I should be doing anything BUT blogging right now.

I should be either 1. lanolizing Jack's soaker 2. cleaning the living room 3. doing my pushups or 4.making a menu/grocery list. But here I sit. It's been a rough morning and it's only 9:30.

I'm not even sure what I want to blog about. I had something to say when I sat down. I've been super tired this week. I'm so ready for spring and to be able to go outside for some sunshine and fresh air. A friend of mine asked me to knit a soaker for her baby boy that's arriving very soon, so I did that this week. I don't have a pattern I follow, so I winged it. Well, I should have used a pattern. I did the dang thing 3 times (in two days) before I was happy with it. So I stayed up much later than I should have. But it's done now and I am going to send it off tomorrow or Monday depending on when it is dry.

I have some yarn to dye up, but first I have to unwind the entire thing. I am not sure if I am brave enough to try that when I have both girls. It's going to be a skirty for Ellie so it's a lot of yarn. I'm not really sure how much I need, so I'm just going to dye 8 ounces. I can always use the left over yarn for something else. Maybe I'll get started unwinding this afternoon. Hmm, I wonder if I could teach Mary to do it:). We also have to go get cat food and bird seed today. We just hung a bird feeder. Mary loves to watch the birds.

I can't think of anything else to say. ugh. I just want to fall asleep. But Ellie's morning naps only last 15 minutes and it's already been 10. I've got to get some rest this weekend. Of course I won't, but it sounds nice. I feel like I'm moving in slow motion.

Oh, Mary liked her Valentine guy. Not sure if Ellie liked hers. They were super fun to make. I'm planning on using the same pattern with different ears and longer limbs to make Easter bunnies for them. I'm glad I took this pic of Mary with hers last week. I trimmed her hair this week and I'm sure it will be a while before it is this long again.

Yup. 9:47 and Ellie's up.

Mary's hair is long in this pic! Amelia is letting hers grow. It is becoming a pain. I wish she would let me trim her bangs.
I am tired too.
I am glad it is Friday. I should be doing the exercise too. I kind of gave up hope this week. The weather is too bleak, and it effects my energy.
