Ladies, you are doing GREAT! I will try to participate in the in house .. :D
On the son33 front, he's NOT coming back, he's apologized, and we are actually communicating. I found him a small 2 bedroom house to rent, and he & his pal who can be his roommate liked the looks of it online, and pal went last night to look at it., as he's geographically closer to it ATM. I've not heard back yet...
Son33 has some logical plans for immediate/long term work and getting a cyber-security certification to pay his bills and start paying me/us back. I HOPE I can trust him on this...

I took SIL to the hospital for tests. She probably has GERD. She's taken herself off all meds....I'm waiting for the manic episodes to start again. I'm Going to schedule the CT scan I THOUGHT they were doing at the same time.. She wants to wait until Spring to redo the colonoscopy that she didn't do the prep correctly for.. I told her all bets are off IF the CT scan shows something in the gut... :x

Can we do another in-house after this! I am getting so much done.

Way to go Nannika - I finished most of the back yesterday - today it will be finished and a sleeve will be started. Fingers crossed I have enough to finish this sweater. I ordered more yarn 3 weeks ago but it has not arrived. I will go as far as I can then start the quilt.

MCL I think there is something about that age group. Mine moved back in in the spring - I now have 2 housefuls of furniture in the house. Yesterday I tripped in the basement and smashed my knee so it was a good thing we had an in-house because I sat with ice on it all day. My basement looks like one of those hoarders like you see on those tv shows - pathways through it! Oh and also she moved in with her huge dog that DH is allergic to! Guess that is life - I just close my eyes to it and figure at least she had somewhere to go to - but your story is much different. Take your 'me' time and work on your quilt!

Saturday -
1. finish sweater back
2. cast on sleeves / 20 rows

Sunday -
1. finish 1 sleeve and as much of sleeve #2 as possible
