Yes, it's me again

I'm still around....and hey, it hasn't even been very long since my last post. My life lately seems to be an endless round of work, laundry, cleaning, and trying to reduce the clutter. No leads on the house selling yet, which is okay....I definitely don't need MORE work to do right now. lol

I've been working more hours lately, in addition to my needlework job. I have been trying to work a little bit each day on one of my WIPs and refuse to start any new projects for the time being. This shawl is coming along well, I've managed to add a few inches to it and have used about 1/2 of the first ball of yarn. The pattern only calls for two balls, so that gives you an idea of how far I have to go yet.

I've also made progress on the Sweet Mary Jane Cardi I am about 1/2 done with the first sleeve and will soon be putting it onto a stitch holder while I knit the second sleeve. I envision having this sweater done before summer is over.

Only 19 days left until I go to California! I thought I might get the chance to see Justin while I was there, but he'll be in the desert that week preparing for his deployment to Iraq in August. I will be able to spend some time with Jessica, though and that is awesome!!!

Going to California!!

This is me, doing a happy dance! =) I'm going to CA in July for leadership training in a ministry I've been involved in. The training will take place in a city that is pretty close to where my two Marines are stationed, so you know what that means.......I will get to spend some time with them. Well, okay....Justin might actually be in the desert that week, depending on how well his hand has healed up....so I might not see him. But Jessica will be around and we have made plans to do some stuff during my free time. I'll be extending my trip just so her and I can have a whole day to do whatever. It's going to be a blast...except for the flying part. I don't care much for flying, but it's going to be worth it. =)

I just got some really adorable photos of my granddaugher Kelly that I'll be uploading to share with you. She's getting so big...walking all over the place and is keeping us entertained with her cuteness.
