As I alluded to in my last post, I have a new car! A 2007 Chevy HHR. I love the vintage feel...And yes, my son did put a little wrinkle in my back bumper.
Remember this guy?
Well our evil neighbor went on a cat trapping and euthanasia spree and Oliver got caught up in the round up. It's been over a year and I am still too angry to really talk about it...
Anyway, we have a new kitty! Precious Cameron is now the newest member of our family.
Work is going well - very, very busy and traveling a bit (Kentucky last week, SF Bay Area next week...). Have I mentioned I love my new job?! Night and day difference from my last job in the Hell hole.
Ally is still cute and annoying as all get out. Courtesy of the Ally Archives:
Son Gabriel is in the midst of his Rugby season and is covered bruises most of the time these days - brutal game, but he loves it! He obtained his driver's license in December and has been tooling around town in my old Honda - what have I unleashed upon the world?! Next hurdle - new suit and haircut for the Junior Prom in two weeks - Ah, my boy is growing up...!
Daughter Sarah is in the throws of finalizing the school yearbook (she's the editor) and getting off to the presses. She's also flitting from one Indie (underground) concert to another around town, but gets offended when we say she's a "groupie." Pictures like the one below keep cropping up on her MySpace, posing with various bands. Her Sweet 16 birthday is coming up next month and we booked a couple bands and have invited everybody. Should be fun...
You may recall Graeme fell and broke his elbow, ending up having major surgery in June with intense rehabilitation therapy. He finally returned to full-time work in October; however, due to the nature of his injury, he will not regain full use of his arm - although he can still do his job with accomodation. Also, Graeme and Gabriel will be winging their way down to Australia in August to visit his family. Graeme's parents will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and Graeme wants to surprise them. Sarah and I will be holding down the fort while the boys are away. Sarah will travel down with her dad next year.
Knitting, crocheting and beading activity has been sporadic at best. I knitted up a chunky scarf for a co-worked, no pics though. I've started a little crocheted purse out of some banana frond yarn I picked up a couple of years ago...
A couple of other exciting things going on in my life right now, but I'll tell you about them in subsequent posts - gotta keep you coming back - all two of you - HA!
Well, that's my life in a nutshell right now.
