I really need to start getting packed. I am picking up the truck next week. I was counting the other day and realized that I have moved more than 15 times in my life. That's about every 2 years. Hopefully this time will be the last for awhile. Gypsy is sensing that change is coming. She's annoyed but she's a black cat and a gemini. She spends most of her time annoyed.

I've got a truck reserved and a storage unit reserved. I looked into getting a home loan today. Looking at condos in Helena. Kind of excited about possibly owning something. I'm so tired of renting.

I was pulling things out of closets and from under the bed a couple of days ago and discovered another rubbermade full of yarn. What was I thinking? I could start my own yarn store for sure! I know what I'll be doing this summer! After I get packed and moved, that is. :)

Place Title Here

Okay, so I'm new at this, kind of. Don't really know what I am doing. So here goes....I'm Amber. I'm a psychologist, educator, sister, aunt, pet owner (do we really "own" them), girlfriend, ex-wife, daughter, thirty-something, craft-addict, music-addict, book-addict, earth-bound dreamer. Does that cover it? For now it works. Gypsy is my kitty who keeps me constantly entertained and humbled. My rat, Remy, is mostly along for the ride. He is pretty mellow (unless there are yogurt drops involved).

About my many vices... I love to crochet, knit, bead, scrapbook, read, play guitar, play violin, sing, on and on....

About my family.... I am so happy to be moving back home to Montana where my family still lives. My brother is getting married in the fall to a wonderful girl that he will hopefully someday deserve. He has a gorgeous little girl that he definitely doesn't deserve. I love him anyway. My parents and grandma still live in Missoula too. I'm so happy to be going home. Finally got a job back home!

I have been away from Montana for 7 years. Following my career and gradually working my way back to the Northwest. I have enjoyed the ride but it's time to go home.

I am currently dating again. My divorce was a year and a half ago. Finally feel like I'm healing. My new beau is very patient...very patient....almost annoyingly so. He's a good guy and I probably don't deserve him.

Stay tuned for moving adventures and crocheted and knitted creations completed this summer. Oh, and pictures of Gypsy, the cutest and moodiest kitty in the world.
