Hi All, I keep saying "now that my life has calmed down" and booommm it goes nuts again. I cannot believe that it has been over a month since I last wrote in my blog!! This move from Florida to Georgia has really kept me busy both mentally and physically. I should be as thin as a rail what with all the running around I do and the mental thought process trying to keep everything straight.
We are in the final process of the house purchase. The inspection is done with only a few major items that need to be done and only one that is a bit costly!! We hope to be closed in a few weeks, we have a closing date of Feb. 22, but we think we should close a bit later so that all the work will be done that needs to be done. After the closing we will have the inside of the house painted, the carpets cleaned and the hardwood floors refinished - we are also going to put hardwood in the master bedroom (which is on the 1st floor) to follow through with hardwood that is already there on the first floor. We are also thinking about keeping the stairs wood without carpeting - maybe we will put a runner.
Our daughter Lindsay has decided that she needs to reinvent herself and change her life and direction -- so she has decided to definitely move to Macon, with us. She will live with us for a few months until she finds a job, becomes familiar with the area and finds an apartment. I am very excited about this - I will have my own personal "help" desk computer person at my fingertips HEE HEE!!!
DH Terry, is loving his new job and they seem to like him - he wrote a paper (on technology something!!??)for an international organization and his paper was accepted and he will be traveling to Bulgaria to present it. I may or may not go - the airfare cost is quite expensive!!
I have been getting a lot of stitched pieces finished into usable items. I also have been knitting some dishcloths. I am working on Dutch Beauty, but haven't gotten as much done as I would like. I found a Quaker Sampler that I had started in 1999 and I hope to get it finished sometime within the next few weeks.
My goal for this year is to get several of my WIP's either finished or given away to someone who would like to have it. I also, intend to put in at least a few stitches a day on some project no matter how crazy busy it will get with the move and all.
