Wow, a month?!

Holy crap. I was doing so well updating this blog for a while. Then the hubby came home and that all went downhill! :) He's been home for about 5 weeks now and life has been just glorious! We went to NC for a week which was fantastic. We hadn't been home to NC in about 2.5 years. It was so great to see everyone and just have fun with friends. There was also some great news from friends and family up there. The hubby's mom is getting remarried, and she seems to be really happy. One of our best friends is FINALLY having a baby, after trying for a really long time. I need to get on the ball with knitting up some presents! I've done almost NO knitting in the past month. There's only about 6 weeks left before the munchkin gets out of school, and I still need to finish her teacher's baby blanket, hat and socks. Eeeek! There's just been a lot of distractions lately...and there are more on the way! Like this:

That is my new lathe and super pen making starter kit from Penn State Industries. It has everything you need to get started making pens, including the lathe, accessories, and enough blanks and parts to make 40 pens & pencils! Woohoo!! We just ordered it last night, so it will be a few days before it gets here. The hubby has a woodworking workshop out in the garage, so this will let me spend time with him without being in his way. I'm going to con him into making me a lathe table. :)

Well, I think that's about all that's new right now. I'm going to try to keep updating, but no promises as to how often. Don't forget to thank a vet!
