My plate is a little less full...

Well, Robert's hockey season is over - but they did go down with a fight. The team played a good game on Saturday evening, which was the Semi-Finals between them, the San Jose Jr. Sharks from Northern California, and the LA Selects, from Southern California. I guess it could have been dubed the "Civil War" of the Pacific District Championship weekend. They lost with a score of 4-3.

While I have a lot of feelings and thoughts about how the game was played, I will not bore you with too much or write too much (for the fear the hockey-idiots will stalk my blog again and lift what I say off, only to manipulate my words in their mentally-sick way and post on a hockey forum adding to the poison they love to spread). Let's just say, they could have won the game if they played as a team...working together...and leave it at that.

There are some finishing touches to both the Pacific District Championship and the hockey season that I have to complete - basically submitting an expense report for the items I purchased for the PDC...and cleaning up a few issues from the hockey season. So, with Robert done for a few weeks he is looking into the school track team, which already started their season. He is planning to talk with the coach to make sure that he can join in as well as discuss some conflicts that will arrise in April as the Spring/Summer hockey clinics start up.

Matthew's season is still going on - although the way his team is classified, his will just continue through the end of the season and skate into the Spring/Summer hockey activities.

Well enough about hockey - on to stitching...
With time opening up for other activities I was able to put the last stitch into Sharon's ornament (for the Ornament Swap) and will make time this coming weekend to finish it up. With that completed, I was able  to pull out Family Sampler and work on that a little last night. It felt good to sit and stitch on it. I didn't get too far...and I still do not have any batteries for the camera. But I will make sure to get a photo of it's progress posted sometime this week. My goal was to have Family Sampler stitched before April 7 - which is the date of my wedding anniversary. This year we will be celebration number 20 - wow. Well, I have exactly one month...there is still time to get it done...definitely a good challenge!

Well, time to sign off. Until next time, remember...

Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch Often!

I know you can get your family sampler completed in the month now that your time is almost freed up, somewhat sorta anyway.
I can't wait to see the pictures of your finish.
As always
Be always in stitches.

I'm sorry that your son's hockey season is over, but I hope that means that you will have a lot of time for stitching now. :)
