There are other things that have been going on with family (preferences for vacation time made very clear!), but I really don't want to bash my family here.
Sometimes I think once you get to a certain age, or have been married for long enough, it becomes much harder to find people to hang out with, especially to find NEW people to hang out with. What makes it even harder is to find people to hang out with as a couple. Speaking of couples, I remember running into something like this when I was the only one in my group who was single. Suddenly I was no longer worthy. Once I started dating my future husband I actually had a "friend" say to me, "Good! Now we can start hanging out again." I really shouldn't have been surprised when that "friendship" imploded a couple years later.
I guess I'm just feeling a little closed in. In High School and the first couple years of college (junior college) I had a large group of friends and a couple very close girlfriends. The ladies at work are great, but sometimes I wonder about getting too close to someone at work. I wonder if it could have repercussions later. Time to start expanding my horizons again!
Now moving on to more exciting topics! Pam has set the opening date for her new knitting store, Knitters Pallet!! It is opening on August 21st at Noon. The Grand Opening is going to be mid September. I've seen the inside of it and I am very impressed. There is a sitting area in front, and Pam has promised that there will be knit nights. The store is very well laid out and I love the store samples she has knit. I have a feeling that I will be spending a ton of time and money there! For those of you who don't remember, her store is in Lakeville at the corner of Cedar and 160th two doors down from the Kowalski's.
Since my brother's baby has been born it is now time to send them the baby bolero I knit. And I remembered that I forgot to put a picture of it here! So here it is.
I really like how it turned out, and I actually had fun seaming it together! I will also include a little outfit with it when I send it.
