Memorial Day

Today is a day for remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice.  The many men and women who died to ensure the rest of us still remain free.  With my boyfriend being in the military and having men from his company die in the Iraqi war this day takes extra special meaning for him.  We went to the local Memorial Day parade and he chose to wear his uniform to honor those who weren't able to come home.  It was amazing how many kids and adults came up to shake his hand and thank him for his service, makes me proud, not only of him but the wonderful community we live in.  He's also decided to re-enlist when his contract is up in December.  

This is for my two classmates, LCPL Jonathan Collins, KIA August 2004 in OIF, and Capt. Nathan McHone killed when his helicopter crashed in Afghanistan earlier this year, SPC Norman L. Cain III, SGT Christopher P. Abeyta, and SSGT Timothy Bowles.  Your sacrifice for our country will not be forgotten.

when time gets away from you

Can't believe I've been away for so long!!!

What's been occupying my time?  Certainly hasn't been sewing.  I'm dreadfully backlogged with projects.  Almost 3 mos behind on my Dear Jane and really haven't made much progress on anything else.  The only thing I've managed to do is read this stack of books (and then some)

Also got some work done on some hexies.  I won a couple mini charm packs from Kate Spain about a month ago along with a charm pack of Joy so I've been busy adding to my hexie collection

I've also been nursing a very sore back from a car accident.  My car looks ok although it does need a trip to the body shop it's still driveable.  There's no telling what kind of damage is hidden under the bumpers.  I was sammiched between 2 cars and the accident wasn't my fault.  Killer part is my first payment wasn't even due yet!  And I've been rear-ended in every single car I've owned with the exception of my truck.  Maybe I need to get another one.  Thankfully the I have the hexies to keep my hands busy while I lounge on the couch.
