This week's question and other things.

this weeks question is: As a kid, what did you look forward to most about summer vacation/break/holiday?

as a younger kid i relished the time not at school and also the time i would get to spend with my mom. she worked at home so we would spend the whole summer together. i also looked forward to staying up late since i didn't have to go to school the next day! i also looked forward to playing with my friends and having sleepovers. as i grew up and was in high school the main thing i looked forward to was staying up late and sleeping late! i still love those two things! i guess not much has changed!

on another note. i lost a dear friend of mine last week. she was a type 1 diabetic. she had a low blood sugar and passed out. her brother found her and did cpr. he got her breahing but she never regained contiousness. that all happened two wednesdays ago. her kidneys failed on thurday, and my friday she had developed a staph infection. she died saturday, june 7th. as her pastor put it at the funeral, "Courtney was full of life." she was a bright, loving, wonderful person. i know i will dearly miss my friend. i'll always remember you court!

on the knitting front there just isn't that much to show. i am almost done with that pink shawl and hope to post finished pics this week or weekend!

Sorry for your loss. It's awfully hard to lose a good friend.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend. Just always remember she's in a place now where she's no longer sick and in a place where she can always watch over you. My thoughs and prayers are with you, and her family and friends.
