I Don't Mean to Keep Disappearing...

Life has just been so busy lately. Alex is much better now; thank  you for all the well wishes :-) She's still teething molars (not fun!) and tends to be on the grouchy side (wouldn't you?). Tim's working less hours (Yay!) and Hope is doing well in eighth grade (how did she get to be 13 already?).

My crochet bug comes and goes; I've been getting the itch to make some baby hats lately. I'm very slowly making progress on the pink and red rose blanket; hopefully I'll get it done before the baby arrives! I'm not sure when she's due; I'll have to ask Tim to ask his coworker.

Family update: my nephew Cameron, who was born July 7, two months too early, is home! He's doing great and is up to 8 pounds.

More family news: we finally have a car!! It's been almost two long years of having one vehicle that only Tim can drive (I never learned to drive a stick shift, and his old beat up work truck is not something you can learn on). We bought it at the end of last year for $200 because it needed a transmission along with a lot of other things. Tim has been working every spare moment on it this year, and it's finally done!! He's taking it to be inspected and get current tags on it tomorrow. It still needs a lot of minor repairs, but it's able to be driven safely. 

That's all for now, just a quick update to let you know I'm still around :-)
Thanks for reading.
Blessings :-)
