Coming Home For the Holidays/SAL update

Well, here is my update on Coming Home for the Holidays. My SAL with Julie. I can't believe her and I have been SALing on this for a YEAR!! I just realized that! It's slowly, and I mean SLOOOOOWLY, coming along! LOL....Still been in a stitchy rut! Man! I just have too much energy to do anything, like settle in with stitching. As soon as I sit down, get everything settled, my needle threaded, I'm ready to pop up and go do something else! I feel like I have ADHD! All I want to do is sit and read. I guess cause that doesn't take much effort, to pick up and set down. I don't want to stitch, I don't want to work on my pen paling, writing letters and stitching are just taking up tooo much thought, and not enough energy! LOL. And I think the only reason that this is, is because of  what I wanna do and AM doing well are my Turbo Jam work outs!! I am still LOVING it! I'm on day 37! And it's so much fun! So! I work out hard every day and I just don't have the want to to just SIT. Sad, since all my favorite hobbies include sitting on my butt, doing something. I just keep hopping up to do a  house chore, or play with the baby, or go for a random walk around the block! But these work outs ARE working! I am starting to look good! Not so "fluffy" (Ok....fat....)

I figure I can stitch and do all my "Sit down" hobbies after I lose my weight!  So for now I'm focusing on weight loss, and being more healthy!!

So, I'm sorry if I'm not around here posting as much as normal. I just don't have as much to share, since I'm not stitching as much!

Sorry this photo is so blurry.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We are taking Alyssa to her first birthday party!  I'm sure she'll enjoy it! The person who invited us has 7 kids, and 4 of them have birthdays this month!!! So she is throwing a BIG Birthday/Halloween bash for them. Alrighty, off to get some things done, before we're off to celebrate 4 Rugrats and Halloween!

The stitching can wait - getting yourself healthy can't!! You sound like me a little bit - I can't get myself to sit during the day much. I always feel that I need to be up and moving - and that makes me happy!! The stitching will get done and I'll be happier for it - and so will you!!

Good luck with the weight loss

Looking great! I am still trying to decide what I want to work on in this SAL next. I have a few pieces that I haven't touched in a while, but they aren't that big either. I am contemplating picking up another Dimensions Gold piece (kit) along the same lines as what we are doing now.

I hear ya about having too much energy to just sit. I go through periods like that, although for me it's more of a get out of the house and on the road momentum! Since I am on a tight budget, no can do. Hence, getting a lot of stitching done :)

Good for you working out so much. It is hard when there is only so much free time to split between stitching and everything else in life.

Good luck with the weight loss... I need to work on that, too.

Your SAL looks great!
