Now, don't laugh, but the highlight of my life lately has been the Neil Diamond concert that Big J took me to. Really! We brought Little G along, but the other two kiddos stayed home, so, it was almost, like, a DATE! oooohh! Yes, very nice, even getting lost after the concert on the way home.

Big J was sitting next to someone he knows at work, and he didn't recognize her out of uniform. LOL! He thought it was funny, and so did I. The concert was really good, some of his old songs, some of the new ones.

Let's see, what else have I been doing...dealing with the kiddos, getting Little Sister ready for school to start, knitting a bit...I'm waiting for school to start. It's not her fault (not totally) but Little Sister is getting on my nerves. She's been a big help, but I want to tell her to go away! I haven't, and I won't, because I'm a grownup. (or so they tell me) Once school begins for her, Little J and i will get back into our normal schedule, and I plan on doing some preschool type stuff with him. It will keep us both busy and entertained.

On the knitting front, the Big Grey Blob is going back into hibernation. I am so sick of knitting on it. So far, the sleeves and shoulder decreases have worked, but I'm going to have to make a change in the decreasing soon, and I'm not sure how to do it...My socks aren't finished yet either - about 5 rows of ribbing to go. I've started a Baby Surprise Jacket for Gloria, using my favorite Noro Kujaku yarn, and despite the tedium of garter stitch, it's coming along okay. I'm worried that I might not have enough yarn :( I'm also doing the Ravelymics over on Ravelry. I have one project that I will be working on during the Olympics, a pi shawl. I've this wonderful fuzzy yarn that I really want to have as a shawl, so...that's what i'm going to do.

Now, time to go feed myself. Later!
