Project procrastination- aka- I should be working on my paper right now

I finished the first hand warmer for the Skacel open pattern audition, and emailed my photos this morning.  I'm really excited about this one and I hope that it works out because I'd love to have a published pattern, and some extra cash in my pocket!  I cast on the second one last night, and I'll be knitting that one using the magic loop, because although it was nice to use the Kollage square double pointed needles, I just prefer to use circulars.

Dante has his appointment with the psychiatrist today to be re-evaluated.  We spoke with his clinician last week and have formed a plan to have him off his medication as soon as possible.  They will be teaching him some coping skills and tips to help him manage his attention and impulsiveness without the medication.  They will also be keeping an eye on the school to be sure that they are adhering to Dante's IEP, as every time we turn around, I find out that they aren't doing something that they are supposed to do, like have him seated in the front row.

I also found out about an hour ago that Dante's track meet was moved up to today so after his appointment I have to drop him off at the meet at Mt. Hope.  I've got his uniform in the laundry now, and I had to go through several bags of old laundry that were stuffed in my closet in garbage bags that we forgot all about.  My allergies are not happy right now, but I did find my missing mates to two pairs of socks, including the pair that my buddy Rain knit for me, and my Baudelaire socks that I knit years ago.  Sadly, they fell victim to some moths and have some holes.  The Baudelaire can be repaired, but the other pair has holes all over the foot and let so I have to rip them and make another pair.  So sad.

I have a paper to revise, and laundry to fold from last week.  Then I have to start working on my class work for next week because I'm quickly headed towards finals.  I have a brand new-to-me nephew who Aaron got to meet yesterday, and he has a little boy who is a preemie.  He doesn't have anything that fits so I'm going to stop into the shop and pick up some organic cotton, and knit something from the Sirdar book designed for little babies just for my new little family member.  Lots of stuff to do, not nearly enough time to do it in.
