What a Trip

Saturday morning, my family got news that my grandfather (mom's father) was in the Intensive Care Unit with pneumonia at a hospital in Arizona. So Sunday morning, my mom and I loaded up my car and left our house in Colorado at just past six in the morning and made it to Tucson thirteen hours later. It's been a crazy 24 hours too. I don't know exactly what's been going on with my grandfather, other than they're doing what he can to make him comfortable, even though he is asleep.

I'm going to try to update my blog still while we're in Arizona since I have my laptop and our hotel has wireless internet.

Thank God for caring friends and family who actually want to hear about all this. My mom and I have been on the phone so much. I think I'm praying more for my family than for my actual grandfather, but that's kind of complicated.

Until next time,

Holy Sheepskin

Wow, it has been way, way too long since I last posted. The entire month of may was totally crazy for me, but the best part was I finally graduated high school on May 29th! High school was a wild ride, and man am I glad it's over.

My mom, me, and my dad after the ceremony.

I've been trying to get some knitting in, but with my crazy schedule it's been hard. Erin and I went to Estes Park last week for the Estes Park Wool Market. So many adorable animals! I bought my first drop spindle and some gorgeous roving, in addition to a couple books. It was great. We also got to tour the Stanley Hotel, Stephen King's inspiration for The Shining.

Of course, pictures of these adventures to come!
