Sock Progress & Daycare

It's coming along slowly but at least i've managed to work on it every day since the beginning of the sock-a-long, even if only for ten minutes. I'm just over six inches into the first sock leg. We're doing some driving today so I should finally get a good bit of uninterrupted knitting time. Wheeeee! :)

Well Brody is doing much better at daycare. He still cries when I drop him off but they say he's happy and playing by nap time. And yesterday he didn't even cry at all after his nap. And he's finally eating there too. He didn't eat lunch or snack for the first three days because he was so upset. Now Houston is a completely different story. He was great the first week but the second week was just terrible. He cried the whole way there and they had to literally pry him off of us on both wednesday and thursday. It was absolutely awful. I was very close to taking him home yesterday morning but I reasoned with myself, and along with the very sweet ladies at Happy Hearts comforting me, decided it would be best for me to go on to work. I cried myself all the way to the office but once I got there I had so much to do that I didn't let myself think about it much. Brett and I are about at the point of drawing straws to see who has to do the drop off. It's absolutely awful and makes me feel terrible for leaving them.
Starting next week i'll only be making the drive to Live Oak on wednesdays so i'm really looking forward to that. That gives me about an hour and a half to two hours of my day back and means i'll be able to pick the boys up a little earlier. Work is going well. The first day things were pretty foggy but by yesterday they were much clearer. It's been a while since i've had to think in terms of vectors and forces. My brain is treating me well though and it's all coming back. I'm probably not finishing jobs as quickly as they would like me to but i'm getting faster on each one. And i'm really enjoying having eight uninterrupted hours of deep thinking ... as strange as that may sound to some of you. Guess i'm still a nerd after all. :)
