|I need a magnet for that other GA university, too. The 6-year old sticker is looking shabby!|
What’s really on my mind and heart?
Still processing our 2-day orientation and the impending departure of my 4th child for college. Always before, there were lots of little distractions at home to keep me from mourning too much when a child left, though I did mourn. And I still do miss them terribly, but I think this departure is going to be hard. Two kids at our dinner table is too quiet.
What am I thankful for?
I'm very thankful for being on the mend. I was still pretty tired and draggy on Sunday, but noticeably better yesterday. The horrific sore throat seems to be gone. YAY!
What’s going on in school?
I'm ashamed to say that I never got a t-shirt for that "other university". I got this one yesterday because I saw another mom wearing it and it was cute. Ladies cut, scoop neck. I'd wear one from UGA if I had one. ;-)
No idea. More chicken broth.
What’s on the needles?
My Clapo-ktus grew quite a bit during orientation. (I was the only one knitting, as far as I could see. I don't know how people can sit there and do nothing!) It's a little slow with all the purling and ktbl (knitting through the back loop), and every other row is longer than the last, but when I get to the halfway point where I start decreasing and dropping the purl stitches, it will get faster and more fun. Normally, knitters hate dropping stitches and watching that row run (like pantyhose), but that's the point in this shawl, and it will be awesome!

What am I reading?
May the Road Rise Up to Meet You on Overdrive. Kristin Lavransdatter: The Wife on paper. Both very different books, but I'm enjoying both of them. When I go to bed, where I read Kristin, I think that I'd rather listen to the other, but I find that I'm perfectly happy to read Kristin well past my bedtime!
We're praying novena after novena for our school building campaign. We're not getting as much help from the internet as we need, and time keeps marching us closer to the deadline.
What’s on my ipod?/

What projects are happening at home?
So much clutter. And school books to get rid of. Maybe, just maybe, I'll find enough energy to focus on some of those things this week.
