Earlier I complained about how the afternoon seemed so long, then all of a sudden it's past midnight! I did end up finding something to watch on TV - that movie Stepmom, where Susan Sarandon is dying of cancer and Julia Roberts is going to end up being the stepmom to the kids. It was so sad! I think I cried through half of it, and Lydia came in and watched the last twenty minutes or so with me. I usually try not to cry in front of her, but I couldn't help it with this movie ... I probably should have turned it off, since she's been sort of sensitive and worried about people dying lately. I don't know what to tell her when she asks me if I'm going to die, since she freaks out so easily. I don't know whether or not it's bad parenting, but mostly I tell her not to worry and that I'm not going to die ... she's only five, and I don't think it's necessary to force all the cold, hard facts onto her right now. She'll find out all of that stuff soon enough, anyway ...

On a much, much brighter note, I found my crochet hooks! I lost my bag of hooks over a month ago, and it's been driving me crazy not to start any new projects. I've been wanting to make a winter hat for myself, but the big hook that I need was in the missing bag - now I can get started on something! I've been making doilies lately with a hook I borrowed from Leslie, but working on the same type of project week after week can get pretty boring ...

Now I'm off to try to talk Olof into turning off his computer and coming to bed, since I have to get up early for my Swedish class tomorrow.
