No, I'm not sleeegf...

Huh? What? I'm up, I'm up. Sorry about the recent lack of posts, but this week has been fairly hectic, and there has been little or no blog-worthy knitting progress to report.

Monday evening I had my choir practice to attend, which was fun as always, but it ends rather late. I think I managed to knit my quota on my daughter's sweater during the day, though. Tuesday Philippe had to be at the office at seven o'clock in the morning, so I got to take Emilie to daycare. I picked her up a scant three hours later, though, because she had her annual doctor's appointment. Everything normal, taller than average for her age (duh), see you next year. I actually bumped into a friend I used to work with at McDonald's about a zillion years ago, and she's got four kids now! I couldn't believe it. FOUR KIDS!!!! I always said I wanted three, but now I'm not so sure anymore. We'll put off any decisions for the time being, shall we?

But I digress! Since the appointment ended around lunch time, we headed off to McDonald's for a quick lunch (Aaack! ;) That was supposed to be a secret). I try not to take her to fast food places, but come on. Seeing Karine at the doctors' office reminded me of that dear old Mickey Dee, and it's right next door, for Pete's sake! Then we went home and played until Emilie's nap time. I was really excited, because she'd said she wanted to get her ears pierced that afternoon (I've always told her that we'd go when she'd decide), but when she woke up, she was sort of cranky and just wanted to stay home. No worries, we did the next best thing: We made cupcakes! Lovely pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese icing and sprinkles (I should have taken a picture).

I just love baking with my daughter. It's a good rainy-day activity (this picture was taken a few months ago, shortly after Maxime was born, hence the roundness of moi). Of course, the downside to baking is that there are cupcakes in the house, just beckoning, but I think I may have found the perfect solution. We brought 8 cupcakes to daycare the next day! So all her little friends were happy, and I wasn't obligated to snarf down a cupcake an hour on Wednesday. Tuesday evening Philippe's mother came to babysit, because we went out to dinner for my Mom's birthday.

Whew! What did we do Wednesday? Well, Philippe had to drive to Ottawa, so I had to take Emilie to daycare again (this time, Oh Joy, in the two-door crap Ford that wouldn't have made it to Ottawa). Maxime and I stayed home until around two in the afternoon, when I had an appointment. Then it was a quick visit to my Mom's (my grandmother is visiting, and she'd never seen Maxime yet), then back to pick up Emilie, make dinner, and wait and pray for Philippe to arrive (which he did, at six thirty).

Needless to say, there hasn't been much knitting done around here. I think today I'm going to take it easy (after a quick trip to Sears to pick up a baby jumper that was enabled by Jennifer). I've also decided to set my sock aside (boooooo!!!) and get started on the Tulip baby cardigan for my friend. Yup, I sure will. Tomorrow :)

I hope Maxime likes the jumper!
