Where has the time gone??

Hello all of my bloggy friends!  It has been a while, I know...I think of you often.  I just can't seem to keep up with everything.  I feel like I come on here often apologizing that I haven't posted much, but life has taken over.  And things have been very busy!  No worries, I do take time to stop and smell the roses tho!

So in life, wow, crazy busy!  And many changes going on, priorities, dreams, goals, all taking a bit of a turn (for the better I might add!).  I will say tho, there have been days that I'm wasn't so sure why I rushed to grow-up!

Okay, I'll try not to make this a text-heavy post, some pictures will be included :o)

First off, we've been taking care of our little kitty and had to put her down. :o(  She was a wonderful little kitty, but got very sick, and nothing we tried seemed to help.  We did all we could, but I still feel like I didn't do enough.  I guess that's the motherly instincts kicking in...  We miss her like crazy and will love her always, but I know she is in a much happier place with no meds and no more seizures!  We love you, Abbi!!

Second off, what a wonderful summer it has been {besides the factor above :o( }!  A bit warm, lots of storms, but also some great days by the pool, spending time with family and friends, and relaxing!

Now, I know some of you may be reading this thinking, "Hey now, summer isn't over just yet!  Don't wish it away!"  Well, I have two days of summer left, then another big adventure in life will be beginning!

School....that dreaded word...but I'm excited for it!  Going back, who knew...  Mom always reminds me that I swore up and down when I graduated college the first time that I would never go back.  Well, I'm eating my words, and learning once again: "Never say Never."

It seems like just yesterday the decision was made that I'm going back!  Then school didn't start for a couple months, then a few weeks, now here we are...two days!  What??  Where did the time go?  I have recently caught myself thinking, "what am I going to wear on my first day of school?"  Wait!  How old am I again??  I was even excited to buy my textbooks, what?!?

Oh well, I'm ready for this next part of my journey and am going to make the best of it!!

And don't you worry, friends, I still have time for sewing in amongst everything else.  My girls and I still get together every Tuesday at Mom's to sew!  That's right, the 3 Young Chicks & the Hot Hen are still at it!

Dani currently has two quilts she's working between {Mom and I say she's now a true quilter because she has more than one project going!}.

Katie has been working on a couple smaller projects (a bag, coasters, hot pads, etc.).

And I am finally working on Mom's retirement quilt!  I know, it was supposed to be a surprise...but I'm just not very good with surprises.  I get way too excited!

So there you have it in a nutshell {or a quick post}!  I will still be posting, but I can't make any promises as to how often.  Just know I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth, promise!

Have a fabulous day!

Katy, glad to see you are blogging again. I started reading your blog right before your 4th of July post and then found myself thinking "where the heck did she go?" Congratulations on deciding to go back to school. Where are you going and what are you studying?
