The baby blanket blues are over ! The blanket is done , finito , fini , fertig . With the help of the Australian Open Tennis Tournament and a very nice movie on the movie network (In the Land of Women ) it was finally done yesterday afternoon . It only took me about 4 months , but at least it's done . The spiral rib pattern makes it reversible , so there's never a wrong or a right side . The finished measurement are 30" W x 40"L , perfect baby size . No wet lashes with a wet noodle are necessary.
We had the family over for Sunday dinner yesterday . Jessey is changing so much . He's very vocal , he loves to interact , and talks right back at you .The new thing is blowing raspberries , something he's learned courtesy of his dad and which drives Chantal crazy . I was carrying him for a bit and got a complimentary lense cleaning .
Max stopped by this morning with the pooches . He's been working on a project in Trois Rivieres and is away from home for 4 days a week . He had to leave a little later today so he came by for a coffee before leaving . Alaska sometimes thinks he's a lap dog , it's hilarious to see him , Mr Tough Guy .
Thank you all for the words of encouragement on my last post . My biggest concerns about Mike's retirement are as much for the adjustment for him from working to being home as for the financial repercussions . The package makes it easier for sure and really helps us to make the decision . If you wait , it could be layoffs with no monetary incentive , just unemployment . It's pretty much a no brainer . Anyway , it's all good ...
