Still Here

I'm here. I usually try posting more reguarly than this, but I've been busy.

I didn't finish the Chiton Pullover in time for my trip to Texas, but it's almost there.

I had a fantastic time with Charlie! His birthday was great and the whole trip was so good all the way around. My baby is now 22. Seems so young. I'm an oldy moldy and will be 24 in May.

For Valentine's Day, Charlie got me a new laptop! SOOOO NICE! It's perfect for gaming (better than his, lol). He also got me a gaming mouse. I can really tell the difference and am doing a lot better at Fallen Earth, the game we play together online. I also got the locket necklace he got me for Christmas. It only comes off my neck when I shower. I love it.

He liked all his gifts and was able to keep his .22 rifle at a friend's house (they weren't so keen on keeping an armory there, lol, so the 308 went home with me).

*sigh* I hate having to come home again, leaving my boy so far away. We did make the plans on moving, though, so I have an exact date! YAY! I'll be working my last day at my store 23 August (thank God, I hate that place) and using up my remaining vacation days then. Fly up to Michigan for Alicia and Ryan's wedding (Charlie's sis and future bil) on the 26th, then down to Texas for Charlie's graduation the 29th. Riding back to Georgia after that (will take a few days since he'll have his bike and 15 hours sucks in a car...) to load up my stuff. I think we'll be here a few days, then we'll make our way up to Michigan!!! That trip will definitely take a few days, maybe 3 or 4. Long ride and we'll have the critters. Dogs travel well, cats not so much. I'm soooo excited about my life up there and with him.

Ok, on a knitting note... not much has been done lately. I am knitting on my February plain vanilla socks here and there. Might not finish by the end of the month, but I'm not too worried over it. They'll be done soon enough. If I'd get off Fallen Earth some then I'd make some real knitting progress, but that game is consuming me for now. I really don't see how some people juggle a spouse, a job, social life, and several games at once. Well, unless they don't sleep and combine the spouse and social life with the games (I think I have more online friends than I do in real life friends and Charlie and I spend more time together online gaming than we do in person... sad, I know). Even when we were together in Texas, we were gaming together! Lol. Side by side, playing the same game together. But we love that time. Video game dates are really fun and something that we can share... something together without being all over eachother and stuff. They'll continue our whoel relationship. I'm never going to be that girl who gets mad at her man for playing video games all night... I'll be that girl who's up all night playing with him!

Yay! I'm going to Texas tomorrow! I'm leaving after work and driving throug the afternoon/night & should get to the hotel at around 0730 or so Thursday morning. Charlie's 22nd birthday is Thursday... I can't wait to see him & celebrate his bday & a late Alentine's Day with him. Oh, & it's soooo great because he has a 4-day weekend! So I'll actually get to see him for a full 4 days, which is so rare for us. The cats are coming with, but the pups are not (cats can be alone in a hotel room all day ok, dogs cannot).

Charlie sent me a vday gift & I really hope it gets here before I leave tomorrow. I'm excited to see what it is. I'll also be getting my Christmas gift from him this weekend... A nice locket necklace :) that's such a special present from him & I can't wait to wear it.

I'm taking all the guns & all the ammo I have at the house because we are going to the range with The Zombie Squad (a club thing Charlie is a member of; they are interested in survival & such). That's on Saturday. I can't wait! It's been a few months since I've gone shooting & this will be the first time Charlie will see his rifles from me in person (i got him a Stevens .308 for Christmas & a Remington 597 .22 lr for his 22nd bday).

Package :-)

This is my first SP 16 package! I love it...

* Peaches & Creme lotion! I love love love peaches (I even have a peach tattoo) and this smells soooo yummy.
* A skein of Knit Picks Stroll Tonal in the Gypsy colorway. Gorgeous stuff!
* The cutest little zippered project bag ever! I LOVE this and already have my current knitting projects in it.

Thank you SP for such a wonderful January package! I can't wait to see what February brings...

Progress on current projects... I'm working away at the Chiton pullover and have started on my February YOSS socks (another plain vanilla) using Jojoland Melody Superwash. The Ruffledy Scarf I started in the Studio June from Michigan is on hold for now. I need to finish the pullover first.
