Looking forward to a nice, quiet day at home with the family. Everyone is off of work all day today. The girls have recovered from their Senior Prom on Friday night, my husband is back from his sailboat race. Friday night was pretty good for me, though. Sitting by the TV, catching up on Game of Thrones while knitting my second baby hat for the hospital. My goal is two hats a month and I'm almost finished my second hat. After that, I'm…Continue
