january eighteen :: 159 weeks old

Sean is 159 weeks old today.

Sean had his swimming lesson this morning. I talked again with the mom of the other 2 girls in his class and learned that she also used to knit a bit and crochet. We talked a bit, I worked on my Mara Shawl and Sean enjoyed his swim lesson.

Today I did ALL the laundry. There is nothing left dirty except for what we wore today. I wanted it all done before I left tomorrow. I can't believe it's all done as well. And folded. And put away! While folding the 8 loads I watched some tv, catching up on House, Desperate Housewives, and Bones. I got my eyebrows waxed mid-afternoon - and boy do I feel like a million bucks now. I don't know what it is about getting your eyebrows waxed, but it always makes me feel so much better.

Upon picking up Sean & Mack from daycare today Sean wanted me to take a picture of him with the Habs collage he helped his teachers make, so that he could show his dad. I thought that was a brilliant idea. He pointed out a bunch of them that he helped his teacher do. It was so cute. One of his teachers, is a huge habs fan as well.

This evening, went by too quickly. I killed an imaginary spider so that Sean would go back to sleep. I finished packing. I knitted a bit on my Mara Shawl to transfer it over to my Zephyr needles for the flight tomorrow. I'm all organized. It'll be a breeze getting the boys up tomorrow morning at 3:45 am to get out the door. We have to be at the airport at 4:30 am. It's insane. I'm not sure why I agreed to such an early time. What was wrong with the 11:40 am flight again? I'm going to miss Jamie, but it'll be nice to have a week away from him so that we miss each other more. And it'll be a fun week hopefully. My skin definitely needs the warmer weather, that I do have to say.

So as I figured, my Mara Shawl did not get finished tonight, there's no way I had time to do that, one row practically takes me about 45 minutes to knit. I'm hoping to have it done shortly. I've got just over 2 inches done from the 4 inches of the last section of it. I will definitely have some photos of it done to show you from Florida. That's for sure. I also packed in my suitcase one other project to knit on once I'm done that. And if I finish that as well, I have some squares I can make for Babette.

Zeus apparently thinks he's coming with me in my laptop bag. He looked so cozy, I felt bad having to wake him up to actually put my laptop in there.

I have to be up in just about 3 and half hours. Is there a point in going to sleep?

Yay for finished laundry! I feel the same way about getting my eyebrows waxed. I'm not sure about Florida (actually you are probably there now) but its supposed to get up to a lovely 70F here today.

Not much point in sleeping. Hope you guys had a good flight.

Oh, I do hope you made it through! Those early flights are no fun. You'll have to let us know if you stayed up or took a nap. Have an awesome trip!

Aww your Sean is so cute! And Zeus- he looks like just our late Foufi, all curled up like that, she used to hold her head with one paw like that too.
Hope you have a great trip!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful flight. Early mornings are a bear. But so much better than trying to travel in the middle of naptime.

Those last two inches of the Mara shawl are killer! Think about the casting off! :)
