My life feels like it is on hold for the moment. I mean, I have only watched the first episode of the final season of Breaking Bad for crying out loud. What has become of me!?!
A 4.5 year old, a 2.5 year old and a 5 week old are, together, a lot of work, in case you were wondering. And I even have it easy. Like, really easy. Riaz and I are both at home. He takes Aiman and Sofia out for hours nearly everyday and yet every night I feel like I might collapse from exhaustion. Hang on a sec, Mika is crying for no apparent reason ….
OK, I’m back …. with one hand. This girl likes to be held. Which leads me to today’s knitting post … this may shock some of you but it appears to be impossible to knit with one hand. Clearly not much is getting done around these parts.
I am some kind of a fool and am working on a relatively complicated (for me) lace pattern. This item WILL GET DONE before we leave for Australia at the end of November, but it is going to be a race. I’ve been able to work on it some evenings, though which evenings is a bit of a crap shoot since Mika is sometimes very sleepy after 7 and sometimes very fussy after 7. I haven’t figured out yet what set of circumstances leads to which version of Mika I am going to get on any given night so I basically have no control (which is unsurprising with a newborn!)
Anyway … all of this is to say that 1) I am stupid for working on lace in my current situation; 2) please don’t spoil Breaking Bad in the comments — Long Live Heisenberg!; 3) I am so happy The Voice is back on and that Cee Lo has returned — I love him and his tiny hands beyond all sense and reason (this point is kind of a non-sequitor but it is important to be said I think); 4) I’m tired; and 5) my baby is cute.
I love how babies always look like they are ready to box with someone … put up your dukes!
P.S. This photo was obviously totally staged. I could never work on knitting with a wide awake, not crying baby in my lap. She was just sitting there, and my knitting was sitting next to me and I thought … MY BLOG!
Joining up with the Yarn Along … though it is all just a sham since I haven’t Yarned much of anything in the last five weeks!
