So off Catie and I go. I'm giggling as we're driving in. And as we check in. The nurses were all very nice and understanding. Catie had finally calmed down on the trip to the ER, and so was more cooperative. Thank goodness she's comfortable in the hospital, not because she's ever been a patient, but because of coming to visit me. She settled down and started playing.
The ER doc had me try and blow in her mouth. SUCCESS! A big ol' raisin booger came flying out. She hung out at the hospital with the nurses while I checked on a newborn. Then she comes home and tells me she wants a granola bar with a raisin in it, so she can take the raisin out. What is she going to do with that little dessicated grape, pray tell?

I have a 4 day weekend this weekend. Today is my birthday...#34. Just another day at this point. But yesterday was awesome. Catie, her friend (Gesa's daughter) and I had a "girls' day" out. We went to lunch, Build-A-Bear, the bookstore, for tea anc cookies, and to get a hair cut. I don't know about them, but I was EXHAUSTED at the end of the day. They seriously wore me out! Here we are leaving home:
The girls with their haircuts and "ponies"
And just so Jack didn't feel left out, here's one of him. Looks like HE's the one who really needed the haircut. He's quite scruffy.
I have tomorrow and Monday off. Knitting and more knitting are in my future. Monday night I'm taking a 2 socks at once class. I'm hoping that will speed up my sock knitting some. Other than that, things are pretty boring. I'm looking forward to a morning of sleeping in. Assuming the kids are agreeable to that. Please oh please oh please!

I've been a bit of a fiber/craft slut lately and went on a little crochet binge for awhile. I made a bag and have started an afghan. But, alas, I missed my true love, knitting. How could I have strayed? I do have to admit, crochet is a fun mistress. But knitting...ahh...knitting...
Today I finished a pair of socks. The March Rockin' Sock club sock...Leafling.
They're from medium weight, and I'm more of a lightweight kinda girl, but sometimes it's good to broaden your horizons, right? I loved the pattern and colorway. Now to get cracking on May and July's socks. And just because that's not enough, I started a new baby sweater today. I have a couple of friends/co-workers that have had babies lately, and I'm a little behind on the gift knitting.
There's so much more to update y'all on. What would you like to hear about next?
