Which is to say, the girls put the ornaments on, and we’ve not gotten around to adjusting the spacing on them. It looks passably fine from where I’m sitting, and I told her that I was impressed with her efforts.

Really, she’s been a good kiddo today, just when I needed her to be. Z had an event that he had to attend for a chunk of the afternoon, which means me and the kiddos doing our thing. Everyone got fed, Littler got her nap, and nobody and/or nothing was on fire when Z got home.  Which yanno, all sorts of good, ’cause I’m still rocking this being sick thing. This too shall pass, but I’m going to feel like a whiny baby until it does. *shakes tiny fist tiredly*

Past that, I’ve just been gaming my little heart out. My progress on Pokémon Moon continues; I’ve just picked up the Z-Crystals for Electricity and Steel. I ended up slowing the crap out of my progress the last few days because I was grinding levels and friendship because I was starting to hit areas were I was nearly out-levelled (and the friendship grinding was to take Pichu to Aololan Raichu, meow!). Now I’m just faffing around trying to get a Beldum to get into a damned Pokéball, the elusive bastid that it is. Wish me luck, okay? Or that, at least, complaining to my corner of the Internet forces it to comply. *whistles*

And then there’s the usual poking at other games beyond that ’cause I can’t do one thing at a time. Obviously. And all of it is a distraction from my knitting, as I’m not completely convinced that the effort I’ve put into my first sock is going to be wearable on my fatty calves. I’m thinking I might pull it off and redo it all a needle size up. It would probably be prudent to do *sighs* more gauge squares and see.

Right, I’m off.
