I currently live in New Mexico with my boyfriend and beautiful daughter in The Retro Palace. I'm currently a student double-majoring in Cosmetology and Architectural Drafting. I spend what little free time I have knitting, crocheting, sewing, and almost any other project I have time for. I do occasionally eat and shower, but only if there is no knitting to be done.

Ugh, it's been a while since I've blogged. Sorry. Life has been REALLY hectic and busy, but really awesome, as well. A few weeks ago, The Hubbster quit his job. He really hated it there, and rightfully so. That, though, is a whole different story.

So, a few weeks ago, we found ourselves with one last check in the mail, enough money to get us through August, and no income at all. Kind of scary. We sat down and talked about what we wanted to do- should we both try to work? Should he try to find a job that paid as well as the last one? We struggled with the ideas a bit, then came to the perfect decision for both of us. We're both going back to school. We might try to find part-time jobs, but we'll both be full-time students at the local community college. It looks like our student loans will be able to support us through the summer. Monsterette won't have to go into daycare at all, unless we decide to work. All in all, we're really happy with it, and family and friends have been very supportive.

All of this has been a little stressful, but we're thisclose to being done with everything. I have very little left to do, just getting my student ID and that stuff. I'm officially a registered, full-time student. (For those of you wondering, I'm really close to finishing my classes for Cosmetology. Not what I want to do forever, but it's a great option for me right now.) I'm a little scared. A little excited. A LOT happy. We both are, and that makes life much more easy to deal with. So, until classes start on the 2nd, we'll been doing a lot of running around, filling out forms, and standing in lines. But it's good.

I do feel bad about not blogging. More for myself than for you guys, even though I do love you guys. Blogging was a lot of my stress relief, my outlet to the world, my place to share my life with whoever wants to read it. to put myself out there, and to take a moment every day to write or share. So, I'm REALLY going to try to blog more. Life is going to be crazy, but I think everything will be okay. I hope so. I'll try to keep you all updated!
