5 years?

My mom handed me the invitation to my high school 5 year reunion. Two of my former classmates are throwing a 3-day event to see what our class has accomplished our first 5 years after high school.

It starts out on Friday, July 28th with a "get together at the Firehouse Saloon & Grill" (which I didn't even know existed) for drinks.

On Saturday, July 29th the fun continues with a social hour followed by dinner at the Wildlife Club. Dinner cost $20 per person and includes BBQ por sandwiches, various salads containing mayo, cheesy hashbrowns and beer until the keg runs out. After that anyone can buy another keg or you can drink whatever you want to bring.

Sunday July 29th brings even more fun with a "Potluck at Deer Park where hamburgers and hotdogs will be provided...Tablewarewill also be provided." Significant others are welcome at all events and the kids can come to the potluck. I don't want to think of any of the people I went to high school with as having kids.

Just reading the letter shows you how small of a town Eldora is. I won't be able to make it, but I am not sure I would if I could.

This is the blanket I made for Tacia to give to her friend who recently had a baby.

This is the detail on the corner.

Another project I am working on. It will be a blanket of at least 10 rows like these two.

These are some of the items I have made for the Preemie Project. My mom knitted the hat in the right corner.

This one's kinda gross...

This is a little freaky!

Pandora Internet Radio

A co-worker of mine discovered this site and I think it is a neat way to do internet radio.

I have four books checked out from the library and 3 books on hold. I started reading 2 books before picking up the one I am currently reading. I will definitely finish one of them, but the other I am not so sure of. I thoroughly enjoy reading. I used to read all the time when I was in high school because I liked reading better than doing almost anything else and I didn't have any homework and studying was pretty pointless since it was all so easy. When I got to college I became to busy and only read something other than textbooks during the summers. Now I read on the bus to work, while eating lunch, on the bus after work, while walking from the bus stop to my apartment and before I go to bed. I sometimes even read at work when waiting for reagents to thaw or while something is incubating and I don't have anything else to do. The only reason I can get away with it right now is the bosses are out of town.

I can't wait to get to the end of the book to know how it ends, but then I wish I didn't finish it because the story is over and I have to find something else to read. That is why I love series; the story continues in the next book and you know exactly what to read next.

I think I am turning into an old woman. Three of my hobbies are reading, crocheting and baking.

Looking at it makes me hurt...

My neck x-ray that is. I went to the chiropractor for the first time ever this morning. My neck has bothered me for quite a while and I decided it was time to do something about it since I have a job and my own insurance and my mom doesn't have to pay for it. I am glad I finally went. I think I may be a little sore tonight, but I look forward to finally feeling better. I am going back tomorrow to see how the adjustments she made today turned out.
