What Happened to January?

Back to work. Taking down the "2008 Nettie and Friends Show". Paperwork. Frigid temperatures. A dead car battery. Game night with the gals. Out haunting Target to find school uniforms on the clearance racks for the kids at school. New students arriving. A NEW PRESIDENT! That's what happened!

I know I'm behind in posts and news from the "Nettie and Friends Sale" but let me say this: "The sale was FANTASTIC! Thank you!" Through your work, we have been able to purchase a lot of uniforms (yep off those clearance racks) for Maxfield. I was able to hand Marilyn (head nutrition services staff at Maxfield aka 'the lunch lady') a check to cover any hot lunches and/or milk purchases for the year. I met with the Kindergarten teachers and gave them $$$ to cover snack items for their kids for the rest of this school year (they are VERY grateful!) So the money is already out there doing a lot of good! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I'm starting some new knitting projects, hunkering down through these cold snaps and considering my yarn and fabric stash as insulation against the cold!

Peace to all of you. Be well.
