I'm drowing in life...

It has been a while since I posted anything. There is so much going on I feel like I almost can't cope. I am afraid to reveal all of the details, since the guilty parties would complain that I blabbed to the whole world (literally). The details I can blab are, my son who is in Boston U Engineering School has fallen behind. He should be graduating this year and is short credits. He has to make up some of the classes he did crap on in prior years. Those of you who have kids in college, private college at that, know how expensive it is. So we decided that if you need to make up these classes, you should come home, make them up locally (much less $) and then go back and finish. Great, so now he is home. Creating a mess everywhere, tons of laundry, lots of laughs! Also, my husband has decided that we need to revamp the house, and he is right. But that means more mess every where. My grand daughter is 2 and stays with me while my daughter goes to work and her middle name is trouble and mess. So crocheting is a guilty pleasure that I have to fit in when I get a few moments to myself. I have a ripple afghan, a granny square pillow for my grand daughter, a baby it's cold outside sweater, a scarf to go with the sweater, a poncho, a shawl, a baby layette (commissioned), all works in progress. This is my first time working on multiple projects at the same time and I find it quite a challenge. I normally work on one thing till its totally finished before I start on another. But I am trying this because I heard from other crocheters that this is how they keep the work flowing. Personally, I think it will stress me out, but I am going to give it a real try. I feel like it will take a year or more before I am working on next years birthday and holiday gifts in this year, but that is my goal. Thanks for visiting. Pictures of works in progress to follow. I am putting it on my to-do list!
