I want to. I really do. I miss my blog. I miss your blog. I really want to get back to them. It’s just so hard!
Life if going about at a whirlwind pace, but I think it’s more my noticing than anything changing. Whenever I think, “I should post on my blog,” I find I have nothing to say!
I guess I can give a general update of the things going on around here, at least…
Everyone is doing well. Babies have been born (my brother in law and his wife were blessed with their first grandchild exactly one year from the day we were blessed with ours! They have a granddaughter, too), theater has happened, nasty job situations (for TheQueenofHearts) have resolved…
TheMadHatter and the TheQueenofHearts are going to a formal, Masquerade Sweet Sixteen party for a friend (I can’t believe how much we’re spending so they can go to a birthday party! Alas, homeschooled girls ~ this is their “prom” experience!)
School is s l u g g i s h !!! We will be working in the summer months. *sigh* I really look forward to not worrying about it in the summer. Just doesn’t always work out. Oh, well. I am beginning lesson plans for next year. Fun, fun, fun!
TheMadHatter has a summer job which she will begin next week. She is going to be a nanny for a friend for the summer. It will be 3 days a week. Great opportunity for her. She’s really looking forward to it. She is working for such a nice family!
Me? I’m knitting. Trying to get Christmas knitting finished. I have 3 gifts completed and I’m working on a fourth. The fifth is already planned, so I’ve got plenty to keep me occupied. (Rugrats via Netflix is pretty popular around here these days!)
Two of our godsons were Confirmed last Sunday! They were seated apart, so we could only really see the older one after he received the sacrament. HIS SMILE WAS PRICELESS! I wish I could have been in two places at once, though!
Surprise on Mother’s Day!
Mother’s Day was lovely and I received some GREAT gifts! Most of the kids chipped in and purchased two yarn swifts for me. I’ve been wanting them forever. They also gave me an electric yarn ball winder. I’m still learning how to use it properly so I can get the tension right, but I like it!
Summer has arrived (we hit 100°F a couple of days ago!) I’m quite glad. The a/c has been topped off with freon and we’re ready!
My mind is already occupied with next year’s elections. They are so, so important! My fellow Americans, GET INFORMED!
Those are some highlights. Sorry it’s so sketchy. Hoping I’ll be back again soon!
