In my own little corner.

As I started to think about writing this I was reminded of my favorite part of the Cinderella play that aired on TV when I was a child. While her stepmother and stepsisters were getting ready for the ball. She sat in a little chair and sang a song of all the imaginary places she would go to and all the things she would do while sitting safely all alone in her little corner in her own little chair.

November 8 is the 4th anniversary of my marriage to Tag. Three months before this date we made our plans, first of which was to make sure we had to whole week off from work. We talked about the places we could go, the people we could visit, the things we could and how much it would cost. Redid the budget so bill would get paid and we could still vacation.

We talked about visiting Terri in KY. She had been having some difficult times being alone and I just wanted to reassure her that she was close enough for us to get to her and just hang out with her for a couple days.

We talked about visiting the Murphy is SC. It had been a while since we heard from them and so it would be nice to visit them and see Debbie and Michelle. They have boat like the gateway clipper fleet here in the city so it would be fun to try out there and have dinner or a lunch cruise would also be nice. I was sure that we could do this and visit Terri.

We talked about visiting his sister in TN. She just bought a Condo and the pictures are very nice and it would be fun to hang out there and pretend like we lived there. At least until she came home from work every day.

But not of these were very romantic vacations and focused on us just being together.

SL at work gave me a great idea for a vacation. I talked to Tag and he agreed that it was more like what he wanted to do. It was a beautify resort in Myrtle Beach. Big hotel rooms some had Jacuzzi tubes. It was confirmed that we would do this. However the money was not there for us to make the reservation. I wanted for him to let me know when to set it up. That day never came.

The problems with plans are that they are always changing so those are imaginary until they happen! Because while you are planning you are imagining all the things you will say, do etc.

So Monday October 29th I learn that he made plans to do work on the weekend of our anniversary vacation. I asked how this is to be. It was explained to me that we were not staying the whole week. Oh, then he said we have to use your pocket money for the trip.

My pockets are empty with my pocket money in it. O, please man! So no anniversary vacation. So should I just sit all alone in my own little corner all alone in my own little chair? Yea, right!

S Sew Together Session  May 27, 28!
It's great when you are with friends of like mind who love the same things you do.  Well this weekend time to capitalize on that idea.
Time to Sew Together!!
I sent out the invites actually it was a series of text and phone calls and created a buzz for myself that is very uplifting!  I am so excited. 
The way I have envision this;  everyone will come over about 6 to 7 people and bring what ever project they are working on and sew in the same room together.  I just love this idea!   
JN is going to make a apron for her make up job.  She was asked to do the make for the  brothers who will be on screen at our Regional Convention!  I am so happy for her.   AA will be making curtains she is getting things ready  for her redecorating month.

The Sewing Machine were in place and supplies are available just waiting for the people to arrive. 

I am very happy to have ventured out of my comfort zone it was very empowering to accomplish this!

Some who are learning were happy and frustrated.  Lining the top of the dress can be a challenge but she conquered it! 

I cannot wait to see the finish projects of all those who took advantage of the event to start a project.

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…
