knitter deadline fail, but it's ok :)

I still haven't finished the second BSJ for my friend who was pregnant with twins, and this morning, the babies arrived (36 wks). They're happy and healthy and just about 5lb each, so I still have time, but I'm just thrilled that they're here and OK :)

And now I have to clean up (lab party last night) and knit (!)... more soon, hopefully.

Whew. That feels better. The boys went out this morning and I un-decorated the entire apartment, caught up on some TV that I missed over the vacation (and during the cumulative four days drive), and did some knitting.

I still have about 40% of a BSJ to finish, but it's going forward, at least. And the latte that Hubby brought back was a welcome treat :)

I have yet to decide on New Year's resolutions (or even if I'll make some), but I'm liking the fact that there's so much potential.

Now, off to the needles!

And, the bottom falls out...

... with the inevitable post-holiday let down. My dad left this afternoon (one day early, because of some impending weather, and an unfortunate need to be home for a funeral by Tuesday). I've sent the boys out for a walk while I contemplate the five days worth of cleaning I have ahead of me, and listen to Amanda Palmer/Dresden Dolls/Evelyn Evelyn and wallow.

This was the first time N. got upset when my dad left. Usually he doesn't get it. Today he wailed, "I want Papa to come back! Papa, come back! I need Papa to come back!" Which sucked.

So I will take my pitiful self and start unpacking. And contemplate getting back on caffeine, because I don't want to be draggy for much longer.
