Busy little weekend

Well, I spent part of it was spent curing my son's flu bug, which now on Monday evening, my daughter has decided she'll get it too! Probably back to the Doctors tomorrow!

Then, I decided it was time....to finally put together my Senior's picture frame. I did order 8 x 10's, but I do prefer the smaller ones. We are talking 4 months to graduation! Yikes, I am so not prepared for this! He's made his decision, and pending any scholarship/loan/etc. problems, he'll be going to Maine Maritime Academy .

It was time...... It's a neat little campus, and although it is an intense course of study, and oh yeah, he'll be out to SEA for 2 months this summer, (one port stateside, one port anywhere in the world...need to get him a satphone..hmmm) I think it will suit him perfectly, and me, well you know any excuse to visit Maine! ;) (did I mention my little (well he's taller than me) man is going to be out in that big ocean....on a ship....)

Much knitting was accomplished by watching a Torchwood marathon. I had all but 1 episode of season 1 on my dvr, and was rescued by netflix. Up to episode 10, what a wild show!

Even more sewing. As much as I could handle when I wasn't being nursemaid, chauffer, cook, and cleaner. :)

Oh and something I don't share as often.......

The laziest kitty in the world! The end of our bed on Daddy's side...heh! I'm the one who feeds her the most, makes sure her mom cleans out her litter box, and she sleeps on his side! Well, it's all good, I move around too much, she'd fall off! ;)

it's all happening so fast! We have about a month before we hear from the last of the schools and only a little over 3 months to graduation. Can we stop the clock now?

4 months! Amazing to think about isn't it? Soon, you'll have your own craft room. ;) The kitty is too cute!

Yes, you aren't losing a son, but gaining an entire craft room and another great reason to visit Maine! I'm glad to hear he's made a decision and it sound very exciting.

What a pretty kitty!

Congrats to your little baby boy! Eeek, they grow up too damn fast! And hooray Maine!!

I think I've got the same color comforter on my bed!

You're a great mom, you know that :-)

Congrats to Senior! :)

No, see, she sleeps on his side so as not to disturb you. Out of respect for all the loving things you do for her. :)

I have to ask my co-worker, I think that's where her daughter is! They're just getting back from their term at sea and are loving it.

You're such a good mom. Even the cat knows it. If you get sleep, you can spoil the kitty more, so the kitty sleeps on the other side of the bed. Smart kitty.

What a pretty kitty! She's got the right idea. I hope the flu bug leaves your house soon!

Julie said...

What a gorgeous kitty; I'm not so sure she's the laziest kitty in the world though ;-)

Great pictures of your son. I hope his decision means you'll stop by York on your way to or from visiting him!

Hope the kids feel better soon!

It's wonderful that your son was able to get in where he wanted. Love the the lazy kitty!

Beth said...

Wow! Four months until graduation. My oldest is entering high school this fall after being homeschooled his entier life and I'm having a tough time with the adjustment. It must be really hard to think of him leaving.

Your kitty is beautiful! All the kitties in our house always prefer my husband and sleep on his side of the bed. I'd just end up kicking them off anyway.

Lauren said...

Oh wow what exciting after graduation plans. When I think Maine, I think chocolate covered blueberries..... yum.

Carol said...

They do grow up fast! Hope everyone feels better soon. Kitties is fickle, ain't they?
