4. Hurricane Hat: started April 22, 2014

I've not started anything new but I've been thinking about it again. I worked a couple rounds of my Hurricane Hat this last week and that's about it. Things just haven't fallen into place with my knitting mojo yet. I hope it picks up soon...

Also, baby is still in there. I had my 4 month appointment this past Thursday and we didn't have to hunt too much to find the heartbeat. Little Man was excited until he realized that we didn't have the little ultrasound machine out...he likes seeing baby on the screen. Oh well. This coming Thursday is the anatomy ultrasound (to make sure all the parts are in the right place, placement of the umbilical cord and placenta, and maybe even a glimpse of what flavor...and given how things have gone, I fully expect Stormageddon to be uncooperative). Sooooo....yeah, that's what's going on with that.

Perhaps we'll have some photos next week. We'll see how things go this week...

In other random things happening here in San Mateo, I've been really (really) harsh on my books. I've basically boxed up over 75% of my non-academic books to go to Goodwill. There are plenty that I'm keeping but quite a few are going to Goodwill. I even went through and reorganized a bit in the bedroom this week. There's plenty more to do and we'll see if I can get around to it but any little bit helps at this point. I also went through Little Man's closet and did some rearranging (pulling out everything that's too small and moving over things he can fit into. He has so many clothes now......bah, who am I kidding? He had a zillion clothes before. Now he has MORE! 

Anyway, I hope you've had a lovely week :) And May the 4th be with you....


  1. Nesting already? You go. How exciting 20 weeks is rolling around! I smiled at seeing baby on the WIP list.

  2. Congratulations on the baby! I'm so glad Little Man is excited too! :)
