Life goes on....

We're trying to get back into our routine around here....catching up on a lot of things that got ignored and pushed aside during the 2 weeks we lost between hospital visits, funeral arrangements and plain "not feeling like it".

Kim and I finally started on the wedding invitations last night. She's upset because she ordered them before she and Drew knew they'd be moving, so the response cards and return address on them are wrong. We made up some labels to put over them, but labels on the wedding invitations just doesn't sit well with her. It was either that, or get them reprinted (NOT!). So she has to get over it and use the fact that they have a brand new house as a consolation prize.

Meanwhile the shower is just 2 weeks away. ACK! I'm not ready!

Jake's baseball opening day is today. I'll be sure to get some pix of him while his uniform is still in pristine condition. Jake had his 8th birthday last weekend in the midst of all our turmoil. It was nice to focus on his special day and just let the kids be kids for a couple of hours. He had 6 of his classmates come over for pizza, cake and ice cream, and some good clean fun. Mike took the boys outside and hit balls for them to field, they played kickball, ran races, and just had a blast.

I'm working on several new knitting designs and hope to have both of them ready very soon. I'm seriously considering submitting one of them to Knitty. Cross your fingers that it gets picked! That would be so awesome! It's been hard finding time to get much knitting done lately. Hopefully I can find a few spare hours here and there to get things finished up and submitted.

The weather continues to be wacky. Today was the first day in a long time that there was not frost when I got up. I was able to throw the windows and doors wide open this morning and boy was that nice. snowed again on Tuesday. Yup, in May. Granted, it was only for about 10 or 15 minutes, but it was most definitely snowing. That had BETTER be the last of it!Anyway, the weekend is shaping up nicely. It's in the 70s and I'm loving it.

Off to hear the crack of bats against balls, the roar of the crowd, the smell of the hot dogs....oh, I got carried away...we're just playing at the middle school fields, not Comerica Park (Gosh I HATE that every sports stadium name now has to be an advertisement. Whatever happened to Tiger Stadium??? Comerica's people are not playing ball...the Tigers are!)
