This week's ramblings

My week was ok.
Movie night with my boys. We had pizza and watched 2012. I enjoyed the movie and couldn't stitch much as it kept you on the edge of the seat and you had to read a little bit when there were conversations in other languages. But there wasn't much of that.

I stitched on HAED SK Mermaid of the Deep. I also watched Lost and The Forgotten, that I had DVRd from Tuesday. Also listened to some of Heat Lightning by John Sandford.

was my day off from work. Did some laundry, went shopping with Justin. He wanted to get a new TV for his room. Watched 3 episodes of General Hospital while organizing my specialty threads. All the Weeks Dye Works and Gentle Arts Sampler Threads are done. I have to buy another photo box with indexed labels so i can do a Misc specialty thread box. Now back to the DMCs. I have more bobbins and had to buy another Jammer box. I watched Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice. Pic below of my week's progress on HAED SK Mermaid of the Deep.
Tonight I will be stitching on Stitchy Kitty St. Paddy's Kitty Moon.
I am coming down with sinus problems so feel tired and I hope I don't fall asleep while stitching.
Tomorrow I have a bookcross meeting and am looking forwards to that.

HAED Monday

This week is HAED SK Mermaid of the Deep. I made pretty good progress on it.
When I got home I read emails and then pulled out specialty threads to get them organized while watching General Hospital.
Then I got caught up on all the blog reading and even left quite a few comments.
I had laundry going and listened to Heat Lightning by John Sandford while stitching. Then House and 24 came on. Both good episodes.

Got into work and found out my hours have been cut. Not to bad and as of now I have Thursdays off. It won't last long though as it will get busy soon. I am also on call for Thursday until 8:45am. if I don't get called to go in then my day is mine. The main manager is still not happy at all that I take off time in October for the Pals Fall Fling. It is to busy to take time off then. My manager told me not to worry about it.

Well time to go to bed. Thanks for reading my blog and leaving comments. I appreciate it.

LK Boo Club Spiders

I got up and cleaned before sitting down to stitch. I pulled out LK Boo Club.

I stitched quite a bit on the border and then started Spiders. I am working on the web now which isn't showing up very well.
I stitched while watching NASCAR- congrats to Kurt Busch's win.
I finished listening to Dark of the Moon by John Sandford. I watched the movie Baby Mama, which was funny. I also watched the awards, which is nearing the end now. Did anyone pay attention to the Memorium for everyone that passed away last year? I did not see Farrah Fawcett mentioned.

The rest of the week I will be stitching on HAED SK Mermaid of the Deep and starting a new audiobook. Heat Lightning by John Sandford.

S is For Stitcher

yesterday was a good stitching day. Scott was tired and we went grocery shopping. Had subs for dinner.

So I sat and stitched on S is For stitcher. I listened to Dark of the Moon by John Sandford. Then I watched Saturday Night Fever, mmm John Travolta dancing.
I found out Smallville was picked up for it's 10th season. I am happy about that.

Friday 3-5-10 SAT

Last night was Friday night SAT with Let's Stitch blogger group and Stitching Sister's Yahoo group. I started Stitchy Kitty St. Paddy's Kitty Moon.

I would have gotten a lot more done but I was really tired and kept falling asleep with the needle in my hand.
I did watch some TV while stitching.
3 episodes of General Hospital and then the new episodes of Ghost Whisperer and Medium.

Things have been going on at work for 2 weeks now to piss me off. After yesterday and some lying by someone, I am thinking about job hunting. I know there isn't much out there. I love my job and my hours. No weekends or nights or holidays. There aren't many of those out there. it is also convenient for Scott to take me in when the weather is bad, since it is a short distance from my house. But I just can not take it anymore with the lying and laziness.

Workout Wednesday

A coworker called in sick and were busy today. But got out of work on time.
I decided to work out for 30 minutes with the Wii Fit. Now I have a question for some of you. Do any of you belong to Weight Watchers? I am thinking of joining online but wanted some feedback on it.

I pulled out my ipod to listen to Dark of the Moon by John Sandford then sat down to stitch on Christmas Angel, some more.I got the backstitching done from where I was last night and then stitched some more of the ribbon.

Tuesday Family night

I was having one of those days today. Before we all left the house this morning, I said " would someone start my car up?" Both boys were in the house. When I left they were gone and my car wasn't started. Then I get to work and I can't do anything right and can't speak lol. I get home , cook dinner and the boys and I sit down to watch tonight's movie. We watched Serious Moonlight. It has Meg Ryan, Timothy Hutton and Kristen Bell in it. Sounds like a funny movie. The storyline was good and love the actors. But the movie was slow. So when it ended I told the boys of this mornings problem of asking Someone to start my car. Without missing a beat Dylan said Someone left last night and he never came back home, that is why Someone didn't start the car. I said well then Someone is fired. In which Justin says. Someone does a lot of shit around this house so he should count his blessings that he was fired. LOL where do these kids come from? Dylan will be 18 at the end of this month and Justin will be 20. So I guess I should stop calling them kids and boys but that is what they are to me.
Anyways here is what little stitching I did tonight on Christmas Angel.

I am hoping to have a better stitching night tomorrow.
But then maybe Someone will come home and stitch some more on it for me :-)

I did watch today's episode of General Hospital. Pretty good.

March has begun

Where did February go? I can't believe it is March 1 already.

While watching General Hospital I was organizing GAST. I bought photo boxes and index cards and the alphabet tabs. I put an index card in each of the bags that my GAST are in to keep the bag standing up better. Then put them in the box. I have half of them done so am hoping to finish the other half tomorrow.

Then it was time to stitch. So I pulled out my ipod and started listening to Dark of the Moon by John Sandford. Then started stitching on Joan Elliott's Christmas Angel from The Cross Stitcher December 1996 issue. I started this a few years ago and the last time I stitched on it was march of last year. I also watched 24 tonight.
