Catching up

So I have been extremely busy, May was a very busy month. I had finals and then the day after the finals we all flew to New York for a very action packed 7 days. I didn't get to see near as much as I wanted to but I still saw alot. We went from Westpoint NY to NY City, saw a Broadway Play Lion King which was very cool. We went to Yale  in Connecticut, from Connecticut we went to Dracut Massachusetts then to Boston. By the time we got to Boston I was whipped, had absolutely no energy to do anything. Which was really sad.

We got home and of course after being gone for a week there was shopping to do and I had to deal with my car which was not working well at all in my opinion so we decided to trade it in and got a new 2016 Honda Accord for me and a 2008 Santa Fe for my daughter as we were sharing my car.

Yesterday, I signed the paperwork for my student loan to move forward to get my Liberal Studies Degree and my Credentials for teaching K-8th grade. Not sure why but am terrified. But I am sure it will pass once I start classes. I start my last Spanish Class next Monday, wish I could speak Spanish it would be oh so helpful, I remember some but not near enough.

I have also been working on several projects, my daughter asked for a table cover and I found some nice solid colors that seem to play well together that will go well in her place. Am working on quilting it now, I also have some cloth napkins that I made with the same fabric for her to match. I finished a quilt for her roommate and I think it came out pretty good. I am still learning how to control the speed on my Simply Sixteen Handi-Quilter. But as long as I keep working at it one day I will get there.

I am very happy with the progress I am making it is slow but I am doing much better on being able to get that allusive 1/4" seam and my borders are coming out smoother. And I am even understanding how to get nice mitered corners. I still have so much that I want to do and I know the next 3 years will be very busy for me as I finish my bachelors and I eventually I might even get a job teaching that would be nice after all this time in school.

All in all I have a pretty good life even if it is getting busier and busier.
