Well hello and say hello to Ruh while you’re here!  This is the latest update on him, from yesterday after my lunch at work.  Almost half of page 2 complete.  It’s slow going right now, and I really do need to set aside some time at home to work on him.  I really need the motivation. 

When I get home, I just want to eat dinner, get done with the showers and such and relax.  I mean, stitching is relaxing to me, but not in the same way as, let us say, WoW, or watching Netflix.  Plus I really don’t like to stitch when I ‘m tired, because I tend to have to frog it later… and Seeing as I am now to the place where I am skipping stitches for other colors (THAN BLACK), I don’t want to count wrong.

So K is on a cruise right now to Mexico!  I am so happy she got to get away from all of this cause she was stressing big time before she left.  But holy crap I miss her!  She is my buffer against M.  I have now made it through 3 days and I have 3 left… I am now the little engine that could!  I think I can, I think I can…

Hubby, DD and I got to see our squishy recently!  OMG it was great to see her!  I haven’t seen her in a few years and I just can not believe it had been so long.  She just started a new job last Weds and she is really liking it.  She contacted my hubby because they have a job opening.  Last night we went and dropped off his resume and he should have his interview on Friday.  I am so hoping he gets the job.  It would be great and I think he would like it for a change. 

Speaking of my squishy, her boyfriend is living with her and he plays WOW.  He is a big time player too.  Well apparently his computer stopped working at some point and squishy asked if my hubby could look at it and see if he could fix it.  He did look at it and fixed it right away, it was a fast and easy fix for my hubby and his awesome computer skills!  Squishies BF was sooo happy!  It was so cute, lol.  Anywho, so hubby has been playing a bit with him and we all made toons on his server.  I haven’t done much with them, but I don’t have one high enough level yet on the server.  My hubby moved over his 85, so that worked out fine.

Our DD is so big… and I don’t want her to grow up so fast.  I want her to stay small forever so that she needs me!  But she is growing into a beautiful smart girl.  I love her so much!

That’s about it for now.  I will try to get back soon for more updates!

Toodles!

My beautiful daughter on the night of her concert.  50’s Rock N Roll!  She looked wonderful and the whole show was awesome! 

So who is ready for Christmas?  I hope everyone is, and if you aren’t, I hope you are really REALLY close to being done.  Only a little time left to shop.  The only thing we forgot to get was something Bieber for our DD.  She doesn’t like him, so we were going to get her something just to torture her with it… (cause we are mean like that), but couldn’t find anything.  Apparently he’s the popular one!  (Just not with our DD)!  haha

Ruh is moving right along.  I have finished all of the black on the first page and have moved on to the next color which is:  black brown!  LOL!  You really can’t see much of a difference, but it’s there.  I don’t want to post an update on him until I have finished the first page, which I am hoping will be very soon.  Eeyore and Piglet have been put by the wayside for right now… until I finish the first page at least!  So much for having them done by Christmas. 

We have both been playing WoW, as the expansion came out.  Goblins!  Our daughter is playing on my account right now, as we haven’t gotten her the expansion yet.  But.. it’s a Xmas present, so she will have it in a couple of days.  I am enjoying the changes so far to the game.  I like the goblin race, and have been having fun running around on my trike!  lol

I have been away from here for a bit and I’m sorry about that, but life happens.  Stuff seems to get in the way a lot.  I usually don’t blog from home, but I might have to change that. 

So last night, one of my sisters, LM, had a get together at her house.  I have not seen 2 of my sisters for approximately 13 and a half years.  There is a lot of background there.  I don’t want to get fully into it, but will say that it was an interesting evening.  I enjoyed myself for the most part.  I just wonder what my mom would have thought about that…

Enough on that for now.  Maybe later I will tell more of the tale.

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!  Enjoy time alone, with your family or with your friends.  Tis the season!

 

November 9, 2010

So, yesterday was a big day for celebrations!   My hubby’s birthday was yesterday, he turned 36!  We started dating 19 years ago!!!  We haven’t smoked for 8 months!  See, celebrations all around.  We all went out to dinner and had a wonderful evening.  I love my husband more than life itself.  I would do anything for him and I know he would do the same for me.  We are very strong together as we have each other.  19 years is a long time when you think about all of the people who are divorced or separated or what have you.  In this day and age, being together for so long is a prize, and something to hold onto.  I cherish my hubby.

Onto other things:  Stitchy news:  Wow, I need to get busy.  It’s Nov 9th!  I still need to finish a page of UL, and Eeyore for 1 sister and a Piglet for another sister!  Jeesh!  What the hell as I doing?  Oh… sitting on my ass at home and doing nothing?  Yeah… that’s it.  It’s hard to get motivated some times isn’t it?  Lately it is hard to even get anything done at home, much less more than 1 thing. 

We cancelled our DD’s gym and my gym membership for 6 months.  It needed to be done to save the money for just a little while.  We are going to be working out at home on the Wii every other day.  I’m looking forward to it.

Stitchy news:  UL has got almost 3000 stitches into him, all black.  I am enjoying it still and I look forward to a different color, but that will be a little while longer I think.

DD and I are now reading each night, 30 minutes.  She hurt my feelings the other night, (one day last week), and read without me.  Even though we are not talking during those 30 minutes, I enjoy that time with her.  It is nice to sit with her and do something, no matter what it is. 

Okay, I think that is it for now.  Not sure when the next UL update will be, maybe later this week.  Have a good one!

November 2, 2010

And here we are, with my update on UL.  That’s a bunch of black!  Not much else yet, but as you can see, there is a bit of fabric that is missing stitches.  That’s for another color!  woohoo!!!  So glad I finally got to that point.  He is getting attention but not as much as I would like.  I didn’t do anything at all on him over my mini vacation and he just sat there.  I am going to try my hardest to finish the first page by the end of the year, as it is one of my goals on the HAED forums.  Not much else stitchy wise has been done, I haven’t even touched Eeyore.  Guess I need to get on that too… what the hell have I been doing.  Jeesh I’m a slacker!  I got to get crackin if I am going to finish all this stuff by xmas and the end of the year! 

Halloween was good.  DD dressed up as a witch and was very happy with the amount of candy she got out trick or treating.  Her cousin went as a dementor, (from Harry Potter) and he looked really good.  The amount of kids out was amazing.  I have not seen that many since we have been out there in the same area.  It was insane.  Hubby and I didn’t dress up and neither did T or R.  We still had fun and did a lot of walking.  Here’s my pumpkin (the first one) and DD’s, which I carved, (the owl).  Hubby’s pumpkin is the dragon, he did his.  I love the dragon, it seems noble to me, don’t ask me why.

Yes, we used stencils and it was our first time using them.  So, I think we all did very well.  I just love them.  There were a total of 6 pumpkins out front of my sister’s house.  They were all great!  I was told that we got numerous compliments on them, the owl most of all. 

My sister took Lucy, (formally known as Donkey), and she is doing very well.  The next time I get a pic update from her, I will put it out here.  We enjoy seeing her grow and getting to spend time with her as well.

So last night when lying in bed, my hubby tells me that I should just tell him all of the random thoughts that I get in my head.  I don’t know if that is possible.  I am constantly thinking.  It doesn’t stop.  But I was thinking of just writing some random ones down, and then sending it to him.  hehehe

That’s it for now.  I can’t think of anything else.  Bye

October 25, 2010

It’s Monday and the weekend, (as they always do), went by too fast.  Saturday we puppy sat for my sister.  We got to her house at 10:30 and left at 6:30.  Then we went to dinner with my other sister and her hubby.  We had a great time!  On our way home, my hubby said something that I agree with 100% and more.  It feels like we have been talking to them, (hanging out with them), for ever.  And I agree.  We get along very well and it is very comfortable to be with them.  We have numerous years between us, but that doesn’t seem to be a factor at all.  I like that and I love my sister.  I’m glad I have her back in my life.

My other sister, L, apparently had a bbq on Saturday.  All of my other sisters (and their families) were invited.  I was not.  I can not make her like me or invite me to things or even talk to me.  But I wish that I could be told why I am not talked to by her and I am ignored to the fullest degree.  I don’t get it.  My sister we had dinner with… um I shall call her TM, was invited.  She did not feel right about going when she knew that I was not invited, so she didn’t go.  My sister… TL, (with the puppy), did go.  That is why we were at her house puppy sitting.  When she told me where they were going, which she did the night before, it was like she didn’t even want to say where they were going.  Maybe she felt guilty or something, I really don’t know.  I haven’t talked to her about it since.

It bothers me.  I know that.  I have reached out and have not even gotten a rejection in response… I get nothing.  What am I supposed to do?  What can I do?  How many times do you reach out to get your hand slapped back before you stop?

Stitching news:  I worked on UL today and he now has 1600 stitches in him.  woohoo!  He looks like a black blob at the moment.  I will update soon.  I worked on an old (old old) wip at my sister’s house on saturday.  No work on Eeyore.

We haven’t worked out in a while, we are going to go Wednesday come hell or high water.  I don’t care… we need to get back to the gym.

I’m taking some time off later this week.  Hopefully it will be a nice mini vacation.

Our DD’s parent/teacher conference is Wednesday. 

So when do you give up?  When do you count your blessings and walk away?

October 12, 2010

Howdy.  It’s been awhile since I’ve been out here.  Don’t judge!  I have my reasons! 

I got my fabric back yesterday for UL.  He got 2 more rows of black into him yesterday.  I think he will get more today, but I’m not yet 100% sure on that.  (I might want to sleep at lunch). 

My last post, if you recall, was about how M had my fabric and was sick and I complained… blah blah blah.  Well I got kicked in the ass for that.  She didn’t come back that week and I was on vacation the week after.  The kick part: yeah, I was sick for 6 of my 9 days off.  WTF?  I’m still sick, it’s all in my throat and sinuses, but I’m here at work… woohoo.  It’s not like I have a fever or anything, I just feel like crap. 

Basically I am just happy to have UL back and in my hands so that I can stitch on him again.  It felt very good to get some stitches into him yesterday.  I think I will stitch on him today actually, (I don’t really need the wake up feeling at work.  As my cough/cold/sinus issue is worse in the mornings when I wake up and later in the evening). 

I got a new MP3, so I gave my old one to my daughter.  She is enjoying it.  Much nicer than the one she had before.  The one I got has 4 times the space as my old one, so I am just waiting to put some new music on there.  I enjoy listening to it while at lunch stitching.  It helps to take me away!  At home, I will listen to it if I stitch.  Sometimes I will listen while playing WoW.  (Yep, I’m a WoW player). 

Speaking of… so my hubby and I had a conversation the other day.  An MMO is a massive multi online game.  No where in there does it state that it must be a “graphical” game right?  So he was telling me that his first MMO was Asheron’s Call and I told him that it was Gemstone.  (Anyone ever heard of that game)?  He disagreed because he said that an MMO is a graphic game.  Which of us is correct?  Gemstone or Asheron’s Call – Which one was his first MMO?  I consider Gemstone my first MMO.  I played Everquest briefly, played StarWars Galaxy, (loved the game until they made all of the retarded changes).  I am pretty sure I played another one before WoW, but can not for the life of me think of what it was.  We had played WoW for a while with his guild, LoTD,  (Don’t even get me started on that), and then we quit playing.  We are now playing again, casually to level up some characters to 80.  (We already have some to 80, but want to get a few more up there and we are also making one for our DD).  The expansion comes out in Nov or Dec, I can’t remember right at this moment, so we are basically getting ready for it.  We enjoy playing the game and it’s fun to do together.  *Please understand, not all gamers are the same.

Not much else is going on.  I am catching up on all the crap I missed while on vacation.  .  DD went to her MMA last night but hubby and I didn’t work out.  We are still smoke free.  7 months as off the 8th.  WOOHOO! 

Later peeps.  I will post an update on UL around the 22nd.  I will be doing one a month I think.  Unless I have some major accomplishment in the interim.

August 31, 2010

And now we must say goodbye to yet another month in the year of 2010.  Goodbye!  Goodbye!  Goodbye!!!

Do you ever just go WTF?  I mean do you?  Cause I notice that I do it more and more frequently lately.  Have people stopped thinking?  Does anyone care about more than just themselves?  Does anyone have common sense anymore?  Seriously people!  Get a fucking clue already.  How many times must you look like a dweeb prior to getting a damn clue? 

Whew, where in the hell did that come from?  Anywho, moving on to happier things!

Albert is so close to being done it’s scary!  I don’t have my fabric for UL yet, and I haven’t received an email yet for payment either.  Not sure how much I am liking the company right now that I ordered it through.  I am going to email them tomorrow (as that will be a week since I ordered it) and see if I can get a response.  I am looking forward to starting it, but I’m also a bit scared.  It’s going to be huge!  But, I will take it one stitch at a time.  I got ivory fabric instead of white.  I’m hoping that the white won’t show through as much with that as it does on white.  Not that I get a lot that comes through, but on Albert I can see it in a few places.  I don’t want to do it 3 over 1 because it is too bulky.  (I stitch on 18 count).  I just want to get my fabric so that it is all ready to go when I finish Albert.  

I think tonight I get to start reading 30 minutes a night with my daughter.  Woohoo!  I so love that!  It lets me unwind and chill.  I get to do nothing and everyone expects me to do it!  Our DD is doing great so far at 5th grade, enjoying all there is to offer. 

Last night at the gym was nice.  We did our normal workout with cardio and strength.  It was a good workout!  Saw our trainer walk on the floor and didn’t see her again…  well I guess I shouldn’t call her “our trainer” anymore as she isn’t…  Oh well, it was a nice trip to the gym is all I’m saying.  We won’t be there Wednesday and not sure about Friday.  Other things on our plate…

I am pretty sure that’s it.  Not much else going on.  Work is good, M is out right now on vacation.  It’s busy but that will probably end tomorrow…

Later peeps!  ha!
