Appreciating Moms....

Good Afternoon everyone!! Goodness I have been so out of the loop with my blog. Hopefully after all the appointments and receiving a final decision from the navy things will slow down for me and I can focus more on being creative and less on the stressful things in life.

Have you heard?? Regina is having a give away!! She is giving away a yummy cook book in support of the American Cancer Society in honor of her mother who is currently going through chemo. Thoughts are with your mom Regina as this is a topic that hits close to home in many ways.

I myself am a supporter of ACS but also of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in support of my Mom. Every year the navy gives me the opportunity to donate funds from my paycheck to charities that I choose through a program called the Combined Federal Campaign. Every year for as long as I can remember I have always donated to ACS, The Lymphoma Society, and the Epilepsy Foundation.

So here are some heart felt thoughts going out to all mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, friends and other realitives that have been affected.

Who Knew?

Who Knew that you could meet so many interesting people through blog land? A friend and fellow blogger Jill was asked to review a book on her blog. In return she gets a copy of the book to keep and is giving away a copy on her blog here.

As I was taught last week in my Transition Assistance (to help me become a civilian again after being a sailor for 12 years) its all about networking! Who knows what kind of opportunities will come your way.

So Hop on over to Jill's Blog and Check out Sandra Dallas' new Book Whiter than Snow.

Been Busy

Good morning blog world!! How has everyone been doing lately? Things have been busy here in my circle of the world. I have been getting paperwork together to send to the Navy Medical board for them to make a decision as to if I can continue my navy career. The Orthopedic Surgeon believes that they will make the decision to separate me so with that being said I have had several appointments with college counselors. I am currently enrolled in a business course and have been told that it is quite possible that I could graduate with my BS in business with a minor in accounting in 2 years .. less if I work on some transfer courses at the junior college.

Keith is gearing up to start the tedious work up cycle before leaving for deployment so I will be helping him getting ready to go as well as putting together a plan to work on things at the house and my craft things. I'm hoping that if I keep myself fairly busy that the time that he will be gone will go buy pretty fast.

Ok so back to this business class. We have a class project and I think that it will be super fun. We are writing business plans. Keith and I have talked about this off and on and I know what kind of business I am going to write about.. But I need your help... I am going to open a Quilt Shop!! And I need your help deciding what to name it. This is of course just for my class but who knows maybe some day I will be come a successful quilt shop owner and you can say that you helped me name it.. smiles.

Until later,
