Forced Changes

Getting your car smashed from behind forces your life to change.

Don't worry! We are okay! We just have a more interesting life now.

My brother and his family are moving about 1600 miles away. That forces another change in my life: not seeing my sweet nephew biweekly.

Has anything forced a change in your life recently?

When I was younger, I played ten years of softball. In the last year I was on my way to playing for a college team, but I had a shoulder injury and couldn't throw overhand farther than a few feet. Even though I was a pitcher, I still needed to be able to throw the ball from home to first in case of a bunt, but I couldn't even throw it that far.

My father has had similar shoulder injuries and so we decided to rehabilitate our throwing arms with a weighted softball his friend recommended. We've played catch every day for two weeks and I've already seen significant improvements in my abilities. It has been great to play the game again and to spend a little time with my dad every day.

Are there any fun activities you've put on the back burner that you'd enjoy picking up again?

Funny Book

I've loved Shannon Hale's books in the past so when I saw one on the library shelf I just grabbed it. I am currently reading The Actor and the Housewife and it is quite funny. I'm only about half-way through, but I've enjoyed it every much so far.

Shift in Interest

I feel a shift coming on. My reading has slowed and I think crafts are coming in the near future. I still have my 75 book goal this year, but since I am at about 55 books read, I am sure I can reach my goal by the new year.

I have two baby gifts to make and some other experimental projects coming up.

What are your favorite crafts and what projects are you working on?
