Wooo! Today, I managed to add progress bars to the blog, and I didn't blow anything up. I'm a total n00b when it comes to code and html and figuring this crap out, but a couple tries and a few cuss words later, there they are.

This is part of how I hope to better document and keep track of what I have going on knitting wise. For a while, I considered doing a totally separate blog just for my knitting, but I decided against it for a couple reasons.

First of all, it's a miracle all in itself that I manage to update this blog as regularly as I do. If I added a second blog, there's a high chance that one or the other, or maybe both, would eventually get neglected.

More and more, knitting is really becoming a big part of what I do, so it only makes sense to just continue to mix my knitting posts in with all my other babble.

I'm still waiting for the extra yarn to arrive so I can give Seb's poor bear his second ear and be done with him. I know they've shipped the package, I'm just not sure where it is, so I expect to see it hopefully by the weekend.

In the meantime, I thought it would be a great chance to get another pair of socks done, so I'm doing a really quick and easy sock pattern. I'm not sure yet if I like the yarn, but I guess I really can't decide whether or not it looks like total crap until it's done and on a foot.

Today, Sebastian literally bounded out the door, excited to go to school. I thought maybe something was wrong with him. Turns out that this week in his gym class, they're going to be doing exercises with a big parachute, and that was enough motivation to push him happily out the door this morning. Aside from basketball, I don't think that there was ever one activity in any gym class I ever took that made me want to go to school. Ever.

His teacher has started weekly spelling tests. She's provided us with a list of what each set of words are for the week, and they'll be tested on those words as well as bonus words that the kids pick themselves every Friday.

This weeks list is a breeze. For some reason he's only having a problem with two words: get and red. He keeps wanting to spell them as "git" and "rid". He decided on two bonus words: tornado and school. I expected him to know how to spell school simply from seeing the word all the time.

What I did not expect was for him to spell out tornado as easily as he did, but lately he's been on a tornado kick, watching movies and asking questions that I have no clue how to answer, and trying to get his paws on any tornado book or picture he can, so maybe it's just another case of him seeing a word enough to remember. I am trying to figure out how he can sound out or spell words so much easier than he can read them.

He's such a weird kid. He gets that from Phil, I'm sure.
