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!

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.

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!

I am a little slow on the updates lately and for that I am sorry.  I have been here and there and everywhere.  Mostly there!  haha

Here is UL as of today after my lunch of stitching.  My hubby has named him.  Ruh <~ yep, that’s his name.  From a song, ruh ruh like a dungeon dragon, I think the song is called.  Still quite a bit of black going on, but I have finished over a half page.  When I get all of the black in the first page, I will go back and fill in the blank areas.  I am thinking the large part on the right is a horn, but I’m not sure.  (My hubby pointed that out to me, no pun intended).  I am still enjoying stitching on him even with all of the black.  Hoping that filling in the color will help me not get bored with this as it does have so much black in it.  I am going to take Ruh home over the 4 day holiday in hopes of getting closer to finishing the first page. 

WoW expansion comes out on the 7th of December.  I’m looking forward to that.  I am enjoying all of the changes that they are putting into the game.  Last night we went running around looking at some of the changes.  We are going to have to roll some noobs when it hits just to play around with it.  (We both beta tested, but it’s not the same to me).

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and we go to my sisters every year.  I make my famous cheesy potatoes and take them over with us.  I look forward to it every year. 

So, on that note I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving.  If you go out on Black Friday, please be careful and avoid the stress that comes with it. 

I am thankful for my family, the roof over our heads, the food we eat and our good health.  (Knock on wood).  I am also thankful for getting to know one of my sisters again and having her back in my life. 

What are you thankful for? 
Do you cook Thanksgiving dinner or do you go somewhere and bring something (other than yourself)?

Again, please everyone have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
