October 26, 2010

Been a busy few days, always eventful it seems!!!

Brandon is doing good.....as rotten as ever. Saturday we took him to the Columbus Zoo for their "Boo at the Zoo" event and he loved every minute of it. He got to see his monkeys which are his favorite thing. He got to see all kinds of animals.....fluffy the snake (yuk), the baby elephant, and his precious gibbons. He would really sit for hours if he had the option. When he told me "mommy I happy" you knew the trip was worth it!!!

Last Wednesday Tim got in a car accident, luckily it's not his fault and he's okay, but now the van is in the shop for who knows how long. We have a rental thankfully but it just stinks to have to deal with car repairs!
Lastly, I've got another cross stitch finish to share! This one will hopefully be for my daddy this year for Christmas. He's the cheif of his local fire department so I know he will love it. It only took me 20 days of stitching to get it done too! That free's up some time to work on a christmas pillow for my newest neice and who knows what else I decide to stitch for Christmas. I have a couple ornaments that I have to work on for certain too!

MAN......what a hectic couple of days!!!

Yesterday Tim was in a car accident. Not his fault thankfully but the van is going to need a new back door and bumper. Which is actually kind of funny actually because the back bumper had a bunch of scuffs on it and we were just saying how it would be nice to have a new one! His back has been pretty sore since, I did talk him into going to the ER just to make sure everything was alright. They were, but after having that back surgery we just cannot take any chances!!!

I am ALMOST done stitching my fireman, should be done either tonight or tomorrow night! Very excited to have this done!!

October 19, 2010

Had to work today, tons of fun. Yeah right. All in all it wasn't a bad day. Pretty long and strung out to be honest. Guess we all have days like that I suppose. The one thing I like about being on the late shift at work is being able to sleep in a little bit in the mornings.

Tomorrow I have training in the morning then the afternoon should be pretty normal. Lets hope anyway.

I did get a new finish done. This is for a Christmas ornament. I stitched it on 32 count linen with Waterlilies silk in Mediterranean and Delica's beads. It actually went really fast and I'm excited to get it finished. I have to add a star charm at the top, then it will be "finished" into a small pillow. I want to do a few more ornaments this year so I'd better get moving!!!

One of the best feelings in the world though, when I came home from work today little man came running out the door arms wide open for a hug. I love the little guy to pieces, he's an amazing kid.

Well I don't think I'm doing TOO shabby at working my blog......It's only been 10 months since I updated it! LOL. Hopefully I'll do better.

There've been some ups and downs around here. We won't talk about the downs, best leave all the bad crap alone and out of the picture!! We're doing pretty good around here. Brandon is very much a 2 year old little boy!!!!

In May we took a vacation to Ocean City, MD and Washington, D.C. I wish we could have had more time in D.C. Our hotel in Ocean city was wonderful.........The view from the room was AMAZING. Who doesn't want to wake up to that??? We also got to visit the horses at Assateauge (sp?) Island.
I really want to go back to D.C. soon, and when Brandon can understand what all we are looking at. He was a bit young but the memories will last forever!

I got my own laptop now

that's what my lovely DH got me for Christmas!! :) Now maybe it will be easier for me to keep up with my blog!!!!

I have been surfing the net a lot and have found a TON of blogs that have a lot of cross stitch patterns listed on them. I have so many patterns now it's crazy, I know I will never be able to stitch them all.

Today Tim came up for lunch, nothing major. Except he handed me a bag from Sacks Fifth Avenue! In it contained the perfume that I have been wanting FOREVER (okay well since October when it came out). I had told him not to buy it but he didn't listen, not that I'm going to complain too much mind you!!! (by the way, it's Dolce & Gabbana rose the one)

Well that's about all the update I have for now, I'm tired and so ready to go to bed. Hopefully DH will agree to that as well!!!!!
