Friday usually means something special to most people, it is the day that ends the work week for them and at the end of the day they can look forward to two days of relaxation and sleeping in, and fun stuff. Not so for those of us in retail. Stores are open everyday of the week. So, it is Friday but I still have two more days to work until I get a day off. And mind you I only get ONE day off, then I work four more days and then get another day off. Oh well, it's not so bad, I had all of last weekend off, and then had to work 6 days in a row to make up for it.

But! Enough grumbling and griping. I have another gripe to gripe about cable box! I just got cable, my hubby got the box last night and hooked it up, I enjoyed watching the Cosby Show and Prince of Bel Air last night, and was looking forward to a nice day of QVC and home make over shows today, and maybe some fun Disney kiddie shows! hey! Who's not a fan of the Bear and the Big Blue Bouse! (Tutter is the BEST!... sorry for those of you who have no idea what I am talking about! Those with kids, you know.) I love sacking in front of the telly with non -thinking things on and being able to stitch to them. But! Alas! this morning after reading blogs, I got myself and my coffee all settled in snug with the blankies, and aimed the remote....aimed the remote!.... and pressed power...power...POWER!...Threw the remote on the floor! The dumb cable box wouldn't turn on!!!! So, now I have to wait to see if Hubby can figure it out, or we may have a bad box, we noticed that there are scratches on it like the person before us didn't take good care of it. so, hopefully hubby can fix it, if not I think I will have to wait until Monday to get a new box. POOEY! No Saturday Morning cartoons for hubby....or me. =(

Well, despite my disappointments with the cable box, I still got some stitching in, on Easter. It is almost there. I have the whole word "happy" done and alot of "Easter" I still have not touched my mom's piece for a few days now, I really should do just that. After stitching while wacthing Miss Congeniality, I worked out. I might as well, since I can't be a channel surfing couch potato, and I just got out of the shower, and I think I may sit and read my book for a bit now, then have some lunch,then, maybe do some more stitching and then it will once again be time to get ready for work. So, thank you everyone for listening to my sad sob story, and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I will post pictures later.

Oh my, hope your husband is able to fix the cable box, that would be very bothersome! When will we get to see an update on your Easter piece? I love how your Mom's piece is coming along, and here's a cheer to get it finished, I know you can do it! :)

I can relate to you working weekends etc - I just call whatever day is my last day of the week "Friday" ... but for me it could be any day as a shift worker. Those 6 and 7 days straight are killers ... but we just have to make the most of the days off that we do get :) Hope you manage to get your cable box sorted out! :D
