Sorry for being MIA this last week everyone, but it’s been a strange time. I found out on Wednesday that my grandmother died while out with her senior friends seeing Wicked. It was a shock to everyone since she’s been doing well and it was so sudden. So, I’ve been busy with family things and such.

I did managed to do the Sears Tower Climb on Sunday morning. My time wasn’t fantastic, but I finished and that was my goal. Here is a picture of our team from the bank.  I raised $385 to donate to cancer research, so it was for a good cause!

I’m not sure I’ll ever climb those stairs ever again, but it was a good experience. I was impressed by all the firemen wearing full gear and doing it. I want to move to those towns!

I do have some knitting updates, like I’m almost done with the Basic Cardi, but those will have to wait for another day….hopefully tomorrow!

Congrats on the Sears Tower climb – Jim did that one year and it sounded tough! I don’t know if I could finish or not!
