I'm back! Wow, what a busy couple of weeks I've had. In order:
1. Watched my youngest and oldest grandkids for 8 days
2. Baby Girls Senior/Awards Night
3. Graduation and a house full of company
4. Graduation party and a yard full of company
My Granddaughter is doing fine and they've changed some meds and added a new one so she's on the right road. It was a long 8 days being cooped up in a hospital, but the other 2 and I made out great. Oh, and their Mom enjoyed 8 days in a king size bed between running across the street to the hospital to spend time with the middle grandchild. She could only visit from 11a.m. till 8p.m. so got some much needed rest every night/morning.
I ran back and forth from their home an hour away to my house, to clean and get ready for the graduation and party the next day. We made it, the party was great, everyone seemed to have a good time and the last guests left at 10:30. I figure that's a good indication that it went well since they all arrived around 3!
The Baby Girl is now officially out of high school and cannot wait for college to begin in July. She starts early and has to move in early because she's in the marching band. She got her diploma, graduated with honors and got the music seal and the college prep seal on her diploma. That's what she's been striving for these past 4 years and she did it! She wore a pink cord which is for being in band for 4 years and keeping up her A average in all classes and she also graduated with a gold cord and gold tassel for graduating with honors. She will go to college with a full scholarship, which will last all threw college as long as she maintains the A average.
Me, I'm still knitting when I find the time. Actually I got quite a bit done while staying with the grandkids, but didn't finish anything like I'd hoped. I've only just picked it up again after about a week of no knitting at all. Sometimes life just gets in the way. I haven't even used my May shopping for yarn day yet, but I'm hoping to order a few things and go to my LYS next week sometime when I go to the island to have my oil changed. Even my car is feeling neglected!
I've caught up on everyone's blogs and my e-mail, so now I'm going to spend the rest of this day in my jammies, working on my CeCe sweater, which I hope will be done really soon!
Here's some pictures to keep it all less boring.
