OK, so we are SUPPOSED to be driving to VA with the girls today. Like right now.
Except for the van is in the shop, or the "car doctor" as the children call the mechanic. It was doing this funky thing where as you speed up the AC, lights and radio volume would go up, and as you slow they went down. Fun for like 3 minutes.
The house is 33% packed and 100% messy. I am not even pretending that it could be clean again.
Plus big-sis is currently obsessed with spelling things. She is like THIS close to reading.
Problem is I do math, not spelling. You should have heard her huff when her dad told her I had spelled dinosaur wrong and she had to fix it on all the pages of her notebook. (What?!? There's no "E"?? Betcha you can't do partial integration!!). Her exasperated "mom is losing it" glare stung, I tell you.
Oh, and the server is down at the school board office, so the kids in the online class I am teaching are in a bit of a panic. They have a midterm next week.
The one oasis right now is my knitting. I am rolling away on my hurricane swap sock, I think I have the kinks in the pattern worked out.
I actually submitted a pattern somewhere...fingers crossed.
So I have all day to pack, and balance the checkbook, and stretch the last of the food for one more day.
And try to figure out what to knit in the car tomorrow.
Oh, here's little sis posing in the vest I mentioned last post.
The yarn is some leftover KnitPicks stuff I had. The pattern I made up as I went along. Moss stitch center, stockingette along the sides.
I used a tubular cast on...I am obsessed with this cast on now...it makes things look so nice!
Here is a real shot:
Sad part is I had to go outside in the rain to take this...there is not a clean surface in the house!!
