ALIVE, ALIVE, ALIVE!

Vikkie crawls out from under the rock she has been under and dusts herself off, straightens out her clothes and waves to everyone. "Why hello there all!"

Yes I still exist. I have had a crazy few months. I cannot begin to explain it all nor begin to tell you what has been going on. I had the busiest semester that I have ever had in my college career. The work was not difficult but the load was HUGE. But in the end, I recieved straight As. Woohoo me! Now I am doing student teaching at a great highschool. Charter school actually, with the best kids in the world. It is a lot of work but I love it. Actually I began in November, full time because the school was in desperate need of a Math teacher. My kids are creative and wonderful but a lot of work. I am also fortunate enough to work with a staff that is above the top fantastic. Its a small school and staff but this is what teaching is about. They talk the talk and then walk the walk. I landed in the right place for me. I will be done in May and I believe that it will be my job. I feel at home there so here is hoping.

On the knitting front, Yes I have been knitting. Not as much as I have wanted and needed to however. I actually did no knitting for about 3 months and made no handmade items for Christmas :-( . But I am back it. In the last month I have made a couple of unique scraves and am working on a cable hat for my mother. I will have pictures soon. There has been new yarn as well that I need to show off and also post on Ravelry. New books and magazines as well. Well I promise I will be back now regularly and post also. Probably not as much as I used to but regularly at least.

Drop me a note and let me know how you all are or just to say hi!!!!

Welcome back and welcome into the teaching fold. When the teaching is good, its better then ... well the nicest thing you can think of.

Good luck!

Nice to hear from you again! I had actually gotten concerned but did a little digging and heard that all was well but that you were busy. Congrats on the teaching. Fun and very hard work! When I checked on you I "met" Lynne who moved to my area just as I was moving away, that was kind of cool. I am now in India and mostly blogging about that at present...

hi! I have a question for you - I am looking up all things "fish" on Ravelry and came across your fish cloth - did you ever write up the pattern for it? I'm trying to make someone a present of a bunch of little knitted & crocheted fish themed things.

thanks!

You live. ;-) I wasn't sure, I thought maybe James was imagining you. LOL

Your grammar and spelling are terrible! I can't believe you're a teacher:(

Welcome back, I have been sporadic in posting as well. I am getting much more knitting and crocheting done as a result. I look forward to seeing you back around the forums on Ravelry.
