Long time, no see

I've been rather busy and not getting in here like I should. I still haven't exactly decided what I want to do with this blog, so from here on out, I'm going to talk about whatever I want to: Family, Politics, Crochet, Knitting, and much more. I have a tendency to overthink things, thus paralyzing myself. At least I know my weaknesses:)

Today my oldest Son, his wife and my grandchildren will arrive at my home at around 6pm. I am SO EXCITED. I've spent the last week trying to get the house in shape and put away all my "piles", especially the one of doll clothes I'm making the girls for Christmas. Ready or not, here they come! We live about 2 1/2 hours apart, so any time I get to see them is a pleasure.

They will be back next week sans parents, and we're all going to Michigan for a family reunion. That's a long way to travel with three kids (6, 4, 7mo)but it will be an adventure. My daughter is going along, so hopefully she will help out (age 21). We're going to spend at least one night there since it's such a trip with small children. I wouldn't have had any qualms if it were my children, but I'm not as young as I was when it was my kids and I get tired easily. Ah well, it's all good.

I've been doing a LOT of crocheting. My husband thinks I opened up a yarn shop. That's not such a bad idea. I do have a tendency to over project myself and wind up with projects all over the place in various stages of development. I'm trying to get the newest grandson's Christmas stocking and doll clothes for the girls finished early so I don't have to stress as much over Christmas.

My husband has been off work for 6 months now. He was at his company for 32 years! They moved us to our current location and then downsized him. God always takes care of us though, so I'm not worried, just praying and waiting to see what God is going to do. He's never failed me yet.
