Did I Get Everything Done?

Hannah has to be at Freshman Orientation at 8:30 this morning. Parents are invited to stay, but I have to split (I am a child of the Sixties) to get to class. She, and her 400+ classmates, will be dismissed at noon. My class goes (schedule-wise) until 12:05. So I am going to have to cut the thing short to get back, find a parking place, and pick her up. I get there, find said space, find her, find she wants to have a friend come over for the afternoon (Briton is already doing the same), find that she and friend want Chick-fil-A. Wait for a while in the CFA drive-through line, get food for all, come home, have time --- barely --- to change before Briton's friend arrives.

I don't remember actually being any of those places, or actually engaging in any meaningful activities while there. Mostly, I remember driving, and getting in and out of the car. I remember moving a lot, but I don't know if I've gotten everything done today that I needed to get done today. Ever get like that?

This is my baby and her best friend of I-don't-know-how-long. Look out for the Class of 2010!

In other news, I have looked high and low for this pattern book:

I bought the yarn for the cover sweater, having been told that the pattern books would be in "shortly." That was months ago, and I cannot find a copy of this book anywhere. Why doesn't Patons sell direct?

Anyway, if anyone out there can find this, and wouldn't mind picking up a copy for me, please let me know. I'd be happy to reimburse all your costs, because I really would like to make this.

I'll keep an eye out for it! I just found out one of our major yarn stores in the area is closing (she's retiring), so clearly a trip there is in order and since it's a ways from me, I have to go to all the yarn stores in between. Or they might get jealous.

Class of 2010? It sounds so very far away but it sure isn't.

Your day sounds like my life! :-) I guess it doesn't get any better as the kids age. Well, at least I won't have to strap them into car seats.

Might I just say that I am very impressed that you dropped of your daughter for freshman orientation? The incoming students at the community college I work at could use some similar boosts--so many parents come in and do all the talking!
