Trip Report Tuesday #3-- Almost!

As Trip Report Tuesday falls upon us again, I have a still-clean apartment and half of a sock to go. I don't feel bad about this because I knit valiantly all week and I'm making progress. The sock project continues on to next week, which should be easier because of Thanksgiving break.

This week's projects are as follows:
1) Purchase a Christmas present for Andy's brother-in-law, whose name I drew in our gift exchange. This is kind of tricky because I know very little about him, but we'll see how I do.


3) Come up with wittier ways to link to Scott Adams.

Aaand I'm not going to be much more ambitious than that, at the moment. Anybody out there have a finished project? Anybody out there want one? You know what to do!

Believe it or not, every one of Emily's belongings is out of the pink bedroom. The bookshelf is bare, the wardrobe and closet are empty. My project tonight is to set up the air mattress and twin mattress on the floor, to make a welcoming place for two more daughters. Further projects include the cooking of copious amounts of food and the composition of a letter to all my friends and family detailing our happy journey through this year. These projects are not to be confused with my true purpose, which is to be happy and at peace, appreciating the wonderful world and the dear people in it. And of course I include a certain short, angry person among the very dearest.
