I'm back...

...from a long and unexcusable hiatus. Things got crazy busy. My nasty heartburn got worse and I didn't feel like doing anything. My nasty heartburn got somewhat better, and then a lot better with the help of some new medication. Then I learned to live without coffee and could magically eat chocolate again without feeling like crap, and life was good.

I trained for and then ran in a 5K (If you read any of my previous posts I was training for a marathon relay, until 3 of my team of 5 bailed THE DAY BEFORE. Love you Jackie for still running with me!).
The BF and I took the great American Road trip and saw all kinds of cool stuff...




Then the knitting started...


...and the knitting...


...and the Halloweening...



...and the knitting of the Christmas gifts...






...and the buying of the new couch on which to watch tv, and lounge, and knit (excuse the knitting notions on the floor beneath) ...



...and the sewing...




...and my first time preparing Thanksgiving dinner for the fam...




... and the Christmas Treeing (I love this picture of him).


I went to Portland, Oregon to visit Jamie for my birthday...









Then came the Christmasing...






...and the doggy houseguests..



...and the snow. Oh the snow. It started on Christmas Eve, where we weren't quite sure we would make it home from Grandma's and might have to eat the stockpile of chocolate mints for survival. It kept up off and on until last week, at which point every school within a 50 mile radius was closed and we ended up with a cumulative foot or so on the ground.



Pair that with a recent week of temperatures at or below zero, and you've got some really nasty roads and a major case of cabin fever.

Today however, we are currently experiencing a balmy 28 degrees with predictions of a meltoff and sunny skies later in the week. Life is good, and I am ready to start new projects, reorganize, and hopefully experience the predicted Bachelor scandal with Jackie (because it's just more fun that way).

Onward and upward, and much more blogging to come in the near future.

Welcome 2010!

Oh, Cara, I have missed your blogging. (I have also missed rolly Jesus - he came to my birthday a few years back...)

Welcome back, and happy 2010!
