I think...*edited*

...I need to learn to knit. I have a hankering, and it won't go away. I MUST learn how. I must! There are too many wonderfully, beautiful things I could be making.

...that I am seriously addicting to MAKING things. I have a list of projects I want to do a mile long. I have the handmade fever, and I love it.

...Keith is worried I am becoming a hippy (and we use the term very lightly and in jest). My sister, Sarah, and I agreed this isn't the worst thing in the world. Project number one when we move is a recycling station. Number two is a garden if the landlord will let me. *That is not to say that gardening or recycling makes you a "hippy" we just tease about it here, because currently we do neither of those things. I am just trying to live a bit more environmentally conscious lately, and that is a good thing.*

...I miss my family SO SO much. I would do anything to have my sisters near me. Now when we are older, this is when we can be friends, and I think we would all be the best of friends if only we had the opportunity.

...it's pretty darn chilly here in Texas. Not as bad as the northwest, to be sure, but when you live in Texas you just aren't equipped in the wardrobe department to handle such cold days.

...the ladies at work had it right when they said you can never have too many jammies. They are our work uniform after all!

I think you'll be OK as long as you keep shaving your armpits. :)

I definitely understand the sister thing, as I'm sure you know. Isn't it tough when you realize that they are just the best friends you can have, but it would just be that much better if you all lived in the same neighborhood?

Ah, well. Such is life.

And there's nothing wrong with being a hippy. I'd like to be one myself - well, one that shaves her legs. Because that natural stuff is just ew. :)

You are very good at the handmade things - and I'm going to stay on you until you do an Etsy shop.
