With Stormageddon's impending arrival sometime in late September/early October, I think I'm going to be reassessing my list soon. There are just some things that I won't be making (like all my sweaters - none of them are going to fit my growing belly) and a few things (quite a few things) that I probably just won't get around to, especially as my knitting mojo seems to have wandered off to go bowling and forgot how to get home. ::sigh::

Little Man spends most of his waking hours (at home) naked. He'll go on the potty that way...put anything on him and it's a crap shoot that usually involves cleaning up pee, hence being naked. It's just easier. 

Husband has had the plague all week. He finally started feeling a bit like a human should feel yesterday. He finally went to the doctor on Thursday and it's a good thing he did. He has bronchitis, an ear infection, and probably strep. If he had waited a few more days (like until today or tomorrow), he'd probably be in the hospital with pneumonia. It also appears that he has not shared with Little Man or me...which is grand. I don't have time for being sick. I have enough going on without that. 

Anyway, I should wander off...Little Man and I are watching Despicable Me 2 :) He loves the Minions!


  1. Mojo sometimes does that. I completely get it. My little minions love the minions too!

  2. Hope hubby feels better soon and what is not to like about minions!!

  3. Time is flying by isn't it? I also have to reassess my list, I'll probably push some projects to next years' list... Oh poor Husband, I hope he feels better soon.. And Little Man makes me smile.. If being naked will make him learn how to use the potty, then being naked it is, right? Have a good week!

  4. Not too worry about accidentally deleting my comment .. it's happened to me more times than I can count. I think the "publish" button and the "delete" button are too close together, LOL!

    knitting mojo comes and goes ... I guess you just have to let things happen. I find sometimes a quick little project re-inspires me. Maybe a minion or two?

  5. My gosh. In threes in your house. Glad your hub is getting better. Damn bug. So D list. I always laugh when you talk about Little Man's state of dress. He's just all hanging free and running about. I love it. Kids are so cute. I'm sorry you're chained to the house. Potty training is not easy. I hope you're feeling okay. Hug your yarn and craft.

  6. Maybe you can trade some of the sweaters you planned for yourself for sweaters for Stormagendon! :-D That seems like a win-win situation all around!

  7. Cassie loves minions too, she calls them mini! I've also called off all sweater knitting for myself until my body picks a shape and sticks to it!
