Hello to the faithful!

Hey girls!

I can't believe you still come checking on me.  You are too too too sweet.

I had a good long break from punching and I think maybe it is time to restart.  I pulled out my punches last night and had fun... which is a good sign.  I was horribly out of practice... which is a bad sign.  And I need to do a more work before I show you anything but I thought I'd get you caught up on my life before I got down to posting punch stuff again.

She who was "College Girl" and then "Miss Needs a Real Job" has one.  She's working at a Public Relations/Advertising company in a city she loves and having an awesome time.  While she isn't getting rich, she is gaining amazing experience, and getting to use her creativity.  We can officially rename her
"Career Girl".

My baby "She who still lives at home" is now the current "College Girl" winding down her freshman year -  happy as a clam (I guess clams are happy) with her degree choice, her roommate, her boyfriend and her plans for next year.

Hubby is upside down and backwards.  He is working in Australia, which is about as "other side" of the world as you can get from Texas (thus the upside down) And the down under folks are experiencing Autumn while I'm thinking Spring, doing Night while I'm doing Day, and driving on the "other" side of the road (thus the backwards).  He is in the middle of a two week trip home and it is great to have him for at least a little while.

So my nest is pretty empty, but the dog keeps me from total freedom to travel so what else do I have to do but start punching again and blathering about whatever pops in my head?

Thanks for stopping by and expect some punch ideas soon...

So great to see you back!! Perhaps on the 25th we'll see if/how many punches we'll be losing. I'm hoping for some NEW punches as I already have the ones that are currently being sold, and many retired ones too! Bring on the NEW!!!

Looking forward to your latest creations!
