Short and Sweet

I'm afraid I don't have much time to type today, as I'm due to go see IRON MAN in a few minutes. (That's the official household spelling.) But I wanted to thank Jocelyn for her comment on my sort-of-contest and to say.
  1. There are ants in the dishes. I'm giving it a couple more days. After all, the man graduates from college officially the day after tomorrow. And ant smooshing makes me feel better.
  2. We discussed adopting older kids to solve this problem - premade chore-doers - but then I remembered (a) we can't afford it, (b) we're not really mature enough for that, and (c) we're both going back to grad school this year. If this idea works though, I'll owe Jocelyn something handmade again in 10 years.
  3. Therapy may also be a viable solution, but see 2(a) and 2(c) above.*
*Can you tell I was a lawyer?

If you still have suggestions, comment away! I do have to say, that I'd rather have quiet lurkers (or no readers, but I'm trying to pretend that's not it) than some of Laurie Perry's crazy fans. (See her May 6, 2008 entry. Dude!)

Have a good rest of the week, and maybe I'll be able to shoot some FOs or WIPs this Saturday.

I'm going to hold you to that hand-knit item, see if I don't! (And really, since when did grad school stop one from having kids?)(says the woman who, insanely and on purpose, got pregnant with her first while writing her dissertation)(best to ignore my advice, methinks). I hope the ants do the trick -- they're much cheaper than kids *or* therapy!
