On The Road

Travis left today for his first trip in the Peterbilt. He had gone in to Halifax yesterday, basically for nothing. He was there for 8 am, but they were having trouble finding him something to haul. His tarps and binders are in Woodstock, New Brunswick, so they had to be careful with what they gave him for a load. He may have ended up borrowing some from a company truck and will just give them back once he returns. Also most places were short-staffed yesterday because of March break, and Mondays can be a little slow anyways. So he came home last night and left again this morning. He just called and is getting ready to leave Halifax. He has some sort of roller thing he has to take to Edmonton, Alberta. He has to stop in Montreal and pick some other piece of equipment up as well.

Yesterday I took Logan to Moms & Tots skating. He wore real skates this time. I tried getting him to hold onto a chair, but he preferred to hold my hand. He ended up sitting on the chair and getting me to push him around for a little bit. He did better when I let go of his hand, but he kicked up a fit until I took his hand again. There was one poor kid there about 5-years-old who just absolutely screamed the whole time. He hated it, but his mother kept him out there. About half-way through the hour Logan sat on the chair again, and I pushed him around the rink. We were going a pretty good clip, and I noticed his head looked a little sideways. I stopped and took a look, and there he was, sound asleep! I wish I had taken my camera! I tried to wake him up, but he was too tired, so he took a "power nap" for about 20 minutes, sitting on a chair on the sideboards. Once I could get him awake it was pretty much time to leave anyways. Darren went skating last night for an hour. One of his classmates had the rink rented for an hour, and he and his two brothers had a skating party for their friends.

Not much knitting done at all the past few days. I started Logan's Sirdar sweater, but I only have probably not quite half of the back knit. I didn't a stitch yesterday, which is unusual for me. I have to work this afternoon, so I probably won't get much knitting done til this evening. Have a Yarn is having a no tax sale on for the next two weeks. Nova Knitter wanted to know if I wanted to go there with her Friday or Saturday. Of course, I agreed to work all day both days so the owners could take their kids somewhere all night. Every time I get a chance to do something non-kid related it never works out. We are going to try to go there after she gets back from her Florida trip. I've never been to this shop yet, so I am quite excited about it!

Must go fold laundry.

Happy knitting!

Maybe we can all go together? To Have A Yarn I mean.
I can just picture Logan asleep in the chair while you skate him around the rink! That must have been too cute!
Safe trip to Travis. How long will he be away?
