Well, here we are at the beginning of the Olympics, and I have now undertaken my first reasonably large knitting project -
let's hope I can finish it before the end of the Olympics.
Life has been a bit busy, but I think it will settle for a little while for the next few weeks. Hours at Coldwater Creek are decreasing (apparently this is normal for this time of the year), and that is OK. So I am now back to working 3 nights per week on my private duty case (this means more knitting time).
When chatting with a dear freind of mine we referred to being bitten by the Knitting Beast as having a tryst with the Knitting Gods...oh how right she was. I am sure I will again go back to my old stand-by of Counted Cross Stitch...one day soon. I must admit that making things that are very usable and wearable, and complete-able in short periods of time - in comparison to my BAP's in cross stitch.
We are definitely in the throws of planning Rick's Transitions out of the Air Force after 28yrs. Yes, 28yrs!!! So now he will have to find his way in the civilian world. We have no idea yet what is in store for us. We hope maybe some time in Germany (other than the 30day holiday after his ceremony), or possibly a move to Oklahoma for him to complete his PhD in History, and then there is always the possibility of us staying here in VA while he works with a crew of folks he worked with previously - which would include lots of travel (goody goody). We just have to have faith in what is meant to be and what will be best for both of us, as well as the boys.
As for the boys at this time...Rich has finally gotten a job working as a Waiter at a restaraunt called Smokey Bones (greates BBQ you will ever taste); they are also affiliated with Red Lobster and Olive Garden. Hopefully he is getting his act together for college this coming fall, but who knows. We can only do so much, and since his Mother is not all into him going to college who knows what will really happen.
Josh is doing his Model UN 'thing' this coming week. I really hope he follows his instincts and goes for International Relations and Photography for college. He has grown up so much over the past 2yrs. We are both so proud of him. He has really come into his own and made a spot for himself.
Matt...well he just keeps plugging along. He has now gotten his music composition soft ware and will be busy with that this coming weekend since his brothers won't be around to bother him.
Thanks for listening to my rambling. I guess this blog thing is a good idea. Maybe tomorrow or this coming week I will post pics of my Knitting progress so far.
