signing off for today

Seriously, I have to go knit, or I'll never finish that wrap in time for dinner tomorrow night. I'm just about halfway there, and it is gorgeous. I may have to take pictures.

I sent out a bunch of emails letting folks know about the upcoming gallbladder surgery, and got a nice outpouring of well-wishes in return. I have such great friends. I pointed several of them this way, too, but now I am promptly going to have to forget that any of them may be reading this. This journal isn't targeted to any particular group and I don't want to catch myself censoring what I write about.

DD's atrium (religious pre-school) is cancelled for tomorrow, which is great because it frees us up to do stuff we want, without the ol' drop-off, pickup hassle. It's one thing when the class is 2 or 3 hours, but this is just an hour and a half, and it seems that as soon as I get home from dropping her off, I have to go back and pick her up. It's a great class, though, and I'm glad I was able to get her enrolled this year.

Speaking of enrollments, DD is now enrolled for kindergarden at DS1's school for next year, and DS2 will be going to preschool for 3-year-olds on Wed and Fri mornings next year. That means we can still do story time on Tuesdays, which will be fun. I'm trying to imagine what it will be like those 2 days, having all 3 kids in school, if only for a few hours... sounds divine!

Feeling insanely good in spite of the upcoming surgery, probably because I had 2 glasses of wine with dinner. I cooked for the first time in eons, my Shrimp Italiano, and some buffalo sirloin burgers for the kids. Also tried TJ's low carb ravioli (too chewy for me, DH seemed to like 'em). All in all, it was yummy. I haven't cooked in a while...

OK, enough procrastinating, back to the knitting!
