... Just intimate I might be in danger and suddenly everyone comments. Not that I am in danger. We live in a pretty safe part of town. I'm more likely to be disturbed by a party than by anything else, even during the May break.

We're doing okay here. I'm still getting used to being the only one who can soothe the baby at night, but I think things are going alright.

Money is still a problem, but it will be until gas prices go down, or Chris's raise comes through, or both. We won't know until after this week's paycheck.

But hey, we're alright, ya know? We are getting used to our new schedule, and we think that we may be able to get the oldsmobile fixed--the one with the transmission problem. But more on that later.

On the knitting front, I'm working on several gifts right now. Charity knitting is taking a back seat right now.

Pictures are coming soon, I promise :D. I just need to find the time. But for right now, there is a munchkin that needs to be tickled.

Take care, everyone!

The stuff ...

... and the thing, as my hubby says. It has been jumping here at chez A'tuin. My husband is moving to the night shift, so I've dug out the old baseball bat and machete and placed them at strategic places within the apartment. Not that we actually have anything to rob, but it makes me feel better.

Also, lots of knitting being done, but not the gift knitting--sock knitting. Socks keep ambushing me at every turn. I'll cast on for a pair and an a couple of hours later, I'll be like, whafuck is going on, man? How did I get to a heel flap? I was knitting my mom's bag wasn't I?

My green project for Project Spectrum is coming along, and I really do have lots of photos to post, just no time to upload. I promise, as soon as the sky stops falling and the baby stops teething, I'll catch up on pics and -alongs.

BTW, a word to the any would be jokesters or thieves who read this blog. Yes, I really do have a machete, and yes, I do know how to use it.
