Google reader is the bestest invention ever!


Ok, well, maybe not the best EVER but wow! I have been reading and reading and reading and reading lots of blogs! and then I decided that I needed to blog myself, and then show you my finish from last night! I was so absolutely sure of finishing "January" this week that at 10 last night I realized that I hadn't stitched on him all day, infact I hadn't done ANY stitching all day, and so I said "Before I go to bed tonight, I AM GOING TO FINISH THIS ONE!" and I sat down, and ten minutes later, it was done! Now it is onto February! Although I have actually already started it! But I only have a bit of the border done so there is much left to do! I think that is what I will work on today.
I also need to get a move on with Snow Valley Express, and I want to work on Holiday Airing as well. Last week I was so into January, Isaiah, and the Abbey, that everything else was practically forgotten. So I think this week I need to pull out Snow Valley, whether I want to or not, and get some significant work in on it! I am really close to finishing the first page, and I think if I stop putting it off, I should be able to finish the first page this month! That will give me about two months, and the first part of May as well, to finish the second page as dad's birthday isn't until mid May. So, my goal is to have it finished by May 1st,(no later than the 6th) that way I can get it ready to be framed and get it shipped to him by his birthday! I talk big, don't I? What do you wanna bet that my father's birthday will come and go AGAIN this year without the piece being finished?! I hate to think that way, but...I have very little motivation when it comes to that project. But yet, as it's a gift, and I know my dad will love it, I so want to have it finished for him. So, in reality I need to set aside my selfish "I don't wanna's" and just sit down and say "I love my dadu and so I am going to finish this as a labor of love" Right? (I can hear you all agreeing with me!) O.k. so today will be "February" and "Snow Valley Express". No Exceptions!
ps...If you're all wondering, no, that isn't a typo- I call my dad "Dadu" and I call my mother "Moozie". And since my mother and I are best friends, she calls me "Woozie". Hey! it's fun! name calling has finally reached a happy peak! You should try it sometime! You might like it!
