A lot has been going on at the Dropped Stitch household lately. My office moved. Again. This is the 2nd time in less then two years this has happened. And the crazy part is that I moved back to the last location I moved from. I'm right across the aisle from my old cubicle. It's crazy and I really didn't want to move back to this old location. Moving means that I have to drive myself instead of commuting with Hubbs so it costs us more and there are no coffee shops or nice places to eat within walking distance anymore. I didn't leave the office that much to begin with but still. It was a nice treat to run out and grab a cup of coffee with a co-worker.

After the trip to Alabama I decided to go back to school and finish my degree in Administration of Justice. I'm not sure that it's going to help me much in advancing my career but at least I will have finished. At this time I'm only two classes short of finishing and if all goes according to plan I should finish by the end of the year. I'm planning on taking one class during the summer semester and one during the fall. I'm nervous about it and scared that I won't be able to do the work.

Hubbs and I have planned another trip back to Alabama. We agreed to go back, rent a truck and drive all of my Aunts things back to California. We have to make a stop in Tucson to drop off a dinning room set to a distant cousin. I have to call her this weekend to make arraignments with her to drop off the furniture. We're planning to make some stops during the trip to visit some tourist sights and see The Grand Canyon among other things. After we get back from that trip we'll be headed to Oregon for a week too. It's going to be a crazy couple of months

In knitting news, I'm still working on my Thermal, my Central Park Hoodie and Celeste. I'm also working on a pair of socks. The pattern is called Rattle Snake Creek Socks. I've finished the first sock and am working on the second one now, hoping to finish it this weekend so I can move on to something else. I started these socks the day before I left for Alabama in February. I had to rip out and re knit twice. But now I'm finally making progress. I learned how to cable without a needle on this project. I love learning new techniques. It's so fun! Pic's soon!

Have a great weekend!
