This past week I worked on Happy Girl. I made quite a bit of progress and will be moving my scroll rods again.

Wednesday we travelled to Chicago to see the Tall Ships. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time. I was then off the rest of the week and lazed around the house with a trip to the library and stitching.

Back to work this week. I still have plenty of vacation time to use before the end of the year. I need to look at my calendar and plan more days off.

I feel like I made alot of progress on Abcedairie this past week. I would love to get it finished in my next rotation. That would make it the first finish of 2010.

School starts Monday. I hope our new schedule works out. Then on Wednesday I am off to see the Tall Ships in Chicago. I have been looking forward to this trip for a while. I only have to work Monday & Tuesday. Hope to get some extra stitching time in. I do have a few projects around the house I want to get finished. This is just the start of my 5 weeks of vacation time that I have to use before the end of the year. I need to look at my calendar and plan more time off.

We took my DD back to college Saturday. This will be her 3rd year. The first year we managed to fit all of her stuff in a mini cooper. This year it took 2 cars. I packed most of her stuff in her car and we followed behind in ours with the refrigerator. It was nice and hot to move in. 97. But it was only 2 trips from the cars into her room so within 45 minutes she was all moved in. No roommate yet. We left her there to sweat and headed on to a large flea market in Daleville. Walked around for a while with a few small purchases. Then we headed to White Castle as the boys needed their White Castle fix.

I did stitch on Day this week and it slowly moves on. Trying to catch up today on laundry.

Here is my progress on Garden Seed Packets. I almost have the first one done. Just a little backstitching to go. I also picked up from my lns Summer Garden framed. They always do a wonderful job at reasonable prices. I am trying to get at least one piece framed each year.

Registered my son for high school on Friday. He will get picked up by the bus at 6:45 am. This means I will have to get up even earlier to pry him out of bed. Maybe with my extra time in the morning I will stitch. I will also have to go to bed earlier to keep this schedule.

Stitched this past week on Freight Train. I am working on the 3rd train car.

Sunday we took a day trip to the Wright Patterson Air Force Museum. They had a Stealth Bomber on display. The museum has changed alot since the last time I was there. I think my son was still in diapers the last time we were there. Stopped for a delicious pizza on the way home at Rosati's. We got the Chicago Style pizza. Brought home half a pizza as one piece was all each of us could eat.

Last Sunday my daughter got engaged. No date set as they want to finish college first. They still have 2 years to go. I feel older and older with each new change to our lives.
