The trip to KY was fun. I had the little designers with me and they kept busy by coloring pages and attempting to watch DVD which is nearly impossible since the sun was high in the sky. Just listening to the movie must have been boring because they often fell asleep. Todd had no problem sleeping during the 3 hours I drove.

Terri is doing well. She has surrounded herself with friends that have her best interest at heart and help keep her well grounded. Her one bedroom place is wonderful and I would love to live like that if I were not married. The living room has a fireplace with sliding glass doors the lead to the balcony. Her dining room is just off from the kitchen which has hook up for a fullsize washer and dryer. Her bedroom is a nice size and the bathroom is also nice space. In her bedroom she was this wonderful walk in closet with shelving on each side with an place in the rear to hand her clothes.

She did not have a dress for the graduation day so Saturday we went to the outlet mall and she found a couple of beautiful dress. The one she really loved was a white sundress with openwork around the him of it.

She said it made her feel Jackie O. Which is a good way to feel.

Once i get the pictures on the computer you can compare yourself.

We did not get to go horseback riding so I guess that will be for another occasion. The little designers brought back candy with kentucy written on them for their friends at school. Also these little lady when they want to go out to eat they want Red Lobster or Applebees not Mcdonalds or Wendys. They will eat Mcdonald or Wendys but why when they could go someplace better. Never mind that they order the samething at applebees that they could get at a fast food resturant.

We arrived home on Monday early around 4:30 in the afternoon. To tired to do much more than pull stuff out of the suitcase and then comming to the realization that their is no food in the house we went shopping for food. Then I was two tired to do anything more. Thankfully Short Person had cooked some chicken wings I truly appreciated that. She is a wonderful little person.

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

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…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
