Good evening! Today has been an unsettling day. I couldn't settle into my spot sampler today so decided to start another stitch-a-long and another small piece that I can hopefully finish up quickly so that I have that needed sense of accomplisment. I know the ladies in Stitcher's Heaven Yahoo group will say I need to start a biscornu...and one day I will. But today is NOT that day.

I got the news a few days ago that DH will be traveling next week. I could give you a laundry list of the things that need to be done next week, but that would take too much room, and bore you to tears, so just suffice it to say that I need a clone NOW to accomplish everything there is to do next week. Maybe that's why I feel unsettled...or maybe not.

I know there are several out there that have a "military" background. I stated that I've moved 15 times in the last 25 years. That means that almost every two years I had to pack up my life and move (sometimes to a foreign country) and begin life anew. It was a stressful life and all I could think is that one day I would have roots and I wouldn't have to move again. they say...the grass is always greener over the septic tank. So when we bought our first house a few years ago I thought this would be it! And now, I'm ready to move. It's not that I WANT to move, or NEED to move, it's just that my mind and body are telling me it's TIME to move. I adopted an older couple many years ago that were retired military. She told me that after her husband had retired she felt the same way and would redecorate her entire house every two years and that got rid of the "itch". That's cost prohibitive at the what to do? Today I started two new projects...and if that doesn't help...tomorrow I'll start a biscornu! *Grin* I'll let you know how that turns out!
