MY LIFE WITH A 10 YEAR OLD AND MY OBSESSIONS....SEWING and KNITTING!

While the cat's away

The mice will play!

My boss is at a conference today, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to update the old blog. (but no pictures!)

I've finally come to the realization that life NEVER slows down when you have a child, work, try to keep a home, and have a very needy husband.

Since I posted last I have:

- been to San Diego twice

- finished my first pair of socks (yeah!)

- finished the front, back, and first sleeve of the Moss Rib Stitch Pullover

- frogged the Summer Cardigan

- cast on a new project

- finished up my surprise package for

Sue and Isabelle

- been to numerous playdates and birthday parties, gymnastics, and Pioneer Kids

I'm really looking forward to the long Thanksgiving weekend. I desperately need some down time. My niece and her boyfriend are driving up from San Diego and will stay at my parents house for the weekend. Noey is so excited to see Megan she can hardly stand it!

I'm hoping to get in a little Christmas shopping this weekend too. I have done none to date. (and that is stressing me out too) My niece and I used to always get up at the crack of dawn and be at the mall when the doors opened at 6:00am on the day after Thanksgiving. That was our holiday tradition. We'd shop for hours on end, and knock out all the gifts in one day. Since Noey was born we haven't been able to that. My mom has offered to watch Noey, but I don't know if she'll let me take Megan away from her for a couple of hours.

Wow, you've had so much going on. I'm so glad the "cat" was away so you could sneak in a quick post. :) Can't wait to see the pics of all your projects (hint, hint), ESPECIALLY THE SOCKS!!! Hurray for you!

Yay for you being able to update. Cant wait to see pictures too. I am sure Noey will understand if you do your Christmas shopping without her, at least your mind will be at rest and you will have it all done. I am about to do some more today, and will be glad when I have finished it all.

Hope you get to get some shopping in with your niece.

I have stressed a little over Chrissie. But have gotten a few pressies organised, just hoping to get everything done by Christmas
