Holy moly, I haven't touched this thing since July?!? Well, let me tell you what's been up:

Drew returned from deployment and we went to Hilo to celebrate my 30th birthday:

A friend from The Hawaii All-Breed Rabbit Club got me into orchids. Drew bought me this beautiful one while we were in Hilo:

I haven't knitted anything in quite some time. I got frustrated when I couldn't get my second sock to stripe up correctly, plus Sir Poops-a-lot (Munchie) bit into it and instead of ingesting the working yarn, he sucked down the yarn that was already knit. I took it as a sign and put the project away until I could stop being mad at it. I did find a styrofoam mannequin head like I'd been looking for to model hats at Party City during Halloween, so I bought it. Drew is gone for a drill, so maybe I'll modge podge the mannequin head tomorrow or something.

Seeing as how I have been unsuccessful in finding a real job, I began private tutoring. I have 5 kids, two of which are in the same family, which helps. The ombudsman from my ship emailed me information about getting certified to teach in Hawaii, so I am going to go to the session. I figure it can't hurt to look into it.

We are going to Texas in a couple of short weeks for Thanksgiving. It was much cheaper to buy tickets for that timeframe as opposed to xmastime. While there I hope to do the things I did not get to do last year. I miss the hillcountry and just want to drive through it.

Did I mention Munchie has discovered walking upright is pretty cool? Once he perfects it, there's a whole world of things for him to destroy.
