As some of you know, I am in a swap called the silly sock swap. I started a pattern a while ago and just wasn't happy with it so it went to the Frog Pond. I have started a new pattern and love the simplicity of it. It creates a great pattern without hurting my brain. Just the type of thing I need at this point in time. Mary is also in this swap so I am helping her with her socks as well. They are turning out quite nice. On the home front, Mary has been offered a job at the IRS and will be starting the beginning of March. HURRAY!!! Kelsie finished her assignment with Daniel the baby and received a 100% on the second day (proving that practice makes perfect) and she has also been receiving many emails from various colleges regarding her great PSAT results. Jared has been making the most of this lousy weather by enjoying some indoor sports with friends like laser tag and a great game of paint ball a couple of weeks ago. The kitties are also staying warm with this typical New England winter by cuddling by the radiator . The boys have taken over the kitty mat that David gave to Sasha. Hope you all stay warm as well and have a great weekend.
