OMG! What a week. I feel like I need to shower for 3 days and then sleep for 3 more. This week was football camp for my ds and 2 nights of team evaluations, tonight is the last night. All I did was sit and watch and I feel like I have been through the ringer, it is H O T! My son has been amazing and I am so proud of him. We did vote this last Tuesday and am very anxious for November to get here so we can make some much needed changes. As far as stitching goes, I got my order today from 123 so I can start adding the beads to my WIP. I keep saying I am going to take a pix but I always seem to forget. I really want to complete it by August 1st. My son and dh head off with the scouts this weekend to do a 7 mile backpacking overnight hike. So, it will just be and my dd. I think we will go to the Stitch Store I have heard so much about and just chill for the weekend. I can't believe school starts here in just over 2 weeks. I remember not starting until after Labor Day. Once I get the pictures from football organized, I will post a few. Till next time - stitch on!

Current WIP

This is my current WIP. It is my first bead project. So far so good, it is a pretty fast stitch but I haven't started the beads yet. My only regret is I bought fabric that was not dark enough so my white is not showing up as much as I would like but I will live with it. I hope to get it finished before August 1st, ambitious I know. Thanks for looking. I will post progress pics as I can.

I did it again....

It has taken me another month to post here. I can't seem to remember to add posts to this blog. I think Facebook is just to easy to use and faster. I will post updates as I can but can't promise anything LOL. Spring break is in full swing for me and dd. We are taking care of our puppy who had surgery yesterday for the next few days and then will head out for a few days break. The guys are going camping next weekend so it will be a long girls weekend. We may go to the movies and do some minor shopping. I plan to pick up my knitting needles tonight and relax now that I have finished an entire sheet of paper full of "to-do's". Only thing left is dr. visit and car shop visit on Monday and cleaning the house tomorrow but I am looking forward to that.

You know every time I type a post I wonder who, if anyone is reading it. Even if nobody reads the posts I enjoy keeping up with the blog as much as possible. So, if you are out there - say hi and let me know.

I can't believe it has almost been a month since I posted something on here. It is proving more difficult than I thought to keep up with a blog. Between work, school and the kids schedule I am lucky to be able to check my email. I will continue to post when I can. I need to figure out how to update the tickers without having to redo them every time which is a big pain!

We survived January. We decided to go to Chattanooga for Greyson's birthday and had a good time doing whatever we felt like, although we did a ton of swimming at the hotel and played some games. We celebrated Allen's birthday with a BBQ dinner and a play with the in-laws. My father in law retired on the 29th so we had a surprise party for him and it was a lot of fun!

AJ's birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks so I am having to start the planning now. He wants to go to Stevie B's with 14 of his closest friends. I guess I need to get the invites this weekend. They are going on a 3 mile hike tomorrow with the Boy Scouts so I am sure they will be tired when they get back. He has decided to stay in scouts which makes me really happy. He is also doing really well with his physical therapy. I noticed he does better if nobody goes back with him. It is so difficult to sit out there in the cold waiting room and not go back with him but I know it is the best for him.

School is in full force both job-school and my graduate school. My classes this semester are more difficult than last semester which is one reason why I find myself spread thin. May can't get here fast enough. It looks like Ash and I will be going to Asheville,NC for a couple of days over Spring Break to see Biltmore and just chill. We have never been so we are excited.

Need to get to bed. I have a paper to finish tomorrow and a textbook review to do for Pearson Publishing. Hope everyone is doing okay.

It's Friday

and I survived the first week back! I can tell that the first part of the week is going to be very taxing, especially Mondays. Next Monday is a holiday and Tuesday is a furlough day so I am off for a week. Next Thursday we are heading out of town for Greyson's birthday. So, we have a busy couple of weeks.

We got our treadmill on Wednesday and are in the process of making room in the study for it. We just removed one of the desks and rearranged the furniture so now we get to put it together. I am so excited about finally getting one. It will be put to good use.

Off to take ds to physical therapy...

And we're off -

School started up again for me and the kids. Monday was my first day back and man was I tired when I got home. Of course I leave my house at 6:45 am and return to my house at 8:00 pm so I don't know why I would be tired?!? My classes at GSU are going to be a lot of fun, I just love being a student. It does not matter what I am learning - knitting, tatting, internet courses or whatever. My Adult Learning prof is from Oklahoma so I KNOW that will be a great class. My Ed Stats class will be a challenge but I am still excited about it. My classes at GPC are packed once again. I only have 15 minutes between all of my classes on M & W. Thank goodness the lab is only once a week.

I think we are going to try to go out of town next week for Greyson's birthday but only for a couple of days. The weather is just too cold to do much right now. We are thinking of going back to Chattanooga and maybe staying in the Choo Choo this time. We might just go to Savannah. Well I am fading fast, 6:00 AM is about 4 hours earlier than my body likes to get up!!

Still cold but a little better...

It is a little warmer today but Monday it is supposed to be in the 50's. If I can manage to stay inside till then I should be good. However, I think we are going to see a movie tomorrow if ds is feeling better.

Took down, well almost, the Christmas decorations today. All that is left it the tree. I went through 15 years of decorations and reorganized everything so it took most of the day. We watched All About Steve and I have to say was a little disappointed in it. Sandra Bullock can do so much better - Blind Side for instance.

My statistics text came in the mail today and I am slightly freaking out. I don't have the courage to really look at it. I did flip through it enough to give myself a panic attack. This will be a true test for me this semester. Spring is always the worse semester for a student and a professor and I am both so not sure what I have to look forward to.

Need to get some medicine in my son before bed. Nite all...
