Hello World

Well, whoever is out there and likes checking up here... my life has been REALLY interesting the last couple of weeks. First we went out of town on a little family fishing trip--was really fun, and the weather was, of course, cold and rainy which definitely spiced things up a bit. Upon returning I remembered that my car registration was coming due and I had completely dropped the ball and left it to the last day.  I am usually the person who gets it done the first week of the month.  Don't really know what was goin' on in my head???? Blahhhhh... Moving on, I took my car to the Jiffy Lube only to find out that I had a bad wheel bearing... Great (that is what I get for waiting till the last day).  This was one job I hadn't planned on paying someone to do...not that I don't appreciate mechanics.  I decided that I would pick up the new wheel bearing and research the JOB.  After an hour or two of studying YouTube video's and tutorials(thank you YouTube and Google), I got the tools out and started to get my hands dirty.  I had a couple of issues with rusted over screws and such, my car is 11 years old, I guess it is expected to have rusty screws.  I got down to the Caliper screws and just couldn't muscle the metal apart, so I gave in and called my husband.  I needed some man muscle and a heating element.  Had to shrink the screw just to get them off. After a couple of set backs we finally got the car fixed:) and registration set.  That is when I noticed that my keys decided to disappear.  Just when I had given up on finding them, five days after I lost them,  I reached my hand into my apron to find.... yes you guessed it... my KEYS!!!! What a feeling of relief. 
On top of all of that, I have been obsessively reading the Hunger Games books this last week. I got through 1 and 2 very quickly and am now about half way through the third book.
love, love, love these books!!!  Just can't /don't want to put them down.  I highly recommend anyone reading this, give the books a chance.

So there you have it... that I my defense from keeping my projects locked away.  Don't worry, I have some really fun creations coming your way:)
