Here I am mid 30’s, and am excited about making new friends. I’ve always loved getting to know new people, and have heard from others it gets harder as you get older. I never really understood that. I understand that as we get older our world can sort of shrink. Ya work, home & family kinda becomes your world *shrugs.* Not that I’m that different, but I’ve still never had a hard time making friends even as I get older. Perfect example is the lovely lady I met off a message board. Crazy but true, it’s a cross-stitch message board so right away we have something in common. Right now we get together once a week stitch, bitch, laugh what have you, and I enjoy it, and her company. Bill thinks it’s great gives him more quite time to study….lol. Jeremy is usually in bed (or close to it) when I leave. Yup I have a great life.

Got another donation today for the draw woo hoo things are looking up just have to get my family donating…lol. Training needs to be kept up, but it’s coming. Please check out link on the right.

Tried working on a model last night. Frogged more than I stitched which is discouraging. Going to do a mental health-stitching day & work on a RR piece…sigh.

As for the modelstitching message board I need to contact Loretta today & see what’s going on. With MSN Down (AGAIN) this is difficult to do. I’m already thinking of forums, possible moderators etc. I hope to do a good job, and have a message board that attracts both designers & model stitchers give a little Hitler a run for her money….lol.

Well when it rains it pours.

Here I was just innocently complaining about a certain Yahoo group, when wham bam I’m now going to be running a message board to directly compete with said group. I secretly hope I do better. Just a short note today.

The Weekend to End Breast Cancer

Last Night Was Interesting.

Jeremy is registered for kindergarten starting this September (where does the time fly.) This is a Discovery School non-competition very touchy feely school. The school is offering Discovery School for parents. These are parenting classes that mirror the school’s philosophy. So I signed up for a few reasons:
~ they are FREE
~ gives Jeremy a chance to check out the school
~ I get to meet some of the parents
~ heck I might actually learn something

So last night they had a potluck for the first class, and it was lovely. The kids after went with a bunch of the Teachers for childcare, and the parents settled in for their “school.” Well after a long week at work, working late I was tired but pushed through. The introduction stuff, and the conclusion stuff I truthfully found BORING I did enjoy the small group work though. Last night the theme was Birth Order, which is an interesting topic, and am now seeing clearer the reasons why Bill, Jeremy and even myself act in certain ways.


Well continuing on with training. Walking every day for at least an hour. Trying to work in some cross training if I can wake up early enough. Please check out the link (lower left) to learn more about it, and to support me. If you are a stitcher there is also a link to a really cool Draw as well.


I have just one rose left on the commissioned piece left to do woo hoo. I’ll then need to get my butt in gear to finish a model I have. I’m thinking that when I finish a model/commissioned piece I may try, and take a month off in between. That’s if they plan on paying in stash…lol. As my friend Loretta has a possible commissioned piece for me to do that will pay $50. Right now with fundraising I can’t turn down $50….lol

Haven’t Written in Awhile.

Thins are going well on the home front. Bill’s in his final term at school yip hee, the annoyance now is that the support workers are on a rotating strike so that sucks. Jeremy is all registered for kindergarten I can’t believe how old he is already.

News about me.

I’ve registered to do The Weekend to End Breast Cancer. It’s a 60 kilometer walk over one weekend, and I’m committed to raise $2,000.00. Please check out the link at the side. Which trust me neither I’ve done before. I’ve so far raised $110, and training is off to a great start. As part of my fundraiser I’m offering a draw for all my stitching buddies. So for every $ they donate they will their name entered $10 donation = 10 entries. I so far have some excellent companies contributing to my Draw please check out the link to the Draw information on the side bar. Thank you.
