March 1, 2011 –

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!



February 23, 2011 – My abc’s

It’s a post to get to know me.  The ABC’s of me:

Age: 37

Bed Size – California King

Chore you hate – Cleaning.  Not any specific thing, just in general.  If I could afford a maid, I would have one!

Dogs – I love dogs and cats.  Cats don’t need as much care, in the sense of you can leave them alone the majority of the day while you are at work and they don’t care.  You can’t do that with all kinds of dogs.  I don’t think it’s fair to them.  Here is our kitty in one of the best shots I have taken of him:

Essential start to my day – Coffee coffee and coffee.  I have a large cup of coffee in the morning at home.  Usually I don’t have more after that, but I do occasionally enjoy a Caffino’s latte!  Yummm

Favorite color – Purple!

Gold or silver – More silver than gold.  Although I like both.

Height – 5′ 8 I believe.  Not 100% on that.

Instruments you play – None… I’m not instrument inclined at all. 

Job title:  Customer Service Representative

Kids – I have a wonderful daughter.

Live – In California.  Don’t believe all you hear, it is not sunny every single day here!

Mom’s Name – Jackie.  I miss my mommy.

Nicknames – Bunches, Donner, DJ

Overnight Hospital Stays – When I had my daughter, C-section.

Pet Peeve – Wow, I have a ton.  I guess the first one that popped into my head is:  When someone cuts you off and then they don’t drive.  If you are going to cut me off, get the hell moving!

Quote from a movie – Baby Ruth?

Right or left-handed – Right handed.

Siblings:  5 older sisters.

Time I wake up – During the week I get up at 5:00 am.  Weekends I get up at 9:30 or earlier depending on what is going on.

Underwear – Um, I am not sure how to answer this one.  Yes, I wear them.

Vegetables you don’t like – Okra… bleh, might as well eat snot.

What makes you run late – Traffic!

X-rays you’ve had – Teeth, kidney stones.

Yummy food you make – Cheesy potatoes

Zoo, what is your favorite animal – Lions and Tigers and big kitties!

January 28, 2011

Okay, I’m back.  So for the stitchy news:  You saw Ruh, he is coming along nicely.  There is just so much black!  I do like how the other colors pop out though and once I get more done, it will continue to look better because I am doing all of the background (black). 

I haven’t worked on him at home for a while and I think I need to change that.  He is going to take me a long time anyways, and I really don’t want to make it even longer.  If I could just get a schedule down at home for which nights to do what during the week and then on the weekends do such and such it would be great.  However, I have not done that yet…

So this weekend is our DD’s 11th birthday party.  She didn’t want it after her birthday, so a few days before is fine.  Plus next weekend is Superbowl sunday, and that never goes over well for kid’s birthday parties.  She is very excited as her bff gets to finally meet her cousin.  I’m sure fun will be had by all.

Work was quite interesting today.  I had to go to a meeting with M and one other person.  First off, she left without me and when I got to the conference room she acted like I wasn’t supposed to be there.  It was an interesting hour and 45 minutes…  Jeesh I dislike meetings, and then top it off with M, bleh.  Other than that, it went fine.  No bad things really happened other than when I first walked in.

That’s it for today my pretties.  Have a great weekend and have a cupcake to celebrate our DD’s b-day!


January 28, 2011 – Why does it bother me?

I know that I shouldn’t let her get to me but she does.  And sometimes, I think she knows it.  So today, I have decided to push past all of the negative crap she sends out and be a happy person.  I mean, it is Friday. 

Today so far at work hasn’t been bad.  There are times when I enjoy her being pissed off at me, because then she doesn’t talk to me… kind of breaks up the day ya know?   But today I think she is just upset because I’m not upset. 

Have you ever tried not to let someone get to you, no matter what they say or do?  It’s not an easy task, at all!  However, I have noticed that if you put a smile on your face it helps, and she seems to be bothered by it as well.  Which doesn’t make for such a bad thing. 

I have numerous examples of what she has said or done, and not just to me, but in general.  And of course she never acts like that around our boss, because that would be horrid.  So when I have said something to him in the past, he is amazed that she acted like that.  Of course now, I think he knows what she is like, he has heard it from too many people.

So today, I put on a happy face and she can go suck on a tailpipe.  It doesn’t bother me that she is upset because I am happy today, in fact, I think it’s pretty damn funny. 

More later, but hopefully updates and such.  Oh and our DD’s b-day party is this weekend too!


January 27, 2011 Bitchfest

So today and yesterday have been interesting at work…  I was on vacation on Monday and Tuesday my DD was sick and stayed home from school.  My hubby already had plans to work at his moms, so I stayed home.  I arrived yesterday morning to M giving me, (or trying to give me), a guilt trip because she didn’t know I was going to be out Monday.  I had told her awhile ago, and sent the email showing it was approved by our boss.  It is also on our shared email calendar and on a huge calendar on the wall.  Please keep in mind that I also send out a “while I’m out” email to M & K and my boss before I leave the day before vacation.  Just to let them know what is going on in my areas.  So apparently I was supposed to feel bad… I don’t.  K comes in and she barely says boo to me, but is all buddy buddy with M.  Well this is new.  Hmm.  So yesterday, neither one of them spoke to me much at all.  Seemed a bit odd.  Neither asked about my DD either.  W/E.

Today I get in and say good morning, (M arrives early and is here when I get here).  She says nada.  K walks in a little later and says morning.  I say it back.  Pretty much a normal day so far.  Then I get that feeling like something is going on, and they both start laughing.  What’s so funny?  No clue.  Guess they were emailing back and forth to each other.  Thats new too.  (At least that I know of). 

M has this, hmm how do I put it, annoying way to try to prove that she knows more and is so much better than both K and I.  What she doesn’t seem to see is that it makes her look like an idiot.  We are both going into a meeting tomorrow, she doesn’t understand why I was invited…  do I still go?  You bet your butt I am.  Even though she doesn’t think that I should be in there and probably doesn’t think that I know anything about it.  Funny, cause I know quite a bit about it, probably why I was invited and have already been to some about the same exact thing.

I don’t understand why it is bothering me so much lately, but it really is.  I don’t want to bother my boss about it either.  I can say something to her, but she will just say that wasn’t what she was doing and then I will get payback.  She does that all of the time.  You call her on something and at some point she will get you back for it.  What I don’t understand is that when she does shit like that, it makes her look like she doesn’t know what the hell she is doing.  She makes so many mistakes, it is ridiculous.  You would think that she would get called out on them by our boss… maybe she does.  She never comes back from her reviews in a good mood.

That’s it for now.  I will probably get on here later today or tomorrow for an updated pic of Ruh.  He’s coming along slowly… a ton of black going on right now.


Oh and btw, my DD is feeling much better and went to school the next day.

January 17, 2011

There he is as of December 31st, 2010.  There is more done to him now, but I haven’t taken a picture yet.  I was just glad to finish the first page before the end of the year. 

I know I haven’t been out here lately, but it’s been a little busy at work since the beginning of the year and I have yet to do anything on this blog from home.  I just keep finding other things to do ya know?

So our DD is turning 11 soon!  Wow, time flies by so quickly.  I can not believe that she is almost 11.  It is just amazing how fast she has grown up.  She got to stay home today from school as it is MLK day.  She and my hubby are playing WoW, but not together…  She is doing good in school, although she did get in trouble recently for talking in class too much.  We took her computer/games away from her for 4 days.  She was not happy about that at all, but hopefully it won’t happen again.  I wouldn’t be surprised if it did, seeing as she is a social butterfly.  But maybe she will learn to get it under control.

We have all been playing WoW quite a bit, my DD and I have been leveling together.  She enjoys the game, and I am having fun teaching her the ins and outs of it.  Hubby of course answers anything that I can not, or am not sure about.  He’s the man when it comes to the game.  I am trying to learn as much as I can on it, but sometimes the reading on it can become quite boring…

Tax season is coming… bleh.  I have no idea what to expect.  Hubby’s unemployment has run out, so we now don’t have that extra income.  Hopefully we can survive, please keep up in your thoughts.  I’m tired of living where we live but we don’t have a lot of options on what to do about it.  I have so many rambling thoughts on it, it is insane.

My other cross stitches have been put to the wayside for now.  I haven’t stitched much at home lately, but I should try to get at least 5 hours a week at home on Ruh.  That would knock out more in a shorter amount of time.  My goal on him for 2011 is to have 4 pages complete.  I am really hoping I can get more than that done, but I really have no idea, so I will just stick with this for now.  Even at that rate, it will be 14 years before I complete him… that is way too long!

Okay, hope everyone who had today off of work had a great day.  And to those of us who had to work, I hope it was an easy day.


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
