This has been the shortest/longest summer ever

So today is the kids first day back to school and while on one hand it wasn't much of a summer because all it did was rain. On the other hand it was the longest summer ever because all it did was rain. We didn't get to do a whole lot of anything for so many reasons (many of which I will cover in the next few days I'm sure). I was at a point that the first day of school couldn't have come soon enough. I couldn't even think anymore. Having 3 growing boys is absolutely exhausting. I'm so ready to get back to some type of normalcy and one thing I know for sure. Next summer is going to have to be a little more planned out and structured and include at least one GREAT vacation.

Def Leppard's Joe Elliott slams 90's music

This is so, so true. The 90's music had no real lasting quality.

Gingham Baby Blanket

I took pictures of all the steps but they somehow got lost in my recent computer problems. I loved making this but it reminded me of why I don't like doing individual squares.

Mom's Mothers Day Afghan

My mom doesn't normally like afghans. She doesn't like the feel of the yarn that people generally use. So for Mother's Day I bought Homespun Yarn and made her an afghan that she would like the feel of. I'm not crazy about crocheting with this yarn because it can be quite unpredictable but this time I didn't have any problems. The end result was a blanket that I'm pretty sure my Mom loved.
