Hi, hope everyone is doing well; I've just been so busy with working and just life in general that I have been a bad blogger.. At my job; I was a server for 8 years with Black-eyed Pea, they approached me and asked if I wanted to be a manager, I thought about it and even though the hours are longer at my age (56), it was time for a change and even though I have days I want to go back to serving; I'm happy doing this; at least for now. My mom is still battling stage 4 lung cancer; she's in Ohio and I'm in Colorado; so it's very hard and at times I think of moving back home; which I still may do; we will see what her MRI looks like on the 4th of October; so far the chemo pill is stopping it from spreading. She's always been my best friend and we talk everyday. Please keep her in your prayers. I've been stitching a LOT, I lost my stitchy bug for a while, but I found it again and have been stitching up a storm.. My grandbabies are doing good; their in Texas and I miss them so much; we do see each other twice a year; I flew out over the 4th of July and their coming here Oct 15, I may go for a few days over Christmas I haven't decided yet; I'd love to go see my mom.. Take care...

I just saw this pattern today and fell in love with it, my mom just went thru chemo and radiation for lung cancer; which she got from 2nd hand smoke from my grandpa and dads heavy smoking over the years; she just found out Friday that the cancer is still there; but it isn't spreading, so they are going to keep an eye on it, the chemo and radiation was vey hard on her; and the location of the cancer is in the lymphoid on her left lung, too close to the heart to operate. I have faith that she will be able to live many more years, healthy.. I know this pattern is an OOP and was a special offering, but if anyone has it and would lend it to me or even sell/trade so I can stitch it for my mom for Christmas I would be very appreciative...

I've been away from my blog for sometime now; my computer took a dive a few years ago and I went out and bought a tablet and thought that would be ok to use for a while, well it was ok for a bit, but I had to have a computer and finally went out and got myself a nice new Dell..now I need to go buy a new camera and I will be all set up and ready to start posting pictures of my stitching, but I have found that since getting said computer, my stitching has taken a little bit of the back seat..I have some new things going on in my life since we last visited.. I am stitching Let Freedom Ring and loving it... Ashley and the grandbabies are doing well in Texas, she wanted to get good Garth Brooks tickets for when he comes to San Antonio later in the month; so the day they went on sale she had her computer, IPhone and her hubbies computer all set up to buy tickets; and I had my IPhone and Ipad ready as well, so when they went on sale we were off...lol we had fun trying to get the best seats we could and she was so thrilled when she was able to get 5th row from the stage seats..when Garth came to Denver last year she flew out here and her and me and my oldest daughter Heather went and we had a blast...so she invited me to go with her in San Antonio and I jumped at the chance; and bought my plane ticket so I will be in Texas seeing Garth and my grandbabies.. Life doesn't get much better than that.. I have been working for the Black-eyed Pea restaurant for 9 going on 10 years now as a server, well I am 55 years old and single and I just needed something more steady (pay wise), one day i'd make $85 and the next it could be $25, and I needed a change; so I talked with my general manager and district manager and decided to go for management in April I started my training and now I am a manager and I do like the pay and benefits, but the long hours are tough. but it was a good change, I was able to get myself a newer car; I ended up getting a 2013 KIA Forte and I LOVE IT!! Hope everyone is well.

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...

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..

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...

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.
