Wow, we made it to Georgia, after 28 hours. We had to stop every two hours to walk the dogs (and us) and we got so tired we ended up punch drunk; but we got here in time for the hooding ceremony on Thursday night. I had time to get the dogs settled, take a shower, and put on clean clothes and we got to the university just in time. I am so proud of my daughter she has worked very hard and had a 3.9 GPA, all while working full time. The graduation ceremony on Saturday was great (and thankfully brief); now she has pneumonia and strep throat, and she is as sick as a dog. I wonder where that phrase came from? What is sick as a dog? And why do we compare people to sick dogs? Just wondering. . .
The weather has been mercifully and unseasonably cool, but I am good with that.:-) We are just vegging now that DD1 is so sick, but that is all I wanted to do anyway. There is really nothing I want to do here but get a facial and knit, so everything is good. I started a pink Cotton Tots baby blanket for a woman at work who just discovered that she is having a girl. I am using the pattern that MajorKnitter used here; but adapting it to the size I wanted. Because of the differences in the yarn, I do not think the different stitches will be as noticeable, but it will be pretty and comfy for the baby, which is what counts. I am also finishing my second sock from the mystery yarn ball. I am dying to see what is in the center of the yarn. lololo
I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day and a great weekend. I have to be at work on Monday morning, so we plan to leave here on Saturday. See you in the funny papers.
