Life is nuts at the Butler House

Hi All- What a week... I want to say first to the Angels you rock- thanks for putting up with my ranting and wine Thursday night. You are awesome.
We have begun the Miracle Worker and Joesph weeks which means Emma is at KAS everyday until June 8th. I am so proud of her. We saw the Miracle Worker Saturday night and it was EXCELLENT. The cast is amazing and even with a change in actresses (the girl who was playing Helen is very ill) the show was fabulous. If you Kelowna peeeps can make it I suggest it. Blind girl #2 is awesome for the whole seven minutes she is on stage lol.
This week is shaping up to be a little less hectic and I actually slept until 8:30 yesterday. I get back on to P90X and hot yoga so I am looking forward to my kind of normal.
On the stitching front there is not a whole lot to report. I am still madly stitching a scissor keeper that needs to be mailed Tuesday--- :( I will get this done but under the wire or what? I was VERY EXCITED to get my copy of Hare's Christmas from Plum Street. I am saving it until after the scissor keeper and ABCand in between. It will be a bit of a incentive to get it the other two done.
I am off to shower and then to work. I have a day of interviews and schedules to wish me luck :0)

Happy day!

The person who makes the schedule at my work drinks too much...

Oh wait that's me... I scheduled myself five opens in a row which is something a drunk person would do but unfortunately we have a no tolerence  (sp?) at the Bux. So stone cold sober I managed to do this to myself.Ugh I am too nice- yes Angels I said I am too nice...  one more to go and I am sleeping in on Wednesday!
Okay so what is new... I am P90xing and hot yogaing(not a word I know)and tired. I know all this ing is good for me buuuutttttt are buster bars from DQ so wrong? I know the answer so no need to respond.
Emma is heading into week 2 of Miracle Worker and it is so good... She begins rehearsal for Joesph tomorrow... again no need to respond...
I have hardly stitched at all so I got nothing but nosense today sorry...

Until next time :)

P90X and more

I did P 90 for the first time this week. I started today as day 4 is 92 minutes of yoga. I would usually do that on Thursdays (Angel night) so I have switched it so it falls on Saturday. It's just easier ... I am going for a pedi and lunch with a friend and then the girls and I have hair appointments.I am back to work tomorrow so I am trying  to get everything in before then. Emma is approaching "hell week" with Miracle Worker and is not feeling well. She is off to the dr today. BUMMER! Oh man! I will have stitching pictures later promise...J

Ben is 9 today!

Today is Ben's 9 th birthday. Wow time does fly ! Phil and I are taking him or lunch and then to Toys R Us to celebrate (mainly because we have no idea what to get him)
My Mom , Marnie and I had a great trip to Seattle and area. We hit the AnaCross Friday and of course picked up a few things. We outlet shopped until we dropped on Saturday and headed home Sunday. My Mom and I went to Bed Bath and Beyond Monday am and I bought some much needed gagets for Emma's drawer and the house- pictures to come I promise. I am back to P90x today--- ugh but it does feel good once it is done. I will let you know how it goes :) J

I can't find my camera!!!

It's quite early Thursday morning and I am having a minute with my tea and Oscar ( one of the black and whites) I am waiting for Emma and Mags to wake up as I can not find my camera hmmmm I believe they may know where it is. I have decided instead of raging and waking the house up I will enjoy the tea ,my puppy and the quiet. They will be up soon enough.
I turned forty yesterday... I really did not have much of an opinion on the subject. I do have some wonderful friends though. My friend Carolyn gathered the managers in my Sbux district for lunch and it was a wonderful surprise. She also put 6 pink flamingos in my drive thru with signs asking to wish me a happy 40th birthday. AWESOME - I hid in my backroom after 8:30am lol. My wonderful family sent me flowers and balloons at work - another slightly embarassing moment. When I arrived home a goregous Jaime Joesph moonstone ring was waiting for me. I am spoiled rotten. We went to my favourite Italian restaurant for dinner. It was the first time we had taken the kids to this spot. We were joined by my friend Sue and her husband and my Mom. It was a truly awesome birthday.
My Mom and I are heading to Vancouver shortly to pick up my sister. We are heading for our second annual "Run for the Border" shopping trip. I have mapped out the way to Ana Cross Stitch and it looks to be one of our first stops "enroute" to the outlet mall. I have the ladies dress and shoe sizes and armed with a Sonic the Hedgehog toy list for Ben. I am all set ! I do have to pack though...
That's all for me right now- I will post pics of my latest stitching projects as soon as the carema is found:)

Alas Miss Emma is up and look at that she knew just where to find the here are some shots

Here is A-Z it is coming slowly
The Big Zipper was finally put on stretcher bars that were stitchable... not much progress- this is my movie project as the holes are so big lol.
This is my purse/work project -it's a stocking from the JCS ornament issue. I didn't leave a whole lot of fabric in between so I will have to see how it turns out.Emma inform me this is a smokey topaz not a moonstone - my bad. It's lovely whatever it is :)

Here are the flowers the kids sent me :0) so pretty. That's all for now - whew that was an update... I will try not to leave it so long next time....

I'm so very glad it's Sunday!!!

I don't have pics right now but promise I will later. I have managed to stitch a very little this weekend but there is progress! Emma and I are heading to Winner's this morning as she has a plan (that kid always has a plan...) I worked a 14 hour day yesterday as I opened and then was serving coffee at two wine festival events. I am a little tired today. I still have to do my P90X which is going quite well. It is HARD and I was calling it P90 extra ugly yesterday but I shall keep going as it is working SHOCKER- exercise works lol.

I turn 40 on Wednesday and I am actually looking forward to it. My sister,Mom and I are going to Seattle to shop on Thursday as a celebration. We call it the run for the border... I really don't need anything but it should be fun.

Not much more to share so I will sign off for now. Have a great Sunday I plan on it!
