What do I have to show for myself?

What have I been doing with my time lately?

Knitting socks for Dad's birthday later this month. Knitting a surprise for a free pattern, a designer trio from Wendy, Wendy, and me. And sketching and planning. Precious little blog-worthy knitting. If only I could knit in my sleep: think of the progress I would make. I could do all the long, repetetive boring parts in my sleep, freeing up my waking hours for the exciting stuff.

Today, I registered The Little Emperor for kindergarten! Wow. This was fairly painless for me, in terms of time and form-filling, because he was already in the school system computers. He was in a speech therapy preschool classroom last year and at the beginning of this year, so I had already done all the stuff with verifying birthdate, social security number, immunization records, etc. All I really needed to do was tell the school secretary his name and sign up for two appointments. Piece of cake. I'm very excited about fall. The last time I finally had a kid starting kindergarten, I went and got pregnant right away. Believe me, that's not happening this time.

thanks for reminding me to get going on my rendition! It's sitting here, next to me on the chair, calling out to me: Knit me! Knit me!

ye'r absolutely sure about that now are ya? LOL, but I know countless people who just seem to churn out another baby about the time freedom is looming it's enticing head on the horizon.
My brothers wife is preggers with her 5th - his first! He married a widow, and this will essentially be her 3rd go-round on the baby wheel. She's got two who're teens, two who're 5 and 7, and now another on the way.
