Updating — family and goals

Filed under: Uncategorized — K @ 6:03 pm

Yeah…. so it’s been a while, huh?  I’ve had a fair amount going on in my life, so here’s the check-in post since last we chatted.

Drew (the “baby”) turned 1 on Saturday — can you believe it?!?  My little failure-to-thrive child is closing in fast on 30 lbs (we’ll get the exact at his 1 year check-up on Friday).  He is healthy, eating well, learning new things, and learning to stand (about 5 seconds is his record so far, but he always makes the choice to sit down — it doesn’t take him by surprise as he falls!)  He also had his check-in with his urologist today, and — drum roll, please! — he is showing improvement!  His doctor wants to see him in another year, but that’s a long way off!

Catie is amusing me more every day — she has always had an active imagination, but lately, it’s been wild!  I’d worry about Multiple Personality Disorder, if she didn’t make the conscious decision to switch personas.  She has about 8 different ones right now, and they each have favorite outfits, colors, and meals.  One, she explained to me, is a 10-year-old Katie.  No, that’s not a typo.  That Katie spells her name with a “K”.  She also, I swear, has neater handwriting.  I really don’t understand it, but I think it’s delightful and hilarious.

Noah has started Kindergarten through k12 — it’s an amazing program, and I am thrilled to be a participant.  If you haven’t heard of this, it’s a state-funded home-school program.  I love the curriculum, and I love helping Noah learn.  If you’ve ever thought of home-schooling, I encourage you to check it out.  And if you want more information for your consideration, or simply out of curiosity, please feel free to leave a comment here, and I’ll respond to you.  (If you don’t want your comment made public, say so in the comment, and I won’t approve it for publishing.)

I am knitting again, and doing other crafts, too.  I’ll try to remember to hop on here more often and share some of my projects!  A friend’s blog features a “What I Made Wednesday”, so I’m going to try to share something each week.  I am also going to start updating my knitmeter again, so I can track my mileage.  I have a goal to knit a half-marathon (13.1 miles) this year — anyone with me?



  1. WOW – a 1/2 Marathon….sounds ambitious, but fun! PS – every time you mention your blender on FB, I want a smoothie…you need to make a post about it and show us pictures (although, that might not help my cravings!)

  2. Come on over, Molly! I would make you a smoothie anytime, with whatever you want in it! 🙂
