Thank goodness it's almost Friday. Not that I have a relaxing weekend to look forward to or anything, but at least I won't have to get up quite so early! Hmmm... that sounded rather whiney. It's not meant to be... I just love sleeping. And last night, thanks to my bad-influence friend who just HAPPENED to stop by with the Matrix DVD, I didn't get to bed until 11ish. No, I had not seen the Matrix before. Yes, I must have been living in an isolated cave. Although I didn't think it was the best movie ever or anything, I definitely enjoyed it, and by the end was so engrossed with the visual effects and fast moving scenes that the knitting was retired. Well, it didn't help that Cricket was sleeping on my instructions, so I really didn't know what the next row was supposed to be.

The bad news last night was that I got pretty much no packing done. I did pick up several boxes and suitcases from my parents' house, but they are still empty right now. Well, there's always tonight before aerobics. And tomorrow (because I know how to have fun on a Friday night!) I'm going to (hopefully) power through a lot of packing.

My bright idea yesterday afternoon was to wind the skein for the april sock of the month club into a nice ball so I could start a pair of socks for my Grandma on the bus this morning. Well, between Cricket the yarn-attacker and my own clumsiness, I managed to drop the skein not once, but TWICE, and pretty much ruined any chance of unwinding it tangle-free. D'oh! I brought the mess into work with me today for some lunch-time frustration. Hopefully, with enough patience, I'll get it back in order! But it does mean that I probably won't be able to actually start KNITTING the yarn until after I move... oh well. Plenty of other yarn to work with! (Yes, all of this does mean that I finished the regia striped socks for my California friend... except for the cuffs. But all the cuffs are going to wait until after the move. Sense a theme here? ;)

Hmmm... I guess for the next week or so, "wait until after the move" is my:
