So much to say, so much to say, so much to say, so much to say

A post with multiple titles, the first of which is up above.

Phew! It's been over a week since my last post - sorry about that! Can't believe so much time has passed! In my defense, I've been pretty busy lately. I've been working, believe it or not (given that I teach and it's summer). I've been helping to write a new social studies curriculum for third grade for the district. I know, fascinating, right? For me it's been pretty interesting to see what goes into that, but I won't bore you with the details. I think it's enough to say that I've spent five of the last ten days staring at a computer screen for hours.

I bought myself some presents from Amazon. They took forever, but they are finally here. I've made myself a deal though, no new projects until I finish at least two of the projects I have going right now. So temporarily I'm just drooling over these. I've pawed through them all quite a few times already, but haven't started anything just yet.



Little feet little hands little feet little hands little baby



Kelly had the babies! She's the one with twins, who got the Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino blankies. Well, one of those blankies is technically still in my possession, but she'll get it soon. Maybe the babies are small enough to share for a little while? I'll see her soon, so the jealous baby will get his or hers soon enough (I'm not sure which baby got which blanket color combo). Carter Joseph, Grace Kelly, and mom, dad, and the dog are all doing great. Although the dog's probably looking for some extra love. Can't wait to meet the little ones!

I find sometimes it's easy to be myself; sometimes I find it's better to be somebody else



Not that I'm being somebody else these days, but just that sometimes I'm happy just being me, and other times it's hard thinking about the things I want in life and the things I don't yet have in my sights. I spent much of the weekend in New York at a wedding. After that, I went to the Jersey Shore to celebrate the fourth with my brother and his fiance. We had a blast together, but every so often it just nags at me that all of these people are just beginning their lives together, and that I'm not quite there yet. Don't worry about me though, it's not really on the forefront of my mind all of the time. I wasn't even really going to mention it, but when I listened to this song again, I couldn't skip over this part of it.

Talk about the weather



On to brighter news. Hope you're all enjoying the sunshiney weather today! Looks like we're in for a few pool/beach days this weekend and into next week.

Did you ever see a song fit so perfectly with a post like this?

I'm coveting your "Socks Soar..." book... I'm going to amazon right now for some exploration. :-)

p.s. Thanks! I keep hearing great things about Knitsmiths but it is a hike from here, you're right. I'll try out Harvard Sq & Arlington first. :-)
