So little time

First, an annoucement: Emma and I (Lisa, of course) will be in Cheyenne the 16th through the 21st visiting my stepmom, Bea. If you would like to get together and visit you can give me a call since I still have the same Wyo number or e-mail/write a comment with your number. I'll delete your comment soon after if you post your phone number so it's not floating in cyberspace. Now I feel like a secret agent giving instrucions for a dead-drop... Anyway...

Thanksgiving is quickly coming and that means Christmas is soon on it's heels. I realized this on Sat when Janelle and I went to a craft show with Emma and all the Christmas stuff was out. "Holy Cow!" says I, "There's so much knitting left to do!" This year I'm trying to knit most of my gifts and I'm doing alright, but I keep coming up with more projects and more people I want to give gifts to and it's getting a little scary. This morning Morgan eyed me and said, "Sweetie, I think you should just stick with trying to finish what you have. You'll be lucky to do that," when I showed him my newest cool project/gift idea. Doubting Thomas. I will finish them all!!! Hahahah!

Is anyone out there?

Seriously, does anyone even read this besides me? Am I simply typing into the abyss of the internet in vain hope of commual adoration of my lovely daughter? I mean, really.

Anyway, here's hoping.

Last Saturday and Tuesday Emma and I (and later Morgan, too) went up to Park City, UT to visit ::::drumroll please:::: my high school English and Geography teachers. Gary and Sherrie are married and such wonderful people that I feel so lucky to have kept in touch all these years. :) They both just retired and have been relaxing by hopping all over the country, and they decided the mountians sounded like fun. Lucky for us, we were able to meet up and explore the old town of Park City and share some great company and excellent food.

Next I was able to have a girl's night out at Angel's house with a bunch of other mommies and it was soooo much fun. We at fattening treats (love that Artichoke dip!) and had too much to drink. Thankfully, I was able to hitch a ride home with Kim. Hehehehe. I just remember showing off my painted toes at one point so I know I had a bit much of the strong stuff.... *blush* Ah well, this is as wild as I get these days so watch out!

Bit by bit we're making friends and settling in here and I'm starting to enjoy my small circle of friends. How long does it take before a new place feels like home? Do we ever stop missing the places and people we left behind? ::::stop and look up with a Doogie-Houser/Carrie-Bradshaw-like pause:::: Okay, now I can't finish with anything semi-deep or it'll just sound sappy. Bye for now!
