I got the "blahs"...

I don't mean to sound like I'm complaining, but I guess in reality I am..lol I've been working so hard to get a manager position at my job and I was to have my interview with the owner of the company this morning, so I got all dressed up in my best outfit and arrived early, only to be told that he had something "come up" and couldn't make the meeting, so I met with the District Manager and Office Manager, I think it went well. They said they'd let me know before Monday. I came home and swore I was going to get some serious stitching done, well, that didn't go as planned, I stitched for an hour and came to a point where I realized I'm one line off..so do I undo all I've done or just go with it, which is what I am probably going to do; since it's just for me and it's not an issue yet. My mom had lung cancer 2 years ago, and they removed the middle portion of her right lung, she got cancer from 2nd hand smoke, she's never smoked her whole life. My dad was a heavy smoker. She went for her 4 month check-up and another spot showed up, so they gave her a pep scan and another spot showed, their both in her lipoids, they removed the spot on her left lung, but can't get to the other one unless they remove the whole right lung, so their going to put her thru radiation/chemo, my mom lives in Ohio with my Step-dad. I live in Colorado. Things are just rough right now and I had to vent.. Thanks for listening my friends...

Finally some stitching...

I belong to a group on Facebook, and they loan out OOP Blackbird charts and I was lucky enough to be able to borrow Autumn Song and stitch it. I've wanted to stitch this ever since I received it; but I am working towards a manager position with the restaurant I've worked at for the past 9 years and have been working 10 to 12 hour days and haven't been able to stitch; but today I didn't have to be at work until 3, so I was able to start it. I got one leaf done before I had to get ready for work. It's not going to take me long once I'm able to sit and stitch on it for a day and my 55th Birthday is this coming Friday and I took it off work, and I think I may just be able to get some solid stitching done. Last night at work; I noticed this little boy sitting with the table tent from his table on his head, he sat there for a good 15 minutes if not longer with it balanced there; it made me smile, I wonder what he was thinking?? Not much else going on, Hope everyone is doing well and getting plenty of stitching done..

My Monday..

Those two days off go so darn fast.. I always have a list of things to do on my days off, and somehow never seem to get anything done, last week was a 54 hour work week and I was just so tired, hell i'm still tired. And didn't get anything accomplished. I have about 10 stitches to complete a project and just can't get into it. Ever lose your "Stitching Mojo?". I gotta go and get in the shower and get ready for work, at least it's a short day today, I get off around 4 today and then the next 3 days I work 1-11 or later..then 6 hours on Sunday. Hope everyone is safe and warm...

Happy Valentines Day..

Hope everyone had a great day, I had to work and we were pretty busy, I waited tables today; I've been a waitress for Black-eyed Pea for 9 years now, about 2 months ago I started floor supervising, hoping to be a manager soon. They need 1 new manager around March 1, and it's between me and another woman, who is younger.. I'll be 55 the 26th of this month and she's about 30, I hope that doesn't go against me, I think I'm good at my job, so I guess time will tell. Ashley and Torry bought the kids a trampoline, Scarlett is in gymnastics and they think this may help her, I think Torry and Ash are the ones who want it.. LOL I'm off from work the next 2 days and I have a "date", with a man I've been seeing off and on for about 8 months now, he's very nice, I guess some would consider a "good catch", but I just can't seem to connect with him, he's so good to me and is very caring, owns a beautiful home, he's retired from the Army, just about my whole family is connected with the military, his name is Terry. Just gonna take it slow and enjoy his friendship for now.

I've been MIA...

I hope everyone is doing well and getting ready for a Happy Valentines Day.. I have to work of course. So much has been going on in my life since I last posted; I haven't had a computer for over a year, just a tablet and it's hard to keep up with anything on one of those, so I went and got a new computer yesterday and can't wait to touch base with my blogger friends again, I follow some of you on FB, and I have gone to the library a few times and looked at what you all have been up to. My girls are doing well, the babies are growing so much, Ashley is 5 and Colton is 2, Hayden my oldest grandson is 20 now.. time sure does get away with us. On the stitching side; I still stitch as much as I can possibly do, sometimes I lose my stitching "mojo", but it does come back. I am working towards being a manager at my job; sometimes I think I may change my mind because of the long hours and sometimes I just feel like a over paid baby sitter. Take care all and I will be chatting with you soon. Hugs, Sharee

Hello from Texas....

Well, I made the flight in one piece. LOL I haven't flown since 1996 and let me tell you things have really changed...I didn't have any problems and even got my stitching scissors on the flight ok; they never said anything about them; I'd talked to several ladies and they had mixed experiences on the air lines allowing scissors. Some had lost their favorite ones, so I just brought a old stork pair that doesn't cut very well and there wasn't a problem. Me and Scarlett have been stitching, it makes this Grandma very happy when she asks if we can stitch, she's only 4 so I have to help but she's doing a great job. I brought Bent Creeks "Summer House" Zipper for us to do; it's on 18 count and the needle is huge so I thought it would be easier for us to use. It's so humid here; Ashley & Torry just bought their first home in Corpus Cristie; I've never been here before and the humidity is horrid!! It's rained everyday, this morning we had a really bad thunderstorm and I've caught a cold either from the babies or from the weather change. Hopefully it won't rain tomorrow so we can go to the ocean; I'd like to go home with some sun.. It's nice not having to worry about working for this week; but I"m kind of panicking about the money I'm missing. I'm single and a waitress and pretty much live day by day, the kids bought me a ticket to come visit them and I couldn't say no and I haven't had a vacation for almost 5 year. I guess I'll just worry and deal with things when I get home. I did have a amazing job offer before I left and I am praying everyday that it pans out; it would be so much more money and it's an office job and I'd be off my feet. I'm too old to be waiting tables; my knees are bad and I just can't do this much longer. I have so much to write about; but I'll just save it for another day. I hope everyone is safe and sound and doing lots of stitching.. Hugs, Shar

I'm still around.

Well, it's been a while since I've posted; I still don't have a computer at home, just my tablet and I hate trying to type on that thing. So, I come to the library every once in a while to print off free cross stitch, and get caught up here; I may go looking at computers today; I do miss having one and being able to update my blog. Last week Ashley flew here from Texas and her and I and Heather went and seen Garth Brooks, we had amazing seats and had a wonderful time, I fly to Texas on April 10 to visit the grandbabies for 7 days; I haven't had a vacation in 4 years and I sure am looking forward to just relaxing and hopefully getting some sun. They live in Corpus Cristie and it's right by the beach. I can't wait... I haven't been stitching very much lately; I just can't seem to get my stitching mojo going. I've started a few things but can't seem to focus long enough to make any progress. Hope everyone is safe and happy....
