Gosh, it has been so long since I’ve had a moment to write here…I feel like a tresspasser here. There is so much to tell that it’s almost overwhelming and yet nothing is all that interesting! LOL How sad.
J1 and Eric have been on a break since April 18! While it’s nice to have them here…nothing is normal! In traditional Osborn fashion, as soon as Eric was off work he got sick. Maybe he was sick a few days before school was out, but I can’t remember now. We tried to go on our vacation to the Gold Country and, bless his heart, he tried to have a good time. But after 4 days – I got sick. We came home early. I spent about 5 days in bed….very weak. I’m only just now starting to feel human again. We had planned to visit our friends, Gregg & Dixie in Oregon during this break too – but due to the illness, we had to cancel.
J2 has had 2 visits for speech therapy during all this – he really enjoys it and tries very hard. I’m hating the weekly drive to Sacramento and waiting in the van SHOULD be a great time to knit, but even that hasn’t helped lately.
What else to tell you? Oh! The Woodland Area Knitters (WAKs) group that I started is taking off! We have about 12 members of the email list and a neat variety of people come each week to chat, share and knit. I’m really enjoying the diversity of the ladies (no men yet) and seeing the beautiful things they knit! And, the speed! Last week we had a couple of new gals (one who it turned out taught me to knit a few years ago LOL) and they were FAST!! OMGosh! I was amazed.
I’m still working as an indepent contractor for The Homeschool Magazine aka “The Old Schoolhouse” and loving it! In fact, I was just given some more duties! I love that it fits my skills, gifts and abilities so well and that I set the hours/time I will work!
Well, I’ll try to write more soon – they need my help on the new fort!
