In our part of the world March is going to begin with another snow storm. Boo!! I'm not a fan of snow in the mildest of winters and this one has been a doozy. Oh well, it's an excuse to sit inside and work.
I am going to make a baby blanket that matches this bib
After I write the pattern for both, I'll give them to my brother who is expecting another baby in July. I personally think he's (and his girlfriend) are nuts because at their age my babies were moving out and I had no plans to bring new ones in. I love babies and can't wait until I have grandchildren, but after 40 I think I was too busy with my own life to have had the patience for raising another child.
The years with the kids at home were busy and exciting and fun. I loved being a scout leader, class mom, and all that stuff. I enjoyed the chaos of having 4 children. I'm proud of them and what they are accomplishing in their life. Right now I have one kiddo at home and she's 14. If I don't feel well in the morning she can get her own breakfast. If I have work to get done, she doesn't need me to entertain her. Not that she gets ignored, but 14 is vastly different than 4. I'm enjoying this free time.
sometimes I wish I had gotten healthier when they were younger, but it's never too late to be a good influence. Once I started exercising the rest of the family (except my youngest son) got the bug too. Now we have this problem....
That has actually been an issue. I usually get nominated to carry the stuff because I am the slowest and walk more than they do at a race.
Not a bad problem to have. It's good to see them interested in exercise - and my mom got into 5ks too. She's doing virtual ones right now, but I'm going to sign her up for an inperson one. Maybe the 5k at the See Jane Run half that I am doing in September. Maybe one before that . Depends on $$.
I'm going into this month with a very positive attitude. Being MOD yesterday was so cool. I got a lot of great messages and posts. I still have to answer quite a few people, but I'll get that done this morning. The happy thoughts and energies really blew me away. A big Thank You to everyone!
