Missing all of you

I dropped a couple of Yahoo groups and by what a difference in emails. I can keep up with them now. I also have time to get to the EZboards and am catching up on everyones blogs. If I don't post it is because I have nothing to say but I do read them.
I tried leaving a comment last night ona c ouple but all I got was eblog is down for maintanence.
I am stitching a model for Szulet creations and it is coming along nicely. I will have the last quilt block to stitch fro Twisted Oaks Desings, next week, I think.
I haven't stitched on anything of mine in so long that I miss them. I am so far behind on my SAL goals on Becky's BB and they are Christmas gifts so I need to catch up on them.
I watched 3 movies last week:
Broken Flowers - Dumb
In Love and war
Dark water

This week I am watching alot of Lifetime Movies that I had DVRd.

Reading- I finished Death on Demand by Carolyn Hart and I want to read the rest in this series. Now I am reading A Murderous Yarn by Monica Ferris. So far it is good. If anyone is in the US and wants to trade books please join readnswap at Yahoo groups. I get alot of good books to read that way.

DS#1 has a Track meet tonight at the school, next town over. But they are calling for rain, winds, thunderstorms. If they don't cancel the meet I don't know if I am going. I certainly don't want to stand out there and get sick.

I am here :-) and SBQ of the week

I have not fallen off the earth. It just has been crazy fitting Blog time in. I had to drop a coule of yahoo groups as I couldn't keep up.
I finished a model for Twisted Oaks, have another one here for SzuLet Creations and another will be on the way in a week from Twisted Oaks Designs. I also had 3 RRs sitting here so I finished them this week as well.
been playing alot of computer games. I bought some and some my parents had bought. been back into reading , just finished London Bridges by James patterson and also Death on Demand by Carolyn Hart. Am getting ready to read A Murderous Yarn by monica Ferris.

Do you do obligation or deadline-based stitching? Why or why not? Ifyou do, do you tend to get in over your head and why?

I do model stitching which has dead lines and I am fine with that but I get overwhelmed when I keep joining SALs and give myself deadlines. I can't ever keep up with them or my rotations. Makes me crazy LOL. I very seldom buy a pattern to do a SAL. I mostly join ones that I already own the patterns for.

Still around

I have had a pretty busy time lately and falling behind on posting to my blog and haven't read any of yours in over a week. Last week I ran the Middle school book fair. So now I am playing catch up this week. I have been stitching a model piece for twisted Oaks and took a break to stitch up BC April Snapper, which will be done today. Then back to the model piece.
I have 3 books up for grabs. They are registered with http://www.bookcrossing.com and you don't have to be a member to say you found the book , you can do it unanimously. I prefer to send to the US but will mail it out of the country for someone who would really like the book. I Have:
Someone To Watch Over Me - Judith MacNaught - paperback
Kill The Messenger - Tami Hoag - hardcover
Bag of Bones - Stephen King - hardcover

just let me know if you are interested in them. I had already posted them through my Readnswap Yahoo group. great group for swapping books with and for US members only due to shipping costs.

This and That

I am way behind on my computer time. I want to thank all of you who emailed me about my blog and my problem. So much has been going on since last week. so here goes.
Friday- No school as it was Superintendants Day. So we took DS#1 to get his learners Permit. But he is sick so has not driven as of yet.
Saturday - had my parents, sis and BIL, and in laws over to celebrate the boys bdays and mine. I received a serving platter and oils for my burner from the Body Shop. Bo Bice's CD and cash.
Sunday- went to church. DH took me to get new sneakers(bday gift) and we went out for dinner.
Monday - Friday this week I ran the Middle School's PTO Book Fair so I had to work that all week. I fit in as much stitching time as I could.
DS#1 went to the doctors on Monday and has a sinus infection, negative on the strep test. Today is the first day that he feels great. He has missed so much school since last week Tuesday.
DS#2 has started baseball practice and he is done at 4:30 and DS#1 finishes Track practice at 5 so I am at the school around 5 every evening to pick them up. Although DS#1 has missed practice all this week because he has been sick.
Today I pick up DS#2 from practice early since he has to work. DS#1 has to babysit after practice so will walk there. I pick DS#2 back up from work, 30 minutes early since he has a school dance tonight. I then have to pick up his girlfriend and his best friend. Then pick them all up at 10 pm and take them home.
Now DH wants me to run way out of my way to get subs for dinner. he can't since he has to work tonight. he can forget those subs and get the ones in town instead.
I have a breakfast at a church tomorrow for the women's group. Then I don't have any plans for the rest of the weekend. I need to get caught up on laundry and stitching LOL.
