cutting it close, as usual

As is my habit, I am once again cutting it close with the deadline knitting. Mom's birthday is Sunday. B and I drive to VT on Friday. Ideally, the sweater should be done, blocked, and dry before B and I pack up the truck and go. Le sigh, I've completed two of four sets of yoke decreases. I've got at least 5" to go, then the short rows for the neckline and the 5" collar. One saving grace is that the rows are shorter now. But, why do I do this to myself?

Actually, I blame the B. The last couple of weeks, he's been insisting that I lie in bed with him until he falls asleep. Not a bad thing, except I often fall asleep, too. Well, it is bad if I want to get something done after he goes to sleep. Last night I had to let him cry it out so I could call my mom and dad (they go to bed about 9 pm and I couldn't stay with him). He's nearly five and it's so hard to let him cry it out (although, we did do a modified Ferber to get him to bed as an infant).
