done better this month (I think) than the last two or three years COMBINED!
Doll for Christmas;
Corset Silk Tank Top;
The doll was supposed to be for birthday in August;
Corset Silk Tank Top - freshly started a few days ago - needs full concentration and for me. Therefore, probably won't get done!;
Silky Negligee - for a birthday YEARS ago. Maybe for a birthday next year.

I had such a good morning today!
Backstory: when Kandyce was 18 months, she had no words. The pediatrician recommended we see a speech therapist. We have been seeing her for about six months. She is lovely. However, I don't think she is doing anything for her. Kandyce is fine. She has always been fine. She didn't choose to talk. She had every other milestone knocked out of the park. I wasn't worried. She talks now. It is mostly not english, but more and more everyday. She sepaks in sentences of mostly not english. I am okay with this. However, everytime Sara came to the house, Kandyce would keep her big mouth shut. She would talk in single words once in awhile.
TODAY HOWEVER! She spoke to her just like she speaks to us! I was so excited and proud. She finally got to see what I see everyday!
Such a good morning!!!
Can't you see how much she has to say:

Also, since I am currently attending school, it is a good idea to get something else to distract me from reading the chapter I am currently supposed to be reading!
So, as I said, I am in school. I am trying to get an associates in computers. I would like to be a Geek Squad when I grow up. I have been trying for a few terms, now, and honestly it isn't going very well. I have too much on my plate to spend enough time on my school work.
On my plate:
- Yesterday I had a meeting at the middle school to help them get the website up and running.
- I also had a meeting at the elementary school to help get the parking lot safer. We need to paint a crosswalk, and repaint some no-parking signs. This takes more work than you would think. I met with someone from the district yesterday to start the process. Truthfully, I think this year is too much to hope for.
- Last Wednesday I had a meeting at the high school. Hopefully, we can get a yearbook there this year.
- Tonight I have another meeting at the high school for the brand-new Parent Advisory Council.
This doesn't count my taxi duties for three kids at three different schools and a husband, or the simple fact that I have four kids.
I am knitting, but since I am currently at school, I don't have any pictures I can show right now. Let's see:
- Socks for Birthday in 40 days
- doll for birthday last August (maybe Christmas, now)
- something for me!
- more, I am sure, but...
Let's hope I have more everyday this month! I think I like it better than Facebook. I don't have many knitter friends there.
