Whew its already the 15th

Incredible, isn't it?! Half the month is already gone but I'm not very sad since I can account for all but 3 days of it. ;D I am doing well, we all are actually. We are working on school stuff ~ I had to be wear my guidance counselor hat yesterday and they are coming along. I'll have to take time to write up our schedule, booklist and term dates but that can wait. I've not posted in over a week because I'm usually on too late to make intelligent conversation so I've been reading blogs, commenting if I'm alert, and visiting over on Ravelry. Since I was on early today, I thought I'd pop in and give a quick update. heehee

I'm knitting away ~ my 2nd socks are moving right along. The Monkey peds are almost done ~ doing toe decrease. The manly sock is in the stockinette round and round stage, so I've picked up a few books on cd to keep from going stir crazy while knitting. LOL I've finished off one cd ~ Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters. Its the first book in the Amelia Peabody series that my ds and I just love. I enjoyed this book alot and even listening to parts again while ds is listening ~ its that enjoyable. I've managed to get 5 1/2 chapters done of Emma but need to be thru 15 by Sunday and I also need to read my pages for the CMSeries study. I'll post more on that tomorrow when I do my summary to the group. I'm planning new knitting projects but having self-control on starting them til both 2nd socks are done. Yeah me! this way I will have some FOs to show off before talking about new OTNs though the SOTSii starts this friday and I can't wait. I will be using Cashwool in a lovely mocha color but need to obtain some wood or bamboo needles since I just found out the metal doesn't work well w/this yarn.

On the homefront ~ still no menu plan but I have cooked dinner 2x this week and planning what we will eat tonight. ;D I need to sit down and get this typed up but may just use the 4wk rotating menu plan I created a few years ago. That definitely would be simple, wouldn't it? Sk8Chick is at work, so is dh ~ Da Boy is at the skate park and Riley is somewhere around here trying out her bath & body works stuff. I'm knitting the toe of the sock between checking the weather and writing this post. I'm multi-tasking, hmm...I still can do that ~ wow! Since starting peri-menopause, multi-tasking was a curse since I couldn't remember what I was last doing or about to do. I'm glad to know I'm getting better though I don't want to do too much at once anymore ~ too tiring.

Well, I'd better go and get dinner somewhat started since everyone will want to eat soon or at least by 8p. Talk w/you all soon. Have a great evening!

It is amazing that it's already the middle of January, I know! At the same time, Christmas seems like it was a really long time ago already. Glad to hear that everything sounds like it's going well.
