We made it!!!

Well, it took us nearly 2 and halfdays to get here, but our drive to California was uneventful. We arrived here Friday early evening, and spent time visiting with my aunt, whose house we are staying at. Yesterday we slept in quite late, due to our long trip, and then got up went out to breakfast and then to my parents house to pick up our dog, and head to the beach!!! =) It was lovely!!!

Then it was back to Aunt's house to clean up a bit and meet the parents for dinner at a niiiiice restaurant in the harbor called "Scotch and Sirloin",where we recieved first class service FROM the executive head Chef himself...who is my brother!!! It was a wonderful meal that put us all into a "Food coma" LOL. My stomach kept screaming "No more!" while my mouth kept saying "MORE!!!" (My mouth won!)

Today is going to be a nice relaxing day. We went out to breakfast with my aunt and her friend, Cindy, then we went for a little drive and saw all our old stompin' grounds. Then hit Starbucks for me and Jamba Juice for the Hubs, and now we are back at my aunts house to relax for a bit, before we head to the movies to see the Terminator movie.

I have yet to pick up any stitching...probably after I finish posting here. I haven't stitched for about 5 days now...going into withdrawal! =( The way I see it, I can stitch when I'm in Japan, now is the time to to visit family who I won't get to see for awhile.

Gosh, I missed California!

Oh boy...

Well we are in the thick of it...moving that is...I've been talking about the move for months now, but as I speak, my possessions lay haphazardly around me wrapped in brown packing paper, and piles of boxes are everywhere.

I am sleeping on a mattress...and I have only hubby's laptop as a means for computer intertainment...which sucks, because yesterday hubby was on here playing his dumb game for 12 hours!!!! So I was tuck in the bedroom, stitching and reading and sleeping.

It's really rediculous the amount of time that man plays his online game...but whatever!!

I'm now fully addicted to "BoInk" by Ink Circles. It is all I've been stitching...I am not sure when I will be able to share a photo. I can't wait to be settled in my new abode. but first we have to have movers come get all our things, then his family will be here for a short visit, ugh...then we go to California to see my parents, and then it's off to Japan.

Actually I say his fam will be here for sh. visit, but they are actually mvoing into this house. As his brother got orders to this base and has to be here just days before we leave so the last three days here I have to deal with 5 extra people in my house!!! One being a 6 month old and another a 2 year old, and two being his bro. and his wife who hate me and made me miserable the entire time they lived in this house when we first got it 4 years ago, who free loaded for a year, and his mother who won't talk to my husband unless she needs soemthing. So...There is not a person in this bunch that I even remotely will enjoy visiting with,'s gonna suck. I think I am planning lots of hours "Not feeling well, in bed" while they're here. And stay in my room with needle and thread. =) Works for me!

Well, as I spent much of my day in bed yesterday, because there wasn't much else to do as hubby was on here, I slept on and off all day, and am now awake at 5 in the morning...he just went to bed 3 hours ago...the dork!

Boy am I in a right awful mood today! Grrr...gonna go stitch, maybe that will make me feel better!!

May goals, and a rehash on last month

Well, thank you all for the encouraging comments, and after all that...the movers called my husband 3 minutes after he got home from work and informed him that they could not come today but needed to reschedule for next week! And that! Ladies and Gents is life as a military spouse! Just lovely!!! lol

Well, I don't know that I actually wanna make any sound plans for May, since we are getting down to the nitty gritty for the move...yup, less than 3 weeks!!!!! Wahoo!

Lets look at April shall we? how'd I do?

1) Finish Tombstone- DONE!!!
2) Get at least half of page 4 done on Howling at the Moon. (And finish up #5)-nope, didn't even pick this one up!
3) Put at least 2 hours in on The Abbey-Did more like 10 hours!
4) Put at least 1 hour in on CH4TH-Nope! didn't even look at it!

So, while i totally failed on two of my goals, I way over finished two! I fifnished Tombstone angel in March actually! And I know I worked on the Abbey for about 10 hours because I started listening to "The Lucky One" by N. Sparks on CD when I got serious about this one and the entire book was 10 hours long.

And I was so enthralled with The Abbey that I never even picked up CH4TH. I really should do that one of these days...however not this month.

This month:
1) Enjoy stitching
2) don't pull my hair out with stress from the move.

I know! that second one has nothing to do with Stitching, but thought I'd throw it in there anyway! =)

Last night I actually added alot of the blogs I read to my sidebar. And I visited alot of them and added myself to your public follower lists. If you want me to add your blog to my list, please let me know! I know there are alot more stitching bloggers out there who I have not gotten around to reading, and I would love to know what I am missing and then add you so I won't miss out on another post! So, PLEASE let me know, in the comments, just say "Add me, please" or something!!! Thankyou!

Hope you all have a stitchy fun weekend!
