I'm stuffed

I am still full from all of the wonderful Thanksgiving food! Thanksgiving was really nice this year. It felt relaxing and surprisingly unstressed. I ended up doing a lot of the cooking at my dad's house and it all turned out great! I even managed to get all of the food cooked and on the table at the same time (typically an issue).

My husband and I saw this guy while walking around Chicago a few weeks ago (I love Chicago by the way! I would live there if it weren't so darn cold in the winter.)I found the gargoyle online, ordered it and it should be here any day! I am so excited! It is supposed to bring good luck. I can't wait!

I am furiously knitting scarves for my nieces and nephews to go with my sister-in laws-hats that we are giving as Christmas gifts. I finished one this weekend and made pom-poms and attached them. I think the scarf looks great. I am hoping that it goes with the hats. Oh well, it's the thought that counts, right?

I'm back!

So after a break from blogging I have decided to return to telling my story online! Lots has happened since my last post in May
  • One school year ended with lots of tension
  • The summer was fairly uneventful. I worked for Arlington County Parks and Recreation in the Wellness Department. It kept me busy and gave my day structure which I desperately need. I wish I could be one of those people that can get up and stay motivated without a plan. I tend to stay in bed and watch tv and do nothing which then makes me feel like crap.
  • Back to work...Same tension that was here in June. Not so much fun. Lots of unhappy people here...It is poisonous.
  • We threw a great Halloween party. My father and girlfriend and sister and boyfriend attended. It was a blast!
  • We are making great progress on our house renovation. We have a beautiful new front porch (which was truly needed since the old one was falling down). The construction crew has now moved to the inside of the house and it is amazing. I love to come home from work everyday and see what has gotten done. I'll post pictures soon.
  • Our dog is still crazy but he might be settling down a little.
  • My sister-in-law and I are knitting the little ones hats and scarves. I'll be doing the scarves. She is knitting these beautiful hats...I can't even read the pattern. She's got skills. You can check out her shop and blog at www.eweniquefiber.com
  • The Democrats are back! The world is looking brighter.

Be well, Lara
