I'm a bit behind my imaginary schedule. I'm thinking that not everything can possibly get done, unless I abandon sleeping now. I've already told the hubbo that he'll get knitted items after Christmas. Luckily, he's OK with that.

First, let's examine the goals.

Some things done. Some ignored. I don't think there's any way I can have the Central Park Hoodie done by Christmas dinner. Oh well.

I think that should keep me plenty busy, along with writing lesson plans, doing progress reports, decorating the house, getting the Christmas cards out, making cookies and ornaments with the girl, and a trillion other things. The TiVo is set up to be loaded with some excellent knitting programs. More coffee will be purchased at the store this weekend. Sleep? Who needs sleep?

P.S. Got home late today after an ice-cream date with the Nephew. Pictures of the Rib & Cable socks tomorrow.

P.P.S. Watched White Christmas tonight. Makes me cry every damn time when the General comes into the room and they salute him. Every time. And I've seen it over 3 dozen times. Yet somehow, I still don't own this movie. I guess I'll just have to buy it for myself this year.

    Re: White Christmas: I totally cry at the scene with the General too. And I love love love when Rosemary sings "Love, you didn't do right by me..." gets stuck in my head for days. :)
