How is your summer? As I write this, Hazel is exploring and nudging things with her face. What a wonderfully tactile way to explore the world.

I have something to share. Secretly, I think about quitting my program all the time. I'm doing well, and I think I'm on schedule to graduate in about a year, but I seem to lose all motivation when left to myself. I will start the week with great intentions and then slowly lose momentum as I realize how much of a drag it is to transcribe, etc. Recently, I've been thinking about this a lot more, and have been making some poor choices as a result. I'm sort of hoping that I come to my senses before I do something I will regret, but I'm also sort of hoping that my poor choices will pan out.

While I was avoiding responsibility last week, I put some buttons on this little sweater:

The buttons are not evenly spaced, but I think it's okay. I don't think the baby will notice.

Also, I started work on a modified adult version of this. I can't decide if it's garish or not. In the meantime, I'll keep working on it until I make up my mind. Which is pretty much how I feel about my graduate studies as well. Time to work.

I know the feeling! Keep at it, and it will be over soon. I promise!
