HAED and Halloween

So where do I start since my last post. Thursday I got out of work at noon, went home to do some laundry and do things online before going to WW. BIG change of plans. Dylan called at 2:30 and said he was on his way home, from PA, and his car had smoke coming out of it. He was an hour from his apartment but was going to try and make it home. Not to long after that his car died, transmission went. We just put in almost 2 grand to keep this car running and with new struts. Hoping it would last him til December. No such luck. So I had to go and get him. 5 hours later and signing the title and giving the car to the tow truck company, because we had no way to get it back here, Dylan starts driving us here. We didn't get home til 3:30am Friday. No sleep. I called into work and explained the situation and needing to see if we could get a loan and I had things to do at the DMV. Anyways, no loans because Dylans school loans are in my name and Scott can't get a loan because he has his truck loan, Justin's car loan and cosigned for my car loan. So guess who has my car in PA? We are hoping something will come up in a week or 2 and we will be able to get him something.

Saturday was mine and Scott's 23rd anniversary and we didn't have money to go out. So I asked Scott to take me to a place I have been wanting to go to. The Rochester Public Market. OMG! I fell in love and spent and saved money on everything from produce to meat and seafood. I bought Scott a Delmonico steak, as he loves them. That was his anniversary gift from me.

Then we came home and we had to get ready to go and take care of his parents. Had a cookout and I made a fresh salad. Stitched on HAED Rapunzel

Sunday was hot and humid so I told Dylan if we are going to get groceries then lets leave early. So got that all done. He went and visited with some friends before going back to PA and was taking his girlfriend, with my car.

Sat in the A/C family room and pulled out my new Halloween Start called Lizzie Kate Halloween Rules. I love Lizzie Kate and can't wait to stitch on this again on Sunday.

I also have started a LK Halloween Rules Blog SAL. If you are interested please email me needeleratgmaildotcom

Today Justin informed me that he is moving back home this week. Well ok then, sooner than I thought but of course he is welcomed back home.
I stiched some more of HAED Rapunzel but the above pic also includes the little bit that I did.
Yesterday and tonight I got caught up on Live With Regis and Kelly, General Hospital and the last 3 episodes of Oprah. Plus last night I watched True Blood, and Falling Skies.

Well good night everyone, hope I didn't bore you to much. Will try to post more progress on Rapunzel, tomorrow.

Sorry to hear about the car, really irks when you put money in for one thing and then something else happens. Hope a loan can be worked out. Like the LK.

Wow, you've been busy!!! I hope you find something car wise, soon!! It sucks when they suddenly die on you like that. And it sucks that you just put so much money in it for it to up and die. UGH!!! Rapunzel looks good so far. And it looks like you got a lot done on your LK too. Keep up the good work. And happy belated anniversary. I'm glad you had a good day, even if you didn't get to go out to dinner and a movie. At least you were together.
