WIP Wednesday

Still plugging on the contract crochet-yes, almost makes me sound like a mobster crocheter.

I have to get the hat done for my aunt and one more hot pad, as well as three dishcloths-easy things, but I don't know if I can squeeze them in. I did take some yarn and a hook to school Monday, did the two sides of the potholder during the recess detention period I had to sit in on and darn if one side had an extra set of stitches. The kicker is that I did these in variegated before and had no trouble, but this is the second set I have tried in the solid color and each time I had an extra set of stitches-just plain weird and I will try the variegated just to see if it's some sort of curse I put on myself.

Not done Christmas shopping-Elena's big stuff is done, but stocking stuffers aren't. Mike is done completely, but everyone else still needs their presents. Wrapping hasn't even started. Baking is a pipe dream right now.

Elena's fever broke last night. She bugged me from 10:30 AM on yesterday to go to school. She went to school today, was in good spirits-has a runny/stuffy nose. One of the kids in her class and who was at her party was sent home with a fever, so it's going around the class. Yes, my nose is stuffy and my ears are clogged-hopefully it'll pass quickly. If you think yesterday was a complete wash with Elena being sick and me having to take off work, think again. I managed to scour both bathrooms, clean the kitchen counters, vacuum, do three loads of laundry and get some other little things done-which was a relief because stuff had been piling up-silver lining.

I went to work at the law office and have the special ed sub tomorrow-
