5 on Friday

I have been such a bad blogger lately, and it seems like the last few months have been non stop purging, packing, shuffling, moving and selling!  There have been a few bike rides, knitting, and a quick visit with the in-laws, but honestly, I'm soooo ready to have this moving thing over and done.  Here's a glimpse at my August calendar which is chock full of lists and appointments still to come.  After all the work we've been doing to get the house ready, it seemed like ages before we got a contract on our house, and believe me I was getting a little worried.  Right now we are on course to close on 8/31, paperwork seems to be in order, requested repairs are being made, and we are moving things into storage at what seems like a snail's pace.  The closing for me will be a great way to end the month and the summer.  I know summer isn't officially over until the end of September, but once kids are back to school that sorta says end of summer to me!  With that being said, I'm getting pretty excited about fall.

So here are my 5 things on Friday:

Looking forward to: lunch with PJ, Andrew and Charlotte today, and the 1st pre-season game for the Falcons that Andrew and I will be going to tonight.  Just hope I can stay awake til the end!

Excited about:  Mary, Karen, Katie and Charlie coming for birthday knitting tomorrow.  Then another visit with Brenda at the end of the month.  Even though our new place is small I'm enjoying having company so much more now.

Planning to: knit a baby blanket for a co-worker who just told me he's going to be a daddy in 2 months!  I had best get to knitting!  They don't know what they are having, so I may end up doing something in a soft grey.  I also have another co-worker who has a baby girl on the way in January, but I got time for that project.

Need to:  block a finished shawlette and kitchener the toes on a pair of socks [then block].

Hoping that: the paving is finally done at our complex and there will actually be stripes for parking cause people are parking all which-away-grrr.

Happy Friday, and I hope the rest of your summer is filled with fun and excitement.
