Happy Halloween!

No. I'm not totally crazy. With Halloween falling on a Sunday this year, the annual downtown trick-or-treat thing is scheduled for this afternoon. So this morning I was gathering up the vampire cape, teeth, face paint, fake blood to send off to school with Noah. The daycare he goes to is AWESOME about taking the kids to do extra things. And since the trick-or-treating starts at 3:30 p.m., this works out really well for me. Beings that I'll still be at work.

As for the appointment for my dad the other day .... The news was actually great! The testing they did showed there are NO neurological problems (before they had possibly thought dementia or the brain aging faster than normal). What he's dealing with is an extremely severe case of depression. But he has been doing better some days. He's even smiled a couple of times.

I really miss the way my dad was, but I'll always love him - no matter what.

I ended up frogging the whole sock I was working on the other day. I just could not pick the stitches up correctly. Stress + two fighting kids + an awful headache = totally frogged sock + sadness. I'm going to try to start the sock again tonight. Maybe even try to do two at a time. We'll see how that goes.

My fingerless gloves have had no progress. I still have one glove without a thumb.

If there is anyone out there interested in a possible holiday get-together for knitters in Colorado, I'd be glad to hear from you. I think this could be a lot of fun. Maybe do a little gift exchange. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
