Happy Febuary

Finally an update.   Lots of stuff has been going on with me and sometimes I just cannot get the umph to ge online to tell ya about it.  Many decisions have been made.  I am not doing school through the College Network anymore.  I will be going back to Blackhawk Technical College and get my RN.  Chemistry really kicked my butt.  Being teacher and student with that class was not fun at all.  I am very excited about this.  I do not have a confirmed yes that I will be going in the fall but I have both fingers and toes crossed so that hopefully I will get in during the fall semester.  If not then spring.  I will be "testing out of " my mental health/community nursing class.  So all I will have the first semester will be clinicals and one lecture class.  I will have to check off on 3 of the 5 skills they  have given me to make sure my technique is acceptable.  I am very confident that I will be able to pass those two requirements in an appropriate time frame.
I have been stitching.  I joined a couple of exchanges and I will post those pics as soon as the people recieve them.  I am very excited, I will be going to Syracuse, New York for a stitching retreat when the designer/owner  for Lizzie Kate and La D Da will be there.
This is a picture from my partner in the Seasonal Exchange.  I love it.  It is sitting on my book case in the living room.

This is how far I have gotten on my "6 Fat Men" from Lizzie Kate.
Reading has been a passion also.  Either reading or listening to a book.  In October I sprained my ankle bone.  First crutches, then working in a wheel chair at work.  I am finally done with Physical therapy.  It seemed like my ankle was going to hurt forever.  It is much much better now.  My boys are doing very well.  One started back to school and he is staying in school.  Yeaaah.   My other son is happy working at his job and enjoys the group home where he lives.  Life is not too bad right now.  Just to get back in the swing of blogging again.

It sounds like you have had a lot on your plate lately. Hopefully you will get the particulars with school worked out soon.

I love the pictures of the exchange piece you received and the LK project you are stitching. I just love snowmen and might have to invest in some LK patterns soon. Have a great day!
