So much for that 'blog every day' idea. But when I don't blog, hey, lots to report!
Well, probably not that much.
The Goober tracked home a killer germ from hell that has lingered with all three of us, for weeks. Yay. Mine's turned into a sinus infection, I think the husbeast and the Goober are just fulla snot.
The whining and bitching that I've been doing about physical therapy is backing off some. I'm able to feel a difference by now, so, well. Obvious results make it a little easier to live with - even if my awesome PT keeps adding on exercises.
Since I've been sitting around at home, whining and full of green snot, I got some knitting done!
This is the last of the ridiculous amounts of gauge swatches I've knit for the current design I'm working on. (Am I the only one who knits up an entire swatch of Cascade 220 for this kind of thing?) Since I designed the twisted stitch pattern mostly from scratch (inspired by an old sock!) I had to knit the whole damn thing to make sure it worked. And, hey, didja know that cables and twists suck in more than regular stockinette? WHO KNEW! So there's that to fuck with, too. But I'm almost at the 'knit the damn thing' stage. Whee!
The Goober took her own picture yesterday.
Not the most flattering photo of her, ever, but still pretty funny. She's been having fun with the computer lately. I got her the "Crayola Art Studio" for Christmas, and now that she's got the hang of computers in general, well, she'd have carpal tunnel by now if I let her play as long and often as she wanted to.
Sekhmet still guards her, as often as not. Just like when the Goober was a baby.
Lately we've been making the Goober do pushups when she screws up. Willful screwups, not mistakes. Seems more humane than spanking her, and she's at an age where spanking is a little iffy, anyway. Nothing else works. So, pushups! I totally stole the idea from Sensei at karate class. He makes them do squats. Between the two of us, this kid's going to be well-mannered AND fit.
Oh, look! Kitty!
