Wow, I down loaded pics from my camera from this past week. I have some blogging to do and get caught up!! First, my DD plays on the local high school softball team, they won the class 1A state championship last may. This is the first girls team at the school to win a state championship since 1954 volleyball. We are so proud. The school however, failed to even make an announcement the following day at school. The girls received state champion rings as a joint effort of fundraising and the school sports club donation. Long story short, they were finally recognized last Friday at the football game. Way to go girls!!
Last weekend was quite an adventure. Saturday, Romeny Cycle Center was having their grand opening for their new building and Travis Pastrana was there to sign autographs. We are huge fans of the X games and of Travis. He is a Maryland boy after all!! We awoke at 7am to meet my sister at 8am to travel to Romney so we were one of the first 100 people, after all they were giving prize packs!! We arrived at 8:30am to a line waiting. A friend of mine was in the parking lot and asked if we were going to buy cycle? I told him no, we are here for Travis , he informed me that Travis wouldn't be there until 1pm. :(. Great, we did however get the prize pack for being one of the first 100!! We went home and went to eat at Denny's. The Harley Shop had a Jessie James built bike on display so we stopped to see it and the guy let the kids get their pic with it!! Way cool!! So at 12:30 we ventured back to Romney for Travis!! After waiting in line for 1 1/2 hours, we finally got to see Travis, he gave autographs and we took pics! He's as cute in person as he is on TV. My sister didn't get to see the Jessie James bike so after we saw Travis, we went back to the Harley shop so she could see the bike. We got back home at about 4pm. It was a long day, but very fun.

I'm feeling the pressure now. Thursday will be three months until Christmas. I will never have everything finished by then. My intentions are good, I just have bad habits. I have a bad habit of knitting for self and procrastinating. I have too much to do and not enough hours in the day. I was on Knit Picks yesterday and they have a tutorial of the fastest knitter in the world; if I could knit that fast, maybe I could get finished---NOT! I would still put it off and make excuses. I am about 3/4 up the back of my CPH that has to be finished in a month. I have one glove finished for my sister, one mitt of the four pair I need, the DD gloves aren't started, the DH socks aren't' started, I want to make stockings for my parents and my in-laws, the list goes on and on!! Three months? THREE MONTHS!?! Yea, right. I am going with my sister on Thursday I have every intention of getting some knitting done. We will be in the car for an hour each way, and I will be in the waiting room for an hour and a half; 3 1/2 hours of knitting, I should be able to get something done!! Oh yea, and the DD graduates in May 2009 and I have every intention of having her scrapbooks up to date before she gradutates. Let me just say, they are really behind. Her school one is only up to fifth grade, her regular one is up to 2002 and have to do her baby one too!! I'm soo far behind!! Why am I on here??

The challenge is on. My BFF called me yesterday, you see we get ourselves into messes most of the time when it comes to knitting and yarn!! We got the bright idea to knit Central Park Hoodies for everyone we know including ourselves. I made one for my mother-in-law for her birthday, I also have the yarn for one for my mother and my DD and self; She made one for her daughter-in-law, her daughters, and her soon to be daughter-in-law (she's quicker than me). But as usual ours got put on the back burner. I started mine in July, right before vaca, so I could work on it during vaca(that didn't happen). Ours were suppose to be finished to wear to the local high school football games(that didn't happen). So she calls me yesterday and NEEDS hers for next week's game,lol. I convinced her that we could get it finished by Homecoming (November 8), a month sounded alot better than a week! My problem is that I am suppose to also be making one for the DD who is a senior at the high school. So technically I have two to make by Homecoming!! See what I mean about the messes we get into. These were all suppose to be finished BEFORE football season so we could happily wear them to the games when it was cold,so now it's cold and there is a game!! I also have gloves to make for my sister, mitts to make for my two nieces, my husband's two cousins, socks to make for four nephews and ...... I think I'm in trouble. Does this sound familiar? Next year.....
