Well, it has been well over a month since my last post and I am happy to say I finally have something to show. I wish I could say I got more accomplished this last 6 weeks or so, especially while the Olympics have been on, but, I must admit that I have been too mesmerized by the craziness of some of these people to go hurling down a mountain or whatever at insane speeds to pick up my needle. I have managed to finish my required stitching for this round of my RR and am ready to send my piece off in the mail. I can't wait for it to return at year's end all complete. I have LOVED stitching on this piece!!!

The weather here has been insanely cold this winter. As I know it has been all over the place. My son's school even had a Snow Day a couple of weeks ago. That might seem crazy to Northerners, but, trust me, we just aren't equipped to deal with snow here. There are no snow plows, shovels, salt, or snow blowers to be found for several hundred miles. While we only saw about 2 minutes of flakes here in my direct area, there was a good covering about 20 or so miles north of us. I'm sure all school officials didn't want to risk having buses or teenage drivers on the road during possible icy conditions. That's a lawsuit waiting to happen!
2010 seems to be off to a somewhat slow start. I am still waiting to hear some great news on the job front, but, I hope to hear something in that arena soon. While nothing has been particular exciting so far this year, at least it seems better than 2009. :-)
Thanks for all your comments. I love reading them.
Take care & stay warm!
