It's been over a year since my last post! Poor blog. It's so neglected.

So anyway, my classes start in two days, and I'm not prepared. The classes I take care of are all prepped, so it's just Faculty stuff this weekend and finishing up some stuff on the courses.
Last week I was in a cultural immersion class. We went to Arizona, Colorado, Shiprock, DZ, it was great! I learned a lot, had a great time.

Anyway, here you go bloggie. A small post for you. I'll try to pay more attention to you.

Well, heck. If I wait a few days, it'll be a year since my last post. One post a year, how interesting. Diva says hi!

Everyone is still ok, same crap, different day.

Has it really been that long?

Wow. I am a lousy blogger. Let's see, since I last posted, I have gotten my Bachelor's degree, become a grandmother, and knitted a lot. HAHAHA. I live such an exciting life.

I wish I had some pictures of my knitting to post, but I keep giving them away before I take pictures of them. Cass is supposed to send me some pictures of the diaper bag and baby blanket I made for her; I am still waiting. I think she is trying to make me go take the pictures myself.

Not much has happened, which I guess is a good thing. Ooops, gotta get to work!!

I am still alive

School started again, so I am working with students and being one myself. The Spanish class is fun, the Religion class is going to be interesting, but a lot of work. The other classes are kind of just there, have to do 'em, not much fun. But I will get through the semester.

I am tired of being sick. I have been on antibiotics for a week now, but am starting to feel bad again. I am sure it is all Cassie's fault. She is a brat. The little beast has dropped out (oh my aching heart) and is going to get married. I feel I am losing my baby, but hopefully we will still be friends. I guess I will still nag and gripe. Cass, you know you will always be my baby, but seeing you as a grown up married lady is REALLY WEIRD. And you BETTER go back to school soon. You promised. I love you and miss you, but I guess life goes on. I sure hope you know what you are doing.

Anyway, me, Diva, and the dogs have been ok. I was looking around the house/sty last night thinking I have got to start getting rid of some of that mess and cleaning up. I don't know where to start. I need an industrial size shredder. And once THE BRAT gets her stuff out of the way, I can organize all the yarn. I will get to pet it and visit yarn I forgot about. That might be fun.

Oh, Mom is doing super fine. She has no side effects from the stroke and seems to be fiestier than ever. She makes me laugh. I do love the mommy.

I got to email with Mary yesterday; she is my buddy, my friend, my advisor. I love her too. And I emailed Ceil. Love her too. I am just bursting with love and missing my friends right now. Maybe it is time to get out there and make some more friends.

The day is getting better

Even though my nose is still running and my head feels like it is stuffed with cotton, things are looking up. Anthony called! Yay! He is doing okay. I wonder if he misses his mommy. He said Cass told him to call because I am "sitting alone with her yarn." Wonder where she got that idea. Brat. She is okay too. She has been a college student for one whole week now.

The mail lady brought me three ebay packages and the UPS man brought me another one. Wow. I got some MORE YARN, Iris Schrier's Modular Knits book (that's gonna keep me busy for a while - AWESOME), some sheets for Cass, and a textbook. So that was fun. I will probably spend the rest of the afternoon blowing my nose while I play with my yarn and new book. What a way to spend the afternoon! Fun, except for the nose part. Ick.

It's been a while

I am still here. I had to get the kid off to college, so now I am wandering around my house trying not to trip over the dog. Cass is doing fine, as far as I know. She will be ok.

Classes started again on Monday, so now I am trying to get back in school mode. Haven't cracked a book yet. *sigh* Guess what I'll be doing over the weekend?

That's it for now. Waiting for the caffeine to kick in so I can get some work done. Shame on me.

Down Time

Yesterday we got all the grades in. Whoo hoo! Summer semester is over for one school. I still have one class left at the other school. After that I hope to do something with my yarn. I promised Ceil a poncho out of Homespun, so I guess I need to make that before I can play with my other stuff. I am hoping to get something done during the Summer break.
