I'm going on a trip!!!!

I can't believe it but I am actually getting to go on a trip!! I am going to Phoenix to visit the sweetest relatives. I am also going with my mil who is nice enough to let me tag along with her. I can't wait! It is the first time I have taken a vacation without my kids or hubby. I hope to relax, stitch and crochet a little. I also hope to come back with a bunch of pictures and yes...ROCKS!!!!
DD is doing okay after her surgery. She is still in some pain but went back to school today. I hope she was able to stay awake for most of her classes.

Update of SAL

Here is my progress so far with my L&L SAL. She is coming along nicely. I can't wait to get into the greens and burgundy's of her dress.

My dd had surgery on Friday so I haven't had much time to stitch but I hope to get more done this week and next.

That is a perfect word to describe that mood where you just are overwhelmed with things to do and you have no idea where to start or even how you are going to make a dent in things.
We found out late last week that dd is going to have surgery on her jaw this Friday. She is actually looking forward to it. She has been in pain so long she is relieved. I just hope this fixes the problem but I am not sure it will.
I guess I better and try to make that dent....sigh!

Today is my son's birthday!

I can't believe he is now nine years old!! We are having his party after scouts so it has been another busy weekend. We found out this week that he also tested so high on his testing at school they automically put him in the accelerated program. We don't think it will be the best option for middle school but for elementary school it is great.

I haven't had much time to work on my SAL. My a new book and I pulled out my crochet as well. I hope to get some stitching done this week. I also found out I will be heading to an all expense paid trip to San Francisco in March. The publisher of one of my textbooks is footing the bill...can't wait!!

Well, off to get the cake.
Let's get this party started!

I hope this picture works. Here is my first L&L angel. She is also my first linen piece. I have several other L&L angels I plan to do after this one. I got my fabric for the Dove of Peace so I am going to start that one soon and work it in as a rotation.

My family are coming in tonight so no stitching this weekend for...

What a night....

We spent the evening in Urgent Care with ds. He has strep and a bleeding bruise on his scalp...really bizarre and kinda scary. So, I was up all night checking on him. He seems to be okay other than his troat.

Today is voting day and I feel like I am choosing the lesser of two evils. My candidate decided not to run this time around so I am a little bummed. It is dd first voting opportunity so she is excited. Since she plans to go into politics, this is a big day for her. I have my camera ready.

I have been stitching on my SAL and plan to post a picture soon. I hope to get to stitch tonight after things settle down.

My brother and nieces are coming back out this weekend and we are headed to one of the nearby animal parks IF the weather cooporates anyway.
