I've been feeling down. Stress. Trying to juggle working a full time job outside the house and the full time one that comes with family and it's starting to get me stressed. I don't feel like I am able to give 100% to either one and that makes me feel bad. I love taking care of my family. It is what I have wanted to do all my life. I never really wanted a fancy career, just a loving husband and kids. I have that now, and I appreciate what I have so very much. I am a lucky woman and I know it. My husband trys to make me feel loved and appreciated and I want him to know that I do appreciate his sweet gestures and attempts to make me feel better when I am down. I love you honey, and you are a silly, silly man, but I love what you tried to do waiting at the weigh station for me. Thanks for getting me!!!! I love you with all my heart!

I am making this new afgan for myself. It is the colors that are in my family room, and I am loving how the squares are coming out. I may make two! They are so warm when they are done, and there is definately a sense of pride when completed. I think that crocheting and knitting are becoming a lost art. When I was a child my mom knit us kids mittens. We could pick the colors we wanted, and she would make them longer so they would go into the sleeve of our coats so the snow and cold would not reach our arms. I still have a few pair that I cherish. I never learned to knit mittens, but I do make a lot of things myself that most people probably go out and buy! Thanks for teaching me these skills, Mom!
