Lucy, show me your dress!  (She's quite literal at age 22 months!)

Broken arm

Julia broke her arm in Tuesday. Poor thing!  Here she is on the way to get her cast:

And here she is the next day trying not to smile. 



It's 4 am and I've been wide awake for two and a half hours.  AURGH.



Hello, Blog!  I keep thinking I'm back for real, and then life gets in the way again.  I'm sorry for that.  I think about you a lot more than I actually show up here.

Lots of busyness in my world right now.  Work got extra exciting yesterday and may simmer down over the next day or two, but then again, it may not!

We finished work on the garage, and it's nice to have such a large, well-laid out storage space.  We've also finished emptying out our two storage units- wohoo!  Now we have to get our junk organized, and prepare for a giant garage sale. 

I haven't knit a stitch since the Olympics.  Since I became a monogamous knitter a couple years ago, I always have a lull between major projects.  While I'm not sure what I'll cast on next, I've got a couple ideas brewing.

That's all the news for now!

Going really well....

I finished my second sleeve this morning and am about to join for the yoke. I don't want to jinx anything, but this is going a little too smoothly.... (Knitting [Cobblestone](/patterns/library/cobblestone-pullover)) Total progress as of 2/20

And in my other challenge, I'm down 2 pounds (I did start before Wednesday), which means I am 8 pounds away from leaving obesity and being merely overweight.
