I can’t believe it has been a whole week almost since I last posted! Things have been really hard to adjust to since Ian was born, I finally start to get settled and we all get sick. I took three kids (well, DH took two) and me to the doctor this week. Then I get an influx of work from my mom’s job. That is what I really should be doing now, since all the kids are sleeping.

I have had quite a week of knitting, even though we were all sick. I actually started two projects at once, a first for me, and I got the supplies to start a third, but I haven’t yet. I still have my baby blanket on the back burner now, my Father’s Day tie from last year, and now the Hallowig from Knitty, and the Yarn Harlot poncho to work on. I have been really motivated to start the Hallowig by the Hallowig knitalong, which is already over I think, but at least I get to see all the cool wigs. I had an interesting trip to Michael’s the other day, to get the Caron Supersoft that I am using for my wig. Our local Michael’s is right next to the post office and technically within walking distance from my house so I do go there more than I should. Our Michael’s has really improved in the past year. They have a large yarn selection, good knitting books, and have even added Clover bamboo needles, of which I have a large incomplete collection. It’s nice to know I can easily get some supplies if I don’t have the time to trek down to San Carlos (3 freeway exits) or Half Moon Bay (farther, but a nicer trip) or even farther for one of our LYS.

In between knitting, real estate stuff (I’m still no farther on my broker’s license, which sucks), I have been trying to read Al Franken’s “Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them”. For a librarian, I guess I have a typical amount of time to read — very little. It is hilarious, though, even if it is a bit dated. Next on the list is “Poplorica: A popular history of the fads, mavericks, inventions, and lore that shaped modern America” by Smith and Kiger. This one sounds really interesting, if I ever get to it!
