So knitting takes another back seat....
I have been working part, part time for an after school program for going on three years now and I get a call from my boss who is also my friend on Tuesday. She sounded kind of upset and asked if I could come in early. I was like uh oh. She said not to worry it wasn't bad for me, it could be a good thing.
Her assistant was leaving and the person they had hired to replace her came in for one day and decided it wasn't for her either. Could I pretty, pretty please fill in?!?!?! She would try to make it as flexible as possible for as possible especially because of the little ones and Miss Sunshine. How could I resist the opportunity?
My Mom and MIL are going help out with child duty and I am shifting some things around. I am going to see how it works out on a temporary basis to see if I like the working on a fuller time basis and how the girls handle it especially Miss Sunshine. Right now the Princess isn't handling too well, actually.
Perhaps the knitting needs to go to work with me....

So knitting takes another back seat....

The Princess is on Spring vacation but Miss Sunshine is not until Wednesday. Well, technically Thursday, Wednesday is parent teacher conferences but since I speak to Miss Sunshine's teacher practically every day, I don't really need a conference, now do I?
The Princess and her dad went Snow tubing on Saturday and Miss Sunshine stayed back, which was fine by me. Snow and I do not get along. It was a good thing though because Miss Sunshine had a back-slide and had a "classical Autism" weekend. The Princess had BLAST though which I am so grateful for.
I know that there is a coffee and yarn swap coming up but, believe it or not, I am going to sit that one out. I am probably going to sit a few knitting swaps out. My last great swap pal was Barbara and although she spoiled the girls and me rotten, I haven't even had time to post an elaborate thank you to her. She does know how thankful I am, of course, since I have thanked her often in emails but, I have been oft been broached boorishly that I need to post and so here it is publicly.
One of my closest friend who moved to Texas last year persuaded me to enter a soap swap. I sheepishly did that. The Princess, who is a budding young soap maker, wants to make the entry so she is very excited.
I am planning on taking the Princess to the Philadelphia Art Museum on Wednesday. She has never been and it has been a long time for me. I hope she enjoys it as much as I did the first time I went, roughly the same age she is now.

Okay, so since I haven't been blogging, I am OBVIOUSLY not getting any knitting done. I have three very lovely little projects sitting in their lovely little bags begging to be picked up but I either don't have the time or the energy or have a sweet little ball of Sunshine jumping on my stomach saying "Mommy no sticks play, read, chase!" till 11 PM at night.
The good news is with all the changes I have been making to Little Miss Sunshine's life she is talking and making herself understood a lot more. The bad news is, she is coming out of her shell and wants to tell me EVERYTHING and be with me from the time she wakes till the time she passes out (11 PM). Don't get me wrong, I don't want things to go back to the way they were, NEVER!, I am finally seeing some progress and of course I want more and more some knitting time would be nice too.
I am going to have to figure out a way to balance all of this which is a struggle right now. I mean, when did I forget swap deadlines or not find the time to blog in a long time? I am going to try to get my frustrations out on Miss Sunshine's Blog so, if you want to know what goes on in that wonderful world, check it out often. It is a wacky world and I wish I could get off the ride.
Until I get back to knitting, I am not sure what to blog about. Any suggestions? I could review some of my yarns ;-)

Life gets in the way of "things" sometimes and such is what goes on here.
It is made with Blue Sky Alpaca Dyed Cotton. Using my favorite yarn always cheers me up!
