Now my head hurts...

I am in training for the Rockin Roll half in Phoenix.We run Jan 16 and it's early days. I forgot how much I really need to hydrate.I sweat thru my head something fierce- so attractive- oh yeah baby... The most nasty part is I get a dehydrated headache --- oh joy. I did get some stitching done this morning and a picture is coming I promise.I am off to bed as tomorrow is another day :)

Until next time,


I love Sundays ...

Today will be a busy day of cleaning, big purchases (SKI PASSES AND VACATION PKGES TO PHOENIX) and hopefully stitching. I am watching New Moon right now and enjoying the peace and quiet - the black and whites are occassionally barking. I have made little progress in the stitching department but will post a picture later.

Until next time

I accomplished nothing today!

Just an update to say I accomplished nothing today... Well not true- I ran two miles,bought Phil a belated birthday present and stewed about work. I have to find a new job--- or a new brain because mine will not stop running a million miles an hour... Ugh

Until next time



Groceries,2 mile run,dr's appointment,weight watchers, soccer training ,house cleaning stitching room organized-etc... It's going to a be busy day. I am hoping to get a lot done but who knows if it will happen-I would also like to get some stitching done... OK so I guess I should get going... uuugggghhhh

Home is good!

I am home... I love it! Las Vegas is great but home is wonderful! I am very tired not from "too much Las Vegas" just from too many opening shifts since I've been back. I love my job truly it's just been lot since coming home...
I must confess I have not stitched one bit. I have been rereading old Nora Roberts books and vegging... My system does not do well flying into the dessert and then flying out -it makes me dizzy so I can't  really put my neck down for long periods of time. I am so lame... I wish it would pass soon. WHAT A WHINNER! I do have a rotten migraine which is on the tail end...WHINNER!
I am making roast beast with ALL the trimmings tonight as my man has been out working all day. I hope he enjoys. As it is cooking I am watching "Lettere to Juliet" with the actress. So far so good. I am lucky!

Until next time...

Off to Vegas tomorrow... must shave legs and arm pits...

I am finally caught enough at work to feel that I won't be thinking about all the things I forgot to do before I left. I am almost packed and was informed by Emms that I need to shave my legs and arm pits... It is true and maybe because of the cold weather I have looked the other way in this area so it is next on my list. I am battling a wee bit of a migraine... ssshhh don't tel Phil or my mother as I believe an I told you so may come from them and RIGHTFULLY so as I may have overdid it just a wee bit this week...

I am sad Phil is not coming to Vegas and it has put a damper (well small damper) on my trip. I am now thinking about what I may stitch on the plane tomorrow while watching a repeat of the Mentalist. Mags is making dinner and I am just chillin with my thoughts and the blog... I will try an update while I'm away-

One handed... the other is full of a glass of vodka and soda

forgive the lack of capitalization as i am typing one hand because my other is otherwise occupied... so how did today start... the kitchen at 5am still had all the dishes from last night dinner--- not happy as dinner was rissoto and killer coleslaw. my parting shot to phil(after my skirt zipper broke and the zit on my face did not feel cover up would work) was "maybe i'll crash my car on the way to work and then you all will appreciate me"--- hhhmmm i'm still here and phil didn't call the store to find out if i crashed - he did read the riot act to the kids and the kitchen was clean when i got home 18 hours i am attemptinng to block out the discussing of who got new soccer "boots" and who didn't while i silently sip my mandrin and soda...phil is kicking the black and whites off the bed ever couple of minutes and i am slowly sipping...i have to be up in 6 hours and ben has just informed me i have dark circles under my eyes--- awesome - i guess this is goodnight...

School day two...and the puppies

Day two at school went well - mags is looking after our neighbours kids 2 or 3 days a week which means Ben and his friends are walking home--- It took them almost an hour to walk 2 km today. Ben has a cell phone and I finally called him and he informed me "we picked up some friends along the way" ok apparently when you pick up friends you walk much slower...

Yes, you  are looking at a purse, headband ,bra and a dog chewy- Why? Well my Oscar buried it because he was "hiding it "from Felix...
Yes these items were on the floor in my bedroom...

First day of school - done!

It was good! The kids seem happy with all school type things. I got some stitching in and the dogs got a bath and groom--- all in all a successful day. I did get a migraine but it was expected (really it was) I am currently medicated and ready for bed. I am going to Vegas on Sunday and not at all ready --- apparently it's 38 degress there AWESOME. I am thinking about getting ready really I am... REALLY-

Until next time...
