In Bed at 7:30????Baby A does not, as a rule, have a "bedtime." Mommy and Daddy have a funny idea that there is a "bedtime," but Baby A decides when she'll fall asleep, and absolutely nothing Mommy or Daddy can do will change that. Mostly it's 9:30ish, which sucks. Sometimes I hit the lottery, like tonight (fingers crossed), and she goes to sleep at 7:30, giving me time to do things like update the blog, or knit, or watch a movie...
In reality, I should continue taping up the basement in preparation for painting tomorrow, but that sucks, so I'll avoid it.
Instead, I'll show you pictures of my dad's 2009 vest:
It's based on AS's "Erin Cardigan" from Celtic Collection, except that I more or less changed the colors all around. I was trying to make them a bit more masculine, and I was also using Jamieson & Smith Shetland instead of whatever crazy yarns she called for. I'm not minding this one, but I think next year I'll go back to a more traditional fair isle pattern in blues and greens - I'm a little tired of the extra long floats in this one!
Right, so that's the knitting out of the way. I guess I should explain that even though I'm failing at establishing a strict bedtime, I'm definitely running a tight ship in other ways! Baby A has to follow a strict exercise regimine:
... she has to study VERY important subjects ("Tails are Not for Pulling" is a core coursebook)...
... and, if she has done ALL of her chores, she is sometimes allowed to relax for a few minutes!
