Just 5 more days

Until...well, my life changes. I'm not nervous yet! But it's still 5 days. I said things would be different by the time I hit the big 4-0!
I'm ready for it.
Also so glad that most of the home improvement projects are done. It's been nice to have those things taken care of. Someone is coming tomorrow to look at the window. We still need to do the power washing and I need to talk to John about converting the patio...but this is becoming a home I can be proud of. It's been a long time coming. But, I'm to the point that I'm pretty pleased with it. Oh and I'm loving the home management binder. It's exactly what I was looking for and perfectly tailored to my needs and so adaptable as our lives change. It rocks!
I really need to get a new camera. Maybe I'll get one at Christmas.

Just call me Mary

Frickin' Typhoid Mary that is. For the second time in a month I have strep! What grown person gets strep throat...jeez! I knew my throat hurt like heck, but I thought it was something viral. Well, I hope I get rid of it for good this time. I have a ton of stuff to do this month and I can't be sick! I'm so far behind on all my sewing. I really need to hop on the kids Christmas outfits and get some pictures. I'd like to be able to do them around Thanksgiving and get them out early. (Yeah! Right! )
Oh...cleaned up the FW 221. It wasn't very dirty at all. Someone really loved it and cared for it and now I get to love it and take care of it! Yay for me! I love sewing machines, they're so cool.

It was a good day

Today was family day. We went bowling and to the Borders...oh and tried to go looking for a MP3 player for A. It was fun. It's too bad you have to bowl 10 frames, we sort of lose M and O. about halfway through.
But, best of all...I finally got a FW 221. It's so exciting. I've wanted one for ages. I'd take a picture, but my battery on my camera(well, the charger) is kaput. soon as I can, I'm going to take one to share. It was a good day!
