I can't believe that I haven't posted in a week...things have been a bit crazy around here. We have just taken a huge step, one that many of you have already taken...Andy is going to retire on April 12th. After 35 years of working for the Walt Disney Company he's hanging it up. We are very excited but have spent many, many hours talking about options for pension, insurance, working part time as a consultant...it just goes on and on. We know that we're making the right decision, but WOW it's a bit scary also. Andy will be 58 in April...the stress of his job has increased tremendously over the past couple of years and we want to be able to enjoy his retirement years. So we are truly excited! I'm keeping the shop, I'm not ready to give that up. I just have way too much fun.
We were laughing this morning about how social we've been since the beginning of the year. Now you must understand we don't usually do much of anything. We are happy to just be home. Since Jan I've seen "Lion King", gone to Chicago for a week, we saw Jimmy Buffet this past Thursday night and this Friday we're going to New York for a long weekend to see "The Jersey Boys" and spend the weekend with Andy's best friend and his girlfriend.
So needless to say, I haven't gotten much sewing done here this week. I'm working on Judy L's Hour a Day project and took her challenge for February as well. I'm using 3 pieces of fabric in the project that I've had in my stash forever and didn't want to cut into because I love them. Well, I decided if I loved them so much, they'd all go in the same quilt. I'm thrilled to be using them...they will be great.
OK, I'm getting off the computer and going upstairs to sew for a while. Enjoy your Sunday!
