Rogue Sit-Rep

It started a few days ago with The Eldest. Then yesterday it was The Youngest. And today, it's me. We're falling like flies around here again. I'm on my last few days of antibiotics and dang if the kids didn't infect me with a cold virus. My throat's all scratchy again and I'm feeling achy.

At least this time I won't need my singing voice, that's a blessing. But the bad thing is, the kids and I are going out of town for the weekend to South Carolina. Go ahead and ask me how much I'm looking forward to being stuck in a car with an immature three year old boy with a cold for five hours. Go ahead, ask away. But I'm warning you, the answer probably won't be a positive one.

On to the knitting sit-rep: (that's a situation report for those not in the know)

I've gotten to the section where I need to graft the hood together. (If the kids will stop arguing for five minutes, I might get that finished tonight. I hate holidays and mid-winter breaks, I really do. Why can't we have year around school here? Or better yet, a year around public military boarding school? That way it'd be free.)

Here's the pic:

Somehow I'm thinking this won't get done by my Friday deadline. Still have to graft the together the hood and do the sleeves. ack. Of course I still have five hours of drive time, but then it won't get blocked in time to wear it. Oh well. I'll push on and hope for the best. Wish me luck!
