    Life has totally kicked my butt.

    Left my husband and moved to a new town.

    My son is in cub scouts - a weekly adventure in overstimulation.

    My daughter is in girl scouts - a biweekly adventure trying to figure out when to serve dinner and still get the kids to bed on time.

    Speaking of... what is bed time anymore? By Friday, my kids are running on fumes.

    My boyfriend's farm kept me VERY busy all summer.

    His daughter's ...

    I lifted the head of the sewing machine out of the cabinet and found the model number and serial number for the machine. This is the machine my DD inherited from her Grandmother. DD did not have anywhere to store it so I told her I would keep it at my house for her. It's a lovely machine and seems to run great. Tomorrow I will give her a good wipe down (she's quite dusty and grimy) and see how well she stitches. DD named her after her grandmother, Carolina. I'll post a picture in my sewing ...
