Calling all knitters and crocheters

My sister just did a post about this project..it is awesome. If I could crochet or knit...I would be all over it....seeing as I have a special of my own. :) A lot of the state deadlines are fast approaching, but if you are a super knitter/crocheter you might be able to bust out at least one scarf. Here is the website: www.scarvesforspecialolympics.org/ If you can help, please do.

January is looking up

Well...we finally have a house, our stuff, cable, phone and internet. Both boys are in school and hubby will soon go back to work (it's about time....he's been up my tush for three months too long). It has been a long three weeks. It's going to take forever to dig out from all the boxes. I wasn't going to join any swaps, but A Swap For All Seasons offered up one too good to pass by..a mini-fabric collage. I even got Wendy to sign up for it. :) Fort Huachuca is going to take some getting used to.....it's in the 70's in January, but our yard is rocks. We have a tiny patch of "dormant" grass for a backyard, but a cool little courtyard thing in the front. I wonder if I can grow some citrus here?? I need some plants...soemthing green and colorful. Everything will have to be in pots...that is okay....that is what I've used the last three duty stations. I guess that is enough for now.....I am exhausted and hurt like hell. :)

Welcome to Arizona!

We finally made it to Fort Huachuca. Texas seemed to go on forever. :) The part of New Mexico that we went through went quickly. We made great time and go here around 4:30pm MT. We'll be in Army Lodging for awhile, but we are here and that is all that matters. I am going to miss out on some great swaps though...argh. What everyone waited until my household goods got picked up to decide to host some swaps?? Oy.

Man...we drove and drove and drove some more and we have yet made it to the "T" in Texas. Even Mr. Texas was getting sick of Texas. :) We had a good time visiting his adoptive family in Scurry this weekend. I will be happy to move on to another state though. Here's to hoping for New Mexico tomorrow.

Don't Mess With Texas

Especially, if you are married to a Texan. :) It took all day to go from Birmingham to Texas. It's been a really long day...time to rest. Happy New Year!!
