I love Easter vacation...tomorrow I leave for a week of sunshine (I hope) and sand. I promised myself many years ago that I would not stay at home during Easter vacation. The weather here is usually very dreary at this time of year. I am going to visit my parents in Florida and three of my four children will be able to join me. My senior in college has to stay behind to finish his Senior Thesis...don't feel too sorry for him, he spent his spring break in the Dominican Republic! He is graduating in May and is looking for a job...he already has at least one interview so mom and dad are very hopeful that we will have two children out of our pockets!
I have to go pack my clothes (my knitting is already packed!)...I may have to go shopping because I haven't tried on any of my shorts...yikes.
Happy Easter!

Life is too crazy

I can't believe it has been a month since I last posted. I have just been lazy. That's all there is to it! I have been working on the mystery sampler by Amy Mitten and it is slow going. I have also been doing a lot of thinking about sewing and knitting, but that sure doesn't accomplish much. I am going to Florida next week for a little vacation so I will be getting a couple of knitting projects together to take with me.

I started stripping the wallpaper in my bedroom. Ugh...what a terrible job...but I am going to stick with it until it's done. I have been picking out fabric to redecorate and now I just have to make my final decisions...stay tuned.
