Spring is finally here!

I don't know about you, but April has been pretty tumultuous. I've had two laptops fail. (one crashed, the other the monitor part died).  We've had too many trips to the Dr. (Thank God that as of this moment all 4 of us are healthy... I'm grateful, I don't want to jinx our good fortune). Of course Tax time is always super stressful and I own my own business, so it's an extra demoralizing whammy to write a check for such a huge percentage of my earnings.

What else has been going on?  Well now that I've complained some about how hard April has been. (I'm leaving out the really gory details...) it's time to talk about the GOOD things that have been happening....


I'm just kidding.  The kids are wrapping up the school year in fantastic fashion. I've been training to run a half marathon (13.1 miles) since January and despite a few major stresses that threatened to throw me off course, I did my Half the Saturday before Easter!  I walk at least a little each mile but I finished the whole 13.1 miles in a reasonable time... and I have to say I'm proud of myself. It was a challenge that took 15 weeks to prepare for and I did it.

I filmed another Online Class for Annie's and it is SO AWESOME. I just love it, love it, love it and I can't wait to share it with you.  It should debut this summer and I'll hopefully be signing DVD copies of it at the Knit and Crochet Show in Manchester, NH in July.

I'm preparing now to go to TNNA in Indianapolis for the 'Summer Show' this coming weekend. I'm looking forward to seeing many of my crochet and knit friends who I only get to see 1 or 2 times per year.
