I finished my CNA clinicals, passing with flying colors, and a day before my 60th birthday! My final grade was a B. I am happy with my grade, knowing I did my best. The Instructor’s comments: seems to have a lack of confidence at first, but gets it.”  And “breathe!” The written tests were ok, I just have to stop overthinking. 

I got roped into a celebratory  pizza party at knitting, so I picked up a extra large bacon cheese at Walmart. Ellen baked it at her house and we headed out. 

Surprise!!!

Mickey Mouse Club with Annette Funicello – Davy Crockett April 8, 2013

NEW YORK (AP) — Annette Funicello, who became a child star as a perky, cute-as-a-button Mouseketeer on “The Mickey Mouse Club” in the 1950s, then teamed up with Frankie Avalon on a string of ’60s fun-in-the-sun movies with names like “Beach Blanket Bingo” and “Bikini Beach,” died Monday. She was 70.

She died at Mercy Southwest Hospital in Bakersfield, Calif., of complications from multiple sclerosis, the Walt Disney Co. said.
Her legacy lives on in her many appearances on the Mickey Mouse Club TV program. The pretty, dark-haired Funicello was just 13 when she gained fame on Walt Disney’s television kiddie “club,” an amalgam of stories, songs and dance routines that ran from 1955 to 1959.
She left us with some great memories. Really~:)

Annette Funicello, then and now.

A Letter to my Daughter and new Son-in-Law June 28, 2012

To my new Son-in-Law and my Daughter,

What roads you have travelled; the high school days, the wanton joy of young rebels, daring to be different, the flights of random reckless abandon, the Goth chick and the Punk.

Jake, what a journey yours has been, you moved away and then a duty to your homeland took you a world away, fighting for our freedom, putting your life on the line, selflessly. We cannot imagine the roads you’ve travelled, the villages you’ve passed through, people’s faces, the likes of which none of us can fathom, but you came back to us, when we least expected it.

Natalie, there is a big heart in that tiny body, just waiting to be loved, to be appreciated, to be treasured. You deserve this day, along with every joy that comes with this new adventure. You’ve come a long way from the crazy mixed-up violin case-slinging little girl who didn’t know where she fit in, who wouldn’t take crap from anybody. You knew all along what your heart was telling you, but I was not listening. I was trying to protect you, to keep you, my last hope for a better tomorrow, afraid that by letting go, I would lose the last thing I had that was so dear to me, my Mini-me!

Now, as you plan your future, I realize that I’m not losing you. You will always be close to my heart and as strong as you have always been, your own person. Stand tall, Little One, and hold your head high, and you will exceed even your own expectations!

We celebrate your new life together with joy, with love and many blessings!

Love you guys,
XMomX

I just ran across the most KEWL online Yarn Shop- JL Yarnworks. They have the most ADOREABLE  Scrabble Tile Pendants, and I’m going to order one right now~

New Project:
Mary Jane’s Hat  as a test for a new stitch technique; I’m helping out a fellow knitter with this one.
I started out with #5 aluminum dpn’s but they keep sliding off, so I am going to order a set of  bamboo dpn’s in size 5 from JL Yarnworks; their shipping starts at only $3, can’t beat that!

I have the MJ Hat border done and am ready to change to Peaches & Cream 132 Earthtone ombre now :

Mary Jane's Hat - border

I’ll post updates as I get further along~

niters!
