OMG.. It has been FOREVER!!

I know it has been forever since I last posted. I did not fall off the face of the earth (well not literally anyway). I have been so busy with things that I just don't know which way is where any more!! I have done some sewing but not much.

This weekend is supposed to be a relaxing weekend we'll see how that goes though. Things in the last couple months have been anything but relaxing. There have been good times and well some rather stressfull (want to pull you hair out times) that I just felt were pretty pointless to share with everyone.

First let me say hello to mom who has sent me emails on almost a daily basis that say "What happened to my favorite blogger she disappeared". Luckily she doesn't depend on my blog to keep up with the happenings in my life.. smiles. We did get moms blog started and she has posted a few times. She is currently in Colorado this week taking care of the house there.. Oh and mom don't forget to say hello to my new baby for me!! Just kidding!!

Now there have been alot of other work things going on some I can talk about others that well I won't even mention. Things have been pretty confusing my squadron recently deployed with out me. I am supposed to be meeting up with them later but still don't know when. Things have been finalized for my re-enlistment!! I will be re-enlisting on June 12th the day after I graduate from this school. For those that dont know I will hit my 10 years active service in the Navy June 8th, I will finally be paid for making First Class Petty Officer (E-6) on June 16th. I do get a bonus for re-enlisting and had all this quilty stuff in mind in the begining but things have since changed and other deals have been set into motion.

Remember when I mentioned earlier for mom to say hello to my new baby? Well if everything goes as planned I will be buying my dads GIANORMOUS truck from him as well as trading him my truck (smaller 2002 silverado extended cab). That would be my new baby sitting in the garage there with mom in colorado. I love my dads truck!! I have loved it from the very first time that he called me on the phone and said hey listen to this as he rev'ed the engine. Let me tell you a little about this truck... Its an 05' Silverado, Crewcab, Longbed and yes its a DIESEL! Do I need a truck that big NO! and diesel is not getting any cheaper (thank god I still have my little honda) the thought behind it was that dad had FINALLY gotten the big boys truck that he had always wanted and he was ready to trade it in because of fuel prices and what not. Being the good daughter that I am, I knew that if he got rid of it that he would be sorry so as a joke I told him that I would trade and he agreed. Its a win win I get a pretty new truck and he can still come and visit it... HA HA HA just kidding.. he still has the ability to use it when he needs it. It is by no means going to be my daily driver to work. I will have to drive it a few times just to make the boys a little self concious about how little their trucks are ha ha ha... (cheesy grin).

Well that is all for me tonight I need to head to bed so that I can go to school in the morning. 3 more weeks and I'm done with school YEAH!! Oh and stay tuned for new pictures of some chicken pincushions, Ryans pillows and a Challenge fabric block!! See I did do some sewing.
