It was a short summer...

...and now it is over....

As I sit and type...I really should be heading for bed...the alarm will be going off way too early...although I got a taste of early last week...we were required to be there Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday...I was also there on Friday....I am ready...at least my room is ready...lol

I had surgery on August 22....Click here if you want the details...I faced being "put out" for the first time in my life...was a little scarey...but, it all went well and I am recovering...Was a much better alternative to a hysterectomy. If you have questions...I am open to discussion - but wasn't sure this was the place to do that...so, email me.

I spent most of the summer dealing with the medical business leading up to the decision to have the procedure done....seems like the summer really went by fast.

On a lighter note...I spent Saturday night with three very close friends of mine...two of which are experiencing "empty nest" syndrome...so, we had a "sleep over"...literally...It was a lot of fun...lots of laughter and chocolate.

What would we do without good friends to share our life with? They are the ones who lift us up when life hits hard, celebrate with us when life is good, and know when to just listen and hug. Thank God for good friends. They have truly been a blessing in my life over the years.

I did finish my scarf - pictures to come this week...I hope.

First day of school tomorrow- Chris' "last" first day.... the start of his senior year....we had his grad pics taken on Friday...another story for another day....

It sure was short. Our schools start today, MD & DC opened last week. Now I need to figure out the school bus arrivals so I can leave the house before or after they load up. Plus our Beltway traffic will increase tenfold.
Hope your day is a great one.

So, how are the kiddies? I emailed you, don't know if you got it. I miss you! I wish I could have been at the sleepover - sounds like some serious fun.

Hi Alaina! I'm back! Last week was our 'official' back to school week, though we did start our school routine just a little sooner to get us into the swing of things. I hope the fall is just as beautiful as the summer was here.

Hope your recover continues well.

With all those knitting projects on the go, I'm wondering why your profile still says 'newbie' knitter? :)
