I did something really stupid yesterday...

See my poor car?!?!? That's right folks, the rear bumper is completly gone! It's really stupid because it was my fault. I was backing out of a parking space at the Lowe's/Target parking lot, and I didn't see a pickup coming into the parking aisle. Granted he was turning pretty quickly into the lot, but I should have seen him! The truck has a dent on the left rear quarter panel, and I have no bumper.

In my 10 years of driving, I have NEVER had an accident or even a ticket. This really sucks, for lack of a better word. Thankfully, this was minor and noone was hurt, our insurance will cover the damages to both cars, no police report was filed, so no tickets were given, etc.. but it really ruined my afternoon!

Today is a better day, Elisabeth has her Girl Scout Pinning ceremony tonight. Rebekah is practicing oboe with the choir for the anthem on Sunday, I am signing the same piece. She is reading French scripture and I am signing the scripture. I am very excited about participating in worship for World Communion Sunday.

Tomorrow, Rebekah has her Mary Kay debut, I hope it is a success for her.

I haven't gotten much knitting done these past few days. I am still plugging away on my Amble socks, I think I will finish the first one and then start on the next sock for the six sox knit along, maybe I'll get those done in time for the drawing at the end of the month. I started on a lace scarf in that pretty turquoise yarn I posted about a while back, I've gotten 2 rows done. I'm making up my own pattern for this, well I found a lace pattern I like and I'm just doing it in a scarf size, it should be really pretty. I will post a picture when some more is complete and the pattern is visible.

Well gotta go.

Hi there,
I saw your blog on the Six Sock Knitalong and just wanted to take a moment to encourage you since I am(was) a fellow homeschooler and Christian. We made it all the way through 12 years of hs and my daughers are now both juniors at Auburn University (WarEagle!). One is in chemical engineering and the other is in nursing.

You have A LOT on your plate right now, especially if you are working on your degree. I saw your link to the Sonlight Curriculum...we used that for awhile until I, as well as my chemical engineering daughter (who hates to read), got totally stressed out because of the amount of reading the curriculum required. Don't know if that is contributing to your stress but you might consider a 'modified' version of it. My other daughter loved the curriculum but she is an avid reader.

Of course...keeping up w/ knitalongs is stressful, too HAHA

Hang in there girl....the reward for both you and your kiddos is tremendous!
