Where has the time gone? It has been awhile since my last post. I didn't finish my sweater in time for the class reunion, but that's okay. I just have the sleeves to do. I got a bit mixed up and couldn't figure out how to finish the sleeves and didn't have time to run down to YDK
to get help. Cindi is on vacation this week, so I'll catch up with her next week and finish it.

I get to meet Shelly aka The Heathen Housewife.
I am going to the Minnesota State Fair with her on Wednesday. I can't wait to see her in person. We talked on the phone tonight and she is wonderful. It will be nice to check out the wonderful knitted items that have been entered at the Fair. We plan on eating our way through the evening. I will get to meet her beautiful girls too. I can't wait.

The class reunion was so much fun. I got to see many of my old friends and we had a blast recalling the crazy things we all did together in high school. I think that in these past five years, some of the guys changed the most. There were some there that I had to ask if they were spouses or classmates. It was weird. I saw one of my dearest guy friends whom I hadn't seen in 10 years. I got all teary eyed when I hugged him. We had some great times during high school as well as college. I'm glad I went. I was hesitant to go because I wanted to be thinner, but it didn't matter once I got there and saw everyone. We all have changed, it is to be expected after 25 years right?

Maggie and I went to the Nanny Diaries tonight. It was pretty good. I have decided that when a book is turned into a movie, I shouldn't expect too much. I really liked the book better, but we still enjoyed it. Okay, so off to bed for me. I'll post pictures tomorrow of the Packer sock and my class reunion. Happy knitting.

Love the new picture on the blog, we'll have to talk about King Cav spaniels - I want one too! Have fun with Shelly at the fair, I met her 4 years ago a Meg Swanson's Knitting Camp when she was pregnant with Julie!

I am soooo envious of you! State fair, going with knitting bloggers! :P I hope it was great and you better tell us all about it because I have to live vicariously through you for the state fair this year. . .
So you had your 25th reunion. . . did you see all the trees down in town? I was staying at the folks the night that bad storm went through. Had to stay home that tuesday and help clean up their yard. It was a mess!!
Thanks for calling me a couple of weeks ago! I was very touched and I meant to get back to you before now. I hope Chris had a wonderful birthday!
