Why does it seem like there's never enough time???

Well it has taken me forever yet again to post an update.... why I can't seem to find the time here or other places is beyond me. I sometimes wish for the Centaurian time mentioned in Men in Black (you know 37 hour days) but wonder if I would use the time any better with that than I do now.

Anyway moving along...work is going pretty good. I'm involved in the asset tracking team, having to write my self evaluation for Monday and get through the beginnings of November close

Stitchingwise I just helped out a friend with a piece called high flight... just sent it back to her tonight for her to finish the french knots. Otherwise it was completely finished.I am working on aduck stamp until Saturday and then I am picking up another piece from a friend while passing the duck stamp along. I am waiting for a couple of pieces of fabric to come in to kit up more projects.....like I really need to do that...but I want something new before I go back and finish out a few others that I have started and not too far from finished. I also have more obligation stitching for a few baby bibs for them. I have one started and I'm hoping the rest will move quickly.

I just want to get things organized around the house and picked up. I'd love to get some bills paid off too but things will move as they are meant to. My other hobbies are doing well. Just added a pretty neat piece to one of my favorite fan fiction sites. They have a group of writers that add sections one at a time and the next person needs to carry the story forward. Anyway I was pretty impressed with my entry and the major hosts of the group were as well even though they did polish it a bit to carry the overall "feel" of the story forward. I also have a game site where I have a good group of friends, they do weekly challenge badges every week and I'm on pace to finish current year and by next year have the back years done as well.

Anyway I need to get back stitching...so I had better run

A Hodgepodge of my life now

Here’s what is going down in my life right now.


It has gotten busy to points and I’m glad; though there are days like today, I wish I had more in my lap to work on. It has been crazy with project accounting and quarter stuff having to be done almost on top of each other. I will be leaving here on time if I can help it since it is soccer practice night. I’m about to be working on budget, and relocation stuff for payroll for the next week or so until month end. The cycle will then repeat. The people are really nice and I’m starting to fit in I think.


I think the teenage thing is starting early for that gal. There are times that she can be sooooo stubborn. She wants to do things on her time and her terms. I must say that she gets it honestly. One thing though is that she pushes it a bit further than I used to do. My mom would allow me to pout and express it a bit but then enough was enough and I had better stop. She seems to be doing pretty well in school and loves her teacher. We have gotten used to the homework every night thing and I haven’t seen her balk at it.

She kind of likes soccer too. I am not totally thrilled with her coach and I might express it on the year end reporting. I understand that the 3rd and 4th grade girls can be chatty and she needs to install some discipline but I think she’s taking it a bit far. She had 1 girl sit out most of the last game (she would have been sitting out 1 period anyway) just for talking over her in between periods while she was giving instructions. She was also telling the gals that they will be able to add to the punishment (laps, sit-ups or whatever) during this practice coming up. I think it was punishment enough for the gal to be forced out of playing that game. We pay for the t-shirt and ref fees in order for the gals to play. The league doesn’t stress scores or winning or losing but working on skills and improving them.


Has been kind of off and on as I have been doing a bit on other “hobbies” (helping friends get their Pogo badges last week). I have stitched a bit for the stitchathon; but between the work stress and home things going on, it hasn’t been as much as I’d like. I have been working on Robins finish it piece and now will also have to push to get SIF 05 ready to move on. There are also other pieces to move ahead with too, some my stitching and some “obligation.” Well just need to push and move on ahead.

Well that’s it for now. More as time allows me to update!

New Beginnings

I decided to scrap my initial few posts and re try to start this up (especially since it is a link on a bb I frequent). That board also has a journal area in which I have spent more time than here....oooops!!!! I need to remember to hit both of them at the same time from now on just to keep both of them moving on.

I'll up date this one with more later!!!
