I am getting my stitching ready for while I am gone. I am working on a gift for Don. I am hoping to get it done while we are up there. I will be able to do it and get it done right under his nose. Hehehehe I am working on a couple of things right now. I hope to get the one finished and most of the other one done. I am told it will probably snow while we are up there so that will be nice too. I will be freezing my but off that's cool, things even out. I get to see my girls and snow and I am a little cold, lol.
I even get a short work week. Two days and then off I go. I will see my mom for a couple of days as well. I did finally get my tree up in my office. For some reason it took 3 days to get it up and decorated, lol. Not sure why I just couldn't get it done. I tested the lights before I put them on the tree and they all lit and blinked so I put them on the tree and plugged them in and of course one string just decided not to blink anymore. The garland that I had on my tree last year that went all the way around the tree this year didn't and I can't figure that one out so had to go get some other garland. Oh well it is done and up and now I have to finish the one at the house. Got the tree itself up but still have to get the decorations on it. Hopefully today. Now I am off to go do my laundry. Hope you all have a good rest of the weekend.

Yesterday I finally got my first call with STARS. My trainer called and told me we had a scheduled case and he would call me when it was confirmed. He called me and then I was almost there and he called me back and asked me how many I had been to. I told him that it was my first and he said well we have to at the same time pick one and I did and he said you have to do it yourself. I was like huh!? Well I got there got started and he told me I did very good that I was ready to go on my own. I was like nope I need my other two observations and the one that I get observed. He told me that I did everything right and I could go on my own but I don't think so, LOL. It was an experience but I am psyched. It is a really good feeling knowing that you helped someone like that. And I didn't get lost getting to the hospital, LOL.
Thanks for stopping by. Love you guys!

I do have to start a quilt though. A baby quilt. My daughter is pregnant! I am going to be a grandma. It seems a little weird to say but I am excited. She is just about a month. I have been looking at baby quilt patterns and birth samplers. If anyone has any cute quilt or birth sampler patterns let me know. I am looking for the perfect one.
Melissa is having such a hard time with morning sickness. And of all things she is craving mashed potatoes, lol. I guess I should send her some. She doesn't care what kind just that they are mashed. I am so excited.

This is the finish I was talking about. I am looking at how I want to frame it. I want to put this in my office. There are some days that it so fits. I am getting ready to start one of the vermillion stitchery's snowmen. The January - Father Time one. I have gotten the stuff together except for the material. I amtrying to finish some of the other things I have as well. I am doing a little here and a little there. I am trying to quit being a serial starter. Looking at this picture I think I need to iron this one. I am very pleased with the way it turned out. I was talking to my sister the other day and she said she did a bookmark awhile back. I am hoping I can get her to finish it. She says she has to put a backing on it and maybe I can get her to try some more stuff. I guess we will see. I sure hope so. Hope you all like this. I do and can't wait to get it framed.

Also yesterday was my birthday. I had a nice day. Lots of peace and quiet and just vegging at home. Don got me a used laptop for my birthday. It is nice. I wanted one so bad because when we go away I need access to my work in case something happens and the second week of taking care of Gretchen because I didn't have one I had not internet access and couldn't even check my office email so when I got back here I had an ungodly amount of email, lol. I guess Don realized what I was talking about this trip. If he is with me well he has one and I can use his if I need to but he was back here the second week of my trip so it was crazy. Well now I can just take mine with me and if I need to get online all I will need is a hot spot. I am so happy. I am actually using it right now to post. I will probably get rid of my desktop if this works out like I am hoping. I will probably take my desktop to my office pretty soon I will need a second computer at my office.
Well other than that not much happening. I did get some stitching done but not as much as I had hoped to because I had so much going on while taking care of my daughter. One of the hardest things was when we got there we found that the refrigerator had gone out. We had to get that repaired and then the seal on the dishwasher was bad. It was just one thing after another. Oh well such is life I guess. Hope you all have been well and I will post again soon. Love you guys!!

Also the way things have been lately I haven't gotten much stitching done. I am still working on a couple of things but on Valentine's Day don told me that I never stitch anything for him anymore, lol, of course most of what I stitch for him he has just laying there but that's OK I am going to stitch a little something for his birthday which is coming up so we will see what happens. I am not going to say what it is because i do think that he occasionally reads my blog and if I put it here he would definitely read it, LOL.

Here it is in the frame. I think it looks pretty good. I have a couple more pictures I want to get hung up on the walls here but I have to get them framed. I can't find ready made frames for them because of the sizes so I will have to take them somewhere. Hopefully I will be able to get this office whipped into shape. I guess we will see what happens. talk to you all later!

I have another one I found that I am not sure why I didn't finish either but am going to be working on too. I am sure there are allot more too but haven't come across them yet. I am not really a "serial starter" but I do have some I should finish. And I will.
I know some of you are going to hate me for this but it has been in the 70's the last couple of days. It has been so nice and making everyone not want to be at work. Now watch it will be yucky this weekend. I hope not but I hope the weather gets better for you all back east. You have been getting some really bad weather again and it is just about spring.
Timothy is back and doing good. It is so nice to have him back here. I hope that I will be able to see him soon but I know for awhile he will be really busy getting back to work and readjusting to being back here. I feel better that he is back and will feel even better when his wife gets back as well since she is still over there somewhere. Well I have a few more things to do before I can go home so I should probably do them and maybe I can sneak out early. Thanks for stopping by, I love you guys.

As you can see I got Day 10 finished. 10 Lords a Leaping. It seemed to go pretty quick. I am working on Day 11. I have already had to frog a bunch in it though. Needless to say I wasn't to happy. I think I must have been kind of tired when I was stitching and thats why. I will be done with the 12 Days soon though. I have been carrying a small project in my purse for when I have sit around a wait. It is an Irish Blessing. It is just a small 5 x 7 project that fits nicely in my purse. I also have in my to do pile one that my DIL did. She told me about it and I mentioned it to my son and he said it was quite cute too so I checked it out at www.123stitch.com it is See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil Kittens. It is adorable and I plan on putting that one in my purse for my waiting around stuff as soon as I finish the irish Blessing one. I am trying to get all my I really want to do stuff done. We will see how that goes. And now for the yucky stuff that has been going on. Last Monday evening I was at Walmart. I got in my car to leave and a lady backed into me and took off. I could not believe that she did that. Well it just so happened that the Walmart security guy, you know the one that drives around in the parking lot, was at the end of the row that I was in. I went down to where he was and told him that person ran into me and took off. Well off he goes after her. She comes driving back to where I was about 30mph through the parking lot. No wonder she hit someone. I don't know if she saw the security guy chasing her down or what but she gets out of her suburban and comes up to me and says "my son said I hit you! Did I hit you, I didn't see you" its like really??? Well thankfully it was today that my car went inot the shop and the insurance company was great about it but what surprised me was this was a Major's wife and he was in the car when she did this. I didn't sownload the photos from that. It wasn't too bad really but still. It really is a small dent about the size of a softball and of course all you could see on her vehicle because those things are tanks, was some red paint from my Amigo. The reason I know they are tanks is because I used to have one. It was a good vehicle but didn't need anything that big anymore. My oldest daughter found out last night she is allergic to cocoanut. She was drinking a virgin pina colada and had an allergic reaction and the only thing it could be is the cocanut becuase she has had the other stuff that was in it before. Poor thing. She can't seem to win. She had to go to the ER but she is ok. They gave her some medicine and she is okay now thank goodness. The poor thing has way to many food allergies. Well I have to go for now. Thanks for stopping by to read my stuff. I love you guys.

I know so many people make New Year's Resolutions but I am not going to do it this year. I never follow through and so there are a couple of things I want to do and I will try and do them but I am not going to say this is what I need to do because then it probably won't get done so why set myself up for disappointment?!
Christmas at home was great. I had a really great time. I wish I could have seen my daughter Melissa but because of her job which she is really liking and doing very well at she couldn't come. I will make sure to see her next time. Hopefully Tim will be home in Feb. I am very excited and hope to be able to see him in the next few months. He was able to call his dad on Christmas Eve and I am glad he was finally able to talk to them. I finally was able to chat with him on yahoo we haven't been able to while I was back East because the computers I had access too don't have yahoo chat and so we couldn't. He sounded pretty good but I think something is up that he isn't telling me. Maybe he will I guess I will see about that.
It snowed the night before we were supposed to leave and we got several inches. I just kept watching the snow come down. I love watching the snow. I wasn't worried about being stuck but Don was. I was kind of like oh well if we get stuck and I know I should have been more worried about maybe not getting back here but I wasn't at all. I know that must be terrible but I don't really care. I wouldn't have minded staying but on the other hand I know I needed to get back to my office which I will be in tomorrow. Oh joy, lol.
Well other than all that not much is happening so I will go for now. Hope you all had a good New Year's Eve. Love you guys!!!
