Not much knitting going on

Been ultra busy with work lately, so my knitting has slowed to a snail like pace, especially since all I really am able to focus on when I do have time to knit is really simple things. I finished a Gap-tastic cowl a few weeks ago, no pictures yet, a pair of knotty gloves, also picture-less, and 2 pairs of plain toe up socks. These are my on-the-go socks and are much needed since many pairs sprouted holes this very cold winter. I will repair some of them, but right now it is faster to knit new ones.

 The reason I've been working like a crazy person and picking up tons of hours is I am off to Japan next Friday. I'm looking forward to the trip...the flying not so much. So in about 2 weeks there will be lots of pictures. In the mean time I still have to extricate my luggage from the storage room in the basement, pack, call credit card companies, bank, cell phone company, and a whole slue of other small errands that need to get wrapped up in the next 5 days.

I also just found out last Tuesday that we will be going to Italy to visit Dan's family at the end of May for 10 days. Tickets were bought today and I have to figure out who is going to house sit for the fur kids while we're gone. Its way easier than boarding everyone or shipping everyone off to different houses; we have too many pets for one person to take everyone. I will be calling on a few friends and hopefully that will all work itself out. One of my dogs gets separation anxiety when I'm gone overnight, so both of us being gone for 10 days will be rough on her.
I'm off to finish my laundry and relax for the rest of the night. Maybe I'll work on another sock.
