Big News

Hi Blogger friends,
Eons and eons have passed with no sewing or knitting and only studying and more studying on these long winter nights here in the northwest USA. I feel so bored with myself some days I could just choke. I long to flit around in one of my 50's dresses and feel carefree and confident. I wonder what would happen if I showed up to Anatomy & Pysiology class as Sassy Lassie? I just giggle at the thought. I just might have to do it as spring rolls around. They all think I'm crazy anyway and my professor would really get a kick out of it.

I do have some rather big news.

I'm expecting!!!!!

No silly not like that. I'm 53 years young!

I'm expecting to go to graduate school.

I got my acceptance letter in the mail on Tuesday and will be going to Springfield College for a Master's in Occupational Therapy. I am beside myself with this new opportunity.

The course is two and a half years non-stop so you won't see too much blogging from me, but I will stop in once in awhile and share what is going on in my life, hubby's, Miss Moll Doll's, and Sir Braveheart's etc.

I'll catch you up a little now. Miss Moll Doll is now on the A team for Main Roller Derby The Port Authorities. In the photo, Miss Moll Doll is in the front row first on the left. The red head. Bea Nimble.

Sir Braveheart just passed the Sgt exam with his police department and will hopefully become active as one sometime this summer. Meanwhile he hangs out with Queen of Braveheart, Luna, Darby and his partner "Chase".

Hubby is busy putting an addition on our home We call it our "rooms with a view" as it looks out onto our beautiful back yard. It is really coming along. Pictures soon. Right now it is all muddy and snowy and one big yuck! But this old picture of hubby is not a big yuck so I'll post it.

Yesterday I backed my car into a tree branch in our driveway and took out a window in my car, so I am taking a mental health day from all activity and being a slug, thus the reason I am blogging.

I wish I had more photos to share of projects I am undertaking. Bloggs are boring and ho hum without photos.

P.S. I have other news too. Will share soon


  1. Great to hear from you as always, Lisa. Congratulations on being accepted into grad school! Looking forward to hearing the rest...

  2. Congratulations on your acceptance, I can only imagine how happy you must be, I was overwhelmed with joy when I got accepted, actually I started to cry hysterically. Sorry about the car incident though, I am glad you haven’t been injured. I hope you will get some time to post.

  3. We could have met?! Do you live near New York now? Because I've moved to NJ!

  4. Loved hearing from you. Glad you have found your calling. Samantha's OTs have been a big help. I'm sure you'll help a lot of people.


I appreciate each and every one of your comments. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with me.
