Back to Earth

Yeah...I kinda fell off the face of the Earth there for a while......been having a rough time of it with the Deployment.....the first week or so I was fine...but then it really sunk in how long it really will be and I miss him soo much.....I've been going thru a bit of a depressive cycle...feeling lonely....not sleeping well at night( I've always had a hard time sleeping when he's not here)feeling exhausted during the day because I'm not sleeping all night...not wanting to do anything or go anywhere.....but...I've got to snap out of it!!! I need to get back into my life.....there's soo much I wanted to accomplish while he's gone ...and I wont get any of it done moping around...


I have been busy though......last weekend I did a craft fair with two friends...I sold a whopping $33...woo hoo.....hey one friends didn't sell one thing.....and the other only sold $4...so I figure I was successful!! LOL....








and Last Sunday we had our annual Fall Fun Fest at church....this is our 3rd year and it went VERY well....This is a really fun event for us all.....everything for the families is free...the games ....the food..the fun....we even had a raffle for two brand new bikes...and that was free for the families as well...we hire a band....and we hire a guy who does pony rides.....we have a bunch of little carnival type games....the kids really have a great time...and the turnout this year was great...considering it was raining nearly the whole time....parents and children stayed...



.I think this is my favoriite event ...a lot of our
Catholic Parishoners and the Protestant Congregation( this event is done in conjunction with the protestant congregation at the chapel) volunteer their time and talents for this and it's great to have us all together doing something for the community....it's great for the families because they can come out with their kids and spend the day ....all for FREE....



on Thursday Britt had her first concert of the year.....they sounded great ...she was a little disappointed she didn't get a solo....it didn't help that her biggest rival got it instead......but she's already practicing for the next concert...one of the songs they'll be doing is Amy Grant's "Grown Up Christmas List" and there'll be a solo for that one ...I Have the Amy Grant Christmas CD so she's been listening and practicing it every night..so she can ace it and hopefully get the solo..... sorry the pic is blurry but there's Britt in the center...

and here she is with her boyfriend and one of her chorus friends....who also happens to be an ex boyfriend...LOL








and I've made some more progress on my Deployment Blanket....although progress is now stalled due to the fact i've run out of unique sock yarn....I'd hoped to have each aquare be a different yarn...but may have to resort to a few repeats....I do have a pair of socks on the needles now so once those are finished I can use that...I also have the green and purple lorna's laces to knit up ...once i do i can use that...and i got the rest of my SOS winnings .... a pastel colorway sock yarn...so i can knit that up and use it too.....I have gotten two offers to send me yarn scraps...so i look forward to receivign those soon......I's liek to amke a ntoehr shameless plug for leftover sock yarn scraps....if anyone out there would like to contribute to my Deployment Blanket..I'd greatly appreciate any donations....e-mail me at maggiikatz@aol.com for my addy.....

Your 1st box is in the way... maybe there are a few sock scraps in there for you to use. :-)

Hang in there! My hubby just left yesterday (TDY) and I COMPLETLEY understand...I don't sleep well and usually the first few days for me are the roughest and then again somewhere in the middle...just know that someone out here is thinking about you and praying for you......:)
