Happy Valentine's Day

Well, today is Valentine's Day. I figured Sebastian would be psyched today over that, knowing that Valentines and a disgusting amount of junk food is likely waiting for him at school today, but no. Why? Because today is the 100th day of school, also known as the much celebrated 100th day. Apparently, this is much more important to him. I might have to punish him by eating all of his chocolate.

How that can possibly trump chocolate and Valentines is beyond me. Weird kid.

We are also in the process of digging ourselves out of a weekend of snow. Fortunately, it's been melting pretty fast since yesterday which is a really good thing since I went to shovel the walk, took one look and said screw that and came back inside.

We really haven't had that much snow this year, but even Sebastian seems to be tired of the whole white crap falling out of the sky thing and keeps asking when summer is coming. Can't say I blame him, I hate the stuff. We knew the storm was coming so we just stocked ourselves up so we didn't have to go out all weekend for anything. Definitely wasn't a weekend to be out and about.

Sebastian had a 90 minute delay yesterday which was great for him but it really screwed up my whole routine. I felt like I was ten steps behind all day yesterday.

I spent more time this weekend watching the Olympics than I expected to. Gave me some good knitting time for one, and it was kind of like watching some epic drama unfold. Not sure what it is with the Olympics, but every four years you can pretty much count on one thing...some figure skater is gonna cry over something.

Managed to get a bit done on the Cozy. I think the pattern is really pretty, but I still don't like the color of yarn, and I don't think it will change by the time I'm done. Don't get me wrong, the color itself is terrific, but not what I had in mind for this pattern at all. It's definitely something I would have liked to have done with a brighter color, like a red or a pastel, and maybe someday, if I ever think about it, I will do another one, but at the rate I'm going it will be Christmas before this one is done so I'm not going to hold my breath on a second.

Tomorrow I'll try to remember to have my cat George model what's done so far, and get a picture of it...since I finally remembered to charge the battery on my camera over the weekend.

Still not smoking. Yah, I don't really believe it myself. It's been over three weeks now, and I still have urges to smoke from time to time. More than I expected, but I don't have a problem getting through it. I'm doubting that it really ever goes away. Every day that goes by though, means another $6 saved that could potentially be spent on yarn instead, and that's just further encouragement!

Lots to do today, so I'm outta here.
