How’s that for throwing in lots of useless info into one post?
Some reminders of things happening here:
- For the Color Palette Challenge, we have October, November and December remaining. If you had planned to do these and never got one done, plan to do at least one of these. It’s fun and it does get you out of your comfort zone.
- The Christmas Town Sampler patterns for October will be posted on Saturday, October 6. That will be the last month! These block instructions will be taken down some time . . they’re not staying up forever so please get them while they’re available.
- Quiltathon is this week – October 4, 5, 6 and 7. Work on any project you please but plan ahead — get some cooking down, clear the calendar and join us for some non-stop quilting . . or as much as you can squeeze in.
- Socktoberfest – Some of us are using Opal yarn but no matter what yarn you use . . it’s Socktoberfest and time to get those socks knitted. Winter is coming and no one wants cold toes!
As for Chad updates:
- This is his last week at his old job and he’ll start next Monday at the new one. He’s so excited. He went shopping this weekend for new clothes because he has to wear totally different clothes from what he’s been wearing.
- They’re looking for a good used car so they’ll have a second vehicle. They’ve been sharing his pickup (which just has the one seat) so they’re looking for a small SUV or “family” friendly car.
- They went to the new location this weekend and got some ideas on place to live. I’m going to go for a visit and Nicole and I will try to find a place. It looks like it’s going to be a whole lot easier to find a decent place than it was to find something in Nevada. Their current landlord said he knew some folks where they’re going and he was going to make a few phone calls and see if he could help but I really don’t think they’re going to have a problem.
- Nicole is so happy to be able to quit working and stay home with the baby for a while. She plans to go back to school to get a nursing degree but it will be maybe a year or so before she does that.
- I doubt they stay in the same location more than a year or so but in the short term, they’re quite happy with the happenings in their lives and it makes me so happy to see them so happy.
The only thing that would make me a whole lot happier is if they were to be heading to my area but that’s not where they want to be and I want them to be happy and get to their dream location . . and they will . . sooner rather than later.

There is nothing like a young person with a shiny now diploma AND a job. So happy for all of you.
how exciting this is! As a retired nurse. Please tell her I said to start now. I didn’t get my RN until I was 40, kids got in my way. She can always take a few classes like English and social studies that all programs require. Also that most hospitals are encouraging their nurses to get their BSN. So what ever she does (ADN OR BSN) know that the country is moving towards BSN’s in all hospitals. It’s a carrier I’ve never had a problem w getting a job in.

if they will be moving so much tell her to be sure she is in an accredited program with credits that will transfer. there are so many prereq’s now to even be able to get into school, those all are basic classes and will transfer anywhere…..but check!!
and yes go ahead and start…even 1 class a semester. she will feel like she is accomplishing something and she will be!!!! get started and don’t quit. credits are only good for so long if you quit. as long as you are taking classes, they are good………they act like anatomy changes every 5 years!!!
