Hope you didn’t miss me too much. I keep wanting to update this, but then I feel that I don’t have anything to update about. There’s really nothing all that interesting going on in my life.
I’m slowly making progress on completing my vacation scrapbook. My original plan, when we returned, was to have it finished by Thanksgiving. November came and I realized I wasn’t going to make that deadline, so I revised it to a Christmas deadline. Christmas came and went and I no longer have a deadline, but I just want to get it done. I’m also horribly behind with my regular 2007 album. So my new plan is to try to do a LO a day (or if I don’t finish a LO, to at least work on one) and alternate between vacation and the regular album. Hopefully I’ll get mostly caught up, since the winter/spring months are times when I don’t generally take lots of pictures that I then would want to scrap. If you’re interested in seeing some of my recent work, you can check it out over on TallyScrapper.
This past Saturday was my last skating lesson of the session. When I started my two goals were to learn how to stop and learn how to go backwards. I still can’t stop, and I can only kind of go backwards. However, I have also learned how to do waltz jumps, 3 turns (on both inside and outside edges), lunges, pivots, spirals, mohawks, crossovers, and half flips, to name a few. Don’t ask me to demonstrate any of these, because for the most part I have forgotten what they are. I might need a refresher before I can demonstrate. I think I’m going to sign up for the next session, because even though I’m not that good, it’s still fun. And maybe this session I’ll learn how to stop.

And speaking of being an Anglophile… assuming all goes according to plan, we should be out almost completely out of debt by next summer. We’ll still have one student loan to pay off, but won’t worry too much about it. At that point, we’re hoping to save for a couple of months and go on a vacation. And knowing us and our love of
And on that note, I bid you adieu. Hopefully it won’t take another month and a half between updates.
