Playing Catch Up

I am doing a very poor job of playing catch up.  I only got 2 loads of laundry done today. I have not finished a hat, the hat I started tonight is only 1/2 way done. I did not get to the grocery store either. Maybe with more rest tomorrow will be better.

I did manage to drive to Saddlebrook to pick up a donation for the Old Pueblo Knitting Guild. I think I will have lots of happy knitters at the next meeting. I am almost through sorting the 10 garbage bag donation. I see, lots of hats,mittens, scarf's and sweaters in this donation. By the way if you would like to come to the next Guild meeting it is on October 16, 2014. At 9:30 am at Saint Phillips Church Murphy Hall. This is at the corner of River Road and Campbell Avenue in Tucson.

It's time to update my phone then call it a day.

I Am Back Home

I left for California on Tuesday to take care of Teri for a few days.  She is doing much better now.  So I am back home in Tucson tonight. 

I my down time I went on a hat knitting binge. I have not counted the rows yet. Here are the 13 hats that I knit, a full bakers dozen.

Through the Blender

Today was just one of those days. It started off in Tucson with an aide new to mornings. Way too many phone calls before breakfast. With a lot more after breakfast. 

Packing for an unplanned trip. Yes the yarn was packed before the clothes. Doing a car swap so Eric could get home from his day program.  

Followed by a very long drive in which a Boader Patrol Agent asked how my day was going.  I told him it was in the blender, but every thing was going to be OK. He must have thought that was a very odd answer. 

I also managed to visit a CVS Pharmacy in 2 diffrent states today. I am now at Teri's house for a few days of urgently needed mommy TLC for Teri.

The Craft Room

Today I tackled the craft room.  I did a lot of throwing and managed to fill 1/3 of the recycle barrel. The bright side of this is that I will never have touch those things again.  Then I went through half of the craft bags and managed to empty 4 bags and 2 baskets.  

I also made the hard choice to to deconstruct several projects that were going no where.  I think I have a few more to deconstruct tommrow too. 

The top of the craft cabinet was emptied, dusted and reorganized. I know later in the week I will also have to tackle the drawers too. 

Then I finished 1 doll blanket. Followed by reorganizing the yarn into new project baskets,  mostly for hats. 

My only problem seems to be it is 9:30 at night and all I want to do is keep cleaning.  I guess it would not be that bad to stay up and clean because tommrow is Johns day with Eric.

1 Hat a Day

I seem to be in the mode of knitting 1 hat a day. Here are the hats from the last 6 days. Yes, I cast another hat on tonight too. You do not have to worry though, they all are spoken for.

Eric was sick again last night.  The eyrping went on in to the wee hours of the morning.  I have been trying to not to drink caffeine after 11 pm when I am up at night with Eric. This has left me tired at night and the next day.  I am beginning to rethink this idea.  

Yes I spent last night and today cleaning, taking care of Eric and doing laundry.  A random factoid. Did you know that you can use a Swifter Duster to dust mop a very small room with out the need to run and get the broom.  Yes, I did this in the guest bathroom off the laundry room. 

I really don't see a problem with caffeine after 11 pm. Take tonight for instance.  The post viral asthma has kicked in. So if I have to stay up late, there is no question about it, I will be having at least 1 serving of caffeine.  I am just exhausted.  

I am hoping that Eric will fall asleep soon.
