All my ailments seem to be healing, and there have been no more regurgitation incidents (aside from the incidental spit-ups). I decided to hire my babysitters as occasional errand girls as well, which in less than two hours wiped 5 things off my to-do list. T. is back in town and we're getting our work done. And have I mentioned the weather is gorgeous?

I have, though, lost a knitting needle - a long metal #1 DPN - and so am stymied for sock knitting at the moment. Sock knitting is one of those things I can fit into the corners of my life and get the satisfaction of seeing something material concretely produced. So instead I've been folding origami birds for another mobile for V.

I promise, I promise, pictures forthcoming - once I finish writing an essay due tonight.

Argh. I have a size five straight, and someone else I know has a size 7 bamboo straight. We are convinced that they are on a beach somewhere making mishapen sweaters.

Yeah for doing better. I never thought to hire a babysitter for errands. You think they'd fold and put my laundry away?

V will find the needle about the time she starts crawling.
