Brotherly Love

My big brother left for basic training for the army on Tuesday (I was going to include a picture, but since I've never asked him how he feels about pictures being posted on the internet, I figured it might not be a good idea. I also wanted to post pictures of my ridiculously adorable nieces and nephews, but for the same reason I won't). I couldn't be happier for or prouder of him. He has four adorable kids and a wonderful wife. He has wanted to join the military since high school but for one reason or another never did. He is finally doing what he wants, and in the process was able to choose a really, really cool career path.

Let's Go Blues!

One would think that by age 25 I would be a little bit more responsible one it comes to things. Especially money things. Apparently this is not the case. There is always a point in the pay period where I promise myself that from now on I will follow a budget and eat at home more. Then when I get paid I go to the grocery store in order to be more responsible and stay in. As soon as the groceries are put away, though, I end up deciding I'm too tired to cook and go out. *sigh* I am at the point in the pay period where I am promising myself that I will do better next time.

On what was meant to be a more cheerful note, I am a HUGE hockey fan. I 've gone to 1 pre-season game and two regular season games so far, and am hoping to go to a few more (which may be something I need to address in regards to the above paragraph). Since I am from St. Louis, of course I love the Blues. We are doing better this season, so I am REALLY excited.

Unfortunately, we just lost to the Blue Jackets 3-0 (this photo is not from tonight. It's from last Saturday, when we also lost. I swear we are doing great).

I will knit again sometime soon, I promise. It was in the 40's here today, so I am thinking about pulling out some stash yarn and starting a nice cozy sweater.

Yes Susan

I did survive Florida. It was great.

This was our view. It was amazing. It was a private beach, was made it that much better.

We had mimosa's every day first thing. Needless to say, I did not get a lot of knitting done on my vacation.

My laptop was out of commission for several weeks. That, plus no knitting, plus crazy life getting in the way, means no blogging. But the laptop is back, so hopefully I will have more blogs coming in the future.
