And life goes on....

Hello! Well, I just spent about 45 minutes reading through blogs...there is lots of nice stuff out there!

Things here have been pretty good. I am starting to get stressed with school work. this past weekend I actually broke down and practically had a coniption (sp?) I find that as i get older my memory isn't what it used to be. I know, sounds funny, I am not even 30 yet...soon, but not quite. Adn I don't know if it's because I have been out of college for two years and I forgot how to memorize things, but I had a test yesterday and as I was studying, I was getting so frustrated, because I would read my notes then try to quiz myself by reiterating what I'd just read and I kept getting things all bungled up!!! I really don't know how I did on my test, and I want to do well, but I tried, and if I failed, I am going to be so discouraged!

Anyway, enough sad stuff, I have been stitching, which is good. I have been working on Erica Micheal's tiny sampler: letter A. And it seems like it is taking me forever!!! I am almost done with it, but I feel as though I have been stitching on it for a long time. I am anxious to be done with it and onto letter "b".

I finished book 6 of Harry Potter and am now on #7! 7 is going so fast for me! I am really enjoying it, but ina way I am ready to be done with this series. I have enjoyed it, but I have tons of other books that want my attention and I just bought 8 new ones on amazon...ssshhh don't tell the hubby!...and I am just ready to be done with HP.

So, also I have sad news...my scanner is acting up again! So, I don't how how soon I can show photo's of my September freebie and my letter A sampler. I am going ot try it again tomorrow, and then ask hubby to see if he can get it working again and if not...I guess I have to go get a new one.

Well I am off to get a nap in, before going to work at 2 am. Work is crazy! not so much the work itself, but the crazy people that roam the streets of this town at the wee hours of the morning, the other morning I was driving along, there is this kid like 18 or 19 years old just walking down the middle of the road, like in the middle of the lane I was driving in, so I slowed down to see if he was gonna get out of the way or what, and this idiot, takes his shoe off and throws it at my windsheild!!!! He's lucky it didn't do any damage...and I was glad that my husband was with me.

He is so lucky his shoe didn't go into my car, because I was in my convertible with the top down as it is still pretty warm here. And do you think I could find a cop anywhere?! no! But the past three mornings there has been one at that exact entersection, like in the parking lot of the DQ on that corner just patroling, but when I need them?! nowhere!

I am seriously thinking of looking for a new job, sounds like a good idea to me, what do you think?!

Hi Lana -- I can relate about retention issues and school. Try it when you're pushing 40! I still love school, though.

What was the deal with the kid and the shoe? LOL, just took it off and whipped it at you? Crazy!

A new job sounds good to me...

Oh, I hope your scanner works soon! I'd love to see pictures of your new WIPs. Are you using the Rainbow Gallery threads?

Hang in there with school, I know it is hard. It does seem to be much harder to get things to "click" when we're older than it did before. However, you probably did better on your test than you think you did, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Good luck too with your scanner, and a new job sounds like it might be all that bad an idea. Sure are some strange people out at that time of the night (or should I say morning).

sounds like you need a new job...:)
You are a very busy person with school and work no wonder you have retention issues. Hope things settle down for you.

Keep plugging away at the school work and remember, there is such thing as too much studying!

My memory is pretty bad too. Has been for a number of years. I think it gets worse after you've had a baby too. xx
