It's a New Year... thank goodness!!!

So... the whole month of December flew by.  Between my crazy hours at work and projects around the house it seemed to go by in a flash and I can't honestly say I am sorry to see the end of 2011. I could rehash all the horridness of 2011 but I am not going to bother... I am merely going to say "Welcome" and "Glad you are here" to 2012.

The husband started his new job today.  We got up at 5am and I sent him out the door at 6:30 with a cup of coffee, a lunch and a hearty "good luck and remember to sit with people who make you feel good about yourself." What can I say... I have been saying the same thing to my girls for as long as I can remember and its just habit.  He laughed and gave me a big hug.

Then I took the teen to school, we wont talk about or dwell over the fact that the car wouldn't start at first.  We had parked it on a hill, and it was only 20 degrees this morning so I am hoping that was the problem.  After I dropped her off I drove for probably 30 minutes and stopped a couple of times and then restarted the engine.  Seems fine now... but I will continue to go out periodically during the day and check to see if its starting.  Why in heavens name would it pick today to give me problems?  But like I said... im not going to dwell on it... much.

The niece is having a baby shower on Feb 18 so I need to get hopping on her baby blanket... also find some cute but simple baby things to make online.  I have a sewing machine... it should probably be used from time to time eh?  hehe

I also want to finally get Maddys quilt done.  Its only been a few years ... *sigh* Not sure its still appealing to her but she deserves to have it finished.  I also need to make Miss Eileen a no sew fleece blanket... I know she has been wanting one and her birthday is coming up on the 8th.  I can't believe she is going to be 22... hell... i remember being that age.

I want to make this the year I get back into my crafts... quilting, sewing, knitting and soap making.  I honestly miss all of them.

Here is to starting the new year off right...
