Well, Lily’s slippers did not stretch so I’ll be making some new ones for her…I’m glad its an easy and quick knit as it better get cast on and finished by April The Finishing Month.  I am almost done with the sleeves of my hoodie now and anticipate being able to start the hood tonight.  We should be receiving Casino Royale from Netflix today so I think I’ll be able to make some headway (no pun intended)…

Took Otto the older lab to the vet today to get his teeth checked.  They informed me that while he has no serious problems other than tartar and the usual doggie scunge, he should have them cleaned and possibly have some growths removed.  My low estimate:  $550.  My high (as in, they must be high!) estimate:  $1000.00.  Do they install a solid gold doggy "grill" for that price?  Holy shit! 

Another big change:  Rubydooby was admitted to U of O and will be a Duck!  The bad news is that tuition is insane.  The good news is that she was awarded a scholarship!  We are very proud of her.  At the same time, though, I have realized that Doug and I met while at Cal and we were 19!  It’s scary to think that she is almost as old as we were when we fell in love and decided to spend the rest of our lives together and all that that entails.  You know, kids, houses, doggy dental work…..

    I hope some feet come along that fit into those slippers — they are adorable. Or maybe they should just be decoration. It works.

    Oy. My eldest will be 22 next month. I am truly astounded that I could have a child that age, capable of doing all the things that I was doing at that age…

    Congratulations to Ruby! That is so exciting. And yes, it must be a bit overwhelming for you at the same time.

    These slippers are SOOO lovely! I agree with Vicki’s comment above…I could easily just set them someplace as decoration. You are amazing!

    I’ll 3rd the suggestion that you use the too-small slippers as art! They are just adorable.

    Major congrats to Ruby on her scholarship and acceptance! But I can understand how scary that must be for Mom and Dad! Hopefully the choices she makes will be as good as the ones her parents made. You’ve been such an example.

    Congrats to Ruby. Will she be living at home or living at school? Life will change for sure my friend!

    Gosh, I love the slippers, I can’t say it enough. I wonder if I could actually knit them.. I’ll have to read back to see if I can find the pattern, I know you listed it. Maybe I can make my mom knit them! Love your color choices and everything.
