Well, things are going along, but just not fast enough. I can't believe it is barely friday, Rob's been gone less than a week, but it feels like a year. Everyone keeps telling me that time will go fast. I guess that once I get a schedule down or get in my groove, it will, for now though it feels like he has been gone for a LONG time and it has only been 4 days. He called me this morning, and it was wonderful to hear his voice, though he sounds so different. Things are going alright. I had my friend check my car yesterday, and we found the problem, and it should only cost about 150$ to fix. So, yes, that is just the part that needs to be replaced, but by having a friend do the work, I don't have to pay anyone's outrageous labor fees at a garage or anything. and I don't have to pay to have it towed in to anyplace, so I really am keeping the cost down.

I really still have not done any stitching. Although I keep thinking I should do something productive. I think the days are going slow, so I should do some stitching to make the time go faster, wouldn't that make sence? I have been very distracted with the puppy. She is the best thing for me right now, there is nothing like a bit of a waggeling tail to bring a smile to one's face, and with Rob gone, she has brought so much happiness to my home in this time of lonliness. everytime I look at her I can't help but to smile.

Well, we shall see if I can get into some stitching today. Thank you everyone who posted comments on my last post, they made me realize I am not really alone, that I have friends in this stitching/bloggers community. thnak you everyone. hugs to you all. Your comments made me feel not so alone.

Sorry to hear about the car! Glad to hear you have a friend that can help out. I hate taking my car in, I always feel so ripped off.

I'm sure things will settle into a routine for you eventually. I can't imagine it ever gets easy though.

Have a great weekend. ((hugs))

Wow... things certainly have been eventful in your corner of the world recently. I've been too busy to keep up with blogs lately and am just now checking in to see what everyone is up to.

The new puppy sounds absolutely wonderful. I know a pup will be good company for you with DH away. I hope that all goes well while he is gone.

It's great you have friends who can help with some of the little nuisances that come up in life - especially when dh's are away!! I hope you'll make some time to get together with friends to help relieve some of the loneliness, and that pup will be good for lots of comfort and snuggles. :D And then there's all of us!

Glad to read about the car soon fixed!
I would also love to see your puppy! Please post pics!
I know how hard it is to be away from each other for so long; and I also know how helpful your dog can be in this situation. Give her a hug for me, will you? And a great big hug to try and comfort you too!
Take care!
