My husband just left for Colorado and it was so much harder to say good-bye now that there's 3 of us. It's his first business trip since Julian was born and I'm hoping it's the last (though I know it won't be).
He left his previous job because they had him travelling back and forth from Montreal to Indiannapoils every week for 6 months straight starting the week after we got married and moved in together. That really sucked! Anyway, I absolutely hate it when he travels. I know airplanes are safer than cars but it still makes me so nervous.
I'm sure our little Jujube has no clue that there will be no daddy all week, but he had a really rough night (he just about drove us bonkers crying for two hours solid with no apparant reason) and though he did get some sleep afterall (thank goodness) he cried all morning while daddy was getting ready to leave. Maybe he could feel our apprehension and nervousness and was reacting to that? He's finally asleep now and hopefully it'll be a nice long nap so mommy can get back to her Olympic knitting.
Incidently, I actually started to knit when he travelled to Indiannapolis. Knitting is so relaxing to me and requires just enough concentration to keep my mind off my nerves and it is such a lovely (and productive way) to pass the time. So if Julian cooperates this week, I'm pretty confident that I can finish my Olympic knitting in time.
Speaking of which, I finished the second front yesterday and cheated on my project a bit to finish the back of bristow (I needed the needle ;0) As planned, I started the collar next and I think it's going to be a long, long time before it's done. It's 242 stitches wide for the love of yarn! The good thing is that it's a different yarn so it actually feels like a new project. It is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran and I love it. It is so soft! I'd love to make a whole sweater out of this stuff sometime, it's the best yarn I've had the chance to knit with (so far)!
