Getting back to work.

Sunday I get back to my sewing projects. I have been stuck in neutral since before the holidays so I have set a date to get out of this slump. Sunday February 21, 2010. I will prep my stuff in the morning. Go to my religious services that afternoon after that participating in hospitality by assisting with the lunch/dinner for the visiting elder that will be doing the public address. Then sewing!

My little designer has drawn 5 different outfits and we will have to get started searching for fabrics. I will be taking her with me to the Salvation Army Fabric Fair this year it is the best way for her to find all the fabric that she wants for her designs and I will be able to afford to purchase them for her. She is a smart little girl all her clothing will be for September, return to school, so the fashion show can happen sometime in the summer. This gives us lots at time but if we do not plan correctly we will be going frantic when the time comes.

Tomorrow I am going to meet Betty…

I wasnt going to post this.

I was not going to post this but it has been on my mind for 3 days now and I have to purge.
Betty's blog hit the nail on the head.

A friend's daughter just had a baby. I went to the hospital to see the little bundle of joy and I was so happy that I did. She is the cutest little girl baby. I was holding her and wishing that she would open her eyes. But she wiggled and cried. She has the little pudgy nose, beautiful jet black straight hair. I counted all her fingers and just could picture her as little girl. I am looking forward to watching her grow up. She finally stopped crying and I just held her. While holding the baby I listen to the conversation around me.

" Is the father coming to see her or was he already here."

" Oh I don't know the father I had Artificial Insemination. I really wanted to have a baby for sometime but my girl friend never wanted any. So last year when we broke up I decided that I would have a baby. I wanted a really pretty child so…

Slap the Eyebrows off someone Face

There are a lot of things that just make me want to slap the eyebrows off someone face. The number one thing that make we feel that way is when someone makes up in their mind that I am a slacker.

There is a new employee in our department and she has no idea of what each person does in the department. That is not the correct way to explain it. She knows the job description and has made it up in her mind that she will be a widget processor. She was trained what is to be done for scheduling but she has decided that she will do just one function of that job and leave the rest to everyone else. Everyone else in her mind is me.

She had really decided that anything that she does not want to so I should do. She mistakes my usual mild manner to mean and that she can delegate what she does not want to do to me. She will ask for help on something and then give it to me like I am to take it and complete it. I usually give it back tell her I have work that needed to be done so she needs to…

Not sure what to do.

Friday was the last day of work for my hubby. Today is sunday and he is never off on a sunday so he was not sure of what to do with his time.

He said lets go for a drive so I went along. After a while I noted the familar route he was taking. " Do you forget something in the office? "

"I just want to make sure the new guy is okay" Hump was my reply.

So we make it to the office and the new guy is doing fine because he is not alone, one of the daytime dispatcher was working with him. Once he determine that the guy was going to be ok we left.

He said. " I thought they were leaving him alone and I just wanted him to know that I will help out if needed." I just nodded my head and enjoyed the ride home.

When we got home. " What do you usually do on Sunday's"

" Clean."

" What do you clean?" I just looked at him. So he vaccumed the living room and hallway while I cleaned up the bathroom and gather the stuff for the wa…

Of serious concern.

There are time when we all tend to overdwell on something and this is something of serious concern to me right now. I probably will surface from time to time so please bare with me when I occasionally purge about CAPITAL. This may come up from time to time and since my blog has not real direction I figure I may as well add this to the subject matter. It may come up more now because I am consumed with thinking of ways to save, budget, earn fix my thinking when it comes to money.

Financial Diary

I have decided to keep a financial dairy or Journal. This decision is because I am always losing sight of my financial goals. This happens with many different aspects of life for me. I lose weight when I am keeping a food diary of what I eat and how I felt when I ate it etc. and gain the weight when I stop. I complete more sewing projects when I keep a Journal of the daily thought and happenings.Forget completely about my projects when I stop writing about what I am doing. So I am …

No going anywhere today.

Because of all the snow every where and the county is in a state of emergency we stayed home. I had tickets for In the Heights but the afternoon performance was cancelled. So we will have to catch it later while it is still in the city.

My little niece has changed the name of her line or I got it wrong to begin with. It is Unnaturally Cool. She has and image of a rose which grows naturally in an unnatural color which makes it cool. The rose is green with pink dots and the stem is red. So I am working on creating this image for use in her clothing line. I will create some fabric print and get it printed at spoon flower it can be used as lining in some jackets, purses, hats and other times it can be the actually fabric print.

Her designs are for the fall season so we have all summer to create these 10 looks. As soon as the weather breaks we will get a better scheduled done as we can work together each week until it all done. I have her doing some research in fashion magazin…

Just something else to be added to the list.

The list is not a list of projects that I am working on. The list is not a list of resolutions that I would make and never achieve. The list is trouble and more troubles.

Top of the list, My father in law is back in the hospital again. Same problem as before but not as serious at the first hospital stay. He was home for 3 days and just as Saturday was starting off to a relaxing day of running errand and making sure his dad was doing ok the phone rang. Todd took off to the hospital because this time the ambulance was called before Todd was called. To his relief the doctors told him it was not as bad as before but there is an active bleeder somewhere and they have to find it.

The endoscope did not show where the bleeder was but there was a big clot in the same place as before. The location of this clot was near the area where the stomach ends and the intestine start. I looked this up on the internet this area is call the pyloric canal. From what I read it could be cause by sto…
