All that cleaning

did not happen! I hope I get points for good intentions, because all that got accomplished was pumping milk, feeding the baby, washing one load of dipes, visiting Grandmother, knitting 15 rows on the back of DD#5s sweater and making DD#1s long over-due birthday cake.

So far today, I have pumped, started the dryer and fed/am nursing the baby. The good news is that I really can’t get any further behind :) Right? Please tell me I am right!

Ok, so today, I am expecting Lisa for a visit. She said she was bringing yummy real eggs from her real chickens. We’ll have breakfast for dinner again! The eggs are so rich you don’t even need butter on your grits!

I’d like to get some cleaning done, and also finish the back of DD#5s sweater, and work on DD#5s blanket while it is cool enough to do so. Then, in my (wildest) dreams, I am imagining casting on for that shirt I told you about a couple days ago. Wouldn’t it be awesome paired with this shrug? It will also be for DD#5, since that’s the yarn I have now. Besides, she is behind in knitted goodies. The other kids have several years on her, see????

DH went this morning to pay the water bill, since it was payday. That took a big chunk of his check, but it’s the last thing that needed to be handled before we can make serious headway on the mortgage. I tell you, I never thought I would see the day when we paid 100 bucks a month for water. Either I am old, or country-fied, ’cause you know this little town didn’t even have public water when I grew up here. And flushing the toilet was also free. Now, even my Grandmother’s house has public water, and she lives in a town smaller than this, with her nearest neighbor a tenth of a mile away.
