I don’t post nearly enough about life, the kids, knitting etc. That’s because I’ve been lazy, lazy, lazy. Since getting my IPad and IPhone I so rarely actually turn the computer on. Bad Shannon. So bare bones update: I’m seeing a therapist and taking Prozac for my depression and it’s helping me so much that I feel almost like a different person. I’ve still got a ways to go but I’ll get there. Connor just turned One a few weeks ago, which boggles my mind – it seems like just yesterday that I was giving birth (way to early) to the little bugger. He’s adorable as ever and so much fun. Jacob is finishing first grade today. Time flies. I swear I’m going to turn around one day and he’s going to be leaving for college. My quest right now is to spend more time on getting healthier – going to the YMCA and losing weight and doing the things that I love that I’ve let go in my depression.
Right now I’m on my 3rd attempt at a Baby Surprise Sweater (Thank you for having a daughter Jimi D.) after the first two failed spectacularly. The first one, I didn’t like the color so I changed it. The second one I was about 1/2 way done with when I realized that I had missed an important increase back at row 9. ARGH!!! It was supposed to be for Jake’s 1st grade teacher who is pregnant right now and I was hoping to give it to her today. So much for that. So now I’m making this one for Jimi’s newborn daughter with a yarn that is a gorgeous pink (I’m not positive it’s just right for the pattern, but the color is perfect, so I’m willing to give it a shot.) I guess I’ll know pretty quickly if it works or not. Wish me luck. Will update with pictures periodically.
