I was lucky enough to be able to visit my family over Thanksgiving. I got to see my mom, brothers, and both daughters and one of their boyfriends and my grand daughter. We went out for Thanksgiving dinner, well my two daughters, mom, daughters fiance, grand daughter and my bf. I think we were the entertainment for the dining hall. It was a blast, the waitress wanted to take the afternoon off and sit with us, lol. We just had fun and not one argument so that was just way cool.
We got home to TX and well what happened one hell of a snowstorm. People here don't know about driving in snow so it is always a joy but then what else can you do for entertainment around here.
Well it is almost Christmas and it just doesn't feel like it. I can't put up a tree in my office because even though I have been moved in for a month it is just not finished yet. I am still waiting for a four socket plug to be put in. So basically I don't have enough plugs to plug anything into so that is so much fun. I am just hoping the new year is better. At least I have my Christmas shopping done except for one thing. Don't ask me how I managed to be done because I don't think I can give you an answer. I just don't know.
It is 60 degrees today and almost Christmas and I am working from home this afternoon. Well don't tell anyone that at this minute I am doing this and not work stuff.
I joined Curves about 6 to 8 weeks ago because my Dr told me I needed to do something other than cross stitch for my stress level. Well I will say it does work and I lost weight and inches. I have another weigh and measure day coming up hopefully I am still on track but if not I will work a bit harder for next time. I guess we will see what happens.
In case I don't get on here before Christmas let me wish you all a Merry Christmas and hope that you have a great one. I had better sign off for now and finish up one or two things so I can call it a day and Thanks for stopping by. I love you all and will be back soon!

I have had a strange couple of months but I guess I was due, lol. The worst was this past month and it was a month for sure. The first of October my landlord at my office came in and said...We are expanding our xray capabilities and I need my office space back by November 1st. I was like OMG WOW. So I had 30 days to find a new office well let me tell you that was no easy task trying to get this handled and I finally found one. WOOHOO! You would think. My office was supposed to be ready 4 pm Friday well guess what it still isn't done but at 7 pm last night I was able to get my furniture in but most of my stuff is in an empty office across the hall because my office isn't finished. It would take me 12 pages here to put down everything that happened and about one paragraph would be good stuff.
Also I go to the dr for a physical and I have to change a bunch of stuff in my life. I don't get call backs from drs about test results. I got one and of course it freaked me out but nothing that can't be easily handled but still. I have to change my diet, lower my stress level, like that is gonna happen after this last month and trying to move, lol. And my vitamin d level is less than half of what it should be so I have to take medicine for that and he isn't sure when I can get off that. If I don't get my cholesterol down I will have to try medicine for that as well. And the most stressful time of the year is coming THE HOLIDAYS!!! Oh well. And to boot I got a really bad cold that looks like it is turning into bronchitis. It keeps getting better and better, lol. On the other hand most of this is easily handled.
I am trying to make time to stitch haven't been able to in awhile and I am tired of not being able to so I am trying to rearrange things so I can. I also have to go to the gym drs orders but I have joined Curves and I love it but haven't been able to go for the last 3 or 4 days and find I do miss it alot. I never would have thought that would happen, lol. It is fun and I didn't think it would be but the dr told me I needed to join a gym mostly for stress relief and it does help plus it does already make me feel better. I am headed back there this week.
I am also headed back East for Thanksgiving! I am excited of course I am always excited to see my family and I have invited my son, daughter-in-law and grandson for Christmas here. I hope they can come.
Well I had better sign off for now. Gotta get some more stuff done and see if they got the electric sockets in at my new office. Keep your fingers crossed for me. I will check back in soon. I miss you guys when I don't update so hopefully will be able to do more again. Love you all!

Andrea is 9 pounds now but still on the monitor at least for the next month. Hopefully she will be off the next appt in September. I hope so. She is such a cutie. Aiden is growing so fast too. He is in 9 month clothes already but then he was a really big baby like his dad was so I am not really surprised by that. He is such a cute one too but then I could be a bit biased LOL.
It is supposed to storm tonight here but I don't think it is going to do to much. I wish it would because we do need it. Tim and Faith and Aiden are almost moved. Tim will be there by Tuesday so that will be nice. He and his family will be a bit closer maybe that means I will get to see him and Faith and Aiden. That will be nice. I haven't seen him in about 3 years give or take. I guess I will just have to see what happens.
Next month I am going to San Francisco. WooHoo!! I have never been there and am excited that I will get to go. Don has a business meeting and wants me to go. It will be a nice trip short but nice. Well I had better close for now. Need to eat some dinner. Thanks for stopping by and love you guys!

I am going to visit family in about 10 days. I am supposed to be able to see my grand daughter, Andrea. She is getting so big. She is 6 and 1/2 pounds now. Yay!! I do wish that I could see my grand son Aiden. I would like to see my son and his wife. They are supposed to be going to another duty station a bit closer to me so maybe once they get settled. We will see how all that works out.
I am also hoping to go see the new Transformer movie this week. I so want to see it. I really liked the first one and am told is as good. We will see. Well not much else going on right now. I am going to have to go and work for awhile at the other house, do the minor stuff like cover nail holes and such. Gotta put some of the globes back up. Had to put a couple of them through the dishwasher. They were pretty dirty. Unfortunately the renters in Don's house weren't exactly the best. Got the tile done and now have to do the carpet in the bedrooms. Then hopefully the cat pee smell will be totally done. We do have to pull the old carpet up and seal the concrete underneath. That is gonna be so fun. I will be so glad when it is finally done and we can get it rented. OK well I better go take care of a couple of things here while I have a few minutes. Hope you all are well and thanks for stopping by. Love you guys! Will be back soon.

Ok enough of that. Both Andrea and Aiden are doing quite well so I am happy about that. It is a nice rainy day here today but sitting here looking out the window as I post it is clearing up but looks like another storm is coming which is nice at least as far as I am concerned. We get so little rain that I do enjoy it for the most part when it come although most people here have a hard time driving in the rain. Lots of accidents and such. So I will stay home today I hope unless Don remembers we have more to do today of the minor stuff to prepare for the guy to come do the tiling. Well I think I will go take a shower and relax for a bit. I will post more soon. Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your continued reading. Love you guys!!

I have a couple of more photos. The one on the left is me, Melissa, Gretchen and Andrea. The one one the right is mommy and baby. Hopefully soon little Aiden will be here. He is being a bit stubborn. There isn't much going on just the usual. Work and more work. I had a meeting this morning and then had to go grocery shopping. Both of those seemed to take all day. I am thinking about watching a movie but not sure what I want to watch and I do have a rather large choice, LOL. On sci fi tonight is some bug movie but it is your typical sci fi movie. I am half ass watching it which is why I am looking for something else because it just isn't keeping my interest. It is only 8 here but it feels like it is so much later than that. I guess because I am so bored. I should try and stitch but I just don't feel motivated to and I haven't really felt motivated to do that lately anyway. Oh well. The weather has been decent here not like central TX with all the severe storms and such. I wish we would get a thunder storm but that isn't likely for a while yet. Soon it will be our monsoon season and then I probably won't want to see the storms.This darn cat keeps trying to walk on my keyboard. Jeez I don't think I need her help but I guess she thinks I do. Well I guess I had better sign off for now. I will update again soon and maybe next time I will have another grand baby to talk about too. Thanks for stopping by I appreciate it. Love you guys, talk to you soon.

I was watching a movie earlier and after watching half of it it started skipping and freezing so now I have to send it back to netflix and get a replacement so I can see the rest. LOL So glad that doesn't happen to often but when it does they are great. Monday a replacement will ship out and this one will go back and it only takes a day to get the movies. It seems we have a shipping facility here in El Paso so I get my movies super quick. Gotta love that. I put in Krull but will probably turn it off halfway through because I will be ready for bed soon. It has been a long day but I probably said that already. I discovered twitter not too long ago. I never really paid attention to it and then a couple of friends both sent me invites to it so I checked it out and what is so funny is that I am the one that follows some people, updates at least once a day and reads what the people I follow have to say. To me that is so funny because I am the one that was resisting it. Oh well. I guess I better go finish my laundry. Thanks for stopping by. I will update again soon and maybe I will have more baby news. Love you guys and I do appreciate the several of you that are here on a regular basis. You make me feel so blessed and loved.

Well Melissa had her little one. EARLY. Little Andrea Elizabeth was born on May 1st and was just 2 pounds 4 oz and 36 cm long. We had a few problems but here she is and she is breathing on her own they actually took her off oxygen fairly quickly. Poor Andrea got was a month behind in utero and she was 2 months premature on top of that but she is doing pretty good. Mama is doing pretty good too. We are glad she is here and doing well now we are just waiting for my son Tim and his wife Faith to have their little one. I am looking forward to Aiden Timothy joining us pretty soon too. I will let you know when that happens too. Thanks for stopping by and we will talk to you soon.

I can't believe the weekend is about over already. I am just recovering from the work week and it is time to go back. Well at least on Monday evening there is The Closer and on Tuesday evening there is Leverage with Christian Kane and Timothy Hutton. That will brighten up the week except for the fact that it is the season finale so I will have to wait for reruns and then next season. He is supposed to be coming out with an album sometime this spring so that is cool too.
I have been studying for my life and health license which it the ultimate in boredom but it will help. I will then add health and life insurance to my agency it will be a bit more rounded than just P & C stuff. Maybe then I can really get it rolling so to say and get it together. I am thinking I may get back to college. I have so much trouble with math and I kind of let it stop me but I am ready to get back into it.
Well I had better sign off for now. I have to finish folding my laundry. Oh the fun, lol. Well thanks for stopping by and I will update more in a bit.

I don't usually watch the news but last night it came on and it wasn't even the channel I usually watch if I watch the news and was I grossed out. Someone allegedly found a mouse in their Chinese food at a buffet where I like to eat. They of course showed video and stuff and ewww it was nasty. I will not be going back there. I also read on the website of the news station that this restaurant continually gets failing grades with the health department. I am disappointed and I am way too grossed out to even think about going back. Now if it is proven a hoax or whatever I may consider going back but for sure not right now. I hate to see this stuff on tv and it is sick. If it isn't true I don't understand why people do stuff like that and I do know that people do that. It is so uncool. If it is true that is just as bad, how can you make a dish and not see something like that in it. Do they really pay that little attention to what they are doing? That just sucks all the way around. Now the health department did do a unannounced inspection today and they closed the restaurant until they fixed the problems and it has been closed all day but on the news the inspector for the health department said it was just temperature issues and hand washing issues and like that but if that is true then why is it still closed tonight? Oh well I guess I will have to watch the news again tomorrow and see what is up next.
Other than that it is pretty much the same here as usual. Hope you all are doing well and thanks for stopping by. Talk to you soon.

I am sort of getting my stitching stuff a bit organized. I am finding the stuff I need a bit quicker than before, LOL. Now if I could only get the rest organized even a little.
I promised to get this posted and I did so I am gonna sign off for now but I will be back soon.

I found out last week that my son and his wife are having a boy. Yay!! I am excited and on the 6th of February we will hopefully find out what my daughter is having. I am so excited.
I talked to my mom yesterday and it has been so cold there. Her pipes froze, my brothers pipes froze and on his they couldn't find where and so he had no water for like 3 days and he called my mom yesterday morning and said I found out where the pipe was frozen, the water meter burst this morning. I tried to call her earlier but didn't get an answer so I am not sure how that all worked out yet. I will try again later and see. I hope it is all ok now.
I feel so good about finishing that project yesterday. I had been having a hard time getting motivated for some reason. I read in a blog that I follow about dying fabric. I think I want to try doing that.
Today I worked half a day. I didn't really want to go in but I had someone that was supposed to come in this morning. Of course they didn't show and it was so dead in my office I just said hell I am going home. My phone did not ring one time from 9 am to noon when I left. I got some stuff caught up but still talk about boring LOL. I bet it will be crazy tomorrow.
Today I got 2 telemarketing calls on my cell phone. I hate that. I don't answer my phone if I don't recognize the number. I let them leave a voicemail and then I will return the call. I do that because I hate telemarketing calls as much as the next one and usually strange area codes are just that. Sure enough that is what they were. I googled the numbers and it was no surprise that that is what they were.
It has been cold here. Not as cold as back east where all my family is but cold for here. In the mid 20's at night. When I go out and get the paper in the morning I have to wear my coat. A lot of the mornings lately too there is frost on the cars enough so that if I was leaving then I would have to scrape the window. I live in the desert. Oh well that's life I guess.
Well I will sign off for now. I have a Tupperware conference call with my "unit" in a while so I think I am going to get comfortable. I am really excited this month because I love the modular mates and they are on sale up to 50% off and some really great sets. I am going to put an order in for myself. I have been transforming so to say my pantry and it is so nice to be able to find what I want in there. If any of you want anything just let me know. Send me a message and I will get you info. With all the new stuff and updated colors and stuff they are bringing back I am just excited.
Well I am off to get comfy. Thanks for taking some time out and reading what I have to say I appreciate it lots. Love you guys!

I did talk to my mom yesterday and it is unbelievable the difference when I talk to her. She is doing alot better and sounds great. Maybe now I can relax and maybe get it done. I have my stitching sitting out where I can just grab it quick and even do a little at a time. I know this is short but I didn't want to wait too long before I put anything else down. I hope you all are well and have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by.

It was very cold here today. Winter is here. I also had federal jury duty. Oh fun and since I didn't get pick for a court case today I am still on call, for the rest of the month. With federal jury duty you don't just go one day and your done, if you don't get picked you have it for 30 days. They told us today that we would have to go back atleast once more. I had to be there at 7:30 this morning and it was in the low 30's. It has been awhile since I had to be out in cold like that here atleast. We had it last month when we were back east but here it isn't the usual. We had a winter weather advisory all morning today and it looks like we might get another one. I did take my stitching with me but couldn't really get anything done on it. For such a small project I can't seem to get it done, lol but I will! Well I have a Tupperware meeting in just a bit so I have to sign off for now. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all are well. Talk to you soon.
