Socks and Frustration

Knitting-wise I've finished a pair of socks (Knitterly Things Vesper Sock yarn, colorway "Hellfire")

and started another (Knitterly Things Vesper Sock yarn, Wee Skeins kit w/ Pavement, Stormy, Lumber Jack, and Twitterpated -- I wanted something manly.)

I'm cranky and frustrated. Last year we went through this thing with Older Son where he wouldn't register for classes. We went through all this aggravation w/ the insurance company threatening to cancel his health insurance and having to rush him out there to register at the last minute, it was a nightmare! And he did it not once, but twice! So I kept after him all this term. Register, I said. Remember to register before the end of the term. And he told me he did. Over and over and over he swore to me that he did. But I'm trying to pay his bill and there's no bill. Did you register? Yes. Well guess what? Finally it comes out that he's not registered. He still insists that he registered. I don't know what the problem is. All the kid has to do is register -- that's it!! Now he has to rush out there tomorrow (classes start and registration ends on Wednesday) and talk to his advisor and try to get things worked out. Arrrgghhh!!!
