Ugh. I’m terrible. From now on, I’m lowering expectations of myself. So much has happened since my last update. I’ll try and recap.
1) knitting, lots of knitting
3) spring break to London and Paris!!! More later.
5) planning life.
Ok, so SEE? I can make a post and start here! And, in the spirit of keeping it doable, here’s some pics. Bu I won’t be able to tell you all of what’s awesome about them, low expectations and all…
As to the trip. Swoooooon. Other than the crippling anxiety from both children. One has some generalized, post pandemic, and the other has some with his ADHD. They look different.
So, like, Girl child would panic when we weren’t sure which line to take where in London (part of the fun of traveling) or we didn’t know enough French yet (yes we did, and barely needed it in Paris), or how we didn’t have the right line memorized from Heathrow to the Airbnb when we arrived (again, traveling🤷♀️). The boy child would constantly be asking what was next, how much time we had, as soon as we started something he’d already be planning ahead. My husband and I are more laid back travelers. Me especially, because my mother always over planned everything and trips were no fun with that kind of anxiety leading the way. So, the kids anxietied, and we acknowledged but held strong to not scheduling everything. Eventually they settled a bit. They had to share a bed (horror of horrors) and we never stopped hearing the fights because of that. But otherwise, we had a blast! No really, we really did😂.
I’ll do pics later, but for now, here’s one to whet your whistle.
Ok, hooray! I caught up! Well, kinda. One last knitting pic. Here’s my current obsession. The Velvet Mirror cowl. First time using mohair, and first time doubling it! So great!
See y’all soon, next post will be pics from trip!
