At 3:30 tomorrow afternoon, Connor starts his week long Thanksgiving break.
The original plan was for me to leave before noon, drive the three or so hours, and bring him back.
However, the plan has now morphed into Gary driving, Griff (who has a half day) coming along and there may be a dinner stop on the way back.
Can you tell that we are are quite anxious to have him home? I can feel it in my ribs, I just can't wait.
In other news (and I shared this over the phone with Cookie because I knew what her reaction would be) this evening I will be accompanying Griffin on his first college visit.
I know, how did we ever get to this?
It's at a local college and the visit was arranged by our favorite German teacher, so it could be fun.
The letter that was sent to confirm the visit included this paragraph:
Cookie was quite amused by the athletic facilities and more amused by the law offices.
Anyways, I doubt that he will end up staying local or being a German major, but at least it's a start.
If you have been holding your breath waiting to see the sweater I have been knitting, please exhale. It is sort of finished although I need to find buttons and there may be issues with one sleeve plus yarn dyeing drama.
I have put the sweater in time out so I can enjoy the week ahead. Once Connor is back to school (and only for three weeks) and once my sister has been here and gone (taking our mother back to Michigan for a longish visit), I will deal with the sweater.
As sort of I cleansing project, I turned to garter stitch. Lots and lots of garter stitch:
It's nearly done! And it is/will be fabulous.
I'll have photos soon and lots of little updates as the week unfolds.
Also, the knee is doing much, much better. I can straighten it almost as much as the other and my gait is nearly normal. We do run another school Mass this Sunday, that will be a test that I think it can handle. I doubt I would be improving without the great advice our Anne gave me, thanks friend!
