The last week of this term

Well, I finally got Generva's kit mailed off today. I hope it makes good time to her and I hope she enjoys it. We my hubby is gone for the next while and I just trying to figure out what to do with myself. I am new here and haven't really made friends yet. I am watching kids from 12 -5:30 so at least my little house elf has kids to play with. And I still haven't found my knitting knitting needles. I want to get knitting and I have no needles. How ironic.
