It's been a long time...

...since -I last wrote a blog post. Mostly because I just don't have the time like I used to. Partly because Facebook and Pinterest keep us caught up on a daily basis.

 So, here are things randomly:

 Bri & Andrew are turning 18 next Sunday. Andrew is registered to vote and received his Selective Service card in the mail yesterday. I love that he's taking his voting duty seriously and is trying to decide which Presidential candidate will get his vote.

 Bri is a Senior. She has applied to college and in another month or so we'll receive her acceptance or pending acceptance letter. She has applied to our local Big 10 University.

 I took the summer off from work which was really a no-brainer because I would have only had one child. Two children moved away and the third comes on a school-year schedule. Due to the summer off, I "lost" the last child. So I currently have only my sweet 3-year-old but in another two weeks I'll get his baby sister :).

 I've done some additional sewing and quilting. Finally finished up the red, white & blue quilt from 3 (!) years ago. I cleaned out my stash & got rid of things I didn't like. The rest I cut into either 5" or 2.5" strips to make a scrappy quilt of an as-yet undetermined pattern. I find lots of inspiration on Pinterest.

 I've been walking/jogging since mid-May. I've lot inches but not a lot of weight so a few days ago I added calorie-counting to my routine. I hope it helps! It certainly makes me think more about the portions of foods.

We had a terrific vacation in July in Traverse City, Michigan. We believe we've finally found the area we want to return to every year AND the area we'd like to retire in someday!

 My mind is a blank so I'll quit before I'm done:)
 Happy end of October!
