On a more positive note, the poncho I cast on last night now has the 1st 6 inches knit on the second piece. Wearing the same shoes I wore yesterday I managed to walk 10,000 steps or about 5 miles today. I had no knee pain, only the very usual stiffness that comes with exhaustion.
I am trying bribery with Eric tonight. If he sleeps tonight he gets to hang with his friends tomorrow and get extra hugs. So I am going to take a chane and call it an early evening.
