I finished it on his birthday, which was 01/19. Funny to me to call him "friend". For five years he was my "boss." I called him dude. Hey, I even have this in the mail! That's gotta be some kind of record for me. I'm very pleased with the way the blanket turned out. It's extremely warm, but I am tired of making those danged squares!
Work has been a pain as the paperwork piles up, but the people that need my attention are more demanding by the day. I am seriously thinking of going back to the bench. Steven needs help in algebra, and I can't help him if I'm not home til 7 pm. Money's tight, even in the hospital business, so everyone is being asked to do more with less. It's really tough and leaves less time for the things I like. Will just wait for now and see what the future brings, plugging away as best I can, but making sure I make time for my boys.....
I hope to post more pics this weekend. The holidays were fun and family filled. I have reconnected with quite a few high school friends on facebook. Fun finding out what they have been up to. Myspace is still mainly for the nieces and boy's girlfriends.
On another note, Sam, Nicole and Ethan went to Washington DC for the inauguration of Barack Obama. Oh to be young and fancy free and to on road trips like that again! (OK, they went with Layla and her mom, who had the trip well-planned). They were cold and had to stand way back by the Washington monument, but they were THERE! AWESOME.
On Monday, I leave for Baltimore Maryland for a lab inspection. I haven't been that far north during the winter in over 20 years. Can't wait to see how that goes!
OK, I'll save more fun stuff for the weekend. Hope y'all are staying warm and safe where ever you may be!
