7 Small Shawls: T - 56 days and counting down.
I spent several hours with my baby (I can still call him that - he's only 7) at the doctor's today. He truly couldn't breathe. He needed two albuterol breathing treatments before his lungs were clear enough to tell if it was pneumonia or not. (It's not). And can I tell you how wonderful it was to see pink color come back into his face? And how horrifically selfish and ugly I felt having hoped that he wouldn't quite be over his cold so I wouldn't have to go to a swim meet this weekend? Ugh.
But he seems to be fine now: sleeping peacefully and without fever. And breathing, which is most important. Whew.
My brain is feeling random today, so beware of disjointed factoids.
1. I bought two pairs of rain boots at my very favorite online store, Sierra Trading Post,
in hopes that they would prevent this weekend's swim meet from being rainy.
So far, I think it's working, although I also think I'm probably staying home with Bear.
2. I finished listening to The 19th Wife audiobook. I'm torn about this book. At first, I thought it was largely true, but as far as I can tell after reading more about it, it's mostly fiction. I feel almost betrayed by some of the unnecessary fabrication having to do with real historical figures. Isn't the actual history interesting enough?
3. I am freaking out about finishing up my 7 Small Shawls, but I am absolutely and completely determined that they will be done by the end of the year. Maybe not all test knitted, but they will be designed and knitted by me. Yes, they will.
4. I have a lot to do this weekend.
