Is it just me or does it seem like yesterday we were partying like it was 1999 for realz? Everyone scrambling and worried about the Y2K effect. Which brings to me to another memory from the past: My mother has always said "the older you get the faster time flies" ugh. I would roll my eyes so hard I'm surprised they never stuck in the back of my head, which is another thing my mother loved to tell me. Sigh. She was right. She was so right. I'm sure she would be delighted to hear me say that.

Christmas is o-vah. Yay! I'm not big on the over commercialized how much money can we spend on things that people do not need, oh and btw happy birthday jesus holiday. Wait, it's not that I'm some kind of grinch. I love Christmas music, and getting all of those holiday cards (even the letters with! all! the! exclamation! points! when! talking! about! 2007!) and Christmas lights and all the trimmings. And if I could hear about someone doing this every day in December, I'd be all for this holiday. But all the talk of buying this and buying that and spend spend spend, really just kind of brings me down. I'd rather have Thanksgiving twice a year personally.

But. My dear and loving husband bought me the best gift ever. This is now stitching up magic at my place! Ok not magic but it feels like magic. It's like it can sew all by itself. I had no idea what I'd been putting up with in my old machine. Yes it was 20 years old. But a machine is a machine, right? Uh, no. This puppy rocks the house and blows that ole thing right out of the water. I guess R finally got tired of me cussing at my old machine. He did all the research and then went to way-the-hell-out-there-Queens and bought the PERFECT machine. Oh, how I love this man.

I've been thinking about starting another blog, not walking away from this one, but a second one. Yeah, I know what you're thinking, I don't have time to keep up with this blog, much less add another. And that is a very true statement. But in true Gemini fashion. I have another side. This blog was started in a moment of pure grief and frustration. It's a record of my road to Davis (and my life now) and a memory to Tess & Oliver. It's still recording my feelings and thoughts. And honestly I wish I had written more of it down, because this is really just a blip of the last few years.

Then there is this other side of me that is mostly happy. That loves to make things. And I've been wanting to record that stuff too. So we'll see, stay tuned. I just might get my act together and do it.

Here's to another year flying by at warp speed.
And to my new machine that sews at warp speed. woohoo!

I hope 2008 is a wonderful year for all.
