Soccer Camp and Mittens

Soccer camp started yesterday and it's going just brilliantly. Noah and Malachi are naturals (thanks to some good genes) and are absolutely loving it! We had some trouble getting Malachi psyched up for it tonight because he needed a nap (me too! I was up for 26 and a half hours straight and then only got to sleep 9 hours) but it only took a small bit of motivational speaking (involving me saying "Fine you can sit in the car while Noah plays" to get him back in the game, so to speak. The weather has been beautiful and just perfect for the kids to play in. Not too hot and not too humid. So far only one whiny kid and he didn't come back today so my thoughts are he won't be playing this year. I took a few pictures yesterday of the kids and a couple of videos too. I'll post those tomorrow when I can link up with faster Internet at the university. Until then, ta ta for now.

I've not had a lot to talk about lately so that's why I haven't posted. My focus has been on losing weight, working, school, and knitting (of course). I haven't had time to do a lot of spinning but it's coming back on the priority list as I'm hearing the siren song of my wheels and spindles grow stronger each day. Maybe just one more mitten pair before I fall prey. Bad news: I hurt my back at work last week. Good news: it was all muscular with no disc involvement and ibuprofen and muscle relaxers have cured it (thank God! I was afraid I'd have to give in and get a cortisone shot and some Vicodin). I've gotten more work done on the book too. Mostly research but hey, that's more important than some folks like to think.
