June Blankets

More baby premmie NICU blanket that I have made with a variety of yarns. Most of the same stuff I've been using.

One of my Facebook friends posted this on her wall and I copied it to my wall and received some interesting responses.

Something I've pondered over a lot. I wonder what makes some people so supported in everything they do or happens to them? A virtual endless outpouring for some folks. Where as there are some who are no less needing or wanting and yet no matter how much they reach out they are virtually alone. This doesn't relate to anything in particular, just a thought I've had over the years.

I've seen this happen in real life and I've seen it happen on message boards.

Here is one reply:
"Some people don't connect as well to others. Introverts no matter how nice may never have the QUANTITY of supporters, but they may have QUALITY support of a few. Maybe what looks one way to an outsider isn't true at all."

It makes sense to me. But I wonder why the same people receive the outpouring over and over??

And again, perspective is everything. We never know fully what is going on in someone else's life. Sometimes it's hard to not rush to judgement.

It's an interesting topic.

Leaving on a jet plane....

Sort of. But not until July.

We have a busy summer with some trips coming up.

The hubby has a business trip to St. Louis that he will be going on. We were invited along but I declined for the little guy and myself. Too much involved with all of us going away. Dogs to Kennel etc.

Then later in August the boy and hubby are going to Boy Scout camp. That should be fun for them. It happens just a couple days after I get home from my trip.

I've been going to see my cousin once a year. This is the same cousin that is my Aunts daughter. The Aunt I used to go see ever three months. Well, not just my aunt, but I really went to see my Grandma. But now I go see my cousin. We've always been close and we have fun. The little guy is old enough now to stay home with daddy without mommy, so I am going!! Hubby bought the ticket last night!

Then the little guy and hubby are going on a day fishing trip. Just a daddy and little boy thing, and I'm ok with that!!!

They will also go to hubby's brothers house for some fun. That's just a weekend thing and I will stay home with the dogs!!

So, in between our regular summer stuff, we have the trips. It's really not as busy of a summer as it sounds. My goal was to not be sitting around the house everyday and so far it's been good.

June 14

Not only is it Flag Day today but I have several friends who were born on this day.

So, happy Birthday friends!!

It's also my cousins anniversary. The only reason I remember is that I was taking care of my grandma so my aunt and other cousin could attend her wedding. My one cousin laughs at me because I remember these obscure dates in the family.

The same cousin needed to know when my grandma had started a medicine and I was able to tell her. So, a lot of times she calls me and asks me about family history. Most of the time I remember the date!!

Flag Day 2011

Today is Flag day, here is a link to more info on it. It's an interesting read.

I am officially a college student!!

I have a college ID card, and I have registered for my first class.

School starts in August. I am very excited.

Orientation was last night and I was able to register for my class.

I didn't realize how expensive college it, plus I will need to buy books for classes.

It feels funny to say I am a college student.

My little guy is done with school til fall.

There will be some sad changes at his school. One of the teachers left to be a stay at home mom. We all expected that but she will be very much missed in the fall.

The other teacher had been there for twenty-five years. She was also the principal. She will be greatly missed. The only thing I can say about her leaving is that it was handled poorly for the students and parents. It's a small private school and more like family and I know a lot of people are hurt by how it was all handled.

My husband is starting a different position at his job. No more rotating shifts, which will be nice in some ways. I think I will miss him having days off in the middle of the week!!

The hubby and boy went to an amusement park yesterday. Season tickets were purchased and I can't wait to go with them next time.
They played mini golf, rode bumper cars, rode roller coasters and many other rides. There is a water park there too, but they did not participate in that this visit.

That about sums up what I've been up to lately.
