Goal Reached!

Well, the Facebook page is going well. Tomorrow will be one week of being up and live, and we have already reached (and starting to surpass) our goal! Hooray! Thank you to my family for sharing my page and getting my name out there.

This weekend I didn't get any knitting in, as we had a family wedding to attend. This was M's first time with a non-grandma babysitter. Eeek! The girl we hired actually used to be baby sat by yours truly. Small world, cyclical babysitter, or something :-) I was anxious, mainly because I'm a first time mom, but also MissM has been a bit futsy about her bedtime. Thankfully, it went smooth and girlfriend played, ate, and slept great for her. Guess I should allow myself a few mom's night outs.

Speaking of, my birthday is tomorrow! MissM and I have a lovely day of nothing planned. We will head up to old work for lunch. See the people, and enjoy the food we used to be sick of. The husband will be working all day, with maybe a break to deposit his paycheck and stop home for a minute. Wednesday is his day off, so we will relax, celebrate and have birthday dinner that day. I still have not decided where I want to go. Olive Garden and Red Lobster were top contenders as they are across town and we rarely make the drive, then someone mentioned my favorite Mexican joint... Decisions, decisions.

Hope everyone is having a good start to their week!

I did not pose these

Of course I did

She's a baby.
Who loves reading.

"What is Mom reading?" you ask
Well that would be The Mammy by Brendan O'Carroll and I'm still working on my classics list, so The Scarlet Letter

Nearly there

More pictures of some ready to sell items. Slowly, slowly I am getting this business set up.

I wish I had more time to knit, but then I also wish I had more time to sleep. Such is life, never quite enough hours in the day. Happy with my time with M, and as much as I wish for more hours, I wouldn't trade my time with her.

Filling out paperwork for her daycare. She'll start in August. Just a trial day the first week. Then two days the second week. Then two or three, then a full week. I'll be on campus basically 9-5 going from being a SAHM to missing my kid 4.5days a week is going to be something.

Meanwhile, ReenieKnits!

Green/Yellow blanket with the slanted eyelets is ready! This week I'll knit up a matching hat or two. I have plenty of this yarn leftover. I also need to sew a "knit by" tag onto this one.

No green yarn left (that I saw). So no matching hat with this blankie. Nice 32inch square. I love the thick border on this pattern. Ready to go!

I recently set up a PayPal account. So now my biggest stepping stone is shipping. Also, not using etsy means I have to promote myself. So, boxes and word of mouth! Hopefully soon I'll be contributing to the family budget again. Or at least paying for the mommy and me classes I want to enroll in...

Until then, small projects.
