Well, this is the week that wouldn't end!!! Only because dear Hubby is traveling for his job right now and so I'm all alone...sad....and which means also, that I have had to throw the paper route all by myself this week, which I have never done, (Well once, but that was a last minute fluke thing) Ever since that guy threw his shoe at our car while we were doing the route, I kinda just felt much safer having hubby with me.

Well, Hubby left Friday night, late, and so my first shift doing the route by myself was Saturday morning. Unbeknownst to me, which I found out from reading the front page on Sunday morning, Just hours before I threw my route, there was a murder that took place on A STREET that I deliver on!!!! Can you say FREAKED out?!!!?! And here I am having to throw the dumb route BY MYSELF for the rest of the week...and on Halloween no less!!! I am really wanting it to be Saturday right now because then Hubby will be back and I will feel much safer!

I am getting excited too, because my mom, who is my best friend is coming to visit me next week for my birthday. I can't wait!!! I cannot believe I turn 30 in 10 days! I can't believe it is November tomorrow!!! Only two months left until next year!

Which brings me to stitching....My October freebie...not done. Technically I still have 3 1/2 hours until it's "late", but I am thinking that when I am done with this post I am going to go to bed, and try to catch a little shut eye before the route in the wee hours, I really do not sleep well when hubby isn't here, and with the stress from the route and all, I really am not sleeping well, I hear every little creak and noise, and tonight it is windy so there's the added noise, and so good luck to me with that.

So, anyway, not much else going on but that, just impatiently waiting for DH to return home to me. Hurry up Saturday get here, please!



I am so excited!!! I thought I would try my scanner and haza!!!! It works!!! This is a photo of Rob and I at the Air Force Ball last month!!! That is my wedding dress, we had the train cut off and made it into a formal dress. It matches his tux/uniform. He looks so good in that uniform!!! Well, I will try to scan stitching photos tomorrow, but for right now I need to try to sleep!

Hi! I'm still alive!

But just barely...just been buried under mountains of homework,and stuff, but the semester is more than half over now, and so I see the's right over there, just a speck, behind that other huge mountain of books that I must climb before I get to "Final Exams Valley". Sigh.

So I have just been busy also, the fact that I have no way of sharing pictures of my stitching, (which yes I have been doing- I took everyone's advice...I must not forgo stitching, or I shall end up bald in an attempt to stay sane while going through this semester.) sorta dampens the whole blogging my stitching projects experience. But! I can still Tell you what I am stitching right? Why not?

Things are going slow mostly to the fact that I have very little time to devote to my stitching, but a little progress here and there is getting done.

I am now more than half way finished with Erica Micheal's Tiny Alphabet sampler letter "B", i plan on starting "C" this week...when I don't know...the week is almost Ok, this weekend then...I'll start "C" this weekend. My goal concerning these tiny pieces are: finish one alphabet piece a week, and one monthly piece amonth. which I have been doing so far...well the monthly goals.

I am on October freebie right now, probably about half finished with it...yikes, if I want to finish it by the end of the month I am really gonna have to get going on it!

My other goal is this: to finish one page of "The Abbey" a month. Ha! I thought it was doable...but now...maybe not so, but I am stitching on it as well, I have finished page one and have 8 more to go...I have started page 2, but probably only have maybe 400 stitches in on it, so still a long way to go.

So, anyway, that is what is going on in my world. I am a bit disappointed...Hubby has to leave this weekend for a training session for about a week, and I'm not looking forward to it. But, I have lots to keep me busy until he returns so I think I will be alright. Lots of homeowrk, and stitching, and reading. Those three things alone should keep me hoppin, then there's the fact that my mom is coming to visit the following week, so trying to get things ready for her arrival will also keep me busy. With any luck the time will jst fly by! Lets hope so!
