It got me! The creepin’ crud that was going around the office just before we left for our Holidays got me. Unfortunately, I wasn’t worth the words on this page last week. But all my work was due to the Corporate Office, so, I went to work. Finally took half a day on Friday, and yeah I went home and slept. . . and slept.

But ya know. . . .

Caryn’s birthday was yesterday!!! She turned the big 18! OH WOW! No more kiddos at this house and that’s the truth. So, here’s the Birthday girl and her doggy:

Jake is everybody’s dog, he’s not picky, and we all love him to pieces. Bailey on the other hand is partial to Caryn and Chris. So, there you go.

We went to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch, since we can never seem to time it right to get there for dinner without a 2 hour wait. We brought the family, and her best friend, Whittney. She got a fabulous camera (Sony W-55) for her present, and more ice cream cake for dinner – Lord, we were so full! I think sometimes she still feels like it should be more of a party, but how do you do that? Well, in the end, I think she had a good birthday.

Bryan goes back to UK today, and it’s been told that Caryn has decided she wants to go to UK next year. So, Mama will need to work for at least a year and a half I think to keep them both there for the next year and a half! Who wants to retire anyway? Naw- I really don’t want to retire, I just want to do something a little more fun than spend 9-10 hours a day looking at numbers for people that don’t understand numbers! Maybe a fiber shop? With yarn? Well, you know I did get my back room cleaned up which starts all these thoughts –

Ok, enough dreaming! You know, when I’m sick, I spin. . . here is one 4oz bump of Goblin Eyes:
And here is another:

These came out so very differently, that I think I have no choice but to ply from the ball – arrgh! So, you should see that next week. . .

Mama is still feeling funky, so Nitro says Bye till next week! (Oh what a gorgeous cat!)
