I touch fabric, pet yarn and fondle beads, sometimes inappropriately.

Life Sucks

Thats right it sucks. Sucks in a BIG WAY!!
Here it is Tuesday of spring break and already I want to explode on the kids.
They are bored and keep teesing each other till the screraming starts and driving me NUCKIN' FUTS!
There is nothing on tv because the cable is out. I don't think it is because I am late with the payment because the internet and cell phones still work. But if it is for non payment then I will soon lose it all and not be able to pay till next week. I need about $1000.00 to get all cought up. I can pay the rent this month and then try to get everything all paid up. Last month I made an error in my checkbook and lost all my pay to overdrafts, that is how I got behind. It is not the kids fault that they are driving me nuts but they need to be a bit more quite while I stress out about it.

My Secret Life

In my secret life I am a Super Hero.
Last week after saving the Earth from some really super Bad People, I was doing a victory dance and trip over the cat. Thus fracturing my foot.

The real story is so lame.
I stepped out the front door crossing over the threshold left foot first. When I stepped down I got a stress fracture in my left foot.

Yesterday I became 1 year older. I stayed in bed all day long and did not do anything but knit and crochet. I did watch tv all day too.
The kids are healthy and back in school. Even if they wern't healthy they have to be in school for finals.

What a week. After work on monday I had to pick up Nicole from school for her dentist appointment and Thomas text me that his thraot was hurting so I got him too. The kids dr is in the same building as the dentist so just made one trip. The dentist had missed placed Nicole's chart so no work was done. Down stairs we waited for Thomas to be seen and yes again he has strep. Had it in Nov. too. He has not had it since 2005 which he had it almost every other month. We stopped for dinner and got home after 6pm.
Tuesday Kim said her throat hurt so she too had to stay home from school. I called the dr and he gave her meds for strep. I had to go and pick it up. The girls and I had a meeting that night and Kim felt like going so we went. Both girls were eleceted in to offices for the next 6 months. Kim needed the inhaler for her breathing problems, it was the weather that is causing her breathing problems.
We have an inversion over our area right now and the air is very stagnant and cold.
Wednesday after work I had PT for a spasem in my back and neck last one, yeah.
All of us had to go to a meeting that night too.
Thursday Nicole didn't feel well so she stayed home. I had a mid day work shift and got a lot done even cleaned up the store room. That night we went on the art walk in town. Every third thursday of the month the museums are free in the evening.
Friday I called the dr again because Nicoles throat was hurting. Yep strep there too.
This is my weekend off and no I am not getting any rest. We are on the go from the time we get up till we go to bed.
So far this week just in the waiting room I have 2 sets of potholders and washcloths made as well as 3 pairs of slippers.

I hope everyone had a good Christmas.
We had a white Christmas here. It had snowed off and on for 2 weeks here. Snow, freezing rain, and temps below freezing has made it hard to drive and walk. I nearly fell 3 times walking in to work from the parking lot. It is warming up and the snow should be gone in a few days.
I bought some yarn today, as if I need more yarn. I was filling in the bins and saw some I wanted and it was the last 3 in that color so I matched with other colors. I have no ideas what to do with it yet or with the 6 I bought last month. I think I just needed to own pretty yarn.
Since I had finished the work I needed to do and had time to kill I worked in the yarn dept for about an hour and a half. I like being with all the yarn and filling in and rewraping the yarns. The dept manager likes it when I play in the yarns and beads. Everything is put in order and really looks good when I do.
This months completed projects:
* 10 of 15 slippers for gifts for a group of girls
* knitted hat and scarf for hubbys Christmas gift
Works in Progress:
* knitted afghan
* crocheted doll

Long Time No See

It has been a long time since I have been here. I have been working but not long hours just to early for me. I am also trying to get 15 pairs of slippers made by the 13Th of this month I have 5 done. I finished a sewing project that I cut out in the spring of '07. It was not that hard to do I just put it off till now.
I have had a headache for 6 days now because of spasm in my back. I am on the waiting list to see the Physical Therapist. I hope they call soon. I would love to get a good back massage.
Tom is home now he has been gone for about 6 weeks. He went back to long haul trucking after being home for a year doing local runs. I don't mind his being gone for so long it has been that way for most of our married life.
Bye for now I hope I make it back here soon.
