I did some actual knitting today, in anticipation of the visit. I have almost finished the first one of these for myself. I've apparently already knit a pair for my oldest already, and I have the yarn for a pair for my middle kid. I had a pair and loved them, and wore them out, so a new pair (or two) is necessary. And, they'll match my frog jammies. I'd love to get these all knit over the time I'm there, so I can felt them in my mom's top loading machine. I wonder why I call it my mom's machine when it's my dad who does all the laundry? Anyway. I really like this pattern, it's one of those things where never in a million years could I have come up with something like this, and it's so clever! And you're knitting on big fat needles, so it goes quickly!
So, there's a lot to get done before we go, and I can't do any of it on Sunday (the day of departure) because we're going to church and then leaving from there. And tomorrow, my MOA (that's "made of awesome") friend is taking all three kids for the afternoon and feeding them dinner (HOLY CRAP IT IS REALLY POURING AND WINDY OUT THERE!!!), so DH and I can have a date. Which we really, really need.
But, tonight I'm going to go catch up on Glee.
