The littlest had a dentist appointment this afternoon that has been wreaking havoc on my nerves. Needless to say, it went horribly. This time she was sedated with an purple oral concoction that was hard to swallow and then gassed. I should be proud of the spunk that this kid has, but it is also heart-wrenching since another appointment had to be scheduled since she fought tooth and nail to get out of the chair the entire time while screaming murderously. This little ninja was heavily drugged, and yet it took two grown men to pin her in the chair. I am impressed. I elected to remain in the reception area and listen to the blood-curdling screams with the terrified little gaffers that were next in line. Her father is much better in these scenarios than I am. When we got home she gobbled up three chicken strips and a mountain of buttered noodles, and she was fine again. I, on the other hand, am dreading the next visit three months from now like the plague.

To calm myself, I decided, completely on a whim, to drop in at my local library for its twice-monthly knitting group. There were only three of us, and I was able to knit a few inches on Pepto Sock #2 while I sipped on some lemon decaf tea. It was lovely.

I do have some legwarmers to show off. I whipped these up for El as she is too cool for snowpants at the dear sweet age of 11. She didn't mind these at all. In fact, I think she was a little excited to wear them. I used some leftover Bernat Softee Chunky acrylic from the Buttony. (They even fit my legs quite nicely - this is very important as the lifespan of all clothing items are very short for a cool pre-adolescent female.)

I'm off to bed. I am exhausted. G'night!


PS. I tried out that desk calendar from the link in the last post, and woo-hoo! Ingenius!
