6 months later...

I would love to be able to post some poignant reason for neglecting my blog for the past 6 months, but I've got nothing. Time simply got away from me between work, school, 2 active kids, and trying to get some knitting done. I am very much like my mother and burn the candle at both ends, and I've just added more fuel to the fire by committing to three more swaps just in time for the holidays.

The summer months kept me busy preparing for a baby shower for my sister-in-law and a birthday party for Little Man. Both events, while a hit, were cursed with bad news for my family. On Father's Day my cousin's truck was hit by a train while on his way to a service call. He thankfully survived, but is still under-going physical therapy. One leg was broken and his hip was shattered.

A few months later, another cousin was killed while working on his car. He was using a scissor jack to raise the car up so he could work on it, but did not have the car on jack stands. The jack slipped and he was crushed by the car.

My time has been spent with my family, enjoying every precious second of it.

The knitting that I did get done was in participation of the Ravelympics. You can find links in the sidebar to my projects.

I've been slowly updating the new template-- well I guess it's not new anymore since it got switched out in April, but I'm trying to get all my badges and links back together. I really cleaned house in my Photobucket account.

I was just about to kick your sorry butt out of my google reader. Not really, of course!

I hope this means you'll start posting some more.

Or, maybe I'll see you around in again in another 6 months? ;)
