3/10, TAR, Sleeve, Christmas Eve

I just realized that three of my last 10 posts contained pictures of my face. Quite the narcissist, huh? Hmm, I guess it’s time to talk about knitting again or something. Which I would gladly do, since I did sit down to watch The Amazing race last night with my knitting, and I planned to get right to that…except that I got “lapped’, and by that I mean, SomeBaby wanted to sit with me. I’ve finally learned that the one thing that absolutely will not wait is a baby that wants your lap. Tomorrow, they’ll be one day older, and soon enough, not a baby at all. The sleeve will wait :)

So, are you ready? I am. This year, the children are getting three gifts under the tree, Santa is bringing a family gift and filling stockings, and that’s it. Financially and space-wise, it is impossible for me to do for 8 kids what I did for one, or even for two or three. There’s a freedom in that. They don’t lack for thing, and if you could see the amount of stuff that has gone out of here for goodwill and the town dump over the past three weeks, you would understand exactly what I mean. Too much stuff. More stuff than even military relocation specialists could manage. And I haven’t done my room yet. I will though, and soon.

Speaking of babies (see the first paragraph), posting will likely be light this week. I have children to play with. :)
